Gimme, gimme, gimme…

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I got some traditional kuih gunting and kuih kereta from my foster-cousin – Chinese New Year delicacies that my mum used to make together with her mum (my maternal grandma, that is) and her sisters (my aunties).

Then, when I arrived in KL, Mandy gave me one big plastic container of “love letters” – kuih kapek/kapit…or what we call kuih sepit in Sarawak. They were made by her mum and were paper thin and so very crispy and absolutely yummy. Unfortunately, I had finished all of them before I realised that I did not take any photograph of them.

And during the meet-up with my blogger-friend, Annie-Q on the 1st day of Chinese New Year, she gave me these…

CNY gifts 5

I have not tried all of them yet so far. One thing at a time! LOL!!!

Then, while I was stranded in KL, I received a call from somebody at the POSLAJU office in Sibu and the guy told me that there was something for me via special delivery – biscuits, but I was not at home at the time. I told him that I would collect them once I got back and the office reopened after the long Chinese New Year holidays.

I did that on the 4th day of Chinese New Year and it was actually from ah^kam_koko’. A friend of his was making cookies for sale and he was so kind as to buy from her and get her to send to me – all the way from Bukit Jalil…

Thanks to everybody for your kind thoughts and generous gifts…and to Merryn and Clare and those who took the trouble to send me Chinese New Year greeting cards, and not forgetting those of you who phoned, sent me smses or greeted me on in my blog and on Facebook…and also those who dropped by my place when I managed to get back from KL, thanks a lot to all of you too! With so many wishing me well, I bet it’s gonna be a great Tiger Year…

    But I can still complain that I have not received anything from you yet! LOL!!! πŸ˜‰

  2. So u didn’t get my kuih tarts! LOL!

    Nope…maybe the wallaby that was delivering it drowned while swimming in the sea? Btw, does a wallaby swim? Hahahahaha!!!!

  3. well, since Stella’s kuih tarts were make-believe, even if a wallaby doesn’t swim, you can make-believe that it does. Haha!

    Ya…can imagine that they fly! Hahahahaha!!! Too bad I finished the nyonya jam tarts missus bought in KL…or I could post the photo too…and let her drool! I think I put it up on Facebook. LOL!!!

  4. Yes, Cleff.. now STP no excuse to *sulk, sulk* anymore… see, so many gifts, just for CNY alone.. my my!! maybe it is our turn to be *green*, Cleff… hahahaha..

    1. No la… I cannot turn green liao la, Claire…i got so many good friends… these days they also keep wanna feed me… especially a certain angel… I wanna pengsan cuz too overwhelmed liao!

      You also received lots of stuff from blogger friends mah!!! So cannot complain already…

      1. Yes… blessed wif so many food in my tummy… lol… blessed with good companions as well… what else can I ask for? LOL… This is good enuff for me… in fact, it’s better than good!

        And the Chinese believe that to have food is to have luck or good fortune! So aren’t we all so fortunate? Count our blessings! πŸ˜‰

  5. Goodness! And so not fair! So many gifts . I wanna eat your chocolate chips. :p

    Choc chips also habis liao! Hahahaha!!! Wait for another post later in the week. Maybe you’ll find something else that you like! LOL!!!

  6. Harrods, homemade cookies all the way from KL and wine. Nice! *sulk sulk* Haha!

    Hahahaha….next year, I’ll get something for you! *pats on the head… πŸ˜€

  7. I didn’t get anything for CNY except lucky draw items from the office hampers. I wouldn’t mind the wine. πŸ˜‰

    See! You didn’t drop by my place. Lots of wine, whisky etc…and nobody drinks! Ummm…my missus drinks a bit but plenty more where they came from! Now you know where to go next year, eh? Hahahahaha!!!

  8. Wa… cikgu! i memang memang jelos lo… got so many cookies and gifts…… now you are famous lo……….take care

    Nobody gave you anything kah? Aiyor…so kesian! Muahahahahaha!!!! Hope you and your family had a great new year, and you take care too!

  9. The biscuit from Annie Q very nice lah! πŸ˜€

    Yes, everyone said so. Loved the butter fragrance…but habis liao! That day, busy marking…mouth also busy! Hahahahaha!!!!

    1. Yeah… I was about to say same thing too leh, Kathy. Never hancur, damn good wan!

      Dunno how much it cost to send…but it was in one big box with lots and lots of newspapers. I think the delivery charges more for those than for the cookies!

  10. Waoo….gifts…u have been socializing really well..

    I guess I am social…and friendly…and easy to get along with! Ummm…maybe sometimes a bit intimidating, ask Raymond! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

    1. Haha…the students are singing praise about u. No hard feeling though…I used to think u were pretty sarcastic. Those were the days, u know when every teenage least me..used to think that damn this teacher is just looking to get me into trouble.

      But i guess as we grow older and a little wiser as well..and that’s when we started to use our brain, we then realize that nobody is getting anybody into just student like me who get a little stubborn.

      Of course! I always told them – if they were good, I would be even better…but if they were bad, they would not like me at all. I guess you belong to the latter! Hehehehehehe!!! Did I teach you? I really don’t remember! LOL!!! I think I’ll be touching a bit on this teacher-student thingy in my next post…

  11. Wow wow wow….see, i told you, you’re a nice and friendly person and loved by so so many people. See now we all envy you, everyone give you cookies and gifts, so don’t ‘sulk sulk” anymore. hahahha, now it’s our turn to *sulk sulk sulk*.

    Glad you like the corn flakes cookies. πŸ™‚ Clare tried it too?

    Hahahahaha!!! I should have bought you something – went makan empty handed. Never mind…wait till you come to Sibu. Ya…Clare was home in Sibu for CNY and dropped by my house, 2nd day/night…and she got to sample it.

  12. I want to try pic#2 ehhh.. looks delicious ehh πŸ˜‰

    That’s almond biscotti…some kind of thinly- sliced bread with almonds. Fragrant but not to be taken with other stronger-tasting and sweet cookies – will drown out the nice fragrance.

  13. ur life r full of blessing…nvr scared get starved… πŸ˜‰

    That was exactly someone told me a long time ago when I was young – telling my fortune from my face. He said I would not need to worry that I had nothing to eat… Looks like it’s quite true after all, eh? LOL!!! πŸ™‚

  14. Damn… I keep tink about the Almond Biscotti… will go well wif tea… =.=

    Come! Come on over…and we’ll have tea and the almond biscotti together… Wakakakaka!!!!

    1. Eeeeee! Cikgu is at it again! LOL… luring me to Sibu!!!

      Well, Annie’s coming in April…and I hear MAS is offering cheap tickets starting March 7th. Do log in to check… You may get some very good deals.

  15. wah so lucky! Someone is eating Harrods biscuits! such a luxury!!!

    Expensive, are they? I haven’t tried yet…so I wouldn’t know if they’re any good. Still got lots of CNY cookies…

  16. ha ha ha, kuih kereta, kuih gunting again……next year I will bake kuih beca….ROFL!

    Kuih submarine would be easy to make! Can’t dive ones…like Malaysia’s! Hahahahahaha!!!
