Kempunan

I bought this at Shah Alam City Centre (SACC).
RM4.50/5pcs.



Damn expensive worrr.. but what to do...
Need to satisfy my craving anyway.


I'm wondering who on earth had created the 'kempunan' concept in the first place?

Kak Midah: No chance at all la! Haha! The rendang minimum purchase is RM10, looks so delicious but I had to let it go. Maybe next time :(

amieyalen: u like it too? :D
RM4.50 for one sitting is okla if you look at it that way. unless they say minium purchase is 10pcs=RM9, then forget it la. However, my RM4.50 was really worth it ;)

Mahal kah? it is like less that RM1 per piece?

I have to ask, what is that exactly? I am in the U.S. I have never seen or heard of that before

Ju, do u mean mengidam or kempunan?? Mengidam is craving but kempunan is when u craved for something but because of some circumstances, u didn't get that thing (usually it's always about food laa)

Akak kompius laaa!

willie : RM1 for a bit of rice mmg mahal la.. but it's only normally found during Hari Raya, that's why they jacked up the price..

ghosting miranda : hi! Welcome to my blog! Sorry for the lack of info. Actually it is called 'ketupat palas' in Malay language. It's a glutinous rice wrapped in a coconut/pandanus leaf, and boiled to cook. It's delicious by itself, but normally eaten with curry.

CT : i mmg mean kempunan ler. In our believe, kempunan means when I craved for it, but if I did not satisfy my craving, some bad luck may befall on me. Remember the short story about 'ponek' that we read when we were in ESL? I was worried of that, that's why I had to finally buy it irregardless of the price. Kalau aku 'ehem', then barulah 'mengidam' is applicable.... ehehe..

cyril dason: ya.. i think so. no choice la bro..

one other : again, it's not :p.. don't expect anything until next year k.. ;)
