Laksa Johor

It is not a new recipe from me but I decided to upload this entry because I want to share this menu with my friend from United Kingdom, Yra Binan.  She asked for the recipe when 
she saw this photo which I put it in my Facebook.  
Actually, the recipe was in Bahasa Melayu, I'm afraid that she can't understand it.
So this is for you Yra Binan...wink..wink...
