Think of me…

I had just had my lunch that day and had gone upstairs to have a nap when I heard a car at our gate. I was already horizontal so I did not bother to get up and see.

I checked my Messenger via Facebook and saw a message from Daisy, an ex-student of mine. She said that she was at the bakery in my neighbourhood when she thought of me so she picked up something for me for Chinese New Year from her, her hubby, also my ex-student and their son, Ian…and their mum, a retired teacher like me – she gave me the mint and oregano that are growing so well in my garden.

When I got up later, I went and had a look…

Louis Bakery

It sure looked like the people at the bakery had started stocking up on cakes and cookies for sale for Chinese New Year…

New Year 2021

Daisy had bought me a prune layer cake…

I have seen those pop-up ads on Facebook advertising the ones from Lavender in KL. My good friend, Mandy, bought me one once, without the prunes, and it was very nice.

I cut two thin slices from both ends and divided them into smaller slices so all of us in the house could try…

Yes, it was very good – moist, not dry and hard and best of all, not sweet. We all loved it but I’m keeping the rest till Chinese New Year. At least, we’ll have cake, pineapple tarts, keropok and acar, come Chinese New Year.

Thank you so so so much, Daisy, and all in the family. That was so very sweet of you! May God bless you all abundantly in this coming Year of the Ox!

LOUIS BAKERY LW.Pattisserie (2.316411, 111.839847) is located along Jalan Ruby in the same block of shops as Kim Tak Co., right next to Ah Kau Cafe at the end of the block to the left.

  1. Aww…so lovely of your former student. 🙂 They do think of you all the time.

    The title “think of me” reminds me of the Phantom of the Opeara. 🙂

    Fuiyoh!!!…You do know your musicals! Not bad! Not bad! LOL!!!

    Yes, I do have some very nice ex-students, not many…but there are a few.

  2. So thoughtful of Daisy. So who collected the prune Kuih lapis from her since you didn’t go to the gate? Did you put this Kuih lapis prunes into the fridge to wait till CNY? If it is made without preservatives, it needs to be stored in fridge else it would go bad.

    Yes, so very sweet of he. She just left it hanging on the gate – contactless delivery and after a while, my missus went out to get it. My neighbour orders home food delivery and I saw the Grab people doing that. They just left everything on the patio and my neighbour would go out and get it after a while.

    Of course I’m keeping it in the fridge. Even our Sarawak kek lapis must be kept chilled. You see those sold at the market here and the pavements in Kuching – never buy those!!! They have enough preservatives in them to embalm a corpse…and the colouring!!! Shocking!!!
    We keep all our cakes in the fridge and I take them out in the early morning to cut and serve. They would have “warmed up” after a while…but if not eaten within two days, I would throw them all away. Wouldn’t be good anymore by the third or fourth day.

  3. This cake reminds me of kek lapis masam manis which is one of my favourite. Wonder whether the taste is the same or not. Guess with pineapple tart, kerokop, acar and cake, it is more than enough for this year quiet CNY. Take cake and stay safe.

    Yes, the kek lapis with sancha! My friend Annie in KL just got one from somebody the other day, saw it on Facebook – her favourite. These days, they make nice patterns with the sancha and they call it sisik ikan. One and the same thing, actually – just looks nicer.

    I don’t know if my missus will make any cookies or not. She will not make any cakes, that’s for sure. She stopped making when the old oven called it a day and her cakes did not turn out so nice with the new one.

  4. Gosh, look at all of those layers. I often wonder if all of the sweets get eaten over festive periods. It’s tradition to bake and gift cookies over Christmas. We don’t eat them but always end up giving away a bunch.

    In the past, I used to take what was left to school, share among all my colleagues and all would be gone in no time at all. This year, we did not make a lot so not much left. I did ask my girl to bring a bit to school to share with her colleagues. All gone now.
