Hua Nam Coffeeshop, New Town , Ipoh

Hua Nam Coffeeshop in new town ipoh has been around for many years now and still churning lots of delicious hawker food. I am definately one who will never miss visiting this shop for my afternoon tea. I will always go for the “Law Mee” and always make sure the stall serve them in Penang style. “Law Mee” is noodle dish serve in a dark sauce and comes with topping such as shreeded chicken, sliced prawns, deep fried onions and some ‘sambal” chilli paste. It is nothing new as you can get this similat dish in Kuala Lumpur and even in Petaling jaya. So what make this particular dish so uniqe? Well, got to say I was introduce to this dish by my cousin Jennie, She taught me how to eat this dish and that makes the dish so unique and so delicious. This stall serve pickle crushed garlic. What you have to do is just add those pickled crushed garlic into your “Law Mee” noodle and mix them into the dish evenly. OMG! now you will be able to taste such a unique taste and flavour of this “Law Mee”. A must try if you are in Ipoh!


Another delicious noodle that you can enjoy at this coffeeshop is the Curry Noodle. So delicious and I hardly can describe thwem to you. I think you need to try yourself and from my pictures, they tell! …lol!






Rojak is also something that need to try here. What makes this rojak dish so delicious…of course is the rojak sauce. I also love the the prawn crackers serve on the rojak. So crunchy and so tasty when eaten with the rojak sauce. And those crushed peanuts toppings really adds the flavour of this rojak. This rojak is really something that i would crave for…… so to say, something to die for……………..lol! Same goes with their Sotong dish….you have a try and let me know later!



Hokkien “Har Mee” is also a winner here. A noodle dish that comes with slice pork and shrimps and comes with prawns soup. Lovely!

The Fuleila Balls

It had been almost 2 months that I had not seen my mum and aunt, who happened to be staying in Ipoh and it takes about 2 hours drive from my place, Kuala Lumpur. So I decided to bake some goodies for them and fuleila balls was my choice. It is a crunchy type of cookies on the outer layer and soft on the inside. This type of cookies are dusted with icing sugar, and they will able to give you the coldness taste and feeling as you bite into them. Yes, they are lovely and defintely will be the perfect gift to someone you dearly love. I can bet all mums will love them. They can be beautifully packed and an ideal gift for this coming christmas.

softened butter 130g
powdered sugar 60g
grated almondpowder 50g
cake flour 150g
vanilla syrup (monin) 10ml
chopped walnut 40g
icing sugar for dusting

1. In a bowl, combine butter and powdered sugar until incorporated.
2. Add grated almond powder, cake flour, vanilla syrup and chopped walnut, stir until dough. Wrap by plastic bag about 30 minutes.
3. Divide dough into 6g for each small ball, bake about 23 minutes, upper and lower both 150C.
4. Dust icing sugar on cookie surface.

I love and really enjoyed having this fuleila balls with a cup of fresh illy black espresso. My mum and aunt did enjoy this fuleila balls and not forgotten the chocolat brownies that I baked recently.

DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) DESSERT

I am sure you are very eager by now, waiting patiently for my tiramisu, but before that I would like to invite you to view The Ho Chak! TV8 program (Ho Chak! 5 – Episode 5 – Part 1) which had featured Chef Steven Cheng and his mini Buddha jump over the wall (mini futt till cheong), myself and sidney were also interviewed.

The picture below is not the mini Buddha jump over the wall dish but it is an extra large Xiu Long Bao (oppssss…..) which I saw and captured through my lense while I was at the Kuala Lumpur newest shopping mall, the Pavalion. It is really exciting and really can’t imagine sipping the soup inside of the dumpling through using a straw. Well, it will be even more exciting if a dessert can be eaten that way using a straw sipping all the great juices and continue eating and enjoying them.

So what is the most best dessert that can be eaten the same way as this huge Xio Long Bau? What came into my mind was this dessert called Tiramisu, but how should it be done? Therefore let us explore and see how we can enjoy having the similar thing but as a dessert.


Things that needed would be a good cup of espresso, coffee syrup, sponge cake, tiramisu cream and a good container to hold this exciting and delicious Tiramisu. The Tiramisu container that I used is this illy tappered glass as shown below.


Make some good brewed espresso according to your taste and set it aside, but as usual I use illy espresso coffee. You can get a tin of illy espresso coffee powder about 150gm for RM23(USD6) at Isetan, KLCC.


Making Tiramisu Cream

Whipping cream 120ml
Egg yolks 35g
Sugar 40g
Sweet Marsala 45ml
Mascarpone, softened 110g

1. Get the tappered glass ready before beginning preparation
2. Whip the whipping cream to soft peaks. Cover and reserve under refrigeration.
3. (Sabayon) Combine egg yolks, sugar and marsala in a stainless steel bowl and whip together until thoroughly blended. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat, whisking constantly, until the moisture is thick and foamy and has reached at least 165F/74C.
4. Remove from the heat and whip, using an electric mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment, on high speed until cool.
5. Fold the egg yolk mixture into the mascarpone. Gently blend in approximately one-third of the reserved whipped whipping cream. Fold in the remaing whipped whipping cream.
6. Immediately pipe or spead into prepared tappered glass which contained espresso coffee and sponge cake.

Sponge Cake


Espresso and sponge cake with coffee syrup are assembled into the illy tappered glass. Once done, pipe the Tiramisu cream into the the illy tappered glass and finish it with a dust of chocolat powder and snow sugar. Cover and refrigerate until completely set.

Once the tiramisu is chilled, you just need a straw and a teaspoon. Plunge the straw into the tiramisu and start sipping the chilled espresso and start digging into it. It is really fantastic and for myself, I just can’t stop enjoying having them and hope that goes same with you too.

A Wedding Reception on 1st September 2007

1st September was a grand white wedding reception for Nasreen and Azlan at the Museum Restaurant, Islamic Arts Museum, Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant was situated just opposite the National Mosque. Really love the setting of this restaraunt, a fabulous middle eastern ambient, deco and there is also a fountain garden courtyard. So cosy and so relaxing.


The decoration for the wedding was beautiful and so glamorous, tables were full with lovely huge imported white roses. So beautiful and so well arranged. So when comes to the wedding cake, I was called!… lol. I was requested to deliver a lovely, simple and yet a delicious white wedding cake. So decided to keep it as simple as for the design, classic and yet delicious, a blackforest cake with fresh cream, decorated with white chocolate and comes in a two tiered should be the one. There was also a special request that the wedding figuring should be placed onto the cake. Ain’t the figuring looks so lovely.





Thank you, Nasreen and Azlan for giving us the oppurtunity to bake this cake for you on your lovely wedding day.

Yours, Sunny Yaw

Cheessy Minced Prawn Wrap

I had been dinning in many places here and there in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, what really excites me and had caught my eyes was this entree dish, Deep Fried Prawn Wrap. I even saw this similar dish being prepared over the glass window of Dragon I Restaurant. I do say, it is so exciting to see those chefs preparing the food whereby you know you are going to feast them. Marvellous indeed.

Anyway, here I would like to share my Deep Fried Cheessy Minced Prawn Wrap. For this dish I had utilised minced beef mixed with minced prawn, large prawns, slice cheese and also beancurd wrapper.


Firstly placed the mixed mince meat on top of the beancurd wrapper then placed on top a slice of cheese and the large prawn.

Wrap them like the above. Deep fry them till golden brown. This cheessy minced prawn wraps can be eaten deliciously with thai chilli sauce.

Ingredients
200 gm minced beef
50 gm minced prawn
8pcs (4″x4″) beancurd wrappers
8 slices cheese
8 large unshelled prawns

Hope you will try this lovely dish.

Fashion to Icing Cake Designs

It was just another weekend roaming in town where I look for inspiration. I saw this dress which I had captured through my lense at the Art & Craft Centre when I was visiting the Malaysia Tourism Centre along Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. The colours were so soft, vibrant, elegant and such a unique combination. It was a modern flora batik design and crafted into an elegant evening dress. The colours somehow had embedded deep in my head and it was so strong that I decided to transfer them into my crafted icing cake.



Truely, it is fun to create something so inspiring when you never know what you can stumble upon.
