For the past 2 years sometime around before Chinese New Year, Giant Hypermarket has been selling this ubi-like thing which is said to be imported from China. For a food item from China, it sure does have a strange name - Arrowhead!
Initially, I was kind of reserved when I had a first look. But when I saw more and more people - mostly Chinese - scooping the Arrowheads like it was some kind of treasure, I asked one of them about the strange looking thing. The young Chinese lady smiled and was kind enough to tell me what she knows about Arrowheads, and how to eat it; peel off the skin, slice it thinly, then just fry it as you would with a keropok. And so, emak and I tried it, and indeed it does make a nice snack as it is naturally sweet and crunchy. (correction: Crispy not crunchy!)
Yesterday afternoon, after meeting Doc TA and kerp near The Curve, I went to Giant Kelana Jaya and scooped up some 2 bags of these Arrowheads. One bag, off course, was meant for emak and me. The other bag? Well, early this morning I galloped off to Ulu Subang Jaya to a friend's house. Apart from thinking she would like it too, I think it is only fair for to give her those Arrowheads. Afterall, the cupid fella shot me a couple of times with arrowheads that has her name in it. Perhaps, if he's not willing to shoot the other way, I could always try it this way...sigh.
But honestly, you've got to try the Arrowheads. I don't have any pictures to show but you can read about it here.
Now, for an out-of-topic subject but related to the KLCC incident yesterday: do visit miqdad, Anak Bapa, Elizabeth Wong, Englishsection, and KeADILan, for more videos.
