Mom’s Birthday Noodles ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

It is 5:10 in the morning and there is clinking and clanking in the kitchen.

Today is Mom’s 60th birthday and noodles are in order.

And then prepare the toppings:

(Chinese name sounding like Chinese lucky word… that sort of thing…)


IMG_5772Chasiu slices, shrimps, scallops and eggs


IMG_5776Mushrooms and little flowery things in secret soup stock


IMG_5781Chinese cabbage, green onions, crispy shallots, fresh garlic


IMG_5798Add drained noodles and pile on the toppings


On her very own birthday, at 5:10am, with sweat trickling down her neck,
Mom prepares noodles for each and every one of us.


And that is why to me she will always be The Greatest Mom in the World. ♥
