  1. The char koay teow is being running business for many years. Is quite bad if just close down like that. Good news to hear it is now re-open.

  2. Does the ckt contain pork or lard in it?
    I don’t mind if it’s not halal certified as long as there’s no pork or lard used..
    I’m dying for a good original (non flooded Malay version) halal ckt…
