Vietnamese Bah Chang

It is lunch time now, I didn't go out for my food, instead I spent my time poring over the pictures I have taken during my one month vacation... and thanks to yours truly here, I "tortured" myself by putting up these....

Guess what this is... 
It only cost $2.50...
And worth every cent of it!
Yes, this is Vietnamese Ba-wan. (sticky rice dumpling)
something like our local Bah Chang..
Theirs are squarish.. ours are tetrahedron in shape...
The ingredients are pretty much the same...
Yellow beans with chunks of meat... 
and how do they taste??
er... er... 
I guess I have to go there one more time ...
and let you know How they taste like...
hopefully in 2014... 
*big grin*


  1. Should taste pretty ok...but I think our Cantonese pillow-zhang would be more to our taste - something like lor mai kai.

  2. oh never know Vietnamese have bah chang also.

  3. I call that pillow zhang. Still much much prefer our very own nyonya bak chang.Yummy!!!Yummy!!!....

  4. I always like this type of dumpling. My favourite is this type of white colour with lots of beans one. I could get this type of dumpling at Ipoh, outside Fu San Dim Sum on Sunday. It was sold at RM7 each.

  6. Gosh so cheap! Looks like our Cantonese "cham thau" (pillow) bakchang.

  7. so I can get this in Vietnam. I am going next yr,ehheheheh

  8. I like bah chang...I don't know that vietnam have bah chang. I always thought that this is a chinese food.

  9. stp: lor mai kai is more stickier than bah chang..maybe the latter doesnt have chicken in it. :)

    WK: KATHHHHHHY!!!!!!!!!!!

    irene: i havent really try the nyonya ones..

    yan: that is Central.. yes, famous since those days..but i seldom buy from there... I like those from Penang... pillow ones..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
