Miku

Miku is actually the Hokkien word for the turtle dumpling. This year, I didn't visit the temple during the Nine Emperor Gods festive periods of nine days. I would love to buy miku for my people. Since the boss visited the temple nearby as he wanted to do some donations of food, I asked him to get me two miku. But he came back with these..


I just ate the small yellow one. Then I gave the other yellow one and the big one to my part-time cashier. Why her? Because without her, I would have to work full time. I gave the other big miku to one of my customers who gave me ang ku on that day. I also gave away the other two smaller ones to my other part-time worker who is very hardworking even though she is illiterate. So left one big miku for myself which I kept for my girl.

So recently my girl and I finished up the steamed miku with the kaya..

  1. I loved to eat Miku since I was a small kid. My aunt used to make lots of them and piled them up for prayers on her altar . She always gave them all to me happily as no one could finish them .

  2. When I started earning my own salary, I had to buy them myself as my aunt was too old to make them. I found the factory which made them in Penang and I always bought the largest!! It was about A4 paper size!

  3. I started getting creative and would slice them like sliced bread loaves. I will spread them with butter and pop them to the oven toaster to grill them until crispy!! I would eat up to 10 slices in front of the TV. It was so heavenly fragrant! Look at my size today lah!

  6. I have not tried miku, but I know what is it. I don't fancy these I guess due to the coloring. But if I were to eat it, I will cut into half, spread with mayonaise+add cheese and chomp on it in 1 mouth bite! Haha..

  8. the miku looks cute, and i think the smaller ones resembling peaches are even more cool, they just look like real peaches, especially the red one at the top corner :)

  14. Hello Wenn, thank you for explaining what miku is. I don't think I have seen them before because I seldom go to temples.
