If there's one place to get Nasi Kunyit
in Penang, it's gotta be EATON, Batu Lanchang.
5 packs of Eaton Nasi Kunyit plus 1 pack of baby Ang Ku Kuih
(the latter's for The Husband) from Dee and Mee.
Penangites often turn to them to get traditional baby 1-month "mua guik" boxes to give to friends and family to announce the arrival of a newborn. Red-dyed eggs with Ang Ku Kuih are usually included. (Can't remember if there's anything else in the box aside from this. :-/)
I used to love it when babies of people close to us are born because that means Nasi Kunyit is coming!! Whoopie! But that was before I grew up and realised that I could just walk into EATON and buy a packet of Nasi Kunyit from the stores without occasion. HAHA.
Unfortunately, a lot of people with kids nowadays are moving toward the new move of giving out KFC meal vouchers and TGV/GSC vouchers instead of this traditional gift box filled with yummy goodies. I wonder why. This is SO much better (to eat) and is definitely more meaningful! Some traditions – especially the yummy ones – are not to be broken!!

It ain't fancy food but it's the best in all the land. =)
