I can't believe the price for the lemang and chicken rendang

As we were walking around hunting for food to take away to have for our dinner when we get back home, we came across a food stall (also belongs to Jusco) infront of Jusco supermarket. We walked nearer to have a good look at the food to purchase.

We told the promoter what we wanted. When we paid at the counter only then we realized how expensive the total of the food. Lemang + 3 pieces of ketupat nasi + 5 pieces of chicken rendang= RM45.00. Wow!! it surely was costly.

However the food tasted nice. The lemang and ketupat nasi that were cut into few pieces were fresh and soft whereas the chicken rendang was mouth watering. Although the food that we bought at that stall was not cheap but it is value for money.

What is lemang?

We always see and hear most malay houses will have lemang during Hari Raya festivals. What is lemang and how is it cooked? Cooking lemang needs lots of skills.

This delicacy comes from glutinous rice with coconut milk that is cooked in long bamboo hollow tubes, that are cooked using open air fire. Banana leaves are used to line in the tube of bamboos before putting in the glutinous rice that is soaked with santan or in English is coconut milk.

Lemang is usually served during the Malay festivals like Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Qorban. It's not easy to cook and sometimes you get those which is overcooked or turned hard at the sides of the cooked glutinous coconut rice . The lemang is normally served with chicken beef rendang or sometimes you can eat together with satay gravy.

Other than lemang, ketupat nasi daun palas is a must that the Malays will cook during Hari Raya. These triangular parcels contain glutinious rice are wrapped in palm leaves fronds called daun palas. So it is called ketupat nasi daun palas.

That is a little that I know of lemang and ketupat nasi daun palas. Thank you so much for dropping by at sapphire blu speaks her mind corner.

After having our lunch at Shakey's Pizza the four of us went to look for the roadshow of game show "Deal Or No Deal" (English version ) which is very popular at present being aired over NTV 7 every Saturday and Sunday at 8.30pm for an hour. The host of this game show is none other than Non who speaks fluent English. He is also the famous DJ of radio channel "Lite FM".

We were not sure where the roadshow would be so we went to the information counter and they told us where it would be held. We quickly rushed to the place without any longer. Guess who we met there? He was none other than the Host Non of English version "Deal Or No Deal".

I was so happy and excited to see him in person and went straight to him asking to take a few snapshots of him and asked him if he would sign autographs for us. He willingly did it with a happy heart without obligation. He is much more handsome in person compared to when he is hosting "Deal Or No Deal".

I have taken some of the pictures when I was there at the roadshow for you to view.

Yesterday I took the 9.20am flight back to LCCT. The plane was not full although it was a weekend. Maybe the passengers prefer to take the later flight as the weather in the east was so cooling yesterday morning so they thought maybe they would just take a later flight so that they could get up much later in the morning.

I did not use online check in through the internet as I have always prefered checking in at the counter two hours before the departure time. I arrived the airport at 7.30am and I was the 25th passenger who has checked in. Did not have to queue as there was so much time more before the departure of Air Asia flight AK5203.

This is my boarding pass. Seq. 25 to check in

Yess!! the newly opened Merrybrown is at the departure waiting hall. Whenever I feel hungry maybe I can have something at Merrybrown before I board the plane. This is the first Merrybrown Fastfood in Kuching.

The other side of Merrybrown. Looks nice right!!

More pictures of the departure waiting hall

The place that I need to queue later for boarding is Gate R

This will be the plane AK5203 flying to the west
