Chinese New Year is almost here!

When I heard the clanking sound of the mould when my mom makes the kuih kapit (or love letter in English). The clanking sound reminds me that the Chinese New Year is just around the corner. Kuih Kapit is one of my favorite cookies which I only get to eat during the Chinese New Year. My other favorite cookies is the peanut cookies which my mom will only make for the Chinese New Year. As a kid, I used to help to my mom to fold the Kuih Kapit into fan shape and stack them into a Milo tin. Right now, I still do the same task most of the time but sometime, I get to take care of 5 or 6 moulds by a charcoal stove. The stove is just a temporary stove which my mom builds using sand, bricks and steel bars on the floor for making the Kuih Kapit. It is a hot and tedious job actually. But then, what is Chinese New Year without Kuih Kapit and peanut cookies!

Come back la next year! Then, come to my house. You can have free-flow of CNY cookies in my house.
Or
