What began as a thoughtful gift, jumpstarted Gladys's journey to learn and sell her own range of kuehs online! Hear her interesting story as she shares her recipes of our favourite kuehs.

My Kueh Story

What started as a daughter’s wish to give a meaningful gift for her mother’s 70th birthday has turned this self-taught cook and bubbly mother of two into a business owner running a successful home-business, Kuehdys Foo, earning mentions on local lifestyle blogs and The Sunday Times.


The mastermind behind it is Gladys Foo, who began her kueh journey by learning how to make ang ku kueh using an aunt’s recipe, wanting to surprise her mother on her birthday.


Join us as she recounts her memories of learning how to make these traditional treats through trials of family recipes and research on cookbooks and food websites. Don’t miss her food demonstration on ang ku kueh, the kueh that started it all! This programme will be concurrently livestream on National Museum of Singapore's Facebook Page.


Price: $7/pax

*each ticket includes light refreshment and bento set comprising of two ang ku kuehs for each participant to take home
