About this Cook
Well, I'm just a student gone overseas, to some unknown place called Germany; stuck here with Brockwurst und Sauerkraut, it's enough to make anyone shout... So I cook myself to save some money and also my own "spirit". I'm from Malaysia, a multicultural society, so my food tend to have a "mixed" style.
My favorite things to cook
Quick and Easy meals are my favourite. As a student, I have not much time to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together in a family. The togetherness, the laughter and the chatter.
My cooking triumphs
Spring rolls!!!!! Black Forest Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Curry, Dim Sum, Spaghetti Bolognese, Fettucine Carbonara, Lagsagne, Hawaiian Cheese Burger, Fried Spicy Chicken Wings, Sour Tofu Soup, Laksa Lemak (Spicy Coconut Milk Fish Noodles), Fried Mushroom Bacon ...etc.
My cooking tragedies
... not yet so far...

Dark Chocolate Cake I
My husband is German and loves blackforest cake, and this is the perfect base for it! I add half a cup of rum and a teaspoon of rum extract to the dough. It makes a moist, dark cake very suitable for cherries and whipped cream. =D
