How to Cut

Met a chef with mad julienning skills. And then I found this, which I find to be useful, in a ticklish way. Check out the animation on this page. Now I need a sharp knife in time for the yu sheng season. Or I could use my mother’s mandolin.

We bought some crockery for a shoot last week. And I’m thinking or hoping (don’t ask me why) that one day I’ll have a collection like this.

My mom made closed pineapple tarts and some kueh bangkit this year (not from that recipe), but we’re gonna tweak the recipe some more. The big question is when I’ll get round to it.

In the meantime, here’s a very nice link on Peranakan recipes from Amy. And this one looks good as well. I have to say though, that even though the recipe needs tweaking, we finished a whole load of it in the past few days.

The other thing is that I’ve almost completed my Vogue 7521 dress. It looks nothing like the illustrations and is completely unwearable outside the house, flashing the itty bitties whenever I move. Hookers and breastfeeding mothers could wear it outside, I guess. Maybe with some alterations, I could wear it.

On a brighter note, my Alannah Hill skirt went quite well. Will post pictures later.
