There have been some talks on how to look into book X change for cake donors, ideal space and blah, blah, blah..... People talk and look but to get things done, I NIKE it. NIKE slogan of JUST DO IT.

I believe in eating when the food is warm as strike when the iron is hot. Also, I would be cooking two birds in one pan or rather two bread in one big oven.

I would offer designer bread i.e. US Sushi Roll and Romans Garlic Bread FREE or di atas rumah Zinglicious this coming Sunday 1-3pm.

A donation box would be put up to support Yvonne foundation, too! All the donors registered todate who had donated in Patrick account would be given a free American VIP drinks for thier charitable kindness.

Those interested, please SMS or PM me by Saturday to confirm reservations as to avoid food wastage or inadequate servings. Limit to 88 pax .

AND need extra volunteers to put coordinate and set up the books booth at the sidewalk and patio. Sentinel, Rajiv, Hannah Yeoh?

As for me, I would be too busy baking and serving good food.

P.S. only this sunday as in Oct, the reservations should be full and I just NIKE IT to start the ball rolling while singing evergreen hit of MY WAY.

Good of you to start the ball rolling this way, Zing. Perhaps you should contact YB Hannah about it. Both of you can also make a media splash about it... she looks good, your no-MSG biz also can get an extra Zing! to it...

p.s. I will down in USJ this Sunday but my flight will arrive very late...

This idea just come like that to answer the response after reading comments in the forum. Though I supposely want to highlight the need of a neighbourhood library for Malaysians to actually encopurage reading habits, the book X change seem to be a good idea for the time being.
Also, doing my bit to help Yvonne as I moh looi to donate and reward those who have given.

And I dont want to be politically linked, otherwise I might be called as a witness to MACC. Neither do I want to be romantically linked with beautiful woman like Hannah Yeoh as both of us are married.

I dont want to seek cheap publicity like Ng Yam Yam. In fact, I would be hiding in my kitchen to avoid it as I am shylah.

Anyhow, I always believe in NIKE it and dunked like Michael Jordan.

I have received PM but few confirmed coming. Some could make it either they would be flying, motoring, and cycling on Sunday.

Please confirm attendance by PM to me , or perhaps the Moderator Patrick so to keep a list of attendance and because of the donation box, I nominated him to take charge of that too!

I was asked if I am hosting this event... Well, I am Not. I'm just offering free food and venue ( because there were talks but no action )in the why books are so expensive ). I NIKE it. I would like the USJ forum to claim the title or somebody but hopefully not politicians.

ANyway, because I am not charging for the food, kindly have the courtesy to register because I do not want to waste food. In fact, those who come without registering, I would charge RM5.00 for the food.

As for the VIP drinks for the donors, plse registered by PM or SMS otherwise RM6.50 charge would apply.

All the drinks money made would help me to cover my food costs and operation and if more guys do not register, I may make money on this event.

But finally, plse bring the books for exchange or given away. Lets read, talk, and ACTION by NIKE.

Let's show the govt if they care of us to have a real decent neighborhood library right here in Malaysia instead of promoting F1 formulae Worldwide

Make that change! Make Malaysia a better place by looking at ourselves first in the mirror instead of Formula1 mirage.

BTW, the address and google location is located at Cari Makan - Healthy with no MSG

Oh ,also any volunteers to take care of the books? And we might need some big size bodyguards for Patrick as he might be holding tons of money in the donation box.

And plse PM the attendance by saturday noon as I need to prep my food. Otherwise, there may be insuffient food because I am actually hosting Sunday night buffet which starts at 6.30pm for paying customers.
Thanks for your consideration and attention.

You should asked how a crab smell like if it couldnt get no oxygen. Once, I had bought 10 crabs with each weighing about 800gm each. But when I reached my restuarant, I found only 9 crabs! One crab missing and doing Houdini act. I seacrch the whole place in the car and restaurant. None.

I found the crab the next day when I pick my car. Without using my eyes , just my nose.

The moral of the story here is "ask not how the crab looks like but how she smell like".

P.s. Incidentally, that was the last time about 12 years back I bought crabs as I couldnt drive the car for 3 days despite spraying water and detergent the whole carpet under the seat.

If you fly with Air Malaysia Boleh, like the one by the loaned to OTK from Sarawak, you get carry more than two suitcase of tau sar peng. Then, I dont have to sweat baking those free breads. So, I would be free to coordinate the X change book program upfront!

Aiyoh, up to date, only about 5 confirmation only lah. Where got enough books to x change? and my job to bake tibits is gonna to be sweatless. Maybe I delegate the job to my maid to do it and I spend some time upfront to be Chang body guard over the Yvonne donation box.
And any people having funny thought about the box, beware - I am trained in Thai boxing and knife choppings. My kitchen has at least 20 knives.
Kindly call at my cel phone 8226, where youcan find the details in cari makan - healthy with no MSG.

The good , the bad and ugly news. Miracles perhaps?????

The good news :- The event would still go ahead as planned today at 1 pm to 3 pm though some commented about such short notice especially Hari Raya break. Those who have confirmed before the dateline would be getting the free tibits and since the number was below the quota of 88 pax, I would be free to read the books at the X change program. Patrick did not need my service to guard over the box as he has entrusted his Minister of Defence to do it.

The bad news :-One mystery guest from Ipoh Mari which I invited couldnt come. Otherwise, it woudl have shock a lot of people for not turning up. But her presence would surely help to boost Yvonne box. Maybe she declined because of the lukewarm response and I only can afford to pay her presence with garlic breads Just Kidding. She is one iconic caring Malaysian.

The ulgy :- No volunteers to put up the tables for the book display. Guess like I end up doing hte carrying instead of baking. mana itu caring Subang Jaya , folks ah??? I know one is in India, the other motoring the countryside, and also the other couldnt get the private jet loan from the Sarawakian. He would be late from flying with Air Asia. The Air Asia always obey traffic lights and speed limits.

The miracle - we never know because Malaysians seldom like to make reservations. But we do have caring Malaysian. Just like Partick, he even insist on paying for it even he make reservations and he has to work by watching very cautiously over Yvonne Box. But the biggest micracle is if I can see our Mystery guest all the way from Ipoh Mali. My 7 year old son would the greatest fan - not her, but her car. :D

Hey, why not incorporate this into the Friday teh tarik session agenda? Instead of going to the mamak, we could go to Zinglicious! This afternoon, I was in church selling t-shirts. Made more than RM500. Ours is a rather small family church and even then, many did not attend. Maybe they were still on Raya break. The youths were also doing car wash to raise funds for the coming youth camp and we had satay for lunch on the house!

What do you all think? Hmmm... but this is asking the chef to cook twice.

My intention of NIKE it the x change book programme is to start the ball rolling to those who brought up the iisues of why books are expensive and suggested it.
But just dont have time and resources to do a teh tarik or x change everytime
Anyway, might be organising some public forum on health issues if I have time and can get revelant speakers on nutrition and heart issues.
For the start, I have to get Dato Dr Suseela Nair for the pilot program where she was pivot into getting me to start of no MSG restaurant years back.

Sadly, only 3 of us were at Zing's effort. As we were a bit hungry, Zing was kind enough to quickly cook up a nice sphagetti meal and a nice fish for my wifey. We both enjoyed the meal very much. Thanks Zing! Well, at least I met up with Zing and Sulyn!! That's worth the effort!!

At USJ.com, bananas were given for violations. At ZInglicious, bananas were given to moderators and visitors for turning up. Was given a banana before by the forum but perhaps I was the only succeed in giving the moderator banana too. :cool:

Aiyah, everybody is beautiful in her own way......( from one oldies but goodies) Just forgoten what was the title of the song though.

I think you can afford to spend RM6.80 Nasi Lemak Ayam which is a goody which is thicken by yogurt instead of jsut coconut, baked instead of fried , herbs & spices instead of MSG.
This I am sure your parents would love it as everyday occasion. And not forgetting fried rice which is priced the same.
Of course, if you are getting a big bonus yearend, you might consider giving them Lobster Triplex Sensations. Priced more than RM 6.80

Yep, it was sad because only three for you guys get bananarama. Perhaps it was a long weekend holidays. :confused: :confused:Its marketing Zinglicious, or the lack of it. The message should be FREE BANANARAMA and not fund raising for Yvonne, which should not be mentioned at all if possible, book exchange was the objective but it got blurred....

zinglicious
02-10-2009, 01:01 AM
I thought I can kill two birds with one stone, especially if I manage to cook with ten ovens and ten burners. :cool:
Ok, free Bananarama desserts was given as I was too free with only three guests for the event. Anyway, if the forumer were to read the post properly, I just want to reward the thoughtful donors, hence the Yvonne donations box for those who still want to donate. Yes, the objective was x change book.
As i said in the earlier post, I NIKE it because people can talk all till the cows come home, but nothing gets done. Unless news are sizzled like the steak, people or politicians wont commit themselves. Just like your post about people wanted change politically but couldnt find time to register as voters.

You are right. It is all about marketing! I dont even market my restaurant.
BTW - I dont want to be accused of promoting my restaurant like when I was newbie six months ago when I started the Healthy with no MSG in Cari Mkan column. Some forumers may be sensitivelah.

But if I agressively promote my restaurant, would Zinglicious loses the identity? But then again I really dont have the time to do marketing except to Selayang market. Hey, I am responsible for ten ovens and another ten ovens which is a task.
Anyway, I would be organising some forums especially on cancer and nutrition soon. Then perhaps everybody would hear more about Zinglicious.

So since I have NIKE IT, I pass the ball over to the forumers who suggested it or the MPSJ councillors or our ADUN. They are the actual people to organize it.
When I decided to organize it, I merely want to kick start the objective of the X change program. Not to advertise how great is my romans Garlic Bread, or USA Sushi Roll and it was literally given free. So is my American VIP drinks for the donors.
But the free Bananarama was great as it was given to Patrick to see whether a moderator would enjoy getting a banana. :D
And luckily for me, the mystery IPOH MARI guest could not come.... otherwise it could be a bit awkward as only three guests showed up. But of course if she turn up, then I try to charm her with my food and drinks, since my boss is not around. :)
