  1. I guess this is also another highly anticipated theme. Maybe lots of "lao ban beancurd" coming up. Everyone keep your desserts coming in!!

    1. Thanks SSB for the kick start. And thanks to the posts that are coming in ! Make me drool already. If you have not, do so now and show us your delicious works! :)

  2. hmm... could I just check with you on something? the instructions specify a cooked dessert but cendol, to my recollection doesn't require cooking yeah? Sorry if the question sounded a bit silly...

  3. Hi travellingfoodies, sorry for the confusion, I have corrected my post to cook/non-cook dessert also accepted, just no baked dessert. Hope this clear your doubts. :)

  4. ah so much clearer now! thanks for the clarification!

  5. I missed the dim sum affair in May, this time round I'll make sure i set aside some time to make some asian desserts!

  6. Thanks for hosting this for the month of June! I'm going to make something & share here!

    1. Hi Jessie, My pleasure. Thanks in advance and hope to see it soon. :)

  7. Hi Moon,I'm interested to join the event. Just check with you is nyonya kuih accepted?

    Have a nice day.

    1. Hi Amelia, unfortunately kueh is not accepted for this month's theme. :)

    2. Oh no, I thought kuih is accepted as it didn't mention b4 it will not be considered. Nevermind! Thanks for clarifying this!

    3. Hi Jessie, guessed nonya kueh is more appropriate for the earlier AB theme: AB#12: Traditional kueh (Oct 2011).

    4. Hi Moon, thanks! It's ok. Since it's until 30th June in case I got cook tong sui then I'll join the event.

    5. Hi Moon

      Is kulfi included since it is Asian, it's not a kueh and it's not baked? Or is it excluded since it's an ice-cream?



    6. Hi Susan, Kulfi is a kind of ice cream, so it's not accepted.

  8. do you accept barley drink for this month's theme?

    1. Hi Yummy Bakes, will consider this a drink, maybe you can use barley to cook tang sui soon?

  9. hi foodplayground!im new to this...i just want to know is this a competition?is there a prize??:))

    1. Ha! It's not a competition. just a monthly theme to bring food bloggers together to share their work and recipes. Hence, Whether there are prizes or not will depends on individual host. for this round, guess it is too late to announce that I have prizes to give? But if prizes can encourage more entries, why not? Ha! Will think of something to give when I host for AB #30 during the month of April 2013. Stay tune and Let me know your thought :)

  10. Hi! Just wna check if Ginger tea( as soup base for tangyuan) is accepted?
