Ice Kachang



I post this because the colours resembles much like the coming Christmas season. Everywhere is in the midst of preparation for xmas, such as all decorations in green and red. Instead of putting up a christmas tree photo, I wanna introduce this very cooling dessert which is much favoured in Singapore. Not just becos of our climate which is summer summer summer throughout the whole year:) we also love spicy food like curry, sambal, chili crab etc

So you can imagine, this coloured ice scrappings that formed like a 'mountain' and underneath are red beans, atap seeds (the soft ones are really delicious;)), some jelly cubes in pink, green stripes and they also added 'durian' these days:)

I was told that in the 60s, this dessert is held in the hands and it is shaped like a ball:) Lots of children and adults both love it. But due to hygiene reasons, this way of eating ice-kachang is seldom seen. What kind of desserts do you like in your city?

Wow! This is a fabulous shot. In the 60s in the US these were called Snow Cones (served in a paper cone shaped like an icecream cone).
