Every time I crave for a plate of nasi kandar,there is only one place that I would go.my usual "sayang;s place" that's the term of endearment I bestowed him.
As soon as he sees me approaching his store,he would holler out loud and clear,"sayang,apa khabar?" I would then respond likewise,"Sayang,I do good"
My usual dishes would be a slice or 2 beef ,2 or 3 lady fingers, a salted egg or in the absence of it,a fried egg is replaced and a deep fried drumstick and the price is,he always charges me for my order ................RM3 to RM4
Sometimes even my wife and children are amazed how come my "sayang" can offer me so cheap and even at times,he would say to me,"tak apa,tak apa, today free for you sayang"
There have been times when I asked him to,"kira mahal sikit la yang" he would say,"no no no,you 'sayang" got "sayang" price one la"
I guess the reasons for giving me the offer is that I have been patronizing him for a long time now,I have got to know his family members too, I joke a lot with me, I have helped him out with some "issues" before and sometimes I just sincerely ask,"How is your family doing?"
P/S : I am not a cheapo but I guess it is always nice to be nicer to others.....
