Handmade Noodle Topped with Soybean Paste Chicken

When I shot this picture, I had to work fast, really fast. One reason was that I was so hungry and the other reason was it was much tasty to eat hot noodle. If I waited longer and all the noodle would have become sticky together, then all the efforts to make the noodle would go wasted.

My mother made the noodle, and she is a big believer that everything is tastier if made by hand. But I think she is just enjoying the process as much as eating them.
