Spring Parade

3 May Spring Parade - Featured

This Sunday, unlike other sundays, is gonna be monumental. As a young Malaysian, this 13th general elections sets the bar for our futures. The months (years, really) of bickering between the parties will finally see fruition!

I’ve seen friends who used to scoff at the subject of politics suddenly flood their Facebook walls with all manner of elections related, campaign related, campaigners related content. Did you know that our 1st-time voters make up a whopping 30% of the 13million existing voters? That’s how much we, as a nation, and as owners of this beautiful country, love Malaysia. It’s also a reminder of how strong just one vote is. It is our duty as citizens and our responsibility as taxpayers to vote, not for our own selfish short-term needs, but for the future and for the generations to come.

I’ve sung Negaraku every Monday for 12 years in school and I know the Rukunegara by heart. All my family is in Malaysia and I do not have any affliations to China. I don’t even know how to read and write in Chinese and my Cantonese is atrocious. I only love one country. This country. And if it comes down to it, will only shed blood for one country. This country.

My dear friends, we are the same. It doesn’t matter what our ethnicity is. We are Malaysians. We went to the same school. We played the same games. We enjoy the same amount of public holidays. We have the same memories. Most importantly, we share the same home. Neither of us are more Malaysian than the other. Neither of us should be made to feel that way.

– Amelia Tan, GE13: To my dearest BN supporting friends

Today, our Spring Parade is a symbol of unity, of fairness, of integration, and of a greater Malaysia. (Malaysian Spring)

The Muhibbah

28 Aug The Muhibbah - Featured

The Muhibbah came about the night of the inception of the coffee ice cubes. It was a no-brainer. Of course coffee ice cubes would go well with Irish Cream. Now, what other flavours could we put in there? Coconut? Maybe. Chocolate? Could do. Vodka? We already did that. What do we have in our cabinet? Banana liqueur, melon liqueur, blue curacao… Ya, let’s try banana. And damn, was it a good idea.

Now, the name was just really timely because it’s so close to Malaysia’s independence day (Hari Merdeka) and we’re all looking for a little more unity in our little place here on earth. The Muhibbah stands for our yellow, mocha and brown machas. The mocha makes a good foundation, the yellow adds a little flavour, and the brown just gets everyone to “chill la, bro”.

And on to the mixing! What you’ll need for The Muhibbah is Irish Cream, banana liqueur, and coffee ice cubes (see here for the complete guide to making coffee ice cubes).

Bazooka Joe

1 Aug Bazooka Joe - Feature

As our 1st attempt at mixing, this was a relatively fun drink to start with. We had quite a bit of head scratching moments when the blue-green layer became just one green layer. See, the thing about layered drinks is that you need to experiment with liquid densities so that you don’t mess up the colours, and you need to have a very steady hand. Unfortunately, I don’t have the steadiest of hands, but all things can be trained. Just hold your breath, and pour. We made several attempts and this is the one that succeeded finally.

The Bazooka Joe is a beautiful layered shot with a creamy quality and a bubblegum-y sweet flavour. Some variants of this drink says to shake it up and then serve, but we felt that the colours are just too pretty to mix, and it’s a shot anyway. It can mix on its own, on its way down your esophagus. Ok, what you need for this shot is Irish Cream, Blue Curacao, and banana liqueur.
