Melt in Your Mouth Pineapple Tarts at Cousin C’s Birthday Party

My aunt made the best ever pineapple tarts from scratch and they were gone in seconds. The pineapple jam filling was made from real pineapple and not the store-bought jam. The buttery pastry was crumbly and melted in your mouth.

Our party had a Chinese New Year theme.

We had early Lo Hei. Lo Hei is the action of tossing the Yu Sheng which the higher you toss the better the fortune. We did not add any raw fish or salmon and had a vegetarian version.

Before the tossing:

We had Fortune Cookies too.  P joked that the fortunes sounded a tad cynical, especially the one I got.

The lovely Strawberry shortcake birthday cake, which the birthday girl bought herself.

P did a great job BBQing. I didn’t get a good picture, but the prawns and chicken were so good.

We played the Singapore version of Pictonary which is a great way of getting to know Singapore. I had no idea there was such a place as the Raffles Lighthouse. You can read more at The Wild Shores of Singapore. Makes me want to explore what they call the Southernmost point of Singapore, but it may be out of bounds unless you have special permission according to this article at the National Library Board.

      I am sure the ones you whip up will be really good 🙂 I am just hopeless in the kitchen although I wish I had the awesome baking skills of my aunt and yourself. I think both of you were just born to bake, although it’s not your main vocation. Some skills are genetic.

        I think you have to just try! I did it last year. As long as you follow the recipe, you won’t go wrong….unless you failed chemistry classes??? 😉

        i think it has to do with me being lazy and impatient…I think besides skills….bakers have loads of patience. If I ever try out something in the kitchen I will post it stage by stage..hehehe

        I actually liked chemistry loads more than physics for sure
