If you have been following my blog since 2006, you might be aware of this virtual open house that I have been hosting on Merdeka Day for the past 2 years. How time flies, we're almost a month away from our National Day which got me into panic mode since I've not done anything yet for this year's event.

For the newbies, here are the gists... all you need to do is cook something to the theme of the open house. Submit your entry or entries to me via email. Post up the entry in your blog. Come 31st August 2008, I will round up all the entries here. If you do not have a blog, don't fret, I will post it up for you. Easy peasy!

Now, how about helping me to come out with this year's theme? Our first open house was all about long forgotten Malaysian recipes and the second was Muhibbah. Kindly leave your suggestions in the comment box by 30th July 2008 (next Wednesday), then I will run a poll to pick the most favourable theme. Please publicise this project or tell your fellow Malaysian bloggers or friends or family about this or best if you drag them to participate. Thank you.

I'm sooo looking forward to this year's theme! So hurry yah...

Some history here:
Check how the first open house came about. Year 2006 theme was Malaysian Recipes Long Forgotten and just look at the mouth-watering dishes that Malaysian bloggers have cooked for 2006.

Year 2007, I got some suggestions then I ran a poll to pick the theme - Muhibbah. It was very muhibbah indeed with some exotic grubs from East Malaysia!

It's the time of the year again huh? Hmmm... what about "Kuih-Muih Malaysia"?

Since we malaysians have a very sweet tooth, I'd say desserts (inc cakes/pastries/puddings).

But it must fulfil one or both of these requirements

(1)made from ingredients which are either white,yellow,blue or red.


(2)the final product must be one of the 4 colours or a mix

white = flour
yellow = lemons, butter
red = strawberries, apples
blue = okay this one is a bit hard. lol

guys, good work. please keep them coming!

iced nyior, we did thought about the flag colours but majority find it a wee too difficult to incorporate those colours into their food unless you're talking about icing cake with them.

Iced Nyior said...

thats why i added this
"(1)made from ingredients which are either white,yellow,blue or red."

blue = berries, yellow = egg yolks, red =apples and so on and so forth

the final product doesnt hv to be coloured :P

How about 'Mee & my country Malaysia'? Mee, as in Noodles. All local ways of cooking noodles, e.g. laksa, fusion spaghetti, Char Kueh Teow, Asam, Mee name it. We Malaysians are never short of ME and my MEE!!!

Please give me a buzz when the theme is set and I will post the theme on my forum for a cookout over there as well. Thanks for hosting, babe!
