Late into the evening my friend Mark (the blonde one), and two of the local Tamil beauties Amdha and Farah share an 'ais kacang'(ice kachang) at a roadside cafe. 'Ais kacang' is a popular dessert, something of a 'poor man's icecream' made of shaved ice and an array of add-ins and flavourings. It's very refreshing on a hot night. 'Ais' is Bahasa for 'ice', 'kacang' is Bahasa for 'kacang'.

Mr Pumpy got so hot he had two.
