Tonight Asma' and I went to a Halawiyat Shop near her apartment. She wanted to buy for me "Kinafah", a type of Halawiyat that tastes so creamy and sweet.... Orange in colour and they springkle some ground pistachio on it.
So, off we went to the store around 8:30pm. Not so many people around, and most of the stores are already closed.
Near the Duwar Kubbah
Asma' apartment is situated in an area that has a trademark "Duwar Kubbah". Duwar means roundabout (never thought in Middle East has roundabouts like Shah Alam!!! I think Shah Alam is the only city in the Klang Valley that has so many roundabouts) and Kubbah because there is a small monument like kubah in the middle of the roundabout.
In front of the Halawiyat Shop
In the Halawiyat Shop.
In the Halawiyat shop, there is a very big poster of King Abdullah and Queen Rania with their children. I like the poster so much because it portrays the king and queen in a very informal way and happy family. Not like most the posters of our Sultans and Agong here, what we can see usually in a very formal way, with very heavily jeweleries and all the medals...
This is KINAFAH.
Nicely packed halawiyat.
Asma' eating the Kinafah.
I still can imagine the sweeeeeeeet taste of Kinafah.... took sometime to finish just a piece of it. Have to drink a bottle of mineral water after that.
In another Halawiyat shop near the Duwar Kubbah.
Bought 2 kg of Halawiyat to bring home to Malaysia.
It was so windy and cold. So we didn't stay long outside, besides there were not so many people strolling along the street.
