U-Cafe @ Sungei Wang Plaza Kuala Lumpur ( Invited Food Tasting Session)

Saturday, March 28, 2015 2 Comments A+ a-

We attended the recent Food Tasting event organized by Open Snap at U-Cafe @Sungei Wang. We are being introduced for their new menu that will be available in the month of April. Usually, I do drop by here for lunch set and today I have the opportunity to tried out their other sumptuous menu that features mostly Local Asian cuisines.  We started off with the appetizers. Wonderfully platted at the semi buffet counter with chicken skewers, cold desserts, fruits, and fresh mint drinks.








Alfresco dining atmosphere

Glad to be here meeting up with new faces of the foodies

U-Cafe signature platter. I was looking at the menu price RM 30.90.Worth it? I don't think so. The platter is just the common fried item such as french fries, wedges, fried chicken meat, fish and vegetables rolls.

We continue with the salad and salmon fillet with mango slices. Appetizing


Here comes the main course. In total I have counted, we have almost 12 dishes of main course.. That was really impressive and we are looking at each other each time the main course is served to our table..Are we able to finish it all??


Scallops and teriyaki chicken pasta

It looks like the 'dancing' fish which I recalled from my food review in Brisik Restaurant - specializing in Indonesian food.


Hazelnut Latte was pretty good
 





Chicken Chop

Huge size of the grilled salmon

Thai Pineapple fried rice

The local favorite - Chow Kuey Teow

For spicy lovers - Curry Laksa
Butter prawn

It seems to be never ending. Here is another main course. And Finally we have the last dish for tonight food sampling - Soft shell crab with stir fried mee hon.

I love the food here especially the curry laksa, butter prawn, chicken chop and pineapple fried rice,



We have a really special dining session and thanks to Open Snap and U-Cafe for their great hospitality,

World Oral Health Day - Largest Mouthwash Rinsing Event @ 1Utama Shopping Mall

Thursday, March 26, 2015 0 Comments A+ a-




World Oral Health Day (20 March) brings oral care into the spotlight, and the Malaysian Dental Association together with LISTERINE®, Global Partner of World Oral Health Day, celebrated this globally-recognized day in a nationwide effort to remind Malaysians that good oral care is essential for good overall health. Supported by the Oral Health Division of the Ministry of Health, the campaign saw a roadshow, educational initiatives and engagement programs/talks by dentists to further spread awareness amongst members of the public about good oral hygiene and complete oral care regimes.

“It is very common for people to only see a dentist when they are experiencing pain or some other dental problem hence World Oral Health Day is a good time to remind Malaysians that good oral care matters and should be a major priority for everyone regardless of age or gender,” said Dr Chow Kai Foo, Organizing Chairman of World Oral Health Day 2015 (Malaysia).

President of the Malaysian Dental Association Dr Teh Tat Beng said, “Good oral care goes beyond a nice smile and fresh breath, as research has shown a link between oral health and general health – oral health can be compromised by a number of chronic and infectious diseases which show symptoms in the mouth. On the other hand, oral diseases can lead to infection, inflammation, and other serious impacts on overall health. For example, oral conditions can complicate diabetes while diabetes itself can result in delayed wound healing and worsening of gum disease. Also, untreated gum disease has been associated with higher risk of pre-term babies and low-birthweight babies.[1] This awareness however is lacking amongst Malaysians and hence further education is needed to ensure more people take care of their mouths as it could lead to other possible health issues.”

An indicative survey that was carried out in conjunction with World Oral Health Day recently amongst almost 380 Malaysians showed that only 31% of respondents surveyed were aware that diabetes has a bi-directional relationship with oral health and only 34.6% knew that untreated gum diseases could have an effect on pregnant women and unborn babies.



Furthermore, the survey also revealed that Malaysians do not practice complete oral care routines; in fact, 78.1% were not aware or unsure that brushing teeth alone is insufficient for good oral health as it only cleans 25% of the mouth. The survey concluded that only a small percentage (32.7%) of Malaysians actively practice a holistic oral care routine including rinsing with mouthwash.

In line with that, to promote complete daily oral care practices, global campaign partner and the No 1 mouthwash brand in Malaysia[1] LISTERINE® organised a day-long rinsing event on Saturday 21 March from 10am to 10pm at the World Oral Health Day roadshow (Highstreet Concourse, Ground Level, 1Utama Shopping Centre), which aimed to raise awareness among Malaysians on the importance of a holistic oral care routine including rinsing with mouthwash; this event was targeted to create a new entry in the Malaysian Book of Records for the “Most Number of Participants in a Mouthwash Rinsing Event (12 Hours)” and managed to garner 2,464 participants in total. The roadshow also showcased educational oral health activities for all ages and free dental check-ups.






“Brushing one’s teeth alone only cleans approximately 25% of the mouth, and this is woefully insufficient. By neglecting to practice a complete and holistic oral care routine, we are neglecting the one thing that allows us to eat, drink, smile and speak confidently; this in turn affects our health, our personal and working relationships as well as our self-esteem,” said Stuart Crabb, Country Director of Retail Group, Johnson & Johnson Malaysia. “This is why LISTERINE® uses a unique combination of four essential oils that is clinically proven to clean virtually 100% of the mouth, killing the germs that cause tooth decay, bad breath and gum problems. The day-long rinsing event, together with the roadshow activities, was the ideal opportunity to remind all Malaysians that holistic oral care is very important.”

Morganfield's @ Pavilion KL

We dine in here at Morganfield's to utilize the voucher that I have won in Open rice contest that entitles for RM 10 dine in voucher. Expiry date is just less than 2 weeks. Open rice is very sincere huh?? Giving away the winning vouchers last minute posted to my home address and the problems to use this voucher is are they up to any limitations? Any terms and conditions applied? Before entering I show the staff and ask them how to use this voucher? Can it use for the set lunch menu? He said yes after checking with their superior. The restaurant is fully occupied during lunch crowd and we quickly choose our food selection.

Complimentary soup and drinks for the set lunch





Fish battered set with rice


Plain salad - Not presentable


Tender BBQ spare ribs


Pork ham chop


We have in total 4 vouchers and we have 5 people all together. One person can use one voucher per transaction. We waited patiently for the desserts and reminded the staff to quickly served it immediately after our main course. The service is terribly slow.

Volcanic chocolate lava cake RM 16.90 - Moist chocolate cake with ice cream and served with rich chocolate cream. We have to wait for almost 35 minutes for this desserts to be served And need to call the waiter for 3 times to remind them.

Frustrated dining experience and we are all so tired of waiting. We spent 2 hours here for the lunch hour. Not enjoyable at all. Bad service with rude lady manager named (MEL) who don't even know how to handle customer request and showing her ARROGANT face. She argued with us that this RM 10 VOUCHER is not applicable for the set lunch menu. But we told her that you staff mentioned to us earlier that we can use this voucher. She scolded her staff at the back and she is bring so egotistic .Please be professional and I wonder how she get her managerial post??


We also waited very long for our bill!
please do not do any voucher promotions or what so ever if you having the payment system error on paying our bill with the RM 10 voucher and set so many limitations of the voucher which is not even clearly indicated inside the voucher.




Will never enter this restaurant again!!
