Nasi Kangkang

When I used the colloquial word ‘kang kang’ in my post yesterday, I was reminded of a gossip session years ago.

I used to fetch the boys home from school and would go much earlier before the bell to secure a parking space near the school gates. There would be the usual faces of a few full-time homemakers and a couple or so of working mothers sitting on the benches underneath the shady trees waiting for their kids. But there is this one guy always in singlet and bermuda-pants who would be there daily waiting for his son and daughter. Occasionally this guy would be at the benches chatting with a few of the ladies but most of the time, he would be having a smoke with the other male school bus drivers. I was curious actually about what he does for a living because he doesn’t seemed dressed for work and he fetched the kids all the time and I don’t remember seeing the kids’ mom before. The 8-pohism got the better of me and I just have ask one of the mothers, HH, whom he usually talked to.

Me : That guy so young ‘pencen’ ledi hor?

HH : Ehhh.., he doesn’t go to work wan. His wife works and he looks after the kids and all things in the house.

Me : Good oso hor? At least when she’s at work, she doesn’t have to worry about leaving the kids with the maid for the whole day.

HH : He said wife works nights, so day time, she’s sleeping at home.

Me : Ah, I see, I see.

HH : **pssst..** They say hor, he makan nasi kangkang wan.

Me : Errrrmm..….Oooooh….


We hear ‘nasi selipar’ all the time. But, but… ‘nasi kangkang’?????

Gosh! So many definitions! I was thinking the kang-kang refers to what the wife does to earn a living...!

so, gigolo makan nasi apa leh? LOL

hi bernard, welcome!
that's what i thot too.
kenny, ikanbilis & sasha are more knowledgeable. LOL
  At 7:24 PM Blogger Chen said:
my understanding of nasi kangkang is similar to sasha's comment :) It's some sort of love potion made for the men. It was believed that after eating the rice, the man will abide entirely by the woman's wishes. Kekkee.. how true is this I dunno :P
Kangkang means legs astride right?
Nasi= rice.
So Nasi kangkang means having a meal of rice in between her legs, right? Wow! Who needs belachan and salt fish after all? LOL
dr chen
dunno dis wan got entry in 'Ripley's Believe It or Not'. LOL

hi cocka doodle, welcome!
dis wan 'au naturel' - belacan & saltfish are cancer-causing. LOL
nyonya, your blog is a riot la. I'm lovin it ba da da da ala McD ni!
  At 2:48 PM Blogger sming said:
ya, my understanding for nasi kangkang is also same as sasha's. Only that the story I heard is about the case where the black magic woman use to 'steal' the other woman's husband...
yucks !

So as opposed to strolling at a constant pace for say an hour,
you'd probably alter items up by alternating brief bursts of intense strolling for say a minute followed by a recovery period with slower strolling immediately after each and every extreme time period. Just keep alternating for twenty minutes to start and add time while you become much more match.

Also after you do any type of work out it can be strongly advised you drink tons of water ahead of during and immediately after to maintain your body appropriately hydrated.
