This is a REAL TRUE STORY ...and also Saw Loon told me it happended to her place to Tunjang, Kedah. I think it happended to us too, in PERLIS (Titi Chai Kangar, the pasar malam area where they always selling GORENG PISANG in the noon)

Mom said, my uncle saw they fried the GORENG PISANG they added the STRAW (which we use to drink water) and melted into HOT OIL before fried that why, the GORENG PISANG, GORENG UBI, etc, all very crispy for hours.

And, my uncle could not explain why, and he asked them, they just keep quite. And then whem my uncle told my mom, and we realized this is how to make the foods crispy for a while.

Becareful of Thailand stuffs too


Crispy Ikan Bilis, Crispy fried onions, which if u leave in the open air for hours still crispy.

Like in CANADA, our place only, we only rain 5-times or less a YEAR.

So, if we leave our breada in open air overnight, next day it will really crispy. Otherwise it will never, because the environment here is very dry, but in Malaysia, it should not be because too moisture there.

Pls forward to all your friends,


esp from the hawker !.. try leave it in the open air for hours and see..

Here's another one:

I have been to Cameron Highlands with my family, it was 3 pm++, we are hanging around the market area, we saw many hawker stall doing their business, suddenly something attracted me.

One of the stalls, there was a big wok of oil, there was a half-5-litre empty oil bottle on it.

It's melting slowly in the hot frying oil. I thought it was an unintentional act by a 7-yr-old girl, but when i looked at it closely, i saw a pair of chopstick stiring the bottle, seemed like it was purposely. Immediately, i asked my family to come and check it out. At that moment, the parents of the girl who sat beside, were looking at us ferociously.

Oh my god, they using melted plastic to fry food... the reason is the tit bits will not soften after placing for sometime due to plastic had been harden after melted.

Experiment had been done as below.

One without plastic food is kind of soft after a while ¼add plastic, and fry another once again... it crispier than KFC !!

Please stop eating this hawker's fried food...

Ask your mummu to fry if u want to eat..

This is their secret receipe ...
