Red Bean Dessert (Tong Sui)
The weather is so hot that my husband’s butt can sweat! Hahaha!
With our hot weather these past weeks, it is good to drink some
tong sui (dessert).  Early in the morning, I cooked this dessert
so that my family can scoop it up anytime of the day.
If you want to drink it cold, just place it in the fridge.
Bon Appetit! 🙂

Saw these cook books? 🙂
Yesterday while I was having my vegetarian lunch with my
lovely colleagues, my son called me asking me what kind of cook
book that I want? Told him none cause his question was
so random.  And then suddenly he said that it is ok,
I know what you wanted!  When I reach home after my work,
saw a hard copy cook book “Delia Smith’s Cakes” on top
of the coffee table and my mouth wide open with surprise.
Ask my son “You bought it for Mummy?” “Why?”
His reply “Because I Love Mummy and Yun (his sister)”,
he also bought for her an enrichment book.
What a lovely gift from him for us especially for my collection
of cook books from famous chefs.
Delia Smith was introduced by Zoe for Bake For Happy Kids
and my son saw me loading Delia Smith
website couple of times from my ipad.  How thoughful of him.
Love him very much from Mummy and Sis.
Back to my recipe:


Red Bean 240g (wash a few times)
Screwpine Leaves 6 pieces (wash and clean)
Water 3750 liter


Place the Red Beans and Screwpine Leaves inside a cooking pot.


Pour in all the water into the cooking pot.


Boil for 30 minutes with high fire and then lower to medium fire.
While it was boiling, my whole kitchen smell of screw pines
leaves and red beans.  What a nice smell.  I just love it.


Cook another 1 hour or more or until the red beans have soften.
Pour some caster sugar or sugar cane sugar into the cooking pot.
Check for the sweetness before you turn off the fire.
Let it cool before eating or placing into the fridge if you wanted it cold.
The choice is yours.


I just love to drink red beans dessert.  Don’t you?

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
