is not Japanese, as what we assumed when it was served, but is Hokien for 'old times' taste' as how I would translate it.
We were attending a wedding dinner in Serdang, Kedah when this was served as dessert. It came in a flattish polystyrene box with a cover. Uncovered, it displayed 6 sections of different colours with cubes (size of sugar cubes) in each. It turned out to be 'ice cream potong' in 6 different flavours eg. durian, corn, red bean and so on.
Wedding dinners in a small town still favour 'the more the merrier' with noisy karaoke, though with Astro winner as one of the performers. The more I attended big dinners, the more I find them meaningless because people came for the dinner, most times not feeling connected to the event.
