St. Iggy Saturday


Black Money
Swiped from Brian Howell.
Went to the market on Saturday with a few surprises in store. Firstly, DBKL contractors were clearing the bushes at the Taman United Market. I did not want to walk near as they were swinging 2-feet long machetes above head level. With people bustling below them, it was just like a freak accident waiting to happen. Don't worry, no "Final Destinaton" scene happened, but they did find some 'treasure' in the bushes! If you guessed snake... then you're wrong. It was a packet of Black Money. It's sad that people get sucked into these kind of scams. Greed is a strong thing and it overrides logic! Even the scratch-and-win schemes are alive and well along Jalan Tun Sambanthan. Ish. At the OUG market, a shady Malay guy was selling boxes of American Ginseng wrapped in brown paper packages.

"Suka hati you nak bayar berapa la..."

Can you imagine buying such a thing? Eeek. Breakfast was at Kuchai Lama. The famous dim sum shop at the row of shops really screws up all the parking spaces. Ish. Nak makan mee kari pun susah! Ended putting the car at the car wash while we had breakfast. Bad news for SK as the curry mee turned her tummy upside down that day. After breakfast, we went home and not long after, SK and I went out to settle stuff with her renovator and the management office. Chose the tiles, cabinets and finalized on the renovation details. Paid the downpayment too. Experienced the kepeningan at the management office. The Malay guy was clueless. The Indian guy just sat there playing FB. SK was writing a cheque for the renovation deposit and the guy wasn't sure what name to put as the payee:

"Erm, you letak 'The Management' la."

"Eh, you sure cek tu boleh clear ke macam ni?"


Amazing isn't it? Lunch was at home with mum. Had a simple soup with vegetables. At around 5:15pm, we headed out to church for the Parish Feast Day, celebrating St. Ignatius of Loyola. The last day of the tridiuum. We skipped all the boring talks and headed straight for the final mass and fellowship. Hehe. Food was mediocre. Tough curry chicken, extra-salty omelette, tasteless blanched vegetables, fried dumplings, fish fillet, fruits and soya bean. I took two cups of it and I felt pain in the middle of my abdomen. Shit. Hit the Beans Bonanza again.

We weren't quite satisfied with dinner, so we headed to Al-Azwath, Taman Equine. Called Peng to join us. Ordered some limau panas to wash down the curry chicken. SK ordered a naan set that three of us shared. Very satisfying. Quite a surprise that they gave sardine curry that actually came with pieces of sardines! And I loved their dhaal. Went to bed with a smile on my face. :P (But I had other reasons for that).
