My super snack - Cheap, delicious, exotic and low in fat!

So this is another recipe of a food I've come to love. But I must warn you first, this food is not for the faint-hearted as the main ingredients is.....chicken feet! Also, it is quite spicy!
My boyfriend's mum who taught me how to cook this food calls it "nom khin nam ya" I am not too sure if I spelled it right. It is a dish from Northern Thailand which has Laos influence.
The ingredients are quite cheap as you can buy them at normal Asian markets or Chinese groceries. The absence of oil makes it low in fat. Also, it serves 4-5 people, so it is truly a budget-friendly food! You can't complain, can you?


Japanese-style fine noodles
1 can of light coconut milk
a bag of chicken feet (could be bought frozen from Chinese groceries)
1x pack of fish ball

Flying to the Philippines

I was quite anxious flying back to the Philippines for my AIDF programme. It was my first time flying alone and I'm not too keen on plan...
