Some people called it kuih Jongkong, some people called it kuih Limas and some people called it kuih Sampan. Tepung Pelita is originally found in Perak, a two-layered cake that is made out of coconut milk and pandan custard. The bottom layer is green coloured, makes it look similar to something placed on a lampstand. Hence it is named Tepung Pelita and “Pelita” itself means lamp.
- Soya Cincau

Soya Cincau is extremely well known in Malaysia and is also nicknamed Michael Jackson in reference to one of his famous songs, “black & white”.The amalgamation of grass jelly and soya is favored among locals and are welcoming when it comes to beverages. Soy milk is known to be nutritious as it contains needed nutritions such as fatty acids, proteins, fiber and vitamins.

A cold refreshing drink that is made with the mixture of evaporated milk and pandan flavoured syrup, katira gum, basil seeds and malva nuts. It is one of the popular drinks sold during the fasting month of Ramadan in Singapore and Malaysia. However, it is known to have many other versions like bandung, blueberry or chocolate flavoured.
