Don't See, Just Eat

My favourite 'chee cheong fun' fella has disappeared for more than a month already, I was kind of missing him, especially on Sundays cos I used to hang out there with my best buddy during breakfast time. Where had he gone to, I wondered, perhaps he has retired for good....

To me, he makes the best chee cheong fun but he is the most bad tempered seller I have ever seen. Last time he used to have his 2 handsome teenage sons to help him and he used to shout and reprimand them in front of us customers... Really pity his 2 sons then but they always keep quiet nevertheless, furthermore, they were so courteous to us customers...

Then last week, while I was driving past the stall, I just gave a glance, ho and behold, he was there!!! Wah, I was so happy leh... Quickly I parked the car and went up to him, he was sitting there, smoking away. I asked him "yau moe (got anymore)?" He said "yau....(got)"...

Before I could say anything else, he was up and preparing the chee cheong fun for me... and if most of you are wondering what happened to the cigarette he was holding.... Well, he just left it at the side of his table edge, didnt even wash or wipe his hands, he began cutting up the chee cheong fun with his bare hands, putting the onions with his bare hands, so on and so forth...... I prefer not to look, I began looking somewhere.... (I guess it is better not to look than to look and not eat... Thank God, no stomach ache....)

  13. to HKK, yes, u r right, tastier cos of the 'indirect' spices added.

    to raynebow... its opposite the canning gdn market, in a corner coffeeshop, u can easily find him, there r only 2 stalls there, one selling wanton mee and he is selling the ccf just outside the shop. sure smoking one..
