Budding chef in the making

Yiu Yiu loves ondeh-ondeh, introduced to her by babysitter's sister. The kind lady will sometimes go out of her way just to buy some ondeh-ondeh for her.

MIL is down helping me with my confinement and she's also a good cook, bakes well and makes really nice local kuih. Hubby told her that Yiu Yiu loves ondeh-ondeh and asked her to make some for Yiu Yiu and being the doting grandmother, she obviously obliges.

Here's my excited little girl helping her mah-mah to make the ondeh-ondeh:

Getting instructions from the master



Close-up shot of her little hands forming the perfect circle



Getting quite good at rolling the dough


Aarrgghh!! The gula melaka is falling out

The proud little girl with her tray of ondeh-ondeh, ready to be boiled


Enjoying the fruits of her labour


She's so proud of her feat that she couldn't stop telling everyone that SHE made the ondeh-ondeh. Looks like I've a budding chef in the making.

WK - she'll probably forget to mention it unless you ask her.

Ley Mei - MIL just asked her to roll the dough. She already took care of the messy part of mixing the dough before getting her involved :-)

Angeleyes - yeah, hope she'll take an interest in helping around the kitchen.

Cynthia - she loves to pose for the camera :-)

Kittycat - grandparents are such a blessing, aren't they?
