Sweet Potato Balls

this was an additional dish we prepared for mid autumn festival celebration.

really simple to make and yummy at the same time :) i chanced upon this recipe on Rasa Malaysia. and later realised rasa malaysia provides many interesting recipes on their site. do go take a look!

kenny and kang rolling the dough into small balls, then later coating them with sesame seeds...

jessie and i was busy with the frying of the sweet potato balls. look! golden brown, yummy-looking sweet potato balls :) lots of the sesame seeds fell off during the deep-frying process..

Sweet Potato Balls
Taken from Rasa Malaysia.


1 lb of sweet potatoes
12 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
Oil for deep frying


Boil the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes. Peel the skin of the sweet potatoes and discard. Smash the sweet potatoes and combine them with flour, sugar, and just enough water to form a smooth dough that is soft in texture but not sticky.

Divide dough into small, equal portions and roll them into balls. Coat the balls with some sesame seeds. Deep fry the sweet potato balls till golden brown. Dish out and drain well before serving.

Snowskin Lotus Paste Mooncake

suqi's hands haha

and this is mine!

this is a very late post, considering that mid autumn festival was weeks ago!

this year i made snowskin lotus paste mooncakes with the help of a few friends :) it was for our mini mid autumn festival celebration we held in school about 2 weeks ago. and we even added a slip of "riddle" in the mooncake for a game! it was lots of fun that evening with lots of food and good company :)

the photos are courtesy of stanley, our expert photographer whom i pestered to take pictures of the mooncakes for me! thanks stanley :D

i have many more long over-due posts but simply have too little time to blog about it..

Thank You for making My Day :)

poor me had to go down to lab on a saturday 2 weeks ago, which coincidentally was my birthday :(

went home rather late to have dinner at sakae sushi with sis and mum, together with him. and he baked a pineapple cheesecake for me :) so cute cos he made it in an Fortune Palace Bird's Nest box. it was a no-bake cheesecake and i think he didn't refridgerate it long enough so it was quite soft ;p

a quick celebration in the kitchen at home!

Japanese Cheesecake

i baked this japanese cheesecake sometime ago..haha been too busy to blog about it.

anyway, this recipe was taken from catherine lau's cheescake seduction which i borrowed from the library. i felt the egg white taste was a tad too stong..and probably cos i didn't mix the egg white mixture well with the cream cheese mixture :(

i just read from a forum that the publisher for this book was sued against by a homemaker who bought the book and her cakes did not turn out as good as the book described. by the way, the book contains many beautiful pics of all sorts of cheesecake. that was why it tempted me to borrow it from the library while i was browsing thru the shelves.

the cake rose till quite high :)

Oreo Cheesecake

baked an oreo cheesecake for teng yong's birthday and jessie's early birthday celebration.

and we also had cblc orientation that day for the new members who are joining us this year :)

anyw jessie turned 20 last sunday; so here's wishing the girl a happy birthday!

there they are!

i got this receipe from alex goh's fantastic cheesecake. i've tried it once and i think it's a really easy to make cake. something like a mix and bake cake, no hassle! oh yes, i omitted the oreo biscuits in the filling cos i ran out of them haha. only enough for me to make the base! i used buttercream for the deco, but still needs lots of improvement ;p but i'm happy thou, haven't really played around much with buttercream before this.
