I was looking through my past photos just a couple of days ago. It's amazing that the year 2008 is coming to an end. I can still remember clearly, 2 years ago Durianberry and me went all the way up to Balik Pulau just for the pau! Because the exact time wasn't mentioned in Best of Malaysia both of us ended up waiting 2 hours for the seller!

Of course during the 2 hours we went exploring around Pekan Balik Pulau as well as asking people, what time would the pau man show up :P We did not dare to lepak too far away from the pekan as we were afraid we might end up at some peak of a hill and miss out the pau man.

Finally, we saw him while driving along the main road, about 200m off of the pekan.

The uncle was friendly enough to let us take pictures of him...

And his steamers load of pau! In an hours time, dozens of pau was swooshed away by locals or people like us. lol

I absolutely love his brown sugar pau. Not very sweet, fluffy texture and natural brown sugar smell are just hard to resist. Absolutely great for tea time XD

Happy New Year everyone~
