GAB Oktoberfest 2015

What’s in store for beer lovers this Oktoberfest?

GAB Oktoberfest 2015 - GAB VIP
GAB VIP including Hans Essaadi, MD of GAB. Wouldn’t you love his job; to drink freshly brewed beer all day and night? No? That’s not his job? Okay then.

This year, GAB Oktoberfest is going local! This means celebrating with the beers that we know and love, even if they are not Bavarian. We’re looking at you, Guinness and Kilkenny!

GAB Oktoberfest 2015 - going the Irish
Irish tumpang glamour

At the GAB Oktoberfest media night at The Tavern, we were given a taste of the fun evenings to be expected for the entire month. The DDFK band entertained us with traditional Oompah music, comedian Andrew Netto made us laugh, enthusiastic girls and boys made us dance the chicken dance… all this while feasting on beer-infused food. Rock on!

I could post the most beautiful photos in the world, but people will balik-balik be interested in the ones of girls showing legs in short dresses. Here, objectification begins.

Can’t say no to beer-infused food! You can, but I won’t!

Hana Dining + Sake Bar, Sunway Pyramid

So many Japanese eateries in town, but few that boast a dedicated sake bar for rice wine enthusiasts. Is sake that niche a market in Malaysia, or is the local drinking crowd just starting to catch on? A conundrum perhaps, one that the folks … [Continue reading]

Urban Stove: ingredient + recipe delivery service

Cooking is more than grabbing the few nearest ingredients closest to you, dropping them into a boiling pot or sizzling pan, and voila! The cooking process starts earlier at planning. What food to cook? Which cuisine? For how many people? Do I … [Continue reading]

Breakfast in Batu Pahat

A few of my family's favourite picks. 1) Fock Yen Dim Sum Dim sum in Batu Pahat is like dim sum in Klang - slightly odd in a Hokkien populated area. Expectations must be managed; the finesse ranks the same as an average tasting dim sum shop in … [Continue reading]

Riverside hawker centre, Batu Pahat

Growing up, we'd frequent the Riverside Hawker Centre - popularly known as "Hai Kee" or "He Bian" to feast on our favourite eats. The end of Jalan Rahmat leading to the river. I love this part of the road come evening; the colours of dusk … [Continue reading]

Ah Chew Laksa @ Glutton Street, Batu Pahat

There is something about Batu Pahat laksa. It is not as famous as Penang curry mee. But it is also less oily and less rich, though no less satisfying. The coconut milk gravy is lighter, so you can enjoy it often without worrying about arteries … [Continue reading]
