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!”
