Ouch! Another Record - The Longest Yee Sang!

We have another record to talk about - the longest yee sang! We achieved this Saturday last at the Mydin hypermarket in Malacca.

Sunday Star 5 February 2012 

At 880m long, it was the longest yee sang ever prepared in Malaysia. I don't know whether this is a world record.

 It might very well be.

Who would bother with wanting to have such a dubious honour as having the longest yee sang in the world?

Only Malaysia lah! We are after all, "Boleh Land" or "Can Do Land", in Manglish.

We also boast of having had the longest ketupat, the largest mooncake or whatever have you.

So much effort, time and money have been wasted trying to break one record after another. All so rubbishy ones.

And we are supposed to be proud of our gung ho spirit - the spirit of Malaysia Boleh that former PM TDMM hoisted on us unsuspecting plebeians.

Would that we spent more time, energy and effort in ensuring that Malaysia is the least corrupt country in the world, the richest and the safest place in the world to live in.

Ah, that would be a record to be proud of. Instead, all we care for is the frivolous and flippant and easily achievable that nobody else would bother about.

Ouch, no more records okay?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
