This is Sibu's Chu Mee. or cooked noodles with a gravy. Once served in banquets in Sibu restaurants.
There is one type of noodles which was eaten by the Cantonese. During my Grandpa Chan's 71st birthday, Mother served to all of us a small bowl of sweet noddles. It signified long sweet life. I was 14, and didn't like the sweet soup. I went to the kitchen and tipped it into the receptacle for the duck food. Rose saw me and sent daggers from her eyes.
I left for Canada in September 1975. Father had a big farewell party for me. Grandpa Chan came down from Sibu. We had mixed feelings, he was 83. There was unspoken words like, would I see you again. In February 1976, I read that he had died. I remembered that bowl of sweet noodle soup that I had tip out.
These are traditional noodles, for my save the world meme, it is so very important to maintain our tradition.
