Recently there’s been a lot of new places popping up all over Kuching.
Chicago 7 is one of those new fast food restaurants that has only recently started business here.
The franchise outlet offers all the standard American-style fast food like burgers, hot dogs, fries and “broasted” chickens. I like it. They are pretty much like your regular KFC or McDonald’s, except the quality of food here is a lot better and cleaner.
The only problem is that Chicago 7 is new. Very new.
They are so new that half the stuff on their menu isn’t even available yet.
When I was there last night, the hot dogs are sold out, the chickens are not here, and the only thing they have left are the burgers. But even then the burgers at Chicago 7 are not the same as the ones I’m used to.
For instance, I’m used to burgers being called either “chicken burgers” or “beef burgers”. Over at Chicago 7, they don’t call it Bar-B-Q Beef Burger. They call it Bar-B-Q Cow.
So if you wanna order a beef burger, you tell them you wanna order a cow.
And I couldn’t resist pulling some lame jokes on the poor cashier.
Cashier: What would you like to order?
Kenny: I’ll have a Bar-B-Q Cow.
Cashier: Bar-B-Q Cow? Or meal?
Kenny: Just the cow.
Cashier: Just the cow?
Kenny: Yeah. Do I have to feed the cow grass or… what?
Kenny: Does it come with milk?
Kenny: So how am I gonna fit it in the car?
Kenny: So if I want milk shake, I just take the cow and shake it a bit, is it?
The cashier was so put off by my lame jokes, her expression was exactly like this.
I think she was very annoyed lah. Because in the end, she did not even deliver my order!
I just attended the Pack The Floor For 24 dance marathon organised by HELP University students together with Magician David Lai, Christien & Lavin, Belinda Chee, Juwita Suwito, Liang and Hannah Tan. Those kids are gonna dance for 24 hours in an effort to raise fund for the AIDS Society.
I have attended many college events in the past, but that was one of the most fun and well-organised charity events I have attended in a long time.
