Kuih Bingka Ubi

I have been so busy lately that at night, I dream of work, at work, I obsess and think about the other million things that I need to do that have nothing to do with work, then I go home, and I do none of the million things that I’m supposed to be doing. What am I doing?! Nothing obviously.

And yet I still find time to eat a lot, cook,bake and test out new recipes. Sigh, I am not good at prioritising.

A great big pot of bak kut teh means not much cooking for the rest of the week.


Haven’t featured any lunch bentos for a while. Stir-fried lemongrass chicken with sambal okra and steamed rice.

A new Malaysian kuih recipe and possibly the easiest one yet! Kuih binga ubi aka baked tapioca cake is fragrant, buttery and moist. Only problem is, my kuih turned out a bit too soft, I knew immediately that it was because I used frozen cassava/tapioca which when grated turned out really watery, so note to self, squeeze out every inch of water from grated tapioca.

It was so easy to make this cake, I might even sell it at my stall in future! I’m putting in my registration forms this week, quick, start spreading the word, Daitaoha’s selling food at UWA Spring Feast and Curtin Pasar Malam! I still haven’t decided on the final products yet, but have roped in a few guinea pigs to do some taste testing, Jo and HC definitely, and perhaps Jason and Wendy? Anyone interested?

It’s a big day, we’ve got a new female PM!

    The bento looks good! Lunch is provided for me this week leh, but only baguette. It’s huge though, and we also get a pack of crisps, slice of cake and one hot snack. But not that nice lah.

    I’m not fond of tapioca cake leh but yah I think can sell!
