What is Makan Mania?
Makan means "eat" in the Malay language. The word "Mania" means "a very strong interest in something which fills a person's mind or uses up all their time". Therefore, the term "MAKAN MANIA" means to have a very strong interest in eating. We are the Makan Maniacs, a group of students out to tell the world more about food, nutrition and health, as well as our homeland, Singapore.
As a Singaporean, we are very proud of our eating culture, the diversities in the different culture. Their are many different races living harmoniously in Singapore, and each has its own story to tell. In Singapore, we never worry if there is anything to eat as the country is properous due to the hardwork of our forefathers. Rather, we would worry more about what to eat as food is readily available and there is so many different type to choose from we are seldom able to make up our minds.
Obesity is a pressing problem of the present day society. Prosperity and wealth has brought more food into the household refridgerator, thus people eat more. Lack of exercise and more food has caused people to become overweight and obesity causes many other diseases like high blood pressure, heart diseases, diabetes and many more. Meanwhile we eat and savour the delicious food, we, as the Makan Maniacs, aim to educate the public about nutrition and having a balanced diet. These healthy habits goes a long way.
