Pasar malam essentials

Without fail and with utter confidence, Celeste will remind me to get her “steamed sweet corn” from pasar malam (night market). Every thursday, that is.

As for missus, she can’t do without apom; local wafer thin crepe made from rice flour and coconut milk batter.

For me, its always the battle between fried carrot cake and baked salted chicken. Recently, the owner of the baked chicken stall shared an anecdote with me. He mentioned that men prefer to buy from him as compared to others.

Why? Apparently, his fowl has aphrodisiac effect on manhood!! Wow!! That’s great news as it’s cheaper than having to get tongkat ali or even the blue pill..

The verdict? The fowl did not turn me into Casanova.
