The Green Nasi Lemak




Yeap, its green!
Am I the only being sakai here for wow-ing on a GREEN nasi lemak?
smile_eyeroll

Today is my lucky day.
Started on a brand new area today and met this great pair of mother and daughter. Little did I know that I was actually kacau-ing them because they're preparing for the evening business, selling nasi lemak.

Maybe because the auntie sama-sama Hu-chew-neng (Foochow people) like or I’m too cute and adorable *puke*, she insisted that I brought home with her nasi lemak and try it.

“If nice then you introduce your friend ah… If not nice you just diam diam ah~”

So funny. Hehehehe.

She feels so much like my mum. The way she speaks those Mandarin with heavy Foochow accent and man… seriously, Foochow are great cooks! *Cough* Cos I’m one myself too! *Cough*

I guess I do look like part of them albeit my dark skin tone, people actually looked at me and said things like, “Nasi lemak, 4 packets” when I was in the middle of doing my job!

 

Those nasi lemak, really, I’d never gobbled down one whole packet of nasi lemak in just 5 minutes. Honestly, I’m not a great fan of sambal because its always too spicy for me. And I don’t know why, most sambal comes with a weird stench that I totally hate. First thing I do when eating nasi lemak, scoop off the sambal.

Sambal = Dip for the chicken

But today, the auntie’s sambal…. really, aiyerrrr… very ngam my taste lah. Not spicy, not oily, and a little sweet too.

And those greenish pandan rice, haih, the fragrant is still flowing around in my room as I typed this post. Okay la, I know a bit kua-cheong. But, I just want you all to know that nasi lemak very nice mah.

Nasi lemak costs $2 per pack, or $2.50 for a bigger portion. Totally worth very penny out of it compare to those stupid one they sell in the restaurant with no kam-cheng and small piece of shrunken chix wing due to recession.

Ask me where to get those if you’re dying to know.
LOL. Or maybe, I was the one being slow and lagging for not knowing that such nice nasi lemak has existed long ago.

When i look at the map i'm still abit blur, but when i look at the nasi lemak, ah ha! This is the nasi lemak that i love the most, or i should say not only me but my whole family, hehe. If my mum doesn't cook for the dinner, we will ring and say, 'Aunty, tapao 3 packets with extra chicken, will pick it up 15 minutes later.' =)And yes, they exist in Brunei long time ago, used to sell in Tamu Kianggeh ;o)

I thought people living in that area are mostly chinese. So, is it halal? Just curious.

Nonnie King said...

I'm not sure if the nasi lemak is halal or not... but, its a Chinese auntie who prepares it.
