prime Dining , Minister style

...a really mouthwatering menu


Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra , the country's first PM . 4 times married ( 2 were Chinese ) and so down-to-earth he was pressured to leave office after the infamous 1969 riots . He refuses to go away though as his ghostly chants of "Merdeka" will invariably fill the air every 31 Aug on Independence Day.


He loves racing plus some. And Hainanese chicken chops too . In no particular order.



Then came Tun Abdul Razak , the studiously firm 2nd PM , who introduced the 30 or so year-NEP ( the new economic policy ) , a policy now inadvertently becoming everlasting .





His eldest son Najib is the current Deputy PM and Defence Minister. Educated in England , he is known to love smoochy French food but also has a strange penchant for Mongolian delicacies such as this BBQ ...

...the scrumptious Mongolian BBQ meat on a platter







Sentimental Hussein Onn is the 3rd PM , taking over after a tearjerking swearing-in ceremony after the death of his beloved brother-in-law Abdul Razak, who died early from a heart-attack , induced by , some say his extreme disappointment with the less than satisfactory performance of his fellow brethens . The short -lived Hussein ( he passed away also from heart trouble) probably loves kebab since his forfathers were Arabs while his hoarse voiced son the current Education Minister sometimes wields his crooked Keris ( traditional Malay small hand knife ) eccentrically as a past time, usually in front of large noisy crowds .
Hussein's suspected favorite dish , bread kebabs

Mahathir Mohamad , the country's controversial go-getter 4th PM and the nemesis of the International Monetary Fund ( IMF ) is well-known for his simple lifestyle ( he doesn't play golf ) & tastes and so he likes simple food such as this little bread , so much so from his sick bed in IJN ( Naional Heart Institute , KL ) he could still direct the setting up of his 2nd gourmet bakery 'the Loaf" in Pavilion,KL.
All eyes ( and ears ) are now anxiously awaiting his full recovery on his expected cutting-edge comments on the 'Lingamgate Video ' blockbuster ( hot on the heels of the other one Namwee's Negarakuku ) , now playing to packed houses in Blogoshere.











Our current holiday loving PM ( " ...I have spoken to my Cabinet "... ) meanwhile is fond of Mamak Nasi Kandar ( Indian Muslim rice ) and will spare no efforts to ' bungkus ' ( takeaway ) from his favourite shops like Kayu , Pelita , etc ., etc.

We are not sure about his multi-talented gatecrashing finger pointing 'My Team' SIL (son-in-law ) though . People say he is quite conscious of his fake Hindustani movie star looks cum swasbuckling political ambitions and doesn't care much for Mamak food like his FIL


We present above the salivating best of Mamaks ! Once try must fall asleep in seconds , especially during ( big ) meetings .
Enjoy ! ( but keep yr eyes o p e n )

i wonder when would they declare their affection for the daging masak merahs and satays as they should be patriotic enuf to savor their own makan(s)...instead of imported/fused version....lol.

maybe the SIL's fav is the german pork knuckle with warsteiner fused with nasi putih and this dish is called MAYA. or, perhaps, secretly, the XIAO LOONG LUIs, opps BAOs at the CHASE THE DRAGONS INN????lol.
