From Vania, the muffin lady, as Eliza always refers her🙂
Beautiful indeed, it was packed with all cardamomy things: cardamom tea, cardamom incense sticks, the cardamom itself, and an addictive sweet nibble called Soan Papdi for my sweet tooth.
I never knew Soan Papdi before, so this is my first time ever. To my surprise, who at first expected it was some kind of biscuit or so, it was arum manis, a.k.a. rambut nenek! You know, the hairy cotton candy we used to nibble when we were little?
The rambut nenek was packed in squares, and.. –this is the best part– was blended with cardamom, almond and pistachio. The result was superb. I never expected cardamom can go to such extent, lifting up the sweetness into another divine level that contains your brain with such excitement and energy. Oh well, maybe that’s just the sugar.
But the flavor was seriously divine, that I couldn’t resist to take another square after another square after another. I could feel my blood sugar jumping happily along with the excitement in my head. Gosh, Vania, you’ve successfully made me happy!
The tea was just as wonderful, I couldn’t be happier. How can I thank you, my gorgeous Muffin Lady? Gorgeous package from a gorgeous lady!
