Home Cooked Fry Yee Mee 炒伊麺

2011_06_26 Home Cooked Yee Mee 007a

Exactly a month for not updating my blog,… what have I been doing? I’ve been busy… well, that’s the normal excuse for ourselves and for the readers. And, that will turn out to be most of us normally pick up too. Or, perhaps I was just finding sometime to settle down some thoughts in my mind, before I could start writing again or move on with whatever plans in mind.

Since settled down here, I have not been honestly adventurous enough to explore more food in the island. Not that am finding excuse but honestly, I am so lost that I do not know how to manage my own time to certain extend. I could barely split myself into this and that. When am too free, I have all the time in the world, but my mind isn’t functioning. In fact, what’s going on, uh?

Actually I have plenty of ideas in my mind and I wish I have the capability to do it… things like cook all the food that I’ve been reading from the web, invite friends and family to my small hut for a simple gathering, reading some books, etc… but some how, it’s just didn’t get it working. Apart from now that am grumbling over it, whatelse have been done then?

Oh yes, I’ve been cooking simple food for the 2 of us… how simple would it be with Fried Yee Mee?! Mom’s version is always sumptuous and ‘luxury’ to me. Why would I said that, you could always see something like octopus, fish fillet, pork fillet, prawns, vegetables, and others ingredients.

Where else, mine was simplified compared to mom. At least, I could feed the man at home with satisfactory grin. Isn’t that satisfying for the cook?
