Looks so tasty!! Wish I was one of the eaters at your place, hahaha ...!

Your boys and hubby are so blessed to have you, Sonia! Btw, we tried your bak kut teh mix and absolutely love it!!! We'd like to know where we can get it though. Actually, my mom used one of the 2 packets. I can't cook on weekdays to my 8-hour workdays. However, I'm so gonna use up the last one on one of these weekends. It'd be great if we can get a hold of it as we're gonna exhaust the last one packet.

Thanks in advance!
