Look what I found from my stash ~ Classic Asian Noodles
pages 48-49: spicy rice vermicelli fried with herbs 
 cooking oil for frying
chopped garlic
fish cake, sliced into stripes
prawns, peeled
light soy sauce
bean sprouts
dried fine-medium rice vermicelli, softened in cold water
salt, water (I used fish bone stock)
Fresh herbs mix (coriander leaves,spring onions,
chinese celery, tumeric leaves (forgot about this)
basil and/or mint (I used only mint)
spice paste of: fresh red chilies,
shallots, garlic cloves and water - blended.
I love the after-taste of the mint.  A delightful dish

  2. Hi Em,
    Wow, I know that I would love this bee hoon meal! Fried bee hoon is my favourite and with all the herbs extra fragrant and tasty!
