Heavenly Breakie

I kinda miss the old days of having this for breakfast... dipping the yew char koay (油炸鬼) or yew tiao (油条) into the black hot coffee.. Heavenly (although I'm not a coffee person). Simple yet tasty.

I had this in Hatyai. The mini yew char koay (油炸鬼) /yew tiao (油条) & black coffee. This is the first time I see such a cute, fat yew char koay (like stunted growth, hahaha), cos all the while I only see the long version in Malaysia. Small sized things are always cute, don't you think so?

breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out.. stay calm :D

slurp,
indeed very cute. First time I see such cutie :D

SA,
talking about drinks, I prefer tea more than coffee, but to eat together with yew char koay, black hot coffee is the best ;)

LB,
hahha, wat u talking about here ah?
*keluar tajuk oledi* LOL

YD said...

haha feels like giving labour pula...

i pengsan oledi, stop breathing liao. :-D

one thousand one, one thousand two, one thousand three, one thousand four, one thousand five. blow, blow. one thousand one, one thousand two...

L B said...

*sending smoke signals*

Chen said...

yd,
hahha, no lah.. giving labour is like this.. take deep breath in, take deep breath out, deep breath in, deep breath out :D But nowadays, with the wonder of epidural, labour can become painless... (provided done under expert hand). So,no worry.

Wai, don't stop breathing. I'm not free to do CPR at the moment. LOL

what is all those 1000+ figures? doing CPR ah? :P

lb,
searching hi & lo for the smoke signal booklet to interpret what message u sent here.. I must have thrown it away last time when I shift house.. Cham :(

Hmm actually I think the small version of yau-char-koay is ugly, much prefer the long one.. still it's the taste that matters right?

Would prefer to eat it with some porridge though..

Winn said...

And usually my family will "sapu" her whole basket.. .since it is so cheap mah! Really tasty taking it with hot black coffee!! ;)

angeliu said...

Civet coffee? I hv not heard abt it b4 but with that kinda name, I don't think I'd like to try... BUT I did google it and, I quote, partially fermented by passing through the digestive system of a Sumatran Civet Cat. Unquote.

???

Ewwwwwwwww... so liuliu... Kopi Luwak pulak the name... liuliuliu!!!

But thanks the docchenliu for ajaring me something new todays...

Oh, btw, no hangover last nite... just that i was hopping to everyone's blog making my tenkiu speech... so chuan... but orgasmic none the less ;)

winnliuliu, cheh... i thot u becums owliu like angeliu liao... thot got owl partner... mana tau, liuliu wan... :P

Chen said...

spinosum,
sapu the whole basket? Wah…then the old lady must be very happy.. She can sell off all her yew char koay in such a short time :)

selba,
I know u definitely won’t have Turkish food for lunch, kekekek :D

cynthia,
now I kinda feel like eating it again… feel a bit hungry at the moment..

angeliu,
Here is another post regardingcivet coffee I get from one of the bloggers. Hehehe, keng or not the civet coffee? By the way, it’s expensive stuff & not easy to get..
But I definitely won’t dare to try..
Imaging eating or drinking the droppings of the civet?
Yucks….

Hopping blog till so late at night? I presume I can see the panda-eyed angeliu this morning :D
Cos she didn’t sleep yesterday night !!!

jonboy60 said...

FH2O said...

I still take 'em but I spread kaya on before dipping in hot black kopi! yummmmm :)

day-dreamer said...

Last time when I was still a kid we used to buy yau char kuai in the morning to eat. If we leave it till later in the afternoon, it'll be hard (in the sense of hard to break). Then my mother would say if we kids have shaky tooth just place the yau char kuai at that tooth, bite and pull and the tooth will fall off. Hahahaha!

Chen said...

jonboy,
can I post the pictures to u instead?

fh2o,
woh, new way of eating yew char koay. Seems like u like kaya a lot. I remember u eat muffins with kaya as well.

day dreamer,
LOL can save $$$. No need to visit the dentist ;)
