A Seoul-Ful Christmas Affair at SkyWorld Property Gallery, Bukit Jalil

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Hi darlings! It was a fun filled Seoul Christmas last weekend at SkyWorld Property Gallery, Bukit Jalil. SkyWorld Development Group initiated their "Christmas Goodness" with two meaningful causes which is the Christmas Candy Cane Charity Drive and their Seoul-ful Christmas. 

SkyLuxe on the Park, surrounded by 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreational Park and a 165-acre 18-hole Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort. Aiming to become a Green Building Index Provisional certified development, SkyWorld invested around RM6.5 million and is proud to have several eco-friendly features such as inverter lifts, rainwater harvesting units and a dedicated recycling centre. 

The Christmas Candy Cane Charity Drive aimed to raise funds for the children at Rumah Charis, OUG. A huge Christmas tree @ SkyLuxe on the Park Property Gallery was decorated with candies decorated by the children. 

Visitors were encouraged to pick the candies and donate any amount they want for charity. This charity drive is until 8 January 2017 so you still have time to contribute to this cause plus the candies were a sweet delight.

The Seoul-ful Christmas event was filled with many entertaining and fun activities from wearing the traditional Hanbok costume to Korean makeup classes and demonstration by Artistique as well as Korean cuisine cooking classes. 

There were also craft and face painting sessions which many of the visitors enjoyed. The winners of the Children Coloring Contest held the previous week were also announced on that day. You can see their creative pieces on display at SkyWorld Property Gallery for a week.

Garage51 x Nutella Christmas Menu Review

Monday, December 19, 2016

You know Christmas is just around the corner when cafes start showcasing some delectable sweet treats adorned gorgeously just for the festive season. This is no exception for Garage51 whom this year partnering up with Nutella and creating some decadent treats using the ever famous hazelnut chocolate spread.

Thanks to Bowie for bringing me along to be one of the first to enjoy Garage51 x Nutella Christmas Menu showcasing 3 new treats: Messy Garage Pancake with Nutella, Messed Up Family X'Mas Special Nutella Peppermint, Mochatella, Nutella Burger and one of the crowd favourite from the Messed Up Family, The Son Nutella Hazelnut Milkshake.

I must say that I have seen crazy milkshake creations from Garage51 and have always wanted to pay them a visit. They definitely did not disappoint with their Christmas Nutella Menu so lets get into the details starting with the Messy Garage Pancake with Nutella (RM18). Once it landed on the table, there is no denying that this is one Instagrammable pancake indeed.  Fluffy and stacked up in a pile before drizzling some chocolate sauce over it, these tower of pancakes are stuffed with Nutella and I heard that they have further enhance this pancake recipe after we visited them.

One of the dream of a Nutella fan would definitely to smother thick slabs of Nutella over a bun and just savor every single bite of it. Decadent and oh-so-sinfully good, the Nutella Burger (RM16) delivers just that! Paired it with a few slices of strawberries, this is just the basic item to fulfill a Nutella fan's dream.

Let's move on to the drinks selection because they seriously are the topper to the whole menu. A must try is the Mochatella which has thick luscious Nutella served with coffee cubes before the splash of milk to melt it all down. For those of you who hate diluted iced coffee, you won't face that problem here because the coffee cubes just releases the coffee slowly as it melts.

The two drinks that awed everyone is the Nutella Hazelnut Milkshake also known as The Son in the Messed Up Family and their latest Nutella Peppermint. I was actually quite worried that it would be overly sweet when I got the first look at The Son (RM18.90) but to my surprise, it was really very well balanced.

The Son comes topped with pretzel biscuits, caramel popcorn, marshmallow and chocolate sauce drizzles. Of course the first question that comes to mind is how on earth do we even dig into this gorgeous creation but trust me, at the end of the day this whole cup will be gone.

I love their Nutella Peppermint (RM19.90) topped with their own homemade cupcake just like the topper of a Christmas Tree. The hint of Peppermint was subtle but sufficient to spice up the whole drink. Minty fresh yet smooth and creamy, this is a must try from them.

Don't miss out on the Garage51 x Nutella menu which is available from 1st December onwards. It is definitely a sweet affair with them.

Running Man Challenge - Hydrate by 100Plus with Lee Kwang Soo

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Last weekend was most probably my most eventful weekend with the chance to meet Lee Kwang Soo up live in person. If you don't know who he is, then you are definitely not a Korean fan because he is the ever famous Giraffe from Running Man Korea. Running Man is a popular Korean variety program which has won the hearts of many around the world with their fun games, challenges, funny antics and we finally recorded a Running Man episode in Malaysia. 
In collaboration with 100Plus and Astro One HD, the Running Man Challenge - Hydrated by 100Plus was recorded at Paradigm Mall with Lee Kwang Soo himself.
I must say he's popularity hasn't died down although Running Man has been airing for the past 5 years because there were tons of fans waiting for him to arrive. Just look at the amount of effort the fans put to catch a glimpse of his face!
4 teams competed among each other lead by Malaysian celebrities, Ajak Shiro, Sharul Ridzwan, Hairul Azreen and Arda Jebat where the winning team had their final fight with Lee Kwang Soo.The airing of this recording can be watch on ASTRO RIA (1 Jan 2017) apart from CH 393, ONE HD. But let's have some spam photos of Lee Kwang Soo! Honestly he was so charming although he isn't my bias in Running Man and very engaging with the crowd.
Congratulations to the winning team as well as those who got to attend the meet & greet session with him! For more photos of him, head to my Facebook page
