Meet Pohpiah's sister... Pie-tee

Hi. I’d like you to meet a friend of mine. Her name is Pie-tee and she’s a sister of Pohpiah. She’s prettier than her sister don’t you think so?

It’s amazing how both sisters being brought up in the same Nonya family and made out of the same ingredients can have two different personalities. Anyway, I think Pie-tee has a better fashion sense than her sister.

I prefer Pie-tee’s delicate crispy skirt to her sister’s crunchy sarong outfit. Pie-tee is the feminine type. She loves to make herself pretty all the time. You can tell by the way she decorates herself with bits of crab, omelette, tofu, fried shallots and chili sauce…

But don’t get me wrong here. I’m not putting Pohpiah down. She’s pretty too. She’s got her own beauty, her own style and she’s an athlete. You should see the way she swims in hot oil. It’s really impressive…

Between the two sisters, both are great and it is hard to say which is better. It’s a matter of personal taste actually…

Pie-tee's wardrobe of delicate crispy skirts made out of moulded
fried batter which takes a lot of skill to make...

Gee, pai-tee's skirts look so delicate and nice. Yeah, it must take a lot of skills to make them.

Bachan! Youkoso!
This is how Pai-tee's skirt is made. The iron mould is heated in oil, then dipped carefully in batter and then back into the oil again. The batter gets cooked and slides out of the mold... and you have a pleated flair skirt just like a japanese school girl's uniform ; ).

Hi greenapple,

I'm glad you like my post. You have a great site as well!

I hadn't really tried making pie-tee before. I'm thinking of buying a mold to try out. Would you like me to get you one?
