The sticker was obtain since the first outlet in Autocity. So the sticker still mention Chicago Ribs House Autocity Penang. As you can see how big fan we were to Chicago Ribs House. 

After they close down for 2 years, they reopen in Gurney Plaza. Seem like they are doing extremely well there. Seem like location did really matter. They had a new menu, so how is the new menu doing? Let me show you what they had in the new menu :)

Left to right, Tropical orange freeze, RM8.90. It contain pineapple and orange blended into a freezing cold ice, surprisingly taste awesome. Strawberry lemonade, RM7.90. A combination of sprite and strawberry, nah i am not a fan of gassy drink so i pass on this.
New Starter for CRH were Hot Buffalo Wings, which are deep fried wing coated with three choice of Honey BBQ, Spicy Sauce or Sweet Thai Chili and served with celery sticks and sour cream.

CSL Event at Megamall & Social Hour (Review Program) @ Megamall Penang


CSL had marked another history in mainland Penang to set up the 2nd CSL 3S Care center and Northen Hub at Megamall Penang. 

What is CSL? Let me share some light about it. 
The CSL Group of Companies (CSL) was founded by Dato Dr. Eric Chuah in 1999. Over the past decade it has earned substantial recognition from the Malaysian Government including that of Technology Status Company/Manufacturer by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and by the Ministry of Finance for its pioneering role in the mobile telephone industry and contribution towards economic development consonant with the 9th Malaysia Plan.
In April 2010, CSL entered into a joint venture with Singapore’s main-board listed, Spice i2i Limited (S i2i), to form Spice CSL International Sdn Bhd. Led by Dr B K Modi, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Spice Global and its group of companies, the vision of S i2i is to bring mobility to 50% of the world’s population, covered by 90 countries spanning the i2i region from Ivory Coast to Indonesia. On 1 October 2010, Dato’ Dr. Eric Chuah was appointed the Managing Director of S i2i and has been tasked to achieve this vision through a slew of mergers and acquisitions.
Primarily engaged in the marketing and distribution of mobile phones and consumer electronics, Spice CSL aims to service and grow the mobile telephony market across Southeast Asia. It already has established offices in Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
Besides new product development and constant enhancement in supply chain management, Spice CSL also leverages its cache of expertise, skilled personnel, R&D facilities and technological resources to provide comprehensive communication management solutions and world class aftersales service to meet the increasing demands of our customers.
From Malaysia to Southeast Asia to i2i region, from phone trading to an integrated supply chain, from low-end phones to mobile Internet phones, Spice CSL today has achieved leaps and bounds from where it started.

What is 3S? 3S stand for after sales services, technical support and mobility solutions- service, support and solutions will be always prepared for CSL customers at northern area now!

See how exciting the event was?

Another boring weekend? No idea what to do? Come let go green and run away from your busy life. Let go cycle and explore Balik Pulau.

I had been invited to join them to experience this wonderful trip. As usual, we start with a food hunt in Balik Pulau before go sweating :) We went to the new food complex at Balik Pulau for some delicious Laksa, fresh nutmeg juice and pasembur. Sadly the quality of the food drop and lousy. So here i am not going to recommend any food there but just to show what i had :)

Fun before the heart pumping, muscle stretching and sweating exercise.


On the way you can notice this banner, there is the place where you need to park your heavy metal :)

See all the light metal house to select from.

Yeah this is my ride for the evening.

Below shown some interesting article that sticks on the wall. 




Thank you Eddie Chew for preparing us such a wonderful tea break.

Scary portion for 15 pax.


This is how you should wear for countryside exploring? Hmm no idea, anyway she did that :)

Let the exploration begin.


I found a toilet in the middle of the green.

Nice scene along the way.

Small town beside the river.

Cycle beside paddy field.




Our tour guide enjoying the evening sun.




Sunset shots at the paddy field.

Finally finish of the whole cycling trip but everyone look exhausted and enjoyed.
Again i would like to thank Eddie Chew for this wonderful opportunity. Although the whole trip was so tiring but i get a lot of work out. I even feel lost of weight after the green trip.
