I saw this on the flight to Malaysia on AirAsia X. The deeeeee-licious combo dinner that includes a Kit Kat chocolate bar and Ribena RTD candy fruit bar.... I don't know about you, but candy bars on a combo tray seem a bit.... Exotic?

What's this doing here? Well, OK. I want to make an observation. In Indian society, being skinny is a sign of being poor. That's why all wealthy Indian people are grossly overweight. The average life expectancy for Indian males is 64.1 years. That's a whopping 14 + years less than the obese and overweight Americans.... Yet, still, old habits die hard. The sign of wealth in India is being over weight. That's why you will see couples like this. I took this photo of their wedding photo and was shocked when I saw them in person. A nice couple for sure, but this guy looked to be just about 24 or so and this picture craftily hides his triple chin.... Well, I guess she's happy... She gets his money when he kicks the bucket waay too early. I wonder when Indian society will change, if ever, and the wealthy realize that living long, slim and healthy is happier!
The world famous Penang Sea-cucumber soap. Yep. Made from real sea-cucumbers! Mmmmm- good!
I was a good boy and didn't go here even once when on vacation.

The next day, we went to the big chain grocery market to see how suburbanites in Malaysia live!
Just like K-mart!
This place had everything! Chicken wings. Chicken legs... Chicken feet!????
Yep. Even in Malaysia!
