Going to Hague? Pt 2

I promise this will be the last blog about “laying claims” on Malaysian’s delicacies.

Today’s paper reported someone claimed that “Hainanese chicken rice” actually originated from Malacca and bak Kut teh originated from Penang. I throw in my towel, really.

And to make it more interesting, our Tourism Minister claimed she was misquoted previously. It was not to “patent” Malaysian’s dishes but to “brand” them as tourism product.

Honestly, I am all for it if it does attract more tourists to Malaysia.

One phrase that I know is truly from Malaysia. Mat Rempit.

Anyone begs to differ?

Lastly, Andrew Zimmern (of Bizarre Food TV series) best coined it, ” if it looks good, eat it”
