Kway Teow Jambul Murad

Taken from Borneo Bulletin dated 22nd October 2009. This particular article really touched me.

De Rimba renames dish in memory of loyal customer - by Achong Tanjong

"De Rimba Restaurant has renamed one of its dishes in memory of a loyal client who passed away at the end of Ramadhan.
The Kuey Tiaw menu is now known as Kuey Tiaw Jambul Murad, after the late Jambul bin Haji Murad.
"Over the last six years, Jambul was a loyal customer who visited our restaurant twice or three times a day, whenever he was in the country. Everyone of us here misses him. He was a nice patron," said restaurant manager Mohammad.
"Meanwhile, Pehin Khatib Hj Mustapha and Haji Ishak, the brother of late Jambul, said, "Whenever we had a family function at my parents or siblings home, we had to order separately from De Rimba Restaurant because my brother refused to eat anything else.

Awang Jambul bin Haji Murad was my Grandfather's first cousin. I personally miss him dearly too. He always had a sweet smile whenever we bumped into each other.

Semoga rohnya di cucuri rahmat. Amin al-Fatihah...
