My Not So Successful First New York Cheesecake

I baked a New York Cheesecake few weeks before CNY… a first! Wohoo!

All I can say is it’s very easy to make. My mom’s electric mixer broke down just prior to this so I have to resort using hand for mixing. It’s not bad at all.

I found a few New York Cheesecake recipes like from Joy of Baking, Yochanna’s and Philadelphia Cream Cheese website itself. But at last I follow Cooking For Engineers’ Cheesecake, Plain New York style recipe. I love her step by step recipes. Easy for noob like me ma.

Chinese New Year Cookies: Kuih Kapit aka Love Letter

As you may or may not know, this year sis and I are extremely ‘rajin’ (hardworking). We bake our own Chinese New Year cookies!!! We’ve made 4 in total. Not bad eh?

Well there’s pineapple tarts, oatmeal crispies, margarine cookies and the 4th one which I’m going to share with you is Kuih Kapit aka Love Letter.

It was 3 years ago in 2006 that we last make them. At that time grandma helped us with everything. When I read back my kuih kapit post I was quite lost. At that time things were too messy and I didn’t have time to write a proper recipe.

This time I purposely asked grandma not to come to our house. One is because I know she will definitely help out and we don’t want that. Second is because we want to learn making kuih kapit by ourselves from scratch.

Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant @ SeaPark, PJ

I first discovered this place; Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant because I was sick of eating dim sum. This dim sum restaurant was a few shop away from Khong Kee. I will never go back to the dim sum shop. Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant is ALL I NEED! ๐Ÿ™‚

Khong Kee Yong Tau Fu Restaurant is located at Taman Paramount SeaPark, PJ. It’s just beside Hong Leong Bank and opposite Giant (used to be a cinema).

Their ‘chew pai’ food. Yong Tau Fu of course! The not-so-good photo because I was concentrating on eating. While I find the Yong Tau Fu taste not bad it is the soup that I love very much.

Alien Food

For awhile, I thought my mushroom maggie looks pretty much like what an alien would eat in the alien world. Purplish & slimy. GROSS!
