In the Malaysia, bubur lambuk is a special dish that is not to be missed in the holy month of Ramadhan.
People enjoy this delicious dish for iftar, and it is only sold during the month of Ramadhan.
In Kuala Lumpur, the most popular bubur lambuk comes from Kampung Baru and the best comes from Aunty Sham’s stall, Bubur Lambuk Warisan Kak Sham which is located across the street from the Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru.
We never fail to buy Aunty Sham’s delicious bubur lambuk at least a few times each Ramadhan.
Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk is so popular that some people even cheated the customers by claiming that their bubuk lambuk is the Bubur Lambuk Warisan Kak Sham
Today we got to enjoy the tasty bubur lambuk for the first time this Ramadhan.
Usually we will be having our bubur lambuk on the first few days of Ramadhan, but this year my father had been very busy that it was postponed until today.
It is delicious as always and eating Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk is very nostalgic because it is what I have been waiting for every Ramadhan ever since I can remember.

Today is the first day of Ramadhan and in Malaysia, ‘bubur lambuk’ is one of the most popular food for iftar or breaking fast.
There are different types of ‘bubur lambuk’ in Malaysia, and in Kuala Lumpur the most popular bubur lambuk is ‘Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru’; which is my favourite.
Today I am going to have ‘Bubur Lambuk Kampung Baru’ for iftar so we went to Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk stall in Kampung Baru to buy the ‘bubur lambuk’.
It was very, very hot over there and the sun was shining brightly over our heads.
I was already hungry at the time and I became hungrier as I looked at the bubur lambuk.
Aunty Sham’s ‘bubur lambuk’ is very, very tasty and the best that I’ve ever tasted.
Every year, during the month of Ramadhan, we’ll drive to Kampung Baru just to buy her tasty ‘bubur lambuk’.
In Kuala Terengganu, one of the most special part of Ramadhan is the ‘bedil’.
How I wish there is ‘bedil’ in Kuala Lumpur too, to signal the time for Iftar and Imsak.
Below is a post that I wrote on September 28, 2010 about photographing the bedil in Kuala Terengganu.
Photographing The Bedils
In Kuala Terengganu people break their fast after the sound of the ‘bedil’ in the Ramadhan.
There were ‘bedil‘s on the 2nd day of Eid until 7th day of Eid too.
On the 5th day of Eid, my dad took me to Bukit Pak Apil in Kuala Terengganu to watch ‘bedil’ shooting.
First we have to wait for the sound of ‘dup’.
Then we started snapping lots and lots and lots of photos as the ‘bedil‘ exploded in the sky into a gigantic umbrella of colourful lights right above our heads.
Then the umbrella turned into tiny sparkles of lights like colourful rain drops and faded into tiny umbrellas of smoke.
We went there again on the 6th and 7th day of Eid to snap more photos.
It was very, very hard to snap the photos because we have to aim at the right spot of where there the wind would blow the ‘bedil’.
We also need to snap at the right moment before the beautiful ‘bedil’ faded into umbrellas of smoke in the sky.
We also had to squat down fearing the loud sound made us jump and fall down the cliff.
I snapped all the above photos by myself!
Now we are in the holy month of Ramadhan.
So, Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk Kampung Baru is back!
Well, lots of people will never understand why the porridge is so popular that people will be queuing in a very, very long line at Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru daily during Ramadhan for the free porridge when other mosques and some hotels are also giving away free bubur lambu;, until they had tasted the tasty porridge that is cooked using the original recipe.
If you do not want to queue, try the ones from Aunty Sham’s stall as Aunty Sham uses the same recipe as she used to cook the porridge at the Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru for years.
Since my father was very busy during the week days, this year I only got to eat Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk on Saturday July 13, 2013 which was the fourth day of fasting.
And it was very, very tasty.
Aunty Sham sells the best bubur lambuk Kampung Baru, so if you are looking for the original and tasty bubur lambuk, please buy them from her stall 🙂
Like the previous years, Aunty Sham’s stall is located in front of the Al-iSLAM Specialist Hospital (AiSH); opposite the Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru.
