No thanks to theQguides, babe_kl and Capt'n Hook were intoxicated 2 days in a row last week :p
The first, was to attend theQguides first makan (eating) and "minum" (drinking) session with some of the food bloggers (floggers) at Carlsberg, Shah Alam. It was great meeting the good people from theQguides and their sisters plus brothers under Intergricity banner; some regular floggers; and quite a number of new faces.
We were kinda excited browsing through Carlsberg drinking hole right at the factory but nope, there wasn't any factory tour nor tasting. We did however get to try whatever that were available there right off the taps and also in their cold cold fridges. I personally liked the COLD version which came super smooth and icy cold as they were freeze under -2C before coming out of the frozen tap, yes it was really frozen!
Right after some food, Jek and Lisa of theQguides gave us an insight as to what theQguides is all about and I have to say it's something terribily exciting for all foodies. theQguides will be launch later so do watch out this space for the date and details.
The following evening, we got ourselves invited to WIP "Closing" Party. As most of you have known, WIP as in Work in Progress located in Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC). Time do fly, one year have gone and it's time for WIP to morph into the concept filled with the patron's feedbacks. Based on Fred and Michelle (of Souled Out and 7atenine) sneak peak speeches... do watch out for a fun Ibiza based outlet and the food... a mix of Californian cuisine and more.
We can't wait to be back for their opening, scheduled anytime between two to three months. Will keep you all informed of the date. Meanwhile, WIP was packed to the brim last Friday with invited guests. There were free flow of *ahem* beer and Macallan plus of course delish finger food. We can't lay our hands off the yummy fried chicken wings and pudding! There was an auction to sell off some of their furnitures and fixtures that we didn't get to witness as we left early.
Remember okay... do come back often for the updates ;-)
babe_kl and Capt'n Hook would like to thank theQguides; the management of Carlsberg and WIP for having us. You guys are such wonderful hosts... yummmseeennnggg!!! (Sorry I know it's Monday but hey Friday's coming soon :p)
