Roadside Snacks

I always have a soft spot for the makcik-makcik who sell kerepek from table to table or at the five-foot way of shops all this time.

Used to buy those kerepek ubi pedas from the makciks who sold them in front of Globe Silk Store.

And I always waited for them when I had dinner at Pelita in Bangsar.

Rarely see them nowadays but if and when I do, I'd beckon for them excitedly and buy some.
Not really because they are outstanding or anything. I don't bother buying any at booths or stalls selling the same snacks.

Just because, like I said; I have a soft spot for them. That's all.

  1. I also used to buy from the keropok uncle who came to my office to sell keropoks.
    However, those by the road stalls dunno they are nice or not. I prefer to buy from the known ones which are really good, like a stall in a pasar pagi near my home.

    1. It's actually not about the taste for me.
      I just want to buy stuff from the makciks.
      I just feel that it's not easy to get to their age and peddling stuff to earn a living.

  5. Hmm, I never noticed makciks peddling like this, usually it is makcik at a stall selling pisang goreng or keropok lekor. I would buy some from them too because I have a soft spot for their hardworks.

    1. Hard to find them.
      But when I do, I'll make sure I buy something.

  6. Eh, me too! Sometimes I feel sorry for them because they have to carry so many things and walk so far. My favourite is kerepek pisang. I can eat bags and bags of those hah..hah...
