Home-made abacus seed dinner

Our lovely Audrey invited us over to her place for dinner. She said she had something special for us. Something very Hakka. Hm, being Hakka myself, I was curious. What will we be served, I wondered...

Imagine my salivating awe when I saw the table set up...


... with these little babies!:


Yup, these are what we call abacus seeds, a traditional Hakka dish made from the main ingredient of yam.


I think it is rather obvious where the name derived from. Too bad I could not do much to the lighting, as it was a cool purple shade. Of course, no Chinese dinner is complete without soup!


Audrey also painstakingly made this:


It was funny how before she made it, she rang us up to ask us if we ate spring onion... haha...


Dessert was something we bought from the Korean grocers down the road, as we thought it would not be nice to turn up empty-handed. It is called geggi cake, which we were not intending to eat due to how stuffed we were but after having looked at the expiry date (the next day), we had no choice... haha!
