Uncle operates an Ais Kacang stall from a humble stall in Jelutong, Penang. According to this netizen’s post, she got to experience Uncle’s hardworking attitude first-hand. Here is her story. Dropping by slightly after 6 pm for Ais Kacang, she finds out that Uncle was already packing up for the day.

As she was leaving, the kind Uncle called out to her, asking her to wait a little bit and that he can still prepare some Ais Kacang for her. Soon, Uncle took out an ice block and some red beans from his house before he started churning the ice and began making Ais Kacang.

Touching right? Uncle has been selling Ais Kacang for over 30 years and each packet comes with a generous amount of ingredients. He charges each packet at only RM2.50.

  1. Heart breaking. I love ais kacang as I grew up enjoying this delight. Support this hawker, please. I live in London, UK so I am unable to throw in my support.

    Ais kacang was the delight of many poor children when I was growing up in Penang. I will never forget this dessert.
