Will the real Coconut Shake please stand up?

>> Friday, August 16, 2013


You know, I've heard people talk about The Coconut Shake in Melaka and I thought to myself, hey, I have a lot of relatives from my dad's side there. Maybe I can find this refreshingly sounding beverage while down there for a visit, usually for Hari Raya or weddings and such. I even suggested as such to my mom.

"Anak Tok Itam pun ada jual coconut shake ni. Nanti mama bawak pergi balik raya ni" (My grandfather's brother's (it boggles the mind!) child sells coconut shake. I'll take you there during Raya festive period), said my mother.

Oh, cool (no pun intended)! What are the odds?

What are the odds indeed. My relative have always lived in Klebang, arwah Tok Itam was a fishermen, and the famous Coconut Shake is called "Klebang Original Coconut Shake". It took me a few minutes to connect the dots.

O-oooooooo. Well, this is embarrassing. My parents, uncles and aunts have all gone there but I have yet to partake in this local delicacy, which I intend to remediate as soon as possible. And if, in the attempt, I over-corrected myself i.e. overindulge, well, just consider it one of the sacrifices we make in the name of familial bond.

Holy sweet nectar fit for royals, batman! I finished like two of these babies in one sitting. With half a nasi lemak bungkus, despite only having breakfast less than a couple of hours ago, I might add. There were other light snacks to choose from as well, various types of local kueh, mihun bungkus etc. And did I mention it was cheap as well? 6 shakes and 2 nasi lemak bungkus at only RM15.60? Technically, we could have gotten it for free, but business is business, family is family, right? Anyways, we got one shake FOC, so that's alright.


Head stuffed with cotton and a belly-ful of icy goodness, as we were headed back to Kuala Lumpur, I noticed there were other so-called coconut shakes along the way. Now, I'm not saying that anybody should just take my word for it that Klebang Original Coconut Shake is the best coconut shake in Melaka (JB and Singapore - hehe I just had to add). By all means, please support the local economy and purchase any one if it strikes your fancy.  All I'm saying is... will the real Coconut Shake please stand up!
