Chef Huang was having difficulties keeping his restaurant opened due to the lack of customers. although he failed to prepare a dish that attracts customers, he was actually considered Hero Huang in the neighborhood. he often helped everyone who came asking for favors, no matter how insignificant it is. his biggest rival was a Malay lady that sold Nasi Lemak right across the street from his restaurant. when his restaurant was closed down due to the unpaid rental, he finally seek the Malay lady for help. she sent him on a journey, in search of experience n himself.
according to Namewee (Wee Meng Chee), Nasi Lemak 2.0 was his gift to Malaysia in conjunction with the National Day celebration. failed to request for any support financially from the government, they were stuck with barely 1 million, which make it even tougher to finish making the movie. after 2 years of hard work, the movie was finally released on the big screen earlier September 2011. the movie included languages, such as mandarin, multiple chinese dialects, bahasa malaysia, english n tamil. after many confrontations, the movie was finally admitted to be an 1Malaysia film. obviously the film wasn't one of those which would be rated highly of. like most young Malaysians, we knew Namewee from his effort to voice out thus far. we went to the cinema solely to support. basically, i enjoyed the film. it made use of some vulgar that we are familiar with, putting it into something so natural that one has to know it to notice it. i am no huge fan of such language, but the film does portrayed many truth of the people of Malaysia, such as introducing the people, the races, even going in depths by including the dialects while creating humor along the way. in overall, it was a fun film to watch if weren't judged too strictly.
