Today is a BIG day for Lin-er, though is not her super BIG day yet. It’s her 21st BIRTHDAY celebration for her super big day on 04 July 2012. Haha. Finally, she is a grown up fine lady with beautiful smile and character. The images of her when she was young still flashes in my mind. We are 10 years old apart, so as a da jie jie, it’s naturally my duty to take care of her since young. Seeing her grow up from a little baby and protecting (but sometimes still bully, haha) her from harm is such an enjoyable journey for her 3 elder sisters. Lin-er, we won’t be there to take care of you all the times, so be safe, be blissful and most importantly, be happy & healthy always!
Here comes your Birthday Chicken Pie! I’ve started preparing this for you since the night before, thus I did not manage to join you and cuzzies for the happening night out. Sacrifice right? Lol. I knew this came as a surprise for you from the expression on your face when you first saw it. I was indeed delighted. I was even more elated when I received numerous amazing comments on the pie. It’s not the look of the pie, but the TASTE! Although I tried my best to put on some deco on it, I think I can still do better, don’t give up Wendy!
This pie is the result of my 2nd try this morning. Luckily I had enough ingredients, else I can't imagine how things will turn out. I guess I am just too excited and hoping to complete the pie without pitfall. But the more I want it this way, the more I could not get the it done in the right way. Haiz.
My initial intention is to bake a big pie with some small pies which serve as a deco to the big pie too. However, after pre-baking the big crust half way, then I realised I've forgotten to prick the crust before baking. That's why the crust wenting popping here and down all because of the air bubble underneath the dough. Things went a little hay wire but fortunately I managed to salvage it, just that I've spent a lot more time than expected. The baking process ended with a PHEW! finally completed and YEAH! :)
