phuong,
it's the 21st century...there's no such thing as a guy thing or girl thing ;). Unlike cooking, there is no "recipe" to flower arranging. It's one of those things you just do...relying on your eye to determine where to place the flowers.

lily, lance,
thanks for stopping by…yup I sure am enjoying myself. :)

anonymous,
there is no recipe for a wedding cake because it’s just like any other cake. Think about it…besides “looks”, what’s the difference between a wedding cake and a birthday cake? Not much, they’re both cakes with filling and icing. Thus, to make a wedding cake just bake a bunch of cakes and kind of cake you want and arrange into a wedding cake.

Carmenita,
Do you mean to ask for xôi vò sầu riêng? There is no such thing as just xôi sâu riêng. Anyways…there are other recipes and request I haven’t posted yet…it’ll take a while before the recipe goes up.

Oh, i really mean Xoi sau rieng, tasted it once only in my childhood. Think it's similar to Xoi gac, just that it has durian taste and is yellow in color =). And i'm happy to wait for watever recipe from u

if it's xoi sau riêng then I don't have the recipe. I've never tasted it before so can't come up with a recipe. Sorry.

Good job on those flower arrangments. I found someone who loves bear grass just as much as me. ;-) Wish I have known you when I still own Johnny's Flowers on the Ave. Really enjoy your blog. Thank you & keep up the great post.

I ate (xoi xau rieng) before but I don't know how to make it, sorry. The real name is (xoi xiem) and I am not sure (xiem) means Thailand. It has sweet rice, eggs, saurieng and cream of coconut.
I think they steam the rice, beat the eggs + durian then steam them. When they serve, it has steam sweet rice, steam eggs + durian on top then cream of coconut. I had this one over 20 years ago so I can hardly remember. Sorry !

Phuong,
based on your description of xoi xiem...you can try to making it by using the filling for banh bao cade (add durian to it) and use it as the "steam egg + durian topping).
