The Rice of Yok Man

Chinese New Year is just weeks away and I bet all of you are eager to celebrate this wonderful new year by collecting a lot of ang pao. So,  what is the most anticipated food for you during Chinese New Year?
Keropok (prawn cracker) with acar?
Spicy dried cuttlefish?
Homemade cookies?

As for me, I'll be looking for Barbecue Meat Slices (肉乾 - Bak Kua / Bak Poh)
There are many good brand of meat slices in Malaysia and the CNY season is always their peak seasons of sales. As their strategies to increase their sales, these meat slices processing company will promote their products by all means.

Recently I come across this meat slice brand which uses "Yok Man" (similar to the Kung Fu master, Ip Man) as their business's mascot. They even created 2 very creative animations with Yok Man!

Yok Man 1st Video (2011)

Yok Man 2nd Video (2012)

I really enjoyed both the animation and I really hope I'll be able to do something similar in the future.

Anyway, in conjunction of their promotions this CNY, they will be giving away free 500g meat slices to those who participate in their "Legend of Wing Heong"'s MV.
Here's what you need to do,

  1. Take a photo/artwork (preferably landscape/horizontal) or create a video clip (less than 5 sec) which is related to the lyrics of the  "Legend of Wing Heong"'s MV .
  2. Email your creations to
  3. 30 of the most creative submissions will be edit & compile into the song's MV and win a 500g packet of Dried Meat.

Here's our version of Yok Man's fury!
