At the tea party, AWCH members made "kuih dadar" or "crepes" - a famous pastry in Southeast Asia.The “kuih dadar” cake has a light green crust with the cool aroma of pandan leaves, and is filled with the taste of jaggery and coconut. Soft pandan kuih dadar is very similar to European crepes, so it is also considered a crepe of Southeast Asia.
In addition, the group members made yeesang - a traditional New Year dish in Singapore. Yeesang is used as an appetizer to bring good luck and fortune for the new year.
In Chinese, yeesang means “excess, abundant”. The dish includes thinly sliced vegetables, fish with sauce and nuts mixed together.
