Halloween with Jagermeister Malaysia.

"This is the night - The night.

Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
You think that without,
THe wild winds shout,
But no! It is they - It is them! "

 Arthur Cleveland Coxe, Halloween: A Romaunt

We heard the witch and ghost make merry on the last of dear October's days.
A mansion located in the middle of the city was haunted some time last month. Eye of dead, toe of frog, tongue of dog, but they said there's no body in there,

but are you sure, really?


Witches riding, shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen.
Voices whisper in the trees.... It's Halloween!





It's a night that everyone's entitled to one good scare.


: Don't you know what happens on Halloween?
- Candies! OR NOT.





He said : 
"Please, please, help me grow to be like them, the ones'll soon be here, who never grow old, can't die". 
That's what they say, can't die, no matter what, or maybe they died a long time ago...


He said :
I used to rule the world.. I still am.





: But I saw the zombie.. I saw I saw.
- What did he look like?
: Zombie....




You've fooled them! But no..not me.


A man won't do this.
Not unless they are alive..


"Oh How the candles will be lit and the wood of worm burn in a fiery dust. For on all Hallow's Eve will the spirits come to play, and only the fruit of thy womb will satisfy their endless roaming." - Solange Nicole

A Halloween party brought to you by Jagermeister & Carlsberg Malaysia in Seri Carcosa KL and indeed everyone pulled out their best outfit and I was truly impressed! Never had so much fun in a long time with the countless shots of Jagermeister with the craziest walking-dead.

We have prison that escape from nowhere, psycho that walked around with treat of poison shots, policeman/women that got you arrested for no reason, vampires who were happy with their dose of blood, it was a night that brought the worst nightmare to everyone.

I've heard there are more parties coming, I smells fun.

Trick or treat?

Ozeki Tokyo Cuisine, Jln P.Ramlee

I'm always a big fan to Japanese food, not every one of them but those who serve fresh food and I can be especially picky when it says 'authentic'. This one? They said it loud "The Best Japanese in Town!", sounds a little cheeky don't they? But I've heard many good comments from friends and colleagues (she's handling the account) so I thought we should give it a try since it's only 10 minutes away from home.

It's sort of located in Menara TA in Jalan P.Ramlee, it is kinda hidden that you might missed it without paying attention. So yea, it took the blur-fish some time to get into the parking (open car park on the right).


Walked into a wide dining area with open-concept kitchen, we were greeted from the staff and got our seat behind a private partition.



Glanced through the menu and I saw Bashashi (raw horse meat)! Not many Japanese restaurant in KL serve this and I thought it was a little too wild for my taste so we skipped it.
So first on the table we had my all time favourite - Edamame bean (RM 9).


1 Chawanmushi (RM 8) for each of us, it took them a while to prepare this but man it was hell lotsa tickle to my tastebud! The flavour from each ingredient in it was so strong and fresh! I usually leave the ginkgo seeds cuz most of the time what I got was weird in taste but I actually gulp the entire bowl down. Probably the best I've ever had.


California Maki (RM 19), no one can ever do this wrong, am I right? :)


Spicy Fire Tuna Maki (RM 28), fear not the fire. It is not at all like it's name. There were some Korean spicy pickles and spices which taste more sweet than spicy to us. But still, the taste actually blends well with each other so we're more than happy to have it.


Sushi & Sashio Moriawase - Kiku standard grade (RM 95), includes tako, tuna, salmon, white tuna, hotate, tamago, and more! We definitely enjoy them with the ultra kick from the fresh grind wasabi. Though I heard from my colleague, they have air-flown delivery twice a week (on Monday and Thursday if I'm not mistaken), so better option for you to visit on one of these two days.



Soft Shell Crab Spicy Age (RM 28) - crunchy bites with teriyaki sauce then again, it wasn't spicy that I'm guessing the definition of spicy is different between me and the Japanese. Or it wasn't suppose to be spicy that it's just a name? Correct me please?


We ordered a special of the month from the tent cards placed on table, Wagyu something (RM 68) I can't remember but I think it was American wagyu that it was too dry and wasn't up to expectation.


Top the night with a bottle of Sake to your best satisfaction I would say. That "the best" comment is of course up to personal opinion, overall it was really a great dinner and we will definitely go back for more!

Yummy hugs,

Back from Thailand.


As you can see from my facebook/twitter updates,
I'm back from the awesome-pawsome 9days trip to Phuket, Krabi and Phi Phi islands!

Beautiful islands, image-like scenery, Thai massage, snokerling, and even scuba diving to swim with sharks and fishes, it was heck a lot of unforgettable experiences! It was absolutely took away all the pressure and stress from work and man, I feel the poweeeeer!

Indulged ourselves in way too many authentic Thai cuisine, daily flow of Singha and Chang beer under the sunshine, oh life oh life..

Now, it's gonna take some time to recover from the tan (like Indian)... :x

Stay tuned for more beautiful updates soon!

I've set up a fanpage for withlouise updates, check it out and appreciate if you would gimme a 'like'

Thank you!

Esquire Malaysia’s Best Dressed Real Men @ Circus KL

Men: "Dress up seems simple. Dress up is easy."

Wrong! That's the most common mistake in most of the people especially some young men who lives without a clue how to dress! Well that could be pain in the eyes, sometimes. :P
Dressing does not make a man but I always believe the right outfit enhance your personal image with a perfect touch, and you make the girl falls. 

The second year of Esquire Malaysia's Best Dressed Real Men, a Malaysia take on the Esquire UK's "Britain's Best Dressed Real Men" competition that started three months ago finally announce the winner in a super dramatic style in KL's hottest venue, Circus.


Over 200 contestant for judge over the months and yes it was a night to savour with eye candy.

Just so you know, prizes for winners include bespoke tailored suits by Wardrobe, vouchers for luxury brand like Lustro, Leica cameras, Storm London watches and Penhaligon perfumes and a party by Kronenburg 1664 in The Pool that sum up to RM20,000.00 . (WTF! Where's the Best Dressed Women competition?)

It was a rainy night but it doesn't stop the guests flowing into Circus for the great party. Over 200 pax of invited guest in the house including media, celebrities, and all the beautiful people in town who came in their best dresses, amazingly phewit! :-B


The paper bow tie on each table in  that smells heavenly from Penhaligon's perfume and the restaurant magically smells awesomeee throughout the entire night. 
Oh my how much I love the scent!


Editor in Chief of Esquire Malaysia & Singapore and Amber Chia.

The Best Dressed Real Man Malaysia is based on a key fashionpillar in the UK, Britain's Best Dressed Real Man, and has run to much fanfare in London. As such, it asks normal, non-celebrity men to send in their photos, demonstrate their fashion sense, be that with luxury brands or just interesting combinations that spell STYLE.

So 200 contestants, nights of judging, fighting and throwing of plates and glasses, we've got the winners of the Best Dressed Real Man 2012; Roslan Said!


Roslan SaidDesign Associate43was crowned as Malaysia’s Best Dressed Real Man 2012 and receives bespoke tailoring from Wardrobe, a Leica compact camera, a Storm London watch of his choice, Penhaligon’s Perfume, Lustro vouchers and best of all, a framed picture of his Esquire shoot. “Roslan carries himself well. I liked that he was older and willing to join a competition where he knew that most of the competition would be young dudes. He still brought it to the table, out-dressed the others and also knew what he was talking about,” said Rudy La Faber, 2011 Best Dressed Real Man.

From right: 
Winner - Roslan Said
First runner up - Saiful Hifzudeen
Second runner up - Albert Liaw 
Honorary mentions - Edmund Kuah. 

Merry goes round the entire place and all I can see was happy faces! Cheers to that.



And here's my happy partner and I wonder what was up that we were both laughing like idiots.
Maybe some hawt guys said HI etc. :P


Excuse me that Nazeen was busy checking the guys instead of smiling to the photographer. *ehem*


Fruitful night. lol :x
