  1. HI Rose,
    I came across your website when I was trying to looking for chiffon cake recipes. That’s wonderful and generous of you to share your recipes. I appreciate it. Are U peranakan by the way? See quite a lot of nyonya recipes.

    Just wrote to find out how to are. Are there any specific prayer needs?

    Jesus loves you,

  3. Thankyou! My parents are chinese, but I’m living in London. Whenever I get home sick I crave chinese food, especially dishes that I can’t get over here, like asian sweets. So thank you for your recipes. I look forward to trying them.
