Is That All?

That's what the lady at my favourite Nasi Campur (mixed rice) stall would ask when she saw what I'd get for my lunch.
Here's the thing. I like my red meat. But generally I don't take it when I'm buying mix rice. Either I cook the meat myself or it's prepared a certain way (think yakiniku, steak, the likes). Fish - I love, but then again, for mix rice choice, I only eat catfish.

Chicken, meh. So choosy kan? Haha

My usual choice would be tempeh, ikan bilis and lots and lots of vege. Sometimes, because I got a bit "malu" at the stall lady since my tapau'ed lunch is so cheap (think RM3.50-RM4.50), I'd add more vege so it won't be too cheap. heh heh

And I always, always put kuah masak lemak on my rice. How lah to lose weight like that? All that santan for 5 days a week! @.@

p.s. Rurousha - if you must know, that's sambal ikan bilis (anchovies cooked in chilli paste & belacan) and nangka masak lemak (jackfruit cooked in yellow coconut gravy) and a dollop of sambal belacan!

    1. It's not about the quantity. She asked because I never seem to take chicken/meat. Mostly veges ^^

  5. but nowadays is getting cheap..
    you could get a snack plate for RM10 and then you can purhcase a snack plate for 50% off..
    So I normally share with my colleague.
    At the end we pay about RM8 ...
    good deal..

    1. LOL! This gadis sure eat a lot after burning lots of fat from running.

      Yup, I don't find it "itu saja" either. The mak cik is coaxing you to get more so she can charge more :p

    2. She asked "itu saja" because no chicken. No fish. No meat in there. Most times I take 3 different kinds of veges only. Sometimes eggs. Sometimes ikan bilis. Most times tempeh.;)

  16. I like rice, and I don't mind if the dishes portion is just a little.

    Every time when we go out for nasi campur, all my other colleagues would ask for "nasi kurang". Usually I keep quiet, but seeing me having extra rice, lama-lama the rice will become bukit in my tummy. Thus I start asking for nasi kurang too T___T

    1. I go for more lauk than nasi these days. But still need a little bit lah. I cannot go off rice, like SK did! xD

  17. Oh ya, no more catering for my lunch. Got many many 'eyes' watching over. Have to move on to other alternatives - cook own lunch, bring cute bento, drink plain water or starve until 5.30pm

  18. Without fail, if I spotted the sambal ikan bilis in the nasi campur stall, I sure take one. Love, love, love this dish very much.

    Actually I like ikan bilis. So when a dish has ikan bilis in it, it'll never escaped from me :p

    1. I also like. But don't cook them much at home. Hubby is not a great fan. Likewise his family. Even if I get my petai stock from my dad, it's usually sambal udang petai and not sambal ikan bilis petain nowadays. hu~

  19. Thank you thank you thank you for anticipating my questions! :D I was frowning and scribbling notes and ... ta-DA, I found my answers. PS: You know me too well. Scary. ^^

    PS: Can I have some nangka masak lemak, please?

      Your blog makes me so jealous, Malaysian food is so so so tasty. Japanese food is awesome too, but Malaysian is so so cheap too. Perfect!

      I'd offer to cook for you both, but then again I'm a bad cook.I might just put you off Malay food! LOL
