Nasi Lemak 2.0 Movie in the Year 2011

Nasi lemak has become a controversial topic ever since it was declared a super high calorie food being over-consumed by regular Malaysians. Yes it is true. It is all plain white rice (high caloric refined and processed carbohydrates) and cooked in coconut milk - and usually with the economic uncertainty plus greediness of vendors, the rice portion has increased by 20%, and the other ingredients such as egg, being watered-down literally with more water or added flour before frying and flattening the egg so much and cut so thin, it could melt in your mouth - that tiny 2cm morsel of the last dignifying piece of protein in this commoner's meal.

During my school days, my mother would wake up 6am to buy the 20 sen nasi lemak along with a 10 sen piece of karipap. The banana leaf wrapped nasi lemak DOES NOT have any tiny 2 cm piece of fried egg omelette. Instead it comes "kosong" or plain, with smack of delicious home-cooked fragrant flavoured "sambal on a 3cm x 3cm mini piece of cut-out banana leaf WITHIN the pyramid-shaped banana leaf package.

That 10 sen karipap or curry puff - was transformed - from a famous quote by - just draw freely upon your imagination - and it was my piece of "chicken". Yum. Some of the mornings, my mom will make a little soft boiled egg to go with this breakfast combo meal.

Now there is this feature film by the infamous notorious bad rapper boy of Muar - titled Nasi Lemak 2.0. This has got to be a very powerful message to all and sundry in Malaysia and cyberspace. Web 2.0 has shaped the last century of computing (means the last 7 years of human life - because computer years are similar to dog years). This clever far-sighted title is ingenious.

Nasi Lemak 2.0 The Movie Synopsis:
Young Chef Huang (Namewee) struggles to get his restaurant business going because he cannot adapt to the ‘localized’ cooking his patrons are looking for. However, contradict to his unpopular cuisine, he is also well-known as ‘Hero Huang’ in the local neighborhood where he carries out good deed in helping the community until he met Xiao K (Karen Kong) who got him into deep trouble. In order to get his life and the restaurant business back on track, Chef Huang must now seek help from a mysterious hawker stall lady (Adibah Noor), who summons him to embark on the extraordinary journey of his life. During this self-enlightening experience, he will also meet many ’local heroes’ each lending their support to help him re-discover his roots and the real hidden message of ‘Nasi Lemak’.

Watch it.
