The kuih is affordable and also tasty!

In the video, a makcik can be seen wheeling a wheelbarrow filled with a wide range of kuih options to choose from around the island.

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Cheta revealed how she went on a 3-day trip to Tioman Island as she’s never been there before.

She mentioned how the makcik selling the kuih would often be around the area around in the evening to sell her kuih to toursists or visitors.

“Actually, it’s my first time going to Tioman and staying at Salang Pusaka. The makcik selling kuih that I met will be in the village of Salang every evening, but it depends on the tourists who are in the village.”

Makcik with the pink wheelbarrow

Cheta further explained that if the area is filled with tourists, you can’t miss the makcik as she always comes with a bright pink wheelbarrow full of kuih.

She also mentioned that the makcik offers a variety of kuih such as fish curry puffs, potato curry puffs, ketayap, cekodok, and more!

“The first time I met the makick, she was pushing a pink wheelbarrow. I was excited, of course, and I’m a fan of curry puffs. And her kuih was delicious and affordable.”

It was also mentioned that the price of the makcik’s kuih was much cheaper compared to those in the city.
