A reader informed me that probably Pastamania is going HALAL and need some confirmation. I heard nothing at the moment and the 2 websites (pastamania and MUIS) did not mention anything .Hmm…
Well, let’s wait and see….
This is interesting…
p.s: Updated 7/12/08, Harris Chai had shed some light on this matter (thanks!) . Harris, if u like Japanese food and raw oysters/cold seafood then u must try the Family international buffet..dont forget to eat some for me… hehe!
Read it at:
A reader told me about Malaysians frying banana fritters with plastic bottles. Well, I had heard about bawang goreng (fried shallots) that were fried with plastic straws to make them last longer. I am no fan of shallots or the onions family but when soup, u add these fried shalots, it kinda gives that extra flavour. But when i heard about that from my mum (i dunno where she get that info) for a month, we avoid bawang goreng /fried shallots and if we eat out, we request “no fried shallots please”. But then , over the time, kinda troublesome with that request, so I kinda forgets and tawakal.
To answer that question, so far, i did not see any plastic bottles being thrown in the hot wok or its remains. But normally, these pasar is held MALAM (night) so my visibility might not be as great as the day. But so far, I did not see any of that sort..but if i did, I will surely took a pic…thanks for the warning…this time, i will keep an extra eye scouting for weird objects in the hot wok…heh!
Remember my last post about rambutans? Well, the recent food scare-very RED rambutans. Well, I saw those bunch before. They were weird red, so red that Ive never seen before and i was actually scared to eat them, i dunno why (luckily i was) …So eat with precaution. Whatever u eat, check its source…if unsure, just avoid….if no choice , read some prayers/supplications before eating. (for me, I like to read surah Quraish and blow on the food).Take care…
p.s: Anyway, let me wish all Muslim readers a very..
HAPPY and BLESSED Aidil Adha .
May u get to spend the happy day with ur loved ones!
And not forgetting to doa for those who had left for the pilgrimage.
Semoga urusan mereka dipermudahkan and mereka mendapat haji mabrur and we will get to go one day. amin.
