A polymer clay artist from Penang has captured the hearts of avid Malaysian foodies over her delicious and realistic looking roasted pork earrings.

Accessories store Weez Concept, owned by artist Wee Lim, posted several photos of the miniature siew yoke (roasted pork) earrings last Thursday on its Facebook page. The page said that the earrings were inspired by dishes from the popular Roasted Chef House restaurant in Subang Jaya. 

“New roasted pork earrings inspired and brooches,” its caption read. The post has been shared nearly 3,000 times, with some asking if the store was shipping the product to Hong Kong, Philippines, and even the U.S.]
