Pie Tee & 'Gong Xi Fa Cai ' To All


















Awwww....I thought I will not find this little pie tees/ top hats so near to CNY. Most food stall would be closed on the eve, as many families will be having their reunion dinner at home or at restaurants.  I was so happy when I saw them being sold at food stall in a coffee shop near my place. Staying  here for 2 decades and I didn't know about this stall selling chinese pancakes and  pie tees !!!  How blur can I be ?   I bought two dozens  as our breakfast AppetiZer this morning, the eve of  CNY :)   This is a nyonya kueh and it has a hollow cup crust which is shaped like a hat  ( I think that is the reason why it being called a top hat ) and filled with turnip shreds. Garnishes with some crunchy onions and sesame seeds and eaten with some chilli sauce.  This is a nyonya speciality.  I don't know why it called Pie Tee and what it symbolizes but to me it is like my cup runneth over...Blessings full to the brim !    :p

GONG XI FAT CAI TO ALL 
AND MAY GOD'S BLESSINGS
FILL YOUR CUP TILL YOUR
BLESSINGS RUNNETH OVER !
