Last year it had been a crazy year as got bombarded by lots of ‘red bomb’(red invitation card for Chinese means wedding dinner) for some of my friend had decided to settle down with their loves one, I particularly got like every week 1 card since beginning of December till end of January. If just by attending all, I would just need to fill in a form and declare broke. Usually the food in the wedding dinner would not be so good and it always depends on which hotel or caterer and its a good news for couples planing to host wedding this year, certainly this would be a option.

It was not until few days ago, got an opportunity to take a glimpse at Grand Hibiscus Ballroom media tour that organize by Swiss Garden Hotel and also a chance to taste on their wedding package menu.

Swiss (3)

The ballroom is brand new that was just opened recently, and manages to host around 5 wedding dinner in such a modern design ballroom.

Every couple will demand for the design of their wedding hall, and to make the choice easy, Swiss Garden had a proffesional in house wedding planner to assist the couple to cater for their demand yet they also do have certain package and theme to go along for the night.

The wedding dinner that was just hosted the night before that the newly wed’s chose the theme of Lavender, which signifies calm and peacefull. Besides this, there are a few other theme such as, Rose, IRIS, Jasmine and a few more.

Swiss (6)

The whole ballroom and lighting will be decorated among the theme as the main colour for Lavender is light purple. I just love their modern design with a touch of nature with some of the wall lighting are flower’s design, so do the carpet. The ceiling colour will be set according to the theme too.

This is media review for the dishes of the night that the package ranges from RM750++ – RM1450++ per table.

Swiss (12)

‘An Infusion of Hot and Cold Combination’ was the first dish of the night.

Swiss (13)

It was fried very crispy on the outside till you feel like you are eating crackers and inside is filled with shirmp.

Swiss (14)

‘The japanese Octopus which is fresh and juicy, Fried Wan Tan and Fried Egg with Shark Fin and Egg Roe’

Swiss (15)

‘Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Crab Meat and Crab Roe’

Swiss (16)

As I would rate one of the best, love the starchy salty taste and with vinegar in dark maroon colour add on it, just pull out the taste of the pot cook aroma. The sharkin added in was genuine and top grade, that every sip we can taste the slices and the crab roe added in can just feel the rocky solid and a bit salty. Makes me remember the first bowl of shark fin when I try when I was young.

Swiss (17)

‘Kwai Fei Chicken’ something that look and taste very simple but had been cook to the best, the soup base taste is very mild, with Chinese wine, a bit of Chinese herbs, a bit salty taste in it and the chicken meat had been steam and cook to its juiciest and soft meat.

Swiss (19)

‘Red Garoupa “Yin Yong” Style’

Swiss (18)

This fish is one of the best dish with its meat so juicy and tender as the chef mention had used 8 hours of marination. Imagine it the succulent taste.

Swiss (20)

If you are a cheese lover, the meat had been dough and marinates well to stuff the cheese in it and fried under hot oil till it was golden brown and the cheese just melt. This is what we call Chinese version of Stuff crust pizza. It taste awesome and we had not enough of it.

Swiss (21)

‘Wok Fried Tiger Prawns “Yin Yeong” Style’

Swiss (22)

Salad mayonnaise prawn is rich in taste, not that creamy which suits the taste of old people with high cholesterol that the meat is chewy and fresh.

Swiss (23)

My preferred choice, as when I we took picture of this, the smell of the fried Nestum had just makes me put want to eat it instantly. It was fried till the aroma came out and its crispy to eat along with the prawn.

Swiss (24)

‘Braised Abalone, Sea Cucumber and Black Mushroom with Broccoli’. The first thing that came into my mind was the abalone that had been cut into cubes shows the sign of big abalone and the chef use ‘2 head abalone’ that been boil, steam and marinate with its gravy for a few hours that makes it so soft, juicy and chewy. The soup base is top notch!

Swiss (25)

‘Salted Egg Fried Rice’ fried with wok hei and the salted egg had just pull out the aroma and eat it with sambal, taste perfect.

Swiss (26)

‘Pastry Duets’

Swiss (27)

Swiss (28)

‘Double Boiled Shark’s Fin Melon with White Fungus and Honey Dates’
Which is something new to me, as one of the type melon that had been finely chop till it look like shark fin. Then cook under high temperature to get the sweetness of it out and mix with the rest of the ingredient that end me with 3 bowl of it.

The wedding dinner set menu certainly serves great quality of food that I would say with a classic touch in a modern feel. The Chinese dish taste is very authentic as what I feel. If wedding dinner with this kind of serving, surely it would make the wedding even more perfect.

Back in those years when I was studying, I was expose to Vodka with the very classic type which is Absolute Vodka with my very very first shot of that night had make me phobia of drinking it again. Since then, they had an improve range of Absolute Vodka – Pears, Blackcurrant, Vanilla, Mandarin, Citron and started to like that range with certain mixture, it surely pull up the kick on it.

Not until recently, Sidney tag me along to this brand new launching of Vodka at Changkat Bukit Bintang which I get the opportunity to expose myself to this brand new taste of it. Actually, it is not a stranger to me as I have seen the bottle on the market but never tried it before and since there is an opportunity come with this alcohol range, of course I am interested. This area had since gain its name to local and internationally which to me had transform to something more like Bangsar in town area.

I did not manage to capture the bottle so I have to loan a picture the net. Tonight, there wont be a big happy family around, but I am gladly to present you 3 sexy, slender chics to you with exquisite succulent fruit taste.

‘Skyy Infusion Raspberry’, ‘Skyy Infusion Lemon’ and last but not least ‘Sky Infusion Passion Fruit’ Their new range is to create for those desire fruit would be one of their ideal choices with their classic bottle design and make over to skinnier, taller overall, with a taller neck to suit the current contemporary lifestyle.

Twenty One Kitchen and Bar was being the selected place to host this wonderful launching, as I previously tried to arrange a birthday dinner here with nice, dim interior yet simple and classy look that gives you a relaxing feel that’s being my selected restaurant here besides that, I love their house music playing on the next level.


As we proceed to the next level on the event floor, you will be warmly welcome by this two great representative for Skyy Vodka.

We were there early, and it that was not many people on that time. As the time past, the people just filled up the place like minutes.As most of the people are attacking on the free flow of vodka serving and mingling around to widen their networks.

I consider this as their VIP area filled sofa’s and pillow which make up a great area to have birthday partie.
DJ spin deck area.
Of course must take picture with them la~ if not feel guilty. :p
Then I walked around to scout for my very first glass of Vodka till I came across this. Fresh passion fruit that infuse with vodka in it, a great way of combination that with the sour’ness of the passion fruit and the strong taste of passion fruit vodka had make it a perfect combination to eat it.

With their Skyy Vodka range this are the flavors that I manage to kidnap from the waiter. ‘Citrus in Lime’(if not mistaken), ‘Citrus in Orange’ and ‘Raspberry with Ice and crush fresh raspberry’. Every mixer distinguishes its unique in the flavor and Orange and Raspberry is my preferred choice.
The very next round, I saw a waiter brought a bunch of these serve to one of the table outside and I also do request for it. Looks nice and something which I don see around in the bar. A shot of Vodka with Raspberry, Lemon and Passion Fruit and my favorite among those 3 are Raspberry.

As the night proceeding where there is more people had filled up the place, the emcee had do some talking and presenting the range of Skyy Vodka and the best part is there is lucky draw and its not one, its many. Sidney was being one of the lucky winners. Then there are a few performances that arrange by them. One of it are:

I was standing way back when this guy was doing performance with its magic trick and if I do not remember wrongly this guy is one of the best magician in Asia. He was walking around to show us his magic trick. Some were impress, some were guessing what’s his illusion trick and some weren’t impress as they were busy talking. I were impress.

He showed us his empty hand and then make into fist and shoved the cloth in it.

He asked you to look carefully as he showed you his empty hand again. The next thing we know he starts to pull the cloth from the mouth. Yeng. I ask him what is his trick he said, this is magic…speechless. . . . . !
Next trick he is going to be one of the character in X-men. His flame hand trick.

It was a great night with me enjoying the shots and meeting new people there. Used to wonder when I can attend this kind of event and here am I which thanks to Sidney for tagging me along to this first alcohol experience and I had put this vodka range into my drinking list of course you have to ask the bar tender to recommend which is the best mixer to go with, from there you will be amaze how the taste will be.
