Zhong Nan Hai is the new type of cigarettes out in the market here in Bintulu. Before this, there’s Parkway. They’re readily available in most kopitiams, but you’ve to ask for it. It’s not sold directly off the shelf of kopitiams. As these ciggies are not taxed, one pack of those only costs RM2. TWO Freaking Ringgit Malaysia!! When I say it’s not taxed, you pretty much get meaning don’t you?
There’s a huge demand for this kinda cheap cigarettes as the tax for ciggies had virtually triple-stacked itself over the last few years. Take Dunhill for example, a pack of 20s costs RM5.50 two years ago, but it’s now RM8.90! A massive RM4.40 difference there. For an ordinary person, that’s the cost of a meal there.
One thing I like about it is its 8mg hologram. Bring out the classy side of the whole packaging.
Likewise, they’re all Made in People’s Republic of China. To be exact, their factory is in Beijing.
This is how the ciggies look like. Very light, and cool cause it’s menthol.
As usual, the Warnings and Amaran, No sales to person under 18, yada yada yada, Merokok Membahayakan Kesihatan (Smoking poses health risks).
The importer even showed their name on the packaging!! Every Zhong Nan Hai’s in Malaysia are distributed off from this little town of Bintulu, and thanks to the importer, there’s a cheaper alternatives for the Bintulu and the rest of the Sarawakian smokers.
Final words, Smoking Kills. Do not Smoke. Kthxbye.
