Haw Flakes is hard to describe, a bit sour but sweet, but makes me addicted. The shape is round, almost like a communion bread in church (hosti), when i was a little girl, me n my sisters likes to pretend it was a hosti n we acted as if we did get one from the pastor.
Permen Cicak, is colourful outside but inside actually it is a soya bean, we call it ‘cicak’ cause it similar like that small lizard egg, that we occassionally found in the house. But unfortunately the taste is not as good as back then in the ’80s.
