News: Singapore McDonald's Nasi Lemak Burger vs Malaysia's Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger


Singapore McDonald’s Nasi Lemak Burger was launched on Jul 13 as part of a limited-time menu to celebrate Singapore’s birthday. The burger, as well as other items such as the Chendol McFlurry, sold out islandwide less than two weeks later.


Malaysia myBurgerLab's Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger is to take on Singapore McDonald's nasi lemak burger.

Speaking to Channel NewsAsia, myBurgerLab explained: "(The Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang Burger) is for our National Day (on Aug 31) and also as a response to everyone who tagged us and requested for this burger to be made, because Malaysia's McDonald's didn't have it."

Why I walk 2 miles to the store instead of driving


Anyone who knows me knows that I love to walk nearly everywhere I go. It’s my preferred method of transportation by far. Whenever I have errands that are five or less miles away, I walk whenever I can. When I was in school I walked to and from classes — about six miles each way from my apartment — and it was a great deal of fun.

I also walk my son to and from daycare and school whenever the weather permits. His school is about half a mile from home, and his daycare is a just a few blocks down the road. So, walking him back and forth gives us both some wonderful walking time together each and every day. I cherish these walks; they’re much more fun than driving the short distance to daycare and school. Plus, I hope that doing this gives my son a lifelong love of walking, so we can do it together for many years to come.

The research is quite clear on this: if you make brisk walking a regular part of your day, you’ll very likely enjoy better health in a multitude of ways. This has definitely been true for me, so I keep on walking!

My 2 cents:
Walking not only helps you physically, but mentally too, like:
  • It clears your head with fresh air so you can think better. 
  • You can smell the trees and flowers, making you forget about your depression or unhappiness. 
  • You see other people and new places when you walk that may give you inspirations or new ideas for your work or project.
  • You feel free when you walk, and appreciate life.
  • People always say they have no time to bond with their love ones. Walking to anywhere with your love ones is one way of bonding.
