Dari Hati: 9 things you didn’t know about Uncle Dyy
Have you ever wondered what your favourite Facebook Creator’s strange habits or top local dishes are? In this series of interviews, we sat down with the stars of Dari Hati, an eGGs-clusive special documentary programme, to ask them a few lighthearted questions that were too amusing for the show!
For those of you who follow the GTA V roleplaying scene in Malaysia, Uncle Dyy will be no stranger to you, but for those who don’t – the 28-year-old streamer found success streaming his adventures in the city of Los Santos (and later on “Kuala Lumpur”). Even though he plays a multitude of games on his streams, one thing remains consistent – his sense of humour and cheery personality. Let’s dive into his mind to find out what makes him tick.
If you could compare yourself to any animal, which would it be and why?
Monkey, I guess. Because monkeys can go anywhere by foot or by hand, they can go anywhere - similar to me, I like travelling all over the place.
What are your top 3 local foods?
Ikan bakar (grilled fish), asam pedas (sour and spicy fish stew), and putu piring (steamed palm sugar rice cake).
What’s the most controversial thing you can say that won’t get you in trouble?
I don’t think I have any controversial statements because I am okay with everything.
If you could only pick one video game to play for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?
Honestly, I wouldn’t pick only one game to play for the rest of my life, but if I had to pick one game, it would be a horror game. Any kind of horror game. I like jumpscares.
What hobbies do you like doing that relaxes or destress you?
Before I became a full-time streamer, I used to play rugby, but since I can’t do that anymore, I would spend my time listening to music or playing Dota.
What’s one funny/interesting habit/fact about yourself that no one else knows about you?
I like observing people, to see how different people behave in public spaces.
Are you a cat, dog or other pets person?
I love cats!
What other skills do you have that other people don’t know about?
Well, my skills, I think I’m good at talking. Anybody that I meet, I can easily get along with!
What are your worst habits?
Sleeping all day - that’s the worst habit I have.
