Note from Ms. Yummy~licious:
Price ranging below RM3 per packet. Also known as lengkuas in Bahasa Malaysia.

Note from Wiki:
The Galangal plant or Blue Ginger is a rhizome with culinary and medicinal uses (Thai: Ka (ข่า), Malay: lengkuas (Alpinia galangal), Traditional Mandarin: 南薑, Simplified Mandarin: 南姜, T:高良薑/S:高良姜, Cantonese: lam keong, 藍薑, Vietnamese: Riềng). It used in various oriental cuisines (for example in Thai cuisine Tom Yum soups and Dtom Kha Gai, and throughout Indonesian cuisine, for example, in Nasi Goreng). Though it resembles the ginger that it is related to, there is little similarity in taste.
