MYAirline Announces Temporarily Suspension of Operations starting 12 Oct Until Further Notice

MYAirline, which began in 2021 and took off for the first time in December 2022 with leased Airbus A320 planes, has been making headlines for a range of issues. These include the sudden departure of their CEO, Rayner Teo, and difficulties in paying their service providers and employees on time.

Since 21 August, MYAirline reduced the number of available seats on domestic flights by 25%. They've also had trouble operating at busy airports, like Singapore Changi Airport, due to limited landing slots, even though they were given a two-year extension by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia.

Up to yesterday, news broke that MYAirline is close to securing a new investor, potentially Abang Abdillah Izzarim Abang Abdul Rahman Zohari, the son of Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg. This could provide much-needed financial relief for the struggling airline.

The recent suspension of services has surprised many. I haven't had the chance to fly with MYAirline yet, and I hope they can get back to regular operations soon.

The below MyAirline suspension notice was published in MYAirline's official Facebook page this morning.

Discovering Wonders of Blueberries at the Blueberry Wonder Workshop

I have always love blueberry and I am a big fan of Oregon Washington Blueberries! I am thankful to be invited by Oregon Washington Blueberries to dove into a world of health and flavour at the Blueberry Wonder Workshop which took place at Wellness City in Bukit Jalil.

This event was a real treat for the senses, offering a wonderful mix of interesting talks, cooking demonstrations, hands-on activities, and delicious treats all centered around the healthy Oregon Washington Blueberries.

The workshop kicked off with an engaging speech by Mr. Eddie Saw, who represents US Blueberries in Malaysia. He talked about the fascinating history of blueberries and their transformation into a superfood. A representative from KL Wellness City, the venue sponsor, also shared some insights about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, which fit well with the wellness-focused event.

Wellness advocate and social media personality Iman Azman spoke passionately about the importance of blueberries in our everyday lives. These tiny but powerful berries have become a regular part of modern diets because of their outstanding nutritional benefits and their ability to be added to a wide variety of dishes and beverages.

Iman added, “My little ones especially, love blueberries in their cupcakes and as a parent I feel more assured adding fresh quality and nutritious ingredients into their favorite snacks and drinks.”

The event's culinary experience was made even better by Chef Zie Zie, who showed how to make a delicious Seared Chicken Quinoa Bowl with Fresh Blueberries. 

Everyone got to see how blueberries can add a unique flavor twist to both savory and sweet dishes.

Thanks Chef Zie Zie, it was a really fun workshop!

Guests were asked to join a fun cooking session where they got to make their own tasty Blueberry Cream Cheese Mini Tarts and enjoy a refreshing Blueberry Colada drink. 

After the cooking fun, everyone savored a delightful lunch before gathering for a group photo to capture the memories.

As the workshop came to an end, each of us received certificates to recognize their active participation. 

Blueberries are considered a superfood because they're packed with antioxidants and offer various health advantages, such as boosting the immune system and promoting heart health. They're free of cholesterol and sodium, high in potassium and Vitamin C, making them a popular choice for health-conscious individuals looking for clean, nutritious food.

Oregon and Washington blueberries are meticulously selected to guarantee that only the finest quality blueberries are included in every serving of your diet. You can find them in leading supermarkets and grocery stores.

Happy to meet my fellow bloggers & influencers friends!
