Taiping mali

Posted by Picasa

The brother and I made a trip home and it was sure nice to be back. Here are some pictures of our familiar haunts. The Taiping wet market, night market, cashier market.

You can still get a piece of kuih for 30 cents here. The bottom right photo is of See San, our famous ice kacang stall. It has been years since I attempted their Black Mountain ice kacang. Black because black gula melaka is the syrup of choice and mountain because its packed into this tall pinnacle that if eaten without skill would result in a wet mess all over the table. I made an ex-boyfriend go through a baptism by ice kacang once. He made it. Too bad the relationship didn't.
