What’s in the box…

The poslaju van came by the other day and when I went out to see, the man gave me this…

Urgent

Actually, I was expecting it as my cousin in Kuching had texted me the day before saying that she would be sending me something.

I unsealed the wrapper and took out what was inside. There was a box…

Box

…so the next question would be – what was in the box?

I opened it and inside, I found something cylindrical rolled up in bubble wrap…

Bubble-wrapped

I removed the wrapper and finally, I got to see what my cousin had sent to me – a bottle of mango chutney…

Waitrose mango chutney

– Waitrose, made in the UK, no less. I shared the photo on my wall on Facebook and somebody in England commented, “Wah! From Waitrose!! So posh one lah. Enjoy.” Hmmm…I bet it does not come cheap, definitely not in this part of the world.

This one has “a hint of ginger”…

With a hint of ginger

Hmmmm…0% trace of fat! That’s good news! LOL!!!

I enjoyed the pineapple chutney that I had once at a banana leaf place in Kuching so much so that I asked for more…and more. Unfortunately, we do not have any banana leaf restaurant in Sibu but it so happened that on that very same day, my missus made some her her soft and fluffy pancakes so instead of maple syrup, I had them with the chutney instead…

Pancakes with mango chutney

Hmmm…it was very nice indeed! I love those chunks inside – I guess those must be the mangoes.

But not quite satisfied with that, I went and tapaoed some nasi bryani with chicken curry (RM6.00) from this shop and had that with the chutney…

Chicken bryani with mango chutney

Oooo…that was really good – something along the lines of acar limau (lime pickle) except that it is not as sour.

Thank you so much, Gerrie, so very much obliged indeed. That certainly helped appease my craving for chutney with my bryani. Hey, that rhymes! LOL!!!
