Tiger Radler Launch at KL Live #TigerBeerMY #mytigerradler #mydoublerefreshment

The launch of Tiger Radler took place at KL Live on the 6th of December 2013. Tiger Radler is an all-new variant of Tiger Beer that combines the crisp and easy-drinking taste of Tiger Beer with natural lemon juice to produce a beverage that is doubly refreshing. With a distinctively cloudy look caused by its all natural lemon juice content, Tiger Radler is set to be the perfect beverage for almost any drinking occasion with family or friends since I find it to be smoother, sweet and lesser alcohol volume.



Tiger Radler is all-new variant of Tiger Beer that combines the crisp and easy-drinking taste of Tiger Beer with the zesty flavour of natural lemon juice to produce a beverage that is doubly refreshing. Malaysia and Singapore are the first two countries in Southeast Asia to introduce Tiger Radler, although Radler has already been a massive hit in Europe over the past few months.

[Sponsored Video] ASUS Fonepad with Intel Inside®

Hey guys, today I have attached a video below to share with all my readers out there. From the title above, I am sure most of you know that it's about the ASUS Fonepad but it's not just a typical video that you can normally see on television or YouTube. Take a look at the video below.


So what do you think about the video? I personally think that it has quite some comedy elements in there especially the bomb disposal man and the the asian women. Nowadays many of us are quite used to having so many gadgets or devices in our pockets and bag. The ASUS Fonepad series combines tablet capability with smartphone convenience so whenever I am playing game or watching a good movie, I can still answer important calls or reply messages. The best part, you get to save money buying one device instead of two.

My Experience at Yun Nam Hair Care

Hair loss problem might be a sensitive issue to some of us as it does to me. When people pointed out the problem to us, somehow I do feel a little embarrass. I have relatives who actually commented the lack of hair on the top of my forehead. Every time I pay a visit to the hair salon, my hairstylist had to style my hair properly to cover the area with thinner hair right above my forehead.

I do notice that I have this problem a few years back when I started working. That's not only the problem that I'm facing. My hair is the wavy hair type (I wouldn't say curly, unless you see me with an afro hair style), so combing my hair is not a simple task. Whenever I comb my hair, there's always snowing. What I meant by snowing is the dandruff that fell on the my shirt. I did try all sort of anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner but it doesn't seems working at all. At the end of the day, I just spent more money changing different brand just to make my hair dandruff-free.



Long story short, I was recommended to solve my hair problem at Yun Nam Hair Care after getting tired of trying so many methods and products. Yun Nam Hair Care is recognised as one of the best hair care brand in Malaysia, established in 1984. They claimed to use 100% natural herbs with no side effects compared to those artificial and chemical products which we can buy in our local pharmacy or supermarket.

The style of food at Plan B is Aussie-meets-New York deli, with contemporary flavours, comprising of salads, sandwiches, pastas and a huge variety of cakes. The very first time I had a red velvet cake was from Plan B bought by a friend.

Tiger Radler #mydoublerefreshment Party this Dec 6 at KL Live!

Some of you might have seen the picture below that I have posted a week ago in my Instagram account (you can follow me if you haven't, link is here). I received a white plastic box from Tiger Beer Malaysia which is filled with a 330ml bottle of Tiger Beer along with some lemons. Beer mixed with natural lemon juice to produce a beverage that is doubly refreshing named, Tiger Radler.

"When it's Tiger giving you lemons... you get double refreshment!"
Just recently, I've received another box from Tiger Beer Malaysia and there's a warning saying there's gonna be some serious refreshment inside. So I guess that I am getting the Tiger Radler in the second package.

Xia Mian Guan @ Oasis Boulevard, Sunway Pyramid (Food Review)

Last month I was invited to a food review at Xia Mian Guan in Sunway Pyramid. This Shanghainese restaurant is located at the Oasis Boulevard and it may be a little tricky place to find. It's hidden in a narrow corridor tunneling outside the mall opposite of Celcom Blue Cube.


When I first heard about the name of the restaurant, I misunderstood it as a shop that sells prawn noodles but the word 'Xia' in Xia Mian Guan actually means the summer season and is famous for their Signature Shanghainese homemade noodles even in its art and decorations.

Halloween Horror Spirits 2 @ Genting Outdoor Theme Park

A few more days till Halloween! It’s double trouble as Halloween Horror Spirits 2 returns to Genting Outdoor Theme Park. As well all know, Genting has closed their outdoor theme park to make way for the upcoming 20th Fox Century Theme Park. Well, that didn't stop them from opening it for just a short period of time for this special event.



I did not know what to expect in Halloween Horror Spirits 2 as I have not done any research about what is the horror that they are offering but I think it should be a great idea to have it in Genting at night since it's so cold up there and the outdoor theme park now looks like an abandon theme park.

First World Problems: Where to eat?

I shamefully asked myself, my girlfriend, my family, my friends and sometimes my cat, Glen - "Where to eat?" countless times. That might be one of the hardest question to answer even for myself to do so.

So this is what happened last weekend, early in the morning. My girlfriend and I were somehow craving for dim sum for breakfast but after we both have moved to Kota Damansara, we have no idea where to find any dim sum place around.



We had our dim sum breakfast at Restoran Jin Xuan Hong Kong (Kota Damansara branch) because we managed to read about it on HungryGoWhere.my and the reviews was quite good.

Old Skool Throwback with the adidas Originals ZX Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

The adidas Originals ZX collection is designed with understated styling and quality tailoring in mind, innovating classics with modern character. A pair of running sneakers, the adidas Originals ZX range is a classic throwback with a hint of contemporary street edge style that can be easily seen pairing with anything and everything - from everyday wear denims to chic skirts and dresses. 

I like the colour of this pair adidas Originals ZX. It's cool, striking and look youthful at the same time.
Kicking it 80's style with a modern-day twist, the ZX range combines textile and suede in the upper, and a breathable mesh lining with cushioning in the tongue, collar and heel. Innovations such as the ZX heel counter had just as much impact on street style as it did on the track, especially in the ‘90s.

Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday was on last Friday and again, I'm am one year older. It's hard to believe that time passes incredibly fast and even my blog is already more than five years old.

A million thanks to those who have wished me on Facebook. I really appreciate it although I would prefer to receive gifts from you guys! Just kidding.


Anyway, I think I really have not thrown a birthday party for so many years. I still remember the last time I had a so called party was about six years ago in a church retreat. It was a surprise party a few days after my actual birthday date and the funny thing was I accidentally carried my own birthday cake and place it into the fridge without knowing that it was my cake.

Hey guys, it's the Mid-Autumn Festival and it is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, during a full moon.

Honda Hybrid Family Road Trip 2013 @ Stadium Sultan Muhammad IV, Kota Bharu

I picked up the Honda Civic Hybrid last Thursday to go on the media trip to Kota Bharu for the Honda Hybrid Family Road Trip 2013 at Stadium Sultan Muhammad IV held on the 14 - 15 September. It was my first time driving such a long distance as the furthest I've driven to is Kuala Terengganu seconded by Penang.

Crystal Black Pearl Honda Civic Hybrid 1.5L
A few years back, I've test driven the Honda Jazz Hybrid and Honda Insight. At that time, Honda CRZ manual variant was not yet available for test drive. I've always admire Honda Civic especially the 1.8L VTEC model launched in 2010 but now I get to drive a newer generation of Honda Civic incorporated with the Hybrid system.

Stay Connected in Overseas with DiGi Roaming

I always like to travel to places and sometimes it’s out of Malaysia. When I am out of the country, the thing that I hated the most is not being able to keep in touch with my family and friends back home. Also, I like to keep myself updated through my social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.



Earlier this year when I was visiting Singapore with a bunch of bloggers for a MMA submit, I had activated the international roaming and Internet Roaming for just RM36 a day from DiGi. With that, I was able to post up the photo above on my Instagram even when there’s no FREE WiFi service.

Lobster Promotion @ Bali Hai Seafood Village, Kota Damansara

Hey guys, some of you might know that I am from Sabah and seafood is very popular from the place where I come from. No doubt that sometimes I will have slight demand on choosing a seafood place to go to in terms of the taste, portion and price. Anyway, there is a seafood place very near to the place I stay which is in Kota Damansara. This seafood place is called Bali Hai Seafood Village.


If you have been following my blog since August, you may have seen my Ramadan buffet review at this restaurant. It's not easy to find restaurant that offers fresh seafood nowadays especially in PJ area due to the constrain of their business space.
