Instagram stories first introduced face filters in May 2018 and I've been abusing the feature ever since

Since then, Instagram has raised their game and now anyone can create and upload their own face filters using Spark AR Studio.

Here's a list of super fun face filters by Malaysian and Indonesian creators that you HAVE to try out:

1. Turn yourself into a walking RM1 note with this filter by @khalladli

Now, if only I could change my selfies into actual money. Try it out for yourself by going onto his Instagram profile here. 

2. Live your newscaster dreams with 'Berita Utama' by @alhakimchai

It even comes with the breaking news music in the background.

3. Embrace patriotic vibes with the Jalur Gemilang on your face

This filter is also by @alhakimchai, and here's our senior content specialist showing you how you can use it. He isn't even Malaysian, but he wishes he was.

4. Be the mata in this telur mata

If you absolutely love eggs, you'll absolutely love this filter by @mas.bruh.

5. Unlike the real thing, this box of contraband cigarettes won't affect your health

This filter by @driyanata is inspired by the infamous 'Gudang Garam' cigarettes (which are illegal in Malaysia, btw).

6. You can also become a floating satay stick, if that's your thing

As you can see, we couldn't hold back our laughter.

Who even comes up with these things? Well, @mas.bruh did.

7. Wear a bowl of noodles on your head with this filter by @dixxieland

You can now wear the chicken bowl we all know and love as a hat, thanks to @dixxieland.

8. Last but not least, you can also put your face on an Indomie packet

Another gem by @mas.bruh that we just had to include in the list. It's too funny!
