One of Lewis the Lion’s favourite set of table facts are his five times tables so he was really happy to arrive in Malaysia and discover that to convert pounds to the Malaysian currency -Malaysian Ringgits, he simply had to multiply by five! What a great magic trick!
E.g. £1 equals approximately 5 ringgits.
So, if Lewis the Lion wanted to know how much money he was spending, he simply needed to divide the total by 5.
For example, his favourite fruits pancake at Kak Long Corner Café cost 4.00 ringgits so divided by 5, that would be approximately 80 pence.
Here are some photos of the menu in the Kak Long Corner Café.
