Free breakfast @ McDonald’s Malaysia

McDonalds Malaysia free breakfastMcDonald’s Malaysia will be giving away free Egg McMuffin to the first 1000 visitors of each and every 215 restaurant nationwide on November 19 to celebrate its Breakfast Day.

Not sure what’s the purpose besides marketing gimmick. At least they have the courtesy to offer it absolutely free (one per customer) with no string attached.

This sort of promotion is usually a double-edge sword. Some folks will happily grab the freebies while bunch of others disgruntled (empty handed, long queue etc.)

Check McDonald’s (MY) website for details. Should be interesting to see what happens tomorrow… knowing Malaysians it will be pretty rowdy at some outlets.

Me and my family had a reunion dinner on Christmas night, Chinese style, at Fresh Unique Seafood 23 restaurant in Petaling Jaya…

Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant, Langkawi, Malaysia

Dinner at Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant during my Langkawi trip in August 2009. A visit to Langkawi Island wouldn’t be complete without a seafood meal, and we decided to splurge a bit with…

Lobster muahaha!!!

Lobster stir-fried with chilli paste; probably not a wise option, as the strong seasoning was too dominant that it’s hard to taste the original lobster flavour. Nice texture though; freshness at its best…
