Lok Ching

i arrived home from work at 6.45. it was after i had a glass of teh tarik with Akhmal at Pelita Jln Ampang. i had no mood to work, holiday syndrome still in the air. there was meeting in the morning and it went very well, on the afternoon there was some briefing about Flexible Work Hours. it was a good session, letting us (the employees) knows what constitute the flexi hours and what not. although it seems that all the examples focus more on those with families issues, hey what about a single person, don't they also have issue??

anyway, when i reached my apartment, i saw this old man selling something on the back of his kapchai. at first i thought he was ice cream or rojak peddler, but as i approached him, i smelled a sensation that i had missed for a long long time. it smells like a barbeque but not quite the same, a little more like ikan bakar but with more aromatic feeling. the smell of the item and the charcoal burning, bring me back to the good old time of my childhood.

it was a very famous snack for kids in Kelantan. i couldn't find this thing at any other areas, maybe it wasn't sold there or maybe i didn't looked enough. but today its here in KL. this thing is called Lok Ching.

funny names but don't ask me how did it get the name. as far as i'm concern everyone in Kelantan called it Lok Ching.

It come with two flavor of sauces, pedas and manis. normally people would just mixed it and called campur. just like McD ice cream, the choc and the vanilla.

here is the photo of Lok Ching or whatever name your call it out there. :D
