Every country has its own unique qualities, and for us Malaysians, we definitely pride ourselves with the AMAZING food our Bolehland has to offer. With great food comes great struggles as well, and here are some of the things we Malaysians who love food definitely face:

1. It’s more than just ‘for survival’

Yes, eating is meant to keep humans alive but not for most Malaysians who are known to be foodies! We eat at will and not because of a hungry stomach okay? Just done with lunch? Let’s go indulge in some Pisang Goreng and maybe a bowl of Cendol after!

 

2. The constant dilemma of choosing where and what to eat

As Malaysians, we are spoilt for choice. There’s Malay cuisine, Chinese, Indian and not to mention the all-time favourite mamak. So roti canai or char kuey tiow? We can hardly decide really!

4. Food overseas just don’t taste like the ones back home and you’ll start to miss them immensely

When we’re overseas, food usually never taste as good as the ones back home. They are either too bland or is missing that extra something. Not to mention all your friends back home who are making you die a little more inside every time you stumble across their pictures of the delicious, delicious local food.

Bored? Stressed? Meeting up with friends you didn’t see for a while? As Malaysians, we have the perfect plan for this, it’s to makan! And because of all this makan, it’s seriously hard to save any money.

7. That struggle to say “No, thanks” while being offered food because you actually secretly really want it

As Asians, it’s our nature to decline an offer from someone because paiseh mah! So when someone asks, “Do you want to try some?”, 90% of the time, we’d say “No, thanks,” but in all honesty, we are dying inside after rejecting food.

Nyehehe. Admit it, we all do this.

Just when we’re tucked in comfortable in our bed, our tummy rumbles. Great. Now, either we drag ourselves out of our bed, or actually go out in the dark night to find us some food.
