In the process of drawing the kueh for a restaurant, Lee Xin Li got fascinated by the plethora of kueh from the various cuisines around South East Asia. For those of you who never heard of Kueh such as me. Kueh is are bite-sized snack or dessert foods commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore as well as Southern China. Kueh can be cakes, cookies, dumplings, pudding, biscuit, or pastries, and are usually made from rice or glutinous rice.
