My hubby went for a meeting at Kuching today and at first place, he told me that he's going back this late evening. Alas, he didn't make it because the meeting ends at 4.30pm and the last flight from Kuching to Miri without any stop departs at 4.30pm. So, he had to spend the night at Pullman Hotel, Kuching. I've made Mee Jawa with neck bone because he loves to eat it but he's not here to enjoy it. Luckily, my kids loves the Mee Jawa minus the neck bone. I should have garnish the Mee Jawa with coriander leaves, sliced chili and fried onions but I don't have any of them in stock. Anyway, enjoy.
