All I want is the Banana buttercream, looks soooo good!

Hi, Tina. Thanks for your kind words and for letting me know that it's forsythia. Hope you will drop by every so often.

Argus

You have a wonderful blog. Thank you. BTW, just wanted to let you know that the yellow flowers are from the forsythia shrub.

Tina

Hi, WokandSpoon! It's nice to hear from you on one of your rare (these days) forays into the blogosphere. Thanks.

The kuih kodok look yummy!!!! I'm drooling just looking at your photos!

Kenny, LL or I could be the Other Woman spewing stuff in the book. Sounds like fun. ;-)

2008-04-07T02:19:00.000-07:00

Maybe she hasn't seen it yet... she's been so busy of late with work. Poor LL! :(

2008-04-05T15:22:00.000-07:00

Kenny, those are great ideas. Is LL reading this? (Just came back from a 6-day trip to Italy - that's why this late response.)

TH, aiyor -- can guess what your third passion is. Ha ha. Good for you!

Shashi, the writing is sometimes tongue-in-cheek or humorous and sometimes earnest. A bit of the setups is slightly predictable but forgivable.

Wonda, rubber chicken dancing ballet? Sounds like the stuff of funny nightmares!

2008-04-04T05:42:00.000-07:00

Hi Argus

I'm a fan of Chuck's books too (and so, lately, is Bissme). Clown Girl sounds intriguing. But what is the writing style like?

2008-04-02T15:25:00.000-07:00

Hey, I love the way you've mixed food and books – 2 of my life's great pleasures. I won't mention the 3rd! :)

2008-04-01T22:42:00.000-07:00

Kenny, you mean like a "she said this, the other woman said that" book?

Eh, who is the Other Woman lah? Hahaha... Actually that would be a great title for your and LL's book: The Other Woman.

She says, she says. Why not? I can imagine the cover di...

2008-03-31T04:21:00.000-07:00

Argus, Argus,
I couldn't help chuckling when I saw that bookcover with the rubber chicken. Looks like it's ballet dancing! Hehe!

2008-03-29T02:41:00.000-07:00

Hi, Kak Teh. Thanks for the tips. ^_^
The cucur kodok panfried was pretty OK, only not as round as those deepfried. Shaped like chicken nuggets! (It's wonderful sunny, warmish weather here these few days, after snowing for two days earlier in the week.)

2008-03-29T00:23:00.000-07:00

argus, cucur kodok is just what one needs on cold gloomy days, with teh tarik of course. I think for you not to deep fry the mixture, but to make them into pancakes, the mixture has to be a bit thicker. And this is what we call lempeng pisang. And to add to the taste, put some dessicated coconut - it'll give you that nice crunchy taste with the sweet mashed bananas.
Recently I discovered that frying bananas or sweet potatoes with tempura flour is just as nice for banana fritters instead of the usual rice flour.

2008-03-28T08:29:00.000-07:00

Kenny, you mean like a "she said this, the other woman said that" book? Like advice for couples or insights into man-woman relationships?

Zitrongras, what do you mean by league? I've no league. Only a leg, or two. Very 'pai seh' with my slower-than-my-late-grandma output of short stories. (Yes, Ms Poon got a nice cover.)

Wonda, wah! I must rush over to see it.

2008-03-28T07:24:00.000-07:00

Argus,
The cucuk kodok picture I put up has five petals like the sakura!

2008-03-28T03:39:00.000-07:00

Kenny's gone mad. I can't even go near your league. You should ask him to design your book cover, though. He did a great job with Wena Poon's book, Lions in Winter.

2008-03-28T01:27:00.000-07:00

Forget accountants, Grisham and the smell of burnt peanuts --- what you and LL should do is write a book together! Like Stephen King and Peter Straub. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Most definitely it would be cool.

(Of course, the main motive behind me suggesting this is so I can have another book cover to design, hehe.)

2008-03-27T05:44:00.000-07:00

Thanks, FBB. I'm honoured.
Would like to link yours too -- once I have time to trawl through the intricacies of modern-day scribbling.

2008-03-27T04:49:00.000-07:00

FBB, wah! "Taiping lang, Taiping lang!" *jumps excitedly* But I'm not Hokkien. Cantonese.

Never thought of Switzerland as being glamorous. *laughs dementedly*
Watched the Swiss football team play Germany in a friendly last night - like watching hobbits get trounced by elves 0-4. Tsk, tsk!

Don't know what was sticking on the oven tray before Other Half turned it into a bain marie (who's that Marie who took such a hot bath? Did she survive it?!). Better not ask is my policy in order not to hear gross answers.

Lyrical, I'll try to think of you as a potential baddie. ;-)
No need to mess up your nice hair. Just run out to buy some Kuih Kodok from a nice makcik. (Only desperate Malaysians abroad need to break their backs making local goodies.)

One of my blog posts last year was of Jamie Oliver's Bloomin' Brilliant Brownies. Much easier and pretty moist. Lydia Teh tried it with her kids and they loved it.



Aiyah Argus ar, I'm sure there are loads of books ...

2008-03-27T03:57:00.000-07:00

Aiyah Argus ar, I'm sure there are loads of books on accountants after Enron ler. The new baddie no less. :-P

I think I should try making kuih kodok...it won't be as disastrous as my brownie experience, I'm sure.

2008-03-27T03:33:00.000-07:00

ooh, you're in switzerland ah? so glamour. i presume you're msian, since i see pics of my birthplace, ie, taiping on your blog.....

ah, why was the bain marie water browned? mine browns sometimes coz the tin oxidises..... yucky.



Oh, FBB, re: the bain marie my other half fashione...

2008-03-27T03:20:00.000-07:00

Oh, FBB, re: the bain marie my other half fashioned from the tray in the oven. Since his quark pudding required bain marie treatment and we didn't have one, he poured boiling water into the oven tray and placed the muffin pan containing the quarky batter into the water and closed the oven door.

It worked fine, except that after all the hulabaloo, he forgot to empty the tray and the next day, I blindly splashed that browned water when I un-gently pulled out the tray. Ha ha.

2008-03-27T03:16:00.000-07:00

Hi, Zitrongras. You made me chuckle reading about your smelling peanuts in the air. Now which novel has an accountant as the protagonist? Some John Grisham story?
Hope you write one too one day... ;-)

FBB, welcome! And thanks.
I've made Kuih Kodok before without the rice flour ('coz rice flour in Switzerland costs RM7 for 500g or so). It was fine. I guess the crunchiness (from rice flour) will kick in only if you deepfry the kodok.
I've been cooking and baking non-stop almost every day for the past 20 months - so if I didn't share some of the good stuff, I think I might've burst. ^_^
