Popo Muruku - old school favourites

Brought popiah to a friend's place for lunch and she popped in some Popo muruku on the popiah before wrapping for texture and crunch. Think I can try it one day for my vegetable salad which is a modification of the Chinese New Year yue sheng dish which I love. I used to pop quite a number of this old school snack back in my growing up years and based on the packaging, Popo muruku has been around since 1975.

A baby which is the icon of the brand represents the word Popo which means baby though I always thought that Popo was closer to the meaning of Grandma (lost in translation) !  My friend says there are other flavours such as seaweed and chicken though I 've not come across these in the supermarkets.

The other person, usually Thorp, would sit on the betting table with the earpiece and a receiver, hearing the same cues that the person wearing the pc heard. "When the pc was working without any bother," Thorp says, "it labored really well." Indeed, it labored simply properly as|in addition to} it 스포츠토토 did in the lab. "We'd start out with dime chips," he says, "and single dimes would turn into piles of dimes, quite often causing a good amount of excitement, but no one caught on to what was occurring." Two years after that initial concept, the subject of roulette came up when a favorite high school instructor of his was speaking a couple of recent journey to Vegas.
