Mee siam mai hum

I'm sure most of you are quite familar of the "famous" phrase "Mee Siam mai hum" made by our PM on the national day rally speech and the funny podcast on it by Mr Brown. Simply hilarious. Okay okay, I shouldn't go on before I get majorly flamed online.



Anyways, this was what we had yesterday. Home-made mee siam!!! Prepared by my lovely grandma of course. Every week, my gf and I will pop by my grandma's place and she'll whip up some good ol' home cooked dishes. It's the only chance I can get to taste home cooked food now and it really makes me want to go home :(



Ooo look what we've got. Other than the usual ingredients, we also had stir-fry vegetables, otah, watermelon and home-made Cheng Tng! (Too bad we didn't take a picture of it tho)Oh and by the way, the mee siam and cheng tng were specially cooked for Qin cause my grandma knew that she loved it. So nice right?! N she'll be leaving for Japan this Saturday to visit my cousin and her family. Wahaha, of course I took the chance to ask her to get some Hokkaido red beans! Look out for some home-made tau sar coming soon!



After the meal, which took an hour because we were watching a show (and during the entire our we kept stuffing ourselves!), we were so stuffed we can hardly walk!

For all of you who can get to have home-cooked meals everyday, please do cherish it. Despite my love for all the yummy hawker food, restaurants in Singapore, I would gladly trade it all just to go home for a delicious meal cooked by my mum. I miss her awesome mee siam, laksa, stir-fry beef and many, many other stuff :( I awefully miss my mum and dad and most of all my little sis. 3 months to go home and 11 months more of slavery...
