(Event) Taiwan Tourism Promo ft. MasterChef Chef Dato' Fazley Yaakob

So much tourism promo happening... but I dare not purchase anything coz my schedule is just so spontaneous and not sure how to plan.

This round is Time for Taiwan -- Taiwan Tourisim promotion Event 2017 !!
and deep down I am shrieking with excitement!!! :)


Coz my childhood mostly have been in Taiwan.

I miss being there.

Those carefree days :)
As a child, I do not really know about exploring and appreciating Taiwan, until, I came back Malaysia. Miss the famous Stinky Tofu, uncountable choices of milk teas and etc.

Event entrance
18th March 2017

May I just complain that the parking of Seri Pacific Hotel, KL sucks soooo bad?!
I got there late and more late coz I round the second time before I decided to go for the jockey service. Didn't know its RM25 (base rate for Jockey service) plus hourly rate. Not only that, I am attending the event for a near 1 hour only. Wth. However, the person who ask me to pay might be irritated by me coz I was really annoyed and surprised by the amount that I had to pay...in the end I paid RM20 for 1 hour. Still. *sigh* Please take public transport if you are going to this area!!!

Luckily I did not reach too late!
Just in time to snapchat the handsome Masterchef, Chef Dato' Fazley Yaakob, entering the room while singing 朋友 (Friends) in Cantonese.

  1. I have never been to Taiwan before, but I have tried a few Taiwanese restaurants in my city and I love the food. I would love to visit Taiwan and try their food locally.
