When I’m not hitting the road for media trips, then I’m out attending events, or food reviews.
Last Friday, my Sahabat Media friends and I were invited to attend Ancasa Hotel&Spa Corporate Cocktail where we were given a chance to mingle around with not only VIP guests but also tourism players from all around Malaysia. Pic credit to Abang Bz Hanif, whom we all fondly know as Chip.
A pic of my friend Piet, one of my all time favourite chef friend, Chef Ricky and formerly a member of Sahabat Media friend turned Ancasa staff, Ms. Ros whom I fondly called Achik. 🙂
During the Corporate Cocktail, Ancasa Hotel&Spa also launched their new upcoming promo, Chennai Spices with a catchy and upbeat traditional dance performance.
Invited guests were also given a glimpse to what Chennai Spices have to offer soon. Looks exquisite, no?
Managed to sample some of the dishes that will be on offer soon. One of it is Tandoori Prawns. 😉 These are not only fresh and succulent but was well marinated with myriad of spices.
Oyster mushrooms sauteed with spices. I did not stop at third spoonful, mind you. It was positively addictive.
Briyani rice was divine and fragrant.
Ala minute stall offers pasta. But I did not try it.
Apam balik, a type of griddle pancake was also available to tempt us that night.
This local pancake is usually filled with creamy condensed corns, crushed peanuts and a sprinkling of sugar. It is a common street food and is usually sold at roadside or night market all over Malaysia.
The texture of Apam Balik is akin to a crispier form of crumpets and is absolutely delicious.
The food offered to guests that night was undeniably scrumptious, but the fun did not stop just at food. There was plenty of activities that night. One of it is Kolam making contest in conjunction of Diwali, which yours truly participated.
And surprisingly, I won first prize for it that night with the help of my friend Wendy Pua. Now, that’s a first. Shocking, really. I was never acknowledge for anything artful, ever. Writing, yes. Artful, no. :p It was my lucky night indeed.
Lucky draw winners
And the highlight of the night, I danced Poco Poco with my Sahabat Media friends and Ancasa Hotel&Spa staff. 😉 Picture is blurred for a reason. We were just looking for some fun, and most of us are rather low profile to be showing ourselves dancing. :p Someone took a video of us of course. But that is to be remained among us. 😉
It was indeed a memorable night with friends and Ancasa Hotel&Spa staff. Thank you for such a wonderful evening. Yours truly enjoyed it immensely. 🙂
