Hipsters want to be known as Bangsa Bangsar
BSC2: As the nation contemplates unity as a core concept of Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin’s TN50, some Malaysians have expressed a deep connection with some popular Telawi Street hangouts.
“I’ve been coming here a long time,” explained one-time Bangsar party girl Emily Yap, “here I am brunching with my children only metres from an alley where years ago I threw up a spanking board worth of flavoured vodka from Telawi Steet Bistro!”
“I was dancing to the Pussycat Dolls in Flams the night I met my husband. He took me to Finnigans, then the White Room before we shared a 3AM chicken tandoori supper at Devi’s Corner. Years later we’re still surprised to find ourselves on these same streets!”
“This isn’t about race or ethnicity. It’s about paying RM12 for a single-origin Guatemala roast Melbourne-style latte and wishing somehow you could afford to live nearby. Now that is Bangsa Bangsar!”
