Kampong Pisang Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 32 photos

the Princess of bananas

a sweet-tasting variety

bite size, peel-off skin from tip of banana

especially for dessert

keeps well so long as skin is not broken, good source of carbohydrate

famous in Malay quatrain as follows;

pisang emas di bawa belayar..... [golden bananas brought on a voyage]
masak sebiji diatas peti.............. [one ripens on top of a box]
hutang emas bolih dibayar......... [debt of gold is payable]
hutang budi dibawa mati........... [debt of kindness is brought to death]
