Food For The Unwell - Mee Suah

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I AM HOME SICK...

Not the actual "homesick" sick but at home feeling unwell... Not sure when the last time was, if I were still working, I would have taken two days medical leave and rest at home.  Alas, now every day is a holiday, so sick or no sick, I can rest all I like.

Started with "itchiness" in the throat, stinging and dryness and I filled myself with water and more water.  Water means fruit fuices, lime, hot oatmeal and anything to soothe the dryness... Suddenly appetite was also gone.. the taste buds vanished in thin air... Rice is out of the question, I want to eat something oil-less, clear and soupy....
Late in the evening, my girl bought this home... 
She said this brand is nice.... 
Yes, very familiar brand, I think I ate this when I was a young girl... 
Each bundle tied up with a thin red thread.... 
Would one be enough?
No, I ended up making two for each person... 
Put in lots of greens, meatballs, minced meat and two lighten beaten eggs....
Might not look appetizing but I "walloped" them all.... 
No appetite is an understatement... LOL... 
Oh, I want to get well real fast... 
I haven't even TASTE any Durians as yet!
huhuhuuuu...

  1. Whoah! I also ate from the same box of mee suah with the old God of Longevity brand. I remember this well before Maggi Mee flooded the market. Now I wanna go and buy one box to cook for myself. My servant used to thrown in one egg with half cube of chicken stock. Presto!

    I would advise you to buy a good brand of Lavender's essential oil. It could guarantee to prevent any sore or itchy throats away by just rubbing your affected spot on your neck. I have been doing that for years for instant relief and no more sore throats.

    Meesua is also nice with chicken soup, especially the Foochow red wine chicken soup.

  8. Oh Claire, I am so sorry you are sick. Maybe it is a cold? You are almost never sick! But this looks like a good meal for a sick person...protein, broth, and greens. I hope you get well really fast!

    It is good to eat mee sua rather than rice when sick

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
