24-hours Food Trail at SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting - Part 1

SkyAvenue is a new concept lifestyle mall which has more than 70 various dining outlets. There is a good mix of fast food restaurants, cafes, food kiosks, mid-range and high class restaurants. My family and I were delighted to be invited for a 24-hours food trail at SkyAvenue last Saturday and Sunday. We were happy to dine at 23 F&B outlets / restaurants and tried some new food which were quite unique.

Our first stop was Tian Ma Bird Nest. It is located on 4th floor of SkyAvenue. Bird nest is known for it's health benefits which can make our skin look more youthful. It was our first time trying Bird Nest Porridge and Coconut Bird Nest. Yummy, I loved the taste of both.

We went to dal.komm to get some dessert and drinks. It is also located on 4th floor of SkyAvenue. We decided to eat light before heavier meals. The Hanjuku Cheese Lava Cruffin, Premium Chocolate Shake and Strawberry Cube all tasted sweet and delicious.

We headed to Royale Vietnam for our lunch. Royale Vietnam serves very delicious Vietnamese food with beautiful carving decorations. The food looked really appetizing and tasted so good, I want to come back for more. I liked the Crispy Golden Chicken Pumpkin because the chicken meat was tender and tasty, the fried pumpkin was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.

After our lunch, my son wanted some ice-cream and we decided to go to llao llao located on 2nd floor. Healthy yogurt ice-cream is served with many varieties of toppings including fruits, chocolate cookies and different types of sauces to choose from. This is definitely healthier ice-cream to indulge in for ice-cream lovers.

Morganfield's is a non-halal restaurant on level 1 of Sky Avenue. Morganfield's is well kown for its Sticky Bones which is succulent, juicy, tender spare ribs. This restaurant is very spacious and has lots of cute pig decorations.

We had a delicious meal here and loved the Sticky Bones a lot. I liked the one with Hickory BBQ Sauce the most. I tried their Virgin Apple Mojito drink which has fresh apples, lime chucks, mint leaves and brown sugar topped with soda.

Stay tune to my blog for part 2 and part 3 of my 24-hours food trail at Sky Avenue experience.

The Prime ProGIGuard – A Yeast Probiotic Formulation Scientifically Proven To Relieve Abdominal Pain And Discomfort

The Prime ProGIGuard recently hosted a dynamic and memorable event where scientific and clinically sound results supported the use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 in abdominal symptomatic relief such as pain and generalised discomfort. Members of the public and media were made aware of Irritable Bowel Syndrome , or IBS, a common gastrointestinal disorder often unreported and underdiagnosed, and other associated conditions in IBD, or inflammatory bowel disorders such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, thanks to Professor Pierre Desreumaux, an international gastroenterological expert based in France.

A Gutwrenching Loss
You are happily living your life as an active member of society, and can be aged anywhere from 15 – 65 years old. Sure, life can be stressful every now and then, but then who isn’t stressed in today’s fast paced lifestyle? So imagine waking up with abdominal pain, bloating, distension, flatulence, with constipation and/or diarrhoea. This goes on not just the whole day, but continues to the next day, and the next, with no sign of letting up. It is socially embarrassing and you feel self-conscious, anxious and depressed. The constant bloating leaves you developing a bad body image and alters your entire lifestyle. You don’t go to school or work and miss important academic or work developments that leave you behind and struggling to catch up. You cannot enjoy your food as you used to, fearing that a particular type of food will add to the bloating, distension and flatulence as well as the alteration in stool. Examples include not being able to eat ice cream, milk, spices or French fries. Reports show that activities are restricted up to 139 days of the year, and up to 40 days of absenteeism are recorded. Life goes on a downward spiral as you lose control of your once ordered life, and you are prescribed strong medicine such as antidepressants with potential side effects.

Yet you are not alone. Over 800 million people suffer as you do, from a condition known as IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome. This gastrointestinal syndrome is a collection of symptoms as listed above, and is diagnosed according to the Rome III criteria as recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort (an uncomfortable sensation not described as pain) for at least 3 days in a month in the last 3 months associated with 2 or more of the following: improvement with defecation, onset associated with a change in the frequency of stool, and the onset associated with a change in the appearance of stool according to the Bristol stool chart. 3 different types of IBS exist: IBS-C (IBS with constipation), IBS-D (IBS with diarrhoea), and IBS-M (IBS with mixed constipation and diarrhoea). Other symptoms of IBS include nausea, loss of bowel control, sudden urges to go to the bathroom and soiling.

Teo Tze Seng, Product Manager of Cambert (M) Sdn Bhd for The Prime ProGIGuard

IBS can affect anyone, and up to as high as 21% of adults are affected in certain regions. More women (70%) than men (30%) suffer IBS and all ages are affected, from teenagers to the elderly. However IBS is most commonly found in the age groups 30 – 50 years old. Many people don’t even realise that this is a condition, with only 30% of sufferers consulting their doctors about this condition. There are many different remedies on the market, but only 8% of patients are satisfied with their particular remedy. The syndrome affects patients both physically and psychologically, impairing the patient’s ability to function emotionally, socially and professionally.

IBS happens all over the world, and an average of 15.6% of Malaysians suffer from IBS, with the highest number of sufferers at greater than 20% in its respective country (the USA for example). The global cost incurred for sufferers of IBS is estimated at over USD$21 billion, including both the direct medical costs (physician visits, investigative tests, drugs, etc.) and indirect costs (loss of productivity, work absenteeism).

Professor Pierre Desreumaux, International Gastroenterological Expert

Quotes from Prof Pierre Desreumaux
One way to combat Irritable Bowel Syndrome is to consume probiotics, a product readily available on the market. However, The Prime ProGIGuard is the only yeast probiotic available on the market, so that it can get rid of bad bacteria AND bad yeast, especially harmful candida yeast that can enter the bloodstream.

The Prime ProGIGuard is safe and fast acting, and has strong scientific support and clinically proven efficacy. Anyone from children aged two years and above can consume it, and it is a breakthrough in gastrointestinal pain management.

The Prime ProGIGuard has been clinically proven to relieve gastrointestinal symptoms, and is suitable for anyone suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, food allergies and/or food intolerance, constipation, diarrhoea, trapped wind and bloating, overeating, anxiety, depression, stomach flu or even menstrual pain.

Studies have shown that sufferers of gastrointestinal pain and discomfort experienced a significant reduction in symptoms from the first week onwards of consumption and especially within the first two weeks/15 days of consumption.

Bakers Yeast - a Natural Probiotic Proven to Settle the Stomach
Saccharomyces cerevisiae in The Prime ProGIGuard works in IBS by several ways. One of the ways is that Saccharomyces cervisiae CNCM I-3856 secretes saccharolytic enzymes and assisting intestinal flora in generating short chain fatty acids that accelerates the bowel movements. It also acts as a visceral analgesic, increasing resistance to pain by up to 40%. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory to combat intestinal inflammation. It helps rebalance the bacteria in the gut, being shown to reduce the harmful bacteria Enterococcus, E. coli and C. albicans. The result is decreased inflammation, bloating, pain, discomfort, constipation among relief of the other symptoms of IBS. It is indeed a wonder probiotic (good yeast)!

The Prime ProGiGuard retails for RM 66.80 for a bottle of 30 capsules and RM111.80 for a bottle of 60 capsules and is available at Guardian, Caring, AA and other leading pharmacies nationwide. The Prime ProGiguard is solely distributed by Cambert (M) Sdn Bhd in Malaysia.
