The theme that I had chosen for my coffee booklet is food culture. Among the
choices that had given, I decided to do research on Kopitiam about its historical,
architectural and social aspects. The area of kopitiams that I had visited is within the
area of Subang jaya. During the research, I had visited 5 Kopitiams which is Restoan
Sri S, Restoran Nam Yiang, Hailam Kopitiam, Restoran Foh Foh and Restoran
Unlimited. Basically, Kopitiam is a coffee shop found in southeast areas, patronised
for meals and beverages. Kopitiam mostly visited by the Chinese customers for
having their breakfast and afternoon tea in Malaysia. Kopitiam serves variety type of
drinks such as Milo, coffee, Tea, Horlik, oatmeal water drinks and etc. On the other
hands, it also servers foods like egg, toast with kaya, Pau and etc. Customers prefer to
go Kopitiam as it serves cheaper which not exceed RM 10 per person and they like to
read newspapers or chatting with each other while having their drinks. After done my
research, I want to introduce the culture, foods, drinks, activities and environment of
