7th August 2013 - Dinner
On our last Iftar of Ramadan 2013, we usually break our fast with Eid dishes. From the top, clock wise: sambal goreng with potato and chicken, chicken sambal, sambal goreng with prawn and meat, and chicken rendang.
The dishes are eaten with ketupat or lepat, a glutinous rice cake cooked in coconut leaves.

From the top, clockwise: Mutton and beef satay, fried Hokkien noodles, oyster omelet and BBQ prawns.
I met the fiance for dinner and we ended up at Lau Pa Sat. We had satay and the BBQ prawns from his Uncle’s stall and ordered the noodles and omelet from some place else.
Not shown are the lemon syrup drinks and the dessert that he bought.
5th August 2013 - Dessert
Poached pear, with cinnamon syrup and plain yogurt
My sister made poached pears for the first time and it was wonderful. The pears weren’t overcooked, soft but not mushy and I loved her cinnamon syrup. I love cinnamon!

In preparation for Eid, it’s a common practice in Singapore to make ketupat, a rice cake cooked in a container weaved from young coconut leaves. It’s also relatively common in Malaysia and Indonesia too.
The coconut leaves are weaved and then 2/3 filled with uncooked rice, before boiling the whole thing for about 2-3 hours. The rice cakes are then cut and served with the dishes made especially for Eid.
2nd August 2013 - Dessert
I was craving doughnuts at my uncle just happened to drop by with doughnuts. He’d even brought the kind of doughtnuts that I love, plain sugared ones with jam fillings.

The week before Eid, I was busy making sweet treats, in between wedding preparations. I made chocolate chip cookies, honey joys and cornflake cookies.
I’d planned to make marble cakes but I didn’t have time to do it. So I only managed to make the treats.
