3M For Merdeka Day!

Wondering what's the 3M stands for? It's my marketing, "masak" and "makan". Haha…

Well, after came back from hospital, hubby and I dropped by the Batu Lanchang Market to buy some ingredients. Batu Lanchang market aka the rich people's market is our family's favorite market although we are not considered as rich people. Ahem! Who cares? Well, in this market, you can find lots of stuffs, especially fresh seafood. Whenever my mom wants to buy crabs, she will pay a visit to this market. Oh yea, this market is a bit different. Unlike other market, this market only operates in the afternoon.

Previously all the hawkers were running their business at Greenland, near the lorong at the "Genting" place before they shifted here. I used to follow my parents on their weekly marketing trip when I was a little girl. The main reason was merely to have a free meal on my favorite wantan mee and "pat poh" ice. See, I'm so damn "tam chiak". *Blash*

Ok, back to my objective of visiting this market. Basically I wanted to buy something for my home cooked meal. I need few tomatoes, lettuce and medium size prawns. That's all. But since I was already there, so I tumpang the trip to complete my weekly marketing mission. Of course prawns can be found at almost every seafood stalls. However the condition was not convenient for me to choose the item that I want. Narrow space and fishy smell water splashing everywhere. In the end, I gave up my initial plan and moved to B plan.

We took the risk to move on to the fisherman stalls nearby my place to search for prawns. Well, luck was pretty good. We managed to find medium size prawns on sale. The prawns were freshly caught from the sea. I couldn't believe that 12 prawns just cost me RM2.50!! Oh, this was a wise plan for cost saving!

Then, proceed with the next step - "masak". I had an idea to cook my healthier version of prawn noodle. Of course, since I use organic whole wheat noodle to replace the common yellow noodle that contain Boric acid.




Tada….here's my prawn noodle. Not bad huh??
Mission accomplished!
