Homemade Curry Rice Noodles

I really miss Malaysia's spicy and delicious curry noodles soup..It's not only I missed curry noodles,Mishu also love this type of noodles very much.When I mentioned to her that her mommy is going to make some curry noodles soup,she was very happy!! Of course, I make everything from scratch.I bought few packets of extra spicy Baba's curry powder from Malaysia.Beside Baba's curry powder,my mom also bought 2 kilos of dried chili pepper,some candle nuts,some dried shrimp and many more local ingredients for me..I was so happy that I managed to get all the ingredients that I wanted but too bad my luggage was overweight big time!! At KLIA ,I had to removed almost 20 kg before they let my luggage check-in.If not they're going to fine me USD 100 per KILO!! yeah..that true!! My trouble with luggage problem won't stop at KLIA but continue after I arrived at JFK..The airline managed to lost one of my luggage in between transit!! OK..I better stop ranting my story here..If I keep continue the story with my luggage it's will take the whole page or whole day!! haha! Let's go back to my curry noodles:)

Yes!! US custom will blacklist me if they found I bring in live plants or many many more food times that are not allowed...that why I was so afraid and nervous when one of my luggage was MIA..I know when they found the luggage they will open and verify the items with me ..But I was lucky ,the one was MIA don't have banned food,only Mishu's shoes and PJ's..YEssss!!! when the airport officer called me,they DID verify each item with me...thank god,,they didn't find anything that id forbidden!!
