California Pizza Kitchen Serves Up Eight New Dishes!


KUALA LUMPUR, 24 July 2008 : California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), home of the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza and other innovative hearth-baked pizzas, made-to-order pastas, creative salads, appetizers, soups, sandwiches and desserts, has just introduced eight new dishes in the CPK menu today (24th July 2008).

Staying with CPK’s well-seasoned theme of combining interesting ingredients to create incredible flavours, the latest edition of the CPK menu includes eight delicious new dishes.

The menu features the Miso Salad – that has shredded Napa cabbage, fresh avocado, edamame, crispy wontons and rice noodles, all tossed in out unique Miso Dressing. CPK’s chef recommends trying the new dish with chilled-grilled chicken.

For something more traditional, try Mediterranean Salad. It is a chilled salad of cucumbers, red onions, fresh tomatoes and Greek olives tossed with crisp Romaine leaves and lemon-herb vinaigrette, served on a bed of hummus and topped with Feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and CPK’s very own homemade Tzatziki sauce. This salad is served with yummy pita bread.

CPK also introduces a specialty section in its menu consists of three pastas including two zesty new pastas – Chicken Piccata and Pan-Sautéed Salmon which are accompanied with spaghettini in a creamy lemon-caper sauce. Whereas the third new pasta dish is served with thinly pounded chicken breast sautéed with fresh mushrooms and grilled asparagus in a marsala wine sauce – this Chicken Marsala dish is served with linguini pasta.

Traditional pizzas also rule in this new menu with The Works, Italian Tomato & Basil and Sicilian. For dessert, the three layers of moist Red Velvet Cake frosted with vanilla bean, cream cheese and white chocolate curls will definitely be a hit with the rest of our legendary desserts.

Originated from Beverly Hills, USA, California Pizza Kitchen is a leader in California-style cuisine and is widely known for its innovative menu items. Children who dine at California Pizza Kitchen choose from an extensive menu, recently named "The Best Kids Menu in America" by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine.

The 2008 Suzuki SX4 Sedan at 88,888... why leh?

The new 5-door sedan from Suzuki called SX4 is reviewed to public today at New Wing of Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre, follows with the performance by Ning Baizura [thanks Ning... you still remember my name :p].

The SX4 sedan is reasonably sporty and offers versatility with the looks of a stylish family car. However, it might not be my top pick if petrol consumption, second-hand value and cargo space are my primary concerns.

The sedan is available in five colour choices – Nocturne Blue Pearl, Black Pearl, Silky Silver, Pearl White and Azure Grey. But today media and public only able to see one colour- Silky Silver - my favourite colour!

Two variants are available - the standard version is priced at RM88,888 (on the road, without insurance) [i wonder, why 88,888? Is it because of the model has a number '4', then to 'buang soi', the price comes with five 8s? - who can answer me?], and if you would like a sportier version (called Premier Package), which includes items such as 17-inch wheels, leather seats, door visors, window tinting and full body kit, you’ll have to fork out an additional RM5,000.

More story on Suzuki SX4 sedan in Star Motoring is here.

Bryan Adams - The Best of Me (2008)

04. SUMMER OF '69

This is the song i love most. I felt in love with the song the first time i listened to it.
Soooo touching!

"...Please believe me
Every word I say is true
Please forgive me
I can't stop loving you
Still feels like our best times are together
Feels like the first touch
We're still gettin' closer baby
Can't get close enough
I'm still holdin' on
You're still number one
I remember the smell of your skin
I remember everything
I remember all your moves
I remember you
I remember the nights ya know I still do..."

Hellboy II: The Golden Army [OST] [2008]part1

Hellboy II: The Golden Army [OST] [2008]part2

Hellboy 2: The Golden Army

I just watched the movie (Hellboy 2: The Golden Army) in GSC Signature, The Gardens after the launch of Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology today 5:30 to 7:30pm. Hellboy is a humanoid creature born in the flames of Hell and brought to Earth as an infant. Raised in secret, the adolescent “HB” becomes an agent for the secret Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development (BPRD), a covert government agency which serves as the planet’s line of defense against otherworldly evil. Selma Blair will also reprise the role of Liz Sherman, a pyrokinetic human who is HB’s colleague and love interest. “Hellboy 2″ will expand the world of Hellboy and surround him with characters both new and familiar as he confronts a deadly threat to mankind.

What is syiok about the movie... cuz it's FOC! Thanks to Intel. To those you enjoy special effect, no doubt it's very entertaining. As for me, i don't really enjoy this genre - sci-fiction+fantasy. For a big screen movie, I would rather go for action-adventure like James Bond's "007: Quantum of Solace" or Jet Li's "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor", or Harrison Ford's "Indiana Jones".

Hotlink 365 Stretches Prepaid Validity to 365 Days

Mr Tan Lay Han (right), Maxis Head of Consumer Marketing, launching Hotlink 365, the first prepaid service that stretches prepaid validity to 365 days.

Kuala Lumpur, 16 July 2008 - Hotlink, the country’s no. 1 prepaid service from Maxis Communications Berhad (“Maxis”), today redefined the Malaysian prepaid mobile market with the introduction of Hotlink 365. This new service is the first of its kind to be offered in Malaysia. It allows the customer to make and receive calls for the entire 365 days, thereby enabling full utilisation of prepaid credit balances within the period. Customers now can enjoy uninterrupted service over the 365 days. To subscribe to Hotlink 365, prepaid customers only need to pay RM33 for the one-year validity, and top up RM30 within the first six months of signing up.

At the launch of the Hotlink 365 today, Tan Lay Han, Maxis Head of Consumer Marketing, said, “Hotlink 365 is a new service that offers our customers a more innovative option for mobile connectivity. Current prepaid services in Malaysia offer validity periods of between 10 to 30 days, and customers are required to reload to be able to make outgoing calls. With Hotlink 365, customers have the flexibility to reload anytime to make calls within the 365 day period. The customer’s line can remain active for just about 9 sen/ day. We are certain that Hotlink 365 will benefit our customers by allowing them to keep their lines active for a longer period.”

Both existing and new customers can subscribe to this service. To subscribe, Hotlink customers need to ensure the account is active with a minimum balance of RM33. The customer then needs to dial *108*6#. RM33 will be deducted from the account. The customer will then receive an SMS confirmation within three days informing her that her prepaid validity has been extended by 365 days.

If the customer still has paid validity in her account, her new validity will include both the existing paid and the new 365 day validity. All benefits earned by existing customers will remain intact after the activation of this service.

Hotlink has consistently been offering innovative products to its customers. It recently extended its Activ5 programme to an Activ10 programme that offers customers cheaper mobile rates for calls to 10 friends and family members, and also introduced the Super Savers programme which offers cheaper calls via creative bundling packages. Both programmes can be activated easily by dialling *100#. Hotlink 365 is the latest in Hotlink’s value offerings to its customers. For more information, please visit

According to the 22-year-old, ‘Fence’ was the group’s 2nd year multimedia major assignment at The One Academy. A story about social segmentation between races, Fence describes the story about 2 kids breaking the racial barrier between them & crossing over the fence of racial differences.

“We’ve all totally forgotten about the competition. It took JVC about one year to finalise the winners, so we thought we didn’t win when there was no news from them. So, the award was a real surprise!” said Reuben during an interview with El Wong after the prize presentation.

SONY Launches BRAVIA Family in One Utama

"Sony... are you ready to launch BRAVIA V400 & S400 Series?"
"On the mark..."
"Get set..."



Redefine realism and experience true-to-life picture quality of Sony’s Bravia Full HD LCD televisions as Sony Malaysia expands its industry-leading LCD television range with the new Bravia V400 and S400 series.

The new Bravia V400 and S400 series, including Full HD models from the 40-inch onwards, offer new and improved features such as Bravia Engine 2, Intelligent Picture and MPEG Noise Reduction to enhance the image quality from standard definition sources.

The Bravia V400 and S400 series feature Sony’s ‘Draw the Line’ concept — designs inspired by the horizon where beautiful images float above it.

The new V400 classic black exudes an impeccable sense of grandeur as it fits seamlessly into every living hall.

In addition, the V400 series 32-inch model comes in blazing red, pure white and elegant brown. The S400 series on the other hand arrives in several playful and vibrant colours for its 20-inch LCD television. The available colours include youthful green, charming pink, refreshing blue, cheerful orange and sleek silver.

“Sony continues to be a forerunner in the LCD television market by delivering more Full HD models that feature cutting-edge technologies such as Bravia Engine 2 and Intelligent Picture,” said managing director of Sony Malaysia Naoi Sudo (centre in above picture) during the launch of the new Bravia V400 and S400 series at One Utama shopping centre yesterday.

“Combined with Sony’s trademark stylish design and attention to details, such as sound quality and convenient connectivity, we seek to once again deliver the ultimate home entertainment experience through our new Bravia V400 and S400 series,” added Mr. Taku Taguchi (pix above - he is not singing karaoke with Celine Dion), General Manager, Product Marketing Division. He said the launch of the new Bravia V and S series offers even more options and wider range of Full HD models for customers to choose from as the company continues to cultivate the development of this market.

The Bravia Engine 2 is a fully digital picture-enhancement engine that leverages Sony’s advanced algorithms to portray vibrant, crisp images that remain true-to-life. Redefining seamless connectivity, the new Bravia V400 and S400 series are equipped with Bravia Sync technology and three DHMI input outlets for hassle-free connectivity with entertainment devices like the Sony Handycam, Blu-ray disc or digital video disc players and home theatre systems, regardless of people’s needs.

For that ultimate entertainment ambience, the Bravia V400 and S400 series also come with new S-Force Front Surround that expands the listening area to deliver amazing virtual surround sound with just the in-built television speakers. Together with 24P True Cinema technology that incorporates the 24-frame-per-second film-motion imaging standard, the Bravia V400 and S400 series recreate an authentic theatre experience right in the comfort of your home.

Sony unveiled the V400 and S400 series at a roadshow in One Utama Shopping Centre.
