Shell Helix-Waze Launches First Accident Prone Spots Alert to Make Malaysian Road Safer

Shell Lubricants Malaysia, through its market-leading Shell Helix brand of motor oil, has teamed up with Waze, the country’s most popular traffic and navigation app, to launch Asia’s first accident-prone spots alerts.

 photo 20170525_174233_zpsq3swlgpj.jpg

The collaboration between the two leading global brands is aimed at making the roads safer for drivers this coming Ramadan and Aidilfitri season.

From May 16 till July 15, 2017, a special alert from Shell Helix will pop up on Waze to remind drivers to be extra vigilant when their cars approach any of the 50 accident-prone spots across Peninsular Malaysia.The locations were identified based on historical accident data submitted by Waze users.

The alert to drive carefully when approaching an accident-prone spot is aimed at helping drivers, especially during the peak travel periods at the beginning of Ramadan; during and after Aidilfitri. The message will only be displayed when the car is completely stationary to avoid distracting the driver.

According to Shell Lubricants Malaysia and Singapore, Marketing Manager Alex Lim, the company is taking its road safety practices further through its smart collaboration with Waze so that drivers could take to the roads with less worry.

Waze Malaysia Business Manager Edward Ling Speech at Shell Helix-Waze Accident Prone Spot Launching

Uploaded by K Network Media on 2017-05-25.

Waze Malaysia Business Manager Edward Ling said that the accident-prone spots alert is a unique combination of two features in Waze – big data analytics, generated from a vibrant community of road users and the advertisement placement feature.

During the pre-peak travel period, Shell Helix will also be running a special oil change promotion for Waze users and members of the public who catch its Aidilfitri video on YouTube or Facebook to remind car owners to service their cars before embarking on a smoother ‘balik kampung’ journey.

By presenting a unique promo code that will be flashed on the Waze app and also in the video, car owners will enjoy up to RM30 off when they bring their cars in for an oil change service at participating Shell Helix branded workshops and Shell retail stations’ Lubebay service outlets.

Launched in 2014, the flagship Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology fully synthetic motor oil is the first and only motor oil to feature the revolutionary gas-to-liquid technology that converts natural gas into an ultra-clean and stable base oil.

This enables Shell Helix Ultra to deliver higher levels of cleansing and protection, meaning that no other motor oil keeps your engine closer to factory clean. Besides keeping the engine clean, Shell Helix Ultra also helps remove sludge left behind with inferior oils and provides superior wear and corrosion protection which can help to extend engine life and reduce maintenance costs.

In 2016, Shell Helix unveiled Malaysia’s first engine warranty programme, the Shell Helix Engine Warranty (S.H.E.W). The program covered the costs of repair or replacement of 15 engine components that may fail if it is ascertained that the Shell Helix motor oils fail to provide proper lubrication and protection. Available for free to Shell Helix users, S.H.E.W. is available to personal passenger vehicles that are registered to operate within Malaysia which are eight years old or less.  Shell Helix has recently increased eligibility to cars with mileage of 150,000 km or below.

Ramadan Buffet 2017: Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya

I can be quite fussy when it comes to food. But if there’s one place that always tops my ‘favourite place to dine during festive season’, I have to say that Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel PJ is always on the top of my list. Utara Coffee House Armada PJ has been my favourite restaurant to dine in, especially during festive season for almost 4 years now. My first time dining there was during Ramadan 2013 where I was not only impressed with their hospitality and service, but splendid feast offerings as well.

 photo 20170418_214137_zpstdiurux9.jpg

Soon it will be Ramadan 2017, and I’m pleased to report that nothing changed in Utara Coffee House, Armada PJ, exccept perhaps, the food offerings actually gets better and better than the previous years.

 photo MAKEUP_20170524201102_save_zps0aaqynw8.jpg

With Executive Chef Chew and Chef Mummy. Two friendly chefs who will be responsible for your gastronomic pleasure this Ramadan 2017. Dining in Utara Coffee House makes me feel like going home because of these two chefs. They are not only very fatherly and motherly in demeanour, but they bring the flavours of homecooking straight to your table as well.

Ramadan Buffet 2017: Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya (BM)

Uploaded by K Network Media on 2017-05-24.

Check out the my video interview with Chef Mummy here, featuring the highlights of the buffet. The video is in Bahasa Malaysia.

Anyway, since it is a buffet and I can’t possibly taste everything in one sitting and it’s almost impossible to describe everything that they have at the buffet, I’ll just highlight to you what you shouldn’t miss should you dine over there during iftar this coming Ramadan 2017:

 photo 20170418_184606_zpsf61a1awo.jpg

Kerabu Soo Hoon. A must try if you are a kerabu fan.

 photo 20170418_184611_zpssnt2goyd.jpg

Kerabu Mangga. Among one of my favourite kerabu in the buffet. Highly appetizing and goes well with a plate of piping hot rice.

 photo 20170418_184348_zpsph7tjed1.jpg

Nasi Ulam&Sayur Keladi. Now, I’m allergic to yam. Yams will make my body itchy, but these are irresitible and so I tried a spoonful of it. Definitely worth all the itch that I got the next day. It’s simply delicious.

 photo 20170418_184451_zpsxhaov637.jpg

Bubur Lambuk. Flavourful, creamy and rich, the bubur lambuk will surely sooth and comfort your tummy after a long day fasting.

 photo 20170418_184749_zpsdgalfroj.jpg

Sup Tulang Rusuk is another one of those must try dishes in the buffet. Goes well with both plain rice and crusty bread.

 photo 20170418_195350_zpsf3lgomhd.jpg

Asam Laksa with Condiments. This is one of Chef Mummy’s specialty. It’s really bad, bad for your waistline, that is. Being a Laksa Utara fan, I find this very irresistible. It tastes really like something you will get from Kuala Perlis or Kuala Kedah. Definitely recommended.

 photo 20170418_184544_zpskotofs26.jpg

Itik Berladok. Savoury and not overly spicy, this duck dish is one of the chef’s signature. I gave this a miss in favour of other dishes, but do give this a try when you dine at Utara Coffee House this coming Ramadan. I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

 photo 20170418_184851_zpsmikrs4de.jpg

Ekor Lembu Masak Asam Pedas (Kawah). Is to die for. Pair it with plain white rice, and you will find yourselves having seconds in no time at all.

 photo 20170418_184716_zpszdainirp.jpg

Ayam Golek is one of the highlights at the buffet.

 photo 20170418_184828_zpsolh73mhz.jpg

Kari Kepala Ikan Salmon. Chef’s recommended dish. Not sure how this tasted like as I overlooked this dish during the Ramadan preview, but I’ll be sure to sample some of this on my next visit.

 photo 20170418_184812_zpsvpemidsf.jpg

Ketam Masak Nangka Muda dengan Kunyit. If you have to use your hands to eat these, by all means. Don’t be shy and do it. It’ll be worth all your troubles. The Ketam Masak Nangka Muda is to die for.

 photo 20170418_184527_zpslidwwutd.jpg

Stir Fried Eggplants&Four Angle Beans with Belacan Sauce. A simple and homey dish. Those who loves belacan in their food should not miss this.

 photo 20170418_184433_zpsih36rww5.jpg

Rendang Daging . This is sensational, but not to be had on it’s own. Pair this up with some ketupat or lemang that’s hiding somewhere in the buffet instead.

 photo 20170418_184425_zpsjtwzhbpi.jpg

Siput Sedut Masak Lemak Cili Padi.This may look spicy, but don’t worry. It’s not as spicy as it sounds. All you need to do is just suck on these. Sounds wrong? Well, that’s how you do it when it comes to Siput Sedut. You need to suck on the tip of it to enjoy the savoury fleshes. Eating this may be abit messy, but I assure you it’s worth all the mess it will make.

 photo 20170418_184355_zpsf4hmrson.jpg

Sayur Lemak Labu. Not something you can usually get in the city. So if you are looking for some kampung flavours, then this is it.

 photo 20170418_184412_zpsqqspjwey.jpg

Sambal Udang Petai. One of the culprit that will tempt you to get more helpings of rice in one sitting. Definitely not recommended for those who are on a diet. This will ruin your weight loss program for sure.

 photo 20170418_184906_zpsjxtam49i.jpg

Assorted Malay Kuih and pastries is also available at the buffet, so be sure to check it out.

Overall, Utara Coffee House offers excellent Ramadan Feast. I have no complaints whatsoever, except perhaps, it makes me miss my hometown more, as the food tastes pretty much like what I can get back home. If you are looking for homey, kampung dishes that does not disappoint for iftar this Ramadan, Utara Coffee House at Armada Hotel PJ is definitely a good choice.

As a woman, I appreciate all things exquisite and beautiful, especially clothing. I like finely sewn clothes that’s not only comfortable to wear, but also helps me to stand out in the crowd. I’m a huge fan of haute couture, but they’re mostly not very affordable. But here’s one that offers exquisite couture dresses and clothing with reasonable price tag to it; Bianco Mimosa.

Here’s a bit about Bianco Mimosa; It was incorporated on 26 April 2013, with a vision to become one of the most prestigious fashion house in the region. Fast forward to 2017, Bianco Mimosa is now a renown fashion house not only in Malaysia, but highly looked up upon in the international fashion industry as well.

Bianco Mimosa not only emphasizes on exclusive haute couture collections but produced ready to wear collections as well and have been hosting numerous designers from across the globe with designs that uses fabrics that are collected from around the world. Their fabrics are also weaved from scratch to maintain exclusivity.

Mustafa hailed from the small town of Kedah and have two decades of experience designing telecommunication equipments and audio systems engineering, as well as Project Management and Business Development before she moved steps forward to the industrial sector, which based on heavy industry. Dato’ Ida Suraya Bt. Mustafa was dubbed as the “Iron Lady” because of her active involvement in this sector. Deciding to step out of her comfort zone, Dato’ Ida Suraya Bt. Mustafa wanted to take another challenge in different field, where she found her passion in fashion designing. Yearning to change the world’s views through her creativity, Dato’ Ida Suraya Bt. Mustafa founded Bianco Mimosa in hope to inspire with fashion, beauty and lifestyle throughout Malaysia as well as in Asia Pacific.

The holiday period is likewise celebrated with pomp and gaiety at Boulevard’s Parade at the Open Car Park of Genting Grand. Just basking in this festive atmosphere alone would make an excellent activity for the whole family.

Here’s some of the things I had with my son on our most recent visit; Mushroom Soup, Minestrone Soup, Tuscan Pizza, Gourmet Chicken Pie, Berry Bliss and Coke Float. All of these are our host’s recommendations.

 photo 20170319_200925_zpsfq5vvjoi.jpg

Mushroom soup is one of my all time favourite and the one in Dome’s Cafe does not disappoint. Served with a side of garlic bread, the creamy goodness was really satisfying and comforting on the tummy.

 photo 20170319_202125_zpsxahtuefo.jpg

Minestrone soup was very filling and has the flavours of home. Small eaters may find this a satisfying meal on it’s own. A recommended order should you want something comforting to eat.

 photo 20170514_132133_zpsyiy9cawc.jpg

Tuscan Pizza is thin crusted and topped mainly with olives, pepperoni and mozerella cheese. If you are a pizza fan, you’ll definitely find this addictive.

 photo 20170514_132102_zps9fnn93fc.jpg

Gourmet Chicken Pie was to die for. The pastry was buttery and flaky while the filling was rich and creamy. This savoury pie is definitely a winner and was my favourite that day.

 photo 20170514_130915_zpsruqlxce7.jpg

Coke Float was something that’s available from the kid’s menu, but nobody says you can’t indulge on this.

 photo 20170514_131100_zpst5rosfji.jpg

Berry Bliss smoothies is a perfect drink to cleanse your palate with. It’s sweet with hints of sourness to it.

I’ve patronized the cafe twice as of writing. Once with my parents when they were newly opened and the second time was during Mother’s Day, as Dome’s Cafe invited guest. Different experience both times as I went as a paying customer during the first time and the second time as an invited guest, but if there’s thing that remains the same is that the food was still wonderful and the service was still.swift and superb. Definitely becoming one of my favourite lurk in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting.

Memorable Mother’s Day 2017 at Resorts World Genting

Many condemn me for not being a good mother including ‘friends’ and relatives. I was once accused abusive by my husband’s friends as I’m very strict with my son. I was told to send my son to my mother in law to raise by these people because they thought I’m haven’t been doing a good job. I’m often accused of not feeding my son well as he doesn’t grow sideways and I was told in my face that I haven’t been teaching him well because he have social and communication issue as he is on the autism spectrum.

People always try to teach me how to ‘be a good mum’ by telling me what to do, but not many aknowledge me as a mother, including my family and relatives. I’ve been a mother for more than a decade as of writing. But while every other mothers receive gifts, treats, and even greetings as a token of appreciation during mother’s day all these while, I don’t. My husband grew up in a rather rigid and traditional Chinese family and is not much on celebrating such occasion while my son, well, he’s on autism spectrum and so despite his age, doesn’t really grasps the concept of Mother’s Day although he loves me very much.

Getting immune with the lack of appreciation as a mother all these while, I wasn’t expecting much on Mother’s Day 2017. After all, what special thing could happen and who would suddenly recognize me as a good mother anyway? But much to my surprise, I received an invitation as a mother to celebrate mother’s day in Resorts World Genting this year with other influencers who are mother themselves or son and daughters who are bringing their elderly mothers.

This may not sound much to some, but it means alot to me, as at least in the eyes of others, I am a mother too. It is really nice to be appreciated instead of being judged and condemned all the time.

And so, I said yes to the invitation and brought my son along with me for a fun mum and son day out on Mother’s Day in Resorts World Genting.

Our day started pretty early. We departed from Wisma Genting, Kuala Lumpur in the morning to the foot of the hill; Awana Skyway where we board the new glass floor gondola for a direct trip up to the new SkyAvenue Skyway Station.

Here’s us with other influencers at Awana Station while queing up for the glass floor gondola.

It doesn’t take long for us to board the glass floor gondola, and the journey from Awana Skyway to the SkyAvenue station merely takes about 10 minutes ride. I wish it takes longer though. The view from the glass floor gondola is magnificent.

Can’t help myself. So here’s a selfie in the glass floor gondola

Touching down SkyAvenue station, it was already noon and time for lunch. As per our invitation, we head over to Dome’s Cafe for lunch.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170514130459_fast_zpsjfql89xg.jpg

This is my second time patronizing Dome’s Cafe at SkyAvenue. They have extensive items being offered on the menu and the food are really nice, but I wasn’t really decisive that day so I asked our host for some recommendation instead.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170516190357_save_zps6taho6j9.jpg

And here’s what recommended to us for lunch; Mushroom Soup, Minestrone Soup, Tuscan Pizza, Gourmet Chicken Pie, Berry Bliss and Coke Float. More about our dining experience at Dome’s Cafe HERE.

There were plenty of interesting activities in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting during Mother’s Day. And here’s one of the unforgettable one, Mother’s Day flashmob at SkyAvenue.

As part of their CSR program, Resorts World Genting has also invited single mothers from Raub and their children for a fun day out at Resorts World Genting on Mother’s Day. The single mothers and the children were treated to a sumptuos steamboat meal at Resort Seafood and fun time in SnowWorld before they were given hampers as a token of appreciation.

Come teatime, all of us were given a list of outlets at SkyAvenue where we can redeem our teatime snacks at.There were a total 6 of them. Gindaco, Madame Waffle, Inside Scoop, Just Heavenly, Tokyo Secret and Gong Cha. I was really happy when I looked through the list. Looks pretty much like a mini food trail, and being a foodie, I was really excited quickly made my way to the first outlet.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170516193428_save_zps1bm3ivjj.jpg

Gindaco was our first stop. Gindaco is a snack counter that sells all time favourite Japanese snack; Takoyaki (octopus balls).

 photo FB_IMG_1494931152622_zpsfzuabdgm.jpg

The takoyaki are made upon order to retain its freshness and here’s some takoyaki in the making

Takoyaki. Takoyaki is a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special moulded pan. It’s typically filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion. In this case, it was filled with octopus bits.

Madame Waffle was our second stop. This outlets served assorted premium waffles with a selection of coffee or tea.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931165585_zpssxcpv04z.jpg

Our waffle, the original Madame Waffle’s waffle. Plain and no frills, the waffles from Madame Waffle is great for those who just want to grab and go.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931168339_zpskwsrhhqn.jpg

Tokyo Secret was our third stop. This outlet offers assorted Hanjyuku Cheesecakes and Cheesetarts and is quite a rave among Malaysian food bloggers and instagrammers.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931170946_zpstppxivca.jpg

Hanjyuku Cheesetart and Cheesecake. Tastewise? Splendid. They do live up to expectations.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931176124_zps4yuvz2v1.jpg

Next on our list was Inside Scoop. This outlet serves assorted premium ice creams, waffles and affagatos.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931179006_zpsnzf84rmr.jpg

A variety of ice creams for you to choose from.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931181712_zpsglxgoawv.jpg

Our treat from Inside Scoop; Buttermilk Waffle and Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream. This was one of the best waffle and ice cream I’ve ever tasted, and I can assure you a revisit is in order. Highly recommended if you have sweet tooth. A bonus? The staffs here are sweet too. They are helpful and eager to please as well.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931184305_zpswf4uss2m.jpg

Gong Cha was the last outlet my son and I visited.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931187057_zpsimkhc9sw.jpg

There are plenty of milktea items on Gong Cha’s menu, but we had these: Refreshing wintermelon milk tea and Milktea with Herbal Jellies. Tastewise, they are okay. Great for milktea lovers.

 photo FB_IMG_1494931386637_zpscsdu1b45.jpg

I had a walk in SkyAvenue with my son after visiting Gong Cha but time was rather envious of us and before I knew it, it was already time to go home. Too bad things ended so soon. But well, time always flies whenever we have fun, doesn’t it? Celebrating Mother’s Day in Resorts World Genting was one of the best thing that happened to me as a mother. I feel appreciated with all the treats throughout the day, and oh…the flowers…let’s not forget the flower I received from our host. That was the first time I received a flower on Mother’s Day. It was indeed a wonderful experience and I’ll treasure the memories forever.

Thank you Resorts World Genting for making Mother’s Day fun and meaningful to me.
