Old Town White Coffee Halal Certification And YB Ngeh Koo Ham
Old Town White Coffee which does not have the JAKIM’s halal certification was said by some people as partly owned by a DAP leader.
Ardmand Azha PJU tweeted to YB Ngeh Koo Ham asking him, “why ur white coffee without halal certification”.
Ardmand Azha PJ was referring to the restaurants or kopitiams named Old Town White Coffee.
YB Ngeh replied in Bahasa Malaysia which in English means,“First time I have heard that drinking coffee must have the halal label. Human should not add burdening (troubling) requirements. God gives freedom.”
Next he went on to say that, “God does not say that”, when Ardmand Azha PJ explained that for the Muslims, the Halal certification is a must especially because the Old Town White Coffee restaurants also serve all kinds of food.
What YB Ngeh tweeted is wrong and he should not interfere with other people’s religion.
Muslims must only eat and drink food that is not only halal but ‘toyibbah’ or clean and does not contained anything that is bad for our health like germs or dangerous chemicals.

Agree with you Ahmad. Muslims should avoid eating and drinking at places that do not have Halal Logo JAKIM.
In Malaysia, we are lucky to have JAKIM to take care of the halal food for the Muslims. Some people tried to paint a bad picture of JAKIM for example the Cadbury case; but my family and I trust JAKIM.
You may be the youngest blogger. But that doesn’t necessarily make the smartest. Nevertheless, keep on doing what you are now. You’ll get there eventually. By the way, I’m no fan of Old Town WC.
Dear Abang Hisham,
Thank you for writing. I might have been one of the youngest blogger when I started blogging, and I call myself a blogger because I wrote my own posts ever since I was 5 when I started my blog. But I never say that I’m the smartest blogger. It’s cool to be smart but it is also important to be responsible and honest and patriotic to our country when we write.
By the way, I’m glad that I’ve never been to any of the Old Town White Coffee restaurants. Ngeh’s comments about halal are bad and it shows that he does not respect Islam. I’m glad that you are not an Old Town WC’s fan and I really hope that you are not Ngeh’s fan 🙂
