Lovely picture from Brenda, I can just imagine the onslaught of cooking aroma when the alleyway is bustling with people.
More from Friday Fictioneers here.
Mai Lai and Nasi Goreng
Mai Lai turned down the alley. I pulled my scarf across my face and followed her.
There was no one around to disrupt my plan.
Foreigners avoided Kai-Tok’s alleys where I had a meeting with a corrupt official.
A container ship from Mozambique was loading humanitarian supplies at the docks, and the harbour agent demanded a bribe to release the shipment.
He was waiting for us with a steaming bowl of fried rice.
My taste buds exploded.
I confirmed the export documents. Thankyou.
Then Mai Lia cuffed and arrested him.
It was the best Nasi Goreng we have ever eaten.
