[Review] Philips 3100 series Automatic Espresso Machine

Owning an actual coffee machine has been a lifelong dream of mine. I even googled up barista courses to justify owning one at home but when I found out much a machine cost, it was back to cafe hopping. Then the Philips 3100 series Automatic Espresso Machine entered my life and it was life-changing.

Okay, I know this is starting to sound like a love letter but you have to understand that I am absolutely love coffee. I like walking into cafes where the first thing I smell is their coffee beans. I like smelling coffee beans samples and believe it or not, I can have coffee at night and still be able to sleep. Sometimes my dependence on coffee for me operate as a functioning human being went as much as three cups daily. I am trying to cut down now by pacing my drink throughout the day.

A&W is Back with More AWesomeness!

A&W has always had a strong affinity among Malaysians who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. Many of us have grown up with birthday parties at their outlets with Rooty® The Great Root Bear and have spent a lot of time at A&W after school and in the evenings for the yummilicious RB Float. 

More than a year since A&W Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. was acquired by Inter Mark Resources Sdn. Bhd. (IMRSB), the 56-year-old Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) chain brand is well on track to bring awesome-ness back to its outlets. George Ang, Chief Executive Officer of both A&W Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and IMRSB said this at the kick-off of A&Wesome Festival, which took place at A&W’s first drive-in outlet in Petaling Jaya to thank loyal fans for their continuous support over the years.

[Food Review] Christmas Buffet Spread at Four Seasons KL

Christmas is just around the corner and I bet you must be wondering what special Christmas offerings are out there for that special occasion. Enter the Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur. Right in the heart of the city itself and neighbour to Petronas Twin Towers, Four Seasons is set to offer an extravagant buffet of sorts to grace Christmas.

If you have the perception that buffet meals tend to be lackluster in choice or quality, then rest assured that you will find none of that sorts at the Four Seasons' Curate restaurant. Because ensuring that its spread is simply top notch is the primary concern of their chefs. And I am not saying that because I got to join the Four Seasons team for a sneak preview of their Christmas spread. I am saying it as a genuine lover of buffets and Christmas.
