Continuing with the new idea of going through the neighbourhoods during my childhood, I decided to do one on my grandmother’s (from my mother’s side) old house and neighbourhood. Image source: Google Street.
This will be the last post on the Foodpanda food delivery service in the on-going travel to Cambodia. Of course, these list of food was not the only ones that I order online from Foodpanda but these would be the some of the interesting ones that I would not be ordering if I am using the same app back in Malaysia.

The trip to Cambodia started off rather early in the morning with me waking up early and
double triple checking everything that I suppose bring along for the long work assignment overseas. The kids were deeply asleep but just before I left the house, they were awake to say goodbye.
(McD have the both the rice and the burger but both are priced at a level I would say ridiculous for a nasi lemak. For the same price, I can get 3-4 items more on a nasi lemak and still got spare cash for nasi tambah. Image source: McDonalds Malaysia)
One of the biggest problems that we face during the fasting month is the difficulty to get a good nasi lemak for breakfast. The usual morning nasi lemak stalls are closed for the month.
We can still get the usual nasi lemak from the nearest kedai Mamak (the sorry looking sambal that they splash on the plain rice is the same dumb sambal that they put on the roti canai, so the sambal is nothing special and probably is not fresh too. Same goes for the nuts and the anchovies) but it is not the same with the one that I usually buy from the old Makcik at the road side stall and has a really spicy sambal (you know I hate sweet sambal – read the post here).
For those who are not familiar with him, Namewee or his real name, Wee Meng Chee is a Malaysian Chinese hip hop recording artist, composer, filmmaker (his Nasi Lemak 2.0 is quite good) and actor. He was famous with controversies namely the one relating to a song titled Negarakuku.
