About The Ricecooker

Shop Front

THE RICECOOKER SHOP

We used to run a physical store from 2007 to 2012. First we set up at the Annexe, Central Market right in the middle of KL for a couple of years, then we moved to Jalan Berangan, near Changkat Bukit Bintang and finally to the basement of Cahaya Suria building near Puduraya, KL.

But that’s history now. The Ricecooker Shop was permanently shut down when Joe traveled for more than a year visiting regional friends as he researched for his academic paper and book. If there’s anything we’re selling, it would only be done through this website or via our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thericecookershop/). So yeah, we don’t have a store nowadays but we suggest you go and visit our friends listed below.

THE RICECOOKER SHOP’S CORPORATE ANTHEM

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life | Monty Python
words and music by Eric Idle

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…

And…always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the light side of life…

If life seems jolly rotten
There’s something you’ve forgotten
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you’re feeling in the dumps
Don’t be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle – that’s the thing.

And…always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the light side of life…

For life is quite absurd
And death’s the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin – give the audience a grin
Enjoy it – it’s your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life’s a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true.
You’ll see it’s all a show
Keep ’em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the right side of life…
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the bright side of life…
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life…
(I mean – what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing – you’re going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life…
(ad lib..)
