Potong Ice Cream, or ‘Aiskrim Potong’, is a traditional local snack. ‘Potong’ means ‘cut’ in Malay, so they are literally blocks of cut ice cream. They usually come in flavours such as red bean, sweet corn, durian, yam and cendol, with a creamy texture from coconut milk.
Potong Ice Cream is one of my parents’ more popular childhood snacks, but my generation love them too. My cousins and I used to have them when we wanted inexpensive, yummy ice cream.
Not everywhere sells these anymore, so it’s always a joy to have find them and slurp on some sweet, icy nostalgia.

Jo Nesbo is fantastic. Check him out if you haven’t.
Went to a charity fair with a few fellow high school comrades. I believe it’s time to meet the entire gang.
Got a lovely bit of British-ness in the post box.
Can you believe it if I told you that I left the office earlier than usual today? Neither can I.
My craft mojo is back but I plan to do this properly now. With that I’m starting my craft toolbox.
Nothing fancy at the moment though that would change. Exciting!
