Lest we forget what this Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge is all about…
The whole point about this challenge to create 30 different uses for the Royal Selangor Jelly Mould is to raise awareness about breast cancer. Sure, we’ve been having fun making jellies, panna cottas, terrines, steamed cakes and musubi. We want to celebrate life, laughter and humor with our creations.
But we must remember that breast cancer is not something to play around with. As Annie herself learned with her breast cancer scare, if you feel a lump, go get it checked out right away. Over 4000 Malaysian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and many will die from this terrible disease.
So today’s creation, a Sago Gula Melaka, is intentionally colored rose pink to highlight again the importance of breast health maintenance and getting regular mammograms when appropriate.
