catch them if you can

Don't you just hate it when that boss ( U kanot wait ah ??) of that ultra famous stall in da backstreets with the impossible crowd just frowns at you instead of thanking you for coming ? ( & to think that you had just braved through that awful jam for 38 minutes just to find the RM2 an hour parking lot 100m from this place ?)

...and so you can't blame the quite fed-up "lets get the f%@# hell out of here and eat somewhere else lah ! " fuming ( you think its free ah ?) retort ( I am not starving lah ) from the jaded odd couple as they engaged in yet another round of food bickering... sommore right beside the broken table with the equally patient-less exasperated office Boss (with spotted tie) with his innocent secretary sitting near the wash basin ( or issit the toilet ?)

but have no fear....for here in this recently declared World Heritage Site is the fastest hands on the Island, if not the world. And much more pleasant.







The poetry in dynamic motion Gang sets up the stall beside the drain sometime in the afternoon with pots and bowls . And then the tables and chairs , all within minutes and after the morning market hours here in Ayer Itam, Penang.

Ending sometime at 10 pm. After selling around 1000 bowls daily Monday to Friday and a "couple of thousands" on weekends ( he say one ).

Impossible ... affordable & tasty RM2.50 a bowl. Get ready to be served within 60 seconds upon order.

A world record .De Ayer Itam Penang Laksa

real Ayer Itam , Penang ok ( mega famous hyper fast dun pray pray)

with great power, comes greater responsibility...misusing is bad for health. like a frown. but chicks like bad boys and tastebuds love asam laksa. life is such an irony, isnt it? sigh...

tried this only once, right beside the drain near the market. it was good, but it was WAY back then. something happened some years ago and I refrain from laksa for quite some time now. :(

yalah. the standard of this stall had dropped. some more people began to dislike the idea of it near the drain. once someone said he saw a giant rat in the drain.

nowadays, people said the stall inside the market (with a deaf staff) is better.

ling239

michelle
that eternal question finally now answered...
...good girls like bad boyz cos they just wanna have fun.

this place is good for speed ( purists like some will be truly nauseated as you have sweetly aromatised)

j2kfm
they are good in so far as they can really sell. You will notice we seldom go into taste details ( coz its unmentionable most times)

lucia
