The kindness of strangers

food container

The F&B places all started to jettison their food stock straight after the F1 final race in Sepang with β€œBuy 1 free 1” promos and 50% discounts. I wouldn’t pay RM 20 for a soggy sandwich but I was feeling particularly hungry and at RM 10, it didn’t sound so bad. It started to sound like airport food prices to me. πŸ˜‰

Thus, I parked my ass at the nearest place and started to eat.

I got an egg sandwich, managed to two bites and started to poke at the radioactive looking mess that’s supposed to be coleslaw when I accidentally upended the entire disposable container and got the gooey stuff all over my jeans. The splatter was everywhere – on the floor, on my clothes and it nearly even hit the person beside me.


Anyway, I was wiping futilely at my jeans with the tiny piece of serviette they gave me, just moving around the mess instead of doing anything productive to it, when the girl sitting next to me (see photo below) rummaged in her bag and held out a packet of wet wipes.

I thought that was really nice of her. Most people would have ignored the scene and looked the other way but she was kind enough to notice and offer some wet wipes to me. It really made my day, even though I still had to go to the washroom to clean up most of the mess. Heh! Thanks anonymous girl! I’m sorry I didn’t get your name. 😑


I stuck to a safer-to-eat muffin after that. It was at bargain basement prices – a Coffee Bean bottled drink with 4 individually packaged muffins for just RM 5. πŸ˜€

    • I know! It’s really cheap right!

      I’m not sure if it’s Coffee Bean, pretty sure it is coz the paper bags are CB. The stalls are not allowed to advertise or put logos in the F1 SIC – it’s only generic signboards with the food items they sell.

      It’s those Coffee Bean bottled coffees – mine was a low fat latte, plus 4 chocolate muffins from CB for just RM 5. I should have gotten that first instead.

      It’s cheap coz they’re selling it off at the end of the F1 race – it was the last day and they can’t bring it back to resell anyway, so they’re letting it go at a very low price. Can bargain somemore, saw a guy getting the same sandwich for RM 8. Haha!

  1. I did the same thing a few days ago!Was on my way to collect my car when I saw this old couple standing by a puddle of muddy water and trying to wipe off the mud on the shoes with tissue.Got back to my car and took the packet of wet tissue I put in my car and passed it to them on the way out exiting the car park.

    • Hey that’s really nice! πŸ˜€

      Good on you! I’m sure they really appreciated it.

      Wet tissues is the best invention since…er, tissues. Heh! Seriously, I wasn’t a huge fan but wet tissues do better than paper ones in wiping off stuff – oily fingers etc. It works wonders. πŸ™‚

    • Well, not all of the muffins are like that. I would love to eat a buttery fat filled one though. Heh! πŸ™‚

      The most delicious foods are often the most unhealthy ones.

      There’s a lot of fat, sodium and cholestrol in my diet but I don’t mind. It’s the Malaysian way – our national dish is nasi lemak, which is packed with fat. πŸ˜€
