The majority voted for "Pick yr fave food fm a diff ethnic. Write in detail & explain why & how it became yr fave."
I read and reread this line, gosh... like so lame haha... yeah too easy as a challenge, so I decided to souped it up. So read on if you're interested to participate. Would appreciate if you could get fellow bloggers to take part as well. They need not be a food blogger since there will be options for those who don't cook as well as for those who are staying overseas.
Pick your favourite dish of a different ethnic from yours but this dish has to be something original and not fusionised or tweaked to fit the modern age. Explain in detail how this dish was introduced to you, why and how this particular dish became your favourite. If you could inject some history or origin of this dish as well, it's all the better! With this, I therefore named this year's topic - MUHIBBAH.
Now, if you can, do recreate this dish in your kitchen. You can stick to the original recipe or your own. Those who can't cook, you can go to your favourite place to dine on this dish BUT you will need to do a little bit more... by writing some history about this favourite dining place of yours and how you stumbled upon this place or it could be that your grandparents or parents whom have brought you there since you're young.
Take a picture of your homecooked dish or the one you have ordered, put it up together with your posting. Email me at babe_kl(at)yahoo(dot)com, a copy of this picture (500x375 pixels) and the following details BY midnight Malaysian time of 29 August 2007 but of course the earlier the better. I need time to compose the round up and post it up by 31 August.
Name or nick
Permalink/URL of your post
Name of the dish
Do put this reference at the end of your post for self-round up, just copy and paste:
As long as you’re a Malaysian, doesn't matter where you're located, you can participate. Unlike last year where I forbade sensitive ingredients ie. pork/beef but I'm not going to do so this time. It's difficult to impose but since this is a virtual open house with the Muhibbah theme, I guess it's ok lah. HOWEVER, if you feel offensive please don't take part and please don't spam me. This is just for fun and I hope you guys don't take things so seriously.
Those without a blog, don't fret, you can join in too, just write your article and send me the details together with the picture (if you have). I will post your article on my blog.
Looking forward to your entries and happy cooking/eating!
