On the 3rd of November a sensational culmination took place at the Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre making the trilogy ended with a big bang. The Global Art of Mixing Trilogy is the event that took place on the day that I have been always looking forward for this event and never miss it for the past 3 years. Its a event with an extraordinary mix of stellar musical acts from across the globe, a trademark H-Artistry atmosphere along with their signature drink.

At the stroke of 10pm, the crowd quickly shifted into the party arena, and energy levels were pumping in sync with the crowd’s excitement, shrill screams of the female K-Pop fans in the crowd were Block B, who immediately broke into song and dance with their infectious track “Nilili Mambo”.

HA Finale (22)

Showcased their rap, vocals and dance prowess to put on a stellar demonstration of the quality and showmanship of K-Pop music is.

HA Finale (23)

As Block B bowed out, the next artist to take the stage was Alexandra Burke, who immediately stamped her vocal authority as the prima donna of the night. Among the highlights of Alexandra Burke’s performance were live renditions of “Heartbreak on Hold”, “Elephant”, and her hit track “Bad Boys”, featuring Flo Rida. However, the crowd exploded in exhiliration when Alexandra Burke invited Block B up on stage for an exclusive H-Artistry collaboration.

As for this round, we are invited along to sample their mooncake creation for this year  2012

MO (5)

As I see the display that prepared for us, I just cant wait to sample any of those. It just look appetizing as mooncake is a once a year celebration and I always ended up eating alot.

MO (6)

The molding of Mandarin Oriental logo is so nice on the traditional mooncake.

MO (10)

If I got a chance to skip nutty mooncake I would just skip it, as I just do not prefer these nutty type, but the rest were enjoying every bite of this as they said its just lovely. Rich in ingredient and fragrant.

MO (11)

You may say I am classic yet I still prefer the classic Lotus paste with single yolk. Lotus paste is smooth, and I just love the skin texture as it  is a bit like smooth sand, and aromatic skin. Perfect!

Besides this, they do offer other classic mooncake too such as  white lotus paste, lotus paste with single yolk, lotus paste with double yolk, red bean and lotus paste with single yolk and diced chicken ham with almond.

pandan flavour mooncake & Durian mooncake – Back: Blueberries and grated coconut

For Durian snowskin, this is by far one of the best I have come across as they use D24 to make it along and it taste exactly like eating durian yet in chill version. – Recommended!

Jeng Jeng Jeng, this is by far the section that I am staring at the whole night. For the first time I come accross Chocolate mooncake!

Available in 4 different flavour and 4 if it looks very tempting and mouth watering.

MO (13)

Dark chocolate with star anise and red bean ganache

MO (14)

White chocolate with orange ganache and cream

Milk chocolate with peanut butter crunch If you give me 4 pieces of this, I would be very happy, as among the other 3 I prefer this more. I guess I am bias one side as I just love anything with peanut butter. Not too milky chocolate and the peanut butter just pair well. It just give you the feeling like you are eating Reese peanut chocolate.

MO (15)

Dark chocolate with salted caramel ganache

MO (17)

I just love double boil soup. As this was place infront of me, I can just smell the sweet scent of soup occupying the air as I quickly capture the picture and get a soup of it. It just taste awesome sweet as like how the smell occupying that instant moment. Imagine how good the soup would be that is filled with huge scallop and abalone that is juicy and chewy. It is something worth spending on this Double-boiled Abalone Soup with seasonal dried deluxe seafood and baby cabbage at RM 188.

MO (18)

Jasmine Tealeaf Smoked Chicken, chicken meat is soft and if flavourful with tea leaf flavour. Slight moist with the sauce that pair along and eat along with the garlic just make the whole taste more outstanding. @ RM38

MO (19)

Another eye opener as Crispy egg noodles with Assorted Seafood and Vegetables @ RM 48. Crab is succulent sweet with huge scallop and noodle been deep fried that store along with gravy.

something which might look simple to cook along yet Special seafood Fried Rice being cook evenly fragrant that filled with wok hei that makes every one enjoy every bite of it.  RM36

MO (21)

Durian pancake @ RM38 – for 3 pieces

MO (22)

One of the best pancake you can get around the area, as I gulp this whole big piece in one bite and let the aroma burst into my mouth. Strong taste of durian detected with a good quality durian being included as the meat, wrap along with thin fried egg slice then chilled along. Taste awesome!

Last trip of back to Penang, Seh Poh Kio the first thing when I reach back after dumping all my luaguage back at home and went to pick up my friend, heading to Seh Poh Kio for supper. There are very limited places in Penang to hunt for Chinese food during at night after 12am. I was craving for burger that night around 1.30am.

The business of this stall its good at most of the time, depends on your luck when you dropping by that you have to wait long or wait for a while. Luckily on that night I did not wait for long as I was the 3rd person only.

The stall owner is the one leg kick person. Cook, wrap, and sell

My order was ‘Chicken Burger Special’ (Pg version means with Cheese and egg) as I love the version here as one of the best, well cook that preserve the taste of the slice of the chicken meat and well wrap around with the ngam ngam cook egg and top with a slice of cheese and cover with a layer of mayonnaise. RM4 if not mistaken.

Besides this stall that I usually enjoy eating from the thai hawker stall behind it was the ‘Fried Tomyam Maggie Mee’ a style of its own, not too spicy yet soury and filled with mini seafood is a taste that I am missing but on that night, the taste had change not as nice as it used to be. Still not bad but not as craving taste already. RM5
