Wedding Dresses


Wedding Dresses 2015 UK

I was on the phone with my daughter the other day and she told me that come 2015 she’ll have quite a fair bit of travelling to do.  Oh, I asked her whether it’s work related or otherwise and she revealed that there are two weddings to attend back home in Malaysia.  That sounds great to me as I’ll get to see more of her next year.

Weddings… how sweet to see two lovebirds tying the knot in matrimony.   Then I reminisced that decades ago we have had to get our bridal dresses or gowns tailored or rented and according to Chinese customs, brides had to wear the ‘Qun Kua’ a traditional two piece attire, with a black embroidered top and a red embroidered skirt for the customary tea ceremony.   But nowadays the  whole attire is in red.   These ‘Qun Kua’ were rented as well.

Now in this era of modern technology, have you ever heard of purchasing wedding dresses on-line?  This sounds interesting, doesn’t it?  I for one have never thought of buying anything on-line, be it clothes, books, bags, accessories, etc.

But to the younger generation, nowadays very often they like to purchase their stuff on-line.  Reasons that they cited are, they can view the products on-line in the comfort of their home or on their IPad when they’re out and on top of that get feedback from reviews of those people who have had purchased the goods.  Moreover, these reviews are blatant truths and not some comments fabricated to the advantage of the retailers.

I was browsing through the internet for on-line purchases and out of curiosity, typed in ‘Wedding dresses on-line’ in the Google address bar and I was surprised that so many websites popped up.  Some had very pretty, slim models adorned in lovely wedding dresses, with beautiful fabrics such as satin, organza, some beaded while some embroidered, short, long, whatever lengths, you name it, they have it. 

But one particular website caught my eye.   It’s ‘Wedding Dresses 2015 UK’  with very affordable prices ranging from 100 to 500 sterling pounds and there’s an option in USD and Euro currencies as well.   What’s more, they also have a ‘Flash Sale Program’ which offers prices up to a 60% discount!   That’s very attractive, isn’t it? 









So for those of you readers who are planning for your big day in 2015, especially the UK residents, do hop over to their website for Wedding Dresses 2015 for their latest wedding styles be it for spring or summer!

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
