Early Morning Madness

So,I was on the phone with Fabe this morning when we decided, at 4am, that we were hungry. The logical solution (naturally) was that we should go in search of food.

After some debate over what would still be open at four in the morning that wouldn't cost an arm, we decided to head down to Geylang Lorong 9. (For the friends not from the sunny island, Geylang is the local red light district, which naturally also means it has cheap food till late.)

The irony of it is that he supposedly stays in Serangoon (Central to North), while I supposedly stay in Upper East Coast (East, duh), and Geylang is in the East, but my cab fare cost $10 while his only cost him $6. How unfair is that?! I thinkwe should seriously review what we consider North and East and whatever. ;)

So anyway, we had a pretty good supper/breakfast of noodles and dumplings, and sat around chatting till about seven before we left. Something we noticed was that there were still girls out and about trying to do business. Are there really guys who come down to "buy" at seven in the morning? We figured it might be the night shift workers who do, but the only guys we saw walking around were obviously pimps.

On a side note, this episode makes me sorely miss the odd hour suppers we used to have in Melbourne. I wanna be back in uni again! =\
