:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

'Popia' spring rolls

Gosh! I miss those days when Mum and I would make 'popia' (spring rolls) for the family on weekends.

What is Popia?

Popia is a type of chinese spring roll with a very flat and thin surface, and round in shape. It's tasteless unless you stuffed it with ingredients on your choice, turning it into a delicious spring roll.

The most popular fillings are like yam bean, salad, bean sprouts, carrots, etc. It used to be a Chinese favorite. But now, even the Malays are trying their ways to make the food in their own style. There is just no right or wrong method in making a tasty food in Malaysia sometimes.

Similar food in other cuisines include the Filipino variant referred to as Lumpiang Sariwa, fried spring rolls (Chinese) and fajitas (Tex-Mex). In Vietnam, bò bía is the Vietnamese version of popiah, introduced by Teochew (Chaozhou) immigrants.
