FIM Asia Supermoto Championship 2016 – Round 3 Recap (Angeles City, Philipines)

It’s been two weeks since we concluded the third leg of this year’s championship in the Philippines and we are now gearing up for our fourth and final round that’s set to take place this December 17th and 18th at Stadium Shah Alam, Malaysia. But before that, let’s take a moment to recollect all the action and drama that went down in Round 3.

Riders at the starting line!
The venue was the prided recreational sport of Angeles City – Bayanihan Park. The track was rather unorthodox as the “tarmac” section was converted from the park’s basketball and tennis courts while a slippery field of uncut grass played the role of the ‘dirt’ section. The very narrow track was interspersed with sharp corners and grassy dividers. All of this daunted the riders with a very challenging race ahead but they weren’t Asia’s best Supermoto racers without reason, and they took the challenge head on. Hordes of Supermoto fans and curious onlookers flocked in over the weekend to witness the high-paced spectacle.

Perodua Bezza Test Drive (Review)

The Malaysia car market is once again getting more exciting thanks to the newly launched Bezza by The Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sendirian Berhad (Perodua). This is just like the time when Perodua launched the B-segment Myvi back in 2005 and it has been a big hit ever since. At almost 10 years later, Perodua's A-segment Axia replaced Myvi as the highest selling car in Malaysia.

So here comes the Perodua's first EEV sedan which sits on the Axia’s platform – Bezza. It's a compact sedan that competes directly with the Proton Saga. Come to think about it, someone could fork out another 20-30k for a larger Japanese sedan such as the Toyota Vios, Honday City or Nissan Almera. So the question here is; will Malaysian want to go for the Perodua Bezza especially the top of the variant at almost RM51k? Let's find out.

PUMA Reveals evoTOUCH – The Lightweight Leather Boot

PUMA has launched the all new evoTOUCH, a leather football boot with unrivalled control and exceptional touch. PUMA’s evoTOUCH is new to the Global Sport Brand’s football boot category, designed for playmakers like Cesc Fàbregas, Marco Verratti and Santi Cazorla who will wear this boot on- pitch from the start of the new season.

PUMA’s evoTOUCH is set to shake up the field of leather football boots; offering a lighter and faster solution for players that are looking for a lightweight and innovative boot combined with the benefits of the classic leather material. This boot has a unique construction, which PUMA engineered by taking the concept of touch from the inside out rather than starting with the moment of contact with the ball. PUMA’s innovation team focused on what the foot needs and doesn’t, before working on the upper. The result is a boot that enhances and encourages the creative playmaking that puts footballers such as Fàbregas, Verratti and Cazorla at the top of the game.

Hasbro TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars Victorion Series Pack (Review)

I am a fan of TRANSFORMERS toys and I have been collecting the Combiner Wars line ever since they released the first wave of Combiner figure for Superion. So right now, the first ever female TRANSFORMERS Combiner figure is finally here.

Victorion box art looking pretty simple. The size of the box is huge but I do prefer this kind of packaging rather than having them separately on different cards and boxes.
Victorion is the first Fan-Built Combiner. Through voting in the TRANSFORMERS app, fans voted on whether the team would be Autobot or Decepticon characters, their vehicle modes, what the Combiner robot's special power would be, and the name of this Combiner character. Victorion is also featured in the comic TRANSFORMERS IDW Generation 1 continuity which features most of the released Combiner Wars figure.

Dim Sum & Co at Publika, KL (Review)

Growing up, dim sum has been a part of my life. I consumed eat in the morning for breakfast and late at night for supper. I still remember there's this coffee shop near my house in Labuan where I used to have my dim sum and my dad will order a few bottle of beer. That's beer and dim sum for me back then. Now, as I am residing in KL, it's not easy to find a place where I can have dim sum and beer at the same time. However, I have recently found a place nearby which served both dim sum and beer – Dim Sum & Co.

Nothing beats having a cold beer with my favorite dim sum on a weekday evening
 It’s dim sum joint first and bar second. While Dim Sum & Co shares the same premises as The Beer Factory Express, which operates from 4pm onward to cater to the happy hour crowd, dim sum is the focus of the kitchen – dim sum is served all day at this cozy establishment.

The Benefits of Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats #PowerOfTwo (Review)

There's plenty of health benefits of oats if consumed regularly and it's proven by many researches in the world. It can may help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, reduces cholesterol level, lowering blood pressure and many other benefits.

It's a known fact but most of us find it a hassle to prepare oats on a daily basis and some just decided to go for the not so healthy option such as nasi lemak, bak kut teh, curry noodles, sweet cakes, etc that are convenient to purchase. Some don't even like the taste of oat, well oats can be tasty too if you really know how to prepare it.

Well, here I have a new product called the NESTLÉ OMEGA PLUS® MILK WITH OATS and its preparation is very simple. We can now manage our cholesterol anytime, anywhere with a delicious milk-based oats beverage that combines the power of two cholesterol lowering agents – the action of Acticol® (from Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk) and Beta-glucan (from oats) in a convenient sachet.

Big Boy Special in celebration of Father's Day @ La Casa, Mont' Kiara

Last month, I was invited for the food tasting session at La Casa for the Big Boy Special in celebration of Father's Day. Stepping into La Casa for the very first time, it gives me a sense of cosiness and a friendly environment. They serve Italian and Western cuisines as well as offering handmade pastry, cakes, cookies and coffee as well.

Located at Verve Shops Mont' Kiara, La Casa is a cosy, warm and comfortable venue to dine in.
Even on a weekday evening, La Casa is filled with hungry diners and for some who just want to hang out with a couple of drinks.

Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats Improve Heart Health and Reduce Cholesterol

On the 24th of May, I was at the One World Hotel in Bandar Utama for the launch event of Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats. We are so pampered by the variety of food in Malaysia all thanks to our multicultural identity and some of these foods can lead to heart diseases if we did not control the intake. Now we can power up our hearts with Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats; the first-in-market combined action of two naturally-derived cholesterol-lowering ingredients, Acticol ® and Beta-glucan.

From L-R: Model, Cher Siew Wei (Corporate Wellness Manager, Nestlé Malaysia), Khoo Kar Khoon (Communication Director, Nestlé Malaysia), Ng Su Yen (Business Executive Manager, Milks, Nestlé Malaysia), Chew Soi Ping (Executive Director, Sales, Nestlé Malaysia), Chris Chan (Consumer Marketing Manager, Nestlé Malaysia), Alesha Mah (Brand Manager, Nestlé Malaysia), Evelyn Yoong (Innovation and Renovation Manager, Nestlé Malaysia) & model.
It was scientifically proven that only Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats has Acticol® which is naturally derived from plant sterols can block cholesterol from entering the bloodstream. It works simultaneously with Beta-glucan from oats that binds with cholesterol in the gut and removes it from the body.

Corporate and Permium Gift Supplier in Malaysia

There was once when I was covering an event, my phone battery went flat and I did not have any battery bank nor I brought my phone charging cable with me. It was quite frustrating as I need to get my phone working in order to update whatever important highlights from the event. The worse scenario is that I try to find the location of the event and I couldn't find it since I cannot contact the PR person to guide me to the location.

Sometimes I blame myself for not making sure my phone battery is 100% before I head out but sometimes it's inevitable especially when I was out whole day. My whole point is, I need a powerbank. Not just any powerbank, but a good one that can charge my phone a few times on a single charge of the powerbank. One good example is the DG-100, dual USB high performance slim power bank made with metal material. It is fitted with genuine 8,000mah Lithium Polymer battery which definitely can charge my phone several times.

The Largest Replica LEGO Millenium Falcon at LEGO Star Wars Day

On May 3rd, I was at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort for the launch of the most iconic spaceship in from the Star Wars movie – the LEGO® Millennium Falcon. Dan and Chris Steininger, the father-son Master Builder duo from The LEGO® Group who together with help from LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort guests, have been steadily building the largest replica of the LEGO® Millennium Falcon using more than 200,000 LEGO bricks.

My first time visiting LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. It has always been one of my wishlist place to visit when it was opened back in September 2012.
The build started 3 days before the launch and after nearly 30 hours, the last brick has been placed on the iconic spaceship. LEGO Star Wars' Days at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort are having activities for the entire month of May — visitors can view the LEGO Millennium Falcon, alongside the two replicas of the LEGO TIE Fighters which have already been built by the Resort's own Model Builders.
