Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Borak borak -

One of my favourite restau­rants has a very chatty owner. She means well, but how do I tell her to buzz off? Ravi, Bukit Raja

A cou­ple of ques­tions: is she hot? Sec­ond, does she give you ex­tra bread rolls with your or­ders? If you an­swered ‘yes’ to one of these ques­tions, then a bout of con­ver­sa­tion isn’t so bad, right? But if you want to be left alone, tell her and then ca­su­ally wave good­bye to the pref­er­en­tial treat­ment. Bon ap­pétit, Scrooge!

Should I risk a dinner date by cook­ing at home or take her out to a clichéd fancy restau­rant? Fir­daus, Mont Kiara

If your culi­nary reper­toire is in­stant noo­dles with po­ten­tial di­ar­rhoea, then opt to pay some­one else to do the cook­ing for you. I’d go for cliché any­time over hav­ing my stom­ach pumped.
