Every year before the Chinese New Year, my mum will jio us to go Teluk Intan. Previous years, it will be a trip to get the golden cake (nien gao) which my aunt home made. Every year, the minute I stepped into her house, I will have one of those in my hand, and scooping it with a spoon. It’s so soft, that I can just eat that way.. and of course, the house will be filled with lots of aroma.
This year, my aunt did not do this anymore, but we still go back as she will be celebration CNY with her children in Singapore, therefore my mum would want to meet her before she leaves (that’s how close ties are my mum and her sisters).
One thing for sure when we balik kampung, we will go with empty car and come back with full loads.. Let me share with you what we bought this trip…
Dried Beancurd Skin (For wrapping Lobak in CNY)
Variety of Heong Peah, and others
Kopitiam Coffee Powder
Pineapples (this whole lot is only RM10)
This were all consider ‘little’ as we used to have more ‘sapu-ing’. This time round we just didn’t spend lot of time there as we only have a night there. We left KL at 4pm on 31st Jan, and leave Teluk Intan about the same time the next day.
On top all this stuff my mum sapu, we had dinner there and I tell you, eating in TI is such a enjoyment, coz the food is fresh, and CHEAP!!
We had 4 of us eating that night, and the bill come to RM45.00 and everyone went back home with a big smile on the face!
