BANDAR SRI JEMPOL: A special edition of yellow and red roti canai, was among the special menu offered by a restaurant here, to celebrate the success of Negri Sembilan football team.

The Hobin Jang Hobin squad advanced to the 2017 FA Cup semi-final after overcoming Sabah with 1-0 aggregate in front of 20,000 fans at Stadium Paroi in Seremban last night.

CR Khan Ent restaurant, which is located at Serting Utama business centre here, offered 100 pieces of special edition roti canai to its customers since 10am this morning, sold at only RM0.50 cents per piece.

The colourful roti canai, which symbolises the state’s flag colours, was quick to draw attention among its customers, who had lined up as early as 8am.

The restaurant’s manager Salinah Asarullah Khan said the yellow and red roti canai was the restaurant’s effort, to show their support towards the state’s football team.

“It has been a while since our football team could advance to the semi-final. We are so proud with the latest development, and to show our gratitude and support towards the team, we decided to come out with this special edition,” she said.

Salinah said, the sale of the special edition meal might be extended after the next match, and the quantity would depend on the number of goals scored by the state’s team.

“We are overwhelmed by the responses, with majority of them are die-hard fans of the state’s squad. We are also considering to give free roti canai to our customers if the team advances to the final round,” she said.
