Hannah Foster and the 7 Dwarfs: An Original Malaysian Fairy Tale

10:26 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.
