Daily: Educate for Love @ Fashion For Love Charity Dinner Press Conference

Last week, I had the chance to witness the press conference of an important event under the theme of "Fashion for Love". This project has a simple objective, which is to raise funds from the public through a charity dinner and support about 300 multi racial children in need.



Mr Simon Goh (Founder of Creight events) - 2nd from left and the team has already started raising educational funds and preparing towards the main highlight that will be held on the 8th of October 2017 at HGH Convention Centre. This is a great initiative towards collecting the funds for the charity dinner. 

The 12 schools have been chosen and shortlisted for this project. The children selected from these 12 schools will be using the funds collected through the gala dinner for essential schooling items such as stationeries, shoes and uniforms. Through this brilliant initiative, unprivileged children have a chance to get proper education in conducive environment.

During the charity dinner, popular Malaysian designers will be showcasing their gowns and designs.The unique idea behind this fashion show is that the children will get a chance to participate in this wonderful glitzy event by parading together during the charity dinner and fashion show on the 8th October!



The Giving Bank, also known as www.thegivingbank.com is an online charity fundraining platform in Malaysia. A NGO and a Non Profit Organisation with a mission to connect both the charity and the public through the power of technology. The Giving Bank's online fundraising platform enables the public to pledge their support or contributions through the Giving Bank website with just a click of a mouse. Dr Janson Ang mentioned that "We try to make 'Giving' affordable and simple". Each campaign is carefully picked and selected through stringent due diligence before announcing it to the public via the website. The funds raised are channeled to the selected charitable campaigns and the public can access the website to gain information about the campaigns which generally fall into 3 main categories: Health, Education and Humanity culture.

Food: A La Carte Specials at RM 25 Nett @ Coffee House, Sunway Putra Hotel

Coffee House @ Sunway Putra Hotel recently dished out a new promotion of their A La Carte Specials, starting 1st August 2017 to 31st December 2017. This restaurant has a relaxing ambience and is extremely spacious. It has a perfect setting for friends' gathering or even family get together.

The new A La Carte Specials menu is extensive and comes with a wide selection of local as well as international delights to choose from. You'll be spoiled for choice choosing which to have. What attracts me the most, is the price of the meals which is set at ONLY RM 25 nett per person and comes with dessert plus tea/coffee. 

Some of the highlights and favourites of the menu are as below:




Spaghetti Aglio E Olio with Prawns 
This spicy pasta is appetizing and comes with 2 huge prawns. With some cheese sprinkles as a topping, this was one of my favourite!



Nasi Lemak Gunung Berapi
Nothing beats a hearty meal of our local delights! For this, I love the sambal which comes with two huge prawns as well. The fried chicken and the fragrant coconut milk rice is definitely a perfect combination for a lovely lunch.



Homemade Classic Burger
With an option of chicken and beef, this burger is extremely filling. Personally, it was good for sharing as the portion is quite huge. I'm sure no one can resist the juicy beef patty topped with some cheese and a sunny side up.



Lobster Cantonese Noodles



Hainanese Chicken Rice



Fried Noodle 'Mamak Style'



My Chicken Chop
Deep fried till crispy golden brown, this chicken chop is absolutely delightful. Drizzle the black pepper sauce all over the chicken and enjoy!

Food: Japanese Delights @ Kazumi Japanese Cuisine, Hotel Bangi Putrajaya

Occasionally, I get cravings for fine Japanese cuisine and I recently came across one restaurant which offers amazingly authentic Japanese food. Kazumi Japanese Cuisine @ Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya has a cosy and comfortable dining area, perfect for family and friends gathering. We were there to try out the all new Fusion Menu which had an interesting twist to the ordinary Japanese cuisine.



 

The spacious and beautifully designed seating area


The fresh items on display behind the counter

FUSION MENU
MAINS


Chirashi Sushi (Regular- RM 69; Premium- RM 99)


This reminds me of the Poke Bowl, except that this one is served in a glass. It is made up of imported sashimi and seafood slices, which is layered with vinegared rice. This is also served with a glass of miso soup :)


Fire & Ice (RM 69)


Tasty soft shell crab sushi with assorted sushi for your enjoyment. The sashimi slices on the sushi was absolutely fresh and of high quality.


Sushi On Rack (RM 49)



The sushi served on this beautiful rack is obviously too pretty to be eaten. With dainty and cute shapes, this gorgeously crafted sushi by the Chef are extremely good as well.



Flying Noodles Inaniwa Udon (RM 49)
I was extremely amazed and excited to find out that they serve this unique delicacy here. I have previously seen in photographs of this flying noodles. For this, it's basically cold noodles from Akita Prefecture served with salted egg sauce.


Surf  & Turf (RM 99)





A platter filled with Teppanyaki beef, deep fried prawn in light batter, deep fried chicken in bread crumbs, potato salad and grilled mackerel. The beef was my favourite, I could even finish the whole plate of it myself as it is grilled to perfection, tender and yet juicy at the same time.



Kushi Yaki (RM 99)
Assorted grilled meat and seafood on skewers

DESSERTS



Shingen Mochi (RM 18)
Raindrop jelly served with soy bean powder and brown sugar. This is absolute bliss and I really enjoyed the smooth texture of this jelly. The jelly itself is tasteless but if eaten together with the soybean powder and some brown sugar, it's perfect!

Kazumi Japanese Cuisine

Operating Hours: Tuesday-Sunday

Daily: Jom Makan Malaysia with UberEATS!

Malaysians rejoice! The popular ridesharing app, Uber has recently launched another interesting idea for Malaysians. The launch in Malaysia marks another milestone for UberEATS, which is presently in 27 countries and over 100 cities globally. Shri Chakravarthy Gopalakrishnan, General Manager of UberEATS (Malaysia & Singapore) said, “We are delighted to announce that UberEATS is now live in Malaysia! At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to bring Malaysians more choices at the touch of a button. This time, we are bringing consumers, restaurant-partners, and delivery-partners together in a digital marketplace celebrating Malaysia’s great cuisine and love of food. Using the power of Uber’s technology, we are going to help Malaysians enjoy the right food they want, right now - at the touch of a button.”


With their hectic urban lifestyles, Kuala Lumpur foodies will no longer need to brave traffic, fight for parking, or line up in queues to enjoy the wide array of foods, beverages and desserts from over 200 restaurant partners available on the UberEATS app at launch. Shri said, “With UberEATS, Malaysians can now tap a button and enjoy their favourite meals with comfort and convenience. We want you to be able to eat what you want, when you want. Whether you’re at the park, exploring the city, or coordinating dinner from your desk - find what you’re craving, tap a button, and we’ll handle the rest.”

Initial restaurants on the app comprise a mix of Malaysian favourites along with other Asian and Western delights from Kuala Lumpur-based restaurant partners. Among the restaurant partners currently active on the platform are Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa, Inside Scoop, Sitka Restaurant and Mikey’s Original New York Pizza.



UberEATS will begin serving KL neighbourhoods, in the Kuala Lumpur central business district, Bangsar and Damansara Heights from 9.00am to midnight, seven days a week; with plans to grow quickly and in the near future. Payment will be made through credit and debit cards, with an initial delivery time of 35 minutes. There will be a RM5.00 delivery fee and no minimum order. Additionally, UberEATS Malaysia has worked closely with JAKIM to ensure its delivery methods address concerns over halal requirements.

UberEATS also provides another avenue for delivery partners at more times of the day. “Uber’s technology aims to make things better for all, and UberEATS is no exception. With this rollout, we are also creating flexible earning opportunities for more Malaysians who delight in connecting people with their food,” added Shri.
