And The Answer Is ....

Thanks for the comments! hahaha.. nice try all of you... and do you know that most of the comments I received, the majority guessed that my girl was eating a fried popiah (fried spring roll) ... but sorry to say, the answer is not popiah or sugar cane ....
The answer is ....
Apom as we locals call it
or Egg Roll in english...

courtesy picture taken from here

Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the ones we were eating... but they are Apom all the same.

There is this mute couple (husband and wife) who makes these in the night market and selling them at three for a ringgit. (USD 30 cents for 3) The usual Apoms are normally folded like the picture above but this couple do theirs by rolling them up... thus they look like spring rolls or fried popiah as many had commented. :)

I decided to give two prizes... they are similiar to each other in a way...

The winners are Becky Jane who answered Egg Roll (she is from US so I guess she does not know we call them Apom over here.. :p

.... And the second prize goes to our local food blogger Lena.... (food blogger has an advantage here!) hahaha....

Thanks to everyone who came and comment... it is fun actually.... will continue to do more guessing posts and also to do more guessing in other blogs like the one I won in STP's post! hahaaaaa... that was a nice surprise!


  1. I din guessed cuz I know I sure wun get it right wan. I sux at guessing. As long as guess oni, sure wrong!

  2. Wonder how many prizes I need to prepare if I let the others guess the food which I fancy? I am very very sure that you will be one of the winners, right?

  16. Oh! So it was apom! Yum!! I love apoms! : D

  17. I guessed it! I looked back at my comment and I said egg roll! I am excited because I never get these guessing games right. I think this is the first one I have ever guessed, and I have never heard of these. And thanks for telling me how much these are in American money, they don't cost much at all! I have never seen something like this, it is made from eggs that are fried and rolled up? Looks like it would be good fast protein when in a hurry or having to eat and drive. This was fun, I love the guessing even though I'm not so good at it, hope you DO have more!!!!

  18. Oh noooooo!!!! I didn't win... Sobssssss!!!!! Hehehehehe....congrats to the winners. I love this crispy apom balik - used to have a stall near my house in the afternoon and night, he'll be at the pasar malam. Very nice!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
