June 25 on Nasi Lemak

In Singapore and Malaysia, a common breakfast food is nasi lemak - rice cooked with coconut milk (not healthy at all) and served with simple condiments and curry (Malaysia) or chili paste aka sambal (Singapore).

Killiney has been in business since 1919 starting off as the ubiquitous kopi tiam.

The pack of nasi lemak i had with kopi o is 100% organic - not a single synthetic material is used. Banana leaf is used to pack the rice, giving it a nice aroma as well. Had I used my fingers to eat it as it is done traditionally, you can see how we used to be green without having to say we were green.

A 2 unit x 2.5 unit rectangular sheet of banana leaf folds into a rectangular pyramid with a 1 unit x .75 unit base and .75 unit height. The unit is the length of iPhone 6. 

How much rice is packed into this package?
