That Chewy Pride

If you love kuehs (local term for cakes) then you must have heard of Ji Xiang Confectionery. Tucked away at a corner of Outram along Everton Road, true tradition breeds these indescribably tasty handmade Ang Ku Kuehs. As I experienced first hand, salivating is a big hindrance to street photography, much more to hygiene necessary to selling food. I struggled before giving in to ordering four peanut and two coconut kuehs. With my first bite, it’s hard to describe that unique soft outer texture which is totally unlike other machine-produced kuehs I’ve ever eaten. When I hit the inner contents of the peanut paste, I was rendered mute for that few chewy minutes. I strongly urge you not to take my words for it. Go try.
