Living in the region of Borneo Island – when we spoke of kolo mee, it is one of the common breakfast menus. Even we spoke of kolo mee, there are so many types of varieties, and each region there is slightly differentiation in terms of the texture and making.

But this place did serve a good simple bowl of Kolo Mee. Good taste and textures when we come to me when we spoke of this. It cannot be neither too wet or soggy.

The following is one of my favorite which in the past long long ago was prepared by my grandma but due to the aging process now this was being made by my aunt now. I don’t know what it was called but the skin of the pastry was made with tapioca that why it is yellowish and inside are combination of mixed vegetables like bean, carrots, minced meat and etc.

When it came to food from the childhood especially on the foods that one had eaten since young, the taste seems to burn into memory and growth on you. Due to the following, I believed that no matter how similar it was, it was always incomparable to the original not because it was not good enough but to me, it seems that when you growth with it, it kinda had a unique feels and taste profile.

A great thank for maintaining and still making it today.

Another star dish here will be the Laksa. Sometimes words cannot describe how goods it is? Therefore, it is easier to justify with the pictures. 🙂

Food market regardless in any countries is always an interesting place especially if you are food photographers or food lovers as there are endless ample varieties of foods gathered in one place. The following is some of the pictorial taken during our visit to the Gadong market in Brunei. Other than the foods, this market is well organised and very clean indeed.

The making of Apam Balik

The following is a little story on the making of kueh called “Apam Balik”. In term of English acronym, it is known as the turnover pancake.  This keuh is widely found in the street food section in the Asian market especially in Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore. If you are a street food goer, this is definitely familiar to you. The following pictorial below is taken from the market in the Gadong area in Brunei.

We started with batter applied over the round heat pan.

Usually, it come with raisin but as i am not a big fan of raisin, therefore, we decided to skip over that part

 

The making of apsm bslik 5.jpg

Nowadays apam balik come with different type of flavour other than the original traditional like chocolate, cheese and more. For now, we stick with the fusion of the west and east – the cheese.

Then condensed milk is poured over

 

The making of apsm bslik 7.jpg

Now, it is turned over and become shaped like moon and ready to be devoured

Another name of this dessert is called “terang bulan” in Indonesian. In English meaning, “Bulan” is known as the moon. And, it is logically from the final presentation, why it is called the moon.

Enjoy.
