It's almost the end of the 3rd week for fasting, don't you just smell the raya atmosphere everywhere?
This celebrative season, our friendly neighbourhood mall - 1 Utama brings you another set of elaborated mall decorations (just like their Christmas'14) and great raya promotions that can be enjoyed by everyone!
When i first stepped into 1 Utama's new wing LG Oval concourse, was totally blown away with the decoration concept. They literally brought a whole kampung to the mall, even with real soil & grass lol that's like taking decorating to a whole new level 8D
But yea, feels really like my hometown back in Malacca with all those colourful lights, traditional kampung houses, plus their surrounding vendors are selling yummy raya kuihs & biscuits.
Looking deeper into 1 Utama's "Makan Village" set up, it isn't just plain props but actual working ones especially their kitchen where live cooking demos that will be conducted.
To catch your favourite top chefs upclose in action, make sure to take note of these dates and timing.
- Chef Zaidah (11 July - 5pm)
- Chef Sherson Lian (12 July- 3pm)
- Host of "Dairi Mangkuk Tingkat" Ili (5 July- 3pm)
They will be sharing with you guys on their passion for food & cooking, also you will get to learn some useful cooking tip & techniques from them.
Yesterday i've got to see Chef Sherson Lian live, even got to learn how to make my own curry powder from him. He is known as "Our very own naked chef" in Malaysia who isn't only a chef but a multi talented person who does emcee-ing, hosting & he even sings.
