We (the girls) also used to sneak out to Deejays on Sunday afternoons, via the kitchen at the back, we were not supposed to eat at Deejays. But every Sunday, we would go for 'a walk' armed with 50 cents from Chacha, straight to Dejays!. When we got home Malek and Chachi used to wonder why we were not as hungary as we normally were! Ahhhhhhh those were the days.
