Malaysian homes probably have something like that but I never came across one till I came to the US.
What am I talking about?
You know those weird things in the sink, those that you can find at insinkerator, where you can throw any food waste inside, turn on the switch, and voila! The knife inside will cut up everything and dispose it into the trash!
Super cool I tell you. Never came across one before at all when I was in Malaysia. Haha... I know I know.. Malaysia is not that backwards but I did come from a not so rich family so..
