Iwan Mee Udang @ Jitra

The last time I had Mee Udang was at Kuala Sepetenag when I was on my way back to Kedah from Kuala Lumpur.

Mee Udang as it is called has a few medium sized prawns as part of the recipe. Popular Mee Udang are also found at Sungai Dua and Pulau Sayak.

It was the first time I tried Mee Udang in Jitra at Iwan Koteow Kerang.  The roadside stall is located at Jitra II opposite SMK Jitra on the main road towards North. Driving into Jitra town after the first traffic light, and after the first junction on the left, look for the Nasi Kandar Nasmir and the stall is just in front. A plate of Mee Udang is RM8.00.  

The Char Koteow (below) is also as tasty as the Mee Udang

Puding Labu @Homestay Sungai Manik, Perak

If you want to try to savour Puding Labu, head over to Homestay Sungai Manik in Telok Intan, Perak. That was one of the local delicacies that we were served during the Sahabat Media CC1M visit sometimes last August. Puding Labu was one of the two traditional breakfast cuisine for Malays staying in the rural areas.

The dessert is actually custard puddings cooled in a pumpkin. The pumpkin is then sliced before being served.


If you want to try and bake one for your family, this is one of the recipe I found on the net. 

Our entourage was also served with another traditional breakfast cuisine of mashed tapioca with anchovy sambal. Tapioca has a high content of carbohydrate and provide energy for the padi farmers to work in the padi fields those days.

In Flight Entertainment On MAS

The next time if you fly on MAS take along your earphone or your bulky headphone. I am not sure whether its on all of their aircraft but on their Boeing 737-800's theres a USB port and ear/headphone jack. So if you wish to view whats on their Inflight entertainment library just plug in your ear/headphone for the sound.
The USB port is on the seat in front of you while the ear/headphoone jack on the arm rest.
