And we dressed him up as street food.  Penang-appropriate.

Nasi lemak is the national dish of Malaysia and can be found everywhere in Penang.  The banana leaf-newspaper cone is rolled then typically filled with half a hard boiled egg, tiny crispy fried fish, roasted peanuts, spicy sambal paste and coconut steamed rice.  The bottoms are folded over and origami-sealed making a perfect little package you can take and eat anywhere.  I thought this rightly described Miles.

He was in the costume about 5 minutes on Halloween morning but, as his bedtime coincides with most Penangers’ pre-dinner snack, we missed out on any festivities this year.  Better for me, anyway, since I haven’t yet introduced chocolate, sugar, or potassium sorbate and I would have had to eat all the candy myself!
