Making Hand-pulled Mee Sua in <b>Sarikei</b> | House of Annie

Posted: 26 Jun 2012 01:31 AM PDT

Raising the curtain on what was in that mystery box that we brought back from Sarikei

Lifting the curtain of mee sua

Mee Sua: Foochow Long Life Noodles

semi dried mee sua

One of our commenters, Melissa, guessed correctly that it was mee sua inside the mystery box. Mee sua (also spelled mee suah or misua) is a dried wheat flour noodle, thinner than angel hair pasta. Also known as "long life noodle", it is a favorite among the Chinese from the Foochow / Fuzhou community who serve it as a must-eat food at Chinese New Year, on birthdays, and other special occasions.

Most mee sua is made in factories nowadays. But some places with large Foochow populations like Sarikei and Sibu in Sarawak, and Sitiawan in Perak, Peninsular Malaysia still have people keeping the tradition of hand-pulling these noodles.  I once saw an episode of "Taste with Jason" on the Asian Food Channel where he visits one such person making mee sua by hand in Klang. It made me want to visit a hand-pulled mee sua maker and see it for myself.

We had been getting mee sua from Sarikei through our friend who came from there and often receives care packages sent from her hometown.  When the opportunity came for us to journey to Sarikei with them, I asked if they could arrange for us to go see the mee sua maker there. She said she'd call and try to make the arrangements.

Hanging out in Sarikei Town

The second day we were in Sarikei, it was raining and they weren't making any noodles that day. But on the third day, they said we could come over. So we hopped in our cars and off we went.

Soon we found ourselves pulling up to an end terrace house, where the drying frames for the noodles were set up in the front and side yards facing Jalan Century. I was rather surprised that this place was located just a few minutes' drive from our lodging, and only a block away from the Kim Hing Bakery on Jalan Hua Tai 1. I had imagined that the house would be farther out from town for some reason.

We alighted, and the mee sua maker, Mr. Lau, invited us inside his modest home. The home smelled sweetly of dough. In the cool back kitchen, he showed us a long, wooden box, filled with ropes of dough hanging suspended between two wooden dowels. Each pair of dowels had about 1 to 1.5 kg of dough wrapped around them. He explained that the dough had to be pre-stretched like this until the lower dowel reached the bottom of the box (I'd estimate slightly less than a meter deep).

Hand Pulling Mee Sua

Mr. Lau's noodles weren't ready to be hung just yet, but his relatives across the street were already out pulling their mee sua in the sun. He brought us over to their yard to witness them pulling the noodles. Long, wooden frames were set out in the stony yard, each beam dotted with holes spaced out at regular intervals.  The dowels are inserted into the holes, and the noodles are stretched between the dowels like wispy streamers.

Mee Sua Stretching

Everywhere you looked, lines and lines of white mee sua noodles were draped, hanging in the bright sunlight.  I couldn't have been more happy at this point, as I immediately went to work snapping picture after picture. It was a foodie photographer's dream!

The man showed us how the hanging and stretching was done. First, he brought out five dowels' worth of dough ropes and hitched them up into the upper beam. Once they were secured, he carefully gathered the bottom dowels in his fingers and slowly drew the noodles toward him.

Setting up the Mee Sua for Pulling

He took a few steps backward, raising the dowels over his head. Then with a great heave, he whipped his arms forward and down, creating a wave that traveled up the strings back to the end with a snap. The noodles magically lengthened!

Snapping and Pulling the Mee Sua

He took a couple of steps forward, then repeated the steps, pulling back further each time. When he got near the end, he secured the dowels into the beam. Then, his partner came to manually separate each "sheet" of noodles, to keep the mee sua from tangling and sticking to each other. He continued to snap and stretch more noodles.

I didn't measure, but I would say the noodles were stretched out to between 3-4 meters long. They would leave the mee sua to dry on the racks, and then wind the semi-dry noodles into small bundles to dry some more (see second picture above). At the end of the day, the bundles would be gathered and packaged for sale.

Mee Sua Making Isn't Easy

This method of hand-pulling mee sua isn't easy, of course. It starts with watching the weather reports to see if it's going to rain the next day. If it rains, no mee sua.

In order to maximize the time in the sun, the dough has to be started very early in the morning. Like, 2 or 3 AM. The dough is kneaded by hand, rolled into ropes by hand, and wound around the dowels by hand.

Then of course comes the pulling. I didn't actually get to try my own hand at pulling, but I can imagine that doing this work, in the hot sun for hours on end wouldn't be pleasant for a wimp like me who's accustomed to air-conditioned office work. You have to have a passion for it.

It Takes Skill

The sun was finally peeking over into Mr. Lau's side yard, so he had begun hanging and pulling his own noodles there. As I watched, I could not help but notice his skill at mee sua pulling. He had an extra snap in his wrists, and an extra lean in his pull. It's almost as if he was doing tai chi.

Here's a video I took of them both. Can you see the difference in pulling styles?

Fading Out

Mee Sua making is only a part-time business for Mr. Lau, as he has a weekday job as a civil servant. He only makes noodles on weekends and public holidays, weather permitting. He always has orders for mee sua, and he always sells out.

Since he hadn't made any noodles the previous day due to the rain, we couldn't take any home with us that day. But we did manage to pick up a couple of kg of mee sua to take home with us the next day. At 15 ringgit per kg, that's quite a high price for pasta.

But when you consider the amount of labor, skill, and love that went into the mee sua, and when you can taste the very clear difference in quality between factory-made and hand-made, then you'd say it was worth every penny.

I am extremely grateful to our hosts for arranging this visit, and to Mr. Lau for letting us inconvenience them while they worked. I lament that this tradition and craft of hand pulling mee sua could die out with Mr. Lau's generation, if his children decide not to carry it on. It would be really sad to see this art fade out of existence.

lost among the mee sua

I look forward to using this mee sua in the coming months, perhaps to make fried mee sua like we had at New Fortune Restaurant, but definitely to make some Foochow Red Wine Mee Sua with Chicken which we will blog about soon.

Aloha, Nate

Perutusan Y.A.B. Perdana Menteri Malaysia Sempena Peristiwa <b>...</b>

Posted: 23 Jun 2012 02:34 PM PDT

Posted in Blog on Date June 17th, 2012 by Najib Razak | CommentsView Comments

Alhamdulillah, sekali lagi kita diberi kesempatan untuk bertemu bulan Rejab, dengan harapan akan disusuli dengan Syaaban seterusnya menikmati kemuliaan beribadah di bulan Ramadhan. Sesungguhnya, 27 Rejab secara tradisinya membawa ingatan kita kepada satu peristiwa agung yang tiada taranya, iaitu Peristiwa Israk dan Mikraj. Biarpun kisah ini berlaku melebihi 1400 tahun yang lalu, tetapi kerelevanan dan kepentingannya adalah amat signifikan buat umat Islam.

Sememangnya, ini adalah sesuai dengan apa yang terkandung dalam kitab suci Al-Quran apabila Allah SWT memaktubkan peristiwa agung Israk melalui firman-Nya dalam surah al-Israa^ ayat pertama yang bermaksud:-

"Maha Suci Allah yang telah menjalankan hambaNya (Muhammad) pada malam hari dari Masjidilharam (di Mekah) ke Masjid Al-Aqsa (di Palestin), yang Kami berkati sekelilingnya, untuk memperlihatkan kepadanya tanda-tanda (kekuasaan dan kebesaran) Kami. Sesungguhnya Allah jualah Yang Maha Mendengar, lagi Maha Mengetahui."

  • Salam Sejahtera Dan Salam 1MALAYSIA DATUK SERI,   

       Sebagai seorang wakil kepada penduduk di Pekan Marudi Baram, Sarawak ini saya ingin mengucapkan sekali lagi jutaan terima kasih kepada pemimpin nombor satu kita iaitu DATUK SERI MOHD. NAJIB RAZAK kerana telah sudi datang membuat tinjauan mesra dan beramah mesra dengan penduduk di pekan Marudi ini.

       Kami penduduk di pekan Marudi berasa amat terharu dan gembira teramat sangat setelah DATUK SERI dan juga kerajaan 1malaysia di bawah pimpinanbeliau mengumumkan kelulusan peruntukan untuk membina jalanraya darat 1MALAYSIA yang menghubungkan Daerah Pekan Marudi Baram ke Miri Sarawak yang sekian lamanya dinanti-nantikan oleh rakyat penduduk di sini.
       Buat masa sekarang jalanraya tersebut masih dalam proses pembinaan, syukurrrr… alhamdullilahhhh…., TAPI kami rakyat di Pekan Marudi Baram ini ada satu permintaan buat DATUK SERI iaitu sekiranya DATUK SERI sudi datang sekali lagi ke Pekan Marudi ini untuk membuat tinjauan keatas projek jalanraya 1MALAYSIA DATUK SERI yang menghubungkanPekan Marudi ke Miri sebelum pilihanraya umum yng ke-13 ini. Kami penduduk di sini juga mengalu-alukan kehadiran dan kedatangan DATUK SERI untuk menyempurna dan merasmikan projek JALANRAYA 1MALAYSIA  tersebut.
    Jutaan Terima Kasih kami ucapkan kepada DATUK SERI dan KERAJAAN 1MALAYSIA….. Syabas!!!…..
    Sekian, Terima Kasih

  • Assalamualaikum w.w..

    Terlebih dahulu saya dan keluarga saya mengucapkan tahniah di atas kepimpinan Datuk Seri yang telah banyak memberikan peluang dan kemudahan kepada rakyat Malaysia dari pelbagai sudut.

    Saya merupakan salah seorang rakyat yang telah menikmati kemakmuran negara dengan mengalami sendiri peluang-peluang yang telah disediakan. Pada tahun 2009 dan 2010 yang lalu, saya telah dilantik sebagai guru kontrak dan hasil pendapatan tersebut, saya dapat membiayai keluarga saya. Ribuan Terima kasih di atas peluang tersebut.

    Pada tahun ini, sekali lagi saya berterima kasih kerana telah diberi peluang untuk menjalani latihan perguruan di salah sebuah IPG Malaysia memandangkan kerjaan telah membuka satu lagi peluang iaitu Program Penyerapan Guru GSTT. Namun saya agak terkejut dan kecewa apabila tawaran tersebut hanya sementara kerana saya hanya bekas guru kontrak di mana syarat lantikan tersebut memerlukan pengalaman sebagai guru GSTT.

    Untuk pengetahuan Datuk Seri, kemasukan saya ke IPG tersebut setelah melalui prosedur yang telah ditetapkan yakni saya telah mengemukakan surat rayuan, menghadiri sesi semakan dokumen dan temuduga singkat yang telah dijalankan oleh pihak KPM, namun kini saya terpaksa menamatkan pengajian dan menanggung kerugian dari segi pekerjaan asal yang telah saya lepaskan, wang ringgit, masa, tenaga dan kini emosi saya serta keluarga saya juga agak terganggu kerana penarikan semula latihan perguruan saya.

    Saya dan keluarga saya merayu kepada Datuk Seri untuk mempertimbangkan dan mengkaji semula perkara ini agar saya dapat melanjutkan pengajian memandangkan saya telah menamatkan satu semester sebelum pembatalan tersebut. Pengalaman kerja dan pengajian sebagai guru yang saya telah lalui memberikan saya pengalaman yang hebat dan rugi rasanya sekiranya saya tidak dapat meneruskan kerjaya tersebut lebih-lebih lagi bidang yang diberikan kepada saya adalah Pendidikan Pemulihan Khas.

    Segala keprihatinan Datuk Seri amatlah saya harapkan dan saya dahului dengan ucpan ribuan terima kasih.
