The Sky, One City Mall - the biggest rooftop dining experience in Malaysia

I started seeing this kinda of pictures in July last year where a lot of my friends was posting their feet on transparent glass floor... looks kinda cool & scary at the same time! Later I found out this place is The Sky at One City Mall, in USJ

Oh well I finally managed to check it out recently and took a picture of my own (#followtrendlah) :P

NOTE : Please do not wear skirts or dress when you want to come to this The Sky at One City to take picture cos it's transparent glass and you are "free viewing"to the shopper below..

The Sky at One City is established on the 10th floor (rooftop) of the 16-level mall, inevitably an urban dining oasis in the Subang vicinity. This is the biggest rooftop food and beverage area in Malaysia, offering international cuisine that includes Thai, Korean and western delights, not forgetting a sports bar with darts game, pool table facilities and a chill-out lounge with live band, a new remarkable place for dining, chill-out, events, music and gathering.

What I really like about this place is each restaurant has their own outdoor sky dining area and that totally fits the name of the place! 

The Sky at One City had their official opening last week. 

At a star studded gala night, more than 1000 guests were treated to a spectacular showcase by a great line-up of artists that included Henley Hii, Baki Zainal, Dina Nadzir, Shawn Lee and international illusionist, Zlwin Chew.

Besides the night’s performances, guests were also entertained by various games and activities at the grand opening. All invited guests for the happening night were able to win prizes totaling RM16, 000 from the lucky draw, as well as use Facebook posts to ‘buy’ themselves some exclusive merchandise from The Sky’s “Facebook Shop”, in an innovative new social media concept. In high spirits, guests continued to party at The Sky till the wee hours of the morning.

The highlight of the night was food tasting from The Sky’s six restaurants. And here I will introduced each restaurants in The Sky at One City and their signature dishes.

Master Room serves unique fusion dishes. It's a family-oriented restaurant and sports bar wants to cater to all walks of life.
Petite Nasi Lemak (RM9) is a mini version of the local favourite, creatively served in baskets of pai tee. Each serving of the bite-sized morsels comes complete with anchovies, peanuts, sambal, egg and cucumber, while the pai tee’s crunchy texture is similar to keropok.

Reminds me of the proverb kecil kecil cili padi which means although it's small but really spicy!

So cute that I decided to take selfie it!

Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream 

It was so delicious that I finished every single bite. *enough said*

KL Restaurant Week: Opus Bistro @ Bangkung, Bangsar

Earlier this week I went to food tasting in Opus Bistro which is located in Bangsar, I was told this is one of the best Italian restaurant in town where spaghetti alla Opus, homemade ravioli and roasted cod are some of their best dishes. They are pork-free.

Was quite suprised to see it was quite crowded even on weekdays.

The place has simple decoration but yet cosy.

The reason we are here for food tasting is because Opus Bistro is one of the participating restaurants in Kuala Lumpur Restaurant Week.

The concept of Restaurant Week was first launch back in 1992, when the late restaurateur Joe Baum and Tim Zagat first dreamt up Restaurant Week in New York City, they had no idea that it would become a national and international success. The original four-day event was created as a goodwill gesture to the 15,000 reporters coming to cover that year's Democratic National Convention. Both creators had thought it would be a short-term money loser but with long-term PR benefit for New York and its restaurant industry. Today, almost 20 years later, restaurant weeks have become a tradition in city after city for their appeal to customers and restaurants. In short: they are a win-win.

In a nutshell, participating restaurants in Restaurant Week create a fixed menu at a special price to attract customers to come try the restaurant. Customers love the concept of Restaurant Week because they offer a chance to experience many of their city's best restaurants for a modest price. In exchange, the restaurants gain by attracting thousands of new diners who might hesitate to try such restaurants without the assurance of an affordable bill.

KL Restaurant Week will begin on 4th October 2013, armed with a bonanza of 45 participating restaurants from casual to fine-dining categories, that offer a plethora of exquisite cuisines set amidst dynamic dining scenes for patrons to experience at a modest price.Menu prices start from RM20 nett for lunch and RM50 nett for dinner. Participating restaurants will set aside limited seats offering the KL Restaurant Week menus. And reservation must be made online with a reservation fee of RM 2.00 per seat will be charged, strictly non-refundable.

Let's look what Opus Bistro has to offer for their 3 course meal  lunch set at RM38 nett person. Lunch hour are from 12pm to 3pm and Sunday is off for lunch.

As for starter, one can choose whether to have caesar salad or asparagus soup. And I highly recommended in having the later as the soup is really delicious. It's creamy but not overwhelming.

As for main course, you can see there are 3 types of dishes to pick. My favourite would be Linguine Zucchini Prawn; those prawns are really big and fresh... oh yummy!

As for dinner set which is also a 3 course meal is offered at RM78 nett per person. Their dinner time starts from 6pm to 12am.

 As for dinner set, one can choose between Mushroom Soup and Salmon Roll with Rocket Salad (which setting looked like carrot like... so cute!)

As for the main course for dinner, I would prefer Grilled Seabass with salsa verde over the others as it was well seasoned and taste really nice.

Strawberry Pannacotta is arguably one of my favourite Italian dessert, yummy and sinful at the same time. The portion of the this dessert is suprisingly really big as it comes in a big glass but I like it... so its good la....ohlalala!

Oh notice the dessert that they are serving for lunch and dinner set is the same.

The man who made us all the delicious food that night! Chef Ariff bin Mohd Nor has more than 15 years of experience with cooking Italian food, and as one of the pioneers at Opus has been heading their kitchen for the past 10 years. 

Opus Bistro Bangsar is located at Jalan Bangkung, Bukit Bandaraya, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Contact number : 03-2092 4288. Click here to check the menu pricing.

It’s not everyday that you can eat these awesome set lunches and dinners within the range of RM20 - RM98! So click here and read those reviews!

Launch of Bintang Walk's Stairway to Debenhams KL, Debenhams Cafe and Debenhams 2012 Autumn/Winter Collection fashion showcase

Last year, Debenhams moved from Lot 10 to Starhill and personally I prefer their location in Starhill for few reasons. It is much more happening area and a bigger floor than their previous location! Yes I always love UK fashion but there is one thing that always stop me from going which is the accessibility and I will tell you why.

Debenhams KL is now currently located at the Starhill Gallery's Explore floor (2nd floor) and previously the only way to go to the store is that we got to walk through the mall (floor by floor) either by going up through escalator/lift to get to Debenhams. And for someone who has 1 hour lunch break and decided to go to skip lunch and go shopping in Debenhams will actually end up having 30mins to shop after walking 5-10 mins (considering that we are wearing heels and address arrive) through escalator to go to the store. Evem taking lift also need to wait right?.

 -Eric Eoon, Executive Director for YTL Land and Andy Jackson, Managing Director  for Debenhams Malaysia cutting the ribbon to officiate the opening of Stairway to Debenhams

So with that in mind YTL decided to enchance Bintang Walk by launching the new escalator which now allows convenient access to visitors straight to Debenhams directly from the street.

-Joseph Yeoh Vice president for YTL Land and Development; YTL Hotels and Properties Eric Eoon Executive and Andy Jackson Managing Director for Debenhams Malaysia

The new air-conditioned escalator is named "Stairway to Debenhams" is encapsulated  by a sleek frame which complements the contemporary design of Starhill Gallery. And it is located exactly on the right side of the building (just behind Sephora), which will takes you straight up to the store.

Entrance to the shopping heaven

Besides launching the Stairway to Debenhams,  Starhill Gallery also launched the Debenhams Cafe where we can relax with a cup of traditional British tea in the open air ambience of Bintang Walk at the foot of the escalator or another Debenhams Caffe on Starhill Gallery’s Explore floor right outside Debenhams. 

And this is perfect for tired shoppers to take a break before continuing shopping! And I think my boyfriend would be more than happy to sit and enjoy his cup of hot coffee while waiting for me to do my shopping!

The menu

At the launched we are served with traditional British delicacies daily, including a range of healthy salads, scrumptious Prawn Cocktail Sandwiches, traditional Ham and Cheese Toasties and delicious Steak and Chicken Pies which are served with a helping of Mash Potato. And all this is in their menu!

Besides that, Debenhams also launched their Autumn/Winter collection 2012, which comes from my favourite top British designer Julien Mcdonald alongside with Jasper Conran and Henry Holland.

 Debenhams A/W 2012 fashion showcase the latest collections for men and women with models with the first winter collection Army Theme with a military insipired look 

We have a showcase of checks and plaids Town & Country theme which is based on the strong British heritage of neat ‘hacking’ jackets, pencil skirts, trousers, shift dresses and coats that have been designed with colours of winter greens, dark chocolate and burnt orange.

Traditional winter dark colours along with stylish metal buttons and neat shoulder epaulettes has combined to create some of the most stunning designs of the season. Elaborate rich fabrics are a must have for the season with the Rich & Opulent theme which works well on shirts and dresses.

Leopard prints never go out of season!

Beautiful yellow print which is easy to match whether it is blouse, dress or tops!

For the men, this Autumn/Winter season they can go choose from nautical themed Cruel Sea which carries a range of stylish garments such as hooded smock jackets.
The English countryside can integrate with Malaysia as men can don clothes from the Heritage theme which includes brushed cotton shirts and cord trousers in earthy browns, tan and forest green colours.

Here comes my favourite designer, Julien Macdonalds which made sheer panels, lace details, exposed zips and peephole details on his Autumn/Winter collection is Star’ and ‘Diamond’ collections, all to give a sexy feel.

And this is my favourite dress!

Oh that's me before I cut my hair away!

Whisper : Debenhams KL still having their Ultimate Year End Sale till this 27 January 2013, and sale up to 70%.. I have grabbed a few good steals! So don't forget to check it out!
