As most of our table have S4 on it and its all sync up to the screen and if we are too far we can look the on the table, if you are baking with messy hands and need to see next page, don worry just as they have air gesture.
After pour everything in then mixing it with flour. .

The next big thing is in town. Those of you who seen my previous posting of preview on new Samsung is coming to town, (click here). Last Saturday, there is a series of road show going on, with some surprises as the sprung out of no where to make the whole scene alive.
What exactly am I talking about? I am talking about the new Samsung Galaxy S4 just launch in Malaysia last 27th April which is last Saturday. The event kick off at Sunway Pyramid with cheer leading and Marching Band ..
Follow to next venue at Times Square with a surprise flash mob with many performer dress up in blue that stun many shoppers . .
Lastly with their final stop at Low Yatt plaza that blast off many shoppers in the area with fancy clowns, man on stilts that make the whole atmosphere turn into Carnival theme.
Of course went to their nearest outlet to get my hands on S4 that much hype have stir up since last year, with even more fast & powerful unit to be roll out for the smartphone fans.
One cool thing about this phone is they have a tutorial guide included which fits perfect for a lazy person like me. Just click on the category and the program will bring you thru.
After much learning, scrolling and understand the features, it came down to 3 of the features that I like. First of all, is with this new features which I think is very cool.
Those of you who did watch Iron Man 3, I am sure you guys are impress with the technology being used in there. This is the same goes to me when I understand the technology on S4. Air View/Air Gesture surely catch my attention. Its a motion that can capture things without touching on your phone panel. Just go near with your palm or hand then it will direct capture on it. cool~
Recently I being influence by a friend on health tracker. Since then I did observe a few device on it then found out in S4 that this is the function that they have in it that makes it more interesting. S Health can track our habits with exercising, sleeping habit, food intake and many more. Now we can live a more healthy lifestyle.
Last but not least, I always need my phone camera to be top notch or at least clear. The camera function is supurb when I try out take a few shots at the outlet. The effect came by what you see is what you get. Not only that. It have dual shot function that enable us to shoot both ways by utilizing the front and back camera. See what this baby can do for you especially girls who love to camwhore.
13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels, autofocus, LED flash with HD video recording.
what you waiting for? The new Samsung Galaxy S4 is selling at RM 2199 and head to your nearest outlet to check the unit yourself. I am sure you will be impress too with its feather light weight phone.
One of the night to be remembered that recently I got one exclusive event invites that makes me excited is this Hennessy X.O Appreciation Grows. One of the reason is, we will get a chance to dine and pairing with Cognac that feature winner Chef Edward Lee from Iron Chef versus José Garces. I just could not wait for the event to happen.
One of the best invites so far that I have gotten and when I read the dress code, Black Tie I have to scratch my head for a moment as all my clothing left at hometown. As I am left with 2 days before the event, have to borrow a coat from my friend along with a tie to prepare myself for this grand event. The event took place at Hotel Equatorial. .
Here am I, for the first time in this close private functions and I am amaze how they transform this whole place into classy looking environment.
The star drink for tonight is Hennessy X.O.
Upon arrival, we are greeted with drinks from the bar, friendly waiter being ready to serve you anytime to have your drink neat, with water or soda. I always love to have my first glass neat to try out the taste then follow by water. 😀
Here you go as the new Hennessy X.O are being package into their new sexy curvy bottle.
We just have bottomless drink as our glass never runs dry. Whenever it half way trough and it was filled up by this effective and pretty girls.
Here we are and glad to see some of the bloggers (from left) – Wei Chin (KampungBoyCityGirl) , Me, Cheng Yi (Fatboybakes), Umei (CuminCiki) and Alison (Aly’s Wonderland).

Salud means bless you in Spanish, often use in tossing.
Never thought that I would see this happen in my eyes as this scene often happen in those reality program or shows that right before before each course, the chef appears on the screen to explain the inspirations behind the dish.
They even show a glimpse of moment showing live what’s happening in the kitchen. Impressive!
All of us are anxious for our food to arrive as we were prepared that how good the food will taste like.
First dish for the night, a starter called Mosaic
A colourful plate of starter with each side being carefully cut in squares, as each of the fresh ahi tuna & kona kampachi being paired along with a slice of tropical fruits each. I tried each slice itself as the tuna are very fresh and followed by combining both together gives another level of taste. Best to pair it along to get the best fresh and sweet taste of fruits at the end, every one just clear this dish in moments. Follow by a sip of cognac just brings out the aroma of sweetness.
Piquant is the next feature dish with lobster, sea urchin & salmon skin
Upon pouring the sauce onto the plate it smells so nice and sweet, just cant wait to have my fork to pick up each slice to put into my mouth. Indeed turns out to be the best among the feature dish, with one of a simple reason. Everything is fresh, simple yet get to taste the best out of it.
Paprika-spiced chilled sweet corn soup is just amazing on how the chef did it, as the chill gravy paired very well with with lobster that able to brings the best taste in both world without overpowering each other. The gravy/soup is just something we could not have enough. Wish it could be more! Everyone is enjoying this dish and satisfied look at the end!
Oriental serve along with lovely lemongrass-chili vinaigrette heightened with pickled jicama & Japanese eggplant. Not easy to cook a nice scallop which is pan fried on both side to maintain its best form upon serving and it was well presented. Slice the scallop and eat along with the sauce prepare and follow with a sip of X.O makes the taste even more exquisite.
Then during dinner there is a bottle of Limited Edition of Hennessy Methusalem that package in a custom made lamb skin covered traveling case in a 6 litre bottle. It is interesting on how they extract the cognac out from the bottle by using a long Rod!
The taste is much stronger, yet the after taste is mild towards the end. It is indeed one of a unique item as the production of this special edition are limited.
Provocateur is the main being serve and the name itself also sound umph! Steak tenderloin cooked with chocolate, jalapeno and decorated with toasted sesame seeds, with sides of spinach & mushrooms
Unfortunately my portion wasnt this, as mine is near to well done ..
Seductrice is one of the dish that many people hype about it as I should have chosen dish for my mains. Many like this because of its soft inside out and served with a pureed smoked sweet potato & Chinese cabbage
As the night proceed and we were entertain by a live jazz band and the singer is from Penang too . .Yay~
To end our night Allure came along on our table. Brioche crusted dark chocolate genoise cake, served with red beet syrup, and lightly sprinkled with pistachio & walnuts. Just a perfect way to end this marvelous meal!
At the end of our meal, here comes Chef Edward Lee being presented at the end. The mastermind behind all this superb meal.
It was a great night being the first time attending such event and surely a memorable one as the dish are just marvelous by pairing along with Hennessy X.O is just another level of taste being created.
