First Impressions: The Asus ZenFone 4, 5 and 6 – RM299, RM599 & RM899

I was at the launch of the ZenFone in Jakarta and besides the launch event and seeing the rather animated and cool CEO of Asus (for the first time) Jonney on stage, there was a in-depth technical seminar and a full experimental area for attendees during the day.

The ZenFone series come with ASUS ZenUI, the all-new mobile user interface

One of PJ’s best desserts: Cempedak Rolls with Vanilla Ice Cream @Fat Spoon Cafe, Uptown Damansara

Hot crispy rolls encasing sweet, thick, mushy, ripe cempedak pulp; best eaten with generous coating of icy ice cream.
This is such an original creation isn’t it; making clever use of a local delicacy (spring roll), local produce (the fruit cempedak) and pairing it with everyone’s favourite dessert – rich vanilla ice cream! :)

There’s so much more to this little cafe, but that’s it all I can think of today in this sweltering heat as I plow through a mountain of articles, emails and proposals.
Happy Thursday and indulge in some desserts ok? :)

HENNESSY X.O APPRECIATION GROWS 2014 – Chef Viet Pham from Forage Restaurant, Salt Lake City

This year, Hennessy X.O Appreciation Grows returns to enthrall connoisseurs with a gastronomy experience unlike any other.
As usual I’m honoured to be part of the X.O Appreciation Grows journey; this being my 5th, and I have my expectations set for three times James Beard semi-finalist for Best Chef: Southwest and “Iron Chef Winner”, Chef Viet Pham.

His credentials are solid and judging from the video below, he seems to be a very nice chef. Oh, he’s Malaysian too (though he’s not currently based in Malaysia).

Harum Manis Restaurant, Jakarta – Indonesian food!

This is my first time in Jakarta (I was in Solo and Bali last year) and though it was primarily a “work” trip (we are here for the Asus ZenFone launch), we are Malaysians with an insatiable stomach so food was very much a big part of our itinerary.

One of our Indonesian food affairs was at this elegant Javanese restaurant with traditional contemporary interiors. The venue cleverly accentuates the ambiance of both an elegant high-end fine restaurant and a warm comfortable Ningrat House.
