Yesterday, I met redv and WF for dinner at Low Yau Kee for porridge as I wanted to try the fish porridge and steam chicken. The chicken is really yummy, very smooth and cukup rasa. Am ok with the fish porridge, I prefer the chu chap porridge there though.

Anyways, that is not my main intention of writing this post today.

The three of us were nicely eating and chatting, enjoying the food.. and suddenly, 3 malay men were standing right in front of our table.
WTF?!? Dont tell me they wanna eat chu chap???

Nope, nope.. we realised quickly that they are from DBKL and they are here for 'protection' money. They sat down, chatted and one of the stall owner quietly folded a 'package' beneath his newspapers and pass it to the DBKL men. It's Chinese newspaper, freaking obvious that they are not here to read it.
My blood boils just looking at this, I was staring at one of the DBKL man, who realised that I knew what they were doing. He 'collected' from the adjacent stall too. I was still staring.
By this time, he was slightly embarass as he walked sheepishly pass our table to rejoin his 'gang'. I really really wished I had my camera with me that day, would love to take their picture and send to The Sun.
Seems to me that the stall owners are used to this routine(maybe monthly or weekly). They did not complain, just went along with their business after the 3 men left. Its really sad that they are being extorted by government representatives. But if they dont pay, their stalls would be towed away and that cannot be done as this is their rice bowl. Its vicious.
Well, I hope the 3 prosperous sized officers enjoyed their non halal gains from non halal stalls (since they are selling pork ;p). At least I'm glad the money in their pockets are smeared with chu chap!

Maybe it's an advertising gimmick by the stall owner to have civic conscious patrons who did not bring their cameras to come back again the next time, trying to stalk the stall for the next few weeks or even months to have the opportunity to snap the action. And have it advertised freely on the Sun.

I know it's taseless no matter how you look at it.

Aiyah don't worrylah. They will get what's due if they believe what their religion is teaching them. Let me relate a story told by a friend of mine some years back. She had a customer who was always sick with mysterious diseases that baffled even the doctors. She has body aches and skin problems that couldn't be treated with conventional medicine. Her children also suffered the same ailments except her husband. Out of desperation, she seek a bomoh cum religious expert from Indonesia. According to this guy the money that her husband took back to feed the family is not halal, that is why they are struck with sickness that cannot be treated in the conventional way. Poor wife and children had to suffer due to the hubby's action.
