Ciggies Save Lives

Chosim was telling us a story yesterday during one of our regular mamak sessions. He sat on his chair, old-Chinese-storytelling-uncle-style.


Chosim: Last weekend, I was deep frying keropoks.

C. Lengus: Wah, you can cook?

Chosim: Of course lah. Don’t interrupt me… I was deep frying keropoks my Ah Ling’s mum brought back from the East Coast.

Me: What kind of keropok?

Chosim: You know, the long thick cigar type. I think it’s made of fish meat.

Me: Ah… The fishy type.

Chosim: Anyway, I was standing there looking at the thing wondering how long I should let it fry, when suddenly, the keropok EXPLOSIONS!

Awed silence.

Chosim: I mean, it just exploded. There was cooking oil everywhere. Scared the shit out of me.

C. Lengus: Wahh… Got kena you or not?

Me: Yah. How big was the patch of oil?

Chosim: The whole stove was covered with it. Luckily…

C. Lengus and me: What? What???

Chosim: I was standing quite far from the stove at the time. Smoking my ciggie. I tell you, smoking that ciggie saved my life man.

C. Lengus and me: -_-   -_-

  1. clearly, that explosion was not caused by the ciggie, rite? 😛

    anttyk: Nope. Chosim stored the keropok lekor in the freezer. Took it out and fried it. The trapped water inside the keropok caused the ‘explosion’.

  2. .. and they tell us that ciggarette is harmful for u. :p

    anttyk: Haha. Phillip Morris should pay me for the positive advertisement.
