Some friends met on Friday.
Now since these friends have known each other forever, a number of (silly) activities were (obviously) indulged in.
Activities included were:
Drinking white wine
Taking photographs that weren’t great (blame the wine)
Singing songs together
And smiling (lots and lots of smiling)
These are some of the things my crazies and me did recently.
We also ate Khow suey.
Khow suey is a traditional Burmese noodle dish. It involves noodles, and a rich coconuty gravy (usually with chicken, beef, or shrimp) that you eat with a number of condiments.
The noodles and gravy taste fantastic, but it’s the condiments that are the real fun part 🙂
Together they create a perfect balance of taste and texture in your mouth- sweet, spicy, creamy, tangy, crunchy- all in one mouthful.
Condiments for Khow suey differ from region to region, and you can choose almost anything you like.
These are the ones we had.
Hard boiled eggs
Deep fried noodle bits
Fried garlic (my favourite one 😛 )
How beautiful is that?
It is a bowl of comfort, nestled in happy memories.
Much like old friends.
