ROI on Teka Oven

What you see in the photo is two delicious 9" pizza baking in the oven. Mrs World is cooking a pork pepperoni pizza and a BBQ ham pizza.

I believe it is not about being backwards or not. And it's not about being cruel either. Generally, Malaysians are good people. Honest! Sadly, events in the recent 5 years have changed people's perception. The streets are not as safe anymore.
