A Funny Thing Happened....

... on my way to meet my baby for dinner the other day.

I saw a stoned looking cow standing on the curb opposite the shophouses in the Aman Suria area... it was just there staring blankly at all the cars that drove by.
(You'll have to take my word on it, I couln't take a photo as I was speeding past at about 70kmh and only had enough time to think: "WTF?" to myself)

P was very clever and suggested that it was the Chinese restaurants in the area keeping some fresh stock in case of emergencies like a sudden and voluminous order of black pepper beef.
(Riiiiiiiight........)

"Moo?"

It's just so strange to find a moo-moo standing there seeing as that area and the surrounding areas are so developed...
(What? It cantered over from One Utama?)
(Or is it some eccentric millionaire's pet from Tropicana?)

Strange.... very strange.

Anyway, hope that you all have a great weekend ahead - see you on Monday!
(Next week, I'll be posting up about Sri Paandi's @ TTDI and Vincenzo's @ One Bangsar so check back for more food then)


Cheers,
J

Need a cure for your amazement at seeing a cow in the street? Try a trip to the sub-continent.

Stoned (or bored) looking cows standing in the street blocking every form (and size) of transportation as the drivers try to squeeze around without disturbing said deity are 'de rigueur' for the streets of New Dehli, where I sometimes think the cows are taking the piss - considering some of the places they get to (such as walking against the traffic down the main arterial during peak-hour, or simply wandering past the heavily-armed guards out the front of the Indian President's residence, in order to have a pick at the well-manicured lawns!).

Mooooo! Hee Haw!

Stoned (or bored) looking cows standing in the street blocking all forms (and sizes) of traffic as they try to squeeze around without distrubing said deity are 'de rigueur' for the streets of New Delhi, where I sometimes think the cows are taking the piss - considering some of the places they get to, such as walking against the traffic, down the middle of Delhi's main arterial highway during peak hour, or wandering past the heavily-armed guards out the front of the Indian President's residence, just to have a pick at the well-manicured lawns!

Fun blog.

Moooo! He Haw!

Try your best not think of it...
It's very hard to be vegetarian - so many yummy things that you cannot eat....!

to Merv:
Wow - that's a very diverse family you got there.... Your family gatherings must be a real blast!
*lol*

to donkeyblog:
Haha.
Shall put that on my "to do" list - New Delhi sounds really interesting.
:)
Would it be hard to find a good steak there though?

to donkeyblog:
Oh... and thanks!
(Glad you had fun reading my babbling)

DonkeyBlog said...

Yeah, steak not so easy ... unless you're into Buffalo Steaks! Bring a whole swag of toothpicks!, and a lassoo of floss!

Sorry 'bout the double comments earlier ... Blogger is messin' wif me moind.

to donkeyblog:
No worries, dude.
:)

OMG - Is it really that tough?
(sounds painful)
Haha.
OK then, I have been warned!
So, I think it's best that I stick to my juicy steaks here in Malaysia.

(Thanks for the heads up!)
;)

Don't mean to blog-stalk, but here's something if you're into food ... and steaks in particular. Vanuatu beef is quite the most amazing meat I've ever eaten (for mine, much better than wagyu any time). It's the culmination of a great, sustainable, agricultural development project of about 15 years ago, in which coconut plantation-owners were encouraged to graze cattle beneath their crop, and therefore earn year-round revenue. The result of the "Cows Under Coconuts" project is tasty, succulant, 100% organic beef. If you ever have the opportunity (they do export), then have a munch. Mmmmm...

Hey, no probs!
Why would I think of such useful info as something like blog stalking anyway?

Now I've definately got Vanuatu beef on my list of things to eat - will definately look out for it (never seen it around in Malaysia tho) and will tell you whether it knocked my socks off or not.
(Better than Wagyu?? This I HAVE to try!)
