Yee Hou came to Penang to visit not too long ago and I managed to find some time to meet up with him for breakfast.
To all of you guys who don't know, Penangnites don't have scrambled eggs & toast for breakfast.
We go to COFFEE SHOPS like this.
Where we have all sorts of people there that eat food like THIS.
With people from KL like THIS
Now let me tell you a bit about us Penang people.
Whenever I tell people that I'm from Penang they go "Wah Penang people damn kiam siap wan (stingy)".
I always defended my people.
WE ARE NOT KIAM SIAP!!!! NO NO NOT AT ALL!!!
The same thing I was trying to drum into Yee Hou's head and it all was fine and rosy until I saw this sign.
"WILL CHARGE RM0.30 PER PERSON FOR THOSE NOT ORDERING DRINKS... THANK YOU!"
SUMMORE DARE TO SAY "THANK YOU!" AT THE END OF THE NOTE.
I personally feel that is too much already! I mean, if I were to go to Coffee Bean with 10 friends and sit on a table with only one friend ordering a drink (while the rest drink water).... then fine... go ahead and charge me that 30 sen.
But I'm at a KOPITIAM.
No air-con, no nice chairs to sit on, no coffee table to put handphone and look cool and hardly any chicks like this to look at.
AND THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME 30 SEN IF I DON'T ORDER A DRINK?!?!
It's just gonna be a matter of time before I walk into a kopitiam and see a sign like this.
Shame on you and YOUR LOUSY KIAM SIAP KOPITIAM!!!
PS: Eh Linsey, Leon, Matt, Rayvin.... wanna go there for breakfast tomorrow?
