Check out the video below! There’s a video introduction to the New Malaysian banknotes too! Lolz.
An uncanny bak kwa superhero (Weng Heong) has burst into the social media scene, leaving almost half a million Internet viewers agape with the made-in-Malaysia cartoon hero.
It’s a really awesome YouTube video that I have seen and it required interaction from the viewers, which requires viewers to click the pause and mute buttons and rewind the video to assist Yok Man 肉问 in winning his fight.
1930′s, on the eve of World War II, the Japanese Empire was eyeing the Malaysian food industry. In order to destroy the anti-Japanese forces in Kuala Lumpur, the Japanese have sent spies for infiltrating missions. The young Yok Man has been implicated by the incident…
Below is the 1st episode of the Yok Man which uploaded early of the year!
KUALA LUMPUR: An uncanny bak kwa superhero has burst into the social media scene, leaving almost half a million Internet viewers agape with the made-in-Malaysia cartoon hero.
The Rice of Yok Man (loosely translated as “the rise of meat man”) is a four-minute video about flat-faced Yok Man, whose character was inspired by the dried sliced meat (known as bak kwa) taking the form of famous Wing Chun martial arts master Ip Man.
Bak kwa is a traditional delicacy enjoyed by the Chinese community, particularly during the Chinese New Year.
“We put up the video on Facebook on Tuesday and by mid-Friday, it had already recorded 444,485 views.
“At last count, there were over 195,000 Facebook likes for the video and about 200 tweets containing positive comments on the video circulated by audiences from many countries, who were all fascinated by the concept,” said PCT Innovations director Wilson Pee, whose online advertising agency was responsible for the production of Yok Man.
The story is set against a hypothetical backdrop of World War II, with the Japanese portrayed as having the desire to conquer the Malaysian food industry.
A food war ensues between the Japanese warlords (who take the form of a sushi and a tempura) and the Malaysian camp , represented by Yok Man and his martial arts compatriots, the egg-head named Double-Yolk Egg and the feminine Seremban Siew Bao.
Witty lines in the Cantonese dialect lace the interactive video, which requires viewers to click the pause and mute buttons to assist Yok Man in winning his fight.
The video with English and Chinese subtitles was created as a publicity gimmick for a local dried meat company.
“Response to the video was massive.
“Our business has picked up since the video went online,” Wing Heong Food Industries Sdn Bhd managing director Yap Sooi Cheng said. Pee said Yok Man was produced completely by its creative team all Malaysians aged below 25.
“Creativity abounds in the young people and they can do marvellous things, whether or not they are certified,” Pee quipped, referring to the proposed Computing Professionals Bill which came under fire from information technology professionals recently.
Under the Bill, the Government would set up a board to oversee the registration of computing practitioners, computing professionals, sole proprietorships, partnerships and corpo rate bodies providing computing services.

Exercise Often! Do it now!
It is unavoidable. Physical activity is essential to healthy living. The body was meant to move, and when it does not, it can become unhappy and ill. Physical activity stimulates the body’s natural maintenance and repair systems that keep it going.
It improves blood circulation to our heart and lungs. It gives us strength to stave off injuries, and it increases the mobility in our muscles and joints. Physical activity also releases endorphins; the feel good hormones that create a sense of general well being. Physical activity is good for the body and the mind.

Exercises include brisk walking, cycling, dancing, swimming, rowing, elliptical workouts and jogging. Yoga, and pilates are also good exercise workouts. So do plan your exercise!
Have you ever heard of the saying “you are what you eat” or “garbage in garbage out”? Well, it is true. What you put into your body directly affects how you feel physically, your mood, your mental clarity, your internal workings, and even your skin.
Eating healthy does not mean eating expensive foods with little taste. As a matter of fact, there are some fantastic health recipes online and in cookbooks that are very healthy. Basically, you want to aim for a diet that is low in salt, fat and unprocessed foods and is high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids. It is also good to take a multi vitamin to ensure you are meeting your nutrient requirements.
A food guide pyramid is a triangular or pyramid-shaped nutrition guide divided into sections to show the recommended intake for each food group. Eat more Fruits and Vegetables. Less Oily and Fat food! That’s the healthy diet!
Use the food pyramid as a guide to how much of what to eat. Eat less processed foods and reduce your sugar intake.
- Regulate your portion sizes (a portion is about the size of your fist)
- Eat a lot of fresh locally produced vegetables and fruits
- Reduce the amount of meat you eat.
Don’t Stress yourself too much!
We have got to get rid of all of this stress. Stress happens when your life becomes out of balance physically, mentally or emotionally. This imbalance can be caused by internal stress like worrying too much, environmental stress like pressure from work, family or friends, or by stress from being fatigued or overworked. Being stressed out has the potential to affect your health in a variety of ways.
You can become tired, sick, tense, irritable, and unable to think clearly. If you want to live a healthy lifestyle, you will need to manage the stress in your life so that it does not overtake you. This means taking charge of your thoughts, emotions, tasks, and environment to get your body back in balance.
Do laugh as often as you can and if you are stress try to talk to your friends and let your friend help you on something that might be able to solved easily!
So, even if you opt for small changes and a more modest weight loss, you can see the benefits are still pretty good. Start living healthy from today and you will see the different on yourself!
You can do it!
