Selamat 1HariRaya, Ketupat Didahulukan, Rendang Diutamakan..


First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my Muslim friends:

“Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir Batin.”

Me wishing 1Malaysia - Selamat 1HariRaya, Ketupat Didahulukan, Rendang Diutamakan. Erk, stammered a bit at the first part because, I’m a bit allergic to this ‘1’ thing *chuckles*

I’m sorry I didn’t extend my Raya greeting earlier but Raya is for the whole month of Syawal and today is only the 4th day of Raya, right? I just came back from a long weekend at my hometown, Sarikei. I went back on Thursday morning with Goolooloo tagging along. She was dropping by Sibu to see her beloved boyfriend.

We started our ‘balik kampung’ journey at 6am, reached Sibu around 11am. The road was pretty clear so I had the road all for myself, all the way up. That explained the 5 hours drive from Miri-Sibu. I stopped for lunch in Sibu before continuing my journey to Sarikei.

I spent my time in Sarikei like how I normally do it when I’m back home. Pigging on food, (my puasa effort during the fasting month went down the drain), watching tv and meeting some friends.

Oh, I met up with Alice‘s bro in Sarikei. It was kinda funny. I was having my kampua at Hiek Lik Cafe when I saw a familiar looking guy came in with a red helmet on his hand, sat down across me and ordered what else but kampua.

Infamous kampua at Hiek Lik Cafe. Arguable the best kampua in Sarikei πŸ˜‰ No, kampua is not kolo mee. Kampua > Kolo Mee. HAHA! (Image source: S-blog)

I didn’t go and greet the guy because I was unsure and there wasn’t any telling sign that the guy would know me. So, I gobbled down my tasty kampua and went back home. When I checked my Facebook status:

Bongkersz Bong is having kampua at Hiek Lik cafe. Yum Yum.” 19 September at 11:31 via Selective Twitter Status

I saw a comment:

Jimmy Ling oi taukeh!!!!!i think i saw u this morning but i wasn’t sure if it was u! are u still in sarikei? pergi lim teh?” 19 September at 12:05

He gave me his phone number and we met for breakfast cum lunch at Glory Cafe the next day. Hey nice meeting you mate! All the best for your future undertakings! *wink!*

I’ll just end this post with some photos of food only available in Sarikei!

Asam Tom Yam Noodle with Big Ass Prawns at Glory Cafe. Alexallied did a little review on this awesome delicacy before πŸ˜‰

Roti Kahwin at Aik Seng Cafe. Your tiny puny Roti Kahwin is a no match against our awesome Roti Kahwin *smugs* Even our burgers are bigger than yours! Bwahahahahahahaha! (image source: S-blog)

ps: I just realised that, instead of putting up ketupat or rendang photos, I put up a photo of kampua with char siew (barbecued pork meat). *sweats*. Β Please don’t get offended. Photos are for illustration purpose only hehe.

pss: I was busy visiting houses with my partners in crime. Let’s see if there are awesome photos for me to put up on this blog later.

    Your food pics always have a decadent quality…lol

    Soon it will be Deepavali so it will be 1 Deepavali, Mutton 1st, Beer now.

    The amount spent on mutton and beer during deepavali is uniquely Malaysian.

    When you drive by a dead skunk in the road, why does it take about 10 seconds before you smell it? Assume that you did not actually drive over the skunk.
