I woke up with the worst ever hangover today. The toilet was probably my best friend up till about noon time. Too much partying at Zeta is not a good thing when age is catching up with you.
Balak suggested we go try the supposedly oh so talked about Meng Kee melt-in-your-mouth char siew (叉烧）on Jalan Alor. But I wanted 牛记Beef Ball Noodles. Aiyah, but by looking at his size, which do u think we opted for?
Halfway thru the ‘not so melt in your mouth charsiew’ lunch, I spotted an uncle selling 麦芽糖 & 叮叮糖 (Traditional Chinese Sweets pronounced ‘mai ya tang’ and ‘ding ding tang’) just outside. A favourite of mine during childhood days. Peddlers selling such sweets are a rare finding nowadays.
In my excitement, I forgot to take pictures of the uncle’s stall. His 麦芽糖 & 叮叮唐 are made from genuine malt sugar and it tastes so good, he’s already secured one more loyal customer.
RM1 a stick, but really melts in your mouth!!! Deeelicious
My half eaten malt sugar candy. Doesn’t look too appealing from the pictures, but trust me they are to die-for if you have a sweet tooth.
Ting ting candies
Ha ha and miraculously, the hang over was gone right after my lunch and dessert!
