The Rollies Roller

In ‘The Kiwi Rollies’ post, I did asked whether anyone can lend me rollie machine/roller?

Eventually, one of my colleague lend his rollie roller and even demonstrate to me the steps. Was surprise to know that he bought his rollie roller at 7-Eleven outlet in Kuching few years back. Now that Miri has 7-Eleven outlet, perhaps I will drop by to check it out.

Surprisingly the rollie roller is quite small and one require handy skills to roll a perfect rollie (as in compact and firm-sapa yang pandei merokok jak paham maksud ya).

First step is to place the filter into the rollie roller.

Secondly, place moderate amount of tobacco into the rollie roller.

Then, roll it slowly. This is to compress the tobacco so that you will have a compact and firm rollie stick. Too much of tobacco will caused the rollie roller get stucked and if that happened, you need to remove some of the tobacco.

The fourth step is to insert the rollie paper and roll is slowly. Again this is to compress the rollie paper and the tobacco together.

Once that is done, you’ll have a perfect rollie stick.

I do find smoking is hazardous to the health and this post is not to encourage my reader to do so but to share my findings on the sequel of my previous post. I believe you’re wise enough to make your own decision.

On the other hand, the Orang Ulu community does smoke rollies too but the rollies are hand rolled. Come to think of it, why not invent a rollie roller to suit the Orang Ulu rollies? Yes? No?

    I used to use that roller before but I ‘gave” up simply because it’s hard to be used on the go, then I switch to the thing that I called “tobacco-injecting-device” which is much easier but bigger and I’ve gave up that one also ūüėČ

      yes it does requires alot of time to get one stick done but so much faster than hand rolled. like my colleague said, during his free time he would roll few sticks in advance and placed it in his ciggie box.

      never heard of tobacco-injecting-device before? wonder how it look like?
