Malaysian-Style Reality Show

In line with the reality shows craze on TV these days (as opposed to fake or make-believe TV that we’ve been watching all this while), I’m compiling a list of things that might feature if Malaysia were to make our own show. For ease of thought, I’ve broken down the listing into 3 groups:

Do Physical/Frustrating challenge: Like Amazing Race’s Roadblock. Designed to test the contestants physical & mental strength to the limit.

Eat Disgusting Stuff: Like on Fear Factor and MTV’s I Bet You Will every week.

Do Scary Thing: Like on Fear Factor also. Fight crocodile, stay underwater, play with scorpions, the usual thing.

OK, this is what I’ve come up with so far:

Physical / Frustrating Challenge:

  • Scale rock face in Sarawak and collect bird’s nest with bare hands.
  • Stand in line at 7am and renew passport or make myKad at the government department. On a non-working Saturday!
  • Board the LRT at KLCC station at 5.30pm on Friday. And carrying heavy luggage.
  • Collect RM100 in donation money by going house-to-house in Damansara Heights or Bukit Bandaraya.

Eat Disgusting Stuff:

  • Drink down one jug of the infamous SS2 Coke susu (Coca-Cola mixed with obscene amount of condensed milk).
  • Durian milkshake mixed with bat guano.
  • 1 large tray of mamak maggi mee goreng, cooked with VERY generous servings of oil…

Do Scary Thing:

  • Run the convenience store at Bukit Bintang during Chinese New Year period, right in the middle up the Bangladeshi/Indonesian/Pakistani/Burmese/Thai workers get-together.
  • Cross Jalan Tun Razak on foot at peak hour traffic in 7 seconds or less. No second chance.
  • Go for dental check-up.

Your suggestions are most welcome.


  • fear factor Malaysian style pleaseeeeeee!!!Cant stand it!! Although they did it sometime ago(remember seeing something on tv like eating bugs n stuff in 1U) ....sigh...cant believe that Malaysian's can stoop so low. Remember when grandma use to say things like "Ang mo chiak sai, you also chiak sai meh??"=(Westerners eat shit you also eat shit).........well, seems to be turning into reality with these reality tv stuff...
