Personality Test at Kar Heong, Subang

Partaking in a simple meal can make radical changes to perception, offering invaluable insights to a new character beyond the possibilities of Myers-Briggs.

He ordered Siu Yoke (Roast Pork). And ate every last sliver of porcine fat on the plate. with relish. Yes this could be LOVE.

He asked for the hor fun with prawn wantan to be replaced with blah yellow noodles. But horfun rules in this joint! What would compel a person to go with insipid yellow noodles over the silky smooth hor fun? I raised a mental eyebrow but refrained from being too judgemental. This is as much a personality outing for me as it is for him.

I stuck to hor fun and I was smugly pleased. Rice noodles coated with lardy love, chives and spring onion. He remained unimpressed. Hmmm...Stubborn, much? Score to Kar Heong, none to him.

The dumplings spoke to me in volumes. I needed a slam dunk and this was it! Check out the size of the prawns involved.

And when it comes down to it, aren't the concealed fillings all that matter?

A meal at Kar Heong isn't going to deliver all the answers about a person but it does bring you one slice of fatty siu yoke closer to the truth.

So, the moral of the story is that if you want the lovely MC to fall in love with you, you have to order siew yoke and eat it with gusto? :)

so the way to understand a man's mind is to find out what entices his stomach? perhaps there's a lucrative book idea here: go on a hundred dinner dates with different guys over the course of 2010 and write about what their eating preferences tell you about them! :D

J, hell, no! They have to order siew yoke, order ANOTHER plate for me, THEN eat with gusto! :-P

Sean, I do think there's a whole lot of exploration to be done in the correlation between an individual's r'ship with food and their personality. I LOVE that idea! So many meals to be had!!

Bangsar Babe, HAHAHA! That's hilarious! He did share siu yoke with me, but ate most of it! In retrospect, that's like a zillion demerit points right?!

LFB, the ultimate Love Calculator! Determined by the ounces of pork fat involved! :-)

TNG, you think so too!? It's quite a massive undertaking for 1 person! Wanna join me? :-P

oh man, if u don't know his food, pls dump him straight away. No need to prolong the pain. Imagine when he tries to wine and dine u at a horrible place.

Bangsar-bAbE said...

Yes...a gazillion demerit points!!! I'd have dumped that bugger at the stall! No need to bother finishing the meal. You're much too nice.

I'll tapau a large serve of siu yoke and eat it ALL by myself. Muahahahaa...

I do like it if the companies replaced Myers-Briggs with some sessions of siew yoke and char siew - call it the SYCS test.

iamthewitch said...

He ate all the siew yoke? Well, positive point, at least he took in all the fat, and kept you away from it! :P
