Big Big Pau in Selandar, Melaka

While Superhero W was away holidaying in his hometown, Sabah, Superhero S decided to fly back home to Malacca. As my Superhero Mum is a super outgoing mummy, she would always organize little little trips here and there with her gal pals for makan-ing sessions. So you see, the makan-ing habit in us is purely genetic! Haha. :p

So on one fine day, Superhero Mum decided to bring my Superhero Bro, myself and two of her close friends to this place called Selandar, somewhere in Malacca. To be honest, despite having spent most of my entire life in Malacca, I've never known the existence of one such place before this trip took place. It's actually the hometown of one of my Superhero Mum's gal pals who came along for the trip.



A galaxy far, far away from KL or even Malacca town itself, Selandar is in fact a very small town near Jasin if I'm not mistaken. You see, I seldom travel beyond the town area! Haha. This little town is, according to my Superhero Mum's friend, very famous for their Big Big Paus or Tai Pau. Haha. As it has been years since I last downed a tai pau, this is of course very good news for me! *grins* Nyam nyam...




Situated somewhere in this really tiny and peaceful town is this rather old-looking coffee shop. Superhero Mum and her gal pals started approaching the shop in a hunt for their much-loved, tai paus!



And the tai paus arrived!
OH, just look at these beauties...! So fluffy and steaming hot.



Yeah, baby yeah! Superhero Mum couldn't resist trying to bounce her fingers off one of the tai paus. Haha.



Now, you can drool...



One bite and it's truly heavenly. Very juicy and it's packed with so much porky that makes you so wanna scream, "OMG!". This is the thing I love about the foodie in small towns. They tend to be very generous with their ingredients and guess how much is this beautiful tai pau? Only RM2...! *jumping happily*



And believe it or not, my Superhero Mum and her gal pals totally sapu-ed every single choi pau (vegetarian pau priced at RM1) and most of the tai paus sold here in this shop! They started taking orders from their other gal pals before the journey even began and at the end of the day, all of us went back happily with close to 50 paus in my Superhero Bro's car. OMG.

Just 30-45 minutes drive from Malacca town, it's really refreshing indeed to see the countryside in Malacca. The journey there takes us past the Durian Tunggal dam, oil palm plantations left and right and a whole lot of durian and rambutan trees. Amazing...
