Seeties Gathering @ Sen of Thai

Hello everyone! How was Chinese New Year? Hope the year of Monkey is treating you well with lots of wealth!

So today I wanted to share a gathering which I wanted to be part of a few years back but I can't due to my full time job. So this year I managed to attended Seeties first ever gathering for 2016!

I always loved Thai food and finally I can indulge Thai food this year all thanks to Sen of Thai!

I am the first one to arrive so I took a few photos~
\
The interior is really interesting, I taught It was a coffee shop!
And here is the menu, totally resembles the coffee shops concept which you can find at the Klang Valley

I met lots of new bloggers (I am a comic blogger and I receive media kit firsthand so I rarely went out unless being invited) and finally the Seeties staff.

After around 20 mins of networking and chit chat, finally the food has arrived!! Weee!

Lots of choices! Thai style!

I present this awesome dish "Thai Baked Mussels in claypot with basil leaves"

This is one of my favorite "Steamed prawn topped with lime chili sauce"!

Not to forget this special dish "Deep-fried siakap with signature Thai chili sauce"

And finally this dish caught my eye which is the "Stir-fried broccoli with scallops"

So what's else on the table? So I have listed the rest of the dishes below:

1. Yam Spring rolls (Po Piah Tod)
2. Classic Pad Thai ( Stir Fried thai noodle)
3. Cranberry Pineapple fried rice
4. Royal Thai Loop Chop (Colorful candy)
5. Sago Honeydew
6. Tab Tim Krob ( Thai Red Ruby)
7. Crab Spring Rolls
8. Tom Yam Goong (Creamy tomyam with prawn)
9. Sizzling beef with black pepper sauce (Nuea Phad Prik Thai Dam )

Honestly the food is awesome and magnificent, I recommend to come in groups so you can fully enjoy the uniqueness of Thai food here! Last but not least, here is the group photo!

Tadaaaa! Wefie mode! 

It was a great experience and I am glad to be able to meet everyone and enjoy the delicious Thai food at Sen of Thai! If you wish to visit the restaurant, I have included the contact information below!

Share the happiness


Chinese New Year is coming, share the happiness and learn to GIVE BACK to the people you love most.


Tips on Giving a Gift

Do remember to remove the price tag. 
A gift with a price tag is a hint to the receiver that the gift is expensive, and that the sender is expecting a gift of the equal price.

Don’t give the gift publicly, especially if giving a gift to only one person in a group (to avoid embarrassment, an appearance of favoritism, etc.).

Do not visit a recently bereaved family at Spring Festival, if the Chinese family had the funeral less than a month before Chinese New Year, as this is said to be unlucky (bringing more funerals in the coming year).

Take a pair of gifts with you, as Chinese people believe that good things should be in pairs.

So now you have it! That's the reason it's is 2 (Double Hapiness)

Inside Social Grooves (Meet the Team)

It's been a week since I am officially in the office. 

Met these extraordinary people in the office and I am feeling very young and stylo whenever I'm around this bunch!

So firstly let me introduce the people in #TeamSG (Team Social Grooves)


The Great Christopher : Also known as the TECH guy, the founder of Social Grooves and my (Fill in the blanks, its must be positive) partner. Jess wishes that I changed those two phones into "$$" sign but obviously he's power lies within that two devices which I don't know what he is up to. And I totally agree with Jess :P

JessJie : Without her, the company literally can't function well (Sometimes I think she is Chris's ulti , something like a bodyguard in terms of silent strategist). She has that awesome powerful girl power which I gladly introduce her as once of the awesome girl for International women's day (True story). Her greatest ulti is the 2016MGONNAKILLYOUifyoumess withmeGun. No one dares to know what is that gun for, but trust me, don't even ask!

Sam: The Lin Dan lover. She works very hard (Sometimes a OT-holic, #macamyestapibukan) and YES, her ulti is teleportation. With that sign , she can literally go everywhere! Even nearer to her fav Lin Dan. She can even got her VVIP seats by just teleport there. Well, besides that she can also teleport to any places she wants.

Will: So he is the sorcerer of multimedia. He has the powers to make you leng zai or leng lui and VISE VERSA (you know what I mean). His ulti is "hopefully" the pen of everything, where he can create everything out nothing. If only he can create $$ then we can do more awesome jobs and hire people right? XD

Chevonne:
The copywriter, our company must have one (You know lah, my En Ge LISH is the bad at times). She has the belt (so if you mess with her, combines with Sam's magic LD card and  Jess's gun) no one can stand a chance! If life is like a RPG game, she recently got a +10 happiness from Macdonalds (The tray of happiness)!

Thomas:
The lord of finances. Okay, he manages your finances and makes sure everyone is paid. So he has that ability to hold, stop or block any money flow. So his ulti obviously is , money XD


And there you have it! The social grooves team!

Glad to be working with these bunch!

More stories and more to come!
Go go Team SG!

3 things I like about Comic Fiesta 2015

So this year I had a chance to visit Comic Fiesta 2015, the biggest convention for Anime, Comics and Games in Malaysia! All thanks to Solomon Freeman a.k.a the Godfather of Japanese culture & my awesome buddy Spinzer (Christopher) for the experience! I managed to doodle something and took a pic (see below):

Anyways, let's get to the main topic ~ Comic Fiesta happened last weekend, and it was an awesome blast! So here are 3 things I like about this year's comic fiesta!

1. Location 
Yup, this year's Comic Fiesta was held at MIECC (Mines International Exhibition & Convention Centre) and to me, it was possibly one of the best locations so far. Although Day 1 was super jam and it is a bit further but still, it is still good. I can say there is a mall nearby (well, just next to it) which is the MINES mall and there are two nearby hotels to choose from.

I normally use public transport to CF, but MIECC wasn't as accessible as KLCC, but CF has made effort of have Grab Car for RM5 off (Which is good!) and KTM is just a short walk away (Serdang KTM Station) or catch the bus no 414 from the KTM station. Not top forget that there is a water taxi that will fetch you straight to the Mines!

2. We can enjoy food from food vendors! There is a Maid Cafe as well!

For the first time ever (For me), I can now visit the food vendors located upstairs (Mezzanine Floor) and grab a bite before I continue to explore Comic Fiesta! To my understanding, in the previous CFs, it wasn't common to have actual food inside the hall but this time I can see booths like Thyme Out, Sakae Sushi and many more! And not forgetting to mention La Petite Fox which had it's own room!

3. Spacious
Besides the eating area at the Mezzanine area, I really can't deny that the hall is very very VERY spacious! It can even host 2 stages! There is even more at the 2nd floor, we have 2 panel halls and....a photography area! How cool is that?

So I attended one of the panel which is the awesome I.O.E.A panel where I got to know the origin of Otaku Culture and Japanese Pop culture!

In the end...
Well, this year's CF was an eye opening for me,. After meeting Solomon, he even suggest me to open a booth (Which I missed that chance lol), but hopefully I will have a chance to open a booth and promote #kendylife to achieve world peace (wink)!

Also I met some notable people, pro gamers, cosplayers and talented artists! Maybe next time I should cosplay as pikachu and walk around asking for more photos :P
Once again I would like to thank the organisers for bringing us another mind blowing, spectacular and awesome convention this year! 

How about you?  Do share your experience in the comments below.
