‘Ah Ma’ means paternal grandmother in Hokkien. Ah Ma House in Sekinchan, on the other hand is not someone’s grandmother’s house, but a specialty pastry store. The main products sold over here at Ah Ma House are traditional cakes and biscuits.
Apart from selling traditional cakes and cookies, Ah Ma House also sell childhood tidbits and snacks.
Check this out, these are the snacks and tidbits that are famous back in the 80s and 90s.
These tidbits and snacks are quite rare and difficult to find elsewhere these days.
Apart from traditional snacks and pastries, basic groceries that used to be sold back in 80s and 90s are also sold here at Ah Ma House.
Those who grew up in the 90s would probably remember this toy machine.
Spotted during my visit to Ah Ma House was an elderly worker making “Kuih Kapit” or in English, known as “Love Letters”.
Love letters in the making. Definitely a tedios task.
Freshly made “Love Letters” biscuit.
Love letters are packed away in the traditional way, in a tin instead of fancy packagings. Certainly bring back the memories of yesteryears where I used to indulge in “Love Letters”, one tin after another.
Shoppers enjoying their traditional snacks at Ah Ma House.
Shopping at Ah Ma House reminds me of my careful childhood years, with all the goodies that I used to buy and enjoy after school. Time really flies. It felt as if it was just yesterday I indulged in those snacks and now I’m already a mother myself.
