  1. Hi. Can i ask what type of milk do you use and where can i get it? Thanks. (:

  2. Hi, I usually use fresh milk for making cakes, using brands like Magnolia or HL. If fresh milk is not available, I use UHT milk too. You can find them at any supermarkets, convenience stores or provision shops.

  3. Hi
    May I know how much is 40g of milk and 100g of oil in ml? Thks.


  4. Hi, how many eggs is 120g eggs? Also, for the corn oil, it is measured in ml usually, how to measure in grams?

    1. 120g eggs is without shell, it's about 2 eggs, depending on the size of the eggs you bought. You can crack the eggs and weigh them without shell. Oil in grams is same as ml.
