A few days ago I posted pictures of a very cool 70's blender, which evoked nostalgia and a wee bit of covetousness among some readers. Anthony of spiceblog suggested having a Readers Funky Appliance page and I thought it is a brilliant idea to celebrate our much loved kitchen appliances.
I'll run it like IMBB. Why don't you, dear readers, post pictures of your choice appliance on your site, and like IMBB, I will compile all the submissions and post the links on my blog. We will call this project Reader's Funky Appliances Fiesta though I suspect its abbreviated form, rFAFi, is easier on the tongue. Let's also be a little regimented and fix some easy-to-follow rules. Do inform me if we need to modify anything.
1. We'll celebrate rFAFi on Sunday 1 August 2004. Post on your blog on that day and send me the link by e-mail or on this comment page. The post must have the words rFAFi in the title or the subject body. Submissions can also be sent to me before the date but I will post the entire compilation on my blog on 3 August 2004 8 pm Singapore time. For readers who do not have a blog or website, I am also very happy to host your submissions on my blog.
2. The appliance must be owned or used by the person posting about it.
3. For simplicity sake, we will allow any kitchen equipment, device or gadget, as long as it is used to prepare food. Does not need to be old, retro, vintage, antique or prehistoric, but it should have some distinguishing design features that makes it well, funky. Funky in this context means "unusual", which can be subjective in itself, but we'll see where this leads to.
4. If this project takes off, I might organise similar kitchen-geekie events in future, but it will probably happen on an ad-hoc basis.
I think that is about it, see you all again on rFAFi Day.
