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!

  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!!!!

    I didn't guess apom coz the ones sold here are just folded once. I prefer the older (thicker) version with lots of groundnuts. YUMZ!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

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
