My Easy Pad Thai

I just felt like having Pad Thai today. 

Not having the Thai ingredients at home, I decided to cook my own style of Pad Thai. How about Korean glass noodles? Positive. It was easy to prepare and the noodles were soft and chewy.

Hong Kong Snack: Shark's Fin in a Bowl

Shark's Fin in a Bowl (碗仔翅) was one of my favorite afternoon or late-night snacks when I was in secondary school. To be exact, I loved to have Shark's Fin & Fish Paste in a Bowl (魚肉翅). People used glass noodles (粉絲) as the fake shark's fin, but more and more restaurants are using imitation shark's fin instead. 

The imitation shark's fin was on sale. That was why I bought it and made the soup today.
