[Review] Chennai X'press @ Damansara Perdana

11:36 rebecca wong 2 Comments

I was lucky enough to be selected by HiShop to do a review on Chennai X'press at Damansara Perdana.


It is quite easy to find the place. It's located at same row as Cat Whiskers, opposite Hong Leong Bank. I'm not too sure about the parking issues during weekdays, but it's fairly easy to find parking over the weekends.


There are limited seats in the restaurant. Hence, it would probably be safer to make reservation if you are going in a big group.

Eat well, Live well with TruDtox

11:42 rebecca wong 2 Comments

How many of you have been through a detoxing program? I have done couple of times, and most of them weren't pleasant.

With all the food and water that we consume, air that we breathe - they  pesticides, pollution and chemicals that can lead to so many health problems. With our hectic lifestyle, it is getting much more challenging to make sure to keep our body healthy. Just imagine, all the toxins accumulating in your body system, and causes your immune system to degenerate, triggering the onset of degenerative diseases that eventually rob your life away.

I have and easy but efficient solution for you - TruDtox!


TruDtox is a Swiss natural and organic botanical tea that works gently to cleanse and help strengthen our body's own natural detox organs. It is made of 100% organically-cultivated herbs, flora and teas that are traditionally known to help our body detoxify. It doesn't contain harsh laxatives and as such, will not create bowel dependency. TruDtox doesn't contain senna and is classified as food by the Ministry of Health.

What are the benefits of TruDtox?
  1. Flush away toxins & waste
  2. Promote regularity
  3. Relieve digestive discomforts
  4. Promote better absorption of nutrients
  5. Improve metabolism
  6. Strengthen immune system
  7. Promote health, vitality & energy

In addition to all the benefits that it could offer, TruDtox offers a cost effective and convenient way to start your detox program too!
  1. You only need to consume it 2-3 times a week - or whenever you want. You can consume it 5 times a week, if you are going through a detox week.
  2. Boil the teabag in a hot pot of water and share it with your family or friends.
  3. Since your body is now healthier after detoxifying, you can save the trouble (and of course, money too...) from visiting the doctors.
Thanks to Betsy from LiveLife, I have the opportunity to experience the detox program with TruDtox.


 
I took my detox tea 3 times a week, one sachet every 2 days.


You could choose to drink the tea at night, and allow your system to cleanse properly throughout your sleep. However, I'm one of those people that would go into insomnia if I consume tea or coffee during night time; so I chose to drink it during day time.

Instead of boiling hot water, in the morning, I'd soaked my tea bag in hot water and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. It doesn't have immediate effect on me, but I would start to visit the ladies in the afternoon. It doesn't caused any pain or made my stomach felt uncomfortable when I need to go to the ladies. Also, though it contains herbs, the taste was surprisingly nice and mild. It has a hint of floral fragrance to it.

I'd highly recommend this product for any of you who like to go for a detox program. It's so mild and yet effective, and I'd definitely continue my detox with this.

It is selling at a retail price of RM29.50 for a pack of 5 teabags, and RM88.50 for a pack of 15+2 teabags. It is available in most leading pharmacies such as Caring, Watsons, Guardian, Alpha, Alpro, Healthcare, Vitacare etc as well as independent pharmacies nationwide.

It is also available online at:

Plincco: www.plincco.com
Lazada: www.lazada.com.my
Rakuen: www.rakuten.com.my

Chicago Rib House: "Feast of Ribs" Promotion @ One Utama

11:22 rebecca wong 0 Comments

I was honoured enough to be invited to a "ribs tasting" event at Chicago Rib House for their Father's Day Feast on Ribs promotion.


 
 

The moment I was inside, their mojito bar caught my eyes.


Oh, did I forget to mention we were having free flow of mojitos that night too? Guess who was a happy girl that night!


I've tried mojitos in lot of places, and hardly anyone could get them perfect. They have some killer mojitos, and I enjoyed them a lot.


The price of the mojito ranging from RM19.90 to RM 25.90.

Kiwi Mojito (RM 25.90)
Personal favourite of the night - Kiwi Mojito (RM 25.90)!

I was super hungry while snapping away all the food photos.



We were being pampered that night with all the delicious food.




I didn't get to try out all of the ribs. However, after trying 3 different flavours, my favourite was the Honey Garlic. The sweetness of the honey glaze toned down the acidity of the vinegar in the rib. Personally, I don't really fancy food that are too acidic.

I love their ribs - they were fork-tender! The meat fell off the bone easily. They uses baby back ribs which tend to be more tender, instead of normal ribs.

 
 
Starting from now till 6th of July, they are having a Father's Day promotion:


You can now enjoy 2 Full Racks of pork ribs with a choice of 4 sides (2 potato sides + 2 other sides) at only RM79.90! It is really worth the value, and do not miss this opportunity!

I took my family back to the rib house after the food tasting event, for a Father's Day dinner. We ordered their Father's Day promotion pork rib.

Bottomless - Ice Lemon Tea
We chose the Original BBQ and Flaming Kansas City for our ribs.


A shot of whisky was poured over the ribs before lighting the flame.

Flaming Kansas City
The ribs were "flaming", but in a good way - it was slightly peppery due to the black pepper in the glaze.

Original BBQ
The glaze was flavourful and you can taste the vinegar in it, but wasn't over-powering.

Both of the ribs were really tender, and we cleaned up every single bones.



Although we were allowed to choose 2 potato sides + 2 other sides, we ended up with 3 potatoes and a coleslaw.

Overall, it was a good meal and we enjoyed it a lot.

In conjunction with their Father's Day promotion, you can now vote for your favourite sauce. The winner will win themselves 1 YEAR of FREE Ribs!**

Badan Warisan Malaysia - Heritage KUL Ball

15:26 rebecca wong 0 Comments

In this digital age, everyone of us are busy playing catch up with the technologies - we tend to forget important things. I strongly believe that it's crucial for us to preserve our heritage, as these tell a story of who our ancestors were; and we are who we are today because of them. Hence, I'm glad to have given an opportunity to help spread the word of Badan Warisan Malaysia.

Who is Badan Warisan Malaysia?
They are the leading national heritage NGO with a reputation for excellence in heritage conservation services spanning nearly 30 years! It operates 3 heritage properties:
  1. The Heritage Centre and Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman in Kuala Lumpur
  2. No 8 Hereen Street in Melaka's UNESCO World Heritage Site
  3. The UNESCO award winning restoration project of Suffolk House, the 200 year old historic Anglo-Indian Georgian Mansion in George Town, Penang
How amazing!

To inspire a deeper understanding of heritage spaces to the youths and adults of today's era, Badan Warisan will be organizing a fundraiser gala event:
 
 
Themed: KUL BALL
Date: 20th June 2014, Friday
Time: 7PM
Venue: The Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Admission: Minimum donation of RM300 per invitation
 
The guests will be entertain by Datuk Sheila Majid and her daughter, Kayda Aziz, who exemplify the blend of "something old something new" theme, together with two-man group Dangerdisko. 
 
Just for your information - In 1983, a fund-raising ball was held by Badan Warisan Malaysia to help save the Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, then threatened with demolition. The initiative paid off and the hotel was saved.
 
This time round, Badan Warisan aims to recapture the spirit of the event by engaging the youth of Malaysia to be passionate about our tangible and intangible heritage.
 
Apart from the Ball, Badan Warisan will be organizing a Warisan Lab event for the public too.
 
 
Event: Warisan Lab
Date: 14th & 15th June 2014 (Saturday & Sunday)
Time: 10AM - 6PM
Venue: Badan Warisan Malaysia, Jalan Stonor
Admission: RM30 per day
 
You'll be able to get up close to other fascinating projects such as the experimental puppeteer theatre performance, Main Wayang: Hikayat Sang Kancil and a 3D digital capture of the boatmakers of Terengganu.
 
Can't make it to both of the events, but would still like to be part of this? You can still. They have a "My City My Heritage" project - an engagement project via Instragram for you to capture a part of this country which has a cultural significance to you. It could be your school or kampong/hometown or neighbourhood park where you grew up. It is a 2 weeks event, and will commence during mid-May and the instagrams will be featured on their digital wall at the fundraising event.
 
Moving forward over the next 24 months, Badan Warisan will embark on the following to create an environment to further educate and engage the younger Malaysians to be actively involved in a heritage centric culture. In line with that, the NGO plans to develop the following initiatives:
  1. CONNECT THE CULTURAL DOTS. Create an open, digital platform that links all heritage-inspired NGOs and groups throughout the nation and region to promote inclusiveness and critical engagement with heritage and cultural issues via an intergenerational spectrum.
  2. SHARE CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE. Embed within the digital platform an open-source information system of BWM's vast print archives in order to promote the sharing of educational resources virtually with all communities.
  3. FUND CULTURAL INNOVATION. Create a RM10 million Cultural Heritage Grants Programme to fund independent, private sector projects throughout Malaysia connected with building conservation, cultural mapping, capacity building and social/cultural enterprise.


As a Malaysian, I believe we should do our part in helping to preserve our heritage - be it financially or other means of support.

BWM is a registered charity, and completely independent on government.

HSBC Restaurant @ Bangsar

11:09 rebecca wong 4 Comments

HSBC? It's not a bank. It actually is a restaurant in Bangsar named "Hot & Spicy Bangsar Cuisine".

 

At first glance, I thought it's a restaurant serving Indian cuisine; but it's actually an Indian run restaurant serving Chinese cuisine.


They have both vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine on the menu.

 
Nasi Goreng Petai (Fried Rice with Petai)
The fried rice was ok, not too bad but nothing too special as well. I was disappointed to see the fried egg.


This was another disappointing dish as well. The fried egg was supposed to be served on top of the fried rice, but we requested them to separate it. The fried rice was a bit bland.

Fried Kai Lan (Fried Chinese Kale)
This was the best dish of the night - Fried Kai Lan (Fried Chinese Kale). The Chinese kale was shredded and fried to crispy, and the gravy tasted good. If I were to revisit the restaurant, I'd definitely order this dish again.

Ice Lemon Tea
Overall, the dinner was only average; and it costs of RM30 for 3 person - including 2 drinks.

Operating Hours: 11:45AM - 2:45PM; 5PM - 11:45PM / 4:45PM - 11:45PM (Sunday)
