Ah, Friedchillies - can't imagine that it's been around since 1998!

I have been really lazy, again, and just copied and pasted this whole list from alilfatmonkey. Do check out what he thinks of the event: Click here or go read the "official" write up on Friedchillies - Click here)

Thanks so VERY much to Adly, Honey, Alexandra and the rest of the Friedchillies team for the invite and great night at the Awards night in Wau Penyu...

(Ooh, and the videos were HILARIOUS. Can't get over the Old Spice Guy parody and the Char Kuey Teow Addict one too)

  1. i wonder if they'll expand the categories in future years. it's soooooo unfair that assam laksa gets a mention, but my much-beloved, much-desired curry laksa doesn't, heheh :D

  2. LOL.
    Well, wouldn't mind a few sweet categories too! - Ice Kacang, Cendol... etc.
    .. but even currently, the "To Try/Eat" List is getting a bit too long already!


Appreciate your thoughts, opinions and feedback. :)
