Whee. Work wasn’t so bad today. A little running here and there, a few meetings left and right, and the day was over before I knew it. At least for the moment, there’s no one rushing me for deadlines.
It’s nice being the one to put pressure on others. 😀
Like yesterday, I stopped by Bangsar’s pasar juadah to buy back some food. Pasar juadahs are basically a group of stalls selling food, mainly for Muslims breaking fast. The food they sell aren’t the normal type either; all are somewhat themed towards Ramadhan. For example, you can’t get ayam percik or briyani gam at any mamak place.
Juadah basically means spread. Of food. And that’s a noun. 😛
The selection in Bangsar’s is pretty good, and even when I’ve got my list of things to buy, it still takes time cuz there’s usually more than one stall selling the same food. There were 3 stalls selling briyani gam, and none of them looked like the real thing. Real briyani gam is served with the meat/mutton/chicken mixed with the rice. I think it is also cooked that way, which gives it its rich aroma and flavor. But I bought one for myself, just thinking about it.
True briyani gam can be found in Batu Pahat, Johor, along a row of shops in town. Sorry, but I only remember how the location looks like. Don’t remember the stall name either.
My mom tells she heard there’s a stall in Taman Tun selling it, and there’s usually a long queue for it. Well, there’s a lot more days in this fasting month, so we’ll probably drop by there sometime. Read More
