This week’s theme is on RED.
What would be more appropriate then to introduce our local delicacy?
This is a dessert created by the Hokkiens in Malaysia.
ANG KOO – ANG means RED, KOO means Tortoise.
This bright RED dessert is served during many occasions,
mainly marriages, prayers, birthdays, full month of the birth of a child, etc.
It comes in turtle, round, flat snow pea and apricot shapes.
During the Full Moon (one month old) of a child,
A box of Ang Koo is given to relatives and friends.
The RED round ones symbolize a boy,
The RED apricot shaped ones symbolize a girl.
These beautiful RED desserts are made from glutinous rice
with sweetened mashed green beans, groundnuts or coconut as fillings.


As usual, I would not want to leave out my kitty model.
Here is Jon trying to act as if he is the Santa Claus,
dressing up with a RED Santa hat and hiding himself under a blanket of RED cloth.
