On Sunday, we celebrated mom’s 62nd birthday at home by having popiah, a form of fresh spring rolls eaten by the Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore. Present were my family, my aunties and uncles, and cousins and we all gathered around the table to hand-assemble our rolls. It’s communal and fun – getting everyone involved into the process of the meal is a very bonding experience.
The last time we did a popiah session was the Mid-Autumn Festival of 2006 at my parents’ old house. If you wanna see how one makes a popiah, there’s also a short clip which I’d shot of mom making one.
