I’m sure most of you people know who Michael Jackson was (duh!)… But do you know that the name ‘Michael Jackson’ could take a totally different meaning in Penang? If you have not already experienced this, don’t be surprised when you hear a waiter/waitress holler out loud “Michael Jackson!” in a local food court or coffee shop – for he/she does not mean to call someone who shares the same name as the dead megastar, but it’s a name of a popular drink of soya bean milk with herbal jelly (local calls it ‘cincau’). Who came up with the name, I am not sure, but it would sure to get one ponder as to why they came up with the name. Was it for the ‘Black or White’ song? Or his known condition with vitiligo? I guess we’d never know. Here’s the picture of it in case you do not believe me…
