Nyonya Poh Piah & Celebration

On the 28 of May, we'd a family gathering to celebrate my daughter & niece's birthdays in advance (Mom & dad flew to Bali with my youngest brother's family on the following day)
Lots of cutting and slicing...
My sister-in-law...the capable cook who initiated the gathering at her place.
I'm just a helper...
It's a big portion and we need a strong man to scoop and transfer the cooked ingredients into a pot.
Savoring the poh piah...it's so yummy!
I hope mom and dad can come to KL more often.

The 2 birthday girls surrounded by their beloved cousins.

Hi Yuin Ting, I love the well taken pics here re the family gathering, and the poh piah. I have always loved Nyonya poh piah.
You come from a Nyonya background?
Can't help smiling see the many people in the kitchen....reminds me of the expression, 'too many cooks...', ha ha.

Can see you all having a fabulous time. And I whenever get the opportunity to eat Nyonya poh piah will polish off 6 to 8, no problemos, ha ha.
You keep well and have fun, best regards, Lee.

HI Uncle Lee, I'm not a Nyonya but my beautiful & soft-spoken sister-in-law is. She learned to make the poh piah from her mom (according to her, our "standard" is still far away from her mom's. Her mom will cut and slice every tiny piece to similar size)

I love poh piah too! In fact that's our first "poh piah" gathering...should have more of that in the future.
