When you hear the word ‘cham’, what pops into your head? Is it ‘ma’cham’-ma’cham’ or maybe ‘cham-pur’?
We recently had a fun survey on Instagram through WeirdKaya’s Story, all about unraveling the secrets of ‘cham’. We asked a simple question: where does the term ‘cham’ come from? Is it Tagalog, Thai, or Hokkien?
Turns out, most people thought it’s linked to Hokkien, and they hit the bullseye! ‘Cham’ actually stems from the Hokkien dialect, meaning to mix or join. That’s the real scoop behind it.
You know when we talk about ‘cham’, many immediately thinks of the iced ‘cham’ at the kopitiam, right? That delightful combo of coffee and tea, with that distinctive kaww flavour – very nice lah the champuran!
Malaysians are the real ‘cham’ themselves
Now, here’s something cool – Malaysians are a bit ‘cham’ themselves.
Just like the kopitiam cham blends different tastes, Malaysia is a mix of cultures – Malays, Chinese, Indians, and more from Sabah and Sarawak. We’re like a big, diverse family!
But what does ‘cham’ really mean for Malaysians?
Our survey brought in all sorts of answers!
Some linked ‘cham’ to the famous local dish Char Kuey Teow, others thought about the classic tea and coffee companionship, and there were even creative connections to the word ‘kesian’ (pity) in Malay. People had some fun interpretations, and it was a joy to see!
But guess what? Our little survey led us to discover something exciting – Cham Berry by Vochelle!
