Knitting project continues...

The scarf in progress that was shown in previous blog turned out to be this. I changed the pattern to the lace type which I think is nicer (hopefully it is).

This is my first time knitting a pair a socks. It is kind of too thick to go with the shoes. Maybe just wear it at home.

The socks suit both our feet. Guess whose feet are they? ;p

My next project runway is a pair of gloves.. but stuck half way and don't know to progress on. Still trying to figure out how to knit the fingers...

Meat Dumpling

First attempt of making dumplings all by myself. At home I usually make them together with my mum. They turned out quite well but still got room for improvement :)

Second attempt of making steamed pau

This was my second attempt of making steamed pau. It turned out quite nice especially the skin because I used the pau flour that I bought from an asian store rather than the plain white flour. I cheated on the fillings as I used ready made kaya and chocolate. This time I used the steamer that my best friend gave me. It is really easy to use and save time too. Altogether, I made 12 small buns with this 250g pau flour.

Steamed vegetable pau

These steamed vege pau didn't turn out to be nice especially the skin. Someone commented that he was eating pizza rather than pau. So can u imagine how hard they were?? Anyway this was my first trial here using plain flour instead of pau flour.

and again...

I guess it is much cheaper to buy spring onion rather than grow our own.
