  4. I dont understand why my Alkaline kueh failed 3 times even following your steps (but using diff brand of rice flour). It’s always too soft and kor-kor one, cannot eat 😦

  6. Hi Rose:
    Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.
    People back home never realized how fortunate they are to be able to eat the kuehs anytime they want.
    I migrated 22 years ago, and we have no choice but to make our own, and your recipes are simply fantastic – exact texture and taste.
    Keep it up and keep well too. We will pray for your recovery. Merry xmas.
