Birthday Mee Sua for longevity(生日面线)

Vermicelli, also long as longevity noodles, is used as the main ingredient in this dish of longevity mee suah, prepared for the birthday boys and girls to wish them a long and healthy life. Many Chinese families still cook this dish on birthday occasions in place of a cake, which, in my opinion, is much more practical than a birthday cake as it feeds a person and an entire family well as a meal and isn’t unnecessarily expensive. The tradition stems from the Hokkien dialectal group but is a practice that is commonly seen in many other dialectal groups as well.

Instead of a few nice walks that I had planned in mind for all of us, we have to now stay at home and survive on board games, toys, ball kicking at the corridor and a few doses of Netflix for the next three days (five days SHN in all).
