Popiah ~ 薄饼

I had popiah for dinner today. At the popiah stall, I noticed that the stall lady was using popiah skins from two different packs.

Being the busybody curious person I am, I asked, “May I know how come you use the popiah skin from two different packages?? What is the difference between the two?”

Stunned for a moment, the lady answered, “Oh, this pack is handmade. That pack is machine made. The handmade one is thicker in texture and doesn’t tear easily whereas the machine made one is thinner. The handmade one is also more expensive. So we mix the two.”

Orh… she is probably not the owner of that stall.
今天吃了薄饼当晚餐。在薄饼摊,我发觉摊主用了两袋不同的薄饼皮来做一个薄饼。

多事的我就问了:“请问为什么你会用两个不同袋子的薄饼皮来做一个薄饼呢?这两袋的薄饼皮有什么不同?”

愣了一下,妇女回答:“哦。。。这袋子里的是手工的。那稻子里的是机器做的。手工的皮比较厚、比较Q,没那么容易裂开。机器做的比较薄,很容易就裂开了。但是手工的比较贵,所以我们就各自一张来用。”

哦。。。我想:她多半不是摊主。
