Sheesha and Da Police

Did I ever tell you about the time several Singapore and Malaysian police officers were looking for me?

They went searching porta porta for me in Arab Street, a neighborhood famous for cafes, restaurants and sheesha bars.

I had waiters and customers rushing toward my face telling me several squad cars had arrived with men carrying Heckler & Koch sub machine guns, and it was an APB for a certain “Khaled Talib.”

Well, they found me – and it was a riot.

What did they want? An officer approached me and said he heard about my reputation in making good sheesha. So he wanted me to concoct a good one for the visiting Malaysian police commissioner.

I got permission from the cafe owner to serve the commissioner a specialty – apple and grape. He enjoyed himself.
