Wan Selera Kampung In Perlis

It was on my way back to Kuala Lumpur from Kangar when I decided to stop for lunch. Reached Simpang Empat. Local call it as Simpang Empat Tok Kassim. Who Tok Kassim is, I am not sure. We stop at this selera kampung stall at Simpang Empat. The stall is located opposite the Simpang Empat police station and in front of the public library. If you were to travel from Kangar, the stall is on the right just before the traffic light and the river.  The stall is Wan Selera Kampung. It is open from 10.00 a.m till late evening. But I think the best time to visit is during lunch hour because the food will be more fresh compared in late evenings. 

Besides the ordinary shed, there are also small huts with attap roof that can sit 6 person. The attap create a cool environment inside. 

Food served are self serviced and fresh. One reason is that Simpang Empat is located not far from the Kuala or estuary and locals are mostly fishermen. For that reason sea food here is fresh and you can taste the sweetness of it. 

This guy’s job is to prepare ikan bakar and served immediately. He will  grill the fish over charcoal fire. 

The variety of dishes laid neatly on the table. 

If westerners take raw vegetables as salad, Malaysians eat raw veges too. The difference is these are taken as ulam, dip in preparation of chilli and prawn paste or belacan. These local vegetables is believe to have some medicinal effects. There are choice of ‘ulams’ to bechosen from.  

Varieties of fresh grilled fish to be chosen from.
One of the factor for good taste of curry is because it is cooked in clay pots over wood fire. Three dishes of curry to choose from.

Kelantan Dihukum

Kelantan telah dihukum akibat kejadian rusuhan yang berlaku di Stadium Sultan Muhammad Ke IV sewaktu perlawanan Kelantan menentang Negeri Sembilan. Kelantan bukan sahaja tewas di tangan pasukanpelawat itu tetapi juga kehilangan khidmat penjaga gol berpengalamannya, Halim Napi yang digantung sendiri oleh KAFA kerana tindakannya menyerang pemain Negeri Sembilan Aidil Zafuan. Tindakan Halim ini dikatakan sebagai penyebab tercetusnya insiden yang tidak diingini diKota Bharu itu.

Kelantan bukan sekadar kehilangan Halim akibat pergantungan tetapi juga hilang hak untukmenjadi tuan rumah bagi perlawanan-perlawanan seterusnya. Perlawanan antara Kelantan dan Selangor akan diadakan di venue berkecuali iaitu Stadium Nasional, Bukit Jalil. Keputusan itu walaupun sebagai hukuman kepada penyokong pasukan Kijang itu sebenarnya menguntungkan pasukan Selangor. Walaupun dikatakan venue berkecuali tetapi tidak memberikan apa-apa kesan kepada penyokong Selangor dari segi jarak berbanding penyokong Kelantan. Akibat segelintir penyokong yang mengikut emosi pada malam kejadian, keseluruhan penyokong Kelantan turut terhukum. 
Semoga apayang berlaku di Kota Bharu tidak akan terjadi di tempat lain. Sukan adalah sukan dan keganasan bukan sebahagian dari budaya bersukan.
