A Jewel Unveiled Cocktail Party @ InterContinental Kuala Lumpur

Not too long ago, I was invited for the cocktail party with champagne, canapés and classical music at the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur. The main objectives of the cocktail party was also to showcase their newly renovated lobby complete with a first-of-its-kind Concierge Lounge and new reception area.



The very last time when I visited the hotel was 2 months back during the IHG Race Around The World 2012 by InterContinental Kuala Lumpur when the lobby was still under renovation. Not to brag about it but I was quite amazed with the drastic change to their lobby and reception area compared to the time when I was there for a food review at Tatsu and a video audition for Samsung.

One of the most world known beef has to be the Wagyu beef and here's a very good news, The Club Saujana Resort is putting up a Wagyu Beef Promotion at The Restaurant.

The Restaurant is actually located at The Club Saujana Resort which is further down the road after passing the main building of the Saujana Resort.

A few months back I was invited to witness the grand launch of Imavest Sdn Bhd, one of the largest Honda 3S Center in Malaysia [Link here]. Then when Honda finally launched the Honda Jazz Hybrid in Malaysia, once again I was invited to their 3S Center to test drive the newly launch car together with the Honda Insight, which is one of their hybrid car in the list as well.


We reached the 3S Center at about 11am and the rest were already there walking and looking around the center. A while later, we were brought up to the training room next to the lounge for a short briefing about the Honda Jazz Hybrid.

Anyway, here's some story behind this brilliant food place. D'Rich is a story of a group of food lovers. This group of food lovers and their love for food spurred an out-of-the-box thinking. Partnering with Master Chef Yong, they created food that's good and pleasing to the senses.

Yamagoya Ramen @ Publika

Have you been to Yamagoya Ramen? It's a ramen shop that has opened not too long in Publika. The mall itself was only opened late last year and a lot of people are now working and prefer to shop at this venue for the conveniences and food! As for this food review, Yamagoya Ramen provides a satisfying range of ramen with different flavor and offer good side dishes along with the ramen.

Pork Char Siu RM11.00
A plate of Pork Char Siu that consist of 10 slices of juicy pork meat. It is also served in some of the ramen but just in a few slices. This pork char siu was quite good as the slices were actually quite thick and filling.

London: The Summer Musical @ Amphitheatre, Sunway Lagoon (Review)

I was invited to attend the Gala Premier of London: The Summer Musical on the 31st of May 2012. The musical was held at the Amphitheatre, Sunway Lagoon which was the same location for the previous musical - Peter Pan, Magical Musical and Aladdin. The only one which I didn't attend before this was only Peter Pan the Musical. Since this will be their fourth musical production, I assumed it just had to be better than the previous musicals.


Every single time when I attend the musical, it always rain or at least drizzling. This time it wasn't an excluded. I was told to be there before 6.30pm as the ticket counter will be closed at that time and so I rushed to Sunway Lagoon during peak hour but only managed to reach there about 7.00pm. Thankfully, I was able to collect my tickets and I noticed that there was a lot of others who were late for their tickets.

Petite Millie @ 1Utama Shopping Center

They said, the best thing in life is not money but it's good food and best with a couple of good company. That's why when there's a victory or achievement in something, there's always a big feast with plenty of close people invited. Do you agree? Hence, that's what the peeps in Petite Millie believes. Petite Millie is an extension of the flagship restaurant Millesime located in Menara Kencana Petroleum in the Solaris Dutamas area. Opened not too long, The Petite Millie name bears the meaning ‘Little Millesime’ and is based on the modern European casual dining, reminiscent of but not confined by the French brasserie dining concept.

Bourguignonne Style Beef Bavette (RM46.50)

The Bourguignonne Style Beef Bavette is one of their favorite main course among the customers. On the dish is the tender Angus Flank of Beef Braised with Shallot, Mushroom and Demi Glace. I personally recommend this dish to those who love their Angus beef to be nicely braised and juicy in every single bite. Though the portion might be a little too small but this is why people will always crave for this kind of dish instead of having a big piece of beef steak that is just for the sake of filling one's stomach.

Andrew Netto: Inked & Approved (Review)

On the 25th of May, I went for the Andrew Netto INKED & APPROVED stand up comedy show which is part of the PJ Laugh Fest 2012 at PJ Live Arts, Jaya One. Since it was a Friday, the traffic jam on that particular evening was more congested than usual and as a fellow Malaysian, I did not want to be late for this and so my girlfriend and I had to skip my dinner and decided to have it after the show hence I am a punctual Chinese person! :P

Our passes for the Andrew Netto INKED & APPROVED.
 We rushed straight to the PJ Live Arts and collected our ticket just in time before the show. Some were seen to be mingling outside the theatre and some were lining up to get their beverages. Around 8.40pm, all of us are called to enter the theatre and be seated. We were seated far back from the stage but thankfully the theatre hall was not big so we still can view anything that happens on stage clearly.

Machines Warehouse Sale 2012 @ Cititel Mid Valley

This morning I woke up at 9.00am-ish to rush to Cititel Mid Valley just for the Machines Warehouse Sale which is happening since yesterday until tomorrow only. I get to know this from a friend through Facebook after he posted a pictures of what he had bought from the warehouse sale. From the flier below, it looks like they are offering a lot of good value items especially for Apple users.


So my target was to get the Speck SeeThru for Macbook Pro Casing which is only from RM20 onward. When we reached there, the queue was already quite long and it took about 50 minutes until our turn to go in. Although the line is quite long but they were giving us a short brief about the drinks that we can have, the locations of the toilet and what we will be expecting when we enter the ballroom. From time to time, their staff will announce what item is already sold out and what's available.
