KUALA TERENGGANU: Passengers of the Payang Water Taxi can now enjoy Nasi Tenong on board.

Cas Ligas Sdn Bhd (CLSB), which operates Payang Water Taxi, has introduced the Nasi Tenong package as a new attraction for the month of Ramadan.

Its chairman Zakaria Dagang said he was confident that the initiative could revive the tradition of using tenong or tiffin carrier among people travelling by water taxi on the Terengganu River.

“The tiffin carrier is synonymous with the traditional Malay community. We want to revive the use of tenong,” he said at the breaking of fast and launching of the package here on Tuesday night, Bernama reported.

The package contains catfish cooked with tempoyak (fermented durian paste) and nasi arab.

However, the Nasi Tenong package is limited to 32 passengers daily and booking is required.

Zakaria also said the public could break their fast on the boat by bringing their own food while enjoying the beauty of the drawbridge and other state landmarks during the river cruise.

“During Ramadan, we allow our customers to bring their own food and charge only RM15 for adults and RM10 for children.”
