Food Entry 3 (Ayam Penyet Akmar)

This is Pecey Lelle. An Indonesia cuisine which is more commonly known as ayam penyet.

During my stay in Kuching Sarawak, this ayam penyet was so famaous until eveyone recommend tourist to eat it even it is not a trademark of Sarawak Cuisine. My friend laugh at me because i'm eating this indonesian food in Sarawak. By the way he is studying in Indonesia so make sense. The best place to eat this Ayam Penyet is in Indonesia not in Kuching obviously.

But because it is so famaous in Kuching, why don't we give it a try. This entry can be useful for someone who want to search for the best Ayam Penyet in Kuching.

Even though i stay only for a few weeks here in Kuching, it is enough for me to try different places that serve this Ayam Penyet.

Okay okay. What basically is Ayam penyet. It is consist of a fried chicken, with plain stream rice and lot of traditional malay salad or what do you call Ulam, and importantly sambal (chillie). What make it different is the Sambal. Different places serve different type of Sambal.

Here in kuching, i have try 3 places of Ayam penyet. And in term of chicken i would list it like this:

1. Satay Ceko Restaurant - The chicken is so tender and crunchy until you can eat the bone.
2. Raja Ayam Penyet Restaurant - The chicken is delicious but small. So dissapointing.
3. Akmar restaurant ( The chicken is not that good, just a regular chicken with spices. Not that crispy)

But in term of sambal, the list goes like this:

1. Akmar restaurant - The sambal is nice. Hot, but not too hot. It's more like sambal belacan.
2. Satay ceko- The sambal is quite nice, sweet and not too hot. My favourite.
3. Raja Ayam Penyet - Is this a sambal? Its a hundred percent pure chili. Too hot.

So, that's what i think. Kuching people might know much more place to eat this stuff. I just manage to find this three places as i don't have car to go around kuching. So... that's all. hahha.


  1. haha... it's very easy to get Nasi Ayam Penyek in Singapore. I think because it's near to Indonesia and a lot of Indonesians who live here. Here's my post about the Nasi Ayam Penyek:

  2. heheh.

    tapi series wey, tak pernah ada 2 kedai yg rasa sambal dia sama. laen tempat laen rasa.

    ada yg instant kot sambal dia, nanti aku carik kalo ko nak.

    sambal dia biasa terbuat dari cili, gula merah, tomato yg digoreng, dgn apa ek? aku lupa la. heheh

    lele tu zaki, maksud dia keli. ikan keli.
    kalau pecel dgn ikan keli, sebut pecel lele.
    kalau pecel dgn ayam, jd pecel ayam.

    tp macam ko pernah post pasal gado2 la, laen tpt laen benda kan? hehe

    tapi risau gak aku, mana tau ada org indo yg mengamuk lagi, kata kita cetak rompak makanan dorang, cam cerita lagu rasa sayang, batik, rendang, dsbnya. hiks

    apa2pun, enjoy ur food =D

    p/s- i seriously consider to learn or to bring any cook here back to malaysia so later i can business restaurant of indonesian's food. tapi blom pernah bljr la. heheh

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

Master in Pathology (Malaysia): A Guide To Apply.

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
