“Ever since I started traveling overseas for towerrunning competition, I brought many of my childhood snacks and gave it to my rivals yet friends from other countries.”

His snack swap started a trend, with athletes from other countries bringing their own treats to share.

This system of barter not only allows Wai Ching to savour snacks from around the world, but it also fosters a sense of community among athletes.

Many Malaysians also joined in online, sharing their favorite snacks in the comments.
