MSF gave me this bread last night. She said she got it for free from the boss of the place. According to her, the place that made this bread was a rundown looking place, managed by an old uncle. It was very famous in Seremban too. So the glutton me just wanted to have it despite my strict diet doesn’t allow me to have yeast.

I was expecting some cream with undissolved sugar in it, like most filling breads I’ve had. Instead this was filled with butter, a little sweetened. It needs some time to get used to, but I did managed. I wouldn’t say that it’s very nice, just acceptable.

The box of kaya puff that MSF bought for us was left with 3 pieces in it. The other box of baked buns were all gone, thanks to HL’s big appetite (and tummy that contains them). So I can only have it this morning as breakfast because I was very full from my dinner last night.

The puffs looked nice and appetizing. But the kaya wasn’t that nice. There were even air pocket inside the puff. I don’t like having air pocket in my puff. I felt cheated by the looks of it, thinking that the puffy puff would’ve had its kaya filled up fully.

I’ve always wanted to bring PCL here to try out the benta kaya since my previous visit. I’ve even asked her if she likes to eat benta kaya and she said yes. Today, I finally remembered to bring her here as I’ve forgotten to for the past few weeks.

Even before we were given the menu, we were offered some cakes (kuih) on a tray. I thought they were so kind to let people from outside to come in and sell cakes. Later only I found out that these items were actually listed on the menu. Just that they were already nicely packed and ready to be taken away. Me being a sucker for muachi, I just couldn’t resist getting it. Usually I’d go and get it, but this time it was offered right smack on my face, so …

The tray cake actually tasted not bad. But it could be better. I’ve had worse from somewhere else at a random location sold by random people. At least you can come back here for more if you like it. The muachi was acceptable only. Skin a little too thick. I preferred thinner skin where the crushed sugar peanuts would explodes in your mouth. Besides, the white flour used doesn’t chill my lips and mouth when I eat it. Something is missing from it.

My special drink was indeed really special. I thought it was similar to what I had at 1 Utama last time. The things that are similar were the red coloured liquid and the sago. This cup of drink, it reminded me of having 湯圓 during Winter Solstice. Yes, it tasted like ginger drinks. Did they think that I’d want ginger drink because I bought muachi?

The little homemade dumpling were within PCL’s expectation. She preferred the benta kaya, while what I had in my hometown, it was served with brown sugar. Hence the request for brown sugar. The rojak was pretty good. PCL was practically digging for more fried Chinese crullers in it. But the crunchy stuffs which I thought were Chinese crullers have hints of prawn crackers. So I wasn’t too sure what it was because the size was not like ordinary prawn crackers you’d get from rojak.
