Blanched the remaining green veggie (siew bak choy) and drizzled with garlic oil and soy sauce.

Dessert
Chilled herbal jelly for dessert.
This is soothing to the throat, helps to cool down the body heat and has many health benefits.

When we ask the Lord's blessing upon our drinking
from the cup of wine at the Lord's Table, this means,
doesn't it, that all who drink it are sharing
together the blessing of Christ's blood?
And when we break off pieces of the bread
from the load to eat together, this shows that
we are sharing together in the benefits of his body.
(1 Corinthians 10:16, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. I have never heard of this jelly. What is the pretty decorated red item on the plate? Did it come out of a mold?

    1. The red item is a sweet cake. We call it "ang koo kuih". The skin is made from glutinous flour and it has lotus seed or bean paste filling.

    2. Yes, it came out of a mold before steaming.
