Hannah Foster and the 7 Dwarfs: An Original Malaysian Fairy Tale10:26 PM
On Monday and Tuesday I went to Cameron Highlands with a bunch of other exchange students. I'll make a more detailed post, but before that I'd like to tell you a story. (Note: this story is completely false, but I feel it portrays some of my favorite parts of Malaysian culture)
Once upon a time....
in a magical and strange land called Malaysia, there lived an American girl.One day, she was with other foreign people in a mystical place known as Cameron Highlands.
|The American had been turned into an Avatar with the help of her fellow foreigners and some strategically-placed butterfly flowers.|
|The day was not off to a good start! The poor American was grumpy because the mamak took a ridiculous 45 minutes to serve her nasi lemak and teh tarik.|
|She was so hungry that when she finally got her food she ate too fast and choked on the sambal so she had to go to the klinik.|
|Forytunately, the doctor was able to help her but the 4 different kinds of pills he prescribed made her a bit loopy. She even tried to eat with her left hand!|
|Eventually the medicine wore off, and the American was a bit embarrassed by her actions. She apologized to everyone and salam'ed them for good measure.|
|Everything worked out for the better-- later her host family even took her to the Pasar Malam. Jalan-jalan cari makan!|
|While walking through the pasar malam, she passed by an auntie selling spices and the curry was too much for her to handle.|
|Luckily, she was able to buy her satay anyways. After eating, the very tired American returned home to mandi and tidur. She lived happily ever after.|
