Chris gave me some Ba Chang she made herself. Ba chang is one of my favorite things. I tried my hands on it last year but I don’t think I want to do it again. Out of ten packages that I tried wrapping, I could only get one right. That was what I told my friend Chris over dinner. The first time I met Chris was at the Angry Bird Cupcakes class last November and since then, we have been keeping in touch by commenting on each other’s blog and on facebook. We wanted to meet up several times to catch up but we did not get to do that until last Monday. We found out that we are from same hometown, Ipoh. Somehow, we both agreed that when we meet people from the same hometown, we tend to feel connected easily. Obviously we chat till the cow comes home that evening. We had a fun evening together and greed that we must do that more often.
Coming back to the ba chang I got from Chris. When I reached home, I wanted to eat one before I go to bed. I knew I will be sorry if I did that. I tried very hard to resist the temptation but I was thinking about the ba chang the whole night long. LOL! So, the first thing I did when I woke up the next morning, I warmed two, one for me and one for my mum for breakfast.
The Ba Chang are from Chris of Pureglutton.
She made these herself.
My favorite way to eat the ba chang is with sugar. Oh yes, you did not heard wrongly, I always eat my ba chang with sugar. I know, most of my Kuala Lumpur friends thought that I am crazy when they saw that but that is how “Ipoh Mali” people eat their ba chang. Can some of the "Ipoh Mali" people confirm this? How about you? How do you eat yours?
Chris, if you are reading this post, TWO THUMBS UP for your ba Chang. The taste was similar to those I had when I was living in Ipoh. They brought back sweet childhood memories. See my next picture for proof of how good it is, do I need to say more? LOL!
If you are interested to know how to make ba chang, check this video and like what my Quay Lo used to say, "Knock yourself out!" LOL!
