Pineapple Jam Spring Roll

February 24, 2010

I had a lot of pineapple jam leftover from making my pineapple tarts. It will be a waste to throw them away since I spent a lot of energy making the pineapple jam. Since I also had spring roll skin leftover from making the mini crispy spring roll, I decided to combine the two. Rolling […]

February 10, 2010

Continuing on my Chinese New Year baking streak, I made bak kua this year. I was so tempted to bring it back to the States during my visit to Malaysia last month but decided against it at the last minute. So I decided to make my own when I got back. The last time I […]

I am on a Chinese New Year baking mood now, so for the past few days, I have been busy in the kitchen. Among all my bakes, I would have to say that this one was the hardest and took the longest time – the Pineapple Tart. The pineapple jam was the most tedious part […]

Fried Popiah (Spring Roll) & Popiah (Spring Roll) Skin

September 15, 2009

When I was little, everytime there was a major festival, we would make popiah for lunch. However instead of raving over the yummy filling, my favorite part of the popiah lunch was actually the popiah skin. Strange, eh? I think it was because we bought the popiah skin fresh off the stove. In the morning […]

She calls it colorful ice because the first one she ate was really colorful with at least 5 different colors of syrup. Since then, she has been asking for her colorful ice. They do serve this at the local Malaysian restaurant but […]
