CNY Swiss Garden 1

It had been a prosperous year 2011 and I had been invited to taste those beautiful dishes. Like last night Julia had invited me “Loh Sang” with her close friends. It was a fabulous night. Thanks Julia! There I was at “On the Table” meeting up with owner & Chef Riz! It was an awesome beautiful and well decorate restaurant. The Loh Sang was splendid! So creatively prepared! I will tell you more later on my facebook!

Yet I also attended another fabulous gathering with people from the media, journalists and bloggers at Flavors, Swiss Garden Hotel. We had a fabulous Loh Sang, this time it was different, we all were gathered to a long table and we toasted the Yee Sang! It was awesome, filled with such joy and laughter! What’s more, we had great company!

Hong Kee Dim Sum, Petaling Jaya

If you are around Petaling Jaya area during the weekends, Hong Kee Dim Sum is the place to be and to have your Dim Sum breakfast. Hong Kee is located at SS22, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya. I also came to know few food bloggers are going crazy with Hong Kee Dim Sum. As for me I would say Hong Kee Dim Sum is above average.


I got to say I adored this one, “Loh Mai Kai” (Chicken, chinese mushroom steam with glutinous rice). So delicious and just the right recipe!



“Hor Yip Fan” Glutinous rice in lotus leave also one of my favourite. It is similar to “Loh Mai Kai” but with the present of egg yolk, the taste had been really enhanced tremendiously.

“Siew Mai” (meat dumpling) is lovely too. I love those meat texture and so juicy!

“Har Gaw” (shrimp dumpling) is not too bad but prefer that the shrimp be more meaty. The skin was not too thick which is good.


“Woo KoK” (yam dumpling) is great too but I still adore Bidor’s Pun Chun yam dumplings.


The deep fried beancurd sheet with shrimp filling is one of my favoutirt dim sum all the time beside the “Har Gaw”. I love shrimps!

As for this one, the deep fried pastry with shrimps was not my cup of tea at all, I was totally let down as it was not prepared properly. It would had been a fantastic dim sum but due to the oil collected, makes the pastry turned soggy.


Oh! dessert is our specialty but we truely enjoy this two pastries, the sesame ball pastry was good and the egg tart was so marvellous.

So what are we waiting for, let go to Hong Kee for Dim Sum . . . . Sidney

Black & White Cupcake (Part 1)

It had been a great weekend…. and as usual busy, but still manage to have time to meet up with friends and have lunch on Sunday. Busy with? really?… well baking for most, visiting new malls such as Pavilion and the Gardens, dinner with Steven Cheng, our new on board and regular food churner at Big Boys Kitchen, nothing else to talk but just talk about food over dinner… sounds bored but it was really a journey about food, creation and taste, it was something no one would like to share… especially their secrets. I did check on other bloggers update post and also not forgetting, updating my post.

Got to say, last week was such a happening days, for most we would like to thank Little Corner of Mine for awarding us the Creative Blogger Award. Thank you very much and will soon be awarding to some other great bloggers out there in the cyberworld.

Secondly, me and Sid had our 30 second fame on telly 6pm today. Steven Cheng was interviewed and his dish “mini monk jump over the wall” was featured on 8TV’s “Ho Chiak” food program. We were also interview about the dish…… and sid was having a joyly time… not forgetting me too.

On this post, I am posting my latest collection of cupcakes and I call them black & white cupcakes. Here I baked caramel banana cupcakes and decorated them with dark chocolat ganache and white butter cream and finished them off with chocolat at the centre. There are two sizes and with different decoration, a medium and a big ones and both of this cupcakes are available at Ole Cafe.




Prefer to keep them simple and maintain their natural beauty and elegant. They look so gorgeous just like my own babies. I also know that you are waiting for my tiramisu, and will be posting them this week. So while waiting make sure you have mascarpone cheese, sponge cake and a good espresso waiting in your fridge.

The World of Marzipan

It had been an honour to received this “Power of Schmooze”, a blogging community involvement award from such a famous food blogger, a food columist, a cooking instructor, a food photographer, a writer and also a wife with two little lovely and adorable kids, Jaden. And we, Big Boys Oven would like to thank you Jaden at Steamy Kitchen in Sarasota, Florida for given this award to us, thank you. Other recipients are Luna Pier Cook, Kirk, Wandering Chopsticks, 80 Breakfasts and Vanilla Garlic.

Schmoozing as defined by Dictonary.com is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much. To recognize those bloggers who exhibit strong schmoozing skills, the new Power of Schmooze award was created!

In this article that I am going to pen down, may not be new but it had been something really treasured in my heart for a long time and I decided to venture back this fantastic and exciting craft, Marzipan. In this mazipan world, not many people would like to venture as they really take time to be crafted and many had lost their patient. But for some who pursue and found this passion will able to tell you their story of their creation, how they able to bring a pieces of confection made of sugar and ground almonds to live. I would said the joy encountered whereby money could not buy.

For once I had mischeviously crafted myself with marzipan into marzipan……. hahahahaha…. it is me…. Sunny Yaw, the one pictured below. As everyone says, when you start any experimenting with something, you will do it to yourself first, and this is what I did…. me, mazipan Sunny Yaw in his chef uniform, looks young, innocent, yuppie and cute, ……lol.


With mazipan, I also created a pair of frog singing and celebrating with joy. They looks so lifely, joyful and cute.



I also created a little lion cub sitting alone looking for love and seeking for someone to cuddle or to be taken home……….



Lastly I crafted a pair of lovely piggy having fun and also trying hard to be very naughty………….

Here, I would like to express that the works of mazipan can be very time consuming and takes a lot of patient but the rewards are really overwhelming. To create something so lifely, so joyful and so wonderful can be very rewarding. I therefore would recommend this craft to you as it brings lots of joy into your life.

Love, Sunny Yaw
