    • Hi Liz, thanks for visiting my blog. I’m totally new in blogosphere and have a lot to learn myself. I’m no expert in Malay cuisine, just able to get by with everyday dishes that I grew up with and I want to share with other non-Malays who may be interested. No fancy stuff only usual dishes. Currently, I’m reading up on etiquette/ethics in blogosphere cos I’m quite clueless 😛 You dropping by kinda motivates me. Thanks.

  1. The Javanese community in Singapore has some very beautiful dishes. Do you know some of these dishes. I was going to do some research on them but I am now living overseas and not able to carry on.

    • Hi Aminah, while I blog because I love to cook. I dedicated this blog especially for Malay cuisines (including Javanese) and culture here in Singapore. Hope you can share with me what dishes you have in mind. Thanks for dropping by ya 🙂

  2. Hi ummi , i am deeply impressed with your passion for cooking and life. I am a sporean too living in taipei. I love baking and love to do that with my 2 girls. They are older now so i am back to baking alone. I tried many of your recipes and they have satisfied my cravings for local food. Thank you for sharing and keep those yummy recipes flowing…
