Salad or Ulam or Rojak..?

Everyone know Salad these days. We know salad is consist of fresh and raw mix of vegetables. Vegetables in Salad usually not locals like tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, cabbage etc. Salad is consume with special sauce or dressing. Usually in our mindset if some one eating salad they are on a diet. This is different with Ulam. Ulam is local version of Salad that.

Ulam – Pegaga

Unlike Salad, ulam have broad type of leaf, ordinary vegetables usually not recognize as ulam. I think ulam got more stronger taste than salad. Our mindset is if some one eating ulam they are on healthy regime. Like fountain of youth. Many locals that enjoy longer age are associated with eating ulam. Usually ulam got strong taste and more bitter. Many leaves shoot are consider ulam. Many of the ulam are also hard to find in local markets but must search for it at special market like Pasar Tani or in the village.

But till today you can still find petition writers throughout Malaysia. For example I saw petition writers at Government office in Seremban, pic below.

Premium Raya or Online Raya?..

Current hot premium shopping in Malaysia is maybe Johor Premium Outlets and quality brands name with free shipping at Zalora can make you just sit at home while searching for Baju Kurung. You got to go down south to go to Johor Premium outlets yet you can find many branded items at everyday discounts from 25% to 65%. You can see Singaporeans, Middle East and many from SEA countries at JPO. So Maybe Branded and designer Items can be more cheaper at JPO rather than KL or other countries around.

San Shu Gong @ Jonker Street

San Shu Gong is one example of local delicacies being up date to another level. At San Shu Gong the local food that sell can be found at every place in Melaka but the difference is about presentation and packaging. Usually visitors will try their Durian Cendol, the cendol itself is not authentic but the packaging does. San Shu Gong is located in Strategic place at tourist hotspot Jonker Street.

Before San Shu Dong, Tan Kim Hock is already known for distributing the local and Traditional food.
