A good actor or actress can't do good acting on his or her own. They need good allies to carry out the task. Why am I writing about about acting? Am I into acting now? Read on......
Last Friday, I had the chance to meet one of the blogger, let's just name her MrsJ. Met her when she attended a class at Lea Oven. I knew she's going to join the class and had planned ahead with Lea and the rest of her team. Told them not to call me MamaFaMi when MrsJ is around, but address me as somebody else. When I reached her premise, I brought along some steamed muffins but I didn't bring it inside the class. Instead, I asked Lea's shop assistant to bring the container in, after 10 minutes with a message saying...mamafami just dropped off the cakes. She's in a hurry as she has to rush home to settle a few chores. After passing the 'dialogue' to the girl, I innocently and politely knocked on the class door. The way Lea had to control herself from laughing... you have my sympathy Lea dear. Hahaha.... But I guess I acted really well. Everybody was actually smiling here and there when the thought tickles them, but I maintained with my character. The soft spoken and cool lady. MrsJ didn't suspect a thing. And Lea carried her role pretty well. After 10 minutes, in came the muffins with the message from MamaFaMi. And yes, MrsJ starts talking about MamaFami, with me by her side, just to hear the story. Hahahaha....
Finally Lea signaled to me, asking me to reveal myself as she can't take 'the torture' anymore. When I gave her a green light signal, Lea asked MrsJ if she recognised MamaFaMi's voice if she hears it and MrsJ said yes. Then asked again, does this lady's (me) voice sound like MamaFaMi? And MrsJ said No because MamaFaMi does not have a 'kepit' voice! HAHAHAHA....am I that loud? Oh gosh, this is embarrassing!!!! When Lea asked MrsJ to call MamaFaMi, and the phone in my pocket starts ringing... oh my goodness, how MrsJ kept beating me with all her heart! Hahaha... Sorry MrsJ. I didn't mean to pull a prank on you. It's just that I want to introduce myself in the most 'stylish' way that you will never forget me. Hahaha... You are such a sport MrsJ. I love your friendliness! To Lea and the team....kudos to all of you for a job well carried out!!!! Thank you!~ Big round applause to all..... *clap* *clap* *clap*
Okay enough excitement for one day....Now let's move on to the recipe to share. I had tried steaming this muffin the day I went 'acting' at Lea's place. Got the recipe from Mak Lang Azie, but I've changed the recipe slightly just to give more colors to it, and with Mak Lang's consent that is.
