I would never eat dodol when i was back home. Why eat imitation .. when you can get the real thing right..?? Well.. the times are different now.. ! the chinese have a saying.. “ma sei lok dei hang” .. meaning.. if the horse died .. you’ve to come down from the house.. and walk. Same meaning here right now.. eat the next best thing that comes along. Something so simple..and abundant in Asia.. is a gem to me. I’ve already eaten at least 3 of them so far.
