Happy TGIF !! It’s finally Friday !! It has been a long tiring week for me as I am desperately in need of sleep ! Actually I wasn’t that busy to begin with in this week but somehow whenever it comes to the time for me to knock out, I just couldn’t get myself to bed. So I’ll be finding all kinds of stuffs to do and when that happens, it somehow makes you more energetic and by the time you fall in, you realise it’s also almost time you gotta wake up for work again the following day ! LOL.
Just imagine last night, it was at 12 midnight before I decided that my bedroom was pretty messy and so I did a mini spring cleaning of it, including vacuuming and cleaning up the space. And by the time I was done, it was clearly past 1 am. So you can imagine my quite zombie-ness during the day. But fortunately it was a TGIF day so it wasn’t that tough to pull through the day. And here I am, with my eyes half closing, trying to pen down this post before I called it a day.
Usually I would try to take an Instagram break on Friday nights, to spare myself from the addictiveness of social media. Haha. But blogging is kinda different. I felt liked I am doing something constructive whenever I blogged. Quite therapeutic I would say. Liked penning down your thoughts and writing a daily journal. But too bad I had a very desk bound job which ties me to the computer for a good 8 hours during the day. Hence, I tried to limit myself not to look at the computer screen again in the evenings. So as much as I wished I could blog more often, sometimes the reality of life does get me over.
Nevertheless, I will still try my best to pen down whenever I can. So here I am, recording another recipe, this time with both videos and pictorial ! LOL. Really take some effort to make it all into this little space and so hope you will appreciate this homely dish of mine ~ Stir Fry Flat Yellow Noodles with Seafood. In fact, there’s no specific name for this dish so I just anyhow come up with one. It’s a bit liked our Fried Hokkien mee, the dark soya version but using a flat yellow noodles this time.
My choice of seafood in this dish is basically some fish slices and imitation crab sticks which probably couldn’t be even labelled as a seafood. LOL. But feel free to add in additional prawns, squids or scallops as you wish.
This is more to a dry version of the stir fry noodles. If you prefer a braised version, you could simply adjust with more stock/water and stop way before the sauce gets dry up. I pretty much enjoyed this dish because the flat yellow noodles was by itself quite nice, way better than the hokkien round yellow noodles IMHO.
Enjoy and have an awesome weekend ahead !!
