Little did I know I would get so much response about my new stripped-down-to-almost-nothing mobile phone, and the best one would definitely be the text I got from Jasonmumbles as shown in the following picture.
Gee thanks Jason. I take that as a compliment.
One of the things I have regrettably taken for granted while I was in Perth for the past couple of years would be Subway. I know there could probably be nothing that noteworthy about the nothing but overpriced rojak styled sandwich with an international brand, but I guess it was the joy of pointing your fingers at whatever and however you wish to customize your sandwich that bought me over. Naturally I hated pickles, tomatoes, and several other yucky sandwich ingredients, which I can happily remove whenever I order a Subway sandwich.
Feeling nostalgic, and the creeping loneliness over the CNY holidays, I decided to pay my first visit to the Subway branch which was newly opened in Times Square. To my surprise, the interior layout and decors did resemble the typical designs I have seen all over Perth and this led me to the conclusion that most probably the Subways from other parts of the world would adopt similar styles too. Even the seats, the walls, and ceilings, the theme was really familiar. I felt right at home !!
Six inch? Hah that's for pussies. I had a footlong, which was just right to fill my tummy. Unfortunately the selection of menu in Malaysia was rather limited. The options for customization was quite restricted too, for example, you do not have alternatives of cheese to choose from, and the array of meat and vegetables were somehow lacking the variety I have witnessed back in Perth that made my mind indecisive most of the time. At least the ingredients were really fresh and nicely prepared. I ordered the special of the day, Italian BMT that includes salami and pepperoni.
Owh the sandwich tasted like heaven after not having one for so long.
I noticed that they were very careful not to name one of the sandwich stuffings as.... bacon. They cruelly replaced it with the name "breakfast strips". Well, at least they did not use bacon since it was obviously not bacon (bacon is pork, for those bacon-deprived people) and the name would definitely implicate confusion and misunderstandings. Nonetheless... breakfast strips???? The name does not suit it any better either.
So anyone have tried Subway in KL before? It is not a huge thing here, but the chains are slowly growing. It is undoubtedly a healthier food in comparison to KFC or McD.
