Of Tax & Nasi Kerabu

Most of you probably have submit your tax return form (BE Form) by now. If you still have not. Well, may god help you. I went to the LHDN office in Jalan Duta to submit my BE form. I still have not got my PIN yet because this is the first time I submit a tax return. Yeah, I earned peanuts last time, currently I earn a slightly bigger peanut so I have to pay tax.

After working night shift, on a Monday morning I drove there. The office to submit form is at the first floor, the ground floor counter is for people to pay tax. Since, I get tax rebate, I don't have to go to the ground floor. I was asked to put my filled up form in the envelope provided and put it in on of the two large transparent boxes. One is mark, "Untuk Pulangan Wang", which means me WOOT!

Maybe it's not the last day yet so not many people there. Sigh, Malaysians always like to do things last minute. Feeling hungry, I went to the Penjaja Selera Duta just across the road of the LDHN building. There are a few stalls inside, most selling Malay food like nasi lemak, and roti canai. I passed by a stall which is displaying condiment that you find in nasi kerabu like raw bean sprout, fried coconut flasks, and green leafy thingy that I don't know what it's call.

So, I ordered a packet of nasi kerabu with daging rendang. The lady very quickly put in all the condiments and some special sauce, chili belacan sauce and satay sauce I think. Of course let's not forget the daging rendang.

My packet of Nasi Kerabu with Daging Rendang

This is one of the best Nasi Kerabu I've ever eaten in KL. The rice is so fluffy and fragrant. The bean sprout is sweet and juicy. The daging rendang is cooked right not too hard to bite off. All this for only RM 2.50, can beat the overpriced Nasi Kerabu you find at the 3rd floor food court in Megamall, Mid Valley. Now even if I don't have to submit or pay tax, I'll be paying frequent visit to the LHDN in Jalan Duta.

It really does look nice. I've tasted from night markets and bazaar Ramadhan as well. It's nice and healthy. The crunchiness of the long beans and bean sprouts blends well with the chilli gravy and grated coconut for the basics. Of course, the rendang comes as an extra.

The blue colour in the rice is due to an extract of a kind of flower.
