So That's What Happened
For those who do not read the newspapers, this weekly news summary brings you up to speed on what you need to know and more light hearted stories to bring up during your mamak sessions.
No Cheaper Water
There used to be a time where water used to cost RM0.40 when you order. Even then, people were complaining that water shouldn’t be charged. Try now where many eating joints in Klang Valley are charging customers up RM1.50 – for a cup of H20.
Thankfully, a cup of Teh O Ais is still about RM 1.30. Why pay for expensive water when you can drink other beverages for a cheaper price? Otherwise, if you feel that it is really unfair to be charging so much for just a drink. There’s only one way out – bring your own bottle of water.

Bank Robbers Stole RM20
It was reported that two thieves broke into a bank at Kota Kinabalu and ransacked three floors of the building escaped with only RM20 in coins. Two suspects have already been arrested in connection with this case.
Why go through all that trouble to steal? It’s only RM 20. Bet you can make more with a part time job instead of stealing it. It’s not worth it.

Teenager Collapses after eating Chicken Nuggets for 15 Years
Yep you read it right. British teenager, Stacy Irvine, 17, collapsed and was rushed to the hospital due to her diet of eating primarily chicken nuggets for the past 15 years. Other than that, she would occasionally be supplemented with a piece of toast or a bag of chips. Her family and doctors have urged her to change her diet but she has refused to do so.
I know chicken nuggets are tasty but eating them your whole life??? I would have puked if I had to eat the same thing every day for a week. She doesn’t know what she is missing.
