These photos will then be shortlisted by Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur and Leica Camera.

Following the end of the campaign, a collage consisting of all selected photos will be tabulated and posted as the hotel’s Facebook fanpage cover photo.

We are delighted to be working with one of the most prestigious camera brand in the world in conjunction with Mosaic’s anniversary. It is a different approach to the conventional way of celebrating anniversaries. We hope that with this campaign, Malaysians will take the opportunity to showcase their photography skills as well as helping us create a creative collage that will ultimately portray Mosaic as a fun and ideal venue for any kind of celebrations, occasions and gatherings,” said Frank Stocek, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur.

As we know now, Android phones are flooding the market now with more and more devices available, till date with one of the most impressive unit that still stood tall is this unit Samsung Galaxy S2, as I am one of the proud owner of that devices. Most of us know that its superior performance and cutting edge look, Slim, Vivid and Fast is what most user are looking for to blend with our daily live as to be connected anywhere or everywhere!

I am not a smart phone user and this would be my first and it surprise me that I never knew that the day of technology will develop so fast till, now a unit that integrate with intelligent AI that inside this phone, that command on a simple task by voice recognition. All this technology, I only thought it would just happen in futuristic movie like i-Robots, Minority Report, Iron Man and another few movie, and NOW we have it in our device already. Our Phone have IRIS.

What you need to do is just activate the AI then communicate with your phone like you can compose sms, to search for info online while you are doing other things, of course the best part is we can do freely on this while driving without worrying got spotted by police.

Normally, what do you do when you are waiting for your friends or client/boss who are late? For me one of the reason I am impress  at is their gaming source and playing at HD with no lag, superb video quality and its great to pass my time or without realizing my friend is here, instead of me keeping looking at my watch and start cursing why are they late!

Every one have their different favourte features, and I have shared mine. One of this video when I saw this in Facebook by my friend tagging me, I got all excited, with its Crash Test compare with another phone.

You might want to say, it’s a angle problem, drop hit on the ground might not land at the right side, as the end result, I am saying, it’s a solid phone and ‘ouch’ for another brand.

One of the main reason that I got this phone, its absolute performance on picture quality that satisfy me whenever I did not carry my DSLR along, that act as my assistant in many occasions is their impressive build in 8mb camera! This feature had actually came in handy in many occasions. By snapping and uploading the pictures into Facebook, share it with my friends when ever I come across something interesting especially food, I always tempt them with what I eat then get curse or hate by my friends as always I share picture at wrong time and occasions. :D, Besides that, on and off my work require me to take pictures to keep for internal usage, and I am happy that it is light, handy and just need to take out from my pocket and snap. The picture quality is great that even my superior is quite impress enough whenever I compile into my work! Till this feature is one of the important to me!

I get to know this place during my last trip back to Penang during Chinese New Year and came across that I peep from the outside entrance and caught my attention that I will try this restaurant during next trip. So here am I back to Penang again. As I got a review from my friend, as he celebrated his Valentine Day here, he gave a good feedback, good environment and food not bad.

I did not know they got awarded. Click to view..lol

I reached this place and full of mist and feel like in Penang hill, nope, was just accidentally caught by my camera effect and thought it is nice just post it up.

When I walked in here, I thought this was the area of having dinner but then see see the place so empty, aii…like wrong place like that, but turn out to be a Salsa bar, got to know it after I finish my dinner as there are a few couple having fun with their Salsa dancing which is pretty cool. Salsa lovers, here might be one of the place to hang out.
As you walked in, you will just fall in love with the environment that they have, very environment friendly and it is just so nice that you can sit there and eat and chat for the whole night.
This is one of the best place to walk with, it is full with flowers scent which is so refreshing with the mixture of water lilies, roses, sunflower and don know what other other.
It was raining that day so cant really enjoy sitting outside which make it a bit dissapointing so have to dine indoor. If not can enjoy the sound of the waterfall. For those people who enjoy cam whoring, totally highly recommend this place.
They did not use candle light as the romantic thing instead I find it interesting which is using the mini oil lamp to put on table. It was very classic though. Did thought of stealing it back..kekekke
Their interior was pretty classic classy, with wood table and chairs, a cosy environment to dine in especially with the one you love or your close friend to celebrate any occasions.
As usual, I will start my meal with a soup as this is the ‘Mushroom Soup’. It was quite a big serving so for a couple would encourage to be shared. This soup you can really taste wild mushroom, which is so not nice we only manage to finish half cause it had one weird taste. Do not know how to describe.
This is complementary from the house as what I have been told but seems like it comes with the soup if not mistaken. I would called it Cheeze bread’ cuz no garlic in there. Very nice cheezy baked taste. Freshly from the oven.
Here comes our main course, as we decided to share, do not know what to eat as during some where already eat some apong, mua chi before coming up. Ordered this because have 3 selection in there, it is called Ferringhi Mixed Grilled’. Tried the salmon, and it was bad, not fresh, overcooked, fish smell very strong, again I ask the waitress to come and ask them get a new piece for me as told them not fresh, well, manage to get me a new piece of salmon after waiting of 30 minutes, sure do the second piece is much better, the fish meat is much softer even though it is over cooked again, the salmon gravy on top just goes along very well.
Second is the lamb, well, we do prefer the lamb has the very strong smell of the lamb whereby alot people do not prefer, as it will go along very well with the mint sauce. So the lamb was well marinated to cover up the lamb smell, so we were quite disappointed on it. For people who do not like lamb with the strong taste, so I would highly recommend to order here.
Third piece is the chicken, the first thing when I use my fork to poke it in, Shit..overcook again. What is wrong with the chef in here la..every thing that I have is like overcook or is it their style of cooking. What the hell. No quality. The chicken was spread with some garlic spread on top. It would be very nice if the chicken is cooked 80% from the condition that I got then will be perfectly nice.
The potato with sour cream doesnt not taste good, the whole dish for this we were totally disappointed, lagi lagi with the price tag slap on this dish RM72.80. We feel that it is over price which make the quality of the food and the pieces that served out comes to be DAMM EXPENSIVE!!!!!
I always end my meal with a desert if not, I will feel like my meal is not complete. Ordered this ‘Home Made Creme Brulee. A big plate serve with small little potato portion. Do not mind on it but the best thing was the taste of the brulee is cold. Shock us abit. As all the time we dine it is warm with the top crust is fire burn to make the crust crispy, so it taste more like a pudding. Did not finish the desert also even thought it was so bloody small cup with the price of RM17.80. Maybe it was their style to make it cold.
It is because of the great environment they have I would give them 9/10 for that, but I cannot deny that I have bad experience in the dining for this restaurant, maybe I did order the wrong dish, will come back again to try some other food during special occasion and the best thing as they do offer other ala cart as low as RM11 such as Fried Rice and so on. So please do not think that this place is gonna be expensive. They offer from local food to western or even can order a few fried dish and rice and eat along. The total bill that came out was RM 124.
As for last, I must thank that waitress for serving us so well, as she had been very helpful. Thank you even though I do not know your name.
After they meal, we head to second round which is Sunset Bistro just in front of the restaurant.
