The first time I came across it was during Chinese New Year more than a decade ago - when I spent the festive seasib together with my coursemate in her hometown in Ipoh. During my university days, I didn't go back home during Chinese New Year coz the semester break was too short for me to travel long distance back home to Sarikei.
p/s: Btw, I didn't fried the kuih myself. I bought it from the food stall. Kkkkkkk..
