Let's face it, Malaysians don't need any excuses to eat. We drive miles to find good food, forge through floods and other natural disasters and never be the first to put our forks down. And now we are asking you and your appetite to eat for a good cause, right in Klang Valley?
Friedchillies.com, your user-friendly web food guide will be organising the anchor event for the first ever Lion's Malaysian Hawker Food Festival. And we are bringing back the BEST NASI LEMAK EVENT! It was so popular in our last ChilliBash that every morsel was finished by noon. Never fear, this time we are back bigger and better with extra barrels of rice and supersize drums of sambal- (just kidding- but there will be a ridiculous amount of Nasi Lemak). So far we have 5 stalls and waiting to hear back from a few more. Confirmed invitees so far: Nasi Lemak Tanglin, Nasi Lemak Dang Wangi Raja Abdullah, Nasi Lemak Tanjung Puteri, Madam Tea Chinese Nasi Lemak, Nasi Lemak D'Condo Segambut.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO TO?
Proceeds from the event will go towards LIONS CyberCare Underprivileged Children Development Programme. These good folks basically help underprivileged children in homes (orphanages) get I.T. literate and support them in things like education and leadership camps. They also connect these kids to organisations in the public & private sector, other homes and NGO's by fostering an eCommunity System.
Your money will also go towards supporting Cybercare training programmes
- Educational Excellence Program (EEP): To date over 650 students have been awarded Merit awards and 5 university students been granted tertiary
- E-Workshops : To date over 1500 children have been trained on computers
- CyberCare and Leaderships Camps: Yearly leadership camps are held nationally

So please bring your family and friends along for a wonderful time! See ya there...
