In proper English, it means “Where shall we eat?” But locally, we know what it means when someone ask, “Eat where?”
This is the question that usually have no answers. In my family, no one wants to make the decision. Then, at other times, everyone seems to have their preference and we ended up couldn’t decide to follow whose decision.
Then again, there are times when everyone says, “Cincai lah…” (just anything) and yet, when you made the choice, they will say, “Don’t want lah. Why not we eat Indian/Chinese/hawker/Western……”
So, you see, Eat Where is a very difficult question to answer. Don’t you hate it? No one seems to have any idea where to eat and yet, they don’t want to eat when you made the choice.
Of course, there are lots of times when everyone is agreeable to only one place and that makes thing simple. No need to drive all over town, undecided.
