Indonesian Style Kangkong Noodles (Mi Kangkung)

I'm not sure what is kangkong in English, I googled and some said water spinach, some said swamp cabbage, details can be read HERE

I do not cook this vegetable too often, not that I don't like, but not many dishes using this ingredients, not that I know of
But for this typical noodles loved by many Indonesians, it has to use kangkong, no other vegetable, otherwise the name wouldn't be kangkong noodles LOL

Recipe is from an Indonesian magazine long time ago which the recipe page I torn and kept with me
