Hah Rid,
Don't we have the same taste of food. My curry laksa recipe and here's your lodeh. I think you know me well. How can I say no to Asian spicy dishes. Nice pics and everything came together perfectly.

You know I love these coconut based soups. :) I have always seen chayote squash in the Asian market and never tried it. Now it's a must try. :)

Have a wonderful weekend. :)
