There are many kinds of love in this world. Like Philia, the love of friendship or Eros which is of course the amorous kind. And then there's Love of Food. Remember the mantra, 'Eat to Live' not 'Live to Eat'? Well the people that we hang out with are from the later group. Gourmands and Gastro-obsessives.

Most would travel to another state just on the rumour of a good meal. Many have woken up in the middle of the night with a hankering for a sloppy Ramly burger and driven out to get it. Some have pounded the pavements of foreign countries seeking out the closest dish that resembles their favourite Malaysian street food. And nothing brings us more together than Street Food- the true soul of our nation's tummy.

So are you a street food addict? Do you feel an overwhelming outpouring of love when you eat your nasi lemak bungkus or tear into a hot crispy roti canai? Put that obsession to good use! Support the stalls that have given you gluttonous joy, the stalls that have given you something to live for.

The Love Your Street Food Campaign

Let's face the facts, how many of your favourite street stalls you enjoyed as a child are still around today? Times change, people grow old and sometimes those old school methods of preparation and cooking gets lost in the cracks of modernization. We think as foodies and fans of street food, something has to be done.

Firstly to show appreciation for an art form (because making great char kuey teow is a work of art) that has given us so much pleasure through the years. Secondly, to let these vendors and mom and pop shops know that we celebrate them. And finally, collectively we can work together to ensure our children will be able to taste this delicious legacy.

So to start it off let's give them some 'recognition'- that Street Food is something that deserves your attention, your votes and a place in their very own Hall of Fame.

The LOVE your street Food campaign will run from 1st October 2010 to 30th November 2010. During that time nominations for the Annual Foodsters' Awards will be determined by 11th October then the fun begins!

We will be running Food Crawls and challenges for foodies to check out the final nominees. This site will also be featuring the nominees in more depth so you can get to know the men and women behind the food. There will be contests, challenges, videos and all kinds of food related mayhem on this site.

During October and November too, the site will be opened for voting. Spread the work, eat the food and VOTE. A special awards dinner will be held on 3rd December 2010 for the 2nd Annual Foodsters' Awards.

The Chilli Flame Trophy

Winners of AFAs will get a Chilli Flame trophy. The chilli signifies the signature spiciness all our street food share and the flame is the heat, the 'wok hei' and the fire that fuels the everyday passion of our vendors.
