Have you done your bit?

Lots of Cravings is not all just about food. Despite the image that i paint that i think about food from the second that i wake up till the minute my head drops on the pillow at night, there are many more things that i crave.

The desire to ramble on about life has suddenly hit me like an occasional lightning bolt that strikes in KL on a rainy windy night.

Many things have happened over the last month and coincidentally all relating one way or another to food, the original intention of the blog.

First matter.

The natural disasters that hit China and Myanmar with fury and anger affecting tens of thousands of people.

Some say it is "karma" and that the Earth has retaliated for all the wrong doings of human kind. In my own eyes, it is tens of thousands of lives changed forever. That faithful day twisted their path of life to an image unrecognizable, from a vivid painting of a rosy future to a dark and distorted piece of abstract art.

Many of these victims are still currently running away to safety and struggling to find enough food to warm their stomachs. Thousands have lost their "rice bucket", "bread winner" and "future".

Yet, We as Malaysians and human beings dont even take this into consideration before and during a meal.

Without a care in the world and without a second thought when one would order food enough for a famished army and letting it go into waste while another young infant starve and cry for milk.

Have we no shame of ourselves when you see that plate of noodles or rice left half touched when you pay the bill? Had you no idea that you could have shared instead of letting greed get over you?

With that first part coming to an ending and work about to start any second, please do your part for the Sichuan Disaster. Dont just let food go to waste innocently, start from ordering less, finishing up your food before you order some more and thank the lucky stars that you have food at disposal, a bed to sleep at night and a roof over your head.

Another thing..King Crab Restaurant is doing their bit by organising a string of Charity Dinners in their KL and JB branch.
