Still kind of sleepy, need more hibernation (thank you Sesame Street for the word suggestion) moment ZZzzzzz… This is the kind of meal I cook for brunch on Saturday. Quick and easy to cook, no hassle what so ever and could fill up hungry tummy. The most important thing is my little one absolutely loves them so no need to cook another meal. Try this out for your lazy cook day.

A little information about Kwetiau Goreng for those of you who have no clue about them. Kwetiau Goreng is also known as Cha Kwetiau or Fried Rice Noodles. It is a common dish in most Asian household, especially Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean. You definitely could find it in Asian food court and hawker stalls.
