Its time to round up all the knifeknuts in KL again and talk nothing but knives and gear. I was surprised with the good turnout last Saturday and the appearance of two old friends - Fooman and Ah Fook.

The history of our M&Gs started way back in the early 2000, where Eric Wong, Andrew Lim and I were the pioneer batch who attended the sit-down and show and tell sessions. Actually, the meet-up was iniated by Bryan Bong, a friend of mine who has already slipped out of the scene.

I took the cue and organised more M&Gs at Chilli's in Bangsar, then moved on to TGIF section 14 where we met up regularly there for two years or more before moving on to TGIF 1 Utama. Ultimately, we ended up at Bubba Gump Shrimp and Co at the Curve.

Its a nice place, but the service sucks! I can't say much for burgers cos the place specialises in seafood especially prawns. I hate peeling off the shells and its really a hassle to clean up each time I lay my hands on those bugs.

New on the scene last weekend was Craig @ Captain Kiwi, a New Zealander who is married to a a Malaysia. Purty interesting guy! We had some intelligent conversation and Donald Cheah, Editor of Top Gear Malaysia.

I shudder each time he told me about my 'reputation' and well, turned out that he's an okay guy who has developed a taste for high-end knives.

On the whole, it was a good session. Hopefully, we can maintain the momentum of meeting up on a montly-basis...
