Street Churros Malaysia

Churros is a kind of fried dough pastry usually dipped in chocolate sauce and it is originated from Spain. Street Churros started in Korea where they were crazy about street food. Street Churros wants to elevate street food with premium, fresh ingredients and be the Global No. 1 take-out cafe. If you ever have the cravings for Churros or for those who have not tried them before, you do not need to travel far because Street Churros Malaysia has 4 branches in Malaysia - IOI City Mall, 1 Utama, Berjaya Times Square and Sky Avenue Mall, Genting Highlands. Street Churros plan to open more branches very soon.



Thanks to Street Churros for the food review invitation at Berjaya Times Square last Saturday. My kids and I really enjoyed our Churros very much. It is very crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and there were many dipping sauce and flavors to choose from. My children love the Cheese Churros the most and I like the Cinnamon Churros which is also their best seller.



The different types of Churros.

Street Churros is made using the machine for accurate length. 

Deep fried till crispy


Coated with either cinnamon, chocolate or cheese powder.


Cinnamon, Chocolate and Cheese Churros with these dipping sauce - Chocolate, Cream Cheese, Blueberry and Butterscotch.

I really liked the Cinnamon Churros with the Cream Cheese dipping sauce because the Cinnamon Churros is sweet and goes well with the Cream Cheese which is slightly saltier. The Blueberry and Butterscotch are both very sweet.



This is the Filling Churros. From left to right, the fillings are Cream Cheese, Chocolate and Custard. This type is bigger and the fillings just ooze out into your mouth when you bite it. I personally like this Filling Churros the most. I tried the Chocolate fillings and really loved the strong chocolate taste. I want to try the Custard fillings the next time I have my Churros.


Ice Cream Churros also known as Ah-Chu are my children's favorite. You can have yours plain or with any of the 3 flavors, Choco-Choco, Choco Berry or Mango. For me, I liked the mango flavor the most.


Choco-Choco

Choco Berry

Mango

Besides Churros, there are many types of drinks you can enjoy. I loved the O' My Coconut shake as it tasted sweet and unique with the coconut flavor. I would recommend this because I really fell in love with it just after one sip. 




These are the Fruit Ade. From left to right, Lemon, Passionfruit and Korean Citron. 

If you like passion fruit, don't miss trying out the Passionfruit Ade because it was really refreshing and cool. My son loves the Lemon Ade because it was sweet and not too sour. I have yet to try the Korean Citron and would love to try it when I visit Street Churros again.




Come and have your churros and drinks at Street Churros. You will love it. For more information on Street Churros Malaysia, please visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/StreetChurrosMY/

Apology to Feves de Choco

I would like to apologize to the Chefs at Feves de Choco, Setapak because my son accidently broke their Candy Sculpture when I was there for the Philips Airfryer Cooking Workshop last Saturday. The Candy Sculture was a souvenir given to them by someone who has passed away. 

The Feves de Choco address is :
Lot 5-3A, PV128, Jalan Genting Klang, Setapak
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Telephone no.: 03-41417401

Philips Airfryer Cooking Workshop with Chef Amy Beh

Chinese New Year (CNY) will be coming soon and this is a good time to learn new recipes to cook for your family. I went to the Philips Airfryer Cooking Workshop at Feves de Choco, Setapak last Saturday to learn to cook new CNY dishes with Chef Amy Beh. As many prepare to welcome the Year of the Rooster, it is time to fill the dining table with traditional Chinese New Year dishes to usher in more “fatt” with less fat with the help of Philips. Among the must-have dishes at the table are fish to signify abundance, spring rolls and dumplings to represent wealth, tang yuan also known as sweet rice balls for family togetherness, and oranges, tangerines and pomelos for fullness and wealth.



As significant as each dish is, it is also important to remember that cooking methods have health consequences. For example, consuming too much oily fried food is bad for the heart. This Chinese New Year, Philips Malaysia is collaborating with celebrity Chef Amy Beh and Feminine magazine to introduce the healthier versions of several familiar traditional dishes made using the Philips Airfryer with new TurboStar technology.



“Chinese New Year is a time for families and friends to gather and spend quality time with each other, while wishing each other prosperity and a good year ahead. The annual Chinese New Year reunion dinner with its menu of traditional Chinese dishes is especially significant for all generations of the family. However, those that are health conscious may be concerned that traditional Chinese dishes are often saturated in oil and unhealthy fats,” said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Chief Executive Officer of Philips Group of Companies in Malaysia. “Philips is dedicated to improving people’s lives through meaningful innovation, and this includes innovating convenient and time-saving appliances that help consumers prepare healthier meals. For Chinese New Year, we are collaborating with Chef Amy Beh to demonstrate how familiar Chinese dishes such as spring rolls and steamed chicken can be recreated with a healthier twist without compromising on taste using the Philips Airfryer equipped with new TurboStar technology.”

Now armed with TurboStar technology, the Philips Airfryer TurboStar is the latest in the Philips range of airfryers that helps consumers lose the oil but not the taste when cooking. From roasted pork to steamed chicken and spring rolls, the Philips Airfryer can help with the preparation of a complete Chinese New Year dinner for the coming Year of the Rooster.


All the participants of the cooking workshop had their hands on experience using this new Philips Airfryer TurboStar range. This is better than the old range that I am using because the basket can be taken out from the handle making it much easier to wash. 

Cheh Amy Beh taught us to cook 3 dishes - Tong Kwai Flavor Roasted Pork, Grilled Spicy Fish With Wonder Mushrooms and Tamarind Honey Prawns. 




My team cooked these 3 dishes. I liked the roasted pork the most as the skin was crunchy and meat was delicious. It's crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. These 3 dishes were cooked with organic Alce Nero products.

Philips Airfryer TurboStar
Featuring a more compact design without compromising on capacity, the latest addition to the Philips Airfryer range continues to offer great tasting fried food cooked with up to 80% less fat. Not only is the new Philips Airfryer space-saving, but it is also time-saving as pre-heating is no longer needed. It comes equipped with Philips TurboStar technology that enables users to fry with little or no oil and produce food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The TurboStar technology also cooks fried food 50% more evenly
and faster with no turning needed. 

In conjunction with Chinese New Year, Philips has released a limited edition red Philips Airfryer (HD9623/31) to liven up the kitchen with the festive colour. The Philips Airfryer is also available in digital versions (HD9640 at RRP RM1,399 and HD9643 at RRP RM1,499)

The Philips Airfryer with TurboStar technology is available at any Philips authorised retailer
nationwide, at the Philips Brand Store in Publika Shopping Gallery Kuala Lumpur and Sutera Mall Johor Bahru and the Philips Experience Store in Bayan Lepas, Penang. It is also available online at the Philips Official store on www.blip.my or Lazada on http://www.lazada.com.my/philips-official-store/.

Antabax, the no. 1 Halal antibacterial personal care range, Antabax organised a Doodle Competition for the second time, supported by the Ministry of Health & Ministry of Education and presented the prizes to the winners at Balai Seni Visual Negara on 7 January 2017.

Doodles are spontaneous marks that can take many forms, from abstract patterns or designs to images of objects, landscapes, people or faces. Research in neuroscience, psychology and design showed that doodling can help people stay focused, grasp new concepts and retain information. Here are some of the doodles from participants.



An exhibition of the 20 top doodle from each category, for a total of 80 exhibits was held at the National Visual Art Gallery, and was attended by the finalists, their families, friends and teachers who came from across the nation to show their support.


First, second and third place winners from each category will be receiving RM3,000, RM1,500 and RM800 respectively, while 17 consolation prize winners from all categories will receive RM100 each for their efforts.

According to Ms Angeline Sim, the Group Product Manager, Household & Personal Care, Marketing Division at Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, the doodle competition was an effort to combine good hygiene practices along with cognitive and creative expression.

“This is a platform to create an in-depth engagement with consumers, and to encourage the younger generation to practice good hygiene habits through a platform they can enjoy while retaining information about health,” she explained. 

“Maintaining good personal hygiene is necessary for many reasons – health, social, psychological and simply as a way of life. It helps to prevent the spread contagious diseases that are spread via contact, and reduces bad odours. Since doodling is beneficial to memory and grasping new concepts as shown by research, it helps to reinforce the connection to keeping good hygiene for better health,” she added.

A study in Applied Cognitive studies found that people who were asked to doodle while they were listening to list of people’s name being read to them were able to recall 29 percent more information when later they were surprised with a quiz.


 The top three winners from the primary, secondary, higher learning institution and open category of the ‘Cergas Bersama Antabax’ Doodle Compeition together with Antabax’s mascot, The Germ Buster.

All guests joined in for a live doodling session during the ‘Cergas Bersama Antabax’ doodle competition prize giving ceremony, showcasing the freedom of expression through art.

According to Senior Assistant Director of the Co-Curricular and Arts Division, Ministry of Education, Encik Mahamad Amran Bin Kamsi, the art of doodling is a good platform to engage and educate the younger generation by allowing them to express themselves.

“Malaysians are very creative and many of the works exhibited good skills, technique and most importantly, imagination and creativity. The Ministry of Education is always on the lookout for new ways to create a positive engagement with students, parents and teachers, to encourage quality and creative learning,” he said. 

“The ‘Cergas Bersama Antabax’ Doodle Competition had the combination of creative learning and good hygiene values to impart, which is what we look for in a good program. This Doodle Competition is indeed an effective tool to educate regarding hygiene,” he elaborated.

Senior Principal Assistant Director, Disease Control Division, Ministry of Health, Dr. Norita Shamsudin, also expressed that the ‘Cergas Bersama Antabax’ Doodle Competition was an innovative way to reinforce good hygiene practices among students and adults.

This is an activity anyone can do anytime and anywhere with a paper, pen or pencil. This is especially important in the younger generation as education regarding hygiene should start from an early age,” she explained.

Meanwhile, Mohd Syamil Aizat Bin Mesman, winner of the Primary School Category expressed his joy after successfully winning the cash prize and Antabax products.
