But when diapers become mascots, they seem to have fun.
Watch Mamy Poko dance:
No, I don't think he's humping. He's just doing the MC Hammer.
I wonder how the kids would react when they see Mamy Poko move like that. Maybe it'll scare the sh*t out of them. Maybe that's the whole point. It'll sell more diapers.

For RM4, a heavy mug of hot Vico sounded nice, so I ordered that.
Yeah baby! Time for snack attack. This reminded me of the exact same thing I could get in KL at 1901 franchise restaurants.
Except there's something amiss here. See the red arrow? There's just too much empty space. It reminded me of the big puffy bag of chips that I always buy. When you open them up, it's just full of air.
And this thing cost me 7 bucks. But as you can see, it didn't look like 7 bucks.
It looked like it was soaked in water for 2 days.
Anyway, the thing came with packets of Mayo, Heinz ketchup & pickles.
And there were step-by-step instructions as well.
It was pretty easy. 4 steps & I was ready to go.
Despite the fact that it didn't look like anything in the picture, it was still good!
And that's how Tony Fernandez makes his money. He makes money off the empty space between the hotdogs & the box, & between the mug & the styrofoam cup. So now you know.
Prologue: I went to check out the 1901 store at Megamall. This was what the actual one looked like. For almost the same price, it came with a drink.
I don't have to say much here. The pictures speak for themselves.

If you go too hard at it, they go TWANG. And boy, they drain batteries like drinking water.
This is the father of all foam cutters.
Unlike the battery-operated ones, this one comes with a power plug.
The wires run out from the power box below.
When everything was set, I tried cutting a small piece of foam with it.
It worked. The foam turned into cotton candy when it touched the wire.
You can actually see the foam melting before your very eyes.
Like this baru got real power.
It's very addictive. You could spend hours just cutting foam for no reason at all.
And it was hard to stop, just like when we're squeezing bubble wraps.
Somehow there's this therapeutic feeling attached to squeezing things. Hmm...
The good thing about this cutter is that you can always replace the wire with guitar strings.
The packaging tends to remind me of something else...
Anyway, use the smallest ones. And it costs only RM1.50.
Since I'm musically challenged, this is the closest I'll ever get to buying a musical instrument.
After getting bored with the senseless cutting, I decided to go for the real deal.
It took me two hours to make this:
Yerdayyy! You believe meh?
