Merdeka Open House 2009: How To

Wow I'm impressed with the amount of responses so far I've gotten over the Merdeka Open House 2009. I'm glad I soldiered on this year ;-)

With the theme set as My Sweet Malaysia, let's get on with how do we go about doing this virtual open house.

As long as you’re a Malaysian, you can participate no matter where you’re located. Those who are married to Malaysians are welcome to partipate as well.

  1. Cook up traditional sweets of all kind as long as it tastes sweet be it desserts of your ethnic group; or something sweet your family serves for tea or snack. There will be no restrictions as to whether it has to be halal or not.

  2. Take a picture of your dish, type in your write-up and the recipe (if you have one, otherwise your ingredients and method would suffice if you're the guesstimate/agak-agak type). Do stick to traditional recipe without any shortcuts or replacement of ingredients to make it modern or fusion but it is all right for overseas participants due to limited ingredients. This open house is something for us to cherish our wonderful roots and we hope we could preserve the recipes that our ancestors have hand down.

  3. Post it up in your blog by 29th August 2009 but of course if you can do it earlier, it’s all the better to ease me in rounding up on 31st August.

  4. All entries must reach me by 29th August 2009, midnight Malaysian time at babe_kl(@)yahoo(dot)com. Our virtual party will be on 31st August 2008. In your email, attach a picture of your dish (minimum 500x375 pixels) and please state the following details:

    Name or nick
    Permalink/URL of your post
    Name of the dish

If you do not own a blog but wish to participate, kindly do your write up and send it together with the picture to me. I’ll post it up for you.

Looking forward to your entries and happy cooking!
