Cute Animal Figures Biscuits

I bought these cute biscuits for my little toddler who took some time to look at the animal figures before eating them. Well, I guess he is curious about the animal shape in the biscuits! My eldest son sorted out the ten types of animals like owl, bird, cat, tortoise, rhinoceros, chicken, swan or maybe duck, elephant, fish and rabbit on the plate. My mom would buy this biscuits for my elder son whenever we visited her during the early days when she was stronger and able to go to the wet market all by herself. How time flies, I can still remember vividly the little biscuit and fruit shops in the Butterworth New Ferry Road wet market that sells this type of biscuit and I would be as happy as a lark whenever my mom buys some for me. These rows of shops are no longer there except the structure that hosts the wet market which is still being occupied by morning market traders. It seems like with a blink of an eye, my mom and dad are already in their eighties and I would go back to visit them as often as I could so that they will get to see their grandchildren. Maybe I will get some of these animal figures biscuits in Butterworth and compare the taste with the one I bought from KL. My little toddler will be the judge of the animal biscuits tasting. LOL!

Eunice : Wah scary leh, bite of leg and head first, ha ha ha!

Mei Teng : I should have take the picture from the top so that the figures would be clearer! LOL!

Claire : Ya, agree 10cent can buy biscuits last time, ha ha ha, now it cost me RM2 per packet. It is like the price increase 5 to 10 cent every year. I think by the time our children become parents it will be RM5 per packet.....inflation moving too fast leh! pengsan, opps!

ladyviral : They should have start making dinosour ones or else modern kids might not want to eat them, ha ha ha!

Josephine : Looks like everyone have tried this when they are young....now they should upgrade the shapes to maybe HP, computer, thumb drive.....ha ha ha!

Eugene : Ha ha ha, horse shapes one, pity the those who are Dragons......no Dragon shape ones leh! ha ha ha!
