So a new day beckons in the land of ‘makan’ (eating). Being consistent with my pig like abilities, this was another late slumber as I finally got out of bed around noon.
If you haven’t seen my blog on Malaysia Day 1, go check it out first.
Let’s get on with the food adventures.
Just before I was getting ready to sleep last night, my sister in law knocks on the door with some late night snacks. The wife was busy working on the laptop (I know we are supposed to be on holiday but work is always there, like a little bug eating away at the back of your brain). So naturally, and very unhealthily, we snacked. And when we woke up today, we snacked again before lunch.
So what do you after snacking? Go and eat more of course! We headed off to my favourite ‘nasi lemak’ restaurant in Uptown. Now for those who don’t know, nasi lemak is a traditional malaysian dish comprising of a scented rice served with sambal, fried chicken, peanuts, cucumbers and other condiments to your liking.
With our stomachs full, we went walking around the shops around Uptown. Whilst the wife and mum-in-law headed off for some shopping, I paid a visit to one of my favourite vape shops (Panda Vape – but perhaps more on this later in another blog).
Then we headed to a ‘pasar malam’ (night market) in SS2 for a stroll. I know its not yet night time but the shop vendors were just setting up.
After that, headed back home to rest for a couple of hours. Watched some Netflix (am watching ‘Designated Survivor’ at the moment – love it. Can’t help imagining Kiefer Sutherland breaking from his Presidential role into bad ass 24 Jack Bauer. Doubt it will ever happen but my fingers are crossed anyway). Then it was time to eat again.
After wolfing all that down, we rested our bellies a bit more until it was time to go out for a few drinks at the local bar (there was a rather annoying hostess that kept trying to make the wife and I neck down our drinks – but I suppose she was a bit drunk and just doing her job). So what typically follows some beer? Late night mamak of course! My favourite, Nasi Kandar. This is a very popular Malaysian type of dish which is basically rice topped with your choice of different curries, meats and vegetables. The wife went for a roti (something like a fried dough pastry) served with some chicken curry.
And now I’m back home, regretting all the unnecessary calories I have injected my gut with and telling myself that I should wake up early and go for a run. I hope that happens. But then again, I was thinking the same thing last night and that did not go exactly to plan.
