MAS: First in the world to fly on board B737-800

Wasssuppp Shaz: know i promised you loads... but Dear Readers of this Frenchie network... i've been busy with work work work and travelling here and there. Most of you have been following me very closely and discretely over both my Facebook accounts and Twitter!

I KNOW :) And i thank you for that...

For now, i wanna bring your attention towards a once in a lifetime epic adventure that i was invited to join recently... MALAYSIA AIRLINES SYSTEM (MAS) our national air-carrier with a TRUE Malaysian Hospitality has done it again!

What is it this time? MAS is the 1st airline in the world to receive the all new BOEING 737-800, the replacement model to the B737-400. This aircraft is set to fly a direct route between Kota Kinabalu (KKIA) to Haneda (Japan). Recently on the 15th of November, marks an important day for both MAS and Malaysia as we happily launched the 1st commercial flight for the B737-800 from KKIA to Haneda.

What's so Special about the B737-800???
Even my dad has been asking me... not only that he wants to board one! Yes, he travels to KK, Kuching, Tawau often... but oh well told him that for now MAS only use the new aircraft for flights between KK and Haneda. But not to worry, MAS ordered 55 of these aircrafts to replace the previous model (B737-400) that will cover the current domestic and certain short distance international flights.

What to look forward to onboard the B737-800!!!
  • The high ceiling, yes it's higher than the 400 series!
  • Thematic mood lighting, there's the BLUE SKY light too!!! It changes color depending on the mood that is set.
  • Hand baggage compartment is more spacious and better.
  • Seats are leather fitted with a TOUCH SCREEN LCD Screen with Audio & Video on demand! A variety of TV series and movies for you to watch! For young kids to adults :)

*More pictures are on Facebook, soon i will post it up here on my BLOG :)
Oh Yea....another piece of story for you... wait up next year!!! MAS gonna bring you another brand new aircraft... but this time around, is it gonna be an Airbus or another Boeing? Stay tuned aights :)

MILF... i meant MIGF 2010

Wasssuppp All MILF's!!!: Kidding, so when was the last time you watched American Pie? Am sure... no matter how long that was you could still remember this joke! Anyhow... was at the MIGF 2010 which is the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival held at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach.

Such an auspicious event held at a very informal location... but Malaysian Socialites, VIP's and papa & mama's still know how to dress chic / fashionably at such an event. I was perhaps the only one that was not dressed to the theme which was BEACH WEAR. Ohh well... next time then!

This event was held with the presence of some of the TOP CHEF's in Malaysian Hotels & Gourmands Restaurants... they participated in this competition in which over a month plus... visitors who visits the restaurant eats the best of their menu and votes for who should win which award.

Myriad of awards given on this night, i really can't remember it all. What i know is that this event is FANTABULOUS... officiated with the Minister of Tourism and other VVIP's!

What else can you ask for? BIG CARS... checked! BIG BOOBS... checked! HAhaha... Big FOOD platters... checked!!! Really enjoyed this event as i got to meet my old friends from Uni and other work places! We had little time to catchup, kinda promised to catch up out of this event but hehehe... i guess everyone is busy with their own. Now, let's enjoy the photos....

Chillin in Penang

Wasssuppp Shaz: Recently i was in Penang to chill, relax and recuperate... YES YES YES, i know i've been on so many HOLIDAYS recently from Penang to Singapore and back to Singapore again. Well we live our LIFE only once, let's make full use of it! ENJOY :)

Penang - the land of FOOD! Quite true, just like how people call Japan the land of the rising sun, well here in Penang you can NEVER go HUNGRY! There's simply just too much to eat! Even if you are a foreigner... you still can go find the BEST of what PENANG has to offer!

Why? Coz... Penang Tourism (State Government) has prepared a special brochure with the BEST of PENANG voted by YOU (locals / Malaysians / tourists) of its vest food outlets!

Each few pages will share with you specifically on a certain type of food! Let's say... Pg. 1-5 will share with you the best of Nasi Kandar in town! Their name, address and how to get there! Oh yea SPECIALTIES too.

Photobucket

Not forgetting, the best LAKSA, ABC, Popiah, Takua Rendang and much more! So if you are in Penang and wanna go for a food hunt! Check out the Tourism Office first and take the flyers available over the counter! This will be very helpful for both tourists and locals!

Was in Penang with my friend from Singapore - KELVIN and BENATHON.
Had so much fun going from one place to eat and eat and eat.... all the way from KL we non stop eat! Even at Ipoh we ate the all time famous NASI GANJA (which is situated just right beside the Police HQ).

HAhahahh... you must be wondering how many KILOS we gained after this food hunt trail! Well... just look at the photos then you will know. Trust your instincts when you wanna eat here in Penang! JUST ENJOY :)

Photobucket
This is a stall on HUTTON LANE, in between two buildings - features its Nasi Dalca most of the time but i come here for their Roti Telor Setengah Masak and Roti Bakar! AUTHENTICITY to the max with a guy who is still going strong at the age of 90! Long white beard serving you...

Photobucket
Kapitan CLAYPOT Biryani, i've never tasted BIRYANI this GOOD before! The Chicken makes a helluva lot of difference!!! Really... you can have Chicken Masala at other restaurants... and other types of gravy! But this here in Penang is DYNAMITE!!!

Photobucket
When you are on GURNEY DRIVE for some FOOD! Well not everything here has gone COMMERCIAL! Well some of them still keep their recipe close to heart like this stall #80. Their Soya Bean, Longan Jelly and Tau Fu Fa is DYNAMITEZ!!! Must try is their Longan Jelly, although it's sold in almost all the dessert shop here... but theirs is DA' BOMB!!!

Photobucket
This is Marianne, we had lunch together with Kelvin here at the all time famous BANANA LEAF restaurant in BANGSAR. Why is it famous? Well their CURRY is HERBALLY DYNAMITEZ!!! If you eat with your fingers... hands.. the smell will stay there for a while! Don't fret... once you have a good hand wash it will go off! Check out NIRVANA in Bangsar, opposite Bangsar Village 2 Shopping Mall.

Photobucket
Kelvin, if you gained weight during your trip here... please don't blame it all on me! HAHAHAHAH... yes we have great food here in MALAYSIA :)

Photobucket
Well that's all from me here for now... enjoy this blog for more FOOD posts and do checkout Edwin's Blog - http://www.clickclickculinary.com for more FOOD STUFFSS!
