Waaaaahhh..*slurp slurp* I love bak chang and I have no idea where to get good bak chang here. Tried few places and got cheated. Very big but inside no 'liew', only rice with beans and a tiny piece of fatty pork. I miss those back home.

Precious Pea - the zhang you described is the local hakka zhang. I got soooo disappointed the 1st time I ate it. when my bf asked me nice or not, I said it's a very nice dao zhang(nut dumpling)!! all sorts of nuts inside but only 1 piece of pork >.<

i want lots and lots of black black bak that looks like still got abit of gravy inside *mouth watery* and aiwei's looks exactly like it *tummy growling* (@.@)
