A fusion of tropical lychee with western sparkling water (soda water) is a delightful thirst quencher, especially on warm sunny days. The fresh mint added flavour and aroma to the drink.

18th Drink: Asam Boi Grass Jelly Drink [95] [107.5%] [Score: 8.5]
Grass jelly drink by itself is one of the best thirst quenchers on warm sunny days. With the accompaniment of Asam Boi, a type of dried preserved plum, gives the drink a superb combination of sweetness, saltiness, and sourness making it a perfect thirst quencher.

16th Dessert: Kuih Tako Pandan (Pandan Coconut Jelly Dessert) [85] [100.9%] [Score: 8.0]

Insert in image is the turnip I used as the filling in the bottom pandan jelly layer. I don’t know if it is the right turnip. Nyonya Cooking says to use turnip (sengkuang) or water chestnut. I went to the supermarket this morning and found this turnip. It doesn’t look like a sengkuang or water chestnut :(

6th Snacks: Sweet Potato Donuts (Kuih Keria) (Remake 1) [Score: 9.3]

In this remake, there was an improvement of 0.5, i.e. from 8.8 to 9.3. The sugar coating is finer (than previously made), but not fine enough!

Taste wise this is a superb recipe (including tips and all). The score was 9.0 because texturally (the top layer and the bottom layer) it wasn’t properly done yet.

BTW, I came across “The Next Stage... [Nyonya Cooking]” recorded on Apr 20, 2018

What about this so called membership? I click on it and Oops! came out. Also, there was this one time I stumbled on a Nyonya Cooking website, I clicked and a fox floating in space came out!

Nyonya Cooking was brilliantly conceived and managed. It is a treasure trove of cooking recipes complete with videos, written instructions, tips, and all; making cooking the recipes nearly foolproof.  The failure in getting the right outcome lies on the skill of the cooker, not the recipe.

33rd Main: Pad Thai (Remake 1) [Score: 8.3]
Cuisine: Thai
Dish Type: Main

This Pad Thai dish is a remake of the dish I made on the 27 Oct 2019 (Tue). Even though:
1.	I have reduced the soaking time (in boiling water) by 2 minutes, the rice noodles were still soft.
2.	I have also increased the Pad Thai sauce twice the amount I previously used.
3.	In addition, I’ve also seasoned the prawns, added more beansprout and chives into the dish, and added chilli flakes into the garnish.

The score merely increased from 7.8 to 8.3. I’m suspecting two reasons:
1.	Valcom Authentic Thai Pad Thai Paste is not the right Pad Thai paste for the liking, or
2.	I didn’t stir-fry the rice noodles under high heat long enough.

Any comments?
