MINUM FOR MERDEKARYA

Dear Merdekaryans,

This is a fundraiser. Yes, another one.
Yes, we know we just did one. Yes, we told
you we wouldn’t do another one. We had
a plan to beat this. And early indications
were that things were going according 
to plan.

 

And then we got arrested. For employing
migrant workers without the relevant permits.
Of this, we are guilty as charged but unremorseful,
our lives having been significantly enriched with them being a part of it all these years.

Of our lockup stay, nothing will be said here except that we were treated with remarkable kindness and empathy by the other criminals we shared cells with. There are other stories to tell for sure, but they’re best regaled over tuak.

Which brings us again to Minum for Merdekarya – round two.

We’ve spent a lot of money - lebih kurang 25k – on legal fees, fines and faham-faham jelah – to get everyone out, and then had to deal with loss of income (lebih kurang 10k) for the subsequent six weeks.

If you’d like to help us recoup that, here’s how you can:

We’re re-opening bar b (non-halal, downstairs), our all-new balcony bar
(sorry, currently closed because we're severely understaffed) AND The Live Bar (event SOPs apply) throughout the month of September. 22 musicians have graciously agreed to play for us (free entry!) throughout the month at The Live Bar.

We’re asking that you jom layan muzik akarumbi, minum-makan, maybe a little more than you usually do, at any one of the three bars throughout the month. We’ll be open Tuesdays to Saturdays, 6pm onwards.

We’ve got new tuak infusions (six flavours – cinnamon, lime zest, asamboi, ginger, orange bitters, cucumber), langkau infusions (four flavours) and ginger beer that we can’t wait for you to try.

Table reservations are sangat-sangat recommended:
whatsapp 0162071553 or 0162020529 with the following details:


1) Your name

2) Which bar you'd like to make a reservation for 
3) What date and time (we'll hold tables for 15minutes max after that time)

 

If you'd like to just donate, that's great too! You can bank in to:

Thank you.

Again.
