Red red red...everywhere

I saw red everywhere I go, The Spring (like - no other shopping mall in Kuching?? duh!!) and even the road to my friend house have the red tanglung hanging on the street lighting post - nice, of course-lah, it's Chinese New Year!!

I went to my friend house on first day of CNY, whom of course wearing red colour blouse. But unfortunately I didn't get the red ang pow!! Obviously, I'm too old for that hu hu hu. I must say that my friend, Ms. Jong bake a really nice biscuits - small and cute!!! Cantik sangatttt - geramm tengok. After that I got motivated to bake a small and cute biscuits like her, which I didn't cause I decided to bake a red cake instead.

This is what I bake for CNY - Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Chinese believe red is an auspicious colour. I love red colour and I have red sofas at home :-). (Motif sangat nak bagitau...hehehehe)

I don't know why I've been putting-off baking Red Velvet Cake for so-long. Baking this cake is really a pleasure - very moist, nice texture, red red red... ;-). I say, this time I manage to smoothed the frosting - thanks to You Tube - great tips for cake deco etc. But the deco still need improvement (alot!!)- practice practice practice.

And ohh, I went visiting to one Chinese friend's house only. Only one!!! Me so terok ahh...hiasshhh!! Sorry to my other friends, not that I don't want to go, but with my 2 expensive Chanel handbags (my sons lah), can be really challenging! Plus the pouring rain all day, yada yada yada hehehe....Anyway, I wish all Happy Chinese New Year. 
May this year of Rabbit bring you and your loved ones good health, fortune and prosperity.
