How does the contribution system work?
We allow users and non-users to contribute information. For those who Join as a user, you get:
  • A Personal Profile page with you name, description, website, avatar, plus all your contribution shown here
  • All your contributions shall be logged under your account, with a POP (Popularity) score to represent the current level of contribution
  • You don’t have to key in the annoying Captcha (Verification with Picture and Characters)

How to contribute?
Recommendation. If you know of a good place which MMW Food have not covered yet, feel free to recommend it to us (or view the list of recommendation). Just fill in the Name of the Place, Specialty, Location and Others information.

Information. Visit any food venue page and you shall see an orange color Contribute Info button (right under the maroon red information box). Use this to contribute information such as location/direction, specialty, contact number, business hour, etc.

Image. If you have photos/pictures of yummy food, you can upload them to the relevant food venue. Click on the Submit Image button and provide information such as Source Name, Image Title, URL (website address if available, as we shall provide a link back) and upload the image file.

Links. If you happen to stumble upon an interesting food article, or you wrote one, feel free to click on Submit Link.

Review. Click on Submit Review to write a short review of this place. You could rate this place at the same time.

Comment. If you would drop a line or post a question or just some ranting, you could click on Submit Comment. Review is a more serious evaluation of the venue, while Comment is more free and easy.

What if I am a Food Blogger?
We always believe MMW Food could not be the only place to review yummylicious food, and a lot of creative bloggers would very much like to create their own food kingdom as well. If you are a food blogger, drop us an email at info [at] malaysiamostwanted [dot] com, and we could arrange for a full archival of your food blog into MMW Food. It works something like how Google archive your blog so that other people could find it. We know how to respect your copyrighted content :)

Enhance Malaysia Food Picture Viewer

Malaysia Most Wanted Food has thousands of food pictures contributed by food bloggers around the country. We need the images to make us salivate and feel very very hungry.

We have recently upgraded the image viewer to allow full screen viewing of the image (the picture preview used to be much smaller). Search for any of your favourite food venues page, look under the Image section and you sell see a lot of small little images to give a quick preview.

Click on any of the images to see a bigger image which gives you a clearer picture.

You can navigate to the next picture by clicking on the left portion of the image itself, where it would show a Next label. Click on it to see the next picture. You can see the previous picture by clicking on the left portion of the picture. You can also navigate between next and previous and hitting the left and right arrow key on your keyboard. If you feel lazy, you can click the Play button and enjoy a slideshow of all the subsequent pictures, starting from the current one. If you want to stop viewing the images, you could either click Stop or hit the ESC key.

Sometimes it doesn’t have any pictures under the images section, because no one had contributed any images yet. You could contribute some images by clicking the “Submit Image” button.

Feel free to join us and contribute toward the Malaysia Food Community :)
