So we were walking past a Thai restaurant, and it was the middle of a busy Sunday afternoon and all, and the colourful Thai desserts on display caught our eye, as they are designed to. We stopped to see what we wanted to stuff our faces with, as they are designed to.
A waitress working behind the dessert counter told us that the kueh were “minimum six pieces, six dollars and five cents”, while we mulled over which six of the colourful tiles on offer to pick.
“What’s the yellow one?”
“The green one?”
“Yah, we know, and so’s the white one, but what else are they made of? Can’t be all coconut and then just different colour right?”
“Don’t know, but all got coconut”.
“OK, four white coconut one, one yellow coconut one, and one green coconut one.
“I think the green one is pandan and coconut”
