A woman takes her own sweet time selecting for title of her likings at one of Chowrasta Market’s used book stores.

The market holds over 200 years of history dating back in the 1800s as wet market which remains functional until today.

Today it has evolved as one of Penang’s important tourist attraction selling traditional sweet and pickles, used books, apparels as well as an awesome spot for street food.

At Ali Amier Nasi Kandar, the long que for a plate of rice starts as early as 6.00 am.

At Ali Amier Nasi Kandar, the long que for a plate of rice starts as early as 6.00 am.

This is a ritual for Penangite upon coming back home for holidays – to que for deliciously prepared Nasi Kandar dish as breakfast.

In a glance, it is just a plain white rice served with one or two (or more!) protein of your choice such as beef, chicken, fish, egg, squid, prawn or crab.

‘Decorated’ with locally known ‘bendi’ (ladyfingers), steamed, the whole plate then poured with generously amount of ‘kuah campur’ (mixed of curry gravies) and only then it is ready to be served.

There are various Nasi Kandar spots in Penang Island, each has its unique taste, special dish and their own diehard fans.

Among top ones are Ali Amier (in Jelutong) and Kampung Melayu (in Air Itam). The Nasi Kandar craze has now spread nationwide. Many of them operate on 24-hours mode.

Hanging out in Nasi Kandar outlets are considered cool in cities like Kuala Lumpur, unlike in Penang where people are very particular about taste and quality of service.

Regardless, the best Nasi Kandar is always here, in Penang, where it all started.

Siakapkeli – Syaitan yang tidak diikat.

Siakapkeli – Syaitan yang tidak diikat.

Di hari-hari terakhir Ramadan, aku terima berita Siakapkeli siarkan artikel berkaitan sela 48 hari antara gaji penjawat awam.

Dan Siakapkeli being the filthy Siakapkeli, dia tukar nama penulis.

Elok-elok artikel itu ditulis Ali Imran, dia ubah jadi perempuan dengan nama Farra Vy.

Memang celaka.

Di akhir artikel dia letak kredit Bernama.

Tapi kat Bernama mana ada penulis nama Farra Vy.

Patutlah kawan aku, Ikram Al-Banjari marah sangat dengan portal ini.

Patutlah pemilik dia penakut, tak berani tampilkan diri.

Sebab memang mereka punya kerja mula-mula cakap bohong, lama-lama…MENCURI!

Satu-satunya malam yang daddy tak menyesal tak keluar ke mamak untuk tengok bola adalah pada malam itu.

Satu-satunya malam yang daddy tak menyesal tak keluar ke mamak untuk tengok bola adalah pada malam itu.

Sebab itulah malam terakhir daddy dapat tukar lampin kamu.

Di waktu pagi, daddy lambai kamu pergi.

Tanpa mengetahui itulah lambaian terakhir kita.

Petangnya, dapat khabar ada sesuatu tak kena pada kamu, diikuti berita pemergian kamu buat selamanya tidak lama selepas itu.

Bedahan doktor tak jumpa apa-apa punca, lalu kamu dikategorikan Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Tidak mengapa. Kamu pergi dahulu potong giliran daddy.

Bak kata M entor, jangan dirisaukan keadaan kamu. Tambah beliau, kamu sedang gembira bermain-main di atas sana.

Jaga diri, Aryaan Hafizh. Jaga juga anak-anak lain yang naik ke langit terlalu awal berbanding ibubapanya.

Aryaan Hafizh, 3 Dis 2011 – 13 Jun 2012.

6 bulan 10 hari.

Jumpa lagi.

Much thanks for publishing my piece on salary management during festive season.

Government servants’ salary will be paid early 4 times this year making duration between pay extended from the normal 30 days.

Longest extension goes up to 48 days and if not being managed well, it can be disasterous.

Perdana Menteri Jepun Shinzo Abe hadiahkan jersi bola kepada Tun Mahathir.

Tulisan di belakang jersi – Mahathir 7 sempena kedudukan beliau sebagai Perdana Menteri ketujuh Malaysia.

Tun Mahathir pula balas dengan menghadiahkan buku tentang dirinya kepada Abe dengan ucapan,

“I hope by reading this book you will know me better.”

Abe cool.
