Circulating on the Internet right now are videos of DJ Soda exploring Kuala Lumpur in a baju kebaya and construction worker attire

DJ Soda, whose her real name is Hwang So-hee, arrived in Malaysia on 1 November and has since been going around town in her yellow limousine.

Her visit to Kuala Lumpur is due to her November tour, where she performed in Y Club Kuala Lumpur last Friday.

In one of her videos, DJ Soda can be seen getting frightened by monkeys while trying to feed them at Batu Caves.

One monkey jumped over her head while she was standing on the colourful stairs, and another jumped towards her as she was holding a banana.

Each time the monkeys jumped, DJ Soda could be heard screaming in fear.

“My throat is hurting so bad, since I screamed a lot,” wrote the 31-year-old South Korean star on her Instagram.

The video was viewed 200,000 times on Facebook and 370,000 times on Instagram.

Many Malaysian netizens have since jumped into the comment section to welcome DJ Soda and tell her not to be afraid as the monkeys were only after her food

“Welcome to Gombak,” said a Malaysian netizen, referring to the location of the cave.

“Be careful. Best right (to be in) Malaysia?” another Malaysian Instagram user commented.

On 13 October, Twitter user Azhar Jamil shared a video of an interesting GrabFood request he received at a Housing and Development Board (HDB) flat in Singapore.

According to the video, he was requested to tie the food delivery to a rope before a customer ‘pulled it up’ to their apartment window

He called it “one of the craziest food deliveries” he’d ever had

According to Mothership, the customer looked like he was on the sixth floor of the apartment and used a pulley to collect the food.

In the tweet, Azhar explained that the customer had supposedly requested for this because he was grounded

And yes, he apparently did check that the food reached his customer safely.

Remaja buta akibat makan kentang goreng setiap hari

September 4, 2019 | News | No Comments

LONDON: Seorang remaja buta pada usia 17 tahun akibat kekurangan vitamin dalam diet makanannya selepas dia hanya memakan kentang goreng, kerepek kentang dan daging terproses.

Mail Online melaporkan, remaja berasal dari Bristol yang kini berusia 19 tahun itu sangat cerewet dengan makanan dan tidak pernah makan buah atau sayuran selama 10 tahun.

Makanan hariannya adalah kentang goreng, kerepek kentang, sosej yang digoreng dan sandwic ham.

Remaja itu yang terpaksa berhenti belajar di sebuah kolej didapati kekurangan beberapa vitamin utama termasuk B12, zat besi dan Vitamin D.

Dia perlahan-lahan hilang penglihatannya dalam tempoh tiga tahun, bermula pada usia 14 tahun, satu keadaan yang dikenali sebagai Neuropati optik Pemakanan (NON).

Remaja itu memiliki ketinggian dan berat badan yang normal tetapi kekurangan nutrisi menyebabkan kerosakan kekal pada saraf di belakang matanya menyebabkan dia buta.

Dalam satu wawancara dengan The Times remaja itu berkata, keadaan itu menyebabkan dia kini terasing.

“Semasa kecil saya suka keluar dan bermain bola sepak bersama kawan-kawan tetapi kini saya terlalu takut untuk keluar rumah,” katanya.

Announcing the promotion via Facebook, A&W even paid tribute to fellow fast food franchises KFC and McDonald’s by taking a leaf out of the latter’s playbook of embracing our local roots with the moniker “Endabyu” — a nod to McDonald’s Bukit Bintang outlet that was recently rechristened “Mekdi”.

The cute cartoon image shared online has A&W’s root bear mascot offering Colonel Sanders and Ronald McDonald some chilled glasses of root beer.

Available to dine-in customers, only while stocks last, on August 31, we’ve got to say, there’s no better way to usher in Merdeka than by slurping on an ice-cold root beer at your favourite “Endabyu” joint.

Ingin tidur lena? Makan ceri sejam sebelum tidur

August 22, 2019 | Food | No Comments

Apabila seharian menyiapkan tugasan, badan akan menjadi lemah dan ia lebih mudah untuk tidur dengan lebih lena.

Namun ada juga keadaan yang sukar melelapkan mata meskipun badan terasa lemah.

Terdapat beberapa makanan yang boleh membantu anda melelapkan mata dan membuatkan tidur anda lebih lena dan sempurna.

1. Produk kekacang soya

Kacang soya ialah sumber L-Tryptophan, sejenis asid amino yang menghasilkan neurotransmitter yang dinamakan serotonin.

Neurotransmitter ini kemudiannya membantu badan anda menghasilkan hormon melatonin apabila anda memerlukan tidur.

Walaupun hanya sedikit saja peratusan L-Tryptophan yang terlibat, ia masih memainkan peranan penting.

2. Pisang

Buah ini adalah sumber vitamin B6 yang diperlukan untuk menghasilkan melatonin.

Ia juga mengandungi magnesium dan kalsium yang membina semula otot ketika anda tidur.

3. Ceri

Buah ini juga mengandungi melatonin yang mengawal selia kitaran tidur anda.

Penyelidik yang pernah mengkaji kandungan melatonin dalam ceri menyarankan anda makan buah ini sejam sebelum tidur.

4. Beras jasmin

Kajian menunjukkan makanan dengan kandungan karbohidrat yang mudah dicerna boleh mengurangkan masa yang diambil untuk lena.

Makanan ini digelar sebagai makanan tinggi glisemik.

Beras jasmin mencapai skor 109 dalam indeks glisemik, lebih banyak daripada glukosa tulen.

For over 10 years, an octogenarian in Penang has managed to maintain the price of his wanton at 10 sen (S$0.03) each.

Gan Seng Lean, 83, who has been selling wanton mee since 1949, said he was keen to maintain the price of his wanton at 10 sen each and his wanton noodles at RM3 a plate.

“You cannot find any wanton seller who sells wanton at this price anymore, especially with the price hike in cooking essentials and groceries.

“But I am happy to maintain my wanton price at 10 sen each, as I only want to earn enough to support my wife and me,” he said when interviewed at his home in Jalan Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah yesterday.

Gan, who operates from a makeshift kitchen in his house compound, said he wanted to do something to pass time with his wife by selling wanton noodles.

“For my wife and I, we just want to do things to keep ourselves active.

“So we are not expecting a huge amount of customers or very good profits.

“We are happy as long as our customers are happy with the good and cheap food we are offering them,” he said.

Gan’s wife, Cheng Kooi Lan, 80, said she was hoping for both of them to retire but Gan wanted to continue as he loved making wanton noodles.

“I was initially reluctant to continue doing this, as we are both old and move very slow due to our bodily aches and joint pains.

“But Gan loves his work so much. It pains me to see him working so hard so I decided to support and help him in his passion,” she said.

Cheng said at times, their regular customers would make the noodles on their own and help wash the dishes after they finished their meals.

“Some of our regular customers visit so frequently that they know how to make the noodles.

“They would just come into our kitchen, toss the noodles and drain them on their own.

“After they finish eating, some would even wash their own plates as they want to help lighten our workload,” she said.

Student Yeoh Sue Yee, 18, and her three friends were among those who were seen helping themselves at Gan’s stall by packing the 45 wantons they bought.

“We just ate 10 wantons, and are now packing another 45 to bring back.

“I think it is right for us to help them as they are now old. We also do not mind the self-service.

“Besides, we do not know where else can we get 55 wantons for RM5.50,” quipped Yeoh.

Yeoh and her friends, Phuah Yi Wen, Tan Yao Jun and Tan Chin Qi, all 18, said they were happy to find the cheapest wanton noodles near Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, where they are studying.

“Now we can always visit for cheap and good wanton noodles,” said Yao Jun, adding that they only paid about RM17 for four bowls of wanton noodles and 55 wantons.

Gan operates his stall at his house at Jalan Lembah Permai from 10am to 10pm daily.

A married couple did not expect their decision to sell fritters and kuih at 10 sen each could change their life, freeing them from financial hardship.

Nurul Syafini Abd Manap, 35, with her husband, Mohd Hasmi Idris, 39, started selling various types of fritters and kuih in their stall at Jalan Keranji here two months ago.

“Before this, we never had enough money to pay the rent or even for our children’s school expenses as my husband worked as a shop assistant earning between RM30 and RM40 a day.

“But since my husband and I decided to sell fritters for 10 sen, Alhamdulillah, our livelihood has improved. 

“There is always money, maybe because of our charitable intentions towards customers, although our profits are not much,” she told Bernama here on Sunday (May 12).

“Every day my husband and I will open the stall at 4pm and at about 6pm, all the fritters and kuih like curry puffs, donuts, ‘onde-onde’, ‘kuih kacang’, ‘cucur badak’, spinach, ‘sosej gulung’, fried popiah, ‘cekodok pisang’, and ‘jemput-jemput jagung’ will be sold out within two hours,” said the mother of six.

Mohd Hasmi said he had earlier objected to his wife’s proposal to sell the fritters and kuih at 10 sen each for fear of not making a profit.

However, he added that he is now grateful as their sacrifice had paid off as there was a high demand.

Mohd Hasmi said they need to provide between 2,000 and 2,500 pieces daily for sales and customers’ orders.

A story like this shows what makes Malaysia such a wonderful place to live in.

A story like this shows what makes Malaysia such a wonderful place to live in.

A netizen named Nasx recently (7th May) shared how he broke fast on a ferry not with his own food, but with food distributed by two selfless non-Muslims. He subsequently shared this heartwarming story on Facebook, in a post which has melted many netizens’ hearts.

Based on the FB post, it is understood that the ferry was heading from Pulau Langkawi to Kuala Kedah but had to turn back due to some malfunctions.

“The passengers were asked to switch to another ferry and we don’t have food but water to break fast. Suddenly, a Chinese aunty opened up all her chocolates and distributed them to the Malays in the ferry because she said we have to eat as we were fasting. 

“Then, another Chinese man behind me gave me food from KFC. He said I have to eat because I was fasting. If I didn’t want the food, I can give it to others, he said. I just felt like crying,” he wrote. 

Nasx went on to praise the generous individuals and emphasised that racism is an individual act and has nothing to do with the race as a whole. Well said! 

This inspiring post was shared over 4,000 times and netizens gave their two cents in the comment section.

“We are of different races but ultimately, we’re all Malaysians. Mutual respect is the key for us to live harmoniously in this multi-racial country,” a netizen said.

“In every race, there will be black sheep which is why we shouldn’t judge a race based on an individual’s action. In fact, we shouldn’t judge others at all,” another social media user commented.

Eating rice may help prevent obesity, research suggests.

Experts found that people following a Japanese or Asian-style diet based on rice were less likely to be obese than those living in countries where rice consumption was low.

Researchers said low-carbohydrate diets “which limit rice” are a popular weight-loss strategy in developed countries but the effect of rice on obesity has been unclear.

They looked at rice consumption in terms of grams per day per person and calorie intake in 136 countries.

They also looked at data on body mass index (BMI).

In the United Kingdom, people were found to consume just 19g of rice a day, below dozens of other countries including Canada, Spain and the United States.

The researchers calculated that even a modest increase in rice consumption of 50g per day per person could reduce the worldwide prevalence of obesity by 1% (from 650 million adults to 643.5 million).

Prof Tomoko Imai, from Doshisha Women’s College of Liberal Arts, Kyoto, Japan, who led the research, said: “The observed associations suggest that the obesity rate is low in countries that eat rice as a staple food.

“Therefore, a Japanese food or an Asian-food-style diet based on rice may help prevent obesity.

“Given the rising levels of obesity worldwide, eating more rice should be recommended to protect against obesity even in Western countries.”

Giving possible reasons why rice can help, Prof Imai said rice was low fat, adding: “It’s possible that the fibre, nutrients and plant compounds found in whole grains may increase feelings of fullness and prevent overeating.”

The authors concluded: “The prevalence of obesity was significantly lower in the countries with higher rice supply even after controlling for lifestyle and socioeconomic indicators.”

Tam Fry, chairman of the National Obesity Forum, said: “We have known for centuries that Far Eastern populations tend to be slimmer than in the West because rice is a staple food, but few obesity specialists may have appreciated why.

“This novel research is the first to hypothesise that we could nail obesity by eating a modest amount more.”

The study was presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Glasgow.
