Ramadhan 2012 : Day 10
Wasn’t thinking of going to Pasar Ramadhan today. Just hate the crowd. So I just decided to go to one of the shop nearby my house selling Kelantan food.
Fancy of eating Nasi Kerabu for iftar today. And here is what I got – plain Nasi Kerabu with salted egg. I was planning of getting something else like “ayam percik” or fish.
There is a “makcik” standing next to me buying 1 very small fish for taking away. When asked for the price, it turned out to be RM5. I saw that “makcik” is a bit shocked, where she pays for it, and left.
Listening to that, I just cancelled the though of getting something else, and I’m ready to pay while taking a few RM1 notes from my wallet. This time, I get the shock. RM5 for that Nasi Kerabu? RM5 for the plain Nasi Kerabu with 1/2 of salted egg? The price of food during this Ramadhan really ridiculously high.
Luckily I still have a few frozen Mexican BBQ Chicken in the fridge that I can fry to go with my Nasi Kerabu.
I’m also getting a few “kuih” for iftar today. Some “nikbat” and agar – agar.
One thing that I don’t like about foods during Ramadhan is, they tend to reheat the dishes that they didn’t manage to sell over several days. For example this “Pulut Kaya” just went to the bin as it is spoilt and sour already.
