Well, I had the opportunity to catch the launching of Hennessy VSOP's latest bottle design back a couple of weeks and it was pretty cool, complete with a party and all (Hennessy VSOP New Bottle Launch 2012) This writeup, will not be re-hashing the events from that day, but geared more towards explaining why Hennessy chose Chris Bangle for the design job, and more explanation on what changed on the new Hennessy VSOP bottle.
More restaurants nowadays are going the healthy living path, and this round I had the opportunity to dine in at Zest Cafe in Bangsar South who advocates healthy yet delicious food. Located inside The Sphere, Bangsar South, Zest Cafe goes by the tagline "Food for the body, and food for the soul". It's rather appropriate actually, as we were told that Zest Cafe practises MSG-free, low salt, low sugar, low cream, no deep-fried food, no margarine, only butter, and uses 100% olive oil.

Malones Irish Restaurant & Bar recently launched its fifth outlet over at Jaya One, with the other outlets being in Suria KLCC, Sooka Central, Pavilion KL and The Curve. Established since 2009, Malones offers a delightful menu filled with an array of authentic Irish specialties. I was there a couple of weeks back with a bunch of foodies for a nice dinner.

We all know Klang is famous for it's numerous stalls of Bak Kut Teh, some better than others. Bak Kut Teh is so synonymous with Klang that the moment anyone mention they wanted a good bowl of Bak Kut Teh, we would usually suggest Klang. This round, a couple of us bloggers decided to crash in at Fong Keow Bak Kut Teh in Taman Intan, Klang to sample their dishes.

Astro On The Go was launched late last month, 30th May 2012 to be exact and I actually had the opportunity to catch their launch event. "Take Astro with You, Wherever You Go", that's the tagline, and true to it's word, Astro On The Go application gives Astro subscribers a chance to catch all 31 live matches of UEFA Euro 2012, 11 TV channels, Catch Up Titles and Video On Demand for free until 31st August.

Samsung Galaxy S3, the hot new gadget, which by now should already reach the hands of the masses. However, if you haven't had the chance to get one yet, there's always our local telcos (Celcom in this case) which provides some plans to get the gadget at a cheaper price.

Sharp, now who hasn't heard of this brand, one of the pioneers of electrical and electronic appliances. My memories of Sharp appliances were concentrated on the Aquos range of LCD TV a couple of years back. The crisp colours and latest tech were what attracted me to Sharp. Of course, in recent years we were spoilt for choice when it came to electrical and electronic appliances.

A couple of weeks back, I was at Sepang to witness the launching and unveiling of not one but two all-new Toyota iconic cars the All-New Toyota Camry 2012 as well as the All-New Toyota 86 sports car. It is interesting to note that this was the first time in 30 years that UMW Toyota Motor had launched two cars in one go.

Everybody loves food, that's a fact, but how often do we find ourselves hungry for a meal yet we just do not feel like leaving the house to grab a bite. The next thing that comes to my mind would most probably be either McDonald's delivery, Domino's or Pizza Hut.
These are the safe but rather mundane food options, so I was pretty excited when the new kid on the block, Foodpanda Delivery Service approached me to try out their system. The food offered came from all over, various restaurants, good wholesome food.
So 20 of us KL bloggers and media were given the opportunity to catch H-Artistry Penang in person courtesy of Hennessy. Touching down at the Penang airport at just past 12pm, we were whisked away for a nice lunch and then for the Meet & Greet Session over at Straits Quay Conference Centre (SQCC). Do check out my pre-write up post for this premier clubbing event happening tonight in Penang! (H-Artistry @ SQCC Penang Coming Up!)

On The Table is this rather classy yet cozy restaurant located in Solaris Dutamas serving fusion food ranging from western food to the local favourite nasi goreng. I was intrigued with the name of the eatery, it had a unique ring to it. The restaurant opened its doors back in 2010, with Corporate Chef Riz, son of celebrity chef, Chef Wan leading the culinary team.

It has been a while since my last food update, with numerous reasons I can come up with as an excuse, but hey, today's post will be on the new Din Tai Fung outlet in e@Curve which I had the chance to try out a couple of weeks back. The name itself Din Tai Fung is well known, with branches literally everywhere, with this outlet being its fourth outlet after The Gardens, Midvalley, Pavilion KL, and Empire Shopping Gallery.

Hennessy Malaysia is bringing the H-Artistry again this time over in Penang. Now I've always had the chance to catch the previous H-Artistry events last year, and they were good. The premier super-clubbing Artistry is back this year with three explosive parties; the first of which is set to rock Penang on the 16th June 2012 at the Straits Quay Convention Centre.

Fancy some German sausages and pork knuckles? Well, here at Deutsches Haus in Jaya 33, that's exactly what you'll get, lots of it. Located at the Jaya33 shopping mall, Deutsches Haus is this German Restaurant & Bar, which wasn't really hard to locate facing the front road. I had the opportunity to have dinner there a couple of weeks back with a group of food bloggers.

Khunthai Authentic Thai Restaurant opened their newest branch in Teluk Kumbar Penang half a year back, their fourth branch after PJ, Kepong, and Butterworth branches. The location of this restaurant was actually only less than 1km from my Penang house in Teluk Kumbar, but I have not visited it until last night when my in-laws came over and we decided to give this restaurant a try.

Frankly speaking, I've not been very savvy over the online shopping phenomena which is currently the rage. Fashion clothing are in. Where else can you get the perfect clothing with an affordable price tag if not through online boutiques? Recently Janice wanted to get a dress, where she actually browsed through this new fashion portal (The Fashion Bloomers).

I've done a short writeup on this upcoming Super GT race a couple of weeks back. Today's post will serve as another heads up for the race this 9th and 10th of June 2012. Super GT 2012 Round 3 Malaysia, the fastest Grand Touring Race in the world, and the only Super GT race outside of Japan. To the casual fans, this event is so much more than just motorsport. It integrates all forms of fun into one event.

A couple of weeks back I was at Hennessy's new bottle launch event (Hennessy V.S.O.P New Bottle Launch 2012), and it was pretty cool. Now the good folks from Hennessy have decided to giveaway a brand new bottle of Hennessy V.S.O.P here, so get ready to answer some simple questions and walk away with the bottle.
