  1. Is this similar to ice kechang in Singapore? I have thought of trying to recreate it here, but not got around to it yet. Your recipe looks really interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yum, these Dango balls sound so delicious!! I must try to find this dingo flour, not sure if they will have it here in Miami, Asian ingredients are unfortunately very limited here! 😦
    Wow, I love your blog by the way, so many recipes that I love!! I am half Thai and therefore, I love all kind of Asian foods, I also love many of the Indonesian dishes – rojak and gado gado – so good! I used to work in Asia and would travel to Indonesia sometimes, once I was there during Ramadan and was went to a dinner to break the fast – it was soooo good! 😉

  3. Hi Miyuki! Your dish looks so refreshing and lovely. The Fiesta Friday gang has been eating and drinking all night long, so we need something refreshing like your dish! Thanks so much for bringing this to FF! I hope to see you again next week!
