2014.11.06 | 椰漿飯說

[Volume 9 Issue 11, #1962]
On Enjoying the Most Basic Nasi Lemak..
Basic Nasi Lemak, Nasi Lemak Biasa
我唔係一個愛飯之人, 我可以幾日冇飯落肚.. 而且, 我尤其冇辦法七朝八早就食飯當早餐, 包括好多人都認為係最佳早餐嘅肉骨茶, 唔好意思, 真係冇興趣.. 或者話, 我唯一會當早餐嚟食嘅飯類, 係我哋嘅「全民食物」--椰漿飯之外還是椰漿飯.. 我記得以前我好愛加飯家餸加料, 成座山咁先滿足到我.. 不過依家我就會選擇最基本嘅椰漿飯, 求其有飯有蛋有sambal辣椒就得了.. 我想話, 很多時候, 最簡單嘅嘢可以係最好的, 最基本嘅嘢可以俾到我哋最大嘅滿足..
上面嘅蕉葉椰漿飯, 可以話係我試過最好食嘅其中一個.. 喺怡保路五條石國聯花園88茶餐室嘅一個小檔口, 一包賣RM1.50, 兩包不是問題.. :p
i am not a rice person, i can survive without rice for days.. and i am especially "unable" to eat rice as breakfast in the morning, that includes bak kut teh that many would consume as an ideal breakfast, but no thank you really.. the only rice i take for breakfast is probably our "national food", the nasi lemak and nasi lemak only.. i remember i used to order extra rice and sides and condiments to go with my nasi lemak, i was only satisfied with a huge portion.. however i now prefer the most basic nasi lemak biasa, just rice with egg and sambal.. i would say, at times, the simplest thing can be the best and the most basic thing can make us feel most satisfied..
the simple and basic but very delicious nasi lemak wrapped in banana leaf above is one of the best i have eaten.. RM1.50 a packet from a little stall at Kedai Kopi 88, Taman Kok Lian, Batu 5 Jalan Ipoh.. two is not a problem~~ :p

    2. Me too, I can live my life without rice. Even when I take rice, I take only 2 spoonful the most.

      I agree with you, simplest things is the best. I like this sentiment a lot.

    4. Nasi Lemak, my jin jin likes, my besties likes, I like so so only. Though it is small packet like this one, but the santan and the carbs still fattening la! Once in a while, no problem la!
      I usually tumpang makan when Jin Jin having nasi lemak. I seldom have nasi lemak all to myself, even a small packet like this. Unless people belanja me.

    5. By the way, I just saw that I have got the best improvement award in October chart, clap, clap, clap to myself again. I will come back again to see this Nasi Lemak, at the mean time, I need to be busy with GST project. Sigh!

    6. Actually at my hometown, there are a few places selling nice Nasi Lemak too. Mostly are Malay stalls. Long queue, most people queuing up are Chinese. Hehehe! I wonder why also.

      Delete
    7. Wah! Wah! This Feather Queen of Taiping chopped & pancut first spot!! You won't eat Nasi Lemak, the whole world knows that too. Your weight will balloon and you will cry buckets of tears.

      Chinese definitely queue up at the Malay Nasi Lemak because the Chinese often made lousy Nasi Lemak esp in KL. The only Chinese Muslim who make the best Nasi Lemak will be at Village Park! Even Tun M always dropped by to eat there and sat by the road side or 5 foot ways ~ no VVIP treatments for him. Hihihi

      Delete
    8. Anay sure knows me well. I will cry buckets of tear especially when I run so much every day and my weight isn't dropping any.

      Delete
    9. yeah, you are right Yannie, really not so healthy so I also cut down nasi lemak already, also because of the spiciness and oiliness, my stomach cannot quite take it.. anyway, there are times when I crave for it, and this is when small little packet like this will do for me.. no more tambah this and tambah that until like a mountain high (like I used to) nowadays, haha!!

      Delete
    10. am a rice person. One day tarak eat rice will feel like lembik liao ...same like Ah Hua leh

      But true leh..Nasi lemak can be very fattening. last time i ate nearly daily...can see my weight went up very fast

      Delete
    11. Wah, 稀客! Today Yannie got first sip!! Good good!

      I am a rice person too! But I can survive without rice also la! ;)

    12. My BFF knows me well. I'm a rice person and especially LOVE nasi lemak! Whenever Yannie goes out for breakfast with Jin Jin, she surely tapao one pack for Ah Hua. I'm so blessed *touched*

    13. haha, one day no rice and become lembik?? then must be one of those "rice bucket"?? hehehe, just kidding lah..

  4. Happiness always "made" from the simplest stuffs, some people always start their mind 先入为主, always start to think from the cons side but not stand by the other side to think about it which also easy to make them confuse in the end!! 当是越复杂的就要想得越简单!

    3. Yah, that's very nice, that's I always purposely go there to eat, but stall very weird one, she always open stall as she wants, can't predict when she wants to open, so every time just have to go there to try my luck lo!!

  5. Hello hello, good morning and salam to all bloggers.. Oohh, today is about nasi lemak post? Sap sap sui la, can comment without thinking much also, hehehe..

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ok, let’s start *scrolls up again*

      Delete
    2. So, today is about nasi lemak bungkus.. Yep, one of my favourites.. One of the reason I like nasi lemak bungkus is becoz of the banana leaf underneath, I think.. Make it more “heong” (fragrant)..

      Here, in our café, there are two types of nasi lemak everyday.. One is the nasi lemak bungkus, and another is the “paat paat” (take take – direct translation).. We call it the “paat paat” here coz we scoop and take whatever we want, in a polystyrene box.. They have rending chicken, ayam masak merah, sambal sotong, and the usual stuffs kerang, boiled egg, cucumber, peanuts, ikan bilis, telur mata..

      So usually I would go for the nasi lemak bungkus, selling for RM1.50 per packet.. If I’m feeling hungry that day, I would go for the “paat paat” nasi lemak, so that I can feast more on the rending and take more rice, add a telur mata maybe..

      Delete
    3. Other than nasi lemak, there are many types of varieties too.. Like goreng goreng stuffs – normal mee, pedas mee (with more added curry powder taste), normal mihun, tomyam mihun, loh shi fun, chau loh bak koh, fried rice, kuey teow and sometimes chau tai look mein (fatty mee).. Not bad, many varieties.. Besides that, we have assorted kuih-muih’s too… Oohh, they also have chicken porridge.. I usually go for chicken porridge or nasi lemak bungkus in the morning..

      Delete
    4. So yeah, back to your topic before I’m running too far, I also take rice for breakfast, but not fried rice.. Mostly chicken porridge or nasi lemak..

      I’m not a rice person too, and I can also go without rice during lunch time.. Most of the time, I would prefer non-rice food, like noodles or western, but if my lady boss is around, she would usually prefer rice stuffs, like “kiu soong”… Else, if we eat in the food court, I get to order what I want, like curry mee or fish head bihun.. If I’m feeling hungry, I would go for chicken rice (big) or nasi kandar for lunch..

      Seldom for nasi kandar, coz it’s not cheap.. RM10-12 exclusive of drinks for 1 plate of nasi kandar consisting of: mutton curry, fried chicken, cabbage or any vegetables and one egg or some hati (liver) maybe.. I love hati, and they put a lot of spices into it, so it’s not jelak eating 3-4 hati.. Really.. They count that as 1 serving.. Whether or not you want to eat so many, they still count it as 1 serving, so may as well you take it, rather than just asking for 1 -2 pieces..

      Usually for nasi kandar, I’ll have those that I mentioned above, and a cup of bandung ice.. Sirap bandung ice, to be exact, and the bill can go up to RM15.. *faint*.. Sometimes if I’m hungry, I’ll add on a bowl of sup kambing, and the total reaches RM22+.. Really not cheap having nasi kandar, so I might consider going for noodles like mee goreng or magi goreng..

      Delete
    5. I can go on and on, but well, scared later run out of topic, then not good lor.. Wasting people’s time reading it, or maybe wasting SK’s time reading it, teehee..

      But really, if the topic ngam me, I can write a lot one wor.. Without thinking, really.. Can really see my pattern from the way I comment hor (if you know me well)..

      Ok la, done with my granny stories.. I’m hungry already now by the way thinking of my nasi kandar, hahahaha..

      Delete
    6. Wait, did I run out of topic actually? Your post is about nasi lemak and I'm talking about liver+nasi kandar..Hmmpphh..

      Delete
    7. One day we should talk about nasi kandar. I love it! And I also love hati. My God, those spicy crispy hati I can eat quite a few.

      Delete
    8. last time I'll tambah this and tambah that because like it's not complete with just nasi lemak biasa, how silly, haha!! but now, biasa is the best lah.. nasi kandar?? I really rarely have nasi kandar leh, dunno why the dishes don't quite attract me, I still prefer "chap fan" maybe because there are more choices, or rather shall I say more variety of cooking style.. :p

      Delete
    9. Mummy Ribbon, 'paat paat', haha very cute description.

      Here also got such style, but usually this style the nasi lemak comes up not cheap one, don't take sotong or fish, else sure exceed RM 6, but of course depends on stalls also la.
      There's a Chinese couple here selling nasi lemak at night, usually after 9pm, very action one oo, like 'mmm yao zou' like that one, sometimes even after 10pm, but many people like to 'pong chan' one wo, they say very nice, to me, okok only. And not cheap also. They sell until like 12am like that then 'sao tong' liao.

      Delete
    10. I seldom see nasi lemak in those "chap fan" style leh, If so
      also won't be cheap one because when it comes to "paat" myself ah, I sure will "paat" a lot one lor, haha!! like that better let the boss "paat" for me leh~~ :p

  8. I am the same as you. I also can't take rice in the morning except nasi lemak. And the nasi lemak is just like the picture , small and simple. In fact , I love the banana leaf nasi lemak the most , as it is more fragrant to be wrapped in banana leaf.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Agree, Chris! Banana leaf gives the nasi lemak a very special aroma. Makes us want to eat more :)

    2. yeah, nothing rice but nasi lemak, guess that's the charm of our "national food" huh?? and agree!! with banana leaf the nasi taste nicer leh~~

  9. Anyway , I am also cutting down on rice. Probably one serving per day as it builds up carbo and also released a lot of sugar into our system. It's better to take something light like pasta or ramen which contains lesser carbo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You call pasta or ramen as less carbo? I think you better drink plain water as replacement meals as it will greatly help sometimes. Hihihihi

      Delete
    2. Pasta and ramen also carbo and same category as rice. Best to eat in smaller portions or eat less often. Chris and TM, you guys are gym regulars and can afford a carbo treat every now and then.

      Delete
    3. Everything with flour is carbs. I love bread and biscuit, I take biscuits and bread moderately. We can't go totally no carbs, low carbs is considered quite good already.

      Delete
    4. rice and noodles and pasta and bread and cake and cookies and biscuits are all high carb stuffs lah, haha!! don't think they make difference.. but I have to say, it's probably healthier to eat rice than to have your noodles or pasta with lots of gravy and sauce and don't forget, noodles are made from flour ADDED with many things~~ :p

      Delete
    5. Actually Jap food especially those bento set are quite high in calories also.... But then, I believe with moderate exercise/workout, everything will be fine la!

      Delete
    6. yes very true.. japanese rice also rice, pasta and noodles all made from flour.. so the thumb of rule is, eat moderately and balanced lah, because we also need the nutrients from a variety of food right?? cannot this not eat that not eat mah~~ :)

  11. However , don't look down on this pack of simple nasi lemak. It packs a lot of calories and energy which can last you for the morning.

    1. Yes the calories and fats help to increase the cholesterol and waist line.

    3. Rice and also the santan are the highest in calories. Once in a while, one packet ok la! If every day takes nasi lemak, then have to do something about it.

    4. Yala, but once a while ok la, not that we take this everyday, hehe! If we have nasi lemak for breakfast, then eat lighter for lunch/dinner lo, balance up ma! ;)

    5. but we need calories to provide energy!! if no carbs at all, you will feel cold and I actually had gone through that before.. so we don't need to be a health freak but just eat moderately will be the best fit.. :)

  13. Good Afternoon Nasi Lemak Lovers! This is a very appetizing food that has made international headlines recently.

    I do love Nasi Lemak too and used to eat them every morning many years ago. The stall was conveniently outside my office. I ate until my pants were tight and face so round like the full moon. I stopped eating that as breakfasts and my weight went down.

    Nowadays I will eat this food probably once or twice a month only but it would be the Superior Dish from the a'la carte menu! That one is complete and fattening! Adoi.

    1. Wise decision, TM. I too suffered when eating nasi lemak everyday. Became so fat!! Am still on the journey to losing weight.

      Delete
    2. Malaysian breakfast like Nasi Lemak, Roti Canai, noodles and kuih muih are all fattening stuffs la! Western breakfast like eggs, oats, yogurts and fruit juices are less fattening and healthier actually.

      Now I know so many of us are trying to stay fit. Good to know this.

      Delete
    3. true that malaysian food can be quite unhealthy but then these are what we have been growing up with, haha!! anyway, Anay only felt his pants tighter eating nasi lemak, so he cuts down.. Thambee thinks he has to only drink water and not eat anything at all, muahaha!! how pathetic dei~~ :(

      Delete
  14. I love rice but have cut down a lot since going on a low carbohydrate diet, It has been almost four years now that I have eaten very little rice. The most recent time that I ate more than usual was when I was down with dengue. That was because I had no choice at the hospital.

    1. i have been cutting down rice too for many years, but I still never slim down!! hahaha, guess must cut down on more things already.. :p

  15. A good nasi lemak is very dependant of the santan used to cook the rice and also the sambal. With only those two criteria, a simple no frills nasi lemak is already awesome. Just top with an egg and perhaps some slices of cucumber, ah....I can eat 3 packets!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, just the very basic nasi lemak biasa will do for me now!! no need tambah a lot of things..

  16. I also can't take rice for breakfast except for nasi lemak. Somehow I have been conditioned to accept nasi lemak as breakfast food. Not BKT, not even noodles or dim sum. In Terengganu some people even eat satay for breakfast. To me, that is so weird. But my breakfast might sound weird to other people, I have meat and vegetable soup. But that is not so strange because people eat noodle soup for breakfast too. Mine is just without the noodles. It is a low carb breakfast and very filling.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess we have all been brought up to appreciate nasi lemak at any time and any meal huh?? that's why it's our "national food", haha!! as for BKT, really not fancy that any time any meal, haha!! :D

      Delete
  17. But even though a good simple nasi lemak is already so satisfying, I also love the luxurious variety. To me the mother of all nasi lemak is the Nasi Lemak Special at Village Park. It comes with chicken rendang, beef rendang, sotong sambal, egg and yummy sambal. I really want to eat that again.

  18. I'll have to say that cutting down on carbohydrates is very effective for weight loss. There was a time when I was "addicted" to nasi lemak and ate almost every day. Including donuts and karipap. My weight went up and up and up. So depressing.

    1. yes, I agree to that too!! if not for everyone, it actually works for me.. but then I love bread and cakes and cookies and biscuits, oh my, those are even more "harmful" carbs!! @.@"

  19. I am not cutting off rice or nasi lemak forever. Once I achieve my target weight, I will re-introduce these carbs back into my diet but in moderate amounts. I also won't eat them everyday. I do miss pasta and breads too. Hope to achieve my goal before year end :)

    1. we can cut down but I think its quite difficult to titally cut off huh?? anyway like you said, moderate is the best fit.. :)

  20. I agree that the simplest things can be the best. For example soft boiled eggs with a dash of soya sauce and pepper. So yummy! Or just butter on a slice of warm toast. Or noodles just simply tossed in a good sauce. It is good to be able to appreciate the simple things in life too.

    1. Phong Hong, me too, watching at my weight constantly. I want to lose another 2 kg by this year end. Because I have to allocate some space for CNY, that time sure I will put back 2 kg. lol!

      By the way, I eat overnight oats every day. Some time, when my husband takes me for breakfast, then I will allow myself to indulge in noodles.

      Delete
    2. To me, the simplest breakfast is cooking instant noodles. I am having crave over instant noodles, I can take two packets of instant noodles at one goal. But then, after I learned about the calories in instant noodles are very high, then I don't dare to take instant noodles anymore.

      Delete
    3. Yannie, your are so slim already and you want to drop 2 kg??? Alamak!!! But you are right, before CNY we need to drop some to allow for margin of error hah..hah.. CNY I can easily put on 5kg if I go free and easy. But this time, I will discipline myself :)

      Delete
    4. PH, that's my thinking too, Yannie very fit already if some more lose 2kg, then will become skeleton liao :p

      Yannie, instant noodles not just high in calories, but very hard for our liver to 'digest' also, I once read an article saying that our liver needs 32 days to fully 'digest' 1 packet of instant noodles!! :0

    5. yeah, the simplest and the most basic can be the best.. having too many additives can be too overwhelming and most of the time spoilt the thing..

      every year 2kg?? that's not enough for me lah, I think 2kg every month for a year is more appropriate for me!! muahaha~~ :p

  26. Hello Sk,

    I did not know that bkt is some people's choice of breakfast. I also cannot eat bkt as breakfast. For people who loves sambal, these small packets of nasi lemak are just right for breakfast but I usually don't eat the sambal for nasi lemak so if I buy these small packets of nasi lemak, I usually just eat the half egg and the rice that has not been touched by the sambal which is usually not much. The sambal I will leave untouched which is really a waste so I don't eat these small packets of nasi lemak because I don't want to waste the delicious sambal for someone else and waste the effort of the people who cooked the sambal.

    Normally my spouse will order nasi lemak and I will just eat the rice and chicken meat a few spoonfuls only. I agree that these small packets of nasi lemak are really delicious although simple. Jalan Ipoh is somewhere that I very seldom venture to so it is nice to see you introducing food from there.

    Have a nice Friday and weekend!

    1. I used to think that BKT is for dinner only until a friend told me that many have that for breakfast too, I was surprised!! anyway, I'm really not fancying BKT, so no comment about that, haha!! no problem if you eat this nasi lemak as they pack on the fly, so you can let the lady boss knows that you do not want sambal.. this is the same place I have the lala noodles I intriduced earlier.. :)

    2. The price is so attractive and so good that they pack on the fly and can accommodate our whims and fancies like no this and no that. Wah, really good eh.

      Delete
    3. yeah, because she owns the stall and really pack the nasi lemak on the fly.. not those already packed ones at mamak stalls.. so she can pack to your order :)

    4. mun, seems to me that you are a small eater ;)
      I am opposite from you, I prefer those rice that has sambal on it, syok! But usually I will finish whole packet la, since the portion is not much. Else wasted ma!

    5. Rice, in my opinion is suitable for lunch and dinner. But, but, nasi lemak has changed my perception. I can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and supper)!

      No, I'm not having it daily - My cholesterol isn't helping much so I try to limit nasi lemak to once every fortnight or less.

      Delete
    6. I still have not tried nasi lemak without sambal, haha!! but I really think sambal is the "soul" of the nasi lemak besides the nasi lemak, of course.. just that I have been taking less sambal than I could now.. but almost everyday nasi lemak?? no joke, that's rather not quite healthy leh~~ :)

  27. I can go with rice or without rice. Definitely not a fan tong! LOL!

  28. Yes, I think the simplest nasi lemak is the best! But sometimes, I like the more luxurious nasi lemak with chicken rendang :D

    2. at the moment in Dubai. Not much specials. Got also expensive, one nasi lemak also say RM40. "sam tung"

      Delete
    3. RM40 nasi lemak then better cook your own in Dubai. Or wait until you visit home to eat this.

      Delete
    4. haha, if in Dubai try to appreciate their food.. i've experience the same thing, while in Dubai i was so bored with their food, but now when i'm back, i kind of miss them instead!! so ironic huh?? :D

  32. I love nasi lemak but just a small portion would satisfy me. I like the traditional ones with just the sambal ikan bilis.

  35. Hello SK,

    Has comment been disabled for the dracula minion post after this? Hope you are having a great weekend! I wonder anyone's blogroll has the link to your runaway post (not supposed to be published yet but it ranaway and published itself, hehehehe).

    There was once I scheduled a post for that day but wrote another post on that day so on that day, there were two posts on my blog which is a no no in my books because I only want one post to be published a day.

    I could just keep my current post and remove my scheduled post but then an early bird has left a comment on the schedule post so I had no choice but to keep that scheduled post and remove my freshly written post. And that generated many questions when blogroll on others' blog show the removed post, hahaha.

    So this comment is meant for the post after this but written here will be out of context so do I still get points for being in topic or not? Hahaha, kiasu mode on.

    Hope you are having a good time on the hours left on Sunday.

    1. this is just a filler post to override that irritating link that points to an error message.. i will take down that filler post once the supposed-to-be post is published tomorrow morning, so don't have to open up for comments lah..

      yeah, it's quite irritating right when you accidentally published a scheduled post, and especially when you only realized it much later!! lucky i realised this, i clicked published and "oh sh*t" i didn't change the time, and so it went to appear on the blog, and immediately the link on blogroll was updated.. i hope not many saw that, now at least i have this filler post to cover that up, hehehehe~~

      hope you had a great weekend too.. Monday blue coming soon!!! muahahaha :D

    2. Yup, I've been through that situation many many times, so I tell myself must check up my blogpost before I go to sleep every night, as I always put the pictures first then set the schedule as publish but the content came in later!!

      I saw that in feedly, I count the time back, felt so weird how come you've post on Saturday, but when click there's nothing on it, so that I thought it is my feedly problem pulak, hahaha!!

    3. Apalah Thambee, if posted then leave it lah, write something new for tomorrow! ;)

    4. usually the first thing i do before writing the post will be to set the date, but that day just forgotten and when i clicked on the publish button, and i just realized - sh*t - i did not set the date, hahaha!!

      aiyoh, no lah, the post if meant for today, i don't have time and topic for a new one.. everything's planned and calculated exactly, no buffer!! haha~~ :D

  36. Good afternoon SK and all.

    LOL...i cannot go without rice for days. No energy leh if like that

    RM1.50 got half an egg not bad leh. The one in seri murni setia ala.. with one biji of hardboiled egg cost rm3 a packet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha, that's the 'sam lei zok yong' only la! Many food can substitute rice and gives energy like what SK said..
      But many people got this thinking one, my mom in law also same, if she sees us not eating rice, she will say huh why no eat rice? Where got energy like that?? Hehehe...

      Delete
    2. haha, you think only lah.. there are many other things that can give you energy leh.. yeah, initially RM1.20 but she increased the price to RM1.50, she said "harga naik sikit, tapi nasi ada bagi lebih sikit"~~ haha!!

  37. for me , my tongue die die setia and taat to the one in Seri petaling oppositeLucky Restaurant. That one let you sendiri buffet style take whatever item you want like timun, kacang bilis and etc, coz their biz too busy liao. They just give customer a packet of rice and customer sendiri scoop. Not expensive too....at least 10 years ago la...now i duno the price jor

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh really?? that sounds interesting leh.. like that i can ditch kacang but take more bilis.. you know lah, usually they mixed the kacang and bilis together so susah ask them to give only bilis and no kacang mah.. i want to try that, since you have been die die setia and taat to that for over 10 years!! must be real good!! :)

    2. Oh its like 'chap fan' style, we take our own dishes then pay.
      But here, very weird one, if this is the style, then the boss will take the dishes for you, you just tell him what you want, most stalls won't let the customer take the dishes on his own one wo! I wonder why, may be just at Taiping?
      But 'chap fan' stall ok wo, can take own rice and dishes then pay.

      Delete
    3. yeah, maybe this is one gimmick that can attract more customer?? I mean we can just take whatever we like, cos in many places, some boss don't even bother to entertain your special requests at all.. request more and kena scolded!! hahaha~~

  39. I am totally opposite from you SK, I am a big rice person! But I can survive without it for days also la, hehe! Nowadays I ate small portion of rice, and more on the dishes like veges, meats or soup, had been practising it since long time ago, after I learn that rice can be fattening (hehe biasa la kan, we female always concern about this thing one ma xD).
    But now thinking back my confinement time, my eating portion really 吓死人, one day 2 plates of rice, and it's quite a lot one (for me la), and I finished ALL of them! Confinement lady usually cooked a type of soup, with 2 more dishes, usually its greens and fish, or sometimes greens and meat, most of the time, I walliop semua habis!
    No wonder my weight striked up high after baby's fullmoon, hoho! But that time what I heard is during confinement must eat a lot, 补 a lot, that's why I finish everything. When I din't finish something, my confinement lady will ask me why? Not nice? So kinda paiseh also la, hehe.

    But actually that's not the thing. Yes we must 补 during confinement but not by eating a lot, so I must remember this during my next confinement, so that I can lose weight easily, kekeke.

    Opps sorry, macam drifted away, come back come back, hahaha!

    1. Bak kut teh as breakfast, I can have that, I mean shared la, but depends on appetite of the day also la, usually I ate half bowl of the rice only and eat more on the soup and 'liu'.
      But as brunch onwards sure no problem.

      Then packet nasi lemak like what you shared, sure no problem for me, even 2! Cause just small portion ma, hehe! And for me I must have add on sambal, yummz! And if it's really yummy, of course 1 packet is not enough! I am surprise to see KL still have nasi lemak which is RM 1.50, macam Taiping la, hehe. I thought most food are expensive at KL.
      I totally agree! Simplest thing can be the best! Even though it's not from high end restaurant!

    2. I am not a rice person but of course sometimes I do prefer rice over noodles lah, it depends on what type of choices I have actually.. but then I can survive without rice for days, I think one week is not a problem to me, haha..

      errr, me not a fans of BKT lah, dunno why.. I don't hate BKT instead I like drinking the soup, just that I don't have the craving or urge to makan.. but for nasi lemak, different lah, sometimes I will have a craving for it, and nowadays the biasa one can already satisfy me, no need to tambah things like I used to.. and then another thing is fried rice, aiyoh, I seldom can run away from that la, hahahaha!! :D
