I guess she was waiting for the bus or taxi as she sat reading in the corner. The bag of groceries beside her showed that she had done some shopping before waiting to go home. Sorry for the lack of posting and comments for the past few days. I have not been feeling well. Hope will be able to resume blog visiting soon.
These were students from the nursing faculty of a local college. Seems like they were waiting for their chartered coach to come pick them up. The private college is new but attracting many students with their medical related courses. It must be affordable too. The phone booth beside the bus stop was stuck with all the advertisement from money lenders. With the high penetration of mobile phone in this country, not many will use the phone booth.
When a driver 'misbehaves' at a parking lot, normally the punishment comes fast. This is the first time I am seeing this type of mobile clamps. The car was parked in the middle of the road. Therefore before the clamp is released, the little wheels on the clamps allow the car to be pushed somewhere else. The fine is usually RM 50.
Nasi Lemak literally means Fat Rice. Although it is high in calories, the dish is not cooked entirely out of fat. The rice is in fact cooked with coconut milk. Pandan leaves are added to give an added fragrance. The dark gravy beside the rice is what we call sambal. Some prefer extra hot sambal and some prefer it with a little sweet taste. Besides boiled egg, nasi lemak is eaten with fried anchovies and peanuts and slices of cucumber. The photo was taken at a cafe where fried chicken and keropok is added as well. Nasi lemak is one of the top 5 favourite breakfast of Malaysians. If you happen to meet any Malaysians in your country, try asking them which home food they missed the most. I'll bet Nasi Lemak will come out top of the list.
