Authentic Mee Rebus

As Mrs Lee's Cookbook describes, this is a dish of egg noodles with thick spicy sauce.

My beloved mom, a never tired cook, just found a cookbook after her own heart. Just as all thrifty housewife who usually only jot down recipes from books, she agrees to us buying her this cookbook after reading it in the national library. This goes to show how much she likes it.

Picture paints a thousand words - Sedap!
The greatest beneficiary is, of course my family.

As I savory this dish that we loved since childhood days, i feel moved and really proud of this cookbook and it's author, the late Lee Chin Koon. A sincere and great job done on preserving traditions through food and cooking.

Although the preparation is complex and time-consuming, follow closely the instructions in the book and you cannot go wrong. It's truly well-deserving of the 2003 Gourmand Best Cookbook Awards.

Highly recommended for adept cook:

热 Ramen

On the mode of 'instant noodles' on the microwave, my Korean ramen was cook for 5 mins, stir over and after another cooking of 5 mins.

This is the soft yet chewy version of noodles i lo o o ve...

Not for vegetarian though as it's powdered soup base consists of beef extract and flavouring.

A simple yet hot and spicy breakfast to start my busy Saturday of laundry washing, room cleaning and, of course computering.

Bright and sunny today!! Great for sunning blankets, cushion cover, laundry... you name it. And after which, i can smell the sunshine in them, Mmmm...

Even the greens in my little aquarium is enjoying the basking in the sun. Beautiful...

House of Cards

First saw this card tower being done on tv in a local army drama, 新兵小传 (by Huang Wen Yong 黄文永), it is said to display discipline and patient of oneself.

So being young and innocent then, we kids tried very hard building it up. Almost to tears, blaming each other when it falls.

Today, seeing my Canon advertising cards laying around, without purpose. I made it useful, and build this. So happy, almost going to dance around it.

It feels surprisingly easy, as compared to my younger days.
Your next advertising idea, Canon?

Sun and Rain

Such is the weather in Singapore island, and i love this mixture of Sun and Rain. The absence of either one would be unthink of.
The rain had washed the greens all clean and fresh, with wet droplets still on the metal railings. The air smells cool and heavenly.

It's been freezing cold today, with the wind blowing constantly into my room. The wind chime in the garden singing gently. My feet and fingers just feels icy. But this is the kind of weather i like. The sun will shine again tomorrow.

This, my first posting on Little Joy.
Seeking joy in the little things of life,
Such are the simple Joy and Blessings i count.
