Like many people I know, I have fallen prey to Lao Ban's beancurd. Yes I have heard of the looong waiting time but never experienced it myself. I went on a weekday afternoon once and the queue was not too bad. You see A is over-indulging. Whenever I crave for Lao Ban he will get Uncle M to buy. Uncle M will go all the way to Old Airport Road, queue, buy 6 tubs of beancurd and send that precious beancurd to A's office. All I do is wait for my beancurd to arrive and eat them over two days. The process then repeat itself. Simple and painless for me.

Just this morning, my Lao Ban craving hit and we decided to go down ourselves. 5 mins before Lao Ban opened, all was peaceful and quiet. So we lunched.

And hey! An insidious queue formed during our lunch! It seemed deceivingly ok till we realised that people were buying in bulk. Like 30 to 50 tubs at a go! The hawker center got increasingly hot, stuffy and crowded while Lao Ban's fridge got emptier and emptier!

By the time it reached our turn, the fridge on the right got completely wiped out! Why are people buying so many!!?? Finally got my beancurd after braving the heat, fumes from curry puff stall and porky smell drifting out from the famous Blanco court kway chap stall. I even drafted this post while we waited!
I only hope my addiction will ceased soon. Otherwise it will be poor Uncle M braving the heat and crowd again :P
