Kampung “Adidas”

What is Kampung “Adidas”? A new “Adidas” shoe model? Nope, it’s not. It’s rubber shoes made in Malaysia.

“Kampung” means village in Malay. Many villagers and now, many people who hike in Malaysia knows or wears this. Why “Adidas”? I was told that the shoe design used to have 3 lines like Adidas. Hence, the combination of Kampung “Adidas”.

Nowadays, it does not only sells the most convenient design (just slip-on) like the one shown in the photo above but there are other designs with shoelace and knobs on the soles, and more feminine design for woman.

This shoe is suitable for hiking, especially going through streams or muddy terrains. You won’t need to worry about the soggy feeling of your sneakers nor your sneakers will smell after a long walk nor headache of cleaning your sneakers from wet or dried mud. Just a rinse and wipe or let dry and you are good to go again. It’s sole grip on land and rocks is good, then especially when it’s new. After getting used to it, you will have more confidence stepping on wet rocks around streams (except those smooth or algae covered rocks, you will still need to becareful or avoid).

Here is where I got my pair at Serendah, a stop-by for breakfast before heading to Sungai Chilling, Kuala Kubu Bharu. It is priced at RM8.50 per pair but our bulk purchase got us RM0.50 discount each.

We stopped by Serendah for breakfast before heading to Kuala Kubu Bharu. This plain looking shop along the busy road of the Serendah town area, sells some delicious noodles.

Tan Ngan Lo Herbal Tea 单眼佬凉茶
I was welcomed surprisingly with this herbal tea in glass bottles. It is a rare view to see drinks selling in tall glass bottles. I love it! It is served chilled in bottles or your can request for hot ones.

Wan Tan Soup 云吞汤
It’s a nice clear soup with boiled and fried wanton, and vegetables. Simple, yet delicious. The soup doesn’t taste oily nor too pepper-ish.

Fried Wan Tan Mee (Signature noodle) 福建面 细面 (招牌面)
The english name does not represent fully what I expected. It’s fried hokkien-style noodle using noodle that used to make wanton noodle dish. They are handmade noodle. To me, the noodle tasted like thin pan mee noodle. It’s fried with squid, pork and vegetables. It’s strong hokkien mee flavour keeps me wanting more, especially when I’m hungry.

They also sell other noodles such as fried mee hoon, loh mee, cantonese fried noodle, etc. Each dish comes in 3 sizes – Small at RM5.50, Medium RM11.00, and Big for RM15.00.
