Awesome Toast

Just had a tea that could save souls. Withered, broken, shell-of-human-being atheist souls of people who don't even believe in the afterlife. Tea so good, they must've ground one whole bush's worth of caffeine into a small paper cup, and slathered it in evap. Tea as it was made when I was young, and possibly still made as such in serendipitious places.

And then there was the traditional kaya toast, crisp and golden on the outside, and slathered in margerine and eggy, coconutty, sugary goodness down the middle. If I wasn't suffering from the dull, glorious ache of what happens when I have really good Teh C -- caffeine-induced migraine + SUGAR, I might actually go back and get more before I am forced to sit in a plane again for 15 hours.

Changi Airport rocks.

Also, it seems that, "Syok!", is a primarily Malaysian expression. Used it on the coffee maker when I tasted my tea, and it had to be explained. I learn new things.

I suspect the etymology of this word derives it from, "Shock!", which implies that something is so good, it gives you shivers?
