Every year, I try to show my support to the hardworking committee members of Malaysia Festival or MFest. Well, haha, okay, support for the food and also certain friends. This year's committee are a fortunate bunch, as they had awesome weather for the event, which in turn resulted in a very encouraging crowd at Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour.
Some of my friends, like Eugene here, is part of a committee that sacrifices time from studies and rest.
Quality control time for Eugene? Haha, sharing a light banter with the owner of Jackie M Restaurant in Concord, Jackie.
Every year, I never fail to get my serving of char kuey teow from Jackie. I love their char kuey teow. This year, I even printed off a voucher she shared to redeem a bowl of bubur chacha.
My other friends queued at other stalls to grab other Malaysian delicacies like satay, nasi lemak and nasi ayam penyet.
Of course, a stop by the PappaRoti stall to say hi to Junda is a must!
There never is a moment during my time at the event that I am 'free'. My friends always complain that I am too busy saying hi to other friends that I coincidentally meet at the event.
I guess when the sun is directly above you at midday, it does get a little hard to withstand.
And this year's entertainment did not fail to stand out!
Personally, I feel that there is more variety in the food and performances this year. The only negative for me was the female emcee. Kudos to the 2012 committee!
