i seldom see old uncle selling this liao.. in the past they will find a nice place to stand, set up their wooden stand, sit the metal round pan and ding ding ding away.. so nice..

den the packet will not be sealed.. u just pay and grab 1 pack.. now all zip lock bags somehow i miss the old style.. :)

Those sold at food fairs by FT sometimes really sub-standard..
Either not fresh or taste funny..
I threw away those 'rocks' the last time i bought from Novena Square food fair.. :P

There's a booth at Heartland Mall (Kovan) selling this. Quite nice. My students like it. $1 a pack. Not very hard and no funny smell.

I miss the days when my brother and I will push the table to the window and do our homework there while waiting for the 'ding ding' uncle and the 'bell' uncle to arrive! Cos my parents will give us money and ask us to run down to get some :)

And we'll race down very excitedly :D
