In KL, shop like this is almost obsolete. In fact, we can get many useful stuff from here. Things like the Japanese charcoal stove - red clay stove with a small sliding "door" in front (left of this pic.). When we were staying in Ipoh, we used Japanese stove to boil soup which needs hours to boil. Charcoals are used because it's more economical and the soup tastes better.


Another hard to get item is the batu tumbuk. Batu tumbuk consists of the "mangkuk" and "alu". The "alu" of the batu tumbuk we have at home is about 4 inches now - from the original length of about 6 inches. It shows how old the batu tumbuk is and how often we use it. Smile

Hi Jim,


Stone Slab and Stone Rolling Pin you are referring to is Batu Giling. Jim sangat fasih dalam Bahasa Melayu. Syabas Jim! Thumbs Up!

Some people believe if we put water into the "mangkuk" of Batu Tumbuk (exactly half of the "mangkuk"), no "pencuri" will enter the house. Not sure about the "pencuri", but "nyamuk" will definitely come!

Even if the Batu Tumbuk is half-filled with water, we have to constantly refill it because Batu Tumbuk is porous. Water can drained off gradually from the "Mangkuk".


Pernah cuba lah tu! Smile Dah kena Kantoi!!

Hi Jim,


Bila pencuri itu jerit di gigit nyamuk, kita baling Batu Tumbuk ke Pencuri itu. Ka ka ka .....
