Eat where?

In proper English, it means “Where shall we eat?” But locally, we know what it means when someone ask, “Eat where?”

Jelly with fruits

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……”

Jelly with fruits

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.

    Lol… that’s very true. Even after my friends have narrowed down to mamak, we still can’t decide whether to go this mamak or that mamak. Wah! I never thought of mixing wine (adult beverage) with ribena (kid beverage) 😮

    […] sure I win this time. You see, at meal times, my kids and I will be fighting (in a nice way) over where to eat and usually, they opt for Western foods while I want my spicy, sour, tomyam. 4 votes against 1 vote […]

    I also got this problem everytime dad ask us where to eat, or with friends that time, we were like walking around the mall for half an hour or more just to think which restaurant to go in.
