Stir-fry Tangy Macaroni

Kids love macaroni, doesn't they? Maybe of its cute shape and 'easy' to eat? The common way of preparing macaroni dish would be the usual macaroni chicken soup. This is the first time I'm trying out this stir-frying method :D Oooh it tasted so good! Lots of ingredients added like prawn, squid, minced meat, fish cake and mixed vegetables. Along with the slight spicy and tangy sauce, it tasted very appetising that you will tempted to reach out for another serving...and of course it is also very easy to 'eat', just scoop it up with a spoon!
