Never too BIG for #AirAsiaBIG Loyalty

Never too BIG for AirAsia BIG Loyalty when it comes to celebration.

In conjunction with Paradigm Mall 5th Anniversary celebration held recently, I was able to witness the effort the AirAsia BIG Loyalty team poured generously in preparing, executing and giving to the participants and its members. It (almost) felt like Christmas came early this year. As if ‘failing is not an option’ is their mantra, AirAsia’s award-winning Loyalty Programme pulled off yet another thunderous event; giving away a brand-new Nissan X-Trail, 300 FREE AirAsia seats redemption, 9 FREE AirAsia Return Flight Tickets and as usual, many more attractive prizes.

And if you feel this is too small a gift from AirAsia BIG Loyalty and in ensuring everyone stand a chance to win, this ‘The Big Giveaway’ campaign is from 29th April to 7th July, 2017 whereby one lucky winner will get to drive home a Nissan X-Trail or prizes worth 10,000 BIG Points, not only that, we shoppers get to earn 3 BIG Points for every RM1 when we shop or dine at participating outlets in Paradigm Mall. With this exciting campaign, I foresee travellers (including myself) will frequent this mall.

As Paradigm Mall offers plenty retail outlet options, click here - Paradigm Mall site to know more, makes it easy for one to do their monthly shopping chores here and at the same time win some prizes. Or perhaps start shopping on travel luggage in preparation for AirAsia flight tickets win.

During this anniversary event, shoppers can redeem their free AirAsia seats on the spot and travel between 1st May till 30th June, 2017, all they need to do (or did) was be the first 100 shoppers to flash the AirAsia BIG Loyalty mobile app and share a destination from the monthly Final Call Sales. As easy as one, two, three.

Even the easy peasy fun element at the event site stands a chance to win a free seats. Paper Plane might sound kiddish and easy, but doubt not as it is pretty hard to get the paper plane to flight straight and far. In order to be fair to those who ‘flew, blew and threw’ their paper plane in the Paper Plane Tournament, free Air Asia return flights to Macau, Luang Prabang in Laos, and Visakhapatnam in India is theirs for keep. Easy game and easy wins don’t you think so. AirAsia BIG Loyalty believes that fairness are meant for all ages, while the adult busy maneuvering their plane, the kids are being entertained at the Little League corner, enjoying colouring and drawing contest where Yogood Junior goodies bags can be won.

This doesn’t stop here, freebies worth RM120,000 from AirAsia BIG Loyalty partners such as L’oreal, rokKi, Astro, Klook among others were enjoyed by event goers at Paradigm Mall.

So what are you waiting for, head to Paradigm Mall now!

Melaka Delicacy - Asam Pedas | #ICYDKMelaka

This is indeed very rare, hence I shall make it short, sweet and simple (probably 1 para with pics and I call it done. Hahhahhahahaa…. Giler pemalas)

A trip to Melaka ain’t complete until you try their famous dish – asam pedas. And I was waiting patiently for a trip to an asam pedas warung, I learnt that we get to eat the famous asam pedas and kari kambing. The kari kambing was new, I never knew that Melaka is famous for kari kambing, well…. Now I know. And it was rather delicious, if I may say so myself.

Sungai Tambak Merlang is popular and famous for its asam pedas and kari kambing power warungs. Along the wrong, you’ll find a few of the asam pedas and kari kambing warungs (stalls), all you need to do is pick one to try. The Asam Pedas set is usually paired with ulam (salad), sambal belacan (chilli shrimp paste) and boiled salted egg. Located probably 30mins to Asahan in Jasin, one can make a short and quick detour at lunch to feast their growling tummy.

Having been operating for 20 years, Yusri Nadin; the proud onwer of Warung Kari Kambing Power & Asam Pedas Claypot shows no sign of stopping, a signature dish that one must try is the asam pedas ikan pari (spicy and sour stingray and mutton spicy curry). According to Yusri, 2 goats per day for his special kari kambing and it is sold out as early as 9am in the morning despite the fact that the warung actual calls it a day at 3pm. For those interested to try this famous dish, you know what time you need to head here.

Aside from the asam pedas and kari kambing, lontong Kering is one of the popular delicacy in Warung Kari Kambing Power & Asam Pedas Claypot. Being located in the meeting point of Melaka, Johor and Negeri Sembilan, it comes as no surprise that Lontong Kering is also famous is the district of Jasin. The serunding (coconut floss) and kuah kacang (peanut sauce) is simply superb. Do try it as well.

The origin of Asam Pedas
Asam Pedas can be traced as far as Pekanbaru in Sumatera, just across Melaka; devided by Straits of Melaka and also the Riau Islands Province. Some said that as the Minangkabau suku (where asam pedas originally came from – the Minangkabau clan of Sumatera) who roamed across Asia has made their ways to Peninsular Malaysia few hundred years ago along with their customs, culture and culinary; settling in Negeri Sembilan (an adat Pepatih state just next to Melaka). Assimilation of lifestyle formed, as well as the famed localized delicacy that is now popular in Melaka – Asam Pedas. Strangely, being a descendant of Minangkabau from Padang, my family has never claimed nor cook this dish in any occasion. Perhaps the localized Melaka version is more famous I guess.

For those who is traveling to Melaka and looking forward to sample Melaka Asam Pedas and Kari Kambing, well, you know where to go to *wink*.
