Happy Flour, what an interesting kuih. What is its origin? Malay or Nyonya. Must give it a try sometime after the 'Chang' festival. I was lucky to receive various rice dumplings from friends who knows I'm not making any this year.

Hi Mel,

Don't worry you are not outdated. I also seldom see this kuih lopes. If you get to find it, it usually come in triangle shaped.

Hi Kimmy,

I think it should be origin from Malay. Not only lucky, you are a nice person and your friends wanted to share with you their joys.
