Nasi Lemak Day

One of the reasons why it’s good to be home –

Nasi Lemak

Pure deliciousness

One of the reasons why it’s good to be at Fleishman-Hillard KL –

A pile of tasty nasi lemak up for grabs on an otherwise uneventful Thursday morning at work

Nasi Lemak Day at FHKL

Mm.. what a delicious Thursday

If you don’t know what nasi lemak is, you’re missing out on a cornerstone of Malaysia’s heritage. Think: rice soaked in coconut cream, then steamed with pandan and ginger to creamy, aromatic perfection. Serve with a side of sambal sotong and sambal kerang (a spicy taste-explosion of chilli sauce cooked with cuttlefish and cockles). And to top it all off, crunchy fried anchovies, a fried egg (yolk still slightly runny), roasted peanuts and crisp cucumber slices to take the edge of the heat.

Mmm.. so good.

    you should publish something on BKT one day. Pork simmered to perfection… coated with multiple herbs and spices that would certainly make your mouth water with ecstasy…… etc etc.

    YES! I WANT PLEASE! I’m a Malaysian as well but currently living overseas. And my no.1 thing to look forward when I go back home is the FOOD. Laksa. Nasi Lemak. ABC. Satay. Mee prawn. I MIGHT LIST ALL OF THEM LOL. And these are one of the things that makes me miss home despite all the negativity that’s been happening.
