In this world, there are people with national pride… And then there’s Faye and Rachel, who take it to the next level.
Do you remember the Malaysia Airline Flight 370, which went missing back in 2014? Well, after that incidence, these two ladies were fed up from all the negativity & hate that their beloved country (Malaysia) was getting… So, in effort to better unify their diverse nation, they created a movement called The Rojak Projek, where they traveled to every region in Malaysia to make colorful portraits of people by using FOOD as the ART.
Over the last 3 years, they have already made 540 food portraits around Malaysia, and they are wrapping up on their 550th to honor Malaysia’s 55th birthday coming up in a few weeks.
Faye and Rachel’s story is one of the most innovative and impactful I’ve witnessed. They are opening so many doors for the togetherness of Malaysian people, as well as sending a positive message to the outside world — and I’m happy that I got to experience it first hand.
To end this script on an unrelated note… I LOVE MALAYSIA!!!
