Kampua Mee Poster
On the green poster : If there is change kampua is no longer kampua....Smaller prints ask HL : Are you letting the proverbial wolf to come to Sarawak? Pakatan is a combination of several parties.....
Here's my Kampua and coffee shop talk ... 8 ( for prosperity) points
Our 50 year old One Malaysia society should NOT at this moment still have
1......... people ordering kampua without meat because they have no money in their pockets-
2....... beggars collecting the left over kampua mee from the table -
3........ the poor natives eating cold and squashed kampua from plastic bags in the bus terminals for example
4........poor boarding Iban and Penan school students eating soggy biscuits with a small basin of half cooked Daddy's Mee floating on half boiled water for dinner.....
5......poor working girls eating only one meal of Kampua mee per day...and nothing else..(Carbos are the cheapest food in Asia) Big bosses please pay good and equal wages.
6.....people eating kampua mee as a treat while others order sharks' fin every day (and say that the restaurant is not good enough)
7.......differential treatment in coffee shops : friends get better and larger plate of kampua and ulu people get smaller portions and fewer slices of pork.....
8.......more frequent customers get fresh kampua mee and strangers from other races get yesterday's (from the fridge) kampua mee...If you are ONE Malaysia person bring three Non Chinese to a coffee shop and see what happens....(you get the goods for the value of the price you pay according to the slogan...but there is differential treatment if you have the wrong face in many incidents).
TWO good points:
1. My heartfelt thanks to the coffee shop owners who are ethical and honest - add an extra portion of kampua to the poor native family who look so scared to be in the coffee shop (two boys sharing a chair) ..... they have to order 5 plates of kampua to be shared by 8 of them.
2. My hearrfelt thanks to the hospitable kampua mee stall owner who spoke in Iban to the three Iban ladies who came to eat in the shop..."Anang malu...makai ..makai...bisi kampua..(mi kering) .. diatu..nyamai...nadai salah...kitai orang sendiri....One Malaysia..." He gave a good sincere smile.....
