Review: Hae Mee (Prawn noodle)

I think I don't eat prawn noodle soup often enough. Maybe because it goes hand in hand with pork, just like ramen, it was never a dish that was top of mind.

Once in a while though, like yesterday, I would order it quite randomly.  And enjoy it.

Found in the coffeeshop just across my home, the bowl of prawn noodles (not with the traditional yellow noodle, but with kway teow, just the way I like it) reminded me delicious food can be simple, and inexpensive.

Rich stock, fresh prawns (all five of them), crunchy kang kong and bean sprouts, generous slices of fish cake, smooth and slippery rice noodles and no pork. All for S$ 3. Perfect combination; I would not ask for more.

While you are there, try the beef noodle stall if you like this dish (Cheng Kee Beef Kway Teow); apparently quite famous and I saw a long queue. 

I believe both noodle stalls open only for lunch.  For dinner, the fish steamboat / tze char stall would be the principal crowd drawer, with the rojak and western food stalls getting a bit of peripheral business.
I love my neighbourhood !

this is my neighbourhood and my favourite hawker centre! I'll try this because I love prawn mee :) the crazy long queue for the 'black bowl' laksa/bak chor mee is quite good too!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
