The sweet taste of childhood- Putu Mayam



I tasted childhood again yesterday..
I bought two pieces and had it for tea yesterday :)
* Bliss*
My brother and I used to eat this for
breakfast when we were much younger.

I would beam with joy whenever I saw
the brown paper packet sitting on the
kitchen table. I knew it has to be my fav.
sweet treat~

As soon as my mum got more health conscience,
putu mayam was never a choice for our breakfast.
Another factor of coz was that this snack
is harder to come by of late..

It is such a simple snack.. flour, sugar & coconut
yet it fills my heart with so much joy as I munch on it ~

--------------------------

i got these putu mayam from:

Lor 8/7 Toa Payoh Industrial Park
Blk 9. There is a one and only malay food stall
in this canteen. It's just next to the Toyogo outlet

a friend just told me we can get putu mayam
at the Casuarina prata shop....
136 & 138 Casuarina Road
(Off Upper Thomson)

Its been a while since I had one. Like you, I ate it a lot as a kid, but since some years ago, its quite hard to find in hawker centers.

I wonder if its not popular to eat anymore.
