The warmth and the love of family, especially Aunt Mindy. Some of her many homemade treats/ dishes/ meals:
Kaya Kueh [A traditional Nyonya/ Chinese steamed glutinous rice cooked in coconut cream and served with Kaya (Coconut Jam)]
Chinese New Year Ribbon Biscuits
Lor Mai Kai (Steamed glutinous rice with chicken, Chinese mushrooms and Chinese preserved pork: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lo_mai_gai)
Kerabu Sauce for rice porridge.
Gyoza (Pork Dumplings) served with Homemade Chilli Oil - Uncle Will and NickG helped out in the kitchen making these pretty dumplings. I am very proud of my Uncle helping out in the kitchen! "It's about time for you too, Dad!"
Chicken Pies and Curry Puffs
Cinnamon Buns and Chicken Floss Rolls
Char Koay Teow (Fried flat rice noodles) - So far, it was THE BEST I have ever tasted in Australia!! The real Penang Char Koay Teow, aye!
Fried Belacan Chicken
Chicken Kebabs and Fish Balls Kebabs (DamienG's fav!)
Chicken Satay served with mouth-watering Satay Sauce!
Homemade... Homemade....!!! The way to go!!! Hehe...
By uploading and blogging only about the food prepared/ made by Aunt Mindy, not only did the photos make me salivating, they made me think of a week's break in Melbourne was all worth it - family, food, shopping. I miss them... My loved ones. =)
