Putien Eel Festival @ PUTIEN 莆田, Gurney Paragon Mall

It is the new quarter again and PUTIEN just recently launched their new promotions and this time they are featuring the live eel cooking in conjunction with PUTIEN Eel Festival. You will get to enjoy not only the best taste of eel but also the freshest because all ingredients are freshly flown-in by Putien.

Eel has been a popular dish among Asians and Unagi is the most common Asian's favourite from Japan. Little did we know that we can also cook eel in Chinese style and it has been implemented by PUTIEN Malaysia. 


Special thanks to PUTIEN Malaysia for inviting us bloggers to try out the new menu.

Basically, there are two ways of cooking the live eel, but worry not because they won't do it in front of you. 
This ensures the freshness of the eel and also it gives you the freshest taste of eel so you can enjoy it completely. 


1. Pan-fried Live Eel on Hot Plate 铁板香煎活鳗鱼
(RM79.90)
This way of cooking eel not only you can taste the freshness of the fish but also removes the fishy taste and leaves you with the fragrant of char-grilled on the outer later of the fish.
The eel itself is quite chewy and then you can further squeeze some fresh lemon juice onto it to make it taste more refreshing and makes it more delicious too. Everything will be prepared from the kitchen so you don't have to worry about it.
I personally prefer this way of cooking eel and it is great if we can go with a glass of wine / beer with this dish.

2. Live Eel Cooked in Natural Spring Water 泉水现煮活鳗鱼
(RM79.90)

To savour eel the best way is of course to cook it under clear water. You will get to taste not only it's freshness but also you will get to watch the live cooking in front of you.
Worry not because they will not kill the eel in front of you, they will prepare everything and only do the cooking beside your table like a tableside service.
The fresh eel was cooked under the spring water that harvested from nature spring and that is how the locals Putien enjoy it. 
They will only cook the eel for 14 minutes, and that's the best timing to ensure you a chewy and smooth texture of the eel and also it does not lose its nutrients. 

Also, PUTIEN will add some salt and herbal to make the soup even nicer when it is served.
I would say that the soup is slightly sweet and you can tell how good the eel is when it is freshly served to you.

Also, we had some of the all-time favourites from local market.
The Iced Bitter Gourd(RM12.90) served with honey, my favourite and it is also the best appetizer.

Braised Pig Intestines(RM18.90) is also the best seller with PUTIEN's cooking style where they wash it thoroughly for 3 hours and then use 12 types of spices to braise it.
Not only the pig intestines here are tender but also it completely eliminated the awful taste of it.

Cold Pork Trotters Jelly(RM15.90)

Stir Fried Yam (RM20.90)
Love it as you can taste the yam and it is crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Deep Fried Chicken with Garlic

A must when you visit Putien Malaysia, the Spinach in Supreme Stock.

Stir Fried Chilli Clams

As a token of appreciation to all PUTIEN customers, PUTIEN Malaysia is now serving their homegrown longan imported directly from China to all customers.
It is available in all outlets and stocks are limited, so don't be hesitate and head over to any Putien to try it now.

Penang's First VR Games Experience @ The Illusion, Penang M Mall.

As technology advancing rapidly these days, Virtual Reality(VR) is the current trending thing which WOW people with an all-new experience and capture the market with all sorts of devices. 
VR Tech is still pretty fresh to the Malaysia market and not many people have experienced it personally yet. Some people may have heard of it but due to high cost and space limitation that people are so reluctant to buy one.

With The Illusion now available at M Mall Penang, VR Games is now introduced to Penangites with all the exciting games available. 
The Illusion is located on the 1st floor of M Mall, the same floor with the wax museum. It is quite hidden in one corner so you may need some time to locate it or you can just ask around the mall to find it.

VR Games is the Virtual Reality game where you are required to wear the headgear and carry the screen on your head, your eyes will also be covered with speakers to enhance the experience. Then you will be brought to the game room and that's where you will be playing the VR Games, all will be arranged and prepared by the staff and you will also be guided along with the game.
The Illusion is by far offering the cheapest VR Games in Malaysia yet, unlike others in Genting and Kuala Lumpur. As we can from the menu there are a total of 5 games available and every each one are challenging and scary at times.

恐龙突袭队 2 Dinosaur Command 2 (2 - 3 people)
妖鬼迷藏 The Monster Hide & Seek (2 people)
地下室逃脱 Escape From Basement (1 people)
西部牛仔:左轮之魂 Cowboy Town (1 people)
高空独木桥之命悬一线 Wooden Bridge (1 people)

You will be guided by the staff on how to operate the devices and also when you are having difficulties during certain stages. Some of the games are quite challenging so people might get stress up when they are unable to go through those stages. 

This is exactly how you look like when you are fully equipped. Don't have to worry if you are wearing glasses because the devices are adjustable and can fit you perfectly. 

There are some games that require at least 2 players so you can enjoy it with your friends and family.
You won't be able to see each other in the game but you can see shadows of each other though. 

You may refer to some of the live videos records from below link if you are interested to see our 

Nevertheless it was a great experience and it was really fun to play with your friends.
Now I'm hoping that they will bring in other exciting games as soon as possible since there are only 5 games available for now.

Feeling thirsty? There are drinks available so you can grab your favourite bubble milktea, fruit tea and etc from their cafe. There are selections of refreshing drinks available for you.


Nevertheless it was a great and exciting first experience with VR Games and I will definitely go back for more games, hope that they will update more games to their database so we get to try more.
