went Hunting for Ipoh Famous Kaya Kok....fruitful mission!

After reading some comments in a non Ipoh blogger's post (sorry cant recall who exactly..please reveal yourself)recently about how good Ipoh kaya kok is..really put me to shame. I was bred, born & multiplied here in the Pomelo & Bougainvilia City yet not knwing it's famous for puffy, fresh warmly baked Kaya Kok..besides the famous Nga choy Kai (Chicken & taugeh).

So I decided to take up the challenge to ask around. All i knew was there were a few KAYA kok stalls or shops around town ..to me they all taste "Nothing special" until finally majority of the people I asked, told me to go to this shop with the following address:
SIN ENG HEONG
No 64, Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri (jalan Clare),
30300 Ipoh.

Elaine Ng 012-4534596 or o5-2439659

Better call to order. U may need to wait if there are not enough fresh supply on the spot.




In the shop, I saw this uncle & auntie making fresh Kaya KOK.






The pictures spoke for themselve I hope.

Besides, the shop also sells other variety of biscuits:



My goodness..the kaya kok is really puffy, warm & nice (though a bit too sweet for me). It's 60sen per piece. Enjoying some with my beloved hubby now in front of the idiot box (TV).

i bought 1box with 10 pieces to try & as "recess" food for my kids.

So the next time you drop by Ipoh, make sure u don't miss it. It's somewhere near the famous "LO WONG NGA CHOY KAI".

hi renet! thanks for the visit. yeah, its true. i haven't been blogging lately because my mind's all messed up. there are a lot of things going throught it (my mind) right now. am just content at visiting friends blogs and peppering them with my comments. you are right in saying that i am a positive person or at least i'd like to think that way... TRUST is so very important in married life. i'd like to think that all the other elements of marriage revolves around this one important aspect. and i love my children so much they are all i have in life now. they are the one's keeping me around and helping me keep my sanity in this "hellhole". thanks so very much for your comments... if it is not so much to ask, i would like to request that you include me and my kids in your prayers. rest assured that i will do the same for you, your hubby and your kids. like eugene says... am learning and trying to be happy one day at a time. ciao!

much love,
bong florendo

"WHERE REASON ENDS, FAITH BEGINS" btw, i'm a taurean too, may 7. thanks friend. ciao!
