A place where Malays and Chinese eat together

Someone bought me lunch at Hua Mui Restaurant today.

It's at Jalan Trus in downtown JB.

The place is pork-free and quite famous.

Quite a number of Malays were eating there.

The guy who bought me the lunch is also a Malay.

So, I guess the Malays in JB are still okay with the Chinese as quite a number of them seem to have no problem eating at such a Chinese restaurant.

As far as I know, there are many Malay makan places in JB where Chinese like to go for meals too.

Well, I believe race relations are not so bad if things are like that.

I ordered a plate of "Mee Hoon Singapore".


Quite nice.

Actually the most popular dish at the restaurant is Chicken Chop Hailam.

But today I don't feel like eating that.

Just had a chicken meal for dinner last night.

By the way, the weather here is quite hot in the afternoon of late.

The sky looked nice though earlier in the day.


I like the clouds like that.

  1. "Pork Free" tidak semestinya halal, sudah tentu jauh sekali dari toiyiban.
    Anyway, kalau lapar sangat, darurat...makan je lah.

      Jawapan yang paling tongong. Kalau akak yang jual nasi lemak tu orang Melayu dan Islam, memang dah sah lah halal. Apa perlu sijil dari Jakim? Awak ni Melayu ke apek?

  2. Getting hungry looking at that picture! I was so lucky that I grew up in JB. The food was so great,and cheap too. Even over the causeway. There was a place near Woodlands where you could order giant-size thosai with one fold....it would stick out of both sides of the plate, like a huge flyover. We used to order it by saying "boss, roti highway satu". I'm sure it's long gone, but yes there was every race in there. Maybe mamak stalls are really where we are of the same opinion, no matter what race.....

  5. Annie, you should ask your friend to bring you to a Malay Restaurant called Azinur in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah in Skudai. Everyday 12pm the queue is very long and 90% of the customers are Chinese. You should go and see.

  6. Asam Pedas Botak at stulang is another place.. I love having breakfast there. The mee hoon goreng ikan is the best dish!
    Even the sultan eats there once a while.

  7. Mencari yang halal dan toyyiban itu adalah wajib bagi umat islam. Pork-free tidak menjamin sumber daging (ayam atau lembu)yang diguna dalam masakan adalah halal dan telah disembelih ikut hokum islam.

  10. Saya kalau bab makan ini cerewet siki. Saya lebih mementingkan khasiat dari sedap. Khasiat itu universal. Seluruh dunia sama, manakala 'sedap' bergantung kepada cita-rasa sesaorang.

    Contohnya; seorang yang diajar bahawa babi adalah 'jijik', sudah tentu akan 'kebulur' di Jepun, tanpa bawa maggi banyak.
    Durian juga jijik pada orang lain.

    Oleh itu cita-rasa mulut banyak dipengaruhi persepsi. Kalau tak percaya, sila tanya Mat Sabu atau Peliwat, megapa mereka sanggup 'menjilat' dan membiar dirinya dikulum oleh China-doll.

      Are you too?

    2. "Uneducated" is also subjective. It depends what you're learning, who taught you and your upbringing. If you're 'kurang-ajar' that means your parents have fail to inculcate you with a respect for other peoples culture.

      Therefore having respect for other people's culture are good ethical values, especially in a diverse society like Malaysia.

      Of-course if you're a racist, then support a racist Political Party like DAP, then it's not your parent's fault. It's highly likely due to the 'new' faith, adopted from the west and inseminated into your head by your revered politicians.

      Even Mainland China are weary of these Evangelistic mischief. Everywhere they went, violence and misery ensued.

    3. rd u just talk rots. new faith adopted from west and mainland chinese are weary. dap is chinaman party snd umno can only talk about ketuanan. mainland china is weary about extremist middle east religion like what happen in jakarta. even polisi has to act safe with condoms to issue warnings

  12. Dear Annie,

    The situation you describe has been long practised here in Labuan or Borneo part of Malaysia. You should come to Labuan one fine day and you will observe that the spirit of "1Malaysia" or whatever you want to call it has long been practised here. I don't have to tell you about mixed marriage. It is not something like a "taboo" over here. So, feel free to come to Labuan.....


    regards,

    1. The trick is to not let our political allegiances effect our perception of each others race. We should ultimately judge everyone as individuals. I will admit that I fell into the trap of being annoyed with many UMNO commentators after the last elections and I became somewhat annoyed with the Malay people because of that. It was actually a sad reflection on me more than anything else.

      I remember getting into a taxi with a Malay driver soon after and having a great conversation with him about life and other issues, and getting out of the taxi thinking to myself, don't be stupid and stop stereotyping. It was a real wake up call for me. I now try to take that approach every day and often you get what you put in. The nicer you are to someone, that person will more than likely reciprocate, regardless of race or religion.

  13. Dear Annie,

    I enjoy reading your blog and I have been following you for quite some time now.

    One of the reasons is, to me at least, I appreciate your polite, decent and moderate language use. No swearing, no cursing, no f-Word, no vulgarities. This clearly shows your upbringing.

    Unfortunately, you have readers like Anon 10.59, 11.01 and 11.02, who is one and the same person, who thinks nothing of desecrating and smearing your blog with profanities, obscenities and expletives.

    Please spare your other decent and respectable readers from the likes of him. Please bar his comments and block him from your blog.

    Freedom of speech and expression have their limits. Once you insult other people with your crudity, then be prepared to face the consequences.

    I hope you will maintain the respectability of this blog.

    SG

  14. Many Malay restaurants, yes it's naturally halal. But look inside cats crawling all over the place, cats fur and the food not always fresh. So, tak ada guna halal tapi tidak bersih.

  16. Do visit kota baru if you want to see the hypocrisy. Orang isle..kedai makan tersangat kotor,dapur masak berkulat dan menjijikan, mop lantai pakai air dengan penyapu (bukan mop) yg hitam, sinki basuh tangan berkulat dan busuk. Tempat buang sampah berlonggok busuk berlalat sebelah je dapur masak. Hisap rokok buang atas lantai dan setiap longkang is your tong sampah.
    Bab ni tak komplen pulak pasal kotor. Tokse nok royak pasa isle..jijik blako..cumo hok tuey keda tuh oghe melayu..bereh deh! Halalan toyiba bro!

  17. Tadi saya dengar Buletin TV3, NSK nak sediakan trolley 'halal' pulak. NSK dimiliki Tawkei Cina? Saya tak tahu, tapi TV3 menengahkan seorang Melayu sebagai jurucakap NSK. Siap minta pendapat Ustaz melalui talipon mengenai kebaikan tindakan tersebut. Kaunter pembayaran pun mahu diasing, antara pelanggan yang beli product halal dan tidak halal.
    Ini saya kira, dah tahap merapu dah. Adakah ini bermakna, NSK boleh menjual daging babi atau pelanggan boleh bawa binatang peliharaan guna trolley tidak-halal? Kalau pelanggan 'terlupa' atau enggan patuh penggunaannya, bagaimana?

    Kalau sudah merapu sebegini, apa pula agaknya mengenai:-
    -Tong Gas. Siapa pernah beli tong-gas masak yang berdaki, lekit berminyak dan ada yang berbau busuk? Jika pengguna tong-gas sebelum itu, letakkannya dekat dapor untuk goreng babi, atau anjing, bagimana? Mahu tandakan halal & tidak-halal juga?
    - Duit kertas atau syiling. Saya pernah terima duit yang ada kesan darah, kesan kotoran makanan dan kesan minyak-hitam, mungkin kesan tangan mechanic kereta/motor. Duit itu mungkin juga pernah diguna dalam urusan jual-beli daging babi di pasar. Pemotong daging pulangkan baki, selepas menyiang daging ikut timbangan. Duit juga mahu di cop halal & tidak-halal?

    Oleh kerana duit banyak bertukar tangan dan mungkin pernah jatuh longkang, saya terus sepak muka jika lihat anak-anak mengepit duit dengan bibir mulut. Berhentilah dari mencium duit.

    2. Fasal duit, memang susah nak elakkan. Tapi, amalan saya saya pisahkan duit dalam bekas yg berasingan dari barang peribadi, spt yg berkaitan dgn sembahyang.
      Ada dompet utk duit shj dan diasingkan dari handbag. Atau letakkan duit dlm plastic atau kertas, pegang dgn tisu, etc. Itu yg saya buat.
      Blh juga guna glove muslimah kalo tak nak pegang apa2 yg syak, sama spt tk bersentuh dgn kulit lelaki yg bkn mahram. Cashier wanita blh saja guna gloves. Lagi pon skrang bnyk penyakit berjangkit. Kalo face masks diterima pakai, blh saja guna gloves as for our protection.Jgn plk ada pihak yg memekik melolong. We have our own faith to safeguard.
      Others won't understand what we have to adhere to. Either make them understand if they are willing to listen and try to understand or just IGNORE them. What they think or say is immaterial. What Allah says, is what matters in the whole wide universe.

    4. Hairan betul ya orang melayu berlumba nak masuk syurga dengan perangai "houlier than thou" mereka. Bab2 selfish utk diri sendiri laju je nak quote halal dan haram.

      Tapi bila bab2 mengumpat, riak, sombomg,dengki mendengki, malas, pengotor, sapu harta anak yatim etc tak pulak dia nak terpekik terlolong. Bila hal2 sedekah jariah,fardu kifayah utk society sejagat liat pulak nak keluar duit and championkan.

      Quran tu is a complete book. Kalau setakat hafal and parroting the surahs itu senang. Faham isi kandungan setiap surah. Awak faham ke? If you truly do, then you will not make shallow statements like "protecting our faith" pasal isu nak pakai glove or facemask. Itu mentality melayu bukan islam. So based on your perverse logic semua org islam sebelum ni masuk neraka lah sebab tak ikut perangai awak? Sejak bila awak yang menentukannya?
      Your act of degrading fellow human beings by acting sombong and riak will only make yourself look stupid and lame at the expense of other Muslims.

      Look at the world around you and see how demented muslims have become with this kind of "holier than thou" mentality sampai boleh bom org islam sendiri dalam masjid all in the name of protecting their faith.

      Dont you dare speak like you represent other muslims because thinking muslims dont talk like you because such memtality adds zero value to the muslim world.
