Top 5 At 5: Ipoh White Coffee, Ferries, and Household Debt

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our mini Popek Popek Parlimen, where we bring you updates from the Dewan Rakyat. Today's main topics: the Progressive Wage Policy, the reparation of potholes and damaged roads, and PADU registrations.

2. Ipoh white coffee is ranked 10th most popular coffee in the world! We dive into the history and cultural significance of our local brew from Ipoh.

3. A proposed reactivation of ferry services between Peninsular and Borneo, which may improve tourism and travels between these two parts of Malaysia.

4. Police probes into a news anchor's claims of being treated rudely by two policemen, which sparks discussion on how criticism towards public authorities should be handled.

5. Our top story: Malaysia's aggregated household debt reaches a whopping RM 1.53 trillion, which may severely impact consumption and the future of our economy.

For these stories, we heard from food historian, Nadge Ariffin, and lawyer, Kee Shu Min.
