Singapore Blog Awards 2015 Finalist

This is the fourth year that Johor Kaki is participating in the Singapore Blog Awards (SBA).

Why is Johor Kaki in the Singapore Blog Awards (SBA) again?

Because, the work I hope to do is far from done. In fact, it has become more urgent.

Just yesterday (on 15 Jun 2015), I received sad news that another heritage food hawker had passed on due to old age. His life's work was not recorded and will soon be forgotten.

Along with the passing of our pioneer hawkers is the gradual (some say rapid) decline of our cherished heritage food culture.

A key factor is that local hawker food is getting less popular with the young. Some said they have never been to a hawker centre before.

Without a new generation of customers, hawker food will surely decline further.

It's a reality that we need to face up to, and take action.

Alone and with little resources, there is not much that I can do to help. But as a blogger, I could help encourage more young bloggers to blog about hawker food. When more young bloggers blog about hawker food, more youths will visit hawker centres.

Peer influence is powerful.

As the annual Singapore Blog Awards attract many young bloggers, I hope that my blog's involvement can help raise interest among young bloggers about hawker food blogging.

I hope that you can help me encourage more young hawker food bloggers, by voting for Johor Kaki blog.

Thank you for supporting my humble mission to "put every good hawker on the World Wide Web" since 2011.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
