Commercial ventures.

I have not heard of anyone from Lipat Kajang who has been successful in their commercial ventures. Maybe there are but I have not heard of.

I understand that at one time the people of Lipat Kajang formed a Cooperative Society with the objective of going into retail shops, much like a sundry shop model, a rural venture, with the help of a Government Company. To the best of my knowledge it never got off the ground.

But small ventures (too small) there are. Too small to make a dent in the commercial world. Too localised. There are people from Lipat Kajang who on their own initiative got involved in the business of buying rubber raw material, dried and smoked rubber sheets, rubber scraps and probably latex in the old days. They survive, but I won’t say that they made/make a lot of money. There are those who had gone into sundry shops business. They also survive but not becoming filthy rich. And also there are who sell small stuff at weekly markets, especially the ladies. The income is too small to talk about.

All in I have not heard of any Lipat Kajang person/people who had made a name for himself or herself in the real big commercial world. There the odd professionals who has made a living of just being a professional; like Doctors, Accountants, Lawyers and Engineers.

But I stand corrected.

Lipat Kajang people (or decendents) are encouraged to participate& contribute (Orang Lipat Kajang, atau keturunan, di jemput memberi sumbangan idea)


  1. i have not heard of any, big or small
    but i'm sure there are and they don't live/reside in the kampong, they have been away for too long, doing their business where they could make it
    i know one anak LK who has been in the petrolum business (buka stesyen minyak) (how many stations he has now, more than 1 i'm sure) somewhere in Perak, in Kuala Kangsar i think, for more than 20 years already, again if i'm not wrong, and i heard he is quite well of now, successful lah tu

    and then i also have heard of a few now residing in the Klang Valley are also successful, but they choose to remain "anonymous" and quiet/unknown but of course we know them

  2. petrol station ........Samah di Kuala Kangsar and Sungei Siput.
