We’re familiar with weird food combinations that turned out to be surprisingly delicious, such as ice cream + fries, durian + rice, and Maggi + murtabak. But other than food, did you know that there are many more everyday items that go unexpectedly well together? Keep on reading to find out what things most Malaysians don’t realize they can mix and match!
Play around with your wardrobe and trust us, you’ll be surprised by how well some pieces of clothing go together. There are a lot of ways to discover an unexpected match, don’t be afraid to:
- Pair oversized pullovers with workout leggings
- Combine different prints like striped tops with checkered pants
- Complement a monochrome outfit with colourful accessories
- Swap & match different coloured or patterned shoelaces
Besides, instead of purchasing new clothes, opting for pre-loved apparel from thrift stores can also be a better option. Other than saving more money, you’ll also get to preserve mother nature by reducing waste!
Where to buy:
Price: RM10-RM20 per piece
2. Mobile gaming controllers
Gamers, if your fingers and wrists hurt after playing for a few rounds, consider getting yourselves some mobile gaming controllers! This is to ensure that your gaming positions are more ergonomic, thus preventing the Gamer’s Thumb or Wrist.
These gaming controllers come in different features and functions, which you can mix and match to suit your gaming needs. Into Mobile Legends? Get a controller with joysticks! For first-person or third-person shooter games, be sure to get a shooter controller instead. And if your smartphone tends to overheat, you can also pair your gaming controllers with a mobile cooling fan!
Where to buy: Shopee
Price: RM5 – RM14
Do you know that you can also customize your keyboard to make it unique and your very own? While most keycaps are sold in sets of varying themes, you can always look for individual keycaps of different colours, switches, textures, or fonts.
Consider choosing complementary colour combos (i.e. orange + blue, purple + yellow) to make some keys stand out. You can also experiment with different cartoon illustrations to create a consistent theme (check out the spooky Halloween-themed keyboard below)!
4. Coffee/tea with different types of milk
Contrary to popular belief, the quality of coffee beans or tea leaves is not the only determining factor of good coffee or tea—the type of milk matters too! Whole milk, skim milk, and dairy-free milk give varying textures and tastes to our coffee.
If you’re eager to mix and match your drink with different types of milk, we highly recommend pairing it with:
- Coconut milk: sweet and rich flavour
- Oat milk: thick and creamy texture with a nice foam
- Almond milk: enhances the flavour profile
Where to buy: Lazada
Price: RM14 – RM20 per carton (will vary depending on the brand and type of milk you choose)
5. Mobile plan
Most mobile plans come in a package that consists of fixed internet quotas, call options, additional hotspot and other services. However, we don’t always use all the services our mobile plans offer. I mean, we don’t really need free SMS, when we frequently use social media apps for messaging and calls, right?
Mixing and matching the items in your mobile plan does not only save you more money but also provides you with the flexibility to customize your mobile plan on demand based on your lifestyle and preferences. And don’t you worry, there are no extra charges to customize your mobile plan. In fact, customizable mobile plans can be highly affordable!
