    1. Jessie, haha.. i can have a big bowl too :) I love n miss my mum's beehoon soup so much.

    2. Good morning Jane! Got up at 6am this morning & can't go back to sleep, so think of making "ban mien," wish me luck. I'm going to follow your recipe as to how to marinate the minced pork! Will come back later to look at your new post! Cheers!

    3. Man, got up at 6am but only had my bowl of ban mien at 2pm, luckily Ethan & Isabelle had bread, no need to wait for my noodle, otherwise will be starve to death, hahaha! Love the minced pork recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    4. Jessie, I woke up 7 dis morning. Had a prayer n run after sending kids to school. Made my melon bun n chicken rice. Did my washing as well. Had my bun & coffee at 1pm. Haha.. Looks like my hands are faster than yours right? Anyway, u r tight up with kids and I did my works freely. So this is the difference between us. Next time i am sure u will got ur ban mian before 12pm :)
      You see, last time when i was young i dont like black sauce. But now getting older, I love black sauce in my dishes. That is why i always make my minced pork a bit dark brown. hihi...

    5. Yoh, show off lah show off lah, hahaha! Hana, have small children around. Actually made some prawn balls too yesterday & the prawn balls were cooked by 9.30. Took so much of time to peel off the shell & got rid of the prawn dirts. Then, started to get ingredients out for "ban mien," then realised that I didn't have enough plain flour, 昏! Went out to buy the flour, rushed Ethan to brush teeth, rushed Isabelle to go to toilet, bla bla bla, that's why neh......
