noodles, our 'char kuey teow' - a fried flat noodle dish

'Kuehs' are bite sized savory or sweet delicacies,
popular as canapés. The 'karipap' - akin to a small

notoriously known as the king of fruits, is not for the
faint hearted. Nevertheless, once hooked on it, you will
find that you just can't get enough of it. Other
favorite local fruits not to resist are 'rambutans',
'nangka' (jackfruit), 'cempedak', mangosteen and
