At the Media Preview which i would like to thank 1 Utama and The Butterfly Project for having me there, we had Sheson Lian to show us some cooking demonstration which was around an hour of yummy scents of delicious Ayam Percik, with a slight twist of using yogurt instead of coconut milk. It was an interesting experience watching a live cooking show for the first time. Definitely very tempting, the fact that you can smell the food that he was cooking which made everyone drool for more. Do join and learn expert tips and techniques to prepare local meals with these famous personalities when you get the chance to.

The 'Makan Village' 
Not only that, at the 'makan village', if you're a food lover, then this is the place you should be with tons of variety to bring back home to your hometown. Not to mention that i absolutely love the vibe there too! I took some shots of what you can find at the 'makan village' and of course, i love the hospitality of the sellers there too. It was all smiles when i was there.

And More cookies!
Rendang taste nice with a smile
The famous Sangkaya is available at 1 Utama too!

And front the photos above, i guess you could pretty much tell that 1 Utama has done a good job with the variety of vendors which were there. I personally had my eye on Airi Delight's Store where there were a lot of option of raya cookies as she had tons of variety to choose from. I took some photos below, and as suggested by the seller, she said the must try would be their 'Kenari biscuits' or the ' Biskut Payung' which were said are their best sellers. She was kind enough to offer some testers too but i didn't had time to try it as i was rushing sadly. So do feel free to drop by and ask her for some yummy testers, and it might just get you hooked!

Airi Delight, who were very friendly!

More options to choose from.
While browsing around through the Raya decorations, i would say that 1 Utama has definitely went all out this year to surprise shoppers with stunning props, like retro bicycles, Vespa scooters and vintage looking knick-knacks at every corner. And in the photos below, you can actually see that i kid you not, that they even had real grass pathways to get you ready to feel like shoppers get an authentic feel of this festive celebration.

The props to add an authentic feel to the environment.
Do i look like I'm at a 'kampung' or what? 
And as i mentioned earlier, REAL Green Grass.
