2017 was definitely the year of the nasi lemak, and who could forget the borderline war we had with our neighbours in Singapore that started it all?

First, it was the launch of McDonald’s Singapore’s nasi nemak burger, after which our very own MyBurgerLab retaliated with their own take on the classic dish.

Then, loads of other restaurants decided to hop on the bandwagon, and before you know it, there were nasi lemak burgers EVERYWHERE!

Even our very own Miss Universe Malaysia donned a nasi lemak dress for the National Costume segment!


4. Raja Bomoh and his coconuts

In light of Kim Jong-nam’s murder in February 2017, all eyes were on Malaysia as investigations went on amid rising tensions with North Korea.

Many Malaysians even feared the possibility of falling victim to a nuclear attack at one point! In efforts to protect us from an attack, Raja Bomoh Sedunia decided to perform a ritual involving coconuts, a pair of sticks, bamboo cannons, carpet, and a bowl of seawater.

Needless to say, a video of him throwing the coconuts into a river garnered a lot of amusement from Malaysians. Well, he definitely lightened the mood for many of us to say the least! 


5. Rude slipper-throwing lady

This year’s Ramadhan was definitely entertaining thanks to this woman!

Earlier this year, a woman shared her frustration on social media when a driver took over her parking spot. A video showed the driver and passenger of the other car getting out of the car and having a heated argument with the woman.

Then, one of them flashed their middle finger and even threw her slippers at their car as they drove away! Woah!

That moment has since been etched in everyone’s memories, so of course netizens had to turn her into a meme! She was Photoshopped in Fast and Furious movie posters, turned into the new Shell mineral water lady, and was even compared to Happy Polla! Tears of laughter all around in the office when we saw these hilarious memes!
