Buka Puasa, Rama V


Put together a group of people with good food, comfortable ambience, flows of wine and it will soon filled with laughter and a heck of a good time. It is hard to stay composed despite being in this fine Thai cuisine restaurant. The buffet line, the ooohs and aaahs, the jokes are hard to miss. Over heard during dinner;

Is the oyster half in, or half out?! <Intelligent quote of the day>

Suck the oysters! <Authoritative>

In Thai, bitter gourds are called “Fakiu” <Suggestive quote>

Hey! I wanna touch Meens’ pad pad ! <Feline curiosity>

Why are you vandalizing my table?! <Caught RED HANDED>

Tis is exactly what I keep telling people when they asked me how I can keep coming up with silly one liners. But the thing is, I DON'T have to. The makan crew just keep blurting them out all the time.

So easy being us right? Just quote them cukup lah. :)
