      saya rase kropok kakyah perlu diproses secara manual semula(gentel) bukannya gunakan mesin seperti sekarang.ini kerana kropok yang digentel secara manual lebih kenyal dan enak bila dikunyah….
      sebabtu,ramai orng telah beralih ke kopok adikberadik yang kedainya sebelah kdai kakyah…ini kerana proses buat kopok disitu masih lagi secara manual…
