21st Day Of Puasa

I am enjoying a whole load of medicine. No problem. But now, I "mabuk ubat" already. @.@
Gotta get the swelling all better and the pain all gone before a visit to the dentist, next week. Better get my credit card ready. A trip to the dentist is not exactly cheap (plus my company so stingy, only cover RM100 per annum for dental entitlement. Scaling & polishing one time already cost that much now! @.@)

Raimie was pretty good at taking his too. Good boy. ^^ Never been hard for that boy to take his medicine. Unlike his Mommy who tends to forget (blame it on old age! wakaka)
Yesterday's buka puasa was Nasi Ambeng. Nasi ambeng is a javanese dish and you can find this dish served in the Jawa community in Banting, Bagan Datoh, Segamat, etc.  It is traditionally served on a big, round tray and shared amongst the guests. But of course, now that it is getting more commecial, you can buy them in individual packaging. ^^

What you get in a serving of Nasi Ambeng (be it individual packed or in a tray) will be white rice, fried chicken or ayam masak kicap (chicken cooked in soy sauce?), fried mee or beehun, salted fish & tempe, serunding kelapa (toasted coconut shred) and fried sambal. I tell you, Nasi Ambeng is super yummy!

Anyway, remember me telling you about Raimie's upcoming school trip? It will be in October, a week before my Putrajaya Night Marathon (yeay! No clashing with Taiping Marathon or Putrajaya too) and he will visit a homestay. The itinerary mentions learning about chips making, a visit to a Nata de Coco factory, eating Nasi Ambeng and fishing too! How cool is that? :)

    1. yalor, something new to me!! so good lah this Lina, always introduce new things to me.. so happy to know more out of the box of chinese culture only..

      Delete
    2. Yeah she taught me a lot about Muslim and Malay culture which no one shared with me. My company has more Malay colleagues than Chinese ones.

    3. Yan,
      nasi ambeng got white rice + either fried mee or beehun one. A must! :)

      SK & TM,
      Always glad to share. Like you all share your culture (and ahems ahems) with the rest of us.

      Once upon a time, I was the only Malay in my department. Now, I'm one of 4 Malays in my department of 50+ staff. xD

      Actually, other Malay would say I am very unMalay one... so dunno what I share correct or not since people tell me like that. hu~

      Delete
    4. no worries lah, i will always be the one more unMalay than you, hahahaha!! see, at least you teach me bahasa vocab so much lor..

      Delete
    5. lina, you taught us a lot about Malay food. hahahaha! I get to kote mamak, jeruk salak, laksam, lontong, and this Nasi Ambeng.

      Delete
    6. Yan mention kote mamak first in her list of Malay food she learnt! What does that say about Yan? LOL

      Jgn marah Yan. ^^

    7. nasi ambeng? maybe it was call nasi ah beng... coz ah beng doesn't know what to order so he wallop to have nasi and bihun together....
      then slowly then it call nasi ambeng...

      Delete
  3. It's always like that. Even with very good med insurance, coverage for dental procedures are very limited. On the other had, that Nasi Ambeng sure looks inviting and it's nearing lunchtime. I want one!

    1. I wish I work in banking sector. My hubby has nice dental and optical coverage. But it isn't extended to family. We are only covered for general medical under his co. ;p

  5. So this is nasi ambeng! Initially thought it was my beloved nasi lemak again~

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no lah, doesn't look like nasi lemak to me.. looks like the kuih kochi.. you know, those wrapped in banana leaves, with glutinous rice and dessicated coconut?? or maybe it's not kochi but called otherwise??

      Delete
    2. It does kinda look like kuih kochi doesn't it, at first glance? ;p

      Delete
    3. Oh ya! That one is called kuih kochi?? I always mix-up with kuih's name - sometimes they put blue coloring (from the flower) for the glutinous rice :D and its specially fragrant!

      Delete
  6. Your medicine, wow so colorful - got green, yellow, strip one, long one, kakaka!

    You're good, you know? Can tahan the pain for so many days. For me, I would straight away head to the clinic and ask the dentist to do whatever he want to ease my pain. Period.

    1. I went for the one that made my life easier. Legend Inn.

      Hotel Perdana asked me to call for reservation even though I e-mailed all my details to their reservation e-mail. So mah fan!

      Delete
    2. I didn't Hotel Perdana is so fussy, cannot do online, then why bother having reservation email?

      Legend Inn is good, in the heart of Taiping town. You can find lots of halal food within walking distant :D

    3. I fell in love with SSL Traders service though. They e-mailed me that they are fully-booked. Then, they called me 3 times to inform and check whether I want to change dates. So very very helpful. & talking to te girl there, is like talking to a staff at a posh hotel in KL. Le Meridien standard one!

      Now, you know why I give souvenirs to hotel reception. ;p

    4. Happened to me too, at that MV dentist. The filing the lady dentist did must not have been proper as I got that sensitive sensation at the same tooth just a few weeks after. Some more charge so high.
