Red Box & Green Box Karaoke Media Night 2016

I'm really happy whenever I am recognized as part of the media team sometimes, especially when it comes to events like Media Appreciation Night of those companies who you have supported from time to time.
It was such a great pleasure to be invited by the management team from Red Box & Green Box Karaoke to attend to their recent Media Night that held in Red Box Gurney Plaza

Many thanks to Red Box for extending the invitation, it was indeed an excited night filled with fun and laughter.

To make this year's Chinese New Year even greater, Red Box & Green Box Karaoke celebrated it together with their 16th Anniversary being in Malaysia. The management also thank the medias for all the supports throughout these years by organizing this Media Appreciation Night for all the medias. 

There were food and lucky draw prizes prepared for all of us.
It was a sumptuous dinner and the prizes were grand and amazing.

Buffet food are usually attractive and looks really yummy. However, it is not a good practice for wasting food. Red Box also advised their customers not to waste food, only take what you need and what you can finish.

[Kuala Lumpur] Hokkaido Ramen Santouka @ Pavilion KL

There is nothing greater than a bowl of al-dente and bouncy ramen with some thick and rich broth for a meal, and all comes possible when you dine at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka located at the Tokyo Street (6th floor) of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka was a surprise catch when I was walking around Pavilion's Tokyo Street area while hunting for lunch many years back. I remembered I can smell a very strong fragrant when I was walking around Tokyo Street and seriously attracted to find out where it came from.
It turns out to be a rather normal looking Ramen Restaurant that is located right beside the famous Suki-Ya Steamboat Restaurant

During my recent visit to Kuala Lumpur, I've dropped by at Pavilion and decided to go for lunch at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka to ease my ramen craving. I was there in the late afternoon hence the restaurant wasn't too crowded.

When I flipped through the menu, I was really attracted by this special dish on the menu. It was Awase-aji Ramen that looks really attractive to me.
There are 3 types of broth in Hokkaido Ramen Santouka which are Shio, Shoyu and Miso Soup. What's special in this Awase-aji Ramen is the special combination of all three ShioShoyu and Miso in one bowl of ramen.
The combination of the soup made a bowl of rich and thick broth that smells awesomely heaven when it arrived on my table! The bowl of ramen also came with sides of 2 perfectly cooked Japanese half boiled eggs, some crunchy bamboo shoot slices and 2 pieces of smooth and juicy pork Char Siew.
I was really surprised by the portion of this Awase-aji Ramen that also came with a bowl of white rice and a small cup of tea. The rice serves as the purpose of when customers finished their bowl of Ramen and there is still broth left, you can pour the rice into the broth and continue to enjoy the dish until you finish it. But honestly, the whole set was a bit too much to me even I'm a big appetite person. I couldn't really finish the rice after the ramen. The tea was perfect after our big ramen meal that it smoothens our stomach and great to end the meal.
You can also order desserts like green tea ice cream or mochi after your meal if you have space left in your stomach.

Enjoying a hearty meal can be as simple as this, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is in Pavilion for a few years and still running fine. I do hope that I can visit this ramen shop whenever I drop by in KL again.

Parmanands Tailor Penang | Perfectly Fitted & Affordable Tailor Made Clothes in Penang

After my first visit to Parmanands Tailor Penang, I paid my second visit to the same place just to get myself fitted for a set of suit & trouser for certain occasions.
Parmanands Tailor has since then became the first tailor that came into my mind whenever people asked me about formal clothes.

I would really suggest them to Parmanands Tailor instead of going for brands because other than quality assurance, you can never find any other better prices that can offered by Parmanands, not any other tailor that I have came across so far.

In Parmanands Tailor, they have all sorts of fabrics to fit customers' requirements. Whether is it wool or cotton, they have a sorts of fabrics available in store that there must be some that you would like them.

And of course, everything comes with a price, if you are looking for high quality fabrics, the price would be charge accordingly, but nevertheless, it is the skills of the tailors that matter most when it comes to tailor made clothes. You don't want to fit yourself in a oversized suits nor over-tight suits either.
