Di Bawoh Rang Ikang Kering
Random Ramblings of A Retired Retainer


Friday, February 16, 2007

It is the season to joli again. From the jams at the various malls in KL this week, Malaysians are all out to be jolly and they were not shy to spend. After all, you get more joy shopping than watching your money grow lethargically at the rate the banks are offering now.

I get the most Vitamin C during the Chinese New Year season. Those free
kams (oranges) are always irresistible during cigarette -breaks. I also like the kuih bakul although I prefer to take them after Chap Goh Meh when they are suitably dried then sliced and dipped in egg and then fried. My mother's fried kuih bakul were the best. Crisp on the outside and tender inside. How did she get the kuih bakul? We had a number of Chinese neighbours. Even in Merang.

To all the readers of this blog, if you are celebrating the Lunar New Year, Prosperity to you. If you have a noisy mother in-law, resist the urge to serve her
kuih bakul (the sticky kind) everyday. If you drive, drive carefully. The person you hit might be a blogger.
