Color Me Delicious!

What starts off as THIS....


... ENDS UP as THIS....

And has CUTE, ITSY-BITSY baby clones in between???

YUP.. u guessed it ...

Lempeng is banana/sweet potato pancake and no place makes it like Haslam!! Gawd.. i love lempeng.. sometimes i even traverse hell's jam, just to get my fix, i do !

not only does haslam do excellent lempeng...
it has this KILLER cincalok... and,

killer STINKO Tempoyak ! Tempoyak, a Sumatran dish using fermented DURIAN, is a force to be
reckoned with i tell ya. Some days, when iv had
one-too-many chinese meals, I could just KILL
for ulam tempoyak... i swear.
Today was one of those days ;P
i also like the FLAYED ikan bilis... coz it's more shear and 'crunch worthy'...

and being an innard freak.. i love the LUNG... and the HEART.

Let it never be said that Malaysia lacks variety in cuizine.

Banish the thought ;P
