  8. Hi Cheah, You are a blessing and inspiration to me! I tried
    The apricot n sultana cake, it's fantastic. Today I made the Sarsi chicken wings. My family loved it. Thanks so much for your generosity to share. I will try this beer cake.
    By the way, I could not find your recipe using the Ipoh Salted Chicken Spices Mix HERBALTON black pepper. Can I get the Mix from JB?

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
