Village to hold nasi ambeng feast if Germany win World Cup

> Village to hold nasi ambeng feast if Germany win World Cup
Residents at Kampung Parit Jerman, which earned its name after German nationals took up residence in the village for pineapple trading, will throw a grand nasi ambeng feast if Germany secure victory in the World Cup final on Monday morning. For over 40 years, the Perak village has thrown its support behind Germany in the World Cup, and the team’s 7-1 blitzkrieg against host Brazil has given them more cause for cheer. Nasi ambeng, which is a traditional favourite of rice, fried noodles, sweet tofu skin with tempe (soya bean cake), fried grated coconut and fried chicken, is suitable for communal celebrations as each serving is shared on a large platter by four people. 

> Sundry shop manager chomps down on crime
A 21-year-old sundry shop manager was about to deposit the shop’s two-day earnings in a bank at Jinjang, Sentul, when two motorcycle-riding robbers tried to snatch the bag. The victim tried to prevent the criminal from stealing a sling bag containing RM7,000 by biting down hard on one robber’s hand, who reacted by slashing at the victim with a parang. The victim sustained injuries to the right wrist and palm and lost the shop’s takings to the robbers. He was rushed to the hospital by witnesses at the scene. Police have asked anyone with information to come forward to assist with investigations, which is being conducted under Section 395 of the Penal Code for gang robbery. 

> 3,000 sets of Hari Raya finery up in flames
Over RM110,000 worth of baju Melayu and baju kurung went up in flames after a fire razed seven houses in Kampung Ampang Campuran on Wednesday. The tailor, Asnul Faizul Muhd Nasir, is shocked over the loss of 3,000 Hari Raya orders, and also lost seven sewing machines to the fire. “I don’t know how to tell my customers that their orders have been destroyed,” said the 29-year-old, who only managed to save a portion of the completed work after ensuring his family’s safe escape from the accident site. The 10.15am incident is believed to have started from a fire at a plastic factory nearby, which also torched a surau.
