One vendor, Azman Ismail from Kocai Delicious Foodtruck who serves bubur kacang expressed delight over Umno's initiative of providing free meals for all.

"Today we have 25 food trucks. For tomorrow and Saturday, there will be 12 food trucks. Each of us will be serving at least one lunch menu a day and another for evening tea.

"Evening tea will start at 3pm," he told the New Straits Times here today.

Long queues can be seen at several food trucks here while others enjoying their Nasi Lemak and ice cream under the hot sun.
