The Default Nibblet

What’s that? I’m actually referring to the ephemerial Malaysian ‘delicacy’ whenever there’s a meeting or social get together. Yes folks, the ‘karipap’ (or curry puff) we all know and love!

I’m writing about this for no particular reason either than to entertain the perpetual question as to why we love this food so much. Some fundamental questions lie unanswered…

Is it a cake?
Is it really a delicacy?
Why is it always the default food served during meetings?
Who invented it anyway?!

There you have it peeps, some of the burning unanswered questions we’ve been asking ourselves for as long as we can remember. Honestly I do not have the answers and that’s not the purpose of this writing.

But if YOU have an inkling or thoughts on this seemingly trivial matter then do comment for I wish to know!

1Malaysia And Proton

1Malaysia :: Proton

Now here’s an interesting site (and I’m not just saying that because I work for Proton).  Called ‘3 Malaysians’ it’s basically Proton’s micro site in celebration of Malaysia’s 52nd Merdeka (independence day). A collection of 7 short films at 60 seconds each, they star the venerable Afdlin Shauki, the incomparable David Aramugam and the one and only Ho Yuhang.

The web presentation is pretty cool as are the films art direction. One can’t help but notice the similarities to Yasmin Ahmad’s cinematography cues being creatively executed here. I’m not complaining; they are entertaining and fresh. And coming from Proton this certainly is a step forward in illustrating creativity.

Have a look, I’m sure you’ll be entertained.
