Did an inventory of stuff I had in my kitchen closet. Pastes/spices from home.
Some of them years old. Uh-oh. Which led to this conversation with my housemate:
TK: "Wei, wanna eat 6-month-expired food for dinner or 7-month?" (Ayam kurma or ketupat with satay sauce?)
TS: "Aiyeh anything lar. Hungry lar."
TK: "7-month it is, then."
12 hours later we're still ok. I guess what they say is true; Malaysians have the strongest stomachs and can eat anything.
