The Cendol with the Money-back Guarantee

I discovered this cendol place on Friday! 

[Note: For non-Malaysians, cendol is an iced sweet dessert that contains green rice flour jelly noodles, coconut milk and palm sugar syrup and typically made on a base of shaved ice]. 

And this Nyonya Cendol place dares to make claims: that the cendol is made daily, they use fresh santan, no preservatives and no colouring. In fact, it has a 100% satisfaction or your money-back guarantee policy!

Indeed, I believe its claim – that it’s the best homemade cendol in town! 

Even better, you can add durian, nangka or cempedak, besides the usual pulut, jagung or ice cream. 

I had the cendol with cempedak and it cost me RM7.60 (RM4.80 + RM2.80) and yes, it was worth it!

M for Malaysia, a documentary feature film about the election that brought hope to the nation, is set to screen at two international film festivals – CAAMFest37 and DocEdge New Zealand. 

M for Malaysia made its world premiere at the Centre for Asian American Media Festival 2019 in San Francisco, USA on May 15, the largest showcase for new Asian American and Asian films. 

Following that, M for Malaysia is slated for a series of screening at DocEdge New Zealand: May 30 and June 02 in Auckland, and June 14 and 16 in Wellington. DocEdge New Zealand is an Academy Award-qualifying festival for feature and short documentaries – and it celebrates the best in domestic and international documentary films. 

M for Malaysia follows the then 92-year-old Mahathir Mohamad on the campaign trail for 16 days leading up to Malaysia’s 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 – and he steered Pakatan Harapan to victory and became the oldest Prime Minister in the world. Malaysians had voted out a government that had ruled them for 60 years and voted in a new one headed by the octogenarian. 

The story of this triumph is one of unlikely coalitions, impossible odds and almost impassable barriers. But it is also the story of the tenacity and resilience of a people who rallied around Pakatan Harapan in order to effect change in the most democratic way: through the ballot box. 

Check out another M for Malaysia trailer:

Definitely, a must-watch!

The documentary is currently securing a release date for screening in Malaysian cinemas.
