Valeebelly’s back in business!

After a long hiatus from writing (the eating however went on at full steam), I am glad to kickstart my blogging spurt by featuring this Stir Fried Mee Siam recipe. A handful of you have showed interest in it so i hope this post serves you well 🙂

As usual, i rely on Uncle Jimmy to give me some guidelines on how to go about doing this. I had to tweak the recipe a little as some parts didn’t really make sense. Its my 2nd attempt at this dish… the first was pretty disastrous. Anyhows, i will leave you with the recipe. Will be writing more on some eateries I have visited while i was missing from cyberspace. Have put on so much weight since then. Geez.
