Mom's Assam Laksa

Going back to our hometown is always such a treat. Hubby-to-be's mom is an excellent cook, and her home-cooked meals always make the 4-hour journey worth the while.
This trip, we were greeted with an assam laksa lunch upon arrival, and boy, did I go overboard with piling on the ingredients.


Lots and lots of kembong fish (from the newly opened Tesco! my happy place, yay!) in the gravy! We love mom's assam laksa!

just re-looked at the pictures and realise that there is no bunga kantan. must have this for fragrance. so hard to get downunda.

ps mouse recovered. miracle.
