About Me

Flowers make me happy, and seven beautiful blooms in one morning is quite something. I don’t even know the name of these gorgeous flowers.

Name : Ivy

Blog Name: Hungry Caterpillar

Because I read The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle a million times to my daughter, and because I love how the caterpillar ate and ate, and was then transformed into a beautiful butterfly.

Because my daughter’s name starts with C, and she is one the reasons I cook… so she’ll eat well. My nieces’ names start with C too, because my sisters think their names should be linked to my daughter’s.

Lives In : Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I grew up in a family obsessed with food; with mother, aunts and grandmothers intent on feeding us. That’s how they love us, and love us well. And that’s how I love my family and friends too.

    Hi Ivy,

    Love your “the hungry caterpillar” website.

    Now I know why it is named as such. So happened I also like to cook and also my 4 y.o. girl like me not only read to her The Hungry Caterpillar but also at the sametime the book comes with bits and pieces of all the foods that the hungry caterpillar ate and I have to read and ‘demonstrate’ using those pieces and it was great fun.

    By the way, do you have anything on Steamboat especially the sauces?

    Thank you and see you in Cyberspace.

    Cheers, Maggi

    Hi Ivy!

    Not sure if you remember me, (I worked Star Weekender, way too long ago). I found your blog through the feature you did on Zurin (Cherry on a Cake). Small world eh?

    Great blog, enjoyed browsing and will be back.

    Hi Ivy,

    I stumble on yr blog and I just love the way you share with great sense of humor. My late mum and sister were wonderful cooks but I missed the chance to learn from them nyonya cooking. However, I just love to cook for my family especially my nieces and nephew when they are back from Australia.

    Thanks for keeping these wonderful recipes alive.

    I love nyonya food very much. I’m planning to make kuih kosui, but not sure where to get the alkaline water. I live in KL.
