Long Way Up
KL Trip #1 
5 to 7 Dec 08

I know the title sounds wrong.  That was the disturbing thought when my KL friend brought my friends and I to this famous stall selling really succulent and delicious salted chicken.


See the towers of boxes stacked from floor to ceiling?  They sell chickens by the hundreds daily.  


Here comes the disturbing side of the story.  In this little town, this famous establishment employs the advertising technique which modern city companies thrives on and exploits - the female image.  What is truly discomforting is that the life-size cut-out advertisements feature only teenage girls!  

There's another at the bottom right corner of the above picture where the cut-out advertisement is a teenage girl in school uniform seen flashing a thumbs up sign.  The 2 men just happened to be leaving the premises with their purchases.   Don't go all Freudian with me but isn't this explicit chicken sales exploiting the innocence of the young?  How about the flashy and symbolic red splashed all around the shop?

On a totally random note, the streets of this town, which I cannot recall (it's either Ipoh or Ibor), are lined with these trees trimmed to shape like rectangles.  Quite a lovely sight I must say.

Nonetheless, the salted chickens are really good.  Go try it when you are there.
