  5. Hello, aunty Rose,
    Thank you for sharing all your wonderful recipes.
    I am compiling a cookbook called The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook and was wondering if you’d be willing to contribute your sugee cookie or cake recipe, with acknowledgement of course. I grew up in Singapore and these were one of my favorite snacks/sweets! Please visit my blog: to learn more about my project. Thanks for considering my request!
