Cut thin strands of bamboo shoots into 2" lengths. Cut soaked bean thread noodles into 3" pieces. Wash and blanch bean sprouts, celery and pepper. Slice celery, pepper, carrots, turnip and cabbage into 2" long pencil-size pieces. Halve baby corn on the bias. Slice pressed bean curd same size as vegetables. Deep-fry in shallow oil until slightly tan but still pliable. Drain. Mash fermented bean curd, then blend with sugar, dark soy, sherry and water. Stir-frying: Heat wok until medium-hot. Add 4 tablespoons of deep-frying oil. Add all dry ingredients, except noodles; stir-fry 1 minute. Turn wok to high. Add fresh and canned ingredients, and stir-fry for 2 more minutes: sprinkle in salt after first minute. Add liquid mixture, mixing with juices in pan. Add noodles. Reduce heat to medium, cover wok, and steam for 5 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked but still firm. Uncover, sprinkle in MSG and sesame oil. Toss briefly. Serve in a warm bowl.
