Daily: The Festival Gala Launch (Malaysia International Gourmet Festival 2014)

MIGF (Malaysia International Gourmet Festival) is the ultimate gastronomic event of the year for foodies. I’ve heard about it previously and this year, I was invited to the most prestigious event for bloggers. The concept was Red Hot Chefs and the sole purpose of the event was for everyone to get the golden opportunity to taste fabulous cuisines from all over the world without even having to buy a plane ticket.

The Gala Launch held at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre started about 7 pm on the 26th September (Friday) and media plus VIPs were given the first hand to try out all the exclusive dishes whipped up by famous chefs from many restaurants all over Malaysia. It was a food extravaganza with a total of 28 stations and I couldn’t make up my mind on what to try first. Thankfully, I managed to try almost everything and I decided to compile some of the pictures. 

I shall now introduce some of the dishes which were so good I literally flew to the moon and back, no kidding Now, get ready with a handkerchief to wipe away those drools!
