  8. Delicious egg tarts, I'd not try any recipes using water instead of milk. BTW, you can add 1/2 tsp of custard powder to the egg mixture then sieve it.

  11. Sonia, I'm not so lucky. I have to travel far to get the frozen pastry. So, I normally make my own instead. Btw, I didn't get to eat any dim sum when I was there in Klang. My brother said the dim sum there wasn't good at all. He will take me for some nice one in my future trip.
    Goodnight & sweetdream,
