And the macho says he was born in 1952 which makes him older than Malaysia, in a small pekan ( town ) in Perak called Ayer Tawar ( plain water) . Which is just as well for now this plain town is no longer so plain . Many people think he's Indian since he's got an Indian sounding name & his staff are mostly Malays & Indians. And it seems the only Chinese fella is the van driver aka the Logistics Director (like somewhere stuck in the last picture below)
Isn't this sweetish green brownish iced-cold dessert with the eye-popping red beans associated with Indian Cuisine ? ...and isn't it always sold in the backStreets in an ancient pushcart with the century-old hand operated screwable ice shaving-grinding machine... behind some weird buildings... always with a surprisingly long but patiently waiting Q under the Xtra hot sun ?
we are talking about this seemingly irresistible dessert from the Mr for RM 1.70 for small, ( why so high ? ...becoz he's been around for 56 years oldy authentic already lah !)
...but of course we have tasted much badder ones
the nasi Indon ( looks like nasi lemak ...tastes unlike it ) RM2.50 biasa ( but for the generous no of crispy look-alike fat headless ikan bilis makes it fairly priced )
mee rebus biasa ( "boiled noodles" in little bit spicy orange kind-of tomato sauce gravy + some fried tofu cuttings & a few pieces of boiled potato pieces ) at a colorful RM 2.50 a plate
...and probably the most stunning boring noodles we have ever tried
rojak ( pasembor some call it ), RM 3.80 a plate of fresh turnip/beansprout/tofu ( again ! omg) salad ( doused in a similarly sweety soury spicy brownish sauce like for the mee rebus ).
The price...tho...is over crunchy by quite a few beansprouts . Next time we should go for his one more thing rojak mee instead !
While softly cooing to Lionel Richie's 1980 something Hit "stuck on you"
Last we heard 2 more Mr Cendul ( now already securely got 4 outlets in Manjung )
will be coming soon to Sg Siput and Taiping (Perak)
Hey, budding young entrepreneurs , maybe you should consider to
plagiarise his Mr style ( legally ) for the 2,000,000 KL market !
