Remembering Sudirman

Remembering Sudirman

With Merdeka Day around the corner (holi-yay!), one can’t help linking this national day to the song Tanggal 31 Ogos ("The Date of 31 st of August") by the late iconic star Sudirman Arshad.

A gifted entertainer since young, Sudirman’s career started after winning the Bintang RTM singing competition in 1976. His career-defining moment came after he was bestowed the "Asia's No. 1 Performer" title during the '‘Asian Popular Music Awards'’ competition held at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1989.

To understand the magnitude of his popularity, we have to go back to 1986, when I was still a child. Sudirman held an open-air concert on Chow Kit Road, the first time ever that a street concert drew a 100,000-strong crowd on a Monday night. It jammed the stretch of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Raja Muda all the way to Jalan Raja Alang. Fans was seen not only on streets but on top of roofs and trees.

A Malaysian English tabloid, The Star, wrote that "Kuala Lumpur came to a standstill and it had nothing to do with the recession, but with one man, Malaysia's top entertainer, an electrifying performance and most memorable night". To this day, Sudirman's Jalan Chow Kit concert has not been replicated nor has a similar concert been organised in Malaysia.

Sudirman’s songs, particularly Tanggal 31 Ogos, in a way, captures that journey. Whenever we hear this catchy song, we are reminded of that sweet feeling of independence and share in Sudirman’s patriotism, too.

The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for everyone. During this tough time, we can look to Sudirman and our forefathers who fought for independence; let their spirit inspire us to soldier on. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. We too can overcome the challenges of our time. #KitaPastiMenang

As we celebrate Merdeka Day, let’s take a moment to be grateful for our home, Malaysia. And don’t forget to sing along to Tanggal 31 Ogos. I sure will!

Good service but needs clarity on important informatiin

Labels could be clearer esp info about date of consumption etc. Also reps should know how nuts are sourced- whether or not pesticides were used etc esp how farmers. This is important info for buyers- esp those who have high consumption of nuts. Rep over the phone was lovely, and the packaging was cute too. Please work with your partners, and transparently convey to your buyers about info as such. Thank you!

Delightfully fresh and tasty

My family enjoyed this bag, especially the roasted pecans. A delicious, quality snack to have on-the-go. Also at family movie nights at home on the weekend!

An excellent mix!

An excellent mix! I've tried a few brands of mixed nuts but this bag from Origin Bulk Store is my favourite. The nuts were fresh, crunchy and tasty. I like the combination of almond, cashew nut, hazelnut and dried cranberry. Sweet goji berries add interesting flavour and texture to the mix. My family took this bag away on our annual holiday and it was gone in 2 days!

The cashews are good but almond not so.

Nuts

Liked the taste of all nuts bought hazelnut mix had too much hazelnuts though, what I did not like was that non of the bags shows any weight details so cannot be sure if I got less or the amount that was stated on you internet page at the time of purchase.
