How many types of fried rice dishes are there in the world?

I was looking at a restaurant menu that had Malasian fried rice on the menu. For some reason, you have to order it a day in advance because it is labor-intensive to make.

Googling on the web, I really didn't find any recipe to support that. I did stumble on the wiki article about fried rice. I didn't realize there were so many variations
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fried_rice

- Arroz Frito (Cuban)
- Bai cha, a Khmer variation
- Canton (or Mui Fan)
- Cha Han
- Chaufa (Peru)
- Chaulafan (Ecuador)
- Curry fried rice
- Fujian
- Hawaiian fried rice
- Kimchi bokkeumbap or kimchi fried rice (Korean)
- Nasi goreng (Malay and Indonesian)
- Omurice (Japan)
- Sinangag or Garlic Fried Rice (Filipino)
- Singaporean
- Thai
- Yangzhou
- Yuan yang

I guess I wasn't paying close attention to fried rice. Any other types?
