Winners of the inaugural Selangorlicious! Foodster Blogging Competition went home with a smile as their entries won them cash and other prizes.
Hari Raya is sweeter this year for full time blogger Eddie Azman Samsuddin, 42, who goes by the identity ‘Cakap Niaga’ as he was crowned the ‘Foodster of Selangor’. The first prize winning entry ‘Ayam Kampung Goreng dan Gulai’ was mouth-wateringly descriptive.
“Honestly, the winning blog entry isn’t my effort alone. Cakap Niaga is a team effort and I’ve won this with my co-partner, Otai with the help of a few others,” said Eddie.
When asked, the blogger admitted that they never expected to win, much less winning the first prize. “The winnings will be shared with my partner and I intend to buy a good camera to replace my old and trusty RM100 camera,” said Eddie with a happy laugh. Cakap Niaga takes home RM5,000 in cash and two holiday packages at the Sepang Gold Coast Resort and Hotel Grand Dorsett Subang.
