《和福甜汤圆》

冬至快乐!

冬至对于华裔同胞而言是个既温馨又有意义的日子。小时候,总是听说吃过汤圆就是大了一岁。现在,听到的则是越来越多了。有人说,不同颜色的汤圆和不同大小的汤圆代表着不同的岁数,也有人说你今年几岁就得吃下几粒汤圆。看来冬至的传说还真多呢,不同的家族似乎有不同的看法。

Winter Solstice is indeed a meaningful and warm day in Chinese cultural. When I was small, I used to hear that we grow an age older once we have eaten Tang Yuan. However, as I grow up, I am starting to hear many different stories about winter solstice. It is said that different colours and different sizes of the Tang Yuan represent different ages and some even said that you have to eat the amount of Tang Yuan according to your age. It seems like there are many different saying about winter solstice and I actually find it pretty fun to hear all the different stories..haha..


今天,特地下乔治市买了四盒汤圆,两盒白糖加两盒黑糖。其中三盒是送给朋友的,一盒留给自己。活了二十三年第一次买汤圆,才发现到原来汤圆并不便宜。这一盒小的要RM3.70,大的要RM5(可以吃一餐了),装在塑料盒的话另加RM0.50。这四盒就要了我RM16.80,不过只要想着是送给自己生命中重要的人就是值得了。

Today, I have went to Georgetown to buy four bowls of Tang Yuan. 3 bowls are for my friends and one is for myself. This is my first time buying Tang Yuan and I found out that it is actually not cheap. A small one already costs RM3.70 and a big one costs RM5. If you request for the plastic container, you will have to pay an extra RM0.50 for each container. Four bowls of Tang Yuan has cost me RM16.80, but then it is worth as I am giving it to the people who are important to me.


这些汤圆是在一摊蛮出名的《和福甜汤圆》那里购买的。而这间《和福甜汤圆》呢则是美凤茶室里的其中一个小摊。美凤茶室位于Jalan Magazine,在1st Avenue的对面。《和福甜汤圆》的营业时间是从晚上七点至晚上十一点,星期三和星期日休息。不过,由于明天就是冬至了,所以小贩们早上十一点就开始营业了。

These Tang Yuan were bought from a quite famous hawker stall, Tang Yen. Tang Yen is one of the hawker stalls in Bee Hong Cafe and this Bee Hong Cafe is located at Magazine Road, just the opposite of 1st Avenue. The business hour of Tang Yen is from 7PM to 11PM, rest on Wednesday and Sunday. However, since tomorrow is winter solstice, they have started their business at 11AM today.


从远处走着过来时,看到了档口前面站着很多人。大家都在排队等待买汤圆呢!

From afar, I can see that many people were standing in front of the hawker stall. They were all waiting for their turn to buy Tang Yuan.


这就是《和福甜汤圆》的档口啦~

This is the Tang Yen hawker stall.


如果你不想排队的话,可以到档口旁边买汤圆所需的材料自己回家搓哦。

If you do not wish to queue, you can buy the Tang Yuan's ingredients beside the stall and make it at home.


这些小贩搓汤圆的速度还可真是快啊!我搓一粒的时间足以让她们搓十粒了。虽让如此,我还是等上了半个小时,因为顾客太多了。

These hawkers made the Tang Yuan at a very fast speed. They can make 10 Tang Yuan with the time I make one. Although they are fast, yet I still have to wait for half an hour as there were many customers.


虽然看起来是个小小又不起眼的档口,但是他们是有自己的部落格和面书网页的哦!

Although it is a small and insignificant stall, yet they have their own blog and Facebook page.
