Oct 6 (continue) – We went over the Teluk Cempedak at mid night for drinks and we chose a gerai nearest to the Hyatt Hotel. May’s teh tarik was promptly served in a nice ceramic mug while my iced milo was served in a disposable cup. We can’t help noticing that the other patrons had theirs served in glass mugs. What are we so special, we wonder? New patrons arrived and their drinks were also served in glass mugs.
The only exception were two Chinese ladies whose drinks were served in disposable cups. The only obvious difference is that the four of us were not Muslims.
I truly hope that it is an extra ordinary coincidence otherwise it is really sad to think that there such a thing as halal cups and non halal cups.
