Launch Of “Flavours Of Shanghai” @ Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant – One World Hotel

One World Hotel with the support of The Eton Hotel Shanghai will be promoting ‘Flavours of Shanghai” at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant, located on the lobby level from 23 June to 02 July 2011.

Chef Terry Yu Ning (sous chef), Chef Fanny Le Fei (chef de partie), Chef Lion Yu Sheng (wok 1) and Chef Navy Yang Tian Hai (steamer 1) from The Eton Hotel Shanghai were “flown in” to showcase authentic Shanghainese dishes during the 10-day promotion. They came hand-carrying mushrooms, seasonings, sauce & whatever else that goes into the dishes so one is assured that it is a truly authentic Shanghainese experience for all.

At the launch last week, a bunch of us were given a Shanghainese treat, together with almost 60 other guests of the hotel who are mainly the hotel’s corporate clients and business partners.

The Vanilla Place – desserts galore!

Contrary to what some may think, leaving my job wasn’t an easy decision. I wasn’t exactly rejoicing in triumph. I left with a heavy heart.
But I walked out knowing I have done my best, and accepted that there are times when one has to admit defeat & this is one of them. Some things are just not within my field or control to change.

Anyhow, when things gets low, desserts are the way to go. (Eh, it rhythms!! :) )
I have heard of how Empire Shopping Gallery has become THE place for desserts, which is true, considering the amount of eateries here that specialised in sweets & pretty pastries.

This time round I decided to check out The Vanilla Place.

The Vanilla Place, Empire Shopping Gallery-01 mentioned in Malaysia Kitchen, a New Zealand based food website on Malaysian food! had a small “mention” in Malaysia Kitchen, a New Zealand based food website on Malaysian food. :P

More on Catherine’s visit to Malaysia:

She had banana leaf here -Vishal Banana Leaf – Brickfields and the video of her trip – KL makan-makan leg HERE!!

Next up! The Melaka video! It’s taken using fish-eye lens & it looks pretty good! I will be posting that later! :)
