excuse me, you want girl?

look at the picture above, what would be the first thing that comes to your mind seeing this?

yes, for most malaysians, they would think of late nights out, football matches & most commonly, this one local drink, teh tarik, would pop up instantly in their minds.

this would be the famous mamak shop, as we malaysians call it, not only a hangout place for youngsters, but now elevated to a point where it is part of our culture living in this country.

well, it was the same case for me, as the average malaysian boy, until last night.

enjoying my teh tarik over a chat with a close friend, this lady in her early thirties suddenly came by us and baffled us both with a one liner in plain street-style mandarin,

"excuse me sirs, would you like the services of a girl now?"

looking at each other, we both declined her offer in unison, & then stared blankly at each other for a good whole minute before laughing our heads off.

these hookers are seriously taking their business to the streets now, goes to show how badly the malaysian economy is doing at this point.

practically, this has now become an inside joke within our clique. so the next time you hear one of us say "boss, you want girl?", you'd know what we'd be laughing at instead of getting question marks plastered above your head!
