Representing Singapore and bi-winning (MyPaper, NomNomNom and BakKutTeh Challenge agst Malaysia – What’s been happening in the +65 universe?)

2 Aug

Sorry we have gone bit quiet for awhile.

gozgozgozgoz has gone into massive midlife crisis, bleached his hair blonde, and is now looking for fast women and bare legal cars and generally travelling and disappearing into his batcave. occasionally when he remembers that he is not a rock star and comes crashing down to earth and we drag him away from his toys, he is running a little not-so-secret project of his, dragging in Shu of mummyicancook into his devious road to world domination (one can dream). (Shu, who’s article on RICE, by the way has been featured in New York Times Diner’s Journal today! WE ARE SO DARN PROUD OF HER!)

Lately we have been doing a lotta representing and making waves for Singapore (in a good way. Not in a grades for sex scandal kinda way) so here’s a quick round up of the plusixfive universe so far to assure / annoy you that we are unfortunately still alive and kicking and ready to spam your inboxes:

(1) Featured in Singapore News (MyPaper)!

MUM! LOOK!

We were interviewed last week and featured in the daily free morning Singapore newspaper (think Metro in London) on Singaporean food overseas! Yowzaa! We are lovin’ it! (even though they got goz’s name wrong)

(2) CHAMPIONS OF THE BATTLE OF THE BAK KUT TEH (#BakKutTehOff) AGAINST MALAYSIA!

We said it before and we will say it again. Singapore Bak Kut Teh is better than Malaysia’s.

Last Sunday, we represented Singapore and fought a long hard tense battle against WildSerai as we dished out 50 bowls each of Malaysian BKT and Singapore BKT.

The public came and the public voted.

It was a very very tense moment when the results was announce but we are happy to announce that:

*flashflashflash* SINGAPORE won BOTH the people’s choice (where people voted with bowls) AND the amount of money raised for ActionAgainstHunger! *flashflashflash*

SINGAPORE REPREZENTZ!

(thanks to the lovely sponsors http://momowich.com/http://shop.waiyeehong.com/ and to all at Pop Up Singapore House for giving us the opportunity to finally confirm what everyone knew all along. SINGAPORE BKT IS BETTER THAN MALAYSIA. DUH.)

(incidentally, everyone should go check out the Pop Up Singapore House. There are some fabulous art works and laser light installations on display. AND there will be an AWESOME and crazy theatrical dinner on 31 August HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL by the TwoHungryGirls and Platform65. THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED.)

(3) NATIONAL DAY AT THE SUPPERCLUB SUMMIT

Oh and lastly, we have been invited to cook at the largest supperclub summit ever. Thats happening next Wednesday and tickets sold out within 4 days of it being released!

WE WERE THE FIRST SUPPERCLUB TO SELL OUT! EEEKS! 

(but if you want to be on the waitlist, please email us at plusixfive@gmail.com if anyone pulls out we will let you know!)

We have a mad crazy crew lined up for you. It will be like a MAD all star all singing all dancing bombastic dining experience ever.

ShuHan will be getting her eggs all hot and spicy, Charlene will be currying favour with her puffs, Christine will showcase her buns, Andrew cant wait for you to try his long tender meat stick, Jason will be plate up his balls, and Radhika and Cui will be baring it all. Goz will generally be at the sidelines dancing:

erm.

Oh and we will have a secret hello drink made by a UBER HIPSTERATI SHOREDITCH SPEAKEASY. Hmm.

But what fun will it be if i told you all exactly what was gonna happen… ;p

SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEDNESDAY ALL YOU ALL WHO HAVE TICKETS.

REMEMBER. TO. WEAR. RED. BRIGHT FRIGGIN RED.

(4) GLOBAL FEAST 2012

We have been invited to cook at this event on 5th August 2012. Jason (feasttotheworld.com) and I have seen the table and its nuts. It sits eighty, its the shape of the freaking world, contours and all and is the shiztz. And its set in an amazing victorian town hall and is outdoors. Its amazing. Tickets are still available and can be bought here 

And we will have Singaporean singer-songwriter, Radhika of ResonanceMusicProject serenading y’all under the pale moonlight.

We are whipping up a #hothotsex menu including:

Pork Belly

Chwee Kueh

Mom’s Hainanese Chicken Rice 

Pulut Hitam

Its the SHIZZZLEZ.

But don’t take my word for it, at PRESS NIGHT:

SINGAPORE REPREZENT!!! (insert cool hand gangsta signing) 

  • London Unattached also reviewed us and her personal favourite from ALL the CANAPES? WAS THE CHWEE KUEH! YAY!

Who would guess the humble breakfast made from rice cakes and preserved turnip would garner such attention halfway across the world huh?

(5) 2nd PRIZE WINNERS FOR NOMNOMNOM2012

We took part in the NOMNOMNOM2012 competition with the ever talented (LOOK AT HER CAKES!) Leigh of craft-cakes. A yearly masterchef style competition judged by Anna Hansen (Modern Pantry), Martin Morales (Cerviche), Francesco Mazzei (L’Anima), Tom Hunt (Bar Poco) and others!
