Where to Find Halal Chang in Malaysia

We’re days away from the annual Dragon Boat Festival! For some of you, you may know the festival as Duanwu Festival (端午節).

Like most Chinese festivals, they usually have a particular food that’s often associated with the festival and in this case, that special food is the zongzi (粽子) or sticky rice dumpling in English.

Over here in Malaysia though, the zongzi is also known as joong in Cantonese, chang in Hokkien, and kuih chang in Malay.

So last year, we did several posts on halal chang in Malaysia. For this year, we figured it’d be good to highlight those posts again and combine the posts into a single post for easy reference.

On top of that, we’ll also be featuring other places where you can get halal chang in Malaysia, making this post our ultimate list for halal chang in Malaysia!

Review: Many years ago we tried sister Jasmeen’s food at her Ampang Jaya outlet. We tried her dim sum as well as loh mai kai. Back then, there weren’t many places selling halal Chinese Muslim food and that visit to her outlet was an unexpected, yet very much welcomed treat from a friend of ours. We never go there again mainly because we were always on a rush whenever we were in KL. By the time we’d completed all our matters, it was time to head back to JB. If you’re around the area, do give her food a try. She also does catering and delivery.

Guide: How To Protect Yourself From Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

The Chinese New Year weekend started with news about the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Immediately, our attention went to K’s family in China, hoping that everyone would be safe and sound. Alhamdulillah, so far everyone is doing well.

At the time of writing, there was only 1 confirmed case at K’s hometown. Since then, we’ve been hoping and praying there won’t be more to come. This is a major concern to us because although we don’t celebrate Chinese New Year, it’s still the time for most of us to do some travelling and visiting families and friends.

Whether you’re in China, Malaysia, or some other country, please take all the necessary measures to safeguard yourself from contracting this illness.

Key points about the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) taken from the World Health Organization:

  • Originated in Wuhan, China
  • Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
  • In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
  • Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
