#Selangorlicious2 Launch Event - 13June2012

I attended #Selangorlicious2 Launch Event @ Paradox Art Cafe in Bandar Utama, Selangor (where else lar kan) yesterday. Honestly speaking, I have never browse thru #Selangorlicious website until recently, I have to say that I am impress and amaze on the content, baring in mind that I am not much of a foodie despite knowing few yummeh places in town (really few lar...).

Will browsing, I paid attention to the little details in #Selangorlicious site (being a marketing person myself); the theme was good for one - Selangorlicious, The Best Of Malaysian Cuisine In One State. They didn't stop here, they encourage contributors to share eateries, foods, drinks and to write or blog about them. Reminded me of this quote " Of the people, by the people, for the people"... ceh wahh.... Like real only.

The home page itself stated clearly :
  • Share your taste discoveries and win prizes worth up to RM 12,000
  • See what’s good to eat and drink around Selangor
  • Calling all writers, bloggers and photographers
Their listing was comprehensive and do expect more to come after the launch of #Selangorlicious2 yesterday, bet everyone can't wait to see new submissions and outlets around Selangor waiting to be tried and reviewed... yummeh babeh.

As I was writing this, I realised I don't have the press release (macam lah kite lak yang media nye) for me to include some of the points/objectives shared during the presentation. Once it is being picked up by media, I will revise and include it into my blog.

One point caught me was that they took this opportunity to announce a campaign targeting to not only blogger but to non-blogger as well. Detail as below.
