It's Black! It's White! It's Micro Jession!

There are a lot of names to this drink. Some call it Hak Bak, some call it Cham, others just say soya bean cincau (cincau = leong fun = seaweed jelly). Whatever I you we they he she it call(s) it, it's a white colored drink with black jelly strips.

Lunch time. My supervisor Yong, guai lan colleagues James, Paul, Sunny, Elvin and I squeezed ourselves as usual into a car like self-packing sardines and chose Taman Megah as our lunch spot that day. We'd usually go there for the Gu Lou Yok (Old fashioned pork) rice. There, the drinks man would come and greet us and take our orders in English and Hokkien.

"SHAMONE!!" (that's Paul in the background...)

That day, the man's daughter (or so I pressume) came to take our order. I had a sudden craving for soya bean cincau and I didn't know what they call it here so I just said "soya bean cham leong fun" and hoped that it would be 'standard' enough for this area.

"OK, one Micro Jession" said the lady.

I had no idea what she just said. Confused, I turned over to look at James...

"Yala, Michael Jackson mah" he said, that soya bean cincau is called Michael Jackson in this area.

I was dumbfounded.
And since Sunny always gets Michael Jackson and Lambo (Rambo) mixed up:

Soya bean + Cincau = Micro Jession @ Lambo


Anyho...

I finally own a laptop after so many months of waiting. I stated before in my previous post that I was considering only HP Compaq Presario V3700 series and also DELL Inspiron series but ended up buying something else. I've been told that it's not the best deal in town, but I'm loving it anyhow. Call me superficial if you may but I looooove how it feels - so solid!! So berqualiti!!

The Y410
