Breakfast no 1 at the Emperor

Nasi lemak is a delicately flavoured rice boiled in coconut water and pandan leaves. Looks for all the world like steamed rice. Fried beehorn (see comments on other posting), bread and butter pudding which was soft and half cooked and actually very nice, sambal tumis, small peanuts, chopped cucumber, 1/2 boiled egg, tiny sausages, watermelon.

  1. I have just googled what was in the sambal tumis. Go to
    and it has the fermented shrimp paste in it that I thought I avoided while in Malaysia. Belancon is tiny shrimp mashed and buried for a few months, then dug up, fried and hard pressed into dry cakes ready to cook. Hmmm. Is that why I am still out of sorts physically?
