French Fries ? Mashed Potatoes ? Now not anymore where all the potatoes have been upgraded to all new heights of taste and glamor culinary by the 14 Malaysian taste ! Unlimited version style of potatoes now we can have to tantalize our taste buds. I heard that in the US Potato Culinary Festival Kuala Lumpur 2015 has brought the world's favorite comfort to us especially with the potatoes.

A mouthwatering assortment of unique and fusion dishes that elevate the versatility will feature including the nutritional benefits and superior taste of quality US potatoes.

I heard that the restaurants will participate in this year which including the most popular hotels and restaurants such as:

5. La Bo Ca Latino

The 14 Malaysian Chefs in the part of the US Potato Culinary Festival.

When I was in the festival, I've tasted several truly creative variations of potato frittatas, potato mash-ups and even potato ice cream were versatile by the chefs with the US potatoes. Some of the taste you will feel like you are flying on the sky and not all the taste can fit in my tummy. I'm glad that there was a coconut shake with potatoes. Too bad I didn't manage to take the picture of it, I'm pretty sure all of you will like the taste with the vanilla spur.

Each of the chefs from the respective restaurants have been tasked by inventing the most delectable and unique recipes by using the quality US potatoes and they will serve their ideas in the culinary with those wonderful potato dishes at their own outlets around the Klang Valley.

The health Dietary talked about the benefits of potatoes

US potato contains just 110 calories per serving, more potassium (620g) than a banana, provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C ( 45%) and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

Trust me I am huge fan when it comes to potatoes. As a Malaysian that always consuming potatoes like everyday in Malaysian food, sorry but I wanna paste in my blog such as "begedil, tempe dan kentang masak pedas, karipap kari, sup kentang" and there are so many style we can do with potatoes. A healthy, balanced meal can be just as tasteful with Potatoes. You can either baked, mashed, roasted or fried with the US potatoes. And I heard that the American College of Nutrition that they has done the research -people can eat potatoes and still lose weight - Now I am hoping for it!

Let's Check OUT the potatoes culinary served by the 14 Malaysian Chefs !

Apologies for my bad excuse that I am always hoping for Non-GMO or organic produced from the US because now there are so many food with genetically modified. The US agriculture methods may sometimes come at slightly premium price as a reason in producing the better quality, taste, versatilty and nutritional value that we have been looking for ages.

Malaysian who like to experience the difference in quality US potatoes can find these tuber gems in all leading supermarkets and hypermarkets in Malaysia. With the quality and superior taste of US potatoes have lead the restaurants and QSR chains in serving their culinary style.

A Night to remember in Mother's Day Miracle Night with Dato' Siti Nur Haliza

Hello everyone ! Remember on the last Friday at May 15? An amazing history for the mothers in celebrating the Mother's Day Miracle Night with Dato Siti Nur Haliza at TM Convention Crystal Hall organized by #OMGfest one of the agency of "karnival usahawan."

This ceremony were attended by the VVIPs, the mothers, celebrities and the main agenda of this event was to giving an opportunity for the 30 orphanages from "Pusat Jagaan Budaya Harapan" to celebrate their beautiful night day with Dato' Siti Nur Haliza and raised fund for the charity for their organization too.


Me, Norfa Nil and author were posing in the entrance booth. There was a photo-booth for the mothers and the guests to keep the photo in the memory of the heart or an album. The booth was decorated with simply elegant, dazzle with the blinking of lights and the photo of Dato' Siti Nur Haliza on the back of it to enliven the atmosphere of the photo booth.

On the table 22 with 08, unlucky number during the day, but still enjoying the foods and beverages.

The menu was super irresistible and simply done by the caterer. The mixed of the meat, fish and chicken in different trays saved the night with many kind of the healthy food. Around 10 persons in a table and the food were not wasted. We might in hungry mode while waiting for Dato' Siti Nur Haliza to appear. Trust me the trays were so lubricious and I didn't managed to taste the chicken soup in the middle of it. Sob sob but never mind as long as we were still enjoy the delicious food was enough for me.

Around 10 pm after the long awaits, then only came out two famous Malaysian comedian, Nabil and Angah Raja Lawak. Trust me, the people in the ceremony were laughing a lot and tears on their eyes because they just couldn't stand with their jokes about the Malaysian politician and the nibble part for a pairs of mothers and the daughters.

Dato Siti Nur Haliza appeared with beautiful green peplum with glossy black hijab on the stage with her first song "Ku wanita" not really sure the title and the music was so catchy telling about a woman who wants to makes herself appreciated by others. A song that compatible for the heart of mothers around the world, being appreciated is one of the effort with no matter from husband, family or kids. She also sang her famous theme song of popular drama series rindu awak 200% - Jaga dia untukku. Not only that the complication of mother songs such as "Ibu- Engkaulah Ratu Hatiku" and others have made the night became gloomy and brought tears to myself and several individuals in the night of the ceremony.
Remember on her last press conference that she promised she will picked a lucky veteran mother and eat together with the food she will cook, now here she was. She has picked a mother's aged around 80 and above. The veteran mother's named is Mak Pah. The saddest part I realized that Dato' Siti's grandmother was passed away on the several days before the night. The ceremony became more heart touching and may be the saddest part for those who has lost their loves one.


Dato' Siti Nur Haliza was preparing her recipe "ketam masak telur masin" and enjoying the cook-time with Mak Pah for the candle light dinner, during the preparation and the candle light session, Dato' Siti sang several mother's songs for Mak Pah. I have the huge feeling that she was in the heartbreaks in remembering her late grandmother during her songs performed.

The final session of the ceremony was the Lucky-Draw moment, well my number wasn't really lucky during the day, but one of my Hai Blogger team +Ayue Idris was really  LUCKY ! Congratulations Ayu !

The group photo of #HaiBlogger team throughout the day.

Us with Nabil Angah Raja Lawak in the private room.

The medias and bloggers in the press conference room after the end of the day. Dato' Siti told us  about her sweet moment and memory with her late grandmother. Allahyarham Teh Tek'ek on the last breath at the age of 91 after 2 weeks confined to a hospital due to a variety of diseases. Died on Monday at noon at Hospital Kuala Lipis, Pahang. I am hoping that Dato' Siti preserved over the loss of a loved one, Al-Fatihah.

The night not only for fun but for us to remember the power of every mother's in the world and always make them happy no matter what.

The relationship between the mother and child is no accident. At times the child may reject his mother and wish he had a different one. Remember your soul made the choice for a reason. This woman can help you live your purpose- familyfriendpoems

Thanks to HaiBlogger and OMGfest for having me on the miracle night with Dato' Siti Nur Haliza.

#Event : BBQ Pool Side Party Bloggers Gathering totally Happening !

~Blogger BBQ Pool Side Party was Fun & Awesome~


Hello everyone ! Sorry a bit late to update an amazing blogger gathering I was attended on the last Sunday. Not really in good mood due to the early stage trimester but I will trying hard to tell the my experience and story  about  the last met with the blogger friends.

This is a blogger community project organized by Dr Sidney Kan where he managed to gathered almost 100 people in the party including the mommies, daddies, the bachelors and the kids too. The party was happening at a condominium located in Kota Domansara.

On my way to party wasn't easy as my loves one's health was not in good condition while me with the sickness of pregnancy but still want to attend the party to meet the blogger friends and eat the LAMB of BBQ, ha3. Is not really good too when the weather was not really friendly on the day, but at last we were still managed to get there and the rain didn't stop us from going to the fun gatherings moment with the well-known bloggers such as Bro Frame Stone, Sunshine Kelly and many more.

The Pool & The Activities


The pool from my view. Well - square shape for the kids pool while the extra shape for the adult pool. Haha. Not really sure how to describe the shape as I am not really good in physics and do not ask me how to calculate the size and the volume of the pool. Lols. The water of pool is blue by the way might added with chlorine to avoid the mosquitoes lay eggs. Prevention is better than cure. And the balloons were occupied the side of the pool in the adult's area.

BBQ by Bakarlah wasn't ready yet, they were in the preparation of it. While we were waiting for the foods to get ready, all of us enjoying other activities in the hall with the family and blogger friends.

The bloggers were waiting up for Zung The Ninja Photographer for the twilight head shot. He said that it is not a beauty shot so you don't have to pose like a model.

The balloons for the kids to play with in the hall. The more balloons the more fun as the kids will have fun enjoying their time play with the balloons, easy for parents for their kids to remain silence and prevent them to get into the pool without the supervision.

The bloggers husband of Leona and Jane Chua, as the mother spent time for the activities prepared, the daddies worked as the babysitter, same goes to my husband. Lols. The kids need more attention than the adults. lols. ha3.


As am I the only one of the mommy blogger who enjoyed my time with the kids at their pool. Yeah and my size of body seems like size of them too, I was bullied by them ha3, but they loved to interact with me. That's too lucky when the kids were liking me a lot. Lols. And the saddest part when I tried to walked out from the pool, they were not allowing me to go because the fun part to enjoy still not satisfy them yet. Maybe next time till we meet again kiddo. he3.

The Jewellery Maker

For the little girls, there was a jewellery maker session by Kelvin Gems and Elegant Jewelry Studio.
The girls were so creative as I can see they made a lovely necklace for themselves or to give it to their mom. Every girls who has done the jewellery has unique style in their way. Don't be surprise there was a boy too made a sweet necklace for his mommy too. So adorable son he was !

Rayyan and his father were amazed look at Zung The Ninja Photographer biography and profile on the display set through the visual.

The Foods & Beverages

Back to the BBQ area, Bakarlah is ready to grill the chicken on the fire. Now we were waiting for the chicken to have a good taste and juicy impact under the skin layer. MARVELOUS !

So Pepsi for the sweet taste, and I recommending for those who has high sugar blood problem to drink the plain water instead of the pepsi.

Besides of the chicken, there was other delicious seafood were prepared too by GST - Group Seafood supply of fresh prawns, ikan kembong and saba mackerel. Thanks again to Bakarlah BBQ and Rental provided their equipment for the party.

My favorite No frill just grill so far, the LAMB chop LAMB. woohoo!

The Face & Body Art

For more fun and artistic look, the Face & Body Art was provided too for those ladies and little girls who wants to have face painting with the beautiful images on their body and face. Thanks to Fannie Face Art for creating creative face and body art for us.

Mine art just as simple as for the princess style. But too bad once I went out from the pool, the art was washed away. No selfie photo with face art ;( So sad ! :(

The Photography Session

For those who loves with artistic black & white portrait services, you guys can contact Zung- ninja photographer | Facebook or visit his


Zung the ninja photographer  used his skill to get me the perfect shot for the twilight head shot. He said once again, it is not a beauty shot. Everyone can look beautiful in his photo. Ho ho.
