The Precise Way To Burn Calories After Eating These 10 Malaysian Dishes

Malaysians, we are #blessed to be living in a country that’s rich with so many scrumptious foods, thanks to our melting pot of races. Whatever you’re craving, just name it, we got it. Aside from being a hawker and mixed rice heaven, we are also famous for our world-renowned 24-hour ‘mamak’ eateries that offer an endless variety of roti canai-s.

Unfortunately, as much as we love eating our food, we’re pretty sure that most Malaysians are aware of how infamously fatty our yummy dishes can be. Did you know that a typical Malaysian breakfast which consists of nasi lemak accompanied with a hot cup of ‘teh tarik’ can add up to a total of 727 calories?

Thus, in order to help put things into perspective, we’ve done the math and calculated how long you’ll need to burn off your favorite Malaysian delights into various physical activities:
