Kon Loh Meen Dinner

I just love chinese food. Dunnoe why, but western dishes doesn't "spurs me up" unless I'm craving for one. hehe...

Tonight was a one dish meal again. Very satisfied with this. Me being greedy, added alot more ingredients to balance the meal. It has been ages since I ate Kon Loh Meen. And surprisingly, the dried egg noodles I used turned out very well. Thank God I didn't overcook it, if not it'll turn soggy which I dislike most. :)

So here's my version & hubby gave thumbs up for it. Do try and let me know how U feel about it.

How U Cook It:
