Noodle, Noodle, Singapore Noodle

Today's lunch was a bit late - partly because I was finishing up a formatting of my algorithms in PDF forms. I had wonton and noodle soup together with char siew. Here in Singapore, noodle are so tiny - smaller than those you usually found in cheap instant noodle pack. A large yellow noodle made from floor is rarely a default in many outlet. However, if you ask for it, you can have it.

Last night, I was talking with my land-lady. I was asking why Hokkien Mee (Hokkien Noodle) has three different kinds of noodles (white rice, flat and yellow) together. She explained (I don't know the reliability of this source though) me that Singaporeans don't like the taste of yellow noodle (that also explain why the small noodle is default) so they had to mix it. It is true that the taste is good even for my taste buds.

When I nearly finished my meal, I saw the guy from Muslin outlet plugged his big big rice-cooker into an outlet in common area. To the best of my knowledge, no stall cooks in common area but in their confined space. I believe each stall has a seperate meter box. The outlets in common area is for students' use (laptop etc) and paid by the university. In this sense, it is some kind of stealing. Geez
