image

Familar with the brand Texas Chicken? Yes, I’m talking about the the very same chicken fast food restaurant, Texas Chicken. Well, Texas Chicken has recently added its 42nd restaurant in Malaysia at KLCC. And at the same time, debuted its Tex Café.

The seating area is spacious and comfy

But the real plus point about the café is that it offers charging ports for you to use while you enjoy your drinks and desserts. Great for those who would like to get a quick power up for their gadgets or those who needs to do some quick work over their meals.

image

Unlike it’s sister restaurant, Tex Café does not offer any fried chicken but instead, gourmet beverages and desserts.

image

Spotted at their shelves are freshly baked goods; muffins, biscuits, cakes and such.

image

Delectable pastries and hot and cold beverages from Tex Café.

Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) Unveiled Its All-New Comprehensive Creative Arts College

Just finished high school and looking forward to further your studies but still in a limbo on what kind of courses you should consider? Or a working individual but want to venture into something creative for more added value to the resume? Or just want to take up a creative course to improvise your skills?

image

Whatever you are looking for to fulfill, if you are into something creative, I believe Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) has something to offer.

In line with Malaysian government’s initiatives to spur the growth of the arts and cultural development in Malaysia, Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) has recently unveiled its all-new comprehensive Creative Arts College. Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA), formerly known as SNIPS College, is an education arm of SNIPS Hairdressing Group. Since its establishment in 1998, the institute has expanded into other industries from Hair & Beauty to Fashion Design, New Media &
Communication, Filming, Photography, Acting, Hosting (Art & Design Industry), Englishcommunication, Business Management – making it a global corporate expert in these fields.
SCCA is the heart of the company’s ongoing educational platform which opens up an array of opportunities for students to embark on commercial and artistic training.

image

According to a report by My Performing Arts Agency, the Klang Valley creative industries contributed RM8.99 billion to the country last year; making up 2 percent to the Klang Valley economy. The creative industries in developed countries currently contribute 3 to 6.9 percent to their nation’s economy – this is the new benchmark to reach in order to achieve the government’s aspirations.

Since its establishment in 1998, SCCA has ventured further into other creative arts’ fields; despite starting off as an exclusive hairdressing and makeup institute. The new additions include Fashion Design, Retail Business Management as well as New Media &
Communication (major in Filming & Performing Arts) courses. Through these courses, the college places a heavy focus on imaging, which includes prosthetic makeup and fashion
wardrobe for filming.

image

SCCA has exclusively partnered with the established fashion school from Italy, Instituto DiModa Burgo (IMB), and the world’s third best Filming Academy, Beijing Film Academy(BFA). These will be building a direct link for Malaysian talents to expand into the international arena. Through its collaboration with Instituto DiModa Burgo, the College hopes to elevate Malaysian talents into the elite Milan Fashion World. As for its tie-up with Beijing Film Academy, SCCA will be able to provide a solid pathway for talents in Malaysia to access the
Asian market through the flourishing market of China. Meanwhile, SCCA’s retail business management course aims to guide students in managing a creative business efficiently. This course content is based on high profile industry inputs from managers and business owners who have substantial experience in the sector.

Dato’ Mike Loh, Founder of SCCA, reiterated, “Over the course of the years, SCCA has evolved into a prominent college in Creative Arts. Complacency has no room in our business
ethics and so, we have strived to position ourselves as a one-stop college for all things creative to hone our Malaysian budding talents.”

“Today, we are proud to unveil our new courses on Fashion Design, Film & Imagingproduction and Business Management. We believe that these industries have strong potentials and this is evident with the growth of the fashion world as well as the film
industry,” added Dato’ Mike.

SCCA has evidently been progressing towards the government’s initiatives by continuously refreshing its creative arts offerings in a bid to develop it as a vital component of the nation’s economy. With the new additions, SCCA now offers courses in Italian Fashion Design, Talent Development (Performing Arts), Film Production, Business Management besides Beauty Technology along with several other short curriculums. The college is also open toward expansion into post-production and digitalization in the pipeline.

Located in the heart of golden triangle in Kuala Lumpur at 6th floor of Sungei Wang, the college definitely offers a dynamic and inspiring environment for students to study while offering an experience like no other in all of its courses.

The Most Beautiful Flower Shop in Singapore

Among one of the most beautiful flower shops in Singapore is definitely A Better Florist, and not because of the architecture or special design, but the design of the blooms that make this space look like a flower oasis. If you’re looking for fresh flowers Singapore flower shops offer, A Better Florist is the number one choice, because whenever you walk into their flower shop, there are always fresh and beautiful flowers ready to bloom any second.

The best florist in Singapore has an impeccable sense for design, with authentic hand bouquets and floral arrangements gracing the shelves of their flower shops.

You can find flower for any event or occasion, such as funeral flowers Singapore often needs in times of sorrow, as well as graduation, birthday, Mother’s Day flowers and even grand opening flowers Singapore needs to make big and important events even more beautiful.

image

Along with finding a beautiful grand opening flower stand for the next big event, you can find fruit baskets Singapore most commonly gets for holidays like Chinese New Year as well as Christmas. It’s the ideal gift to give to your family, and this hamper delivery Singapore offers also enables you to customise each and every hamper or fruit basket, so that your loved ones get unique gifts every single time.

image

Another great perk that you will get to enjoy is a fabulous same day flower delivery Singapore adores. Regardless of the weekend and the holidays, this flower shop has a same day flower delivery, because there are too many florists out there that don’t offer it. In addition to that, they also have an express delivery. For example, if you order a get well soon hamper Singapore often gifts to those who are sick and in recovery, you can have it delivered within just 90 minutes to any part in Singapore, and surprise your loved ones in times of recovery with a beautiful gift that will lift their spirits up. Thanks to the fastest flower delivery Singapore has ever had, you can stop worrying and planning gifts weeks or days in advance, because they are always available to do it for you.

If you’re thinking about their pricing, their same day flower delivery Singapore gets to enjoy is completely free, which is amazing, since most flower shops charge for theirs. Overall, they do have a large number of arrangements and gifts that suit someone with a low budget, but they also have the more expensive ones with those who have a specific taste for luxury things. Overall, given the quality that the best florist in Singapore provides, they aren’t going to damage your bank account.

A Better Florist isn’t just a small florist in Singapore. Their recent expansion included establishing a Dubai flower delivery, as they are known as the best florist in Dubai, as well as opening up the best flower delivery in Hong Kong. Due to their blooming success in Singapore, they decided to expand to other cities and start a floristry revolution there as well. If you’re in Hong Kong, you get to enjoy the best Hong Kong flower delivery they have ever had, and if you’re in Singapore, you also get to enjoy the best flower delivery in Singapore, from the same talented florists.

Delicious Muslim-Friendly Vietnamese Cuisine at Super Saigon Cafe

I love Vietnamese cuisines, especially their delicious Pho and delectable Banh Mi. But Vietnamese cuisines usually contains pork as their main ingredients, so finding a restaurant that serves pork-free or a Halal Vietnamese cuisine can be quite a challenge. Lucky for me though, there’s a new Vietnamese restaurant around in Klang Valley that serves Muslim-friendly Vietnamese cuisine.

Using only Halal certified products and suppliers, Super Saigon Cafe focuses on being the first Muslim friendly Vietnamese restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. There are two Super Saigon Cafe in Kuala Lumpur so far. One in TTDI and another one in Sri Hartamas.

I’ve had the privilege to dine at the one in Sri Hartamas. The welcoming interior of the restaurant takes inspiration from the colours of Asia and Mykonos, Greece, resulting in beautiful porcelain inspirations, generous white walls and bright blue with a touch of gold interior. The comfortable al-fresco seating on the other hand is perfect for an island feel.

Here’s what I had at Super Saigon Cafe Sri Hartamas; Special Beef Combination Pho, Stir Fry Teow Noodles with Sliced Beef, Rice Paper Chicken&Prawns,Marinated Ox Tail Banh Mi, Mixed Chicken Cold Cuts Banh Mi, Iced Vietnamese Coffee, Sam Po Leung and fresh coconut juice.

Pronounced as ‘fuh’, pho is renowned as Vietnam’s most popular dish and is often enjoyed for breakfast and lunch and here’s the Super Saigon Special Beef Combination Pho. Very flavourful and very ‘beefy’. The soup was beautifully done and it was pretty pleasing on the palate, with tender beef chunks and all that. This Vietnamese beef noodles come in generous sharing portion, but a big eater will find the portion is just right.

Stir Fry Teow Noodles with Sliced Beef is something I would personally recommend if you like your noodles to be savoury and saucy but not overly done. Similar to the Special Beef Combination Pho, this plate for noodles also comes in a huge portion.

Rice Paper Chicken&Prawns Rolls. Served with a side of sweet peanut sauce dipping, this Rice Paper Chicken&Prawn Rolls is a must try over here.

All of the Banh Mi sandwiches over here are are made fresh to order. I’m a huge fan of the Vietnames Banh Mi sandwiches, so I picked two of their chef’s recommended; Marinated Ox Tail Banh Mi and Mixed Chicken Cold Cuts Banh Mi. Here’s the Marinated Ox Tail Banh Mi. It sure does not disappoint. The Marinated Ox Tail Banh Mi was not just filling but addictive as well. It comes with bird’s eye chillies by default, though. If you are not a fan of spicy sandwiches, do request it to be omited upon ordering.

Mixed Chicken Cold Cuts Banh Mi was simple and fuss free. It’s something I would recommend if you want a quick and filling bite. Similar to the Marinated Ox Tail Banh Mi, this Banh Mi also comes with bird’s eye chillies by default. So, do request it to be omitted if you are not a fan of all things chillies or spicy stuff.

We had Iced Vietnamese Coffee, Sam Po Leung and fresh coconut juice to quench our thirst and to wash everything down with.

Overall, the dining experience here in Super Saigon Cafe is a pleasant one.The best part of all? You can dine with your Muslim family and friends over here. A revisit to this cafe is definitely in schedule.

What does “Belas” mean? In English, it is quite close to the meaning of the phrase ‘be loved’ “Belas” refers to the sense of love that comes from the depth of the soul, and relates also to compassion, sincerity, happiness, honesty, hope and sustainability. Belas is an important aspect of living together in a shared space. This biennale’s theme of “Alami Belas/ Be Loved” highlights a plethora of social issues related to human reactions to and interactions with nature.
