Food: Healthy weekend

Embarking on a quest to rid myself of unhealthy elements in my diet, I decided on Martabak for dinner last night.

What the Sabahan version of Martabak really is, is a batter of schmushed egg, onion and vegetable mix, wrapped in a thin flour dough skin. The package is then is deep fried to a crisp gold brown on the outside, and served with chili sauce.

*Deep-frying kills germs. Must be healthy... right?

God bless Sabah... the Martabak cost me only RM1.50 (USD$0.40). Other things I had for dinner last night include:
  • Cendol, containing coconut milk high in cholesterol and packed with sugar ~ RM1.50 (USD$0.40).
  • Deep fried banana ~ RM0.50 for 4 pieces (USD$0.15).
Stay healthy people, and take me as your best role model!

This is the very first food you've posted that did NOT make me salivate. Oh, except the dog, I forgot about the dog. Anyway...this looks fattening, though the price is right. We can't even get a gum-ball for .15 here!

Gary ehem... Anonymous: Stop telling the world that I really am a millionaire playboy. Man, you have it good on Kwangyang!

Gene: Ha ha, the rest really is quite comparable to KL. Those were only just snacks.

Gnightgirl: Welcome to prices in Malaysia. I am sure you'd be happy spending some money in these parts of the world!

Felix: There's a night market by the marina every night. That farmer's co-op... They've got some really nice things going there.
