Anyone as wuliao as I am?

It's Saturday night at 11.18pm.

Ten years ago I would have just gone out, or still waiting for my friend to pick me up to the hottest joints in Ipoh. Blame it on my temporary memory loss (see my below post on peri-menopause?) I can only remember the name Yahoo and Y2K. I clearly remember the other bars alright, just not their names. Or maybe it's late for me now :P

Oh yeah, the discotheque called Discovery where you 'fing tau'. (head banging)

Last year when I mentioned Yahoo, my friend shoosh-ed me and shut me up immediately, telling me not to be so 'san bah' (back dated, old-fashion). It's now a happy home for some well-known chain mamak store I think? If I wasn't drinking and getting drunk then I'll be at one of those many coffee places then, enjoying either latte or my Earl Grey tea. Think Antap.

Anyway, yeah. Those were the days. Now when I go back in November all I can think of and plan is places for food, and children friendly..... Mary Browns! Kakakakaaaaa..... That's for Aidan ler, for myself I have my fave haunts.

1. Canning Garden corner shop beside Arif Store for hor-hee
2. Ipoh Garden 'Sungei Wang' for the pork 'lou-shi-fun'
3. Ipoh Garden South corner shop for ham jin biang!
4. Gunung Rapat for char-koay-teow and assam laksa (plus the heoh biah!)
5. Pasir Puteh for Bak Kut Teh!!
6. Bercham for the crab 'toong fun'
7. Mum loves dragging me to Gopeng for the hot chicken porridge on a hot day in a hot car.

Whoa!! Think also I drooling liao.

Now I have to go ransack the kitchen for ............. a bar of Snickers :(
