“Growing up, my besties and I would take turns sleeping over at each other's houses. Before we go over to whoever’s house we’re staying at, we’d all go to a convenience store together and buy a bunch of snacks to pig out on at ngam ngammmm midnight. 'Cause midnight snack, you know? Hehehe.
"And Mamee Monster was one of our must-haves! Specifically the chicken flavour, that was our fave.”

"I grew up overseas and would come back to Malaysia once every two years for holiday. Every time we came back, we'd stay at my grandparents' house. And all my aunts and uncles and cousins would stay over too.
"It wasn't a big house. Us kids slept on mattresses on the living room floor. And we'd always walk to the kedai runcit to buy Mamee Monster. Because it was the best snack! We'd eat it and play with the lil toys on the mattresses on the living room floor."
