  1. Dear Rose,

    What a kind hearted person you are to let cyberspace population have access to your recipes. I too believe that good food must be enjoyed with friends and family and more importantly, recipes should be given freely and accepted with grace.

    I will try your pumpkin noodles – I am sure it is exceptionally refreshing.

    God bless your great heart.

  4. Hi Rose,

    Thank you so much for sharing your home recipes. I have relocated and it is so comforting to learn how to cook (never cook before) homely happy meals from a fellow Singaporean across the globe this way. Just bought pumpkin today, not sure how to cut it up (they are so hard!!) Lol, going to cook your recipe this weekend.
