Im Cheah, Herukh Jethwani and Jun Chan shared their experiences of challenging street food conventions and how they overcame their fear to follow their dreams. Thank you, Tiger Beer for the chance to meet the inspiring Malaysian chefs and a sneak peek of what these uncaged heroes have in store for the upcoming Uncage Street Food Festival on 1st and 2nd December 2018.

“Food plays such an important role in our everyday lives as Malaysians, especially street food. As the Uncage platform is about uncaging your passion, we wanted to share with Tiger Beer fans not only the stories of our heroes, but their creations. These innovative dishes are the end product of challenging culinary conventions of street food and following their dreams, and we hope that this will inspire Malaysians to awaken their courage through our platform,” said Pearly Lim, Marketing Manager of Tiger Beer Malaysia.
Through its Uncage campaign, the local brewer is addressing an important question, that is, ‘why are Malaysians so afraid to follow their dreams?’ With this at the core of the campaign, Tiger Beer hopes to inspire fans to follow their dreams, even if that means defying societal expectations.
