Our recent holiday "FOOD".........

Vacation time was the only time we obtained passport to indulge & savour as much as your stomach could possibly accept & process!!! We definitely did not missed out. Huby was extremely excited going back to AS having been far away from his hometown where lots of good food he used to eat during his childhood life could be found..........
I would say.... though most of the food in AS could also be found in other part of the country, but i still reckon that the flavour was somehow varied from those i used to eat here in PJ/KL!!
One classic example was the wan tan mee........it was like mushroom, can be found everywhere. But those from the AS was white in colour as opposed to those black colour in the southern states. Despite the white look was tasteless but it was in fact very yummy!! Oooh ya, furthermore, the people there don't called it wan tan mee but kai si mee instead! The below kai si mee was the one which huby used to eat for 10 years plus. Initially i didn't quite believe him but when we reached the stall, the old aunty could recognised him & they both chatted like long lost friend......then i have no reason not to trust him!

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?

Most of huby's favourite meals was found at places like the above.....small & old hut with many years of history!!


Next, i'll moved on to home cooked food. Huby's hometown in Kuala Kedah was actually only 5 minutes motorbike ride to the KK-Langkawi port. The port was where the "super fresh" seafood could be found. Whenever we were back, my in-law would pampered us with these fresh seafood. This time, even my brother-in-law was thoughtful.....he happened to be there when the fishing boat just arrived at the port with loads of catch of the day. And there it goes, he grabbed home BIG BIG prawns, crabs, squids & fish too. SIL cooked sweet & sour crab, soya sauce prawn & MIL asked the neighbour to cook the sambal prawns which were extremely delicious !!!

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 !!!

So, isn't that a terrible indulgence that we have had??? Time to let the stomach rest & recuperate......
