    Uncooked misua noodles. They don't break, which is nice, because they're a symbol for long life. :-)

      Thanks. I wanted it to show the flexibility of these noodles.

      Don't think I can find them here, but I'll give it a try.

      You never know. Look for noodles with a little red string or elastic around them.
      They're a special birthday treat and they're symbolic for long life and good fortune, something really important to Chines people, so your local Asian shop just might have some. If they do, please let me know, I'm curious to find out. :-)

      Good shot. Very interesting! My mother used to cook mee suah for me on my birthday, with pig offal. Yum. Without fail. With a red egg as an accompaniment.

      So you only ate it on your birthday? Or other days too?
      What's a red egg?
