The background of Paiman’s ice-cream selling

Azizan Paiman was invited to participate in the 1st Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale (Japan) in 1999. He created a sweet and spicy ice-cream (with the help of a local ice-cream manufacturer, and of course permitted coloring and flavoring).

The performance titled “Ais Krim Malaysia” took place at Kawabata Shopping street in Hakata (Fukuoka, Japan). Pushing his ice-cream cart, he gives out his Ais Krim Malaysia to curious passer-by, sharing with them the taste of Malaysia! He shouts in Japanese “Tada desu!” (meaning it is free!), “Umakabai” (It is delicious in Hakata slang) and “Okanae iranai” (no need money!)
