Hi Crystal! Nice recipes...but sometimes I can't relate to them cause I have no idea what they're supposed to be.

Ironic cause I'm Chinese, but I'm not familiar with Singaporean chinese cuisine.

Do you want to try out desserts like cookies, cakes, cupcakes, brownies etc.? That would be fun.

Hi Mel

No worries, you and I come from different era, ha...ha....

My little guy is almost the same as you, i trying to introduce all these to him ;)

Yes, baking would be fun, but i don't have the equipment yet. Therefore, there is no recipe on these in my blog. :)

Oh...I don't have much equipment either, that's why I decided to get an oven. My parents agreed in the end. With an oven, imagine all the stuff I could do!

Hi Mel

That's nice. You got an oven. You can have all the fun. I don't.

Cheers, :)
