Selamat Hari Raya

I didn't really have a very good night sleep last night. I encountered some breathing problem. It has been ages since I last had an asthma attack so I don't really know whether I had one last night. All I know was that I was grasping for air and it feels that my lungs were collapsing. A frightening experience and this reminded me to get a brand new inhaler.

Thankfully, it is a public holiday and we are able to sleep longer.

The weather is really nice today. Cloudy, breezy and I felt lazy but I wanted to do something. A blog post and a recipe that I read last morning and I know I just had to do it.

Yes, it was from Florence's blog. She made Dou Sha Shao Bing and I knew I had to make that because it was something that I will always picked up when I visit Hong Kong.

Since I can't bring it home as it tasted much better when freshly eaten so I did a batch this morning for my hubby to try.

It is such an easy recipe that you can churned out in no time. Happy to know that hubby thinks it nice as well.

Thanks Florence, definitely brought back some fond memories of my last holiday.

  1. Hi Edith, probably due to the stress that you have. Try to relax yourself and do take care.

    The sho bing looks so yummy, a good food definitely can relax our mind :).

    Take care and have a nice long weekend!

  4. Hey, Edith! Hope you're feeling better. It's a long weekend here. I hope you can catch up with more rest. Don't overwork yourself.

    Surprisingly, I've been seeing this in many corners of KL. My area likes this treat particularly. Been seeing them at the neighborhood's pasar malam. I've also bookmarked this. Will only try the recipe when the right time comes. Definitely not now. Yours look good!

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

  5. Edith, you know I had heard that grinding good quality ginseng into powder form and drink it with warm water actually helps this problem. It helps your respiratory system and strengthens your heart.
    BTW, I was gonna make this too after seeing Florence's post! You made it so nice...very motivated now, lol! :D

  10. Hi Edith,
    You are not a bad mother. As for your son he is growing up, he is at the stage of trying to see how far he can go. It's good that you didn't let him have his way. This show him that who is still the one who have the say. They will be better when they grow older. You have to keep cool and don't loose your temper because when one is angry one tends to say something one regrets later. They are not called children for nothing. I know sometime it makes us very frustrated. All the best.

    Kind Regards.

  11. Aimei, my weekend was relaxing but coz I am so hyperactive, I become bored.

    BL, I seriously prayed so. Make that shaobing coz it is so easy to do.

    Thanks Pei Lin, I am feeling better. I don't have much chance to visit pasar malam so not too sure whether this is avail here though.

    HBS, grinding ginging works? Wait I cannot sleep how? hahaha

    Thanks Mr Lonely for dropping by.

    SSoL, have fun in your posting.

    ZY, try it. Very easy leh.

    Hearty Bake, you are right about pairing it with tea. Love it.

    Airen Chan, I am trying my best now to let go. Definitely not easy but I only have one life and I needed it for my little girl. :)

  13. You can if you want to. As long as you can wrap them nicely into the dough and flatten it without spilling it, I believe any fillings to your fancy is okay.
