malaysian /spanish lunch

today's lunch was to celebrate mum's birthday. I regretted having breakfast so late coz there was so much food! instead of going out to a restaurant they each made their own dishes.

when a bunch of malaysian aunties get together you can expect good food. i wonder whether it would be the same when my generation become aunties. on top here is auntie suppman's paella. i think she got inspired by sandra's paella on masterchef. there were mussels, olives, roast capsicum, shrimp, turkey breast and olives in it.
here's that much hyped up crust from its bottom!
she also made a mango pudding using aeroplane jelly and fresh mango.
another auntie made this penang lobak which is somewhat like a roll made from minced pork and other root veggies encased in a soy wrinkled skin. [fuchok!]
my mum made this siu yoke [ salty roast pork] with crispy crackling skin.
for dessert there was a cappucino cheesecake from the cheesecake shop.
it was really rich and creamy and alcoholic. the base tasted like it was made from crushed anzac cookies or something involving dessicated coconut and golden syrup. delicious but i personally prefer the lighter, fluffy European type cheesecakes made with ricotta.
speaking of masterchef, i hope Poh wins. we'll see tomorrow!

Hi, I’ve announced this year’s Merdeka Open House theme. Do take some time to participate ;-). Perhaps get all these Malaysian aunties to contribute haha. Thanks.
