The Reds & The Greens


soft and nice...
the red ones are filled with bean paste
the green ones are coconut fillings

They are called Ang-koo-s... is that how it is spelt? These are miniature ang-koo-s which I bought in Eaton, Penang. Each time I go Penang, I will try to get some home, after all, I sure pass by there while driving back using the bridge way...
Who likes to eat angkoos besides Me?

  2. I've never heard of them, Claire--but they look and sound good--especially the coconut. I love anything with coconut in it.

    YUM....

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah... I guess... for most. But it would be special if nobody told me off for giving birth to a bastard. LOL... my son's birth made me swear off ang koo gui... lol...cuz it reminds me of 8por!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Me Me Me Me Me...I love them!! Now claire, you get me craving for them :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. cleffairy: gosh.. what a mean remark.. i feel so sad and sorry to hear about that..
    hope u can delete the bad memories and keep only the good ones..
    dont keep at heart..God will take good care of u and your family..


    barb: next time when u go pg, u can just get them at eaton.. hehheee..

    ReplyDelete
  18. I never delete the bad memories wan... cuz it taught me a lot of important lessons in my life. It made me more aware of those who are truthful and sincere to me and who are not.

    Dun worry, Claire... God will give me justice. I did what my conscience told me, and I feel that's best for me. Well, too bad for them...the 8por one day will have a taste of their own medicine, that I'm sure of. It's not that they are great parents either. Out all day long playing mahjong and gossip around only. *snarl*

    Besides ang koo, you can also chu chu kui or kuih bengkang.
