IPOH: An unusual long queue was seen at the famous 'nasi ganja' in Yong Suan Coffee Shop along Jalan Yang Kalsom, here, as people waited to get their hands on their favourite dish, a day after 'nasi ganja' helicopter delivery news was reported.
Its owner, Mohd Nihmathullah Syed Mustaffah, 57 said it was not a normal sight to see such long queue especially during weekends throughout the Movement Control Order (MCO).
"I was shocked to see the number of customers today. They have been here since 11.30am today.
"I didn't expect this large crowd, especially during the weekend. They are so many people coming to buy 'nasi ganja' today, and I believe this is also my 'rezeki' after news of helicopter delivery was reported yesterday.
"I have also received a number of calls from my family, friends and regular customers who asked me who was the person who bought the 'nasi ganja' and had them delivered by helicopter.
"To be honest, I don't know. When I knew that my customer would pick up the order by helicopter, I didn't believe it and decided to deliver the order myself with my son-in-law.
"But when I saw there was a helicopter flying low, I knew it was real. We didn't talk much and only carried the 'nasi ganja' into the helicopter and they just left," he said when met at the restaurant today.
It was reported yesterday that a helicopter landed at Ipoh Padang here just to pick up 36 packs of Nasi Ganja booked by a customer from Kuala Lumpur.
Mohd Nihmathullah said he felt grateful as they were so many customers queuing outside the restaurant for the first time, since the implementation of MCO.
"Everything happens for a reason and it is also my 'rezeki'. I just deliver the order placed by customer from Kuala Lumpur yesterday, but today, I got so many customers," he said.
He added that every day, on average, he would sell 400 packets of 'nasi ganja' for walk-in customers and 90 packets for those who place the order via GrabFood.
