On one particular nite, even after our dinner, huby did not want to miss out eating his fav nasi kandar (sell only at night).......apparently the most famous in AS! As the first 2 days we were in AS was Raya, the stall was closed. So on the 3rd day when the bis resumed, people was like crazy queuing up long just to get a bite of the nasi kandar. And my huby was one of those crazy brat. Imagine that our stomach has to endure the below pack of nasi kandar at 10p.m. ...... u wouldn't know how the feeling of guilt nearly killed me !!! Yet, i felt satisfied & happy joining my huby eating wor....sei mou/die or not?
This time we even had the chance to eat HOME GROWN fruit. The below nangka was plucked from the back yard. FIL was exceptionally thoughtful.....as i was asking him if there was any ripe mango at the backyard (which he used to bring down to KL), he went & plucked the nangka instead. There he goes....went demonstrating his nangka surgical skill & i was there helping him extracting out the fruit which was so sticky to the hands but yummy & sweet !! Sean like it so much but not my fussy Scot though.
Finally featured was the RAYA food......boy.......i felt myself so lucky!! It was such a long time i had a chance to eat kuih raya bcoz no malay friends anymore lar!!! But back in AS, my in-laws were surrounded by malay folks. Whether they are purely neighbourhoods/ customers/ suppliers/ business friends, what i see majorly was of malay races. So in-law's house was like having raya celebration.....full of raya goodies which were gift of courtesy. Authentic ketupat with sumptuous fish & prawn sambal, rendang chicken & beef, muruku & other cookies were seen lying around the table !!!
