I ♥ PINK

'Huat ger' (Not sure what it is call in English, anyone?)
We first introduced this 'kuih' to YX when mum bought some over from Johor. He fell in love with it instantly. He always said this is 'Pink kuih-kuih' and will ask us to buy for him whenever we are at the Pasar Malam.

Cut into small pieces for YX to eat
However, hubby and i don't really fancy this at all. XJ don't really like it either, but will eat it when she saw her brother eating. She never finish the whole 'kuih'. Only 1 or 2 bites and pushed the whole 'kuih' to me. I will then offer the unfinished 'kuih' to YX and he will happily ate it! haha

My favourite 'kuih'. Do you like this too ?
This is my mum's favourite 'kuih' too. She loves to steam them hot and spread some butter over it. Now she knows YX loves this 'kuih', she never fails to bring some over whenever she comes to Seremban to visit us.
