  1. Hi Rose. I’m very gald to come across your website and to read about you as we share the same passion of ‘sharing’. I wrote and published in Nov 2006, a recipe book called ‘Grandmothers’ Recipes-tales from Two Peranakan Kitchens’ featuring recipes from my twin heritage of Singapore and Penang, as I wanted to preserve these family recipes. The book did very well and my distributor wants me to publish another which I’m contemplating! Meanwhile, I’m giving cooking lessons to maids from my home kitchen as I believe I can provide a necessary service to maids and families to have good home-cooked meals! I’m not good at baking and when someone gave me some freshly-dugged tapioca, I decided to look into the net for a recipe and came across your website. I’m going to try this recipe and will feed back on it! It’s such a coincidence that we share a similar name, but I’d surely like to know where you come from! Cheers…Rosaline Soon from Singapore

  3. Hi Liane,
    This recipe uses fresh tapioca, tapioca flour will make it very starchy.
    God bless!
