Tonight my car club would be gathering in Setapak, and as we headed out this was the sight from our apartment:
|for a worthy cause|
It was indeed an amazing sight to see the Petronas Twin Towers awashed in pink, illuminated in the signature pink of Estee Lauder Companies’ annual global breast cancer awareness campaign.
We got to the restaurant where we were supposed to rendezvous only to find it closed, and so we headed to Sri Rampai nearby where we would be certain of ample parking on a Friday night.
|the best in town? we think not|
|an unpleasant surprise awaits|
finally decided on Wahab’s Cendol, and while my car club members met to discuss
matters pertaining to an upcoming event, Cat and Brendan proceeded to order. Since
we’ve already had dinner at home, Cat and Brendan decided to share a bowl of 1Mee
Rebus Ayam. The three of us had the signature 2Cendol and I opted
for a bowl with additional red bean.
1A dish made of
yellow egg noodles with a spicy slightly sweet curry-like gravy. The gravy is
made from potatoes, curry powder, water, salted soybeans, dried shrimps, and
peanuts. The dish is garnished with a hard boiled egg, calamansi limes, spring
onions, Chinese celery, green chillies, fried firm tofu (tau kwa), fried
shallots and bean sprouts.
2A traditional dessert
of coconut milk, jelly noodles made from rice flour with green food coloring
(usually derived from the pandan leaf), shaved ice and palm sugar. Other
ingredients such as red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly, creamed corn, might
also be included

|the so-called signature dish|
Mee Rebus Ayam and three bowls of Cendol came to RM14.80 which was just about
right considering we already had dinner and were merely looking for some
comfort food. Apparently this shop has made a name for itself Cendol, although truth
be told, we’ve had way better from push cart stalls.
big is question is however: would we come again? We’re very sorry Mr. Wahab,
but the answer is regretfully in the negative. We do not take kindly to being
treated like criminals at the cashier’s counter. Despite having written the order down on a clear piece of order chit, this very bright and intelligent
person actually makes you recount your order not once, but twice, all the while
giving you the distinct impression that he does not believe a word you are
So Mr. Wahab, if you insist on treating your customers with disdain and distrust, then we have no other choice but to consider ourselves dissed!
