Whenever

The last time we were back in Kapit was in 2015 during the school holiday. Last week, we spent 3 days there for the Ching Ming. Did not go anywhere as it was a short stay and hubby and I both fell sick. 

Most of the time, we were in my in-laws' hospital canteen for meals.  No complaint since everything was on them!  The drinks, the food.  The kids get to take whatever they want.  Lol!

On the day of our departure, we had a chance to try out the nasi lemak. Never try the nasi lemak before, so sick or no sick, I would not want to miss the chance to taste it. My MIL sells it for RM5.00 but I am not sure what is the normal portion. Definitely not a whole hard-boiled egg and fried chicken!

We helped ourselves to the rice and ingredients and this was how my plate of nasi lemak turned out. Love the fragrant coconut rice as well as the salted fishes. The sambal was nice too; sweet and spicy at the same time.

Of course whenever you come to Kapit, one must try its local food such as kampua, pian sip, chicken feet soup, my MIL's Mee Brunei and most distinctive dish would be the deep-fried roti telur in the hawker market.

And the little sight-seeing around the busy town especially the interesting Market Teresang and historical Fort Sylvia. 


We kind of missing the slow paced and quietness of Kapit town when we left that day. Not sure when we would be back or would we ever be back again. Maybe the next time we come back here, it would be by road. Waiting for the new road to be complete then. Till then, goodbye Kapit.

I sure would love to try your mother-in-law's cooking. Nasi lemak looks good. I miss the butter cake at Untong Bakery, so very fragrant and nice.

I miss visiting old towns like Kapit - there is so much treasure to be found food-wise. I wish I had taken the time to travel more when I was still living in East Malaysia.
