My early Christmas gift from Malaysia


I was ecstatic when I saw my cousin Ann on Monday. Of course happy to see her, after all haven't seen her for 2 years. Secondly, she brought with her 2 new Malaysian cooking utensils which her mum gave them to me as a gift. So authentic, how would I not be happy. Thanks to my aunt Madeline and of course Ann having traveled with them in Europe[quoted: she complained that's heavy in her big backpack...well, well]. To repay her for her effort, I cooked her decent meal. After all it's reunion of two cousins and great friends.

The first utensil non other than Roti Jala (net bread) mould. Hmnn....I'm excited to make roti jala soon.






The second utensil is pai tee mould ( top hats) used by the nyonyas. Nyonyas are Chinese who have adopted Malay customs in an effort to assimilate into local communities. Been ages since I last tried them....I miss eating them. I know soon enough I'm going to make them. Stay tune of course.....

Why are you wearing scarfs in the house? Is it cold?

Ann said...

Yes. It's freezing in Christine's house.

Or was it fashion statement? :-)

Whah...all the way round the world...As for the scarfs, that's what you get when two vain pots get together.
