Remember the one metre tall roti tisu I waxed lyrical over during a recent trip to Malaysia?
Grab Your Fork reader, Winnie, did. She was so intent on hunting down this gravity-defying spectacle she printed off several of my Malaysian posts and packed it in her luggage for a holiday to Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
"My husband and I trekked to Petaling Jaya for a late dinner on January 3, 2011, armed with colour printouts of your blog entries. We received a number of curious looks from the workers there, but not knowing what things mean in Malaysian, I simply pointed at the photos of mee goreng and the 1m roti on your blog to the waiters.
"The waiter was stunned to say the least, then slowly picked up my printouts and looked at them in awe. I explained to him I found their restaurant on the internet via your food blog. He gave us a shy smile, pointed at the guy who was holding up the 1m roti on your blog, and said, "This is me".

"Later during our meal, he brought several of his other workmates to look at my crumpled printouts, and triumphantly pointed at the photo of himself. By the time we left, we couldn't help but unstaple my stack of papers and left him with the section on their restaurant, Kayu Nasi Kandar. He excitedly asked me, "Can I show my manager?" and we told him it's on the internet and left them with your blog address.
"It was a great evening for my husband and I. Not only did we have a scrumptious and authentic meal (not to mention very economical!) - all thanks to your blog - but I think we also made a man very proud of his own work. So I wanted to thank you, for sharing your experiences which allow us all to spread the food of love all around."
Now that's a heartwarming story I had to share!
And did Winnie get her 1m roti tisu?
Grab Your Fork reader Winnie, and the 1m roti tisu
You bet she did!
Thanks so much Winnie for your email, and allowing me to publish it on Grab Your Fork. Your email made my week.
If you have a story to share about a Grab Your Fork post, then let me know. I'd love to hear it!
