Chee Cheong Fun II

I think i have opened Pandora Box on Borax. I too am afraid to use it and like how the malaysians will say - What to do? When you have the urge to eat a plate, I will cook some dried Vietnamese Rice Stick Hu Tieu and eat with sweet sauce. It is almost like the real fresh thing except that the size of the Hu Tieu is so much thinner. And again another saying in hokkien ' Bo Hu Hae Too Ho'

Is Borax powder dangerous for consumption?

Thanks Lily for all the wonderful recipe! I am Msian just starting work in CHicago and I live w an American room mate who wants to see my "skills" in the kitchen. She cooks me yummy Mexican food but I can't really make her suffer through my mediocre preparation. My mum recommended your site (she found it a few weeks ago and has been rigorous practising! She loooooves your easy-to-follow recipe and can't stop churning out yummy food! I wish I was home..).

Thanks Auntie Lily!

cool! I am a Malaysian too and living in Chicago. I've been craving for chee cheong fun especially the one with the mushroom sauce too. I am originally from Ipoh so it's been awhile since I had chee cheong fun. I am totally going to try making this.

Oh, your chee cheong fun looked horrible. Don't spoil the name of our soft, smooth and tasty chee cheong fun PLEASE.

this chee cheong fun might looked horrible but no matter how horrible looking it was, it did satisfy the craving for chee cheong fun and it was better than eating a plate of mushy, too soft chee cheong fun
