Happy Dragon Boat Festival

It is dragon boat festival again! Sadly, this year I am not able to celebrate this festival with my family. Thanks to the blogger. I can pre-schedule this post and let it to be published on the right time.




Mum will never disappoint me; she has made me some Crystal Zong Zi 水晶粽 and pre celebrate this festival with me before I am heading for my trip. Don’t have ‘ba chang’ this time; but I do have this crystal zong zi.





They are Soft and chewy. Though mum put in quite an amount of lye water, I don’t feel they are strong with lye water and alkaline taste. These Crystal Zong Zi are best compatible with the handmade kaya by mum. The Kaya is thick with the egg yolks and strong aroma of fresh blended and concentrated pandan juice.


This year, mum is not going to make any ba chang. Firstly, dad and bro don’t like glutinous rice. Secondly, I am away. No one is going to finish her ba chang without me as the family's DBKL. Next, youngest bro is on his orthodontic braces where he is prohibited from taking chewy food. And finally, mum said making ba chang requires lots of hard work in processing from the raw material to the final product. Well, she has promised to make the Nyonya Zong Zi :)


Happy Celebration! ~
