tuen ng rice dumplings

July 27th, 2016

after the spaghetti, we learned to make the tuen ng rice dumplings!  it was great to learn the proper way of wrapping though none of us was fond of all the beans inside the glutinous rice…




we had a lot of fun doing this and will definitely apply the method to wrapping our own dumplings on the next tuen ng festival.

her birthday cake

July 25th, 2016

we had a small playdate/ gathering at home right after my bvi trip to celebrate siu momo’s 9 year old birthday in advance (her real birthday coming up this sunday), as all her best friends at school were going away after school ended.  with reference to the design, siu momo helped me make and decorate her cake…


the harry potter theme cake was swiss meringue cream over chiffon cakes, as usual.  we had a great time sharing the fun and joy that day!
