Tucking Into Roadside Indian Rojak & Cendol

I have not done this for donkey yonkey years – sitting at the roadside to tuck into a plate of Indian rojak and cool cendol!

I can’t even remember when the last time I did this with the hubby. I think it was way before Alycia was born. Now, that’s more than 13 years ago alright! And it felt so good to be doing it again yesterday, just the both of us, under a shady tree next to a longkang and tucking into a plate of not-so-hygienic Indian rojak with only a piece of disposable plastic paper lining a re-used zillion times and unwashed plate. The bowl where the Cendol was placed was washed in only 3 small pails of water, with hundreds of other used bowls!

Nah, it’s ok if it’s done once in a blue moon. Our body needs the germs to gain resistance  to diseases ok! 😉  And I have my Izumio to help me zap away the free radicals! 😀

After sweating it out under the 4pm El-Nino heat, we went to collect my car from the Hyundai service center.  Back home, I needed my 3rd shower for the day before I tucked into a heartwarming home-cooked dinner of chicken soup with carrot + Camerons gourd + sweet corn (where I threw in a few tablespoons of organic oats) and braised piggy tail with black beans and peanuts 🙂

  1. That is a must-do for me! I go to the one in Section 17, yummy, and have never had any issues. The cendol there is much better (and cheaper!) than the Keng Kwee St franchise. Not far away there is a lovely Malay lady who sells fresh coconut and nangka, right by the yellow flats. She laughed at my broken bahasa but hey, we communicated! This time we stayed near Saujana by Fairway 18…it was amazing! Hope the heat wave improves.

    1. Hi Chris
      We used to patronize this rojak and cendol van at Subang when we were staying in Shah Alam. The owner has a long line of loyal customers who would patiently wait under the hot sun. These vans are sprouting out everywhere and I think they make good money – all cash terms! What a coincidence. There is also a Malay lady who sells nangka and a coconut water stall next to this rojak + cendol van at our neighborhood!
      The heat wave is improving, hopefully there will be more rain so that there’s no need for another water rationing exercise.
