When i try to look back through my blog for what i have posted in year 2012 as i was thinking to make a post on 2012 recap..It was fun to look back all those old posts and be reminded of the many wonderful new recipes i tried. Anyway i have hard time to choose what favourites post to put into this recap post. So this year i decided not to do a recap..Instead i sign off year 2012 with this Chinese Popiah (Crepes with mix vegetables filling) and looking forward to a wonderful 2013 and hoping for many better days.
Thank you for your support given to Nasi Lemak Lover blog, I see you in 2013, hope all of you have a better year ahead.
I like to prepare Popiah especially in any gathering (recently i just prepared this for a bloggers gathering,) ..Every filling assemble on a popiah (crepe) skin, roll it up, like we all gather together, very meaningful..
Here come my own version of Popiah. I did not follow my mom's version, her version is "ham pa lang" version, that means she cooked all ingredients together into one filling, hehehe..Instead I prefer to separate into few fillings and gather together, so we have more fun to roll this popiah!
