Hi Jonzz,

Thank you. May the new year brings you sugar and spice and everything nice. :)
Hi Winniethepooh,

Happy New Year to you and all at home. :)
Hi Nightwing,

Thank you.

Here's wishing you all the best of 2008. Happy New Year!
Hi William,

Ada...ada...Santa sent a few. :)

What about you? You have been nice all year, ya....so Santa should be very generous with you. ^O^

Here's wishing you a great 2008!
Hi Ah Nel,

No problem.....63 or 630 pun no problem. :)
Hi Day Dreamer,

It's suppose to be symbolic....one ball for each year and one extra one for the coming new year when you are one year older and one year wiser too. :)
Hi Doc,

Those days, the folks used homemade colouring extracted from plants. Now, it is more convenient to use permitted food-colouring.
Hi Kat,

Kamsiah so much for your kind wishes and also for your kind offer which I may just take it up one of these days. Small and cosy pad...gua suka. :)

Here's wishing you and family a great and happening 2008!
Hi Mistipurple,

Thank you so much. :)

May 2008 brings you the best of everything...sunny skies and happy days. :)
Hi Suituapui,

You have to eat 55 tambah 1 = 56
hahahaha....slowly enjoy it.

BTW, are you referring to the kueh ee with crushed peanut filling? Oh...that one, I think is Hainanese style. Big round balls....one bowl 3 balls pun cukup liao.

As for the cooked glutinous flour, cut up and then coated in pounded peanut/sugar, it's call 'mua chee'. Gua suka makan this jugak. :)
Hi Marsha,

You like to eat or not? I like it wor.
Hi Kenny,

6 years missed liao ar? Lidat, your age have not changed lar. hahahhaha....

Happy New Year to you. Hope to see you when you come back next.
