KLUANG RAIL COFFEE DIPERAKUI SEBAGAI KOPITIAM KERETA API TERTUA DI MALAYSIA

Perakuan ini diberikan oleh Malaysia Book of Records sempena sambutan Ulang Tahun ke-84 kopitiam itu pada 18 Julai lalu.

220718 - JPG-1 (1)

Satu majlis penganugerahan dan penyerahan sijil  telah diadakan di kopitiam pertama yang dibuka pada tahun 1938 di Jalan Stesen, Kluang, Johor.

KLUANG-RAIL-COFFEE-scaled (2)

Imbasan sejarah pembukaannya, Kluang Rail Coffee di buka pada awal peperangan Dunia 2 dan telah mengalami detik-detik kepayahan sewaktu Tanah Melayu dijajah oleh British dan Jepun. Meskipun bakal membuka satu lagi cawangan di Kampung Masjid Lama, kopitiam asli yang dibina pada tahun 1909 ini terus menjadi bangunan peliharaan sejarah dan dengan kehadiran Kluang Rail Coffee ia menjdi sinonim sebagai salah satu lokasi tarikan pelancong di Kluang.

Dibuka oleh Lim Luan Hee dengan pada masa itu hanya satu kati gula bersama beberapa tin susu sahaja yang ditawarkan, ia berfungsi sebagai kantin yang menjadi tumpuan masyarakat sekeliling dan pekerja kerajaan.

Pada masa itu, kereta api adalah pengangkutan utama dan penghubung bagi masyarakat di sana. Kedudukannya di kawasan yang strategik berdekatan dengan pondok polis, pejabat pos, pejabat telekom, hospital dan pentadbiran kerajaan menjadikannya ia tumpuan dan popular di kalangan kawasan itu apatah lagi ia menawarkan makanan pagi dan kopi seawal pukul 6.30 pagi. Dari semasa ke semasa, perniagaan ini berkembang sehingga berubah menjadi kopitiam atau kedai kopi di daerah Kluang. Ketika itu, Kluang Rail Coffee berada di bawah tadbiran anak Lim, iaitu Lim Heng Yong dan kemudiannya diwarisi oleh cucunya, Lim Jit Chen.

Mengimbas kembali memori lama, Lim Jit Chen atau Jack, menurutnya hidangan Hainan banyak dipengaruhi oleh cita rasa Inggeris dan Asia.

“Sebagai contoh, Inggeris menyukai roti bakar bersmaa jem sewaktu makan pagi. Pada masa Perang Dunia 2, harga jem yang diimpot sangat mahal, marjerin pula adalah barangan mewah. Jadi, sarapan di kopitiam bertukar kepada roti bakar dimakan bersama mentega dan kaya. Telur separuh masak pula adalah tambahan cita rasa Asia”

 Kluang Rail Coffee memang dikenali kerana kopi tradisional Hainan (yang dihasilkan daripada kopi Liberica yang ditanam secara tempatan) dan roti bakar dengan mentega bersama kaya.

Meskipun sudah lebih 80 tahun mengharungi cabaran dan dugaan bermula dari Perang Dunia 2 dan Merdeka, sehingga kepada Malayan Emergency, perniagaan kopitiam tidak terjejas malah terus komited menawar makanan dan minuman berkualiti dengan harga mampu pada komuniti sekeliling. Ia juga menjadi simbol keterangkuman budaya, berkembang mengikut masa demi memenuhi selera rakyat Malaysia.

“Nasi lemak bungkus yang dibuat oleh masyarakat tempatan adalah salah satu contoh.  Sebab itu kami berbangga menyatakan Kluang Rail Coffee adalah restoran Halal yang diiktiraf JAKIM. Meskipun perniagaan semakin berkembang, kami akan terus menyanjungi dan menghormati warisan yang ada dan ditonjolkan pada perkhidmatan kami kepada komuniti. Kluang Rail Coffee adalah tempat yang diwujudkan di kereta api dan kopitiam sebenar rakyat Malaysia. Inilah tempat yang menjadi tumpuan yang mengeratkan pelbagai bangsa hanya dengan kopi secawan selama 84 tahun. Maksudnya, perhubungan ini bukan sekadar makan dan minum tetapi pengalaman tetapi apa yang dirasai sesama pelanggan”

Pada 2008, Lim Jit Chen dan saudaranya, Lim Jit Tong bekerjsama mengembangkan lagi perniagaan dengan mempelbagaikan menu tempatan dan antara bangsa. Sehingga kini Kluang Rail Coffee beroperasi dengan EMPAT kopitiam di Kluang dengan lebih 70 pekerja mahir. TIGA lagi kopitiam terletak di Jalan Duku, Jalan Tasik dan Sri Impian, semuanya di daerah Kluang.

Kini, meskipun satu kopitiam baru sedang dalam pembinaan di Kampung Masjid Lama, kopitiam yang lama masih kekal menjadi bangunan bersejarah dan Kluang Rail Coffee masih menjadi tarikan pelancong di daerah Kluang. Adanya penganugerahan oleh Malaysia Book of Records ini, menjadikan sebagai tapak untuk mengembangkan lagi perniagaannya pada masa hadapan. 

“Kami telah mengharungi perjalanan yang epik daripada kecil kepada menghadapi pelbagai dugaan dengan kepuasan. Penganugerahan yang kasi terima hari ini adalah hasil daripada usaha dan sokongan berterusan daripada rakyat Kluang. Mereka juga berhak menerima pengiktirafan ini. Ini adalah salah satu rahsia terbaik di Kluang selama 84 tahun. Masa akan datang akan melibatkan pelbagai lagi hidangan di cawangan serata negeri dan juga mempromosikan Kluang sebagai destinasi tarikan pelancong””-Lim Jit Tong, Pengarah Kluang Rail Coffee Sdn Bhd.

Semuanya atas dedikasi dan komitmen Kluang Rail Coffee dalam menawarkan kopi dan makanan enak, membina hubungan bersama pelanggan dan memberi yang terbaik pada harga mampu milik.

Tahniah Kluang Rail Coffee atas pengiktirafan Malaysia Book of Records!

The event brought to life exhibition stand mock-ups and various event setups to demonstrate practical examples of how business events in the new normal are being conducted in a controlled, organised, safe and structured manner, as part of an effort to rebuild public confidence in the meetings and events industry. By attending the launch, stakeholders and the media had a first-hand experience of event execution in the new normal.

The launch also included a briefing session for industry players and stakeholders on how to apply the BE Guidelines when planning and executing their events. The briefing covered employee and personal safety, physical distancing measures, increased health and safety measures, attendee management and control, as well as on-site communication encouraging adherence and the provision of guidance and compliance.

Chairman of BECM, Alan Pryor, shared,

“We are pleased to resume business events with strict adherence to stringent health and hygiene measures and our prime importance is to provide a safe, controlled and regulated operating environment for our clients, stakeholders and event attendees. We would like to commend the solidarity and collaboration of the industry supply-chain to proactively drive engagement with Government to get our industry SOP approved and to demonstrate that business events, unlike mass gatherings, are executed in a safe, controlled, and regulated environment.”

According to MACEOS President, Dato’ Vincent Lim,

“All of us must take note that it will be a new normal in organising and welcoming our visitors or delegates to our business events. Now that we have the BE industry guidelines and SOPs endorsed, we urge all members, professional conference organisers (PCOs), professional exhibitions organisers (PEO), convention centres, contractors service providers, and other stakeholders to strictly observe and comply to these SOPs.

These guidelines must be practiced; providing assurance and gaining public confidence that business events like exhibitions and conferences are safe; and that all industry players must play their role to collectively work and continue to take precautionary measures to ensure the safety and health of everyone as our foremost priority.”

Pryor concluded, “We welcome the additional steps that the Government has taken to support our sector. We continue to have open dialogue with the Government and are actively engaging with them on the value of our industry to the economy’s recovery. As a social and economic driver, Business Events deliver thousands of jobs, economic impact and grows Malaysia’s profile and market share globally. We are confident that with the Government’s support the Malaysian business events industry is well positioned to rebound strongly, and are thrilled to be hosting events again safely and securely.”

The ‘BE-READY’ launched was jointly organised by BECM and MACEOS, co-hosted by MyCEB and the Centre (venue host), with support by industry partners including C-BOSS, DOREMi, InQBay and Pico.

Permaju is involved in the distribution of Volkswagen and Ford franchises, also property development and owns big parcels of land in Sabah and Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.

Alam Puteri by Permaju
Pemaju Industries Bhd is turning from developer to glove market to meet the global shortage of gloves

In Seremban, it has more than 300 acres of land that is suitable for property development or industrial activities. The group has been mulling to use the Seremban land to undertake various businesses, including property development projects but the plans did not materialise due to the challenging market conditions. They may use the land to construct a glove manufacturing plant for its new venture.

Currently in Malaysia, the glove manufacturing business is dominated by Top Glove Glove Corp Bhd, Supermax Corp Bhd, Hartalega Holdings Bhd and Kossan Rubber Industries Bhd.

Last year, global demand for gloves was 290 billion pieces, of which 187 billion were supplied by Malaysia. The current global demand for gloves is more than 300 billion pieces, owing to the pandemic.

Analysts who spoke on condition of anonymity said that Permaju may emerge as the next big player in the market as it has strong investors’ backing to take glove manufacturing to a higher scale. They also believe that demand for gloves will continue to rise because of a shortage of gloves in major markets worldrubber gloves 3wide.
