Tomorrow kah??? These days we can eat bak chang anytime any day...unlike in the past - just once a year. Why yours shape not the same one?? Don't look like Madonna's bustier??? Tot nyonya one triangular shape, inti fried with ketumbar???
Wei, pi mana? Go kai-kai issit.

same to you. =)

but dont buy from vendor (the bak changs) I heard they put lot of boric acid, so that the sticky rice wont stick to the palm leaves.

These days bakchangs, unlike madonna's bras, are less pointy.

Just wanna say Thank You for the yummylicious chang!
Hi Uncle Lee,
So sorry for this terribly late reply. I sure did have a good break from work and am now busy clearing up the piled-up workload.

You have a pleasant weekend, Uncle Lee.
hi suituapui,
my apologies too for replying late.
well, the bak chang shown in the pics are some gigantic ones...each weighing slightly more than 1kg!

and ya, the nyonya chang is the one with the into of minced meat, chopped candied melon and mixed with ketumbar. this one, remain my all-time favourite.
hi hijackqueen,
ya, gua pigi jalan-jalan cari makan.

hi famil,
i do buy from the vendor once in a while...the most is only satu biji once every few months. unfortunately gua ini, nyonya moden...tak tahu ikat the bak chang. :)

hi eve,
ya, gua balik kampung. :)

las montanas, sure got a funny take on that. bak changs come in many different variations.

hi auntieyan,
bak changs are mostly come in triangular/prism shapes but there are many variations too....some is longish and in the shape similar to lepat pisang but bigger in size.

re: the cerita, maybe i can direct you to 'hijackqueen's' blog...she has some write-ups there.

hi wennnn,
the bak chang shown in the post....satu biji is about 1.25kg. you sure you wanna order 2 pieces?

hi jonzz,
sorry lar, gua ini dunno how to tie bak chang. tried to learn once many years ago, but after struggling with it for 1 hour....I just gave up. hahhaha...

hi may,
we can go for bak chang party when you're back here. :)

hi winn,
i think you can see the 'undressed' bak chang at lokter chen's blog. :)

hi aceone, ada spy ke??

just me,
did you manage to pick up tips from your momma how to make yummylicious bak changs?

hi ah nel,
sure, i'll keep one for you next year. those 5 biji....gua hantar outstation liao.

hi william,
how many can you sapu in one go, huh? adoi...pulut memang very 'zhai' one lar.
oh, drink kopi can help in the digestion. thanks for the tip.

hi will,
thank you.

hi aiyah nyonya,
it's actually a giant triangle/prism-shaped with a square base. it's huge...1.25kg each piece.

hi dr chen,
i enjoyed the time spent with you. it was so much much food and so much yak-yak. :)
hi angel,
sooo poetic geh? hahahha.....
ya lar...gua pun rinduuuuuu....and rinduuuu.....many, many things.
hi moz monster,
sorry lar, gua tak pandai make bak chang. just cannot get tied right. :)

hi j.t.,
you like bak chang too?
now we can get bak chang whole year through. the bak chang i showed here is some unusual's kinda big weighing in at 1.25kg!

hi pearly,
you miss eating bak chang. nevermind, i'll buy for you, derek and the kids yummylicious bak changs, when you come back to malaysia next.

hi bernard,
i love nyonya pua kiam tnee changs (savoury & sweet types).
i had a couple of those when i was back in penang. soooo absolutely sedapssss...

err...errr....this one gigantic bak chang. :D

hi helen,

thanks so much. :)

hi kenny,
you are so busy with work. must remember to smell roses and bak changs too. :)

hi jazzmint,
ohhh......maybe can add the word 'giant' to it. it's BIG

hi sam,
you like changs too? have you tried those small yellow alkali-water chang which you eat dipped in gula melaka sauce? it's lip-smacking good.
does your kor-kor like bak changs too?

errmm...unfortunatly no.
i just cannot get to tie the chang properly. gave up after a few tries.
yes, nyonya chang is my favorite too. the normal bak chang is too rich for my liking.

hi pisanggoreng,
you are right...changs come in many, many shapes, types and sizes.
the ones in the pics...they are BIG!

hi savante, mean LULU did not bring some bak changs for you? :)
