14 Things in 2014

Image
1. This year, I received my first ever invitation to attend media launches and food reviews. Subsequently, I also had the opportunity to work with a few brands (like Adidas and Domino's) through PR agencies. 


2. If 2013 has been quite dry in terms of wins, this year was worse. I took the pedal off from joining any contests in the last 12 months. When I join, most of the time, I lose. Haha. Nevertheless, the biggest prize this year was winning the iPod Nano. I also won another phone (budget one this time); the 5th phone I have won in the last 3 years.



3. I was on the billboards! 


4. Saw Jonathan Rinzler, Marina Mahathir and Harith Iskandar in flesh!


5. I bought a new phone cause my S2 died on me.


6. I wrote a screenplay, and I hope to make it into a short film in the coming year ;D



7. Went to Langkawi with the awesome bunch.



8. Refocusing on my Coca-Cola collection. Removed clutter from my Coca-Cola display and I hope to focus more on aluminium bottles.


Food: Epicuro, Damansara Utama (non-halal)

Image
Recently went to Epicuro at Damansara Utama to have a 3-in-1 birthday celebration lunch. I know too many friends whose birthday falls on December.



Free candies on our table, all prepped for Christmas season!


Fish & chips. Everyone was practically going crazy about how good the fries was, instead of paying attention to the fish. The fries were so likable  that some of us ordered a bowl of fries after that lol.


My spaghetti carbonara, which was rather disappointing considering that it looked so good for food presentation. It was the salty kind of carbonara, not my favourite kind - I love my carbonara fragrant and tasty with cheesy cheese


Pork Chop. Good!

Grilled prawns with linguine and roasted nori (seaweed) which tasted like... carbonara served with prawns instead of ham or bacon. Prawns look good and taste good.


Lotsa, lotsa bacon. And eggs with bread.


Chicken sandwich. Surprisingly good. 
Most of us didn't order any drinks because y'know, drinks ain't cheap and t…

The Mobile App to Solve All Your Parking Worries is Here!

Image
KLites can finally breathe a sigh of relief because there's now a mobile application that is here to solve all our parking worries. Hate long queues at the autopay machines? Worry about losing your ticket? Have problems finding parking? You'll love this app. Keep reading.


I had the opportunity to attend ParkAide's grand launch today at Intercontinental Hotel. It feels good to be able to witness history in the making.



ParkAide Mobile (M) Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with Secure Parking Corporation Sdn Bhd introduced the first-of-its-kind initiative for the parking industry in Malaysia: the ParkAide mobile app, a ticketless parking solution.

Food: Don Kaiten Japanese Restaurant, Klang Parade

Image
Had the opportunity to go to Don Kaiten to try out the Japanese food. The restaurant is most famous for their sushi. Went there with HF and Shanon.



It was my first time at Klang Parade. There weren't many people hanging around the mall but even so, Don Kaiten managed to attract quite a number of customers during lunch hour.



Current promotion - sea eel!


At Don Kaiten, you will be given a sachet of green tea if you ordered hot green tea.


There is no need to keep calling the waiter to refill the green tea for you because you can actually refill the hot water yourself at the table you are seated at.



Itadakimasu!


HF's donburi anago set. Quite generous amount of sea eel given here.



Very fresh salmon and tuna. 


Egg crepe maki


Egg crepe handroll

This was one of our favourites that day. Don Kaiten boasts of making their own egg crepes. The combination of the ingredients in the egg crepe maki and egg crepe handroll went well with each other. I also liked the fact that I could use my hands to…
