If you see it on TV, WATCH IT!
3 February 2013 | by synicalrulesSee all my reviews

It's been off the air so long, I only have fond memories of it. It's one of those quality local English sitcoms I used to watch as a kid. Also love the theme song, Empty Decorations, by Indecisive (which you can find online).

I'm not sure how well the regional humor translates outside Malaysia/Singapore, but it was funny - there was some shipping (long before the term came to play now) going on between two of the characters, effeminate hairstylist Steven and the snotty lawyer from Singapore, Susan. .. Other characters include mama's boy Joe, and long-time customers of said kopitiam, Uncle Chan and Uncle Kong.

Long story short, if you ever come across reruns of this, WATCH IT!
