time for ice-kacang

Mak cik (aunty) puts the finishing touch to my ice-kacang dessert. Photographed at the night market, Kota Kinabalu waterfront.

“Ice-kacang” in direct translation means “iced beans”. It is a local dessert with red beans, jelly, milk and fruit syrup, topped with ice shavings. I think I paid RM2 for this one. (US$1=RM3.15). Cheap and good.

The husband (I think) turned the fly-wheel on a machine which shaved ice onto my bowl of dessert.

ais kacang man..

A variation of the ice-kacang, this is ABC super! (Air Batu Campur which means ice-cubes mix). I had this huge tub at Tanjung Aru Beach, for RM2.50. Very cheap and very good! Wicked, wicked dessert.
