Chow Mien (Stir Fried Chinese Yellow Noodle 炒面) for Toddler

“Get a child to get oyster mushrooms in this simple vegetarian Chow Mien? How about having it better by adding the super food, Quinoa, as well as liquid aminos, into his meals?”

My son loves the Chinese yellow noodle (Chinese alkaline noodle), usually being prepared in soup as fish balls noodle soup selling at most of the hawker centers, food courts and coffee shops in Singapore and other parts of Asia.

This thin yellow noodle would also commonly be cooked in fried noodle (Chinese Chow Mien) or the Mee Goreng (Indian fried noodle) style which easily found selling outside. Having that said, these fried noodles selling at the stores are usually over seasoned or spicy.

Mushrooms & Pea Sprouts Stir-Fry

“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”

In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.

Is Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences Malacca for you?

In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.

The interior of the hotel and its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with the reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze.

Bed in room was comfortable, and there is a 2-seater sofa as well as ‘see-through’ bath provided in the room. Not all rooms come with straight sofa seats, my parents’ room had the curvy seats which are unfit to lay flat down overnight. The hotel provides extra bedding at a reasonable rate, if third guest requires it.

I don’t think there are much scientific proof, besides having concrete findings that vinegar helps in body cleansing and detoxification (or similar effect). However, it does not equal to sure-successful weight lose effect. Only many (too many) hear-say that it helps a lot in slimming down, especially after the testimonial from one of the Japanese celebrity who lost 8kg in a month, many years ago.
