Malaysian cuisine ambassador Shi Gongzi meets with Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia
It is said that he has always been proud of being a Malaysian. When facing Chinese, he never speaks other languages, because he thinks if could talk in Chinese, why bother to use other languages? When others meet him, they will also take the initiative to greet him kindly in Cantonese. Secondly, he often said that as a Malaysia citizen, Malaysia is dominated by Malays without questioning the facts. Only by actively participating in politics and getting to know dignitaries can we reverse the situation and do things. In addition, we must also pay attention to the education of the next generation. It is imperative to retain the inheritance tools. Regarding the wide-ranging origins of Malaysian food culture, it is the misdiagnosis of foodies who have never been interviewed abroad, not traveling to other countries, but just developing new technology as a new media to promote Malaysian food. Only by attracting foreigners to come to consumecan the economy be promoted, instead of inverting the priority and bringing people abroad, expressing self-insight to seek recognition.
In 2007, after reflecting on Malaysians’ indifference to state leaders and the politically foreseen battles, Jacky Liew added political elements with an informative food narrative and apply the way of dinner invitations to create a sensation in the “Dining with VIP”, and interacts with rulers, ministers, state parliamentarians, and foreign diplomats. Once heard complaints from their assistants, Jacky Liew’s words are like a dagger, especially when he asks questions about the current political situation, there is no room for compromise. If a writer dared to argue with high-ranking officials and dignitaries, there was nothing he dare not offend. So he has a frank and honest disclosure in his articles. Because of his aversion to intrigue and deceit in officialdom, and seeing the world’s bleakness, he finally chose to be at ease with his wife and no longer ask for politics. In fact, politics is people’s livelihood. As Laozi stated in Tao Te Ching, “ruling a big country is like cooking food”. It is like the word “饭 rice” coined by Cangjie, which is the inventor of the Chinese word. If the people is not able to earn living, they will rebellion against the country. “It is more appropriate to use it as a metaphor for the dual track of political future needs and economics.
“Dining with VIP” has met with five sessions of Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA)’s president which from Lee Sam Choon, Chen Qun Chuan, Lin Liang Shi, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Ong Ka Ting, Tan Sri Dato’Ong Tee Keat, Tan Sri Chua Soi Lek, Dato Seri Liow Tiong Lai, Dato Sri’ Wee Ka Siong and others with a total of 119 politicians.
Discussing the status of the Chinese in Sarawak
The late Deputy Minister of Housing and Sibu District Parliamentary Dato Lau Hoi Chew who has close relationship to the family of KTS Group which has connection with “Shi Hua Daily” and “Oriental Daily News” said that, this was the column that he has never seen before. It can be seen that Jacky Liew is forward-looking. The first precedent to invite ministers and parliamentarians to care about people’s livelihood in this way was also pioneered by Jacky Liew
In 1996, Jacky Liew got acquainted with Karim restaurant in aborigines of the sea in Kampung Sungai Temon, Johor Bahru. Until 2012, he was notified by the state government that the village will be arranged for the construction of the Iskandar Special Zone. The case of the indigenous status preservation of cultural heritage and the successful protection of the land of the Portuguese village that has not been moved has brought in the district legislator Xie Songqing to deal with it. Because the local aborigines have no influence and are neglected economically, although they are aborigines, due to the lack of racial political channels, the only way to preserve the aboriginal land can be through the appeals submitted by the constituency councillors. Until the death of Xie Songqing in 2019, he still worked hard to complete this task.
Shi Gongzi’s influence contributes to the tourism and entertainment industry
Shi Gongzi suggested to Deputy Minister of Tourism, Donald Lim, extended the time limit for entertainment venues and received a response from the government in October 2010.
Malaysia 2020 International Tourist Statistics
According to Malaysia Tourism Department, the number of international tourists received in 2020 was 4,332,722, an decrease of 83.4% compared to the 26,100,784 in 2019 and the revenue is RM86.14 billion. The largest tourism contributor is the ASEAN countries, accounting for 68.1% of the number of tourists (2949363). If the national policy is overcorrected, just like the metaphor of the closure of the city due to the new crown epidemic, the annual tourism income will be unfavorable, so this recommendation is made.
The Lion Sniff the Flower
The status of a gourmet is acceptable to everyone in the food and beverage industry and cultural circles, even most people abroad, agree that a Malaysian gourmet is equal to a Jacky Liew. This has become one kind of consciousness. In 2007, MCA President and Minister of Housing and Local Government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting was invited as the opening guest of a food conference. He signed “Malaysian Food Critic” on the cover of the new book he presented to Jacky Liew. He stated that he expressed his hopes and advised Jacky that, as a Malaysian gourmet, he should put “the country as the most important thing and set an example” in everything, and it was passed on as a good talk. In addition to the names of “God of Cookery” and “Gourmet”, he is also known as “King of Food”, “Prince of Food” and so on. The reason lies in his knowledge and he has detailed research of Malaysian food history. He is easy-going and polite in dealing with others, which is why everyone likes him.
It may be because of his job, he likes to get to know the office, and it is difficult for him to stay in one place and not run around. This has something to do with his nature. He will unconsciously or consciously portray himself as a suave modern and ancient hero, who likes wine and beauty, and his beauties will always be her wife. As a “wife-loving Food God”, he obeyed her words, and never fought against his wife’s intentions. He is a kind of gentle male chauvinism, love for home, and love for his wife .
It is hard to understand the job title of Jacky Liew, but it’s not the job that made him famous, but the first one to turn a restaurant review into a career in this food world since 2000. No one expected that one day, Jacky Liew switched from literature to artificial intelligence data science research.
In 2006, it entered the sauce industry and launched soy sauce and umami sauce and act as the spokeperson of the product. His career involved: scholar (cultural circles-food writers), agriculture (lecturer and consultant of the College of Agriculture), engineering (petrochemical process supplier), business (financial futures trading).
When there is too much to take care of, you can only choose your “favorite” to continue.
Those who are wise have no fear, who are brave have no barrier
But he still need the support of his wife
