You wouldn't go far wrong by considering this a Malaysian version of Pad Thai! It was traditionally made for labourers and is now considered one of the national dishes of Malaysia, and very popular in Singapore too. It's important to use a well-seasoned wok, as frying the noodles over a high heat imparts some of the flavour to the dish...
