Assalamualaikum Pak Adib

Yes the New Malaysia Hall is ready. We will be moving to the premises on 20.5.2004.

Kind Regards

Pak Din

That's wonderful news..Not that I'll be going to London anytime soon..:-) Insya-Allah..who knows...I'll get to visit this great, grey, smoggy city again and eat at the new Malaysia Hall!

Asalamualaikum Abang Adib,

Your posting here on MSD brings me poignant memories. What use to be the focal point for some of us (44 or was it 46 Brynston Square, London) is now Queensborough Terrace albeit still near the Bayswater area.

To most of us, it is Malaysian Food at 50p, although to others it could have been the headquarters of "Gestapo". Food was worth waiting where queues used to have a tail somewhere outside the hall itself. Some of us would tingkle the piano in the hall area wwhile waiting for our meal ;-).

It would be good to drop by and see the new MSD.

Gone were the days when you can buy food at 50p:-( When I was there in 2000,one cup of teh tarik cost me 70p.If I remember correctly, I need to spend about 3 to 5 pounds for lunch or dinner.

When I was studying at Sheffiled University in 1973-1976, a good lunch at Malaysian Hall is a big treat.At that time, it cost me 3 pound by train from Sheffield to London.Now,it can't even buy a packet of Dunhill.Now,travels and food cost a lot more.

Asalamualaikum Abang Adib,

Yeah, I suppose last time (1979-1984), food in Malaysia Hall use to be subsidised. Dropping there in ^87 it used to cost 90p (I think) for a plate of rice, chicken curry and an apple.

Later towards the 90s, it went up to 2 pounds 50 and later to 3 pounds. But I still drop by there just to meet people. Otherwise I will end up somewhere near Paddington at one of those Arab Food hall for Bryiani.

Yes, those were the days when a weekend ticket from Swansea to London used to cost 8 pounds fifty. Crispy were at 8p and tea were at 10p and MARS bars were at 16p. I remember when my wife was working for Cadbury - it was heaven for me.

don't know when I'll have the chance to go there again. but if it's in Bayswater, it's quite close to MARA Hostel.

Thanks for the photo,Atok.

Abedib, I've viewed Atok's photopages. Rindunya! Rasa nak pi sekarang jugak!

My Bank is sending me for a 2 weeks course in London in Sept. I would like to find out more on the accomodation at the new Malaysian hall (room rate, etc). I plan to stay day for few days after the course.

I and my family consits of 7 of us would like to go to uk somewhere next week on 6/12/07. Is Malaysian Hall do have a room with 2 @ 3 bedrooms inside or maybe we can say something like an apartment. If you do, could you advise us how to book and what type of payment mode would you preffer best.

If you don't , may you give me any place that offer apartment service somewhere in central london.

Noor Malla,
With 7 persons in the family, it is more convenient to stay at a service apartment.I used to stay at Park West Apt.Here is the link for you to check:

hahahaa.... guano ni abe dib... macae jjadi agent msia hall + london apartment pulok jadinyo. keno ambik commission la lagu ni gak :)

It must the google search engine.May be my posting is more popular than masduke;-)hehehe..Joking a side,people may prefer to deal with a person than a government agency.I kept giving reply for those who wish to know to contact Malaysia Hall, but I keep getting the question directed to me.

You give me a very good idea!Why didnot I think of becoming an agent for some service apartments/B&B in London area?Just like Tok Sheikh Haji.Then I can go to London every year;-)
