WHITE LADY @ #17, THIAN THIAN CAFÉ, HUI SING HAWKER CENTRE, KUCHING


It ain't a long cool Dane in a white bikini, and this is not an alcoholic cocktail either, but yet another fancy name given to another sweet dessert drink concoction - unique to Kuching. How the name comes about, I'd like to know. Not some ghostly appriration, I hope.

So what is it? That's the RM1.50 question. Behind the malt-looking float-kinda-thing contains the usual suspect: gelatin, pineapple, longan and orange crush with shaved ice and pandan syrup and a rich layer of evaporated condensed milk. with a slice of lemon added. What does it taste like? Goo-Leng-Peng with with fruity bits added, that's what it is.

Hey, come to think of it, doesn't it look like a mug of frothy beer? Probably this is what it is - an imitation of of a glass of the Danish Larger, harking back to the cinematic ad. of years gone by. Maybe the name is derived from the long cool Dane after all.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
