Hokkien mee night


The bf's family had a Hokkien mee party last night. Mind you, it's not the same kind you see in Malaysia with dark sauce. But because it's uncle's secret recipe, it's pretty damn dee-li-cious anyway.


Mise en place


Aunty prepping the kitchen


Uncle keeping a watchful sifu eye on the bf


With the kitchen all scrubbed...


...and the bf well equipped


...the crowd gathered to watch him in action


Fry!


The chef adding qi to his masterpiece


And voila! Singaporean-style Hokkien mee. Yum


The 1st person to be served is of course uncle, for his wisdom in Hokkien mee and patient teachings


The chef serving other guests


This is 1 proud family


Moving on...


It's Nat's turn! Here's Aunt Virgie and Nat prepping for ingredients for the second batch


It seems there are more interested spectators to this batch. Guess whose batch turned out better?


The crowd was fair and agreed both batches were "different." As much as I love the bf, I preferred Nat's. This just means more practice dear! *Kiss

Dugong and her granny


Yum


As everyone was busy eating, I couldn't resist shots of the house:






And so the night ended with pineapple tarts as it always does during CNY season. I am a diabetic waiting to happen.

The Hokkien mee looks fantastic! It's one of my favourite dishes to have when we eat out. I'll bet it tastes better homemade and with family around too. :o)
