GFWS Sydney 2011

I really wanted to go to a food event since like forever. After seeing Shellie from http://ironchefshellie.com having so much fun at the #GFWS in Melbourne, I was determined to go to the Sydney show. It was by hook or by crook, not really! I voluntered my services to Jackie M and booked my flight and hotel and declared to the world that I was going to this show....hehehe!

So here I am in Sydney, it was certainly buzzing with activities and excitement. I went straight to the Malaysian stand to help out Jackie and Vani from http://www.jackiem.com.au Jackie gave me my very own Jackie M Tshirt... Thank you Lord that it fits.... bahahhahaah! I really need to lose some weight but how can I when I am surrounded by all these wonderful Malaysian dishes. I had so much fun helping out and even had time to roam around checking out products and celeb spotting ;)

There are more photos in my album at http://www.facebook.com/YummyStuffGoesHere

I didn't get to sample much food at other stands as the lines were long and we were flat out on that first day. There was a huge crowd at the Malaysian stand, we ran out of food for food sampling ;) Jackie M brought more food on the second day for food sampling.

I took some time to get more photos on the second day which was Saturday, the crowd on Saturday was bigger. I would say that it was a very successful event for all and I was so glad that I went.
