Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri & Lemang (glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk in bamboo)


First of all, i would like to say "Selamat Hari Raya Aidlifitri" to all Malays and happy holidays to all the Malaysian and Singaporean!


When i was on my way back from town yesterday evening, i saw a big signboard showing that "Lemang Special Berlemak , Dijamin!!!" (Lemang Special with coconut milk, Guarantee!!!) on the roadside of the Kampung.
"Lemang =
Glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk in bamboo"
Guarantee??? I was attracted by the word "guarantee" then i hopped down from my car and bought two Lemang.
" 1 for RM10" . When i was home, i quicky opened one of the bamboo stalk and i found that 40% of the rice inside the bamboo are uncooked!! T__T


Lemang cooking process.


The bamboo is placed at an angle near a fire for about four hours.


They say that, Hari Raya would be incomplete without Lemang.

aduh... cannot claim a refund now? unless u know where they stay but the sum is too small to make a big deal. count it as just bad luck.
