DAP's Promo Videos

It's 2012 and the Malaysia General Election is getting near. The social media war never stop after 308, using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Blogs. Both sides are trying hard fighting on new media channels, using creativity to attract the attention of rakyat and convince the rakyat to choose them. They have specific theme for their marketing campaign. When it was 2008, the mandarin theme used by BN was "Zai Zhuan Bian", means Change Again. However, it was like a fail theme.
Recently, I found an interesting and creative election promo video made by DAP. The theme is Bersihkan Malaysia. Through this video, I think we can foresee the 13th GE DAP's campaign theme now.

Title: Ubah Sekarang, Bershikan Malaysia!

The video was used by DAP on social media during 2008. It was the time I started to watch M'sia politic movement. They were using "Just Change" as theme for their marketing campaign, especially on new media's channels.

Here is another short promo video about Malaysia election made by Youth4Change Malaysia.

Bukit Mertajam's Haji Mohd Tokun Mee Goreng

Haji Mohd Tokun Mee Goreng in Bukit Mertajam is my favorite Mee Goreng. The Mee Goreng is fried with their own recipe. It is even delicious when added with sweet & spicy octopus on the top. You may also order coconut drink to complement with the Mee Goreng and enjoying the meal under the tree.

The business was started near to Cherok Tokun Relics, a recreation park for local community. Hence, the Tokun Mee Goreng was named after the place. I tried the food at there when I was very young. After few years, they have moved to the current location.

Besides Mee Goreng, they also serve Mee Kuah Ketam and Pasembur. The Mee Kuah Ketam tastes good too. From my observation, majority customers order either Mee Goreng or Mee Kuah Ketam there, then complement with coconut drink. The price of Mee Goreng has been increased to RM3.50 now, same goes to Mee Kuah Ketam and Pasembur. It used to cost only RM2.50. And, the coconut drink is RM1.40.

Business Hours & Location
They operate from 10.00am to 6.00pm. Their business is good, so you better visit before 5.00pm as the Mee Goreng always finish earlier.The stall can be found easily, it is located at Jalan Kulim, near to St. Anne Church. There is a Caltex petrol station near to the stall. You may refer to the map below to get to the Mee Goreng stall.
