New Year Lunch

Durign the 1st 2 to 3 days of CNY, most food stalls are closed. Those that are open, will have exorbitant price.. like $4 per bowl of noodles or etc.. even the drinks are 30cent xtra per can. The set vegetarian meal we had on the 1st day of CNY was no cheaper...

And thus most of the time we opt to eat in..

Today, lunch was simple yellow noodles with HockChew fishball.

While Granny was still alive, our reunion dinner will always be steamboat, and we will have alot of Hock chew fish ball to go with.. Reason being... we r Hockchew..
While its call fish ball... actualy there are meat filling within it.. thats what makes it special.
Those days there isnt frozen HC fishball. Instead its made/bought fresh from the market. I remember few years bk the old lady was still selling these at the wet market in town.. I guess she dont sell these anymore...

I decided to include this in the CNY lunch since its a good reminder fof my own dialect group.

Hock Chew Fishball Noodles

The fresh fishballs are alwasy laided with loads of minced meat within, and when u bite thru them the yummy juice will oozed out..(think xiao long pau)
Unfortunately, the frozen one does not have much juice as I expected..

HC Fishball

While Dear is no Hockchew.. he thoroughly enjoyed these since the early days during our courtship.. I still rem we will go to the old airport market to patronise this stall that sells fantastic Hockchew fishball noodles.

Looks like its time for me to go bk to the market for a bowl of this =)
