First Chinese New Year Dinner at Home

We are home! First Chinese New Year dinner at home. Hungry ah...still wanna snap photo ah.

Came home on the second day. Drop by Aunty CC's place and guess these lovely Fish Karipap/puff.

It's the best in the world. She gave us a big pack but it  was so yummy that only 3 pieces reached K.L.

Papa and Mamarazzi made a stop at Temerloh to have early dinner and bought "Jumping Fish" for me. It's actually Patin Fish but I call it Jumping Fish coz the first time I saw this fish , it jumps a lot.

Yesterday Mamarazzi  cooked the fish for me. She steamed it with some vegetables  and added Tanghoon on top. Yummy! i love it.

Aiyo...must really ban Mamarazzi from Facebook  liao. She saw one of  the sponsor site advertised this dish . There she goes again. Experiment .  I didn't eat but she ate. Not bad wor she said.

However, I did have the "burnt" wonton. Nice..until i bite on the dried oyster. Aiyoyo...why she put dried oyster leh. Am same as Uncle SK. we don't like dried oyster.

This sea cucumber with broccoli and mixed vegetables dish is supposed for me and Papa as it have our favourite vege but my taste changed again. Papa finished most of it.

Last but not least baby cabbage soup with minced meat.

Eat liao full full can continue play tablet sleep liao. last day of CNY school holiday .  Tomorrow start  classes again loh.

Xin Nian Kuai Le/Happy New Year

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. Early morning I went with Papa to the temple to offer food to our ancestors .

See! Mamarazzi got me this lovely Tee. Gong Hey Fatt Choy which means abundance of wealth  to you. 

May you have plenty of "pomelo". In Cantonese , pomelo is known as "luk yau" which sound like "lor yau" (have abundance ). May you have abundance of everything .

Till we meet again...Ciao!

Mamarazzi's Daily Projects

This year Mamarazzi made quite a few Nian Gao but all not nice. Only 4 survived.

But am the happiest when her Nian Gao burst. I get to eat it while it's soft and goey. super  yummy .

As she was getting frustrated with the nian gao making, she used the extra banana leaves to make this instead.

It's  called Banh Tet. Vietnamese  Zhang . They make it for  their new year i heard.

Heard it needs 8 to 10 hours of cooking but Mamarazzi used pressure cooker. Cooked in 3 hours.

After that project, it was followed by honeycomb  biscuit. Tough "cookies" to make. Hard to  get the texture and color right. And it's  even harder get the oil out.

When Mamarazzi  asked me if i want to try this,  i told her i rather not as it's  too oily.

Managed to get cheap Chinese Arrowhead Root . Fried another 10kg for friends and family.

That evening, Mamarazzi spotted an advertisement in Facebook about Cornflakes cookies.

The next morning while i attended Funland ( yup i still go to Funland and listen to story about Jesus), Mamarazzi zoomed o the nearest bakery supplies shop and bought the ingredients .  

Very easy to  make. I helped Mamarazzi to arrange the cups in the tray and make sure they don't fly away as the fan was on . Need to put the cornflakes, nuts, seeds and berries mixture into the cups fast before it harden.

The second project of that day was Chicky
The 1st batch the other day was just enough to give to friends and supposed for my teachers. 

Mamarazzi gave me 4 boxes for 4 of my teachers. Asked me once reached the school immediately  go to Teachers Room and give out .

But....i went to my class instead...after a ding and a dong...some how...i dunno why and i dunno how..Mamarazzi's instructions  seems to have gone with the wind....i end up selling 2 boxes to my friends. 

Came home i dare not tell Mamarazzi until she questioned me and found out. Kaboom!

Hence the need to make some  more for my teachers.

Making the chicky was a joy . Then Mamarazzi heard Papa asking about Kok Chai. 

Google...found the recipe. seems pretty easy. Just mix the grounded peanuts, sesame seeds and sugar. Then stuff them into the pastry.

Woke up 6am to  make it. Thought 1-2 hours will be done. That 1-2 hours went on till 1pm...which made me nearly late for my school activities.

She made two types. The sweet peanuts filling and the spicy dried sambal shrimps. 

Not easy..not easy...whole day only managed to make 3 tiny tubs.

Luckily Papa helped her to fry.

This morning  while I was in school , she used the leftover sambal to make this sambal popiah

Then finally the meat floss popiah.

Papa was in charge of the frying department .  Managed to get 1 tub of these. Hopefully can last till Chinese New Year  lah.

Kitchen officially closed now.

Happy New Year - Frying, Baking and Steaming Momster is Back

Hello again! i am back...for dunno how long . Am now in morning class . Gotta wake up super early daily to go to school.

Mamarazzi still blur blur daily coz not enough snooze.

Very long time have not been posting as she was lazy ...lazy to blog that is. Instead, she have been busy experimenting in the kitchen.

She saw people posting up home baked "bak Kua"(dried meat) , she also keen to experiment .  Bak Kua nowadays  very expensive. RM60 to Rm80 per 600gm depending  where you buy.

She made some. Low sugar as Papa can't take much of sugar. Texture was nice but taste wise not so good. Probably  coz she reduced the amount of the sugar. wonder price of bak kua so expensive. Bought RM10 minced meat, can get about 9pieces of the bak kua only.

Opps...she was busy chatting online with friend. Hence the bak kua got burnt a bit. Still edible.

Finished with that project, Papa and Mamarazzi went and bought 20kg of Arrow Heads.

Mamarazzi turned into frying monster last weekend fried all 20kg of arrow head chips.

I helped. I helped to eat. Papa too.

Nah...i got help to sell la. But my classmate asked me to give for free pulak.

Wei wei easy to fry leh. Mamarazzi stood infront of the hot wok from morning to midnight leh...can't  feel her feet already leh. I helped massaged her feet and put warm socks for her.

Glad to announce...all 20kg fully sold off...minus a few kg eaten by  Papa and me.

Since am so good to her, Mamarazzi made a surprise  for me. Yup...she made Nian Gao (Chinese  New Year sticky cake) for me. I love Nian Gao coz its so sweet.

While steaming Nian Gao for me , she saw friends posted up about making German Cookies.

Her friend made Chicken shaped german cookies coz this year is the  year of  the Rooster according  to the Chinese Calender.

She made 2 shapes. Which one do you like the most? Left or right?

Well...that's  all for now. Thanks for dropping by.
