农历新年小吃 ~ Chinese New Year Snacks

再过几天就是农历新年咯... Photobucket
In a few days more we will be celebrating CNY...
here are two types of special snacks we came across this year

而这个是不同的 ~
Kuih Kapit with Meat Floss:
This is from my boss...
according to him this is home made and from Penang
Kuih Kapit a.k.a. crispy egg roll or love letters are usually fold into triangular shape but this is different
they look like this in the tin ~

我们都很喜欢吃 Photobucket
See the inside... meat loss !!
All of us love this Photobucket

我们到他们位于 bandar Puteri Puchong 的新家去作客时拿回来的
很特别也很好吃 ~
Deep Fried Lotus Root Crackers:
This is from Boeys...
We visited their new house in Bandar Puteri Puchong and came back with this
first time we tried this lotus root crackers
the lotus root is very thinly sliced and deep fried ~ very delicious Photobucket

I am very tempted to make lotus chips this year. Any salt inside? The egg roll with meat floss pretty new here but in Macau, i see it everywhere. But egg roll type instead of love letter type.

Your Chinese New Year Snack -
Love Letters--is quite the same as Fortune Cookies in the U.S. and Thai Traditional Dessert ........


Histoy of Food....

squall :
新年快乐 ~ ^_^

Jun :
hahaha.... we still have the triangle ones, this is the add-on ~ ^_^

aim :
tks so much for your support ~ ^_^

i have frens who bring their dogs out for meal, but usually is an open area which is also a halal place... as we have to be sensitive to other races in our country ^_^

there was once we went to a Japanese restaurant, they cant accommodate us inside the restuarant but do not mind to arrange a table for us outside the restaurant at the smoking area, which we find that pretty cool ~ ^_^

"Joe" who is constantly craving :
i find it more tasty than nga-ku, maybe had been having that for years and got tire of it d ~ :p

冬凡 :
也比较特别啊... ^_^
