I read today’s paper with much amusement. True enough, our claim on certain delicacies are faced with much flaks and objections.
Carment told me that even Hong Kong now claims “Hainanese chicken rice” is theirs as it is from Hainan island. Ironically, someone once told me that you can’t find hainanese chicken rice on Hainan island. I dont have the slightest clue whether it’s true or not. Anyone care to enlighten me?
Anyway, i truly agree with a netizen’s comment. Be it Malaysian’s or Singapore’s or even Hong Kong’s, as long as food served is tasty, I am good to go.
Who cares which food belongs to whom? If food can unite the whole nation, i will be the first one to punch my fist into the air and shout, Malaysia boleh!
