The satay man in Kuala Lumpur (KL). All that satay just waiting to be grilled.
KL satay. This came with only a little bowl of satay (peanut) sauce. Back in the old days when I lived in Klang, you would get a big bowl! The ketupat (the cubes of rice in the foreground) also used to come wrapped up in coconut palm leaves...those were the days!
Wantan mee complete with pickled green chillis. Hubs loves this!
Ice kacang, one of my favourite desserts (seems like I'm saying "favourite" a lot here!). I was disappointed with this ice kacang. It was nothing like the ice kacang of my childhood which was full of red beans and attap chee, topped with shaved ice and completely drenched in condensed milk and syrup. This version was light on the condensed milk and syrup, had no attap chee and had a high ice to bean ratio!
Comfort food snacks from my childhood: assamboi (dried plum things) and picked green mangoes. The assamboi are the dried up shrivelled looking things. They're not pretty but I find them very more-ish!
I don’t know what these little biscuits are called but when I was a little girl, I loved them and my mum used to buy them all the time! I pigged out on them when I was in KL and then bounced around from all the sugar in the colourful toppings!
And last but not least, tropical fruits! Pure heaven!
and my personal favourite, mangosteen!
I'm giving myself all these cravings by posting these photos! ;-)
