The Nostalgic Shredded Coconut Snack

Thanks, Papercrazy for the nice gift and the lovely homemade card. The handmade card is indeed very unique, with very lammmm wordings :) What is the occasion? Cos I "spammed" her blog at the correct time and this was my reward. *wink*

She mentioned "expect the unexpected", but I couldn't get what she mean earlier on ... :)

And much to my surprise.. Wow.. One packet of white and pink-coloured shredded coconut coated with sugar was enclosed together with the pressie & the card. This is indeed a surprise :) She posted one post on Childhood Food Reminiscence recently and one of the items she mentioned was this shredded coconut coated with sugar. That was something that I used to savour during my childhood time (primary school time). Thinking about it, I haven't eat this snack for at least 2 decades. I have totally forgotten about this snack till I read her post recently. This is indeed something nostalgic, don't you agree? ;)

Once again, thanks for the lovely gifts, Papercrazy :)

maybe liucas will know . can borrow for him to sniff sniff a bit?

papercrazy said...

U r most welcome....awwww

So shy lah, u posted the card...eh, the card looked quite nice hoh from this angle or perhaps it's your professional skills of arranging and snapping the camera...

Sorry just managed to send u so little....I actually bought 100grammes but bila want to masuk the bubble envelopes, aiyak, envelope too small so I threw away half of it lor...

Shud have given Redsponge the other half hoh??

Chen said...

misti,
haha, indeed I have a good night sleep yesterday night..
Till I lazy to wake up this morning :P

Cocka,
wah… ini cocka manyak berfikir..
this one ah… they taruh artificial colouring ..
Mmmm…. I would like to know how a genetically modified coco-nuke taste like too..
And I hope the genetically modified coconut has a soft husk  easier to open

LB,
Poor LB having amnesia & lost his way. Don’t worry, I can bring u to the mata station (police station loh).. They can help u to identify & locate your way back home :)

Chen said...

Winn,
*ring ring*
Yeah, might be Liucas the genious dog will know :P
Might be hoh.. he ate up all the shredded coconut snack in the past,
That’s why u didn’t get to try it when u small time :P

Liucas is such a notti boi :D

paper crazy,
The card itself is nice at the first place mah.. TQ TQ
U r indeed very creative :)

Wah.. I tarak professional skill lah… kakkaka.. u talk lidat, later I might float float up to Cloud 9 :P
Kekee… I like to take photos from different angle – different feel mah :D

Throw away half of it ah?
U should feed the other half to Red sponge or your little mei-mei instead :P

ah nel,
got difference meh?
The pink coloured one look nicer only lah..
Still taste the same woh : D

mistipurple said...

*licks computer screen*
wishes tis is star trek time. can simulate food and instant can get.

ah nel said...

the pink 1 more sweet... ;)

nyonyapenang said...

ya, those 'sugar-high' childhood snacks. ho chiak!

velverse said...

wah!!! really nice and how sweer of her :) Hehehe

Cocka Doodle said...

Dr. Jekyll, those thai coconuts you find in the restaurant are GM mya. They also spliced it with pandan plant genes to give it that pandan flavor.

I read that some places in japan, they even splice the genes of cold water fish into tomatoes so that they can grow in colder weather.

Chen said...

misti,
hahaha.... I hope your computer screen is clean then... I worried u might lick all the dust and watever germs on the monitor leh.. :P

Give misti a handful of shredded coconut snack :)

ah nel,
i prefer the thinner shredded coconut snack - taste better compared the thicker one :)

nyonya,
when small time.. all sweet stuff are nice stuff (not like nowadays loh..) kekkeke.. another example is the cotton candy :P

velverse,
yeah, very sweet of her :)
I didn't expect she will send me that :)

cocka,
I see..
Thanks for the info.
I dunno about that :)

papercrazy said...

HAHAHAHAHAH I know, I know, the card really sounded lam but I kep quiet until PC pointed it out but too late to re-do a new one (Have to send quickly because the coconut expires lor)

Can't blame me mah, never make card for this kind of purpose wan lor....

Chen said...

Kids nowadays are spoilt with too much varieties liao.. hehee..
