So mrbrown is on a road trip to bring you new and exciting stories about the Land-of-the-Crooked-Bridge-Builder-Wannabe-Then-Change-Mind (Malaysia), and I’m stuck here in Singapore covering new and exciting developments, three at a time, about the elections.
And I can tell you now, the ground is not sweet. At lunch at Zion Road Food Centre, Hay Mee Man recognises me, asks me how things are, thanks me for talking about his Hay Mee on this here blog, and then tells me things are no good with him and his Hay Mee business.
You see, there are now two other Big Prawn Noodle stalls in the very same Food Centre! The bastards!
So, Hay Mee Man tells me he’s shutting down at the end of this month.
That’s about all I caught of his mumbly Hokkien, apart from asking me whether I had tried the other stalls’ offerings. He did give me $2 off a bowl of Big Prawn Noodles as reward for blogging about his stall, and for not trying the other stalls’ offerings.
Go and watch The Magic Fundoshi! Last day! Hurry!
