While I disappeared from this blog to focus on a career, I became active on Facebook. Instead of paragraphs of text I used to craft & pictures which took hours to load for this blog, I shared pictures on the go on Facebook. Posting (mainly) my food adventures in mini-size. Easy, hassle-free & no obligation.
But today, a friend reminded me why I started this blog. It was to share the joy! Of anything small & seemingly insignificant. So, I got inspired that I should continue writing in this space since there are people out there who enjoy my words. & hey, since I’ll be writing from my WordPress iPhone app from now, my food photos won’t look as pretty as other food bloggers’ who use their professional cameras, but at least the food I’m posting here are ace, eh?
So for my comeback, I decided to start off with one of my favorite snacks since childhood; Sak Kay Mah (杀骑马). It’s an absolute lost art, for it to be handmade in this day. Do you know how many hours it takes Mr Pan to make it? 9 hours of blood, sweat & tears! (ok, I’m getting a little dramatic here because I simply love this old man who sticks by his art of SKM since the 1960s)
See how tightly packed this gem is? It’s my most precious gold bar I possess. It has the most mind-blowing combination of what a top notch SKM has; aroma, stickiness, sweetness & flavour. I bet you, every bite in this Lego-looking snack is phenomenal! If this isn’t orgasmic, I don’t know what is.
Plus, it’s made by the diligent, patient & friendly Mr Pan. Oh I love hawkers! They’re one of the nicest people in the world! Do grab blocks of his handmade SKM before 4pm!
