20 Sep – A replica of Warong Pak Jabit, the popular food stall synonymous with Mamat Khalid's "Kampong Pisang" universe has recently been built as part of Perak Tourism.
The stall, which is situated in the vicinity of the late filmmakers' cafe, Sarang Art Hub in Tanjung Malim, was launched recently by the Tourism Perak CEO, Normalis Musa, and witnessed by Mamat's fourth child and director, Mohd Khalid Amen.
"Although it is not built fully like in the movie or drama, I'm sure it will bring nostalgia to those who come," said Amen.
Amen added that the establishment of Sarang Art Hub itself by his late father has to be continued so that all of Mamat's sacrifices will not be in vain.
Guests who attended the launch were also served with "curry noodle with laksa gravy", the hilarious menu that is part of "Kampong Pisang Bersiri-siri".
Aside from the stall, another addition to the Sarang Art Hub area is the Bangsal Lang Buana, which will be a training ground for silat students under the guidance of Jentayu.
