Rainy night ramblings

Big fat lazy raindrops in a continuous stream but it didn’t bother me none as I was warm as I could be in the freezing bus reading Jonathan Powell. Filter & The Crystal Method was tripping on the iPod; Spawn: The Album has got to be the most under-rated and unrecognized rock albums of all time.

I felt like murdering a nice hot curry for dinner when I realized that the Adam Road Hawker Center stop was just down the road. A quick hop, a short walk and my Tulang Merah was cooked and wrapped in multiple layers of plastic deposited in a shopping bag along with the worst excuse for a baguette in the world.

Stew-like liquor thickened with egg with bits of crunchy cabbage, the slow-cooked mutton bone marrow that is Tulang Merah fills your being with a sense of warmth and nostalgia. The only concession I make for the worst baguette in the world is to toast it and have a dip of salted limes to cut the richness of the marrow.

Or is it limed salt? Doesn’t matter because Tulang Merah is so wrong that it has to be right.
