粿 | Kueh by Lee Xin Li

These illustrations were circulated on the internet quite a while ago. I’m a little late but I do think that these are rather timeless! I had intended to post this on here for a while now – for purely selfish reasons actually. Wanted to find a good medium to store (and remember) these pictures because, it would be such a great picture to hang in my future kitchen! Not sure about you but, I’m constantly thinking of what I’ll hang in my future kitchen…menus? (I’ve kept quite a few personalized ones) cool food-related sayings? (I’ve a sign which says “seven days without chocolate makes one weak :P) or such illustrations?

These illustrations bring so much fond memories, mostly from my childhood -watching the  you zha kueh store uncle deep fry you zha kueh batter and watch it balloon, fighting for the peanut kueh tutu with my siblings (and not the coconut one), eating kueh lapis layer by layer, eating soon kueh smothered with sweet sauce in a lunchbox in school, convincing the chwee kueh aunty to give you more chye poh, feeling the burst of gula melaka in ondeh ondeh and kueh dadar when you bite into it, eating only the rice part of the kueh salat (i do love my carbs)…
