Big Lau | Opium Coffee

Another interesting short documentary about Opium Coffee that once famous for the oldies in Kuching town because it hits close to home. I remember when i was still little girl - sometimes my fader [Read: Father] will bring me [with or without my brother and mother] for breakfast, his late-uncle sometimes will tagged along in the car but infrequently joined us.

He is that time already in his 60s, was a sailor during his young-age and he can speak chinese!

Usually my fader will drop him somewhere at Central Police Station before we proceed to go breakfast somewhere at Pasar Ceko [I ever blog about it few years back, Read about it here]

My fader will then pick him up after that at the exact spot. 

Anyways, i didnt know exactly about the Opium Coffee - never really heard about it but i only curious my fader's late-uncle always go 'lepak' there. I heard about him saying about craving for coffee to my fader before he drop off, but i was too young to ask about it. After years gone by i totally forgotten about it until 13 October 2018!

Thank you to Mr Director Lau of BIG LAU Studio 大刘工作室 for answering my long-overdue question. LOL!

So it's the Opium Cafe hidden somewhere at the back alley of Central Police Station area. 

One of the shot from the short film - Opium Coffee
so is Opium Coffee really a cup of coffee with OPIUM?


rest easy... it's just the name...
Anyways this is a great sessions and hope to have more like this in future so our own local talent can exposed themself and Kuching citizen can support them in return because as far as i know currently there are no society for them. 

Kudos to OutBox 57 for organising this..! I wish everyone the best and hope to see more of your artwork soon! Proud of y'all!
