Angels brought me here…

Bidadari means “angel” in Malay and that is the name of this new bakery in town…

– or at least, I only noticed it lately since I’ve been driving up and down that road quite a bit these days. It is among the blocks of shops  right next to the Star Mega Mall here – you will get to it first if you are coming down from the airport and I am pretty sure you will not miss it as you can see it from the main road.

The Gawai Dayak Festival is just around the corner…so, those of you who are celebrating, have you bought all you need yet? And those of you who are thinking what to get for your friends who will be celebrating, you may want to drop by here as there are shelves and shelves of all kinds of cookies…

Cookies

…going cheap for the occasion. I saw on one shelf a price tag that stated the original price as RM25.00 a jar but it was selling for RM15.00, their special Gawai offer…and I saw on another shelf, jars of goodies that only cost RM10.00.

In their fridge, they have the celebrated kek lapis Sarawak in an array of colours including these rolls…

KLS - rolls

…that cost only RM20 each. There is a bakery selling these on the other side of town and the last time I bought some there, I paid RM25 for one.

The cakes don’t come cheap as you can see…

KLS - whole

…but you do not have to buy them whole. You can choose to buy the cut-up ones instead…

…and that way, you can have a variety – all the different types instead of a lot of just one or two of them. Don’t you think the watermelon on the top right looks just like the fruit?

Well, in case you simply cannot make up your mind since there are so many for you to choose from, don’t worry! You can try the samples that are made available for  you…

I like the chocolate mint best – the green and brown layered one on the left but the black one in the middle wins hands down! That is the hitam manis (black sweet) and it is so soft, so rich, so flavourful that it swept me off my feet. I loved it!!! If you buy the whole cake, it is RM90.00 each, a bit cheaper than those colourful ones.

Ummm…Teachers’ Day has just gone past on the 16th of May, right? Hint! Hint!!! As they always say, better late than never! LOL!!!
