Each and every one of us has our own unique way of enjoying food; but one very common (and Malaysian) thing many of us love to do is to ‘banjir anything and everything we eat. In fact, we can drench our food in almost anything! From curry, soup, sauce, even gravy!

Well, if you relate to this on a spiritual level, odds are you face a ton of struggles, too! Here are some you’re probably familiar with:

 

1. When you love the ‘banjir life but your food gets mushy and soggy if you leave it soaking too long

You have to admit, the texture of your food does get soft and mushy after awhile, but at least this trains us to eat faster!

 

2. Thanks to your love for all things ‘banjir-ed, you’ve given up wearing white/light coloured clothes completely

Too. Many. Stains.

Eating drenched or soupy food often means risking getting splattered by all the curry and gravy no matter how careful you try to be. You’ve probably resorted to using a makeshift bib every once in awhile too.

 

3. When you’re at a Chinese shop and you constantly have to ask the waiter if they have any ‘sap (wet) dishes

The thing about eating in Chinese restaurants is the struggle of needing to decide on a few different dishes to order. For you, it’s even worse because you can’t just order the usual Marmite Chicken or ‘kangkung belacan’. No. You need a dish that comes with lots and lots of gravy.

 

4. When the only burger you enjoy is Ramly burger because of all its saucy goodness

This is one burger you have to eat either by the road side or use a plate because all that saucy goodness will come oozing out in all directions…but that’s what makes it so good!

 

5. Things always get messy because of all that extra sauce or gravy in your food

Banjir‘-ing anything usually means things are about to get quite messy and you always end up getting sauce on everything nearby; the table, the chair, your face, maybe even on your friend sitting next to you. Totally worth it though.

 

6. That judgmental look you get from your friends when you drench your food

Yes, it can look quite unappetizing at times but it tastes so much better than it looks! Your friends just never seem to understand. Nobody understands!

 

7. The struggle that comes with finding good food with delicious ‘kuah is too real

When you’re the kind of person who enjoys the ‘banjir life, how your ‘kuah tastes is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to come across places that serve delicious food and kuah‘.

 

8. It’s humanly impossible for you to start eating before the anneh brings you your ‘kari

Whether it’s banana leaf rice or a simple ‘roti canai‘, you need your ‘kuah because there’s just no way you’re going to start eating until you have a sufficient amount doused all over your foodHow to eat if everything’s so dry?!
