Hi Betty, these ingredients and method can also be used to cook hand made mee suah or Teochew mee teow. Blanch the noodles before frying. It's good. If you like, just a some dark soy sauce for colour.

Hi Jozelyn, I used the salty chai por but you can add both, it should be good too.

Hi Aunty Young, as I say when we are 'attacked' by the lazy bug, simple dishes like this does help. I supposed we can also add the little bits and pieces of other ingredients to it to clear the fridge.

Hi Kimmy! Chai Por was one of my late grandpa's favourite. My grandma used to cook some kind of soup and put chai por. I think this meehoon is extra delicious due to addition of chai por. Would love to try it!
