Ramadhan is here again! As usual, this year, I'll be at my roadside stall again, selling some kuih (if you can call it kuih) next to my cousin's Nasi Arab Stall at Lebuhraya Sultanah Bahiyah, or more famously known as Jalan Sultanah.
This is the 4th year I'm doing this. I must confess that I just cannot stay still during the fasting month. Rather stay in my cold, air-conditioned room in the office and getting drowsier, I'd rather spend a bit of time outside doing some business.
What I sell?
My cousin, Syed Nasir (Chet) has been selling the one and only authentic Nasi Arab for more than 10 years. The original recipe comes from his grandmother, a well known cook back in first half of the 20th century. She and her children have been preparing and selling kuih behind the Masjid Zahir back then. The kuihs were different from the local ones, of course.
Getting back to Chet, he usually starts at 4-4.15pm at his tent and usually the whole huge pot finished by 5-5.15pm. Roughly, I'd say that around 45% of his customers called earlier to make a booking and come later just to pick it up. this saves time and less hassle too.
