Suki Jezz way in break fast 'Buka Puasa'

My way of break fast 'Buka Puasa'

2nd August 2011 – Since the month of Ramadhan had already started, I had been wanted to rush into the Malay bazaar or the night markets, where the Malays start selling their food as early as 3pm, this is what I do when I was young, running to the stalls and see what I could buy with my RM 2-3. I always have the same sentence in my mind, “tiga kuih satu ringgit!” (it means 3 light finger food for RM 1). Well, I do not think can get such price with so many kuih anymore.

I grew up in a Malay area, so I missed the Malay food a lot. The kakak from the restaurant will always come and smiled at me: “ Datang untuk beli kuih ke?” (Come to buy your favorite food again?) I replied: “ Ya, ya, ya!” she was also being kind enough to tell me the name of the kuih that I like, so that I can remembered.

not to be missed, the tomyam soup

There was also the moment when I pass by the Lemang Stall, and immediately I stop, and feel so excited seeing the lemang bakar and the packets of rending that I will be buying. There was once when I was at setapak, the Malay guy pitied on few of us, as we were the TARC students, but we were planning to share to buy the lemang and rending (our pocket were pretty dried out at that point of time); and in the end, he smiled and gave us three more packets of rending, I said thank you so many times, that I almost forgot to take the food when we were leaving.

There was once, the one and only, where the Malay stall serve porridge (bubur), it was somewhere at Gombak or Selayang, where I go there and crave for the white porridge (because I am not a fancy rice eater, weird huh?), and I will being a weirdo asking every Malay stalls I stop by whether they serve porridge or not. All of them shake their heads, and I moaned for a while.

My hungry housemate
And so now, here I was, stranded at Puchong. Well, not many Malay food I can get, not many nice Malay food I would say, I tried all kind, most of them, it is either just the normal one, or rarely you can find any Malay restaurant at here. I used to go to Melawati, Setapak, and Gombak, there were the places I miss eating malay food so much.

Finally, I stopped by at this malay stall,Puchong Jaya. it was opened by my Thailand friend, with a mixture of Thailand and malay cuisine, I shall say, it come in quite handy. So, I and my housemate go in the middle of the night, and I managed to order my favorite food after finish my gym workout. And here it goes!
