Breakfast in Kuala Kangsar

Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 09.40.03From Time for a Tiger:

Victor Crabbe slept through the bilal’s bang (inept Persian word for the faint unheeded call), would sleep till the bang bang (apt Javanese word) of the brontoid dawn brought him tea and bananas. He slept on the second floor of the old Residency, which overlooked the river.
