THE REFORMATORY | IMAGO

Definitely not for the ones with a weak heart.
Imago Shopping Mall has again produced a series of events for its patrons this coming Halloween. The Reformatory is the second event produced after the success of last year's event The Infirmary, that you can see long queues up to the main entrance waiting patiently to enter the haunted house. 

There will be two routes available - Route A and Route B.  There will be staff in charge in both routes to give a quick briefing of your mission before entering.  Blood pressure tests will be taken before queuing for the haunted house - this is to ensure all participant's current heart conditions are safe to enter. Please note that pregnant women are NOT allowed to enter the haunted house as well. Your age must be 16 and above to be allowed entering.

Enter at your own risk ;;;
Entry Ticket:
Spend accumulated receipts of RM100 and above at Imago Shopping Mall to redeem 1 entry ticket. 1 entry ticket qualifies 2 - 4 persons.

The Reformatory will officially opens on Friday, 14th October 2016 until the 13th November 2016. Don't miss out the chance! Thank you Imago for this Media Review invitation! I really enjoyed screaming my lungs out inside the haunted house.

Here is the background story of The Reformatory.  I had to say I am very impressed with the evil mastermind behind this whole event - so much creativity. (The texts below are taken from Imago's official FB page. I do not own this.)

Jonah Trish (Prisoner No. IM00015), Sam Welding (Prisoner No. IM00016), Gina Joseph (Prisoner No. IM00033), and Brenda Johnson (Prisoner No. IM00034), death row prisoners who long protested their prison sentences and claimed to be innocent of the crimes they were convicted, were all sent to a secret prison facility to be reformed, or executed if the rehabilitation fails. This secret facility is known amongst the inmates as The Reformatory. No one actually knows what happens there, but prisoners sent there never returned.

They woke one day to find their cell doors opened. The block they were in was silent. They left their cells slowly and stepped into the corridor. Blood on the floor. No, it was everywhere! As they stepped further, they found their fellow inmates on their bed, dead and desecrated. A voice called out from the dark at the end of the corridor. Two wardens, crawling on the floor barely alive, with blood flowing from their hands reaching out to them, begging for help.

The prisoners started running, a slithering sound chasing after them. They ran, only to find another warden trying to pry open the rusty metal door at the other end of the corridor. The lights flickered and went out. The air turned cold. Awfully cold. Evil cold. Chills ran down their backs. A dark shadow was slowly approaching them, and it whispered, “No mercy.” Are they alive or dead?

CONNECTING WITH LOVED ONES | ANCHOR SAY CHEESE! CAMPAIGN

Left to Right: First Love, Lady Marmalade, Cheeznie & Almond Rosa 
Anchor Food Professionals - the foodservice division of Fonterra Brands Malaysia together with its selected bakery partners launched their second phase of its Anchor Say Cheese campaign – an exclusive, limited edition range of Anchor-branded desserts. Lucky for us Sabahans, this new range of desserts are available exclusively at Port View Euro Bread.

While the previous phase introduced Japanese inspired desserts with a heavy usage of Anchor Cream Cheese, this year's selections is more into European themed desserts - and also featuring sweet breads as well. Yay for you bread lovers out there!

A close shot of the Lady Marmalade and First Love with the creamy fillings
The Lady Marmalade - a sweet bread with an orange infused cream cheese filling topped with a slice of orange candied peel. The bread is so fluffy and it paired well with the cream cheese filling and overall its not too over sweet at all!.  The First Love, on the other hand is a sweet bread with a dark brownish coating on the outside of the bun, with a brown sugar cream cheese filling with a good sprinkle of brown sugar for that additional crunch.  Both breads are sold at the price of RM2.60 each.

Left to Right: Cheeznie and Lady Rosa unboxed, cut into dainty slices :)
Cheeznie, a spongy version of chocolate brownies layered with a layer of light cream cheese filling and then topped with chopped walnuts. Both the brownie as well as the cream cheese filling does not over power each other - you can taste the chocolatey-ness in the brownies, you can taste the light, not to heavy cream cheese filling as well as the crunchy goodness from the walnuts. Yums!

Almond Rosa - This is my most favourite out of all the selections, I seriously felt like I am in heaven after eating the first bite. A light, fluffy sponge cake made from almond flour with a little crunch of almond nibs layered with the light cream cheese filling. Both cakes are sold at the price of RM6.00 each.

Time to dig in!!!
See those cute heart shaped spoons in the picture above? You can get this limited edition spoon when purchasing any flavour of the 2 cakes. 


These exclusive Anchor's signature creations are available at selected bakeries throughout Malaysia from now until December 2016 so do not miss it! Hurry to any of the Port View Euro Bread outlets near you to try them out!

Bonus:

Here is Tom - paused midway because we told him to so that we can take our shots of the treats. Haha!
It's a KK Bloggers Gang meet up for us! Let's do this often :)

TAVERN KITCHEN & BAR | IMAGO

Tavern Kitchen & Bar's creative interior
I love the fact that how KK is opening up alot of eateries that serves different kind of creative and interesting cuisines. Fusion is one of my favourite cuisine as I love dishes that are created with idea of East meets West. I'm happy to find a new eatery to try such cuisine.

This would be my second time visiting Tavern Kitchen & Bar - just thinking of that delicious Soft Shell Crab Burger makes my mouth water! I'm pleased to be back here again to sample their other signature dishes. Please make sure you have already eaten before scrolling down to read the rest of this post... heh. ;)

Black Spicy Chicken Wingies
Crispy chicken wings coated in a black sticky sauce with a good hint of spiciness. Chicken wings are always fun to it. *licks fingers with happiness*

Crispy Cheese Sticks
Who doesn't like cheese? Specially when it is coated with a thin layer of batter and then deep fried till golden brown.  You can hear the crunchy sound while taking a bite of this - crunchy layer on the outside... gooey cheese on the inside. Sooo Goood.

Spaghetti A La Sabah
I thought this was a normal Mee Goreng - until I noticed it was actually spaghetti noodles lol! The fresh and generous seafood such as prawns, scallops and squids added more points to this dish.

Seafood Tom Yam Noodle Soup
I love this. If you are a seafood + tom yam lover, this dish is definitely for you. I love the spiciness of the soup with a slight tangy taste from the tomatoes. Big thumbs up!

Nasi Aduk Warung Bali
Reminds me of my travel to Bali. Quite similar to their local Nasi Campur. Love the sambal very much. I love spicy foods.

Nasi Goreng Kampung
Lots of ikan bilis, goes well with the acar and spicy sambal at the side. Yums!

Sweet Teriyaki Salmon x Fried Rice
The salmon was well charred without spoiling its tender flesh. The fried rice is yummy... and I love how their dishes included fresh salad to balance out the whole meal. (:

Mile High Beef Burger w/ Charcoal Bun
TBH this is a quite a bit let down.  The burger bun was a little too mushy and the beef patty is too dry. 

Chicken Pie A La Tavern
Ooh, I like this. A deconstructed chicken pie where the filling and the puff pastry was separated. Love the creamy chicken filling layered gooey melted cheese on top. Mmmm....

Lamb Shank Pie
This is a very interesting dish. Instead of the usual stewed lamb shank, this is formed into a pie... and the filling tasted like... curry-ish? The lamb meat melts in the mouth along with the puff pastry... serves with refreshing salad.


Although the food and drinks are on the pricey side, the waiters / waitresses here are very friendly and their services are seriously tip top. Will I be coming back soon anytime? Definitely! Their drinks and desserts selections are what I will be targeting next. Do wait for my return! :)
