Today we celebrated Ah Mah's 91st Birthday and it is another big makan feast at home. Last year we get a caterer to do the catering at home. But this year we suggested the same arrangement again but again there are few aunties 'ah chi ah chor' complainting foods is not good, caterer is expensive, bla, bla, bla...... End up Dad suggested every family pool RM100 and he will make arrangement to prepare the foods. My Dad is a good cook and trying to be SUPERHERO hence he cook some and some he get my aunt to buy. Walaueh.... end up I think too much food. Few of my cousin sis, bring some food also end up 2 person bring the same food. (** shake head** )
Sis called me up yesterday and telling me no one is preparing dessert and she asked me to make some back. Searching around what to make and end up I make 'Seri Muka' after my 1st attempt to make 'Kuih Jagung' failed yesterday night. This morning woke up early and started making the 'Kuih Seri Muka' and get the recipe from the here.
Don't know why the top layer is not smooth. Can someone please tell me why? Those selling in pasar malam, why the top surface is so smooth and nice and so, so, so even.
Also makes some Butter Cupcakes yesterday night and did the frosting with buttercream icing this afternoon.
I am too busy chit chatting with fellow cousin sis and haven't see them for a long time since CNY. So kepoh around here and there with them and totally forgot to snap the food shots. Dad cook fried chicken, fried wantan, fried prawns, yong tau foo, stewed mushroom, sambal sotong, and he ordered from his friend pork ribs curry, fried longevity noodles and also steamed glutinious rice. He get Aunty AC to order 4 roasted duck and also some siew yoke. Mom ordered currypuff from her Malay neighbour and Sis make jellies, me make Kuih Seri Muka and cousin sis, KC also bring a full plate of Malay kuih muih. So I think end up toooo muchhhhh foodddd.. and got to 'tar pau' after the party.
My Dad more 'keng'... can make Ais Kacang for all of us. The 4 maids at home helped him with the Ais Kacang.
Its cake cutting time and all the kids surrounded my their Tai Mah. This old lady, already 90 years old and in Chinese it is 91 years old and yet still so strong except that she can't walk anymore. My Ah Mah, is always my favourite grandma, who take care and brought me up since I am a baby till the day I get married.
Both Le-Ann and Ee-Thern only attack the icing on the cupcakes and throw away the cakes after they lick the icing. Ish.... geramnya! Look at both of them, play till the whole head is so wet and sweating all around.
Took bath for them and little girl eyes is almost half close but little boy still can play around with Ei Faye Ah Yi's NIKE Shoes. Hahaha.. he looks like Ronald McDonalds hor... with the big shoes!
