0-5 points: asian food hater. pizza, burger & cheddar cheese is your true heart??s delight.
6-10 points: guy loh lost in KLCC. you??ll eat the identifiable bits with the funny names on the air con restaurant picture menu.
11-15 points: ex pat from bangsar. roti canai is your favorite but you still can??t digest chicken rice, and you still think that curry comes from a special indian tree.
16-20 points: malaysian connoisseur. you eat everything, everything that contains spices, that is. with rice, la.
21-24 points: uber malaysian. you probably have nasi lemak for breakfast and assam laksa for dinner. you accept only gardenia as bread and sleep with your head on a durian.
25 points: shame on you! you are cheating! there is only 24 points!

      Are all these packages and jars supposed to alleviate the craving for traditional home made food ?? ;)
      Ok, ok, ...I was just asking.
      So where are you situated on that ladder ?
      Let me guess: between 0 and 24 ;)...or rather 25 ?? ! :)
      ( I have to admit that I'm a shameless 6-10 )
