Bonjour merry goers~
If you have been following my posts regularly, you may have read my raving review about my Valentine's Day celebration with David last year at Milanese, Kajang. Unfortunately, due to unknown reasons we found out that Milanese has shut down and we could not seem to find out the new location. It was rather sad to see it not at the usual place as it was really one of my recommended restaurants to those who are looking for amazing and affordable Italian cuisines.
Anyhow, this Valentine's Day we decided to spend our special day for a special cause by participating in the Mass Romantic Dinner held at Grand Ballroom, One City. This year, wedding.com.my together with venue sponsor MICE@One City organized a #VDAY2015 celebration with an overlying theme of "I'm FINished with Fin". This green themed celebration is in support of encouraging the exclusion of shark fins from wedding menus. As we all know, especially in Chinese weddings or celebration you will see shark fin soup being served as one of your dishes. Did you know that Malaysia is globally ranked 8th for shark catchment and 4th for shark fin imports? This is really terrible and worrying and has caused an epidemic worry about the abuse and extinction of sharks.
To support this special cause of encouraging people to stop eating shark fin, the #VDAY2015 celebration was held in collaboration with global savers NGO, Wildaid Shark Savers. The two day celebration kicked off on 14th February with Wedding Wonderland, a bridal expo and a Mass Romantic Dinner with 100 couples celebrating Valentine's Day together in support of this cause. The celebrations continued the next day with over 40 couples donned in their wedding suit or shark suit in a fun Shark's Saver's Challenge race.
