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.

What a fun and delicious way to catch up with friends! I love condiments, so this noodle dish would be ideal.
It’s a perfect dish to eat with friends slowly over long conversations and laughter 🙂
Thanks, I’m hungry now! 😛
Also, just wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on our “love story” the other day… that meant a lot to me. 🙂
Very best of luck to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by Jenni!
Means a lot to me 🙂
Looks great! I’m a huge garlic lover too. Fried, roasted, you name it. But if I had to choose one condiment to put over annnything it would probably be sriracha.
I’ve never tried sriracha.
Now I must 🙂
Looks yum, Charis!
Incidentally, we were sometimes served this for dinner at school. Only, it was put up as “Cow Sway” on the menu board. It was the third most dreaded item on the school menu after “Veg Stew” and “Sindhi Besan”. 😀
That sounds super disturbing Karan! Poor you!
But what is this awful Sindhi Besan?? 🙂
I want the recipe!!!!!!! please!!!!
Yum! This blog always makes me so hungry 🙂
I’m officially hungry.
Thanks for stopping by Kathy 🙂
beautiful and refreshing…. A blast of childhood memories… 😀
