Will be MIA!

I won't be around for a month or so. Flying back to Malaysia on Monday and will stay for roughly a month. Can't wait to eat all the yummy food and kuih. :) Just hope that I won't gain too much weight and would be able to lose it after I got back. :P

It would be great to let the grandparents see Evy for the first time too. I could tell they are getting excited. It has been six years since I last went back, heard that a lot have changed, can't wait to meet my parents and siblings as well.

Kuih Bunga/ Kuih Rose/ Honeycomb Cookies

This was the kuih bunga I made for this year CNY. I used Jo's crispy honeycomb recipe from I didn't get to eat much since my husband basically finished all that I had save for ourselves. I brought more than half to a friend's CNY potluck. My husband just ate it like a snack. Next time I would have to double the recipe.

This was the kuih bangkit I made for Chinese New Year. I used Hugbear's recipe from It was the best kuih bangkit I had ever made and definitely a keeper recipe. The kuih bangkit was crispy when you bite into it and then simply melt in your mouth all at once. Sooo good!

Pineapple Tarts

This is my favorite Pineapple Tarts recipe. I first adapted Amy Beh's recipe but was not satisfied with the result because I wanted a melt in the mouth tart.  So, I played with the recipe couple of times until I got the end result that I was looking for.  The recipe below was the result of my experiments and is the recipe that I used every year since then. The pastry was soft and has the melt in your mouth taste to it.
