Kong Sai-style Stuffed Beancurd Pouch with Minced Meat & Fish Paste (RM12/USD3)
Writing anonymously behind this ‘Motormouth veil’ has granted me immunities; escaping from awkward moments of being recognized when religiously snapping photographs (it’s a mental illness, supposedly) of the same plate of noodles or inducing crazed stares from passerby when lying belly first on the ground while shooting a flower, fungi or a bug.
But of course, out of these five-odd years of continuously feeding you with my doses of sumptuous poisons, there were those infrequent times when the random uncle/auntie manning the stall reacted in unpredictable ways.
I got reprimanded. Shooed away. Scolded. Laughed at. Ignored. Yet, I was happy about it. This burning, indomitable spirit of a ghost writer.
Somewhere, somehow … things ran slightly off track. And I guess, something’s gotta give. It’s a delicate balance of being myself vs this brash, forever-hungry Motormouth.
