Kek Lapis Factory Destroyed in Fire!

Don't worry. This is not about Nee. Contrary to what many people might believe, she does not have a cake factory.

Rabiah Amit, the sole person who single handedly promoted Sarawakian kek lapis (layered cake) to this region for the past 3 decades, was shocked to find that her factory burnt down, with the rest of her 500 recipes.

This powerhouse of a lady had sold more kek lapis than any living person in the world. Her kek lapis publication is selling as hot as her cakes, still, to this very moment, outselling every single English & Chinese cullinary book in Malaysia.

Looking at this photo, of course it's understandable that she needs as much support as possible now, seeing that she's actually the single largest producer of kek lapis as a Sarawakian cultural product (which was borrowed from the Indonesians apparently). But looking at the concerned politician, I can't help but to wonder if he's more concerned about this tragedy or his appearance in the newspaper.

Now West Malaysians coming to Sarawak have one thing less to bring back aside from the pottery & Ikan Terubok.
