YOUTH’S SPIRIT SYNERGISTIC STRATEGIC ALLIANCE CEREMONY

Mind the long title... but well it's the ceremony given to me anyways... Hahahahaha...

Ninetology appeared to be the prominent player in the telecommunications industry with the signing of Synergistic Strategic Alliance between Ninetology, TuneTalk and Qualcomm at Grand Dorsett Hotel, Subang Jaya, Malaysia, recently.



From left to right: Mr. Sean Ng Chee Heng (Chief Executive Officer, Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd), Mr. Jason Lo (Chief Executive Officer, Tune Talk) and Mr. Mantosh Malhorta (Senior Director of Business Development Country Head Philippines, Singapore & Malaysia, Qualcomm Incorporated).




Welcoming you at the entrance of the hall was a state-of-the-art Lamborghini Gallardo accompanied by sexy models. Guests also can enjoy the massage chairs or massage by personnels of thanks to Relax Time. There are also posters showing the event’s theme. There is also a performance by Koujee, the winner of Malaysia’s Tag-Team Beatbox Battle 2011.


Another important highlight of the event was the launching of Ninetology Pearl Mini with the theme “Experiencing Differences with The Youth’s Spirit”. Pearl Mini is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The good news is that Pearl Mini will be packaged with Tune Talk’s prepaid service. Pearl Mini is now available in all Ninetology and TuneTalk retail outlets and the RRP is RM399 which is very affordable for our youths. Note: I have not laid my hands on one of these for the review so I am neutral on this product... Will update more once I have my hands on one...

The packaged plan include RM50 FREE Talktime (comes preloaded with SIM) and RM100 Airtime Rebate (RM10 x 10). To get this rebate, one needs only to reload RM20 or more in any denominations each month. For more information on the Tune Buddies SIM pack, visit http://www.tunetalk.com/my/services/tunebuddies.


Another tablet on display on that day included the Ninetology Outlook Pure, which cater to the needs for bigger size screen touchscreen device. The RRP is RM599 and would be very affordable for the general public.

Restaurant Zi Zai Review (non halal)


I was invited for a food review at this hidden restaurant at the Paya Terubong area in Penang. Little did I realize that this restaurant was already well known to people around the area. Known for it's "home cooked food" like dishes, the owner tries his best to give the highest quality food at the cheapest affordable rate to his customers.(I actually talked to one of the regular customers there to find this out)


This is Poon Choi/Pun Choi or also known as Big Bowl Feast, an original traditional Cantonese dish. 


It has Sea Cucumber, Yam, Chestnut, Roast Duck and Chicken, Pork Skin, Stewed Pork topped with Fresh Prawns, Abalone Slices, Meat Balls, and Brocolli. Priced at RM 418, this is definitely a catch that could serve a family of 12 persons eating this dish alone. The down side is that you would need to order at least a day earlier and pay a deposit as it takes time to prepare this dish.


Next priced at RM10 we have the Stir Fried Romaine Lettuce which in my opinion is one of the common dishes cooked at home which would suit from old to the young ones.


Then we have the Bean Sprouts with Sauteed Bacon and Preserved Egg Yolk



Zi Zai's signature UHAHA and ULALA which would definitely make you go ULALA. Priced at RM12 each, you get fresh prawn and clams which would definitely go well with rice or eaten alone.


We then have the Pork Knuckle braised with potatoes. The potatoes were cooked till soft and best of all it absorbed the taste which makes this a must try. This dish is priced at RM 20. One sure way to order this dish is to shout "TUKAR!!!"(which means change in Malay language or Pork Leg in the Hokkien dialect)


"Budae Jjigae" or Korean for Army Base Stew is just one of the few things that the chef is experimenting on. Served with local ingredients like luncheon meat, mini sausages and cheese, this dish is a little spicy and best served with noodles. This dish would be one of the dish I would return for if I visit there and if the chef decides to do this in the mass. 



Another one of the chef's experimental dishes. A fusion of Asian and Western taste, this mew creation, Mantis Shrimp Thermidor with Yaki Udon is baked with a layer of cheese on the top. While the cheese taste is a little soft in this, I find this dish unique on it's own catering for the young ones.


Environment: 3/5 (Clean chinese shoplot hawker style)

Service: 3/5 (The staffs are friendly and helpful)

Taste: 3/5 (Original taste and the chef always experiment with new dishes and cooking style)

Consistency: 4/5 (I didn't get the chance to visit again but from the conversation with one of the aunties, it's quite consistent)

Price: 4.5/5 (One of the cheap and good chinese restaurants)

Penang World Music Festival 2013

When I first signed up, little did I know I would be selected as a Liaisons Ambassador. So what did I do?


The experience I had was once in a lifetime thing. From the time I met the group I was in charge of, Kalayo from Philippines in the airport to the end where I sent them off at the airport, the bond was totally indescribable by words.


The press conference..

 The concert going on..


I have also learnt something new that there are no barriers in Music. Music is the common language. What do you do when your band is stopped at the immigration's door and was sent back leaving you alone? Kimi Djabate rise from that experience, coupled by performers from different bands helping him out, made the show even better.

Having the privilege of the back stage access and being close to the bands, I even joined them in their backstage galore in preparation for the finale which happens about an hour before the real deal on stage. Believe it or not, we actually didn't rehearse anything prior to that. Everyone just joined in with one or more instruments. There were singing, musical instruments blown, drums beaten, sound of the gong ringing in the ears creating the musical harmony I have never heard before.
  

Not to mention the crazy volunteers I met and worked with during the event. Without them, this event would be really unorganized. We worked together, shared experiences and eventually turned friends.


The crowd going wild waiting for the finale


The finale...

  
 Every now and then, thinking back. I miss those guys and girls from the festival and oh yes, the music is still ringing clearly in my head..
