Malaysian treats

This is an official I received back in 2009, and SUCH a lovely card! I had actually had this one in my favourites for quite a while before then so I was super excited to receive it as an official Postcrossing card.

The cakes and cookies look totally mouthwatering! Zia, the sender of this card, tells me that 'kuih' is the general name for these cookies and cakes. They are usually made with rice flour, coconut milk, sugar and various flavourings. They can be prepared in many different ways - steamed, boiled, baked or deep fried. Mmmmm....! The pink ones with white stripes on the left are called 'lapis'.
