I'm a little plump rabbit who lives in Penang. I hop around with a camera round my neck snapping photos of Penang and foodstuffs. If you meet a rabbit like that in Penang, that should be me ; )

Kingyo-yaki the little grilled goldfish

These goldfish shaped cakes are called 'kuih bahulu'. It is a kind of grilled Malay cake made mostly out of eggs. The cake reminds me of the Japanese grilled sea bream cake with red bean filling called 'taiyaki'. I bought these goldfishes from my hometown Alor Setar at the Malay market called Pekan Rabu, which a place where Malaysia's former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir used to sell 'kuih' or snacks when he was a little boy...

Pekan Rabu also known as Che Det mall...

Local snacks and biscuits...
