Crab Meat Noodles

When I first came across this recipe at Rasa Malaysia, I love how it reminded me of Chinese wedding banquets. And for anyone who has attended one, you'll know it's a sit down dinner of at least 2 hours with course after course of Chinese food. I used to complain about how long the meal would take but now that I live in France where pre-dinner drinks start at 7pm & the wedding cake only gets cut at 3am - 2 hours is a breeze.

Her recipe actually calls for imitation shark's fin but since getting that is close to impossible here, I substituted with glass noodles instead. It is absolutely delicious & I've made this many times since. And again last week but X asked "why haven't you been making this more often for me ?" Oops maybe I made this when he wasn't around.
