Nasi Lemak....

Malaysian enjoys eating and the eating culture in this country is 24/7. Among the favourite is Nasi Lemak; one of the Malaysian specialities. It is served from breakfast time through lunch to Dinner. It is a traditional Malay kampong food that had stood with times and continues to be as popular today. It is not only made for home consumption but can be found in stalls and restaurants. It is also served at buffet at major hotels.  In some restaurant one can order al a carte and be served in various styles. There are also the simple one that is wrapped in Banana leave or put in plastic containers and sold at stalls and restaurant.  In whatever way presented it is still as tasty and nutritious. It is a simple food of rice cooked in coconut milk and served with its own special sauce [sambal]. It is eaten with boiled egg, sliced cucumber, crisp fried anchovy [ikan bilis] and fry peanuts; a nutritious combination indeed.  Above is a home made Nasi Lemak that my spouse prepared from time to time for the family and everyone love it. Last week when we went for a picnic at a friend's country home in Serendah she decided to prepare it for everyone at the brunch that Sunday. Everyone loved it. 

Have a nice day.

A Wedding....

Saturday 13, 2014 was a beautiful day. We had decided to go to a wedding reception in Bentong. The invitation was from 11.30am to 4pm; so we decides to leave the house at 12 noon. I drove the Honda taking the MRR2 and soon found that the traffic was heavy. It was normal to see heavy traffic on Saturday but today it was exceptional; perhaps because of the long holiday at the weekend. I took it easy and drove the Honda and found the traffic was really heavy up to Bentong. Usually it would take us just forty five minutes to get to Bentong but today it takes us almost two hours. We drove on and eventually got to the venue of the wedding reception. There we soon meet many friends and relatives who had arrived earlier. It was really nice to get to meet many of them in one place. That is one reason why it is always good to go to a relatives wedding reception. It soon turns out to be a gathering of relatives and it was fun. Above is an image of my spouse meeting her relatives in the bride's parent’s house. It was such a wonderful moment in time. 

Have a nice day.
