Gallimaufry#120

Just a gallimaufry of photos 📸
Heong Peah 362
Nestled in a humble, dilapidated hut on the outskirts of my hometown, lies the unassuming home of the legendary Heong Peah 362. 

Heong Peah in Hokkien literally translates as fragrant biscuit. Essentially, Heong Peah is a pastry with a flaky crust encasing a sticky, sweet filling made from malt and shallots.

Traditional earthen kilns fired by coconut husks are used to bake the biscuits.

These delectable biscuits have garnered a loyal following, both locally and internationally, for their irresistible aroma, delicate texture, and rich flavor.
It's a common sight in the bustling streets of Ipoh to see friends and relatives who have migrated overseas eagerly clutching bags of Heong Peah before they embark on their journey back home. These beloved pastries hold a special place in the hearts of those who have left their hometowns in search of new horizons.

CAT SPOTTING 👀😺

Sushi can definitely hit the spot when you're craving something light yet flavorful. The combination of fresh fish, rice, and vegetables makes it a refreshing choice. Do you have a favorite type of sushi or a go-to sushi roll? Mine is Maguro Sushi (tuna).

A FUNNY TO SHARE

Looks like this jelly found its true calling – as a dental impressionist! Who knew lychees could be so toothsome? 😂

  1. Love those biscuits. I used to buy them in the afternoon for the tea when they were fresh out of that oven. So flaky and aromatic.

  2. Dearest Veronica,
    Those fragrant biscuits are so very special and who would guess from the outside that such delicious food comes from there!
    Yes, special food is important for those that leave...
    Love the happy kitty on the bar stool.
    Hotel de Paris in Dijon no doubt brings back fond memories for you!
    Indeed the lychees in that jelly look toothsome!!!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  9. Haha, those lychees do look like teeth.
    I haven't been able to bring myself to try real sushi made with raw fish, but I do love the California rolls (not sure what they would be called in your neck of the woods). They are made with avocado, cucumber, and lump crab meat (cooked).
    I love the picture of the hut the pastries are made in. It has character.

  10. Puding lychees yang cantik. Aku sangat menyukai puding dengan buah buahan di dalamnya...dan warnanya bening...
    Kucing duduk di kursi kelihatan sangat nyaman. He looks so sleepy...

    Heong Piah seperti bakpia lering di tempatku...Renyah bagian luar dan ada isi yang bagaikan kejutan. Have a nice day Kak Veronica ^^

  11. I've never seen Heong Peah before, but they look absolutely delicious - nothing better than flaky pastry!
    Sushi isn't much of a favourite around here. The lychee nuts in jelly look very much like teeth in gums - not so appetising although I'm sure it tastes delicious.
    Happy Easter, Veronika.

  13. You do know that the cat steals the show, right? Maybe, just maybe, the flaky pastry can beat that... maybe...

  20. The lychee teeth are hilarious!

    I love sushi, but don't have a favourite. Heong Peah would be perfect with a cup of tea!

  21. Hello Veronica :=)
    It is interesting to see how these delectable biscuits are made, and I must say the one you are holding looks delicious. I have tried sushi twice but it was not to my taste, much to my daughter-in-law's disappointment because she loves it, and invited me out to lunch especially to eat sushi I laughed at the lychee looking teeth,good find!
    All the best
    hugs

  34. Hi Veronica,
    How are things going over here?
    Here in Brazil we are entering the autumn season but the
    The region where I live is already cold.
    I enjoyed discovering these stuffed cookies or breads,
    Interesting the way they are made.
    This way we have the opportunity to learn about other ways of
    day to day culture.
    I loved the images.
    Have a good start to the month of April.
