《妈妈好 Supermum》Special Screening by Halabo @ GSC Queensbay Mall

Late actress Datuk Lai Meng left a few words before she left us.
"Supermum" is a parting gift she left for us. It is not her own story nor her biography, it is more like a message she would like to convey to all her fans.
Her final words to all Malaysians is that she hopes to get more support from all Malaysians as well as hoping to promote this movie worldwide and let more people watch it.

"Supermum" tells a story about an elder mum who fell ill and hospitalized then story begins with her four children having different past and background.
This local production is filmed by Sabah film director Bjarne Wong who fulfilled Aunty Lai Meng's last wish. There wouldn't be "Supermum" without the existence of Aunty Lai Meng. 

Very lucky of us and special thanks to Ha'labo Hair & Scalp Management, we get to catch the premier screening of "Supermum" on the 21 May before the movie went up on 30 May.

"We Care about Children"

For the past 18 years, our Ha'Labo family has adhered to our core values which is to love, share  and serve those close to our hearts. With the support received from everyone, we would like to continue to uphold  our core values by introducing our brand new charity campaign, 'We Care about Children'.
在过去的18年,我们Halabo 这个大家庭一直都相信 一个 由心而发的三大理念, ‘ 爱, 分享 与 服务’,很幸运的,今天秉持我们的信念及在座每一位的支持,我可以在这里通过大银幕向大家介绍这项 ‘我们关爱儿童’ 公益活动。

We are lucky, as we are blessed with good health and a good environment to live in. I believe every child should have access to education, food & medical care. However, we are saddened that not every child in this world is able to enjoy a life that entails such components and as such, are deprived of childhood like ours.
我和在座的每一位都是幸运,幸福的,因为我和您至少 现在已经是 安全健康成长的一个人。我相信您也 和我一样,  从小到大的基本生活需求,教育,饮食还是医疗保健 都是不愁没有的。可是您是否和我一样这样想过,在这个世界上总会有一群儿童 没有我们那么幸运,和我们的童年不能相比。

For the past years, it has been my vision for the Ha'Labo family to reach out and lend our hands to improve the lives of the children in need. With the passion for helping those in need, we have been able to provide support to many children through our charity campaigns since 2007.

With this in mind, our current campaign  'We Care about Children' is tailored to help children in need. For every Ha’Labo product or treatment purchased, Ha'Labo will donate RM 1 from your purchase to children around the world to fight against hunger, poverty & sickness. Besides, we are also providing education opportunity and medical support to a total of 101 countries with the hope that more children will be able to receive protection and education to lead an improved life.
简单来说,通过’我们关爱儿童‘ 公益活动,凡是在Halabo任何一家分店消费,购买产品或是疗程, Halabo将会从你的消费中捐出RM1 捐助 需要帮助的儿童慈善机构。就这么简单的一个步骤,我就可以一起为生活在世界各地遭受饥饿蹂躏的儿童对抗饥饿,疾病和贫困。除此之外,我们还致力于为101个国家的儿童提供教育机会和医疗支持,希望更多的儿童能够获得适当的护理和教育,藉此改善他们的生活。

In conclusion,  I hope the help extended by the Ha'Labo family can aid in providing proper education and resources for these children, and further create a safer place to live which is free from any sort of danger. Please be reminded that your kind gesture will make a huge difference to them. As every child deserves happiness, our hope is for them to stay healthy and to be able to fully live their dreams and life!

This movie is starred by some of the very senior actor & actresses in Malaysia together with a group of new stars in Malaysia. It is worth to grab your friends and family and buy tickets to support local production like this.
Of course, don't forget to bring some tissue papers with you as well if you are someone who is easily emotionally affected.

My personal opinion after watching "Supermum"?
I wouldn't want to spoil it movie and I'm not supposed to. So I would suggest you head over to the cinemas and grab your own tickets and watch it.
This local production is a family-oriented movie and suitable for a family, couple or even watch it alone.
Fulfill Aunty Lai Meng's wish and support this film today!

Dragon Gate Banquet 龙门夜宴 @ The Six Premium Cantonese Restaurant, 六鼎轩经典粤菜

The Six Premium Restaurants 六鼎轩 has been in Penang for a very long time serving big and small families, hosting private events and all kinds of dining events. 
They are well known for their variety of food and all sorts of different dining style available in different outlets. 

The Six Premium Cantonese Restaurant, 六鼎轩经典粤菜 is the one located inside Penang Times Square ground floor, do not confuse it with the one inside M Mall as they are serving different cuisine.

Steamed Garoupa Fish with Patong Sauce
Signature Pork Rib
Crispy Roasted Chicken
Deep Fried Octopus
Sauteed Crab with Garlic & Chili
Salad Oyster with Baked Cheese
Braised Abalone with Black Truffle
Sauteed Rhizome with Celery

Dragon Gate Banquet is different from our usual Chinese dining as most of our cuisine will be served dish by dish whereas this in dining style, all the food will be served together.
It is pretty convenient as you don't have to take a long time to wait for every dishes to be served to your table and at the same time you get to choose which one you want to eat first and which one you want to eat later. 

The Six Premium Cantonese Restaurant saw the opportunity and introduces this cuisine to Penangites as this is not very common and also they are the very first restaurant in Penang that serve this cuisine.
The whole cuisine is so photogenic that the moment we all saw them serving it, we took out our phones and cameras then starting to capture every moment we can, boomerang, pictures, videos, slow-mo and etc.

The serving style is so special and it is also my first time seeing this kind of serving style. It was such an eye-opening experience to see this such grand and luxurious serving style. A sumptuous meal is served right in front of your eyes.

香甜蒜味干煎大虾 Pan Fried Prawn with Garlic
The tiger prawns are really fresh and big. They were properly skewed and cooked to perfection. Even the meat has absorbed the sauce and makes prawns rather tender and flavorful.
The sauce was sweet and rather appetizing with the garlic flavour since I am a garlic lover.

特色巴东蒸石斑 Steamed Garoupa Fish with Patong Sauce
Another dish that would make you crave for a bowl of hot and fragrant rice would be the steamed fish with Patong sauce. They use Garoupa which the meat are usually tender and soft, and this fish can was just nice for 10 pax. Patong sauce is something we Malaysians would definitely love with the strong and appetizing flavours.

招牌一支骨 Signature Pork Rib
One of the top favourites of the night are the delicious and tender pork ribs on the menu.
I love the flavour of the pork ribs which was a tad of sweet and sour, it tasted quite refreshing and appetizing. You could have wanted to ask for a bowl of rice just to go with it.

经典明炉烧鸡 Crispy Roasted Chicken
Another addicting dish was the roast chicken which was quite flavourful itself without any sauce.
The chicken was well seasoned before the roast it and the flavour absorbed into the meat. The skin was thin and crispy and the meat was juicy.

酥炸七彩八爪鱼 Deep Fried Octopus
Baby octopuses was deep fried and then cook with their homemade sauce. This dish suits our Asian's appetite perfectly as it was a little bit sweet and spicy. The octopus was fried to perfection hence it was chewy yet very addictive.

避风塘炒蟹 Sauteed Crab with Garlic & Chili
Your meal will always be better when you can feast on some fresh and delicious seafood. Crab is part of the menu and this dish was really addictive especially for garlic lovers like me.

沙律芝士焗生蠔 Salad Oyster with Baked Cheese

黑松露炆鲍鱼 Braised Abalone with Black Truffle
It feels really luxurious when you are able to feast on expensive food like abalone. Even better when they braised it with black truffle and these abalones are not just chewy but also very flavourful.

淮山菇菌炒西芹 Sauteed Rhizome with Celery

So that's 9-course set menu to form this Dragon Gate Banquet. This could be great when you can enjoy these good food with your friends and family or any kind of celebrations.
