I wasn't the most well spoken kid in school when it komes to English speaking and from my memory I was pretty sure they can't speak much mandarin either and I guess that's where miscommunication and unhappiness were developed.
I hardly have any Malay friends even until today but I was very lucky that I found my favourite Malay Kakak at the most unexpected place - work.
To be honest I do love some things about our Malay friends, their food and of kourse all the minahs minahs. (malay chicks in my understanding)
|I've no klue who are they. Picture from Google Search - Minahs. But pretty hot right? Regret, never had a malay minah girl friend.|
So when my ex-colleagues told me they were going to Geylang Serai Bazaar I was pretty excited cause I was pretty sure I kan have some Malay food and also fest my eyes with some minahs. Of course also have a good time gathering with my ex-colleagues.
Seriously, who needs Zouk when you have lights like this in Geylang?
So besides the lightings and all I guess the highlight has to be these Malay Kuay Kuay. It feels like Chinese New Year but only better because their Kuay Kuays are really sweet and the Makcik (Malay Aunties) are really very warm. I mean as long as you can speak or understand Malay. That's one thing that turns me off sometimes. Some of these aunties kouldn't speak English which is why we need Minah friends! YAY!
|Because we can!|
|Just sample only. Free lah sia!|
|Kookies that looks like donut! Pretty much.|
And you know how we chinese gives these red packet thing for kids during CNY? They have something similar too but look at those designs! POWER!
|"Malay Red Packet" - Cantik!|
|Pretty Lighting is Pretty~|
The reason why it is the mother of all bazaar is because it's really huge, it's so huge it is like few bus stop worth of shops and I heard each of these stall can Kost you up to $10,000 SGD a month. W-O-A-H!
It was a random meet up indeed but it sure was fun. It's always fun with these friends. Why? Is it because we kommunicated better as kompared to how I did when I was a kid or is it because we are way more open minded than everyone else? I wouldn't say we are geniuses but I would say we take life easier. We do not go all sensitive and on and on about how you are insulting my race or aku religion like people online. We laugh at each other's kulture and at the same time learn from it. I am glad I have Fadilah as a friend, I've learn many malay words and also about their kulture while we laughed at it. hahaha.
Like Rachie's best joke - "You know why the Malay guys go to Mosques on Fridays? Because Thanks God It's Friday." You have to admit this is pretty funny.
kan't wait for our next adventure together!
