Hi Lily, I've been reading your blog for a while and I really love it!!!

Can I ask you one question? Is brown sugar the same as as light brown sugar? Coz I only found brown sugar and dark brown sugar around. Thanks a lot!

dark brown sugar has more molasses then light, you can use either in recipes which say brown sugar - the result of cake will only be in the color and perhaps a tinge of taste stronger with the dark.

Dear Auntie Lily,

Although your recipes are all nicely categorized now, I do find it hard to find some recipes.

I was trying to find roti canai this morning and it wasn't under bread.

Lee Ping said...

Dear Auntie Lily,

Have fun in Cancun! How's the food?

i have written to my friend asking her if i could list the names of the recipe in the link.

i don't know somehow i did not consider roti canai as bread and i think it should be in malaysian.

HI Lily,
Have been reading your blog too and thank you so much for sharing all the recipe. I really admire your 'spirit' as you have a blog at your age !! I'm veyr impress while my mum chat with me online but you have a blog !! Wow !!! and I had bookmark your webpage. hehe..

BY the way, I could really find any recipe for paper wrap chicken. There are some of it which is fried but we try to on diet so, thinking if there are any recipe which use bake / grill.

thanks again !!

lilyng said...


paper wrapped chicken is a very old recipe as old as me i think. in fact i have forgotten about it, perhaps it's the deep frying.

of course, you could bake but the crispiness is not there. i don't know about grilling as the paper might get burnt and using foil, the chicken will be like a roast with oriental flavor

沈伊 said...

True.. Thanks !!!

cancun was great, sunny and breezy.

the best part was that the condo we stayed in had a very well equiped kitchen and the supermarkets are within walking distance. Seafood and meat were very fresh, spinach is about the only green leafy veg available.

i had to cook with maggi seasoning and soya sauce but they do have a good variety of salsa.

Lee Ping said...

Yeah! You are back!

Yeah! Your individual recipes are on your template again!

You cooked while you are on vacation? Auntie Lily, I am speechless. :)

i am not a beach person. i would just sit in the shade and read abit but feels very guilty about not doing anything fruitful. it would be better if i could explore a local market.

Lisa said...

Welcomeback...Lily. Cancun? wow, I love that place! remain me while I'm stayed in Bali for couple months for work

Lee Ping said...

The local market in Cancun must be filled with fresh produce.

lilyng said...

lee ping

i don't know cos i did not find a local market and the supermarkets fresh produce are more or less like ours.

mangoes must be in season as they are main attraction and i enjoyed the papaya

hey lily.i m a fan of yr blog.i m a med student studying abroad
.enjoy yr recipe on local msian dishes.i have been trying with yr chee cheong fun recipe.but i cant make a good one.all the chee cheong fun i make are so fragile and it is like not combine together,i stil can taste the biji biji of the rice flour.can u tell me wat's wrong with that?

lilyng said...


do you mean that the finish product is rough in texture? it could be the brand of rice flour that you used.

try sieving the batter before you make the cheong fun.

i used rice flour from thailand, they are very fine

Hi Lily,

I am so glad all your recipes are now on the home page although I also like your categories.

Your blog is my savior; I come here looking for recipes every time I crave the comfort of childhood food I grew up on; way, way better than any of my expensive cookbooks!

I find it nicer to melt the butter first then add it into the egg mixture before pan frying them in a non stick pan.
