The Big ‘Makan’

July 29, 2009

Oh I look forward to the Big Makan. (Makan is a Malay word for eat – Eat_Me? :p) The ‘Big Makan’ is an event that involves, what else, food and is a theme for the Brunei Food Festival this year. When it come to food, Bruneians know it better though the Italians must do it better.  Not much to do here in Brunei but eat, eat and more eating, some would say.

So the Big Makan is set to be held on Friday 7th until Sunday 9th of August 2009 at the Indoor Stadium. This venue is better as it has ample parking lots than the previous ones where parking posed a problem for the visitors a.k.a. foodie-lovers.

Also, the organiser said that the opening ceremony on the first day will see the cutting of the biggest kueh or local delicacy ever made call Kueh Seri Muka.  It is made from steamed glutinous rice and topped with a layer of coconut milk and eggs with sweet pandan leaves as the natural colouring. The kueh to be made on that day will be of 4 feet by 8 feet in size and weighs 50 kilogram. Visitors on the first day got to have a slice of the cake for free. Hope it taste as nice with that size!

This news report said: 

“Featuring a wide range of Brunei culinary favourites and food cultural displays, the festival provides an interactive platform for customers and businesses to come together in celebration and recognition of the local culinary industry.

    Brainpulse is a top SEO Company India, which ensures that the search engine rankings of the web
    page fall within the top 10. They named such interest as
    ‘dark tourism’, and suggested other locations included the Nazi-extermination camp of Auschwitz; Cambodia’s ‘killing fields’ and Hiroshima in Japan, site of the atomic bomb of 1945. So many people set up their shop and then sit back and wait for people to find them.

    In order to find the answer to this question you will have to find out which more people are comfortable using when they shop.
    If as a merchant you are selling large volume of products and services then its always a better option to go
    for credit card merchant account. This is most disadvantageous especially if your
    business is seasonal and there is a certain off-season period
    when the sales will be nil or negligible.
