Once again, I missed Tuesday. This week, let me feature those colourful sweet stuffs that make dessert pretty and nice.
The attap chee which is like the British gem biscuits but made locally and topped with coloured sugar. BTW, does anyone of you remember the Gems little biscuits from Britain?
Cute little munchkins from Dunkin Donuts. Damn, we don’t have Dunkin Donuts right here. Someone send me some, please.
Pengat – available once a year on 15th day of Chinese New Year. This, I repeat, is not the same as bubur cha cha. Only Penang people make pengat like this, I think.
Gummy sweets – made locally.
This horrijible colourful kuehs from Melaka. So weird lah, the colour.
Heh, this is how kueh colours should look like. This batch is what my neighbour gives to my housekeeper, every week. They have these edges and odd pieces of the kuehs which did not make it to the market. Still edible but not regular, just like Reject Shop stuffs. BTW, I have been to several states in Malaysia and notice that their kuehs colours are often not as pretty and soothing as those we found in Penang. Usually, the other states tend to colour theirs too gaudy. Don’t flame me but do watch out and tell me if you notice that as well?
