Conveniently, there's a bak kut teh stall outside my shop and I've always reminded myself to give it a try one day. Sure, it may not be as rich and great as the one you get in Klang, but at least it will satisfy.
Recently, the owner of the bak kut teh stall came to my shop and we had some small talk. Don't ask me how...but the conversation started to deviate. We suddenly were talking about urine. He said he drinks his urine every morning and forces his whole family to do it (even though some of them vomit it out). He maintains its good for the health. I'm not going to discuss anything on this topic...there are people who believe its really good and swears by it. The thought of him drinking his cup of pee every morning...well that will be at the back of my mind when I eat his bak kut teh.
REMINDER TO TRY BAK KUT TEH STALL OUTSIDE MY SHOP - CANCELLED INDEFINITELY
To top it off, he says he always dilute his bak kut teh soup to save money. This guy is a real champion...he lost 3 customers for life (me and my 2 staff who were present). Very smooth talker...
(Hmm, next time he buy medicines from me I should state that I have a tendency to lick every pill and put it back in the box...)
