Stir Fried Dried Lily Buds with Black Fungus

Surprisingly tasty stir fried vegetarian dish with a mixture of ingredients.  The sauce  is appetising, savoury, sourish and sweet.  Blends well with the ingredients.
The seasoning is doubled cos' I wanted some sauce to cook the pineapples and cucumber.  With more sauce, the black fungus and fried beancurd skin are able to soak up some of the flavours.
