got a haircut the other day..the curly do was getting out of control and was starting to lose its shape..figured it was time to either redo it or lose it..decided on the latter as i WAS getting tired of the curls..or maybe deep down inside i just didn’t want to sport long hairdos anymore and didn’t realize it..so, i told my hairstylist that i wanted to change my look..
about three and a half hours later i was back to my old bob style..back to square one, i told Min on facebook..
i was so happy with how light-headed i felt, literally, once my hairstylist was done..i agreed with my reflection in the mirror that the bob style IS meant for me..and i owe it all to the love of my life, whom remarked that he liked my hairdo back when we first met..i’ve gotten so used to long hair these few years that it never once occurred to me to do a 360° turn, back to as mentioned earlier, square one..
so, now, my short tresses are so, so, soooo much easier to manage and doesn’t require much to style..and methinks this do is gonna outlive the rest that i’ve tried before..not that i’ve been adventurous much, ever..the curly look was the furthest i’ve ever gone and for now, i’m swearing off curls..goodbye unruly and difficult curls, hello again to free and easy locks~ =DDD
there’s this chinese noodles eatery that my family’s been going to for the past- – well, ever since i can remember..their noodle soup, dried noodle and curry noodle dishes used to be our weekend staple ever since i was little..my parents still frequent this eatery until now..mom for her usual kuey teow (flat rice noodles) soup, and dad, his bowl of piping hot curry noodles..when i was old enough, or rather, adventurous enough to try spicy food, i asked mom to order for me the curry noodles instead of the usual noodle soup..until now, i still think it’s the best curry noodles i’ve ever had..
the curry broth is just lip-smacking delicious..very flavourful, and not off-puttingly thick, just the way i like it..and whenever i cook curry noodles, i always try to get it as close to the eatery’s as i can..
so, below is my version of curry noodles, a recipe i haven’t changed in ages..
for the curry broth
for the chilli dipping paste
