Nasi Lemak 2.0 Movie Review + Snowflake


Went to Pavillion KL with on Last Friday with my collegemates. QT was over!! Plus I actually passed my Grade 8 Piano. Too happy edi, really wanted to just go out and relax and laugh all I want :D And yes we picked the perfect movie to do so!

Thanks to JiaChee who booked the tix! We don't have to go through those long queue over there...

There's still some time before the movie start, so we decided to go chillax at Snowflake
I heard many people talking about it but never really tried it before, so yea it's my first time there.
Basically it's a desert bar that sells Taiwanese Deserts and Drinks
We've heard a lot about Taiwan Bubble Tea, but Taiwan Taroballs? How about a desert where you can choose toppings of sweet potato, barley, black glutinous rice, green bean, red bean?
Sounds good?? Go have a try at Snowflake

Jiachee, Brandon, Russell, Daniel, Samuel, Andrew and Irene plus Maggie who joined us later.

The place is pretty small, but it was CROWDED! No empty seats, let alone have a table that has 8 seats for us. And basically every single one of the customers ordered at least one bowl, instead or sharing with others. So I guess it's too yummy to share with others LOL

So after grabbing a seat, we went to order. And I was puzzled when the cashier gave me this brown-color-round-thick-disc LOL I didn't know what it is, so I just take, go back and put it on our table.Then when it started beeping, I didn't notice and my friend somehow thought it was his and took it away. Then my friends started telling me how it works la, basically it's just an alarm to tell u when your food is ready. So Canggih right??? This one is definitely better than calling numbers. There's no way anyone can steal your food unless u gave the disc thing away.

Beeping UFO

Milky Red Bean Ice -- RM5.50
All I know this is equivalent to Ice Kacang Merah aka 红豆冰
Though this Ice Kacang is abit more expensive than usual. 
bUT it taste good!! I'm not a big fan of red beans but somehow, the red bean taste awesome weih. It's really sweet and soft but also abit crunchy at the same time. And when you eat the beans with some Shaved Ice...My goodness it taste awesome!!

What others ordered :
(Left) Taroballs with Sweet Potato, Barley and Pearl Toppings -- RM6.50
(Right) Lemon Jade Jelly Ice -- RM5.50
Taroball is like their specialty, so I guess it's a MUST TRY. 
and by judging on how fast the guys munched down these yummy toppings... (look below)
I guess it, really, is, DELICIOUS.

This is like less than 5 minutes after they started eating....

I know it's so yummy that you wanna finish every single trace of it, but don't eat the spoon plz... LOL

Snowflake has other outlets
go to their website to see the list
So after Snowflake session, time to taste some COCONUT RICE, NO I MEAN NASI LEMAK!! XD

My View:
Laugh till I die mannnn!!!
It's funny not because it's funny, it's funny because of how LOCAL this show is LOL...
It's just so good to see a movie that really tells the story and characters and also the unique colors of our country! Well for me, the story is just okay la. Basically the spotlight of the movie is not on the story, but the characters, the chemistry between them, the local culture and also the creative elements that incorporates different elements from different races of the nation. Through the characters and the special culture they have, the movie emphasize on how to create a nation in harmony and also how to live a happy life with the people around you. And of course, Namewee showed off his unique music talents by writing songs with meaningful yet straight-to-the-point lyrics, and also gave English song and Indian song a Chinese Twist LOL!!! The Bollywood style Mandarin song was EPIC!!! This simply tells you it is possible to mix different things and create harmony!! After watching this film, you will start to think that Malaysia is really an awesome country.  

Then of course, non-stop laughter!
Basically all the characters are already funny. It's Adibah Noor and Afdlin Shauki mannn, don't expect any thing but funny!! And like i said just now, the unique mix of songs just makes you laugh and feel impressed at the same time! Then there's this Kenny and Chee who act as the Baba and Nyonya. According to my dad, they were really really popular back then. And now I know why. The way they speak is just so natural and cute and you can't help but to laugh at how "harmonized" when they speak. Then it was really funny when they disguised as ghosts to scare Namewee and KarenKong. Plus the way they speak, BM + Hokkien + etc etc...It's just impressive and i really love them. Then there's also funny scenes of Namewee having stupid-funny day dreams, especially the one about Cheng Ho. Plus erm, a bit of funny P***tical insults. In short, there's no Not-Laughing moment when you watch the film. 

and erm one very special thing that you can only find in this film, is the Malaysian-Style Rojak Language, Malaysia-Chainiss punya "broken english" and also the Malaysia Local CHAINISS mandarin, with all the hokkien, hakka, hainam dialect plus all the phrases like WALAO, SONG-AH, WAHBIANG, and also HAO-LIAN (SHOW-OFF) lol!! My dad always say I like to HAO-LIAN and I always asked where on earth this word came from and wondered if it really exist. I'm so glad to hear that word in the movie LOL!!

Well, the main point of the story is to realize how awesome the people of our country is. And learn to appreciate and also live in harmony. 
This is a show that all Malaysians should watch!
1 Malaysia!!! XD

Rating : 7/10
