eh mamak, be proud of your fame lah

here in malaysia, when we hear the word, "mamak" the first thing that comes to mind is the mamak stalls selling all sorts of affordable yummy food.

mamak is actually a term for indian muslims. true as it may be that they also excel in other fields and industries, it is the mamak stalls that brings their fame many, many notches higher. in fact, mamak stalls are a way of life for us malaysians, regardless of race or creed. it's a malaysian tourist attraction, or to term it more aptly, a malaysian-must-have.

these stalls that we can always find anytime of the day or night, 24/7 is the bloodline that intergrates the "muhibbah" spirit of us malaysians. this spirit of racial integration is what gives us malaysians our diverse and colourful culture.

would malaysia be the same without our beloved mamak? no way lah! no mamak?? where can?!?

i'm proud of our mamaks... wouldn't you be?

JJ and Rudy of recently made a parody "i got it from my mamak". very apt anthem for our yummilicious mamak stalls.

i'm going to my fav mamak stall now. "... aney, teh tarik satu, kurang manis; setengah masak dua..."
