Four Seasons Kong Pia!

Doesnt this seems too familiar for us? (especially people from sibu) Kong Pia. The smell of sesame seeds and the hardness of this biscuit.....Having it around us since we were just couple of feets tall.

I never bother much about how it is made, just took one and put into the mouth. It's really nice whether with meat or just plain. The hardness is what made it so unique. Until a few days ago...I saw this shop...
Si Ji Siang biscuit shop. It was just a tiny shop not even 20 metres square i guess. Very crowded with stuffs..then i take a closer look.... KONG PIA!!!!
The most tradisional way of making it...with a charcoal oven like this...
in the process of making it...
the doughs..
This is the tauke. A young man with strong arms busy taking the kong pia out as fast as possible, afraid that they were burnt...He is a shy man i guess with all the asking, he only said a few words and smile. He didnt bother much about how he looks in front of the camera, just continue his works and smile whenever i snap. It's oven-hot there.
How many young man like him would sacrifice his time and wake up at 3am in the morning for the sake of making kong pia?Well, i ate a few. Then i realised, KONG PIA ISNT HARD when it just came out of the oven! How..amazing..(it seems so sakai) It very soft and the smell of the sesame seeds was even stronger. it's simply perfect.......
Well, not much people could made kong pia in such tradisional way nowadays....So next time, when you want to eat KONG PIA, try having the freshly baked ones, no, the tradisionally-freshly baked ones, you'll be surprised. trust me. :)
