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 ; )

Momotaro the peach bun

I find myself going to Air Itam almost every week to fulfill my laksa cravings. After having laksa, I would usually go to the market to buy some snacks. Today, I saw something really cute! It is a steamed bun in a shape of a peach. I guess they only sell these during some kind of chinese festival. There is a filling inside the bun. Not Momotaro the peach boy from the Japanese folklore but sweet lotus seed paste!
