Addiction is something that gets us going or involved habitually and by all means keeps us happy. Let’s drill down, what Malaysian are actually smitten to these days?
First of all, smartphones!
Time has changed. We were in an era of BS (before smartphone), instead of BC. Boy oh boy, this little fellow has transformed the entire world, sure la we Malaysians pun ikut. And your parents be like,”can you give rest to your eyes or not?!” Relax la daddy, it’s all technology dalam tempurung.
Our smartphones has now taken over the roles of – fitness guru, accounts assistant, reminders, calendars, games, photo editor, e-book, e-payment and the list is undying. (Honestly, only Whatsapp and Facebook je)
Family dinners, in the theaters, parties, classrooms and even before we could complete our wake-up yawn, we’ve turned on our phone. Still tak cukup kan, you can even chat during your bath, go waterproof.
Which Results to SELFIES… (Oh dear, not in the bathroom please)
Duck face, duck face everywhere….. and Instagram users would continually upload food photos with hashtags more than the ingredients itself. Recently noticed a selfie picture during haze with caption – #icantstandthehazeanymore. *speechless*
And it’s Assistants
No more the days where our dad used to walk around with only phone and wallet in his pockets. Now we are evolved into an “Inspector Gadget”. Power bank, USB cable, Ipad, Iphone and etc, but stylish also la.
Other than that, it’s the Nasi Kandars effect
Lately, there were grapevines that food services are being considered to stop running 24/7 that turned us into angry Spartans! You must be out of your mind, mister! This is Malaysia! We need food around the clock! Besides the mouth-watering food, the main reasons are…
…..The Beverage Brothers
Latte, expresso, mocha… apa apa je lah! You still can’t beat our Milo Ais Kaw and Teh Tarik! Malaysians absolutely worship these two quenchers, which continually tops the bills at nasi kandars. Moreover, no matter how much you try at home, you just can’t beat our mamak anne.
Nothing more spectacular and raw rather than hitting the nasi kandar stalls with the locals watching football in the big screen. And if Malaysia scores, rapture of roars! (At times, ice cubes hit the screens too, sorry bang lepas frustration.)
Properties (Say what?)
Are you sure ha? Ask yourself how much have you been talking about properties in recent years and it’s mushrooming everywhere you see. If you’re in Penang, you can even bare the haze than the housing prices. The best thing is that everyone has their own opinion, never-ending. There are those sealing up investments, first time buyers sweating for capital and geniuses who cleverly bought a few before the housing prices hit the roof.
Alright, at times we do see houses for sale/rent for value below market price. It could be a makcik without greed. But wait, we are Malaysians, if no cerita also, it’s our duty to korek till a story comes out. People suicide there kot, haunted house, gangster neighbourhood, and very bad feng shui.
And ghosts are like – I’ve vacated long time ago, too many people come for viewing loooorrr!
Last, but not least. Lepak-KING
Oi, where you going? Jalan –jalan la! That’s for elderly ones, in other words – lepak. No matter how busy life can be, we’ve got to sink in new restaurants, movies, window-shopping and need a change of ambiance. Daddy, your zaman all don’t have so many shopping malls la, that’s why you duduk rumah.
