For 16 years of my life.. every August.. come what may.. dad would take his three daughters to go and watch fireworks.. sometimes i felt that its like a ritual thingy in our family... dad is that sort who loves to take his daughters to watch this kinda of stuff.. be it fireworks.. or even watch thaipusam.. he will take us to go and watch floats during national day.. he wud take us to go and watch the national day parade at the National Stadium and bec dad used to work with SSC.. it was easy for us to get entry ticket..
Now that obtaining tickets for the NDP have changed to a balloting system we have not watched it in a long time. Not that we dont ballot, but we just cant get tickets! So what we normally do now is to park our car on top of Peninsula Plaza and watch the fireworks there..
Anyway...I wish i cud stay longer and talk abt our independence day but i guess thats not gonna happen since we are abt to go to the hospital to visit my grandmama again.. I guess this year my plan to take photos of fireworks will hv to wait till next year..
450g sugar (I used 420g)
1 tsp double acting baking powder
300 cc of water / dilute milk / coconut milk (I used milk)
1 tbsp emulsifier
1 tsp banana essence
1 tsp cocopandan paste (I added)
1 tsp black forest paste (I added)
Beat all ingredients 10 minutes, pour in the mold that has been coated paper, and steam for 10 minutes
Mix the flour, baking powder, double acting (BPDA), sieve, set aside.
Whisk sugar, eggs and emulsifier until thick, add the flour and milk alternately and continue to whisk till well combined.. add in banana essence and stir well.
Divide batter into two and add whatever paste u like.. Pipe into molds, steam for 10 minutes.
I was thinking since we are celebrating our National Day today.. I shud stick to the red and white theme.. :o))
