Last night Ming, Pierre and I had a bit of a guy's night out. Just the 3 of us. We started off with a steamboat dinner at Xiao Fei Yang in Pudu... which lasted some 2-3 hours then we headed off for drinks at this Mamak near Menara Citibank.
I think it was called Penang Nasi Kandar or something.
When we got to the Mamak Ming went straight to the rest room first. He came back about 10 minutes later with a big cheeky smile on his face and a plastic bag in his hand "WAH!!! THIS IS LIKE A SUPER MAMAK!!! EVERYTHING ALSO GOT!!!".
He dropped the plastic bag on the table and took out 3 Kinder Eggs. One for each of us.
He went on to explain: "These are the best man! You know like last time when we were young, why did we buy Mamee Monster? Because of the sticker inside! Same for Kinder eggs.. we buy for the little plastic toys we get inside".
So while talking we all unwrapped our egg. I ate my Kinder chocolate in the egg but Pierre and Ming didn't touch theirs.
They had clearly bought the egg only to assemble the toys and see what they got.
I assembled mine only to find a viking ship.
Ming was happy with his. He had a cute little blue eskimo toy that looked like this but with a face.
It even came with a sticker of a face that you could put on the face of the little blue figure. He thought it was really cute. Then I picked up his little eskimo to take a look and the face accidentally dropped out and fell on to the wet floor of the mamak. We were seated outside and it had just rained.
Ming went ballistic "NOOOOOoooo!!!! MY FACE... WHY YOU DROP MY FACE!!!!"
He kept saying "PICK IT UP !!! PICK IT UP!!!"
and guilty as anything I kept quiet for a while but Pierre backed me up
"NO MING!!! NOOO!!! It's all wet already!! It's gone!! It's washed away!!!"
Then Ming stood up and shouted
"I don't care!!! We going to buy more until we get back my ESKIMO!!!!".
Pierre volunteered to buy the second round. He suggested that we each buy a round. The second round came and... still no eskimo. In fact Ming got some stupid toy and I got something even more stupid...
Not sure what mine was but it looked like some kind of weird alien sperma.
Ming was frustrated after he opened his toy then he looked at me for a few seconds.
It was my turn to go buy. I went to the convenience store at the back of the Mamak and picked up 3 Kinder Eggs. When I put it on the counter the old man who owned the shop looked at me and then shook his head. Just before me he had probably seen Ming come twice to buy the Kinder eggs.
I avoided eye contact... out of shame, paid then ran away.
When I got back to the table we opened up all our Kinder eggs... no eskimo.
This is the mess we made by the end of the night.
And these were the toys we collected by the end of the night.
Each Kinder egg was like RM3.50 so we ended up spending 5 times more money on the Kinder Eggs than we did on the drinks at the Mamak.
Drinks at Mamak = RM6.10
Kinder eggs = RM 3.50 X 9 = RM31.50
Fun cheap thrills from opening up Kinder Eggs with friends = Priceless.
