In our scorching hot weather,
Nothing tastes better,
Than a cool ice kacang,
The dessert with its irresistible charm.
The thirst -quenching concoction,
Favourite dessert of our nation,
ABC it’s fondly called,
Ais batu campur it is known to all.
A mixture of red beans, cendol, grass jelly and sweet corns,
A mountain of shaved ice drizzled with gula melaka or gula apong,
A final topping of evaporated milk or coconut milk,
A flavour smooth as silk.
Wickedly refreshing and tantalising,
Invigorating and revitalising,
When we think about quenching our thirst,
ABC will pop into our minds first.
