sNacKs FroM taWau

Last two weeks, one of the staf in my department just came back from his hometown, Tawau. Been there for about a week gave him the opportunity to import some snacks that can easily be found in Tawau.

Itadakimas!!

The right one in the picture is 'kuih cincin'. It does looks a bit like 'kuih penderam' but the different is that 'kuih cincin' outer layer is not as soft as 'penderam'. And of course, 'kuih cincin' can be said as the extension version of 'penderam'.

Why?

'Penderam' as I know it is this small thing....that looks like a ring and dark brown in colour. As for 'kuih cincin'....easy to say, it consist (what a brilliant choice of word) of 7 to 8 'penderam' that being combined together. It does looks like a flower...i guess. Haha..

The taste...superb. Oldfolks saying 'rangup dan lazat'..buwahaha.

The left one in the picture is 'empelang' or also known as 'pelang-pelang'. Is is actually a snack made out from 'ikan tenggiri'. Yes.....good news for those who does not like fish bone.

The taste is great! Crunchy yet satisfying...haha. I couldn't get enough of this thing..once U got your hands on 'empelang', U just don't know when to stop....even the guy who tried to stop U will join in eventually...based on experienced...haha.

Lepat pisang?

The last one is this snack call 'buras'. Looks like 'lepat pisang' but inside is made out of 'beras'. It does smell like 'lepat pisang' but taste like 'lemang'. Haha....if it's taste like lemang, then it is best to be eat with some 'sambal' or 'rendang'....oh..suddenly my stomach starts to growl..lol.

Looks yummy..

I guess it is call 'buras' because of the main ingredient they use - 'beras'...may be after the 'beras' being cooked, it is called 'buras'? It is like a past-tense to the word 'beras'...haha.

... Azam baru...

kehidupan menempuh alam dunia
Menghabiskan waktu yang tidak lama
Usia bertambah senja tanpa terasa
Semakin dekat akhir tahun, menjelang tiba
Akhir tahun sebagai sarana evaluasi
Melihat kualitas hidup dari sisi diri
Menjadi kualitas pribadi yang mandiri
Untuk mencapai prestasi yang hakiki
Era baru datang menyongsong
Persiapkan diri jangan sampai kosong
Jangan mimpidi siang hari
Patah tumbuh hilang berganti
Semangat bersimpuh tanpa henti
Untuk hidup yang lebih baik & hakiki
Perjuangan hidup terus disokong
