Twisties Fizz (Limited Edition)

Twisties just came out with a limited edition (oh, these magical
words ;)) flavor to add to the existing Twisties line of snacks.
There’s a huge rack promoting the new Twisties Fizz in supermarkets.

I don’t really like eating Twisties, but what got my attention was the Fizz
bit…it seems that this snack is effervescent! I couldn’t help it –
the unusual nature of the snack coupled with the “Limited Edition” tag
compelled me to purchase one.

This is what Twisties Fizz looks like – it has a blue motif and
bubbles all around. There’s even a red mouth and tongue with
effervescent (excuse me, it’s the word of the day ;)) fizzy bubbles all
around it. To top it off, there’s a speech bubble going “aaaah…”,
with four (4) a’s.

It must be good, I thought. It even has a how to guide at the back
to explain to the less intellectual ones amongst us the methodology
involved in enjoying this effervescent (sorry, I can’t help myself)

The actual implementation was rather disappointing though…I had to
finish the whole pack coz no one else would eat it – descriptions
ranged from “strange” to “Twisties are not supposed to taste like
that”. Twisties Fizz is actually orange flavored, with fizzing bits (look at the crystals).

It’s definitely an acquired taste and I can see why it’s Limited
Edition – I don’t think it would sell. It’s more of a novelty snack.

Coconut chendol special

I saw this decadently designed dessert and the picture just called
out to me…it felt like the photo was compelling me, saying “Order
me…I am a big bowl of coconut and chendol goodness and you’ll love

…and love it I did. πŸ˜‰ The whole concoction is made of a plethora
of ingredients – chendol, yam pieces, sweet potato, sweet bean, sweet
corn, and others, all stuffed into a real coconut with coconut juice
and flesh and topped with evaporated milk. It was over the top.

Here’s a closer look at the ingredients contained inside the Coconut
chendol special. It’s well worth the RM 3.50. There are a lot of
unorthodox ingredients that belong better in a bubur cha cha mix e.g.
the sweet potato and yam, but the coconut implementation is rather
unorthodox too. It’s nice to drink the slightly tart juice of the
coconut mixed with the classic chendol milky sweet taste while
harvesting flesh from the coconut to eat.

Coconut chendol special tastes like chendol crossed with bubur cha
cha and given a twist with real coconut juice and flesh. It’s amazing
that no one has thought of this before. It gets two thumbs up from me.

Fried pah wee

shi shan shui cafe

There are a lot of memories embedded with eating fried pah wee at
Shi Shan Shui Cafe located opposite the library. I used to come here a
lot with a couple of my friends for dinner while studying at the public
library…but sparing you the trip down memory lane, let’s get straight
to the food.

pah wee pawe

This is pah wee or pawe which literally means white pasta. It’s a
uniform sized flour based product that bears a close resemblance to its
cousin, kueh tiaw. Pah wee is usually soaked in water until an order
comes in to soften it up. The same proprietor has been manning this
stall since the days of my library “study” excursions, but again, the
nostalgic monologue will be saved for another day.

Pah wee is usually fried with soy sauce and other sauces and its
served like spaghetti – al dante. It’s fried, but the springiness is
retained while having a soft center in these pasta like flat rotund

fried pah wee eat

Here’s the fried pah wee dish that I remember having all those years
ago…it still tastes the same. πŸ™‚ The pah wee is chewy and topped with
fresh spring onions and the salty dish is best eaten with a side of
chilli sauce. It’s great and it’s a dish that’s hard to find outside

Sibu’s famous kompia

sibu kompia dry

Sibu is well known for kompia as the birthplace of kompia began here. Kompia or kom pia
(literally baked biscuit) is a uniquely Sibu based product. There are
several different implementations of kompia, the most basic being just
the baked pastry without filling.

However, the most popular implementation is arguably the meat filled
kompia soaked in meat gravy. It usually goes for about RM 0.50 per
piece. Different people prefer different variants, but the only type
I’ll eat is the gravy soaked meat stuffed kompia.

I like to soak the kompia in the meat gravy for a long time till
it’s all soggy before eating the whole soggy mess of bread and meat and
gravy. It’s like a salty Tim Tam Slam, Sibu style. πŸ˜‰

It slices and it dices!

sibu vege promotor

I saw this promoter for this kitchen appliance that was going for a
very affordable RM 19.90 and yet seems to have the integrated
funtionality to replace most of your kitchen items. I watched the demo
just now at a shopping center in Sibu and the promoter was coaxing me
to get it for my gf or my mom coz she noticed me taking pictures of
her. πŸ˜‰

I said I’ll think about it and I’ll come back if I decided I need it, and she said she’ll wait for me.

I hope she’s kidding, coz it’s going to be one hell of a long wait. :p
