Air Asia In Flight Food Review : Ramadhan Special

Before taking the last flight back to Kuching, I stop by KL for a few hours to meet up with my sister for a meal. My sister took a half day leave and will only be meeting me up after lunch hour so with some time to kill, I did some shopping. To be honest, I was rather dissapointed with the mega sale this year. There's nothing much to buy from my thin wallet. :(

I don't know if it's me but time in KL seems to past so fast. After a rather miserable lunch (that'll be in another post) with my sister, it was already time to go to the airport. I was already very tired by then, having to travel since 6 in the morning and not sleeping the night before so all I want the moment I hop on the plane is a good sleep.

However, 30 minutes into the flight, I woke up feeling cold and feverish which naturally lead to continuous sneezing that went for about 15 minutes or so. And you know, when you sneeze in public now (what more in a plane!), people immediately dubbed you for being a A(H1N1) carrier.

I sort a quick solution (or so I thought) by ordering a cup of hot drink and a meal. I flipped the menu for at least six times before finally settled with an order. It was not because I was not ready to part RM 13 for the drinks and food, but I was still very full. I just had a large McValue meal in McDonald's 20 minutes prior to departure time! (not boarding time - when I went in the departure hall, everyone was walking to the plane already!)

This is the Ramadhan Special : Nasi lemak sotong. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much, or anything for that matter. However upon my first spoon full , my palate was pleasantly surprise with crispy and fresh cuttlefish cooked perfectly in the sambal. The steamed coconut rice too didn't fail me. It was fragrant and well cooked. Looks can be deceiving eh? It may not be presented like how it was illustrated but it certainly taste like it!

Oh well, it was after all a Chairman's pick menu. So you know it gotta be good. Just so you know, my sneezing didn't stop. It got worse and next thing I know, my nose started to bleed! =(
