Tony Roma Ribs Eating Contest 2015 Launch

Many Malaysians pride themselves in being strict non-vegetarian or simply put  plain carnivores. This October and November, Tony Romas, famous for its lip-smacking succulent signature beef ribs and steak, pays special tribute to these meat freaks with the return of the highly anticipated Tony Romas Ribs-Eating Contest 2015. Besides bragging rights, the winners in the male and female categories can also indulge in Tony Romas celebrated ribs,completely free of charge for an entire year!

Meanwhile, customers who purchase a Beef 10 dish will get three entry forms.
Eight male customers and eight female customers will be picked in a draw at the end of the contest period to participate in the grand final of the contest. Scheduled to be held at Tony Romas in Komtar JBCC and Citta Mall, the final event will take place in the malls on 27 November 2015 and 28 November 2015 respectively.

While female participants have their challenge cut out for them, competing to eat Tony Romas indulgent Beef 3, the men will compete with the heavier Beef 10! The mechanics for the final event is simple enough  the fastest wins!

 photo TR_2650_zpseiflpz8t.jpg
Already, the contest has created a frenzy among hardcore meat eaters. Members of a Harley Davidson bikers club were recently seen patronising Tony Romas in Citta Mall to chomp down on the eaterys Bountiful Beef Ribs for a chance to qualify themselves for the contest.

Behind The Scene Tour

By AlienGoTravel

I went to Genting for Behind the Scene Tour with my parents and blogger friends last Sunday. It is an interactive tour that shows you how some things are operated in Genting. Everyone else takes the bus but since our house is quite near go Genting, my papa drove up instead. When we arrived, we were greeted by a group of Genting staff and Miss Irene, the cute PR lady personally lead us to our first stop, the huge laundry room in First World Hotel.

We get to see staff hard at work, cleaning dirty clothes and bedsheets by using very big machines.

Clean clothes, ready to be sent to customers.

Our next stop is : See, Do& Eat Interactive Workshop. Here, participants of the tour were given a chance to make sushi bento or decorate cupcakes or doughnut. Since I don’t like to eat rice, I chose to decorate my own doughnut instead.

Everyone is busy making their doughnut after being shown how to do if by the chef.

I chose strawberries and cream as fillings and toppings.

I made this. Simple one. I call it Strawberry Attack. It tasted much better than those we buy in bakeries. :)

 photo DSCN1402_zpss7oikorw.jpg

Miss Irene and friends. They joined in and made their own doughnuts to eat too. They are the kind people who bring us around for the tour and let us have fun in Genting. I think, their doughnuts looks better than mine.

After eating the food that we made, Miss Irene brought us to Genting International Showroom. Here, we were shown how lights and music is managed during shows and concert.
