4) Add sugar and gula melaka in, adjust taste accordingly and keep stirring till suagr dissolve.
5) Then in another pot, pour coconut milk in and let it come to a gentle boil and add salt to it. Set aside.
6) To serve - drizzle coconut milk on it.
7) Any balance, pour on popsicle container and freeze it.

Notes - 

1. Because i did not soak my glutinous rice so it took me about an hour to get it cooked despite using Le Creuset pot.
2. I boiled with 5 cups of water first. The other 0.5 cup water was added a while later.
