She: Psst. Wanna go to this Malay dating place?
Me: WTF? Now? Is almost 3 am! Wait. Do the bouncers even let in interracial couples? Lol.
She: Of course, lah. You have been featuring late night eating places on your IG, kan? Nanti, u complain I tak ajak…
Me: Yeah, but 3 am is early morning, not late night. And it can’t be dating. I suspect those customers sneaked out of their homes. Haha.
She: I’m starving. I ‘ll go alone but I’m scared.
Me: OK. Only if you come get me, and you pay.
So we ended up in this strange place in Kampung Baru. Is called Suraya’s and they serve awesome Kelantanese food. True enough, the place was packed with couples.
Surprisingly, for a place this popular, the service crew is exceptionally patient, courteous and friendly. Quite unlike that previously crowded nasi lemak place nearby.
Anyway, I’m happy I get to eat blue Nasi Kerabu at 4am. On the way back, sentimental me asked if she still has Headwind’s Suraya in her car’s USB stick.
She: WTF, man?
