Childhood 'keropok'


It has been more than 15 years since I did not eat this 'keropok' . Recently, when I saw this 'keropok' picture from my friend's blog, it just bring back so much of childhood memories.

This is actually a tapioca 'keropok' spread with some dark soy sauce. Those days, we can only find this 'keropok' during the Chinese 7th month - Hungry Ghost Festival. During the 'poh tor' period, my brother and I will pestered our parents to bring us to the open field just to buy this 'keropok' while enjoying watching some very old movies under the open sky. Mum being a health freak always limit our intake of such 'junk food' :(

All these years, I can't seems to find this 'keropok' anywhere and that explained why I've not been eating them for so long. Recently, my friend who went back to her hometown in Batu Pahat, Johor saw an old aunty was selling them. Looks like I will have to make a plan to visit Batu Pahat soon........... I missed my birth place too.

  20. I have seen and eaten this type of keropok before, but seldom-lah, and this is the first time I see it being eaten with dark soy sauce. All the while, the keropoks that I have eaten before have never been 'celup'-ed with anything. :P
