Twitter picture contest: the winner
WOW. What impressive entries we had, with submissions from all over the world; Holland, England, Indonesia, South Africa, India, Canada, Paraguay, Malaysia, USA and France. All the photos can be found on the Oxfam on Tour Facebook page.
From pub grub to sweet treats
It was SO hard to pick a winner! With so many delicious dishes – some that i’ve heard of, some that I haven’t (and now want to try!) – we wanted to give prizes to everyone.
The food came from lots of different traditions, and in lots of forms. From comfort food: pub grub in Yorkshire, England, to the special occasion: delicate sweets traditional to France, and the stand-up snack: hot and quick street food in Mumbai, India, eaten on the bonnet of a car with family and friends.
What also stood out was people growing their own food in their garden. Home grown fruit and veg featured a few times, in the true GROW spirit.
And the winner is…
Congratulations to Nuraini Zainal from Malaysia who won with her photo of the durian fruit from southeast Asia!
Nicole and Brad from the Coldplay production team chose a winner with Rachel and decided it was Nuraini’s photo and gym socks comment that did it…
The durian, or “king of fruits” is a large fruit, covered in a thorny husk, eaten by people in southeast Asia. It is loved by many, but hated by others, due to its distinctive and penetrating odour. Some say it smells like custard and sweet almonds, others say rotten onions and old socks!
Nuraini wins a Mylo Xyloto 2012 tour program and photo signed by Coldplay:
