How have you been…

I guess these days, at a time like this, this will be the first question people will ask when they meet somebody that they have not seen for a very long time.

Well, that was what those nice & friendly people asked me when I dropped by my regular Malay kuih and food stall…

…at the Bandong shops here that day.

Maybe it was already mid-morning so there were not many choices available or perhaps, they haven’t gone back full swing yet. The lady boss said that things were getting better now – it was very bad before this. Thankfully, they managed to sail through.

I saw these packs of curry puffs (RM3.00 for a pack of 2)…

…so I grabbed a few to take home and try.

I really admire people who can make such fine, uniform layers…

…in their puff pastry. I, for one, will never be able to do that! The pastry tasted very nice but maybe because it was cold already, it was not flaky nor crusty – I would love it that way.

The filling…

…tasted great, slightly spicy but if the D written on the pack was supposed to stand for “daging” (meat), I’m afraid one would be hard-pressed trying to find any inside.

I went over to have a look at the ice cream in their freezer and I bought two of these (RM4.50 each)…

…for the ladies in the house to try. I believe this is new as I don’t think I have seen it before. Of course I did not buy any for myself since I am on a low-sugar diet. Sobssss!!! Well, they did give it a try eventually and yes, they loved it!

I also bought the classic…

…because my girl likes it very much. They also had the almond but I did not buy any nor all the different types of ice cream that they had in the freezer from that same company.

I really enjoyed dropping by here before to have a bite to eat or to buy some of the things they had for sale. I hope that things will pick up slowly and go back to normal – I certainly will want to go back there again!

KOPI KOPI Café & Kitchen is located at the blocks of shops, at the back facing Bandong Walk (2.313869, 111.825808) and the main road.

  1. These days, more commonly heard and asked question will be.. “lu phak hor chiam boi?”🤣🤣. I love those Magnum ice cream but these days I also try to refrain from taking too much sweet things too even though my sugar is perfectly ok as at now.

    I guess that question has gone past its time, nobody will ask anymore…unless they are asking about the more current booster shot,

    I bought for the ladies in the house to enjoy, comforting to enjoy when cooped indoors day in, day out. I did not buy any for myself, excellent self control not by choice. Sighhh!!!!!! 5.3 when I tested yesterday – very good, praise the Lord!

  2. Yes, the pandemic has made physical meet up more valuable than before.

    Glad that the shop could withstand the crunching economic blow that the lockdown has brought. Otherwise, more shops will be closed.

    Thankfully, we do not get to see that happening a lot here, some stalls perhaps but except for a sprinkling, most shops are still around. Perhaps their premises are self-owned so they can survive even when times were hard and they were not getting much business.

  3. I love magnum, but there’s another brand here in aus, it’s called connoisseur and it has more flavours; but i think magnum is trying to keep up because of all the new flavours it is releasing in the market. classic will always be a favourite. when it comes to puff pastry, being a bread person, the only thing that matters to me is how nice the taste of the puff pastry, i don’t really think much of the filling, sometimes i would even get rid of them and just eat the pastry 🙂

    Yes, the pastry is important. A lot of the puffs they sell here fail big time, so soft/limp, not tasty but I do take into account the filling too, not just one or the other.

    My girl loves their Classic too. Indeed, they are always coming out with new flavours. We do not have that Australian brand here but we do have Kit Kat ice cream. At one time, we had New Zealand’s Kapiti but it did not last too long here. Too expensive, I guess.
