All the way from the Thai border to Singapore,then drive from South to North.Not along expressways but via all the back roads and see the real Malaysia.Falcon,when I get back to Malaysia,I'll look you up.I reckon we could find some real fun and enjoy the History along the way

Sounds good, Jim. You get to see more of the country by taking the back roads. Besides, you will get to taste the real local food rather than in the big restaurants or malls. Bring the camera along.

Hi Jim,
The glutinous rice cooked in bamboo is called 'Lemang'. It is usually sold by the roadside during Hari Raya. However, you still can get it in certain markets anytime of the year. I think I see it being sold everyday at the Jaya Jusco in One Utama complex or at Mid Valley megamall.

Hi Joe,
I remember those lemang that were sold in the old central market (before the renovation) by the Malay vendors, and there were many more varieties of goodies available during the fasting month for the convenience of those who 'buka puasa' at sundown. In recent years, I was told there are also a great deal of changes in this aspect of the food business during Ramadan. In addition to the kuih muih and other assortment of Malay delicacies that are sold by the food stalls, many restaurants also offer special buffet to cater to the 'buka puasa' crowd. Have you ever tried any of these 'buka puasa' buffet? Are they any good?

Hi Ken,
I have attended some of the 'buaka puasa' buffet and they offer a wide variety of choice besides the usual local spread.
On Hari Raya day, my neighbour serves wonderful nasi beriyani with rendang (Boyanese style) with beef and another being horse meat. I can't take the horse meat because I find it too heaty and tough so I go for the other delicacies.

Horse meat, rabbit meat, deer meat, pigeon meat - they are cute, beautiful and so timid. Tak sampai hati nak makan lah. Sad

We still can get good lemang in KL easily but not good 'Pulut Udang' (glutinuous rice with 'udang kering' filling and wrapped with banana leaves). Love those 'Pulut Udang' sold in one of the many Malay stalls along Jalan Tanjung Bungah (just before Penang Swimming Club if we travel towards Batu Feringgi). Everytime we intended to buy those piping hot and tasty 'Pulut Udang' back to the hotel room to savour with the hotel room's coffee or tea but then the aroma of those piping hot 'Pulut Udang' was so 'wangi' that we 'tak tahan' and ate them immediately after getting into car after buying. Smile The last few trips when we were in Penang, we couldn't find the stall. Not sure if it has relocated or the Pak Cik has stopped selling those yummy 'Pulut Udang'. Sad

hello Orange, I think those stalls were just before the Chinese Swimming Club. The Penang Swimming Club is a bit further up. The most famous of those stalls was the "tomato rice" but it has since closed because the mother was too old to cook anymore. Due to forthcoming development by UDA, those stalls have been compensated and moved elsewhere in Tanjong Tokong.

Hi Orange.
If you have seen the damage,to the land,that Rabbits can do you would feel differently.I have shot countless of the creatures and they are good eating,Chinese Style,Indian Style,English Style and the best Italian Style.Here,in Australia,they fed a whole generation through the Great Depression.In fact I know one old Bushie who told me his Mother used to feed the Family Ferret stew once a month to clear thier systems of all the Rabbit they had eaten,but I think he may have been having a lend of me,he also told me that in the country town he came from the fishing was so good you had to hide behind a tree to bait the hook or the fish,upon seeing the hook,would leap from the water and impale themselves on it.I am pretty sure he was having a lend on that one

I watch a program,on Australian Television,called LandLine.A very interesting program about Farming,Agriculture and Life on The Land.Last weekend it was about Rabbit Farming.Rabbit Meat,in the markets, ln this Country is not cheap,yet,if you know where to go,for the price of a .22 Cartridge,I think some 20cents or so.I have to admit it is a long time since I bought them,preffering to reload my own 12Guage.But what really took me by surprise was that,what are called Pipis,in Australia and used to be used for bait,known as Siput in Malaysia.Sell for A$48.00 a kilo for human connsumption and are now being farmed.My Wife used to catch them at the SpringTide and,well cleaned,are very good eating.My Wife was right when she used to say Australians throw away the best of food

To reload empty or fired cartridges with powder and shot,a cheaper alternative to buying factory ammunition.Rimfire or .22 amunition cannot be reloaded

haha Orange, this little guy is indeed a VVIP who can be downright unreasonable at times. He wanted to board the train but we weren't prepared to make a trip to anywhere! So we had to make a couple of threats to him and one of them was to mail him back to Penang if he is naughty.
