Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim @ Alor Setar

A day before I am off to China for a week, I know I will surely miss curry when I am there, hence the urge to have a good place of awesome Nasi Kandar before I depart from Malaysia is a must.

Hence, I travel all the way down to Alor Setar to the best Nasi Kandar I had tried up till today, Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim.

This is truly a 1Malaysia stall, unlike the BS you heard and read in newspaper everyday.

This small coffee shop are run by Chinese in a traditional Chinese Coffee shop setting, while the Nasi Kandar stall are run by Indian Muslims, or better known as Mamak. You can always find all races dining here happily, proved that we Malaysians, although we do have our different believes and culture, we can live together in a harmonious way.

We don’t need all those marketing campaign and 1Malaysia logo all around to tell us what 1Malaysia are, all the time we are already able to do so.

Nasi Kandar Tomato @ Langkawi

Most of the sea activities at Langkawi, which include the Island Hoping, Mangrove tour and Pulau Payar starts at 9AM. Hence, since we are staying at Kuah, we have to wake up early to reach the met up point by 9AM.

Hence, LY woke up at around 6.15AM, while me? I can’t get a good sleep, maybe too excited? I am awake since 3AM++ and playing games in the room LOL.

Anyway, we checked out our hotel at 7.15AM, arriving Cenang beach at 7.45AM or so, only to noticed that most shop, even those that are selling breakfast are still closed! I decided to wait until 8AM and see what happens, only noticed that most of them are still closed…….

Hence, instead of buying packets of Nasi Lemak by the road side, without much choice, we head to Nasi Kandar Tomato for our breakfast.

Although it’s early, but several dishes are already ready. Too bad, it doesn’t taste good. 4.5/10
