About Rose


Hi! My name is Rose and I really love cooking and baking and experimenting with new recipes. After recovering from Breast cancer in 2005 I decided that I really wanted to share my favourite recipes with people who also love cooking and baking. I have a large compilation of recipes – some are my own, some I have found. I am in the process of transferring all of them online so that my family and everyone else can have access to them. I really don’t want these recipes to go to waste! I hope you will enjoy these recipes as much as I have.   Comments and Feedback are always appreciated. God bless! – Rose

March 2009 update:

  1. I was just curious where you got the name of your cake from, I thought it was interesting that my name was used

  2. Sugee is actually a malay word for semolina. It is often used for puddings and cakes.

  22. may i know how to make a fresh cream topping on a cake?

    Comment by bernie | April 25, 2007 | Reply

  23. Hi Bernie,
    You can use Rich’s Topping Cream, Anchor Whipping Cream or any other Brands available. It’s a mater of preference.
    To every 250g of Rich’s Topping Cream, I add 1 tbsp of castor sugar. Whisk the cream with sugar until stiff then add 1 tbsp of Cointreau or Kirsch (if desired).

  25. Hi Bernie,
    Softasilk flour is a refined and highly-bleached all-purpose flour milled from soft wheat. It gives cakes high volume and fine texture.

    Greetings from Canada!

    Came upon your site while I was looking for recipes for “lap cheong”. Thank you for posting your recipe. I’ll try it as soon as I can.

    I see you have posted a number of recipes I’m very interested in trying. I’ll try as many as I can and let you know of the results.

    Great site; I’ll visit regularly.

    Do try the recipes and give me your feedback. Since you are interested in “lap cheong” I’ll post the “lap yoke” too.
    I think it might be better to dry them up in a very slow oven instead of leaving them to dry in the open for days.
    All the Best!

  37. Hi Rose, Thanks for sharing your recipes with us. I have tried out your Ang Ku Kueh recipe (Mung Bean) and it turns out fantastic. I would like to try out coconut filling, would appreciate it if you can share the coconut filling recipe with us. Is the recipe for Ang Ku Kueh can be use for making “Hainanese Kueh” – the white colour with coconut, peanut and I think there is ginger inside too.

    Thank yo.

I would be grateful if you can give me the ingredients and method of cooking the coconut filling. Can I prepare it one day in advance and do I need to put in the refrigerator. Mine always turned out to be too dry and not fragrant.

    Do you have recipe for Pulut Panggang? The grilled banana rice rolls with spicy dried shrimp & coconut filling? Thanks!
    A little baking tip – if you want to use fresh cream for decorating and it tends to melt and fall flat too quickly, you can add some Jello instant pudding mix to the cream and beat together. The cream then holds up really well and you can even pipe designs and it will stay.

  62. Hi Rose,

    I’m thankful to have found this blog. I am very interested in baking and pastry. I’m still taking classes which I have to stop this semester because I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m in the process of scheduling a time for surgery. I’m wondering if you mind sharing your experience with me. I’m a little nervous but I know that God has been walking beside me and also the support from my family and friends. I still think that talking to the people who has gone through this will help me tremendously. Hope to hear from you soon. Happy new year with all the blessing from above!

    The reason I wrote to you is I am a former Singaporean now became a U.S citizen and married to a wonderful American man for twenty years.
    I always missed the Nonya Kuih and even when I got the cookbook from my Singapore and Malaysian friends, the measurents are in metric and I have to convert to our U.S
    unit scale.

    Also I am looking for a Hoochew Oyster Cake recipe and wonder if you have it.

Tried it whilst I was still in Singapore but the dough shrinks everytime, I cut it to a round shape. Any advice and do you have the recipe? I am now based in Perth.

    Greeting from Sana’a,Yemen.
    We’re (me,my husband,daughter)sharing good news here.
    Since in here have lots of fishes and pretty cheap compared with meat. But we’re boring with fried,soup, or steam fish.Suddenly I remembered about Yie Yuan Soup.
    I tried made fish ball, but came out soft, we like it a little bit spongy.would you like to help me how to do it?
    And thank you very much by sharing your wonderful recipies.
    Bless you& family heaps.

  99. A friend of mine (Kristi) is being treated for ovarian cancer, it was discovered at stage 4 though. I have been to Singapore about 7 times and always enjoyed the Kueh Lapis cake so I’m going to attempt to make one for her. She’s lost a lot of weight so a rich cake like this should be good for her. Not sure what the Rempah Kueh spice mix is so I’ll probably substitute almond extract and ground allspice. Hope there is some magic in the recipe too.

  100. Hi Rose,

    I missed the Hong Kong style of wonton. The taste is so unique and I get it only in Sam Woo REstaurant when I lived in CA. Do you have the recipe on how to make them? If so, please advise.

  104. Dear Rose,

    Chanced upon your webiste whilst stuck at home undergoing chemotherapy for Stage 2A breast cancer( cyle for TCH).

    Your recipes are lovely! I have been in HK for the past 20 years and miss Malaysian food very much.

    Now that I am on chemo where everything tastes metallic, I dreamt about char kway teow, assam laksa, Ipoh hor fun, etc until I cried out my heart and wished I was home……that’s why I’m surfing to at least look at the pictures and recipes.

    Where are you based? You are noble and generous to share your recipes online. I guess us BC sisters have a different perspective in life after battling the illness. We love to share………info about the illness, food, life, etc.

    I am currently based in Shanghai and I have 2 young kids. They love eating fish balls so I came to know about your website while looking on how to make fresh fish balls. Great recipe…thanks for sharing. Will try some of your other stuff too.

  106. Hi Rose,

    I just wanted to say that you are so amazing for battling your breast cancer and surviving. Your recipes are amazing and you remind me so much of my grandmother. I am a 4th generation New Zealand born Chinese and I miss my grandmothers cooking- she lives in a different city. Its good to be able to make proper chinese tasting food – not european chinese food that you tend to buy.

  111. Hi Rose,
    I’m sure you have read the recent newspaper report on the unhygenic conditon of the noodle factories.Would appreciate if you can give me the recipe on how to make rat tail / loh shee fun. The recipe I found requires each noodle to be made by hand. Any recipe where I can cook the flour mixture and hand press it into the carrot shredder ?The pressed mixture is then dropped into a pot of hot water.

  112. Hi! Rose,
    It me again. I was reading all the commences given to you and found it to be very interesting. I am from a peranakan family and I am sur your receipes are good stuff to try out.
    I hope you could share yr kueh lapis with me. This is my daughter’s favorite cae. I have to buy it each time I visit her in Australia. Kueh Lapis is so expensive & some is not good enough. maybe trying making them will be fresher than buying. Thank you.

  113. Hi Rose,

    I just want to let you know that I’ve been using your recipes for Pandan cake, Ang ku kueh, and Nasi Lemak, and they have always been a great success! I’m a Singaporean living in Seattle US right now, and we have a very active and big Singaporean group here (thanks to Microsoft!). So far, everyone said the food I cooked with your recipes are probably closest to those back home. So MANY MANY thanks to you for sharing! It definitely makes a lot of us less homesick…

    Oh – can I share those of your recipes I have tried on my Facebook page?

  114. Hello Rose

    I made ayam buah keluak the other day … it was such a tedious task removing the meat from the shells and stuffing them back in again… Can the shells be re-used. The next time I can just buy the meat withou the shells and re-use the ones I have used previously. Pls advise.

    Tks & best regards

  116. Hi Rose, just went thru your website, all the food seem so tasty but because I am under chemotherapy for breast cancer, I can only read your food but will sure like to taste it when I have get over my illness. Today I will try to make tapioca kuek without coconut. Would you share with me what to eat during my chemotherapy? Thank you!

    Comment by Silvia | December 10, 2009 | Reply

    • Hi Silvia, my advice is to cut down on deep fried food, barbecued food and sweet stuff. Take more food that are high in antioxidant. Broccoli, asparagus, pumpkin, carrot, blueberries and strawberries are good for you. After chemo I usually drink some barley water and if blood count is low I’ll drink some red dates tea. Apple with carrot juice is also good for the body. Sad to say, after I came down with breast cancer I’m less active in the kitchen but that does not deter me from putting up nice recipes for others to enjoy. Take care. God bless!

  117. Hello Rose. Thank you for this generous blog and bringing people together across the world through food! I am going to try my hand at making ang ku kueh, but I have never used a wooden cake mold before. Must I prepare it in some way prior to use? And I assume that I clean with soap and water and then let dry? Thank you for your help!

  118. Dear Rose – thank you so much for starting to blog again! I stumbled across your blog in early 2010 when I was searching for a recipe for cendol, and was delighted to find someone posting such gorgeous Singaporean (or is it Malaysian?) recipes. Then, when I didn’t see anything for a while I thought you must have stopped blogging. Please keep it up … best wishes, Karin (Canberra, Australia)

  128. I recently found a handwritten recipe for a Pandan Cake which calls for 2 1/2 glass of self rising flour. Wondering if you know if that is really talking about our glass liquid mearsure or if it is something else entirely. It also has in the margin 4/5 to 9/10 glass must be standard.

It’s somewhat new, but I trust that someday it will be as popular as yours
