My Way Of Cooking Loh Mee (Home Cooking)

This is my way of cooking Loh Mee (Home Cooking). During MCO (Movement Control Order), I tend to explore into cooking (I think not only myself but many others exploring cooking too) and I have cooked a few of my favorite dishes like curry pork, kong pao chicken and braised pork or chicken. And today, I trying my hands on “LOH MEE”.

My wife bought some yellow noodles (the thick type) last week and I have most of the ingredients available in the kitchen, time for my “loh mee” for the 1st time. Of course before I start cooking, I made some research online for the simplest recipe and improvise it a bit on my own.
