Mahsuri Buka Puasa Event - Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Hidayah (Puchong)


Being a blogger isn't all about dolling up, attending glamorous events and rubbing shoulders with celebrities. At times it's about dressing appropriately for a meaningful buka puasa event at a welfare home. I was truly honoured to be invited to Rumah Kebajikan Baitul Hidayah organised by Mahsuri. I walked in, exchange greetings and had a chance to see and hear about how the children are cared in the home. Indeed such a meaningful way of reflecting the effort of Mahsuri and those present to make the event a success.  





I sat with the boys and tried to break the ice. Some smiled backed whereas others were shy. But as soon as the games and clown show started, they surely loosen up and had fun. I cheered and clapped to engage and motivate the children as well as when the winners were rewarded with gifts and hampers. Certainly a pleasure of supporting the meaningful event for a good cause. Thereafter the residents including myself were treated to a delicious Buka Puasa spread cooked using Mahsuri sauce.





At this point I have to say that I was happy for receiving a bottle of  Mahsuri hot sweet soy sauce and a packet of dates. Cooking is pretty much one of my passion. Definitely the sauce will be put to good use for the dishes I have in mind.

For other home cooks, here's your chance. Participate in the "Masak and Menang" contest by Mahsuri running from 28th May to 8th July 2015. Create dishes with Mahsuri products to take home RM500.00 and a chance to be among the 24 winners to visit the a total of four welfare homes together with Mahsuri employees throughout the contest period. The next two homes to be visited are Pusat Jagaan Cahaya Kasih Bestari (4th July) and Rumah Sakinah (11th July). Share a snapshot of the delicious Buka Puasa creations on the MyMahsuri facebook page  with hastags #MyMahsuri and #Manis / #Pedas / #Tiram /#Ayam. You never know of the potential of seeing your dishes on the page

As for the food, I loved the nasi ambang. Never tasted before but certainly I love any dish made with rice. Nasi ambang won my heart with the different types of condiments plus the addition of ayam goreng berempah. The kuih-muih and jelly on the hand is a reminder that any Malaysian event is not complete without  tucking into such delicacies.



I left with a full heart and stomach while thinking how privilege I am for the things I have. Now its time to ponder further about giving to the society just like Mahsuri. Perhaps you too can open up your heart and search on how to engage in meaningful deeds no matter how small it can be.
