KUCHING, April 15 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin

Yassin showed his soft domestic side yesterday when he tried his hand at making

apam balik, a type of pancake, during his 1Malaysia walkabout at the farmers''

and night market in the MJC new township in Batu Kawah, here.

Under the watchful eyes and guidance of stall owner Chung Fha Sin, he

flipped over the apam balik into a crispy snack to the delight of the traders

and members of the public, who had stopped to shake hands with the DPM.

"He (Muhyididn) asked me how to make it (apam balik) and I showed him how to

do it, and it turns out alright," Chung, 46, proudly told Bernama, adding that

he would keep the one made by the DPM as a souvenir.

He said he enjoyed brisk sales, especially during public holidays for his

speciality, which is sold at between 70 and 90 sen.

Accompanied by his wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Raahman and Barisan Nasional

(BN) Batu Kawah incumbent in tomorrow''s state election, Tan Joo Phoi, Muhyiddin

mingled easily with the people visiting the market.

SARAWAK-MUHYIDDIN (TRADERS) 2 (LAST) KUCHING

Set up in 2008, the market has 260 stalls managed by the Federal Agriculture

Marketing Authority (FAMA) and another 100 by a local company, Triple S

Enterprise at the area, which is under the jurisdiction of the Padawan Municipal

Council.

Durian trader Foon Kuet Poh, 45, felt very honoured that Muhyiddin had not

only stopped to chat with him but also sampled his durians, which were sourced

from Bau, his hometown.

"Eat, eat," said the deputy prime minister in the Chinese-Hokkien dialect as

he offered Norainee a bite of the "King of Fruits" to the applause of those

present.

Barbecued chicken trader Mohamad Azuan Morni, 23, was also very happy that

he had the opportunity to shake hands and exchanged greetings with Muhyiddin,

who bought a whole chicken from him. His chicken is sold at RM15 each.

The Batu Kawah constituency has a mixed Chinese and Bumiputera electorate

of 20,664 registered voters.
