BrooklynB // // U.S Fries & Burgers Fiesta

Im back again! And today in conjunction with the U.S Fries and Burgers Fiesta, i managed to visit another cafe participant in regards of the campaign. Can you guess which cafe was my next destination? Hehe. Read on below to find out:

And tadaa, after so long of eyeing BrooklynB, finally got the chance to check them out. I was rather fascinated that their dishes are creatively made with bagels! And if you think their burgers are going to be like how you think it would be, well, im telling you to expect the unexpected. Located within the same row where McDonalds is in SS15, its like its own gem in a row of shop lots. Can you guess what their featured burgers are in conjunction with the U.S Fries with Burgers Fiesta?  Scroll down to find out!

Philly Cheese Steak

First up in the menu would be their Philly Cheese Steak, which features thinly sliced beef served with caramelised onions, cheese and U.S Straight Cut Fries in a dish. As the first dish served, i was rather shocked to find the bun's of this so called burger are made out of bagels! Imagine a fusion of one of the few best things in life, bagels with a concept of burgers. Yep, and in this particular dish, instead of beef patties, it's substituted with Philly cheese steak to get yourself to drool. And i have to say that the fries on the sides are amazing as an appetizer to the dish. Steak lovers, this is a must try!

Deli Chicken

Another dish by BrooklynB that has been featured to be in this campaign would be the Deli Chicken. This dish is practically all about the smoked chicken and cheese served on a bed of lettuce with U.S Straight Cut Fries on the side. Forget about chicken ham sandwich, cause this is one of its kind. The Smoked chicken slice really compliments the taste of the savoury bagel, and the straight cut fries add a crispy texture to the entire dish.

So there you have it ladies and gents, for those who loves to get a taste of savoury bagels differently, you should definitely head on over to BrooklynB in SS15, Subang Jaya to get a taste of this! For more information on BrooklyB, head on over to their Facebook page at

The New Anlene Movemax

The launch of the New Anlene Movemax Formula
Anlene has been well known for strengthening bones by providing calcium under Dairy giant Fonterra Brands Malaysia, and today, they have launched a nation-wide campaign to get Malaysians to move as young as they fell inside. The launch is in conjunction with the introduction of the new Anlene with MoveMax formula which includes Calcium, Collagen, and Protein for the well-being of bones, joints and muscles.

Jose Miguel sharing a few words on behalf of Fonterra Brands Malaysia and Singapore.
Mr Jose Miguel Porraz Landor, Managing Director of Fonterra Brands Malaysia and Singapore was present and quoted that Fonterra has always made it a priority to listen closely to consumers in order to meet their specific nutritional needs through the goodness of dairy.

A really energetic sketch was prepared to embrace the movement.
Do keep in mind that Anlene is a brand that was first created more than 20 years ago in Malaysia for the Asian market, with the intention to address the nutritional needs for bone health. Today, Anlene has highly succeeded to be a global brand, and continues to innovate and address the nutritional needs for not just bones, but in movements as well.

Sheila Majid also made a special appearance at the event as Anlene's spoke person.
The official launch of Anlene MoveMax
To wow media members, Sheila Majid made a special appearance who was the spokesperson at the launch, to inspire Malaysian to make movement an important part of their lives. Sheila who is now in her 50's clearly walks the talk, as she maintains a highly active lifestyle through good nutrition which she explains is the key to her youthful appearance and good health. And personally speaking, seeing someone who's in their 50's looking that great, really can be a true idol, proving to people that you have a choice to be who you want to be. *idol*

Members of the media had a fun time finding out our Anlene Move Check too!
Move Young Machine 
Trampoline exercises
And my favourite one of all, the swing!
At the experiential launch, we had a taste of fun youthful movements which featured jumping on a trampoline, arcade dance games and a tyre swing in a tree house. And since i managed to move with Anlene, believe me, the games were not as easy as it looks. haha. Anlene has created really good touchpoints with consumers like me to fully embrace movements as young as they feel through roadshows, programmes and move checks. Who really knew that movements are as important too right?

Free flow of Anlene Yogurt
My mum enjoying some yogurt for herself, with of course gaining healthy benefits.
Since the event had a free flow of Anlene milk and yogurt, i'll be honest that i've never tried their milk formulation other than their yogurt range, and since i decided to try the Anlene MoveMax chocolate milk formula, i dont think it was that bad. It was rather refreshing after a long workout of youthful movements. (note to self that im getting older day by day) haha. Its really great to know that they want to empower more Malaysians to move as young as they feel inside.

Launching the Anlene MoveMax
The new Anlene formulation with MoveMax contains important nutrients such as calcium, collagen, protein, as well as other nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B, C, D and E in a nutrient bundle to help care for your bones, joints and muscles. The new Anelen MoveMax is available in all leading supermarkets nationwide and is available in the powdered form as well as in the yogurt form. The powdered form comes in two flavours - plain and chocolate in packs of 1kg, 600g and 175g. The Anlene Movemax Yogurt are available in 4 delicious variants featuring plain, mango, strawberry and mixed berries. (my fav is the mixed berries!) hehe. For more information, please log on to or

Big Hug Burger // U.S Fries & Burgers Fiesta

We all love our burgers with any form of potatoes as the sides, so in conjunction with the U.S Fries & Burger Fiesta which is on-going until the end of May 2016, there will be 19 different burger joint and cafes in the Klang Valley participating in this fiesta. And just to share some sneak peaks on what to expect, I managed to visit one of the participating cafe's to check out what they have to offer!

At a small corner in Subang Square, lies the Big Hug Burger cafe, which is located in SS15. And if youre wondering what their featured burgers are in conjunction with the U.S Fries Burgers Fiesta, its would be their Nasi Lemak Burger and Grilled Buffalo Chicken Burger. With such an interesting combo of ingredients, it definitely caught my attention! Read on to find out more about these 2 burgers.

 Grilled Buffalo Chicken Burger

 The first burger featured would be the Grilled Buffalo Chicken Burgers as their signature burger feature for the U.S Fries and Burgers Fiesta. The highlight of this burger would be its Grilled Buffalo Chicken patty, topped with celery, carrot, lettuce , mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese and blue cheese dressing accompanied with it, the U.S Spice Potato slice. If you love juicy burgers, this would be it! At your first bite, you would know that this burger is filled with flavours that compliment each other very well. The potatoes also went really well with the flavour of the burger, to add a slight tinge of spice. *Yums*

Nasi Lemak Burger

And the other featured burger would be the Nasi Lemak Burger! I have to admit that the name of it was rather interesting since it has like an asian fusion to a western dish. It has Ayam Berempah topped with a fried egg, crispy anchovies, peanuts and served with a toasted pandan bun, layered wth cucumber slices, cheddar cheese, curry sauce, sambal and santan mayo with U.S Spice Potato Slices. I was surprise that the sambal on the burger was actually tasty! Not too spicy for spice lovers, but to my tastebuds, i'd give this a thumbs up, must try dish!

Both these burgers would not be complete without the sides of potato slices! I have to admit that the way they fried their potatoes are on point. But between the crinkle cut fries and the potato wedges, i prefer the thin cuts better. Hehe. Both had a crispy exterior that would just melt in your mouth. With only the best US Potato's, it would guarantee taste and quality.

So if you're hesitating, dont! Head on over to Big Hug Burger Cafe and taste these amazing burgers for yourself. And don't forget this with your friends, after all, good things are meant to be shared right? For more information, do head on over to their facebook page at ;)
