This is the Makan Day flag. You can print it out or download it on your phone (right-click and save)
Here is what I propose we do. Spend your Makan Day anywhere you wish and with whomever you like. You may want to try, for example, void deck, the beach, the parks, or some place where many diners in white may be having a picnic.
For myself, I will be at Raffles Place for lunch at around noon (I hear Power98 FM will be giving out tau huay there too). And I am likely to be at Marina Barrage for the evening.
Since this is a decentralized event (you want me to kena arrested for illegal assembly ah?), let's mark it by taking a photo of your celebration of our food culture, with this Makan Day flag in it. Use a printed copy, use a digital copy on your phone, it's all good. Then post on Twitter (use hashtag #makanday), Facebook and wherever you like. I will collect as many Makan Day photos from you guys as I can and share them on my blog.
Oh ya, if you are having picnics, DON'T LITTER HOR! Throw your stuff properly, ok?
Ready? Set? Makan!
