Economy Noodle & 'Mua Chee'

I like economy noodle, especially economy bee hoon. Though, it is only a simple meal, but I like it. The other day, I had it for dinner. But found that now the economy noodle is no longer that economy anymore. We have to order the 'big' one because the normal one, the portion is so small, I m not sure which part of the stomach it will actually filled up. There is this stall selling economy noodle at Taman Sri Nibong in the evening till night. I like the one there and I remember I had to actually wait for more than half an hour once (coz so many people) to get 2 packets of economy bee hoon :).

Bee Hoon
Koay Teow
Bee Hoon + Instant Noodle

For dessert, we have Mua Chee. For those who may not know what mua chee is, it is made of steamed glutinous rice flour and then mix with nuts and sugar.

Well, the 'big' economy noodle cost us RM1.40 each but still the portion is normal only. Things are so expensive nowadays. With the price hike especially in food, sometimes I really wonder how the lower income family really survive. It must be tough for them...........
