Salam Ramadhan and Hello All

It has been a while again since I last wrote but this time Sidney knows how busy I am since I resigned from Lotus Formula One so I am totally excused. Thanks Sidney.

In the last three weeks, things going hectic not just in the restaurant but outside too. As always, Ning Restaurant is very busy especially towards the weekend. So that keeps the momentum going. There are few good news that I want to share this time. One of the biggest is for me to be chosen as one of the best local chefs for The Northern Restaurant & Bar campaign to mark their 10th anniversary. Only five chefs were chosen for this campaign and I am one of them. At first when I was told to go for a photoshoot, I thought it’s just for normal magazine photoshoot as not many details were told at the time my manager (also business partner), Andy spoke to them. Only when I asked them at the location, then suddenly the overwhelming rush went straight to my body and face after they told my why I was chosen etc. Well enough about that, I don’t want to get it into my head. I am still a humble kampung boy who loves cooking and will work hard to get Malaysian cuisine known in the UK.

My busy week began with the outside catering for Ema Kwai’s Paintings Exhibition. Only canapés served at this event. This is what I like to do as it shows my creativity. It was catered for 60 guests and the canapés are mixture of Malaysian food and fusion.

The guests really enjoyed the canapés and not many of them were aware of Malaysian food and event like this is a good exposure for them to know more about our wonderful cuisine.

    Oh my, is that murtabak I see? I haven’t had it in so long I’ve almost forgotten what it tastes like!

    On another note, everything looks amazing.

    p.s. I love Ottolenghi – Sunny, I’m sure you’ll really like to try their cakes/pastries.

    Food looks superb… Drool! Drool! You’re a professional chef…or is it your friend, Norman Musa. A bit confused here…but I saw the cake you made in somebody’s blog for Ken’s birthday – definitely not an amateur, able to make a cake like that. Hmmmmmm…my birthday is in December! Muahahahahaha!!!!
