Its a curry war!!

Imagine telling the Swiss not to cook their fondue at home!

"What began as a quarrel over the pungent aromas wafting from one family's kitchen has bubbled up into Singapore's spiciest protest movement, with 40,000 people set to express their national pride this weekend by cooking curry."

There has to be more to this story; considering the undercurrent of resentment in Singapore regarding new immigrants from China I'm surprised the local court ruled in their favour.

Re: Its a curry war!!

WTF ?

"Marcellina Giam, the mediator, eventually ruled that the Indian family could only cook curry when the Chinese family was not at home."

Outrageous.

Unacceptable.

SR - Perhaps you should hold a local protest in support and invite a horde of EFfers to support you. I don't think I have ever had an SGP curry...

You hit the nail on the head. The influx of immigrants have caused alot of tension back home and this piece of news really doesnt help relations.

Guess what I am cooking this Sunday?
