Things To Enjoy When It's Hot Outside..

My CNY holiday is finally over. For the past week, I spent most of my time staying indoors. It has been very hot lately as we are facing the heat waves for the past few weeks . Across the country, the temperature are staying above 30 Celcius. Here in KT, the temperature is always around 33C. The heat from the scorching sun is so intense, I dare not go to the beach or go for jogging at the park near the beach like I always do.


Usually we want to drink something cold or eat cold desserts during hot weather. Here are some of the things to enjoy when the weather gets warmer.



Tapai Ice -Cream (Ice-cream with fermented rice) which I prepared myself. Have you tried this?? Just scooped some ice cream and have it with rice tapai . A recipe I got from RASA magazine.


In the East Coast the real coconut juice can be found everywhere. It's good to have it during the hot weather. Coconut water is an isotonic solution which replaces the fluids and minerals that the body loses during physical activities. It is full of electrolytes, calcium, potassium, magnesium; everything that is good for you.


Fried Ice-cream at a stall at Batu Buruk Beach. Not bad at all..



A famous Malaysion dessert called ABC. It is primarily ice served with sweet flavoured syrup , red beans, sweet corn, peanuts and jelly.


Everytime I go to Rantau Panjang I surely won't miss this. It's the best coconut jelly I've ever had . The jelly is put in the coconut itself instead of plastic glass. This is at a stall in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan. This is very easy to prepare actually. If you want the recipe go to My Small Kitchen .


The best Air Bandung I've ever had -at Hayaki Kopitiam in Kota Bharu . This is rose syrup with evaporated milk

Cendol Tapai Ubi and Pulut. Yang ada tapai ubi dgn pulut susah sgt nak jumpa and this is at Hayaki Kopitiam Kota Bharu. The desserts ingredients are shaved ice, coconut milk, noodles with green food coloring (usually derived from the pandan leaf), and palm sugar, red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly and creamed corn.


Ice-cream Pudding from a kuih stall in Gong Kapas in KT.


Lompat Tikam. BTW, if the word Lompat Tikam is translated to English it would sound - JUMP and STAB! I always ask the Kelantanis why it's named Lompat Tikam??? but failed to get an answer. The ingredients are rice flour, palm sugar, coconut milk and glutinous rice.




Pudding from a kuih stall in KT. In KT there are a lot of puddings and jelly at most kuih stalls. Macam2 pudding ada...

Whatever it is, to stay healthy, remember ...we have to control our sugar intake, OK! Jgn makan byk2 benda manis tu! Make sure to drink more water and fruit juice during this hot weather. Hope all of us will stay cool always despite the hot weather condition.

  4. All those desserts are so mouth-watering good! I love fresh coconut juice but it's expensive in the U.S. Can't believe you guys have heat waves over there. It's still cold in my city. Spring is slowly coming around but not warm at all. I really wish we have some of the desserts you showcase in my city. I'm a dessert person :)

  14. Asian countries always boast the best and delicious desserts something that western countries fare far behind. We don't have the luxury of fresh coconuts or other exotic fruits. Your pictures are absolutely awesome..
