A VENDOR SELLING PUDDINGS HAD SET UP HIS CART NEAR THE LAKE, WHERE COUPLES CUDDLE, KISS AND GIGGLE. I WAS MISSING SUZE AND FEELING LONELY – SOMETHING SWEET WOULD MAKE ME FEEL BETTER, SO I ORDERED THIS UNUSUAL SWEET PUDDING WITH VEGETABLES AND NICE TRANSLUCENT CHEWY BITS, TOPPED WITH CREAMY COCONUT. IT WAS STRANGE BUT I REALLY LOVED IT. VIETNAMESE PEOPLE EAT THESE SWEET PUDDINGS AS A SNACK, RATHER THAN AS A DESSERT.

I LIKE TO USE PANDAN LEAVES IN MY DESSERTS AND PUDDINGS AS A VANILLA
