Curry Noodle, Rice Porridge, Prawns With Glass Noodle

This was on Valentines Day. It was just like any ordinary day.

Morning sky at 7:55am.
Sun rays shining through the dark clouds.
After morning walk, we drove to Pusat Makanan Ye Sing, Taman Bandaraya for breakfast. We ordered our favourite curry noodle. Current price is RM6.50 per bowl.
I collected some of the arrowhead shoots from the compost, washed it and placed them in a mini fish bowl. I am curious to see whether these shoots will grow well in water.

We had something to settle in town, so we ended up having lunch in Restoran Kar Heng, Jalan C.M. Yusuff (former Jalan Chamberlain), Ipoh.
Hubby ordered chu chap chook. I ordered pork porridge.
Mixed innards porridge (chu chap chook) with fried intestine.
We shared this plate of deep fried fresh water fish.
Surprisingly, hubby enjoys this deep fried fresh water fish.
Total cost of lunch - approx RM17.
I want to see if these arrowhead shoots will make good household plants.

For Valentines Day's dinner, I tried out a recipe which my elder son recommended to me. It is a Thai dish called Goong Ob Wonsen which is Ginger Shrimp & Glass Noodle.
I had home grown ginger, big prawns and glass noodle (mung bean noodle) at home. I have to do without the spring onions and cilantro. No problem because hubby doesn't like cilantro.
It is a very easy recipe to follow.
I used the only packet of mung bean noodle available at home.
It was just enough for 2 portion. Each portion with 4 big prawns.
It was very delicious and will hope to cook again soon. 1 packet of mung bean or glass noodle is not enough for 2 people. In future, I need to use one and half packet of glass noodle or try substituting the glass noodle with rice vermicelli.


Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord! How good you are!
Your love for us continues on forever.
Who can ever list the glorious miracles of God?
Who can ever praise him half enough?
(Psalm 106:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. I saw some very nice curry mee at a coffee shop here yesterday but no, I don't think I want to go back there to give it a try. It's a very popular place, always a lot of people and has appeared in the list of places with positive cases a number of times. I consider such places high risk, best avoided.
    What fresh water fish is that, so meaty?
    Gosh!!! Your seawater prawns are so big, look like freshwater udang galah!

  3. Hmmm, those noodles look yummy! Is that mint?
    Oh, those shoots... interesting, please keep updates. Beautifully arranged, too!
    I never had porridge. Looks kinda... "slimey", LOL. Can´t imagine the texture.
    The fish with the "green" looks like a cute dinosaur. How could you eat that, I think I would´ve kept... ah no, might get smelly.
    Sadly those crabby things are not for me - bet it is healthy. But so sweet your Son gives you a recipe for Valentine´s day!!

  15. Curry Noodle and Rice Porridge, I will eat anytime. The Prawns With Glass Noodle sounds superb but is it spicy? Because usually Thai dish is a bit spicy.

  20. Ngaku plants are pretty. Don't think they last very long though.

    To me glass noodles would taste better as mihun would be starchy and soft.

    1. You are right, Stacy. The ngaku plants don't do well in water. Looking for another plant to replace the ngaku plants. I too prefer glass noodle.
