Food for Thought 2 : Simple Yet Special Dish for My Birthday

My dearest mother cooked for me a simple yet special dish for me on my lunar birthday.
Traditionally, Chinese will celebrate one’s lunar birthday with a bowl of noodles cooked in broth called 'mian xian'. The supposedly long noodles symbolise longevity and Chinese will add a pair of hard-boiled eggs for good luck. I ate the noodles with my heart filled with gratitudes towards my dearest mother who has been taking care of me be the days are full of rain or sunshine. Thank you mother and I love you^^
