SABAH: Bun Hock Bakery & Confectionary

Unique to Sandakan, the Cantonese name for Sandakan’s famous UFO Tarts is actually “ngau si dui”. It certainly does not sound flattering as the direct translation means “cow dung pile”! 

These tarts are not tarts per se as the base is actually a thin butter sponge cake. On top of this is meringue enclosing a yellow centre of eggy custard. Quite a number of Chinese bakeries in Sandakan town offer these cute tarts and their presentation differ from bakery to bakery.


Instead of meringue, some use whipped cream (like the ones in Bun Hock Bakery) while others pipe a cross on top of the custard. There’s a fusion of tastes and textures at work here – spongy vanilla-tinged cake, creamy eggy smooth custard in the centre and light fluffy cream (or meringue) by the side… all in all, very yummy with a cup of hot tea!

Infineon opens Austria plant early in chip capacity boost

VILLACH, Austria: Germany's Infineon opened a 1.6 billion euro ($1.9 billion) plant in Austria on Friday, boosting its ability to supply power chips for cars, data centres and renewable power.

Infineon is adding capacity as global semiconductor supply chains remain under extreme stress, with most leading carmakers being forced to idle production due to chip shortages.

The Villach factory, ready three months early, will make chips on 300 mm wafers thinner than a human hair, operating in tandem as a 'megafab' with an existing German plant in Dresden.

"Our timing in adding new capacity couldn't be better, considering growing demand for power-management semiconductors," CEO Reinhard Ploss said before an opening ceremony with Austrian Chancellor Sebastia
