Stir-fried Hokkien Mee 福建面

    My mother used to cook this or something like this when I was a kid. She always said she cook it 'anyhow'. ;) My mother never really do much cooking. She came from a big family and according to her, she was assigned the duty of washing clothes for the family. Hence, she knows nuts about cooking. So, this explains why I started picking up cooking only after my elder son turned almost 3.:P I never get to learn how to cook this from her in the end, because each time she cooked, it looked and tasted a bit different (due to the ingredients she used) and she would said just 'anyhow' cook if I asked. LOL Years later when I started working, I realised that what my mother did could be the local zichar's Hokkien Mee.:D This, here you see, is my replica of the zichar's Hokkien Mee (without using lard) though. Not my mum's version. XD

    djust the 'darkness' of the sauce by adjusting the amount of Dark Soy Sauce. Usually a premium Dark Soy Sauce is thicker and darker. The amount of Oyster Sauce and Light Soy Sauce used to season the noodles also depends on if you are using water or chicken broth. Please adjust according to your taste.
