What is the significance of this old, run-down, 9 storey flat on Jalan Bendahara Malacca, you say…?
Introducing “Kau-lau”… or 9 Storey flat… more notoriously known for suicides than any other place in Malacca… so say-eth my Malaccan colleagues, on my recent visit.
THE FOLLOWING NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT THE IDENTITIES OF THE INDIVIDUALS ;P
Says Robert/colleague : ” Ya la, we have 15 storey buildings also wat … but they dowan to jump. Still come to 9 storey flat to jump… (why like dat)…?!”
Says Kar Wai/other colleague: ” Ya man… better be careful where u park your car… otherwise.. end up hor, no car…!”
Anyway, we came here not for sightings of flyin EVEL KNIEVELs, but rather for charsiew fan and cheong… my fav! (bbq pork rice with intestine)
Alas! They didn’t have that silky-smooth, voluptuously taut intestine that my colleague was raving on about… ceh.. why like dat..
Nevermind, the SEMI TRANSLUCENT charsiew will do just fine. I love the way you can see thru the charsiew fat hanging in the window… casts everything in a gorgeous, greasy red hue… So wicked. so yum.
Price: low end
Attraction : Flyin Evel Knievels! (if u r lucky…. or NOT!)
MSG levels : high
