Satay night with James and Cecilia 与詹斯民和黄芝婷沙爹之夜

James and Cecilia Chiam came to Malaysia from USA for a holiday. They asked me to bring them to Kajang for satay earlier on in the email. I told them that we needed not to travel all the way to Kajang as there are good satays around town.

My family and I felt honored as they looked up on us. They are good Christians who are fervent for the Lord. Cecilia is a renowned writer among the Chinese-speaking folks worldwide. She is a well-sought-after writer by newspaper columns.

On Aug 13 evening, I brought them to Sate Kajang Hj Samuri at 79, Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama Uptown. We had a good fellowship though the foods were not really that good.

When satays were prepared in mass production, usually they were done hastily. The better the business, the worse the presentation, e.g. the foods are served cool, sometimes uncooked, as well as juice lost.

I usually enjoyed road-side-satays, though usually I have to wait a bit longer, as the food would be slowly fanned and flipped, and finally served hot from the charcoal stove.

Well, it is true that the best satays are still found in Kajang. It is best simply for the same reason that they are served hot. Next time you see the shops having a big crowd and the workers are doing mass production, please shun the shop.



8月13日傍晚我们带他们到百沙罗乌打玛 Sate Kajang Hj Samuri 门牌79号享用沙爹。虽然食物并不是那么好,我们有美好的沟通。
