Gong Xi Gong Xi

Today is the second day of the Lunar New Year. I have a little time to put down what I've done in the last few days before moving to my CNY visits again.

"Unauthentic" Guang Zhou Fried Rice

I tried cooking this famous fried rice on Tues night. Each grain of rice is supposed to be covered with egg and hence in golden yellow. I did it the unathentic way. Instead of using only egg yolks, I tried to save on the eggs and use the whole egg instead, that was why my rice turned out to be pale yellow instead of golden. What I did was to presoak cooked and completely cooled rice in well beaten eggs, then fry the rice. It was much easier to handle this way, instead of frying the rice first then add in the eggs. I may try using only egg yolks the next round.

Lapis Cake
I've finally succeed in my lapis cake, yes! This was my third attempt. After the many hints from the ladies at KC, I finally manage to get it right! Was really glad I made it in time to give to my mum for CNY.

Reunion Lunch
And finally, these are what I've done for the reunion lunch this year. This is also the first year I'm cooking reunion meals for my parents and Kat's family. I'm glad everyone enjoyed the food. Planning really helps to achieve such a big project...lol...

Foodz, try doing the one on Florence's blog. The cake is nice as most of my relatives commented. Not too oily too.

Happy New Year to you too! :)
