Auntie! Auntie!


Did you just call me auntie? Potong markah! I will not talk to you forever! This conversation almost took place one hot Saturday morning outside the bank. I was on my way for my nasi kerabu fix when this young person (from WWF) tried to get my attention. I ignored him and walked away. 

After loving the nasi kerabu at Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan, I simply had to have it again. This time with fried chicken.



I expected a chicken leg or drumstick, instead it was chicken pieces, reminiscent of the Nasi Kak Wok I had at Village House Kopitiam.



They are slightly more generous with the aromatic herbs that come with the raw vegetables. As with the previous visit, the Nasi Kerabu was very good.



This time the salted egg wasn't as salty and I enjoyed eating the yolks and the whites too. 



That was a very satisfying lunch. This will be my go to place for Nasi Kerabu.

And let me show you the nasi lemak I had here the day before.



Does that look good? The rice had the aroma and taste of santan, though it could be more lemak (am I starting to sound like somebody? LOL!)



I loved the sambal. It was sweetish and very tasty, though not spicy.



The ikan bilis was very crunchy. Nice!



The chicken drumstick was well marinated with turmeric and salt. And I like it that they give a serving of acar timun.



Without a doubt I will come back to Capital again and again for my nasi kerabu and nasi lemak fix.



Then on my way back to office, I decided to walk along the same path to see if the WWF person would pull the same stunt and call me auntie again. Hi Miss! (now that's more like it). I like the color of your hair (lebih-lebih ni). Are you from PJ? (now, don't get fresh with me. Pulak...). Kids! I smiled and walked on.

  2. Was the WWF person the same both times? If yes, he called you "Auntie" and he didn't get anything from you. Then, he tried to "bodek" you pulak but still got nothing (he probably thought he should have just called you "Auntie" the second time too)....haha! ;D Sounds like Capital will be frequently visited (by you) for lunch.

    P/S: Is your reference to...sounding like someone.....me?....wakakakaka! :D If so, it's an honour...kekeke ^_*

  3. Kelantan food is always delicious and I seldom have the chance to eat them in KL. The kerabu styles got some Southern Thai similarities.

    He should call you Tai-Tai or Leng Lui...

  4. Now who are you beginning to sound like? Hmmm....they call me uncle or towkay which is flattering. Good thing they don't call me Ah Pek!

    I think our nasi kerabu here looks nicer - you must come and try. No wonder one Kelantan Facebook food page stole my photo for her feature on Kelantan delights - bet she can't find one that looks as nice there. Hehehehehe!!!!

  6. Auntie!? Can't he see that you are not an Auntie. I really can't stand people calling others aunties thinking that it is the polite thing to do. Who is your aunty? Don't simply call anyone Aunty.

    1. I do have my auntie days hah..hah... I guess it is normal practice to call an older person auntie. We did that when we were younger, right? Until when it is our turn to be called auntie, we know that's not very nice. LOL!

    2. No, I never call people aunty unless they really are my aunties as in my blood relatives so my mother will scold me why so rude never call so and so aunty and I would reply, they are not my aunties.

  11. Aiyoh. Who was that young man who called you auntie. So rude! ^^

    Nasi Kerabu. I love it when serve with chicken leg. Usually that is the case so it is quite unusual that this place served you the chicken pieces. Anyhow I am sure you enjoyed your hearty lunch.

  12. i lamented the day a decade ago when a stranger called me abang, instead of adik ... ever since then, i've been the one forced to address other people as adik ... luckily so far, only pre-teens have dared to call me uncle, but that won't last for long (sigh!). oh well, we age with dignity, heheh! :D

    1. Well, abang is better than pakcik! LOL! Glad to know we all go through the same phase sigh....

  13. wah... so fierce!! To me, it's normal la, people calling me uncle long long already. Anyway, in SG, for guys, calling uncle is sort of a respect unless you very young. But to ladies, yeah, a bit offensive! hahaha..

  14. Haiz, I already used to people calling me Auntie :P I already "upgrade" to Auntie, agree with Chris that calling uncle is more of a respect, as for Auntie, no, I also don't like, I prefer people calling me Xiao Jie

    I like the nasi lemak with the fried chicken
