15 dried red chillies, seeded, soaked in water till soft then drained
5 fresh red chilles
6 cloves garlic
15 shallots
100g dried shrimps, rinsed, soaked in water till soft, drained and coarsely pounded
6Tbs fermented soya beans (taucheo)
400g dried rice vermicelli, soaked in water till soft, then drained
350g bean sprouts
100g Chinese chives, cut into 2cm-long strips
salt to taste
6 limes, halved

Too complicate item will be bye-bye.

I have raisins at home, so i add in raisins, i forgot that i should have add in the raisins into the flour, instead i add in last, that why the raisins sink into the bottom.

The other day when Sock Peng email me that she will be in Singapore yesterday and today, i was so happy as finally i'm able to meetup with her in person. Yesterday morning, i sms L-5 and ask him whether he wants to meetup with us and he readily agree. We have arrange to meetup for dinner at Ngee Ann City and i also get to meet Angela for the first time.
