    There is an amazing array of beverages like bean curd, barley, starfruit and of course, soy milk. They serve them in baggies, tied with a staw coming out the top. Beware: soy milk is very fattening!

    to DAO. about the 'greetings' thing in malaysiaa~ u'r wrong, there is a word to describe 'very' in malay languange (bahasa Malaysia) the word 'very' in malay is called sangat. very=sangat. Thank You Very Much is mean 'terima kasih sangat-sangat' or 'terima kasih banyak-banyak' in malay language. they didn't say 'sama-sama' as a way of saying thank you very much. noted it right. 'sama-sama' means u are welcome. 'sama' means same. must refer to the dictionary before u post something that would effect my country languange. think, search, refer, before u post/talk something.

    ~ hope this would helps your bahasa Malaysia. bahasa is language. sincerely from me, aina. malaysian~ ^^
