nuts ! we lose

Menglembu , the little town just outside Ipoh , looks quaint & slow , as you would expect. But the few thousand feet high Kledang Hills stretching behind are quite picturesque and is a popular hiking trail for the active and also the old.

In fact some of you may have thought there are wild running cows ( lembu) but instead what greets you strikingly at the roundabout at the entrance as you come from Ipoh Town are some giant GroundNuts. One is even oddly standing upright , pointing to Heaven or as if to tell you something.

Maybe the Ipoh Storm of 7th May 2009 ?

True , it is world famous for the groundnuts bearing its namesake
Now you know !

We were looking for the small van , with the burnt meat.

Its easy to find , near the backStreet ( where else) evening market.
We were taken aback at first impression ,
as the skinny vendor & companion din inspire confidence tho,
knowing the Xxx!treme reputation of da charred meat.

Lo & behold !
face to face at last with the RM10 meat of meats !

verdict: fail

maybe tomorrow 7th May would be better ?

Why a failed verdict for that nice thick cuts of swine fat cuts. Nice quaint town Menglembu is, so that's where lembu comes into play.

How come fail?? What was missing?? Skin not crispy izit?

O.o The pork looks delicious, curious, why did it fail? Menglembu.. Hehe, haven't heard of this place before, cute name.
Should've stuck to the nuts, BSG! Or just the anticipation of today's nail-biting showdown. Even an optimist like me cannot see how the lawfully (wrongfully!) removed can possibly be reinstated. We wait!

v will really never know how to determine whether they got nuts when it was carried out via the backdoor, switching off the current to block off messages and announcements and hving a battalion of police to guard their nuts when the police should be independent...it's a sad sojourn to malaysia. perhaps a nicely chopped crispy plate of roast pork can do the trick....

we miss the time when we were of happy towns, where the cows run free and the nuts were huge. we miss the time when people were wise and not colourblind. we miss the time when there's hope and not a nightmare that came with teh tarik violence. and i am already missing the rm-10-oh-so-much-but-i-can-still-finish siew yoke that i've never met.
