Homemade Mee Hun Kueh

For generation , pan mee has been our family's all time favourite. Maybe I should just name my blog as " My Family All Time Favourite" , LOL. Cooking homemade pan mee has been a norm to our family . Whenever I told my mom that I am gonna cook pan mee , she will definitely say " good , good ".

Happily , whoever that is free to help will definitely help up to prepare ingredients to make pan mee. I will definitely be the one to prepare the dough . Mom will be the one to help preparing the soup and all . One little secret to share , although I know lots about cooking and all , I actually do not have the skill to fry crispy shallot. LOL. Mom laughed at me saying " Man , I didn't know you actually don't know the secret of frying crispy shallots " .. and she went like .. wahahahahahahahha all the way . I was really blushing at that time yeah. Thanx to my mom . heehee. At least I got the tips and secrets of frying crispy shallots from her after her big fat laugh. Worth it though.. LOL

  2. Another interesting little bit of D&G luxury watches could be the model of DW0197 with a colorful dial splashed across and with a metal strap in an attempt
    to crucify the intense effect. If you have a heavy,
    large wrist and a sizable hand, you're easily able to put on the bulkier chronograph and bezel styles made by companies for example Tag Heuer. He's always on point and entertaining to
    view and hear whether he's giving a press conference or appearing over a popular talk show like he did last night for the "Late Show" with Dave Letterman.

  3. 18 kg, though it has not hindered users, rather it improved
    stability with the device when functioning. The
    Kitchen - Aid hand blender by Immersion is a sleek, ergonomic small hand blender which has a powerful motor for mixing and blending small jobs when you don't want to bring out the larger hand mixer or the big countertop blender. From this top end the chopping, blending or whisking options can be attached.
