A friendly face

nasi lemak

One of our friends from Auckland (actually our daughter’s uni friend!) who grew up in KL is here visiting her family. We met up this week. It was such a  pleasure to talk to someone who knows what it’s like to live in both Malaysia and New Zealand. We chatted for almost two hours.  I probably talked too much, not that she gave any indication of being bored! We chose a restaurant that served local fare – she wanted some Malaysian food and I chose nasi lemak, which could be considered the national dish here. Though there are many variations, nasi lemak consists of fragrant rice and a hot spicy sauce with side dishes of sliced cucumber, roasted peanuts, boiled eggs and small fried fish. However, the food was almost incidental to our very enjoyable afternoon.
