The First Lego Ninjago The Ride In Asia Comes To Malaysian Shores

My family and I love to go to Legoland especially my children. We were really excited to be invited to try out Ninjago The Ride at Legoland. This ride is open to the public on 4th November 2016. 

LEGOLAND is a Theme Park, Water Park and Hotel in one LEGO® themed location. It is a family holiday destination with more than 70 handson rides, slides, shows and attractions and designed for families with children aged 2-12. It’s the first of its kind in Asia and offers adventure, education and fun for action-packed day trips or short break destination. The resort was awarded the Best Tourist Attraction in the Man-Made Attraction category at the prestigious Malaysia Tourism Awards for the year of 2014/2015, ranked No.1 in the TripAdvisor® Traveller’s choice award 2016 as the first choice families hotel in Malaysia, and named No.6 in Asia overall, being the only resort in Asia to make the cut. On top of that, the Resort also received the Merit Award at the Landscape Design Awards for the year 2015, given and recognized by the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia, under the Professional Category. Having bagged these achievements and many more unstated, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort seeks to continue to expand and bring new additions to the Resort, to ensure that it remains the crown jewel of Malaysia.

LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort announced the opening of its latest hi-tech attraction on 28th October 2016, LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride, the very first of its kind in Asia. The new ride enables guests to use their hands to throw virtual lightning bolts, move shockwaves, send ice soaring and emit fireballs with incredible accuracy. The ride is the Resort’s largest additional investment since its opening and is set to redefine the theme park experience for guests.

LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride is a fully immersive 4D dark-ride inspired by the highly popular LEGO® line of NINJAGO™ toys and TV series, allowing guests to become their favourite characters and defeat enemies, from snake tribes, ghosts and skeletons to the Great Devourer under the guidance of Master Wu. The unique hand gesture technology by Triotech defines the experience by letting guests throw virtual projectiles with mere hands.

“These are exciting times for LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort. LEGO® NINJAGO™ is an incredibly popular brand and we’re proud to be the first to bring this experience to Asia. The LEGO® brand inspires people to grow through play and it is this commitment that breathes life into the attractions we have at LEGOLAND. We’ve taken a few steps in the right direction here, as LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride takes immersion and play to a whole other level,” says Young PilKim, LEGOLAND’s General Manager (Interim).

With an investment of more than RM40 million, LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride is experienced in 3D and features effects such as heat, smoke and wind throughout the adventure, giving guests the ultimate 4D experience. But the real highlight of the ride is its hand gesture technology. Manufactured by Triotech, a global leader in media-based interactive attractions, the technology enables guests to do as the ninjas do and launch fireballs, lightning, shockwaves or ice with hand movements. Hi-tech sensors register these movements with great accuracy and seamlessly launch virtual projectiles towards the targets on display. Up to four guests sit in each ride vehicle and are guided through various scenes encountering villains and challenges. At the end of the quest, guests can view their individual scores on display.

You might need some practice before you can control the powers. Hands have to be a minimum of 8 inches high above the sensors. The duration of the ride is 3 minutes 30 seconds long. Children must be at least 115cm tall and 6 years old to go on the ride unaccompanied by an adult. The 4D effects consisting of heat, smoke and wind are incorporated throughout the adventure giving guest the ultimate interactive experience.

According to Young, LEGO® NINJAGO™ The Ride is among several planned additions meant to take the Resort to the next level, “We’ve always believed in introducing new additions to the Resort every year to ensure that every visit is a new one. This ride is a little special because of the large investment that went with it, but it should point to our commitment to bring state-of-theart play to the region – the way only LEGOLAND® can. And we’re not stopping here. LEGO® fans can look forward to plenty of exciting things to come from us for 2017.”

My Vanquish Treatment at Premier Clinic - Part 2

I was at Premier Clinic for my 2nd vanquish treatment. If you want to know more about what vanquish is, you can read my earlier post HERE. When I was there, they weighed me as usual, got my body fat measured , blood pressured readings and did all the necessary procedures before my vanquish treatment. I lost about 0.6 kg since my first treatment. It was not much because the doctor said it usually needs about 7 to 8 treatments, each treatment done weekly to see results.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur, the award-winning indoor themed learning centre, announces Fipper Marketing Sdn Bhd as the newest member of its circle of forward thinking industry partners.

Supporting KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s unique approach to inculcating life skills learning in children, the partnership with Fipper will see the addition of the ‘Fipper Slipper Workshop’ to KidZania’s child-friendly cityscape. The establishment will enable children to participate in a fresh variety of profession based role-play activities designed to expose them to product design and basic innovation.

At the Fipper establishment, children will be able to experience the work of a Slipper Maker and Retail Manager. The former role will educate children on the basic construction of slippers and instances where materials and tools can be used to improve the product, while those in the role of the latter will experience the importance of attentiveness and product knowledge in servicing and managing customers.

“At KidZania Kuala Lumpur, we are dedicated to our ‘Learn Life Today’ value proposition, which
places emphasis on life skills development in children. With the establishment of Fipper within
KidZania Kuala Lumpur, we are thrilled to be able to present to kids the opportunity to view
innovation, not simply as the development of an entirely new product; but innovation as the
recreation of novelty in everyday items,” said Susanah Abdul Rani, Governor of KidZania Kuala
Lumpur and Singapore who commemorated the event with the symbolic presentation of ‘keys’ to
the city to its new partner.

“One myth about innovation is that it is all about new products. That is not necessarily so, and
the success of Fipper Slippers is a testament to that. We’ve taken the everyday slipper and modernised it to be relevant to current trends and needs. I am confident that the establishment of
Fipper Slipper Workshop in Kidzania Kuala Lumpur, will provide the platform to educate the
young generation about the importance of innovative thinking and the possibilities of the future,”
said Danny Goh, Director of Fipper Marketing Sdn Bhd.

Incorporated in 2008, Malaysian brand Fipper, has established itself as an industry leader in the rubber slipper business with outlets located across Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mauritius, Cambodia, Vietnam, Europe and USA. Fipper sets itself apart from other slipper manufacturers by focusing efforts in the design and innovation of its products, producing
highly popular slippers that are not only trendy but environmentally responsible. All Fipper products are biodegradable, anti-bacterial, BPA Free.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur offers over 100 profession related role-playing activities spread across 60 various city establishments that encourage children to practice adaptive and positive behavior that will help to groom them to handle the demands and challenges of everyday life.

Grey N Blue Restaurant, Mahkota Cheras

When you are around Mahkota Cheras area, you will notice many restaurants mushrooming there. Sometimes it's a hard decision to choose which restaurant to dine in. I was invited to Grey N Blue and I would recommend this restaurant if you want a nice and cozy restaurant with delicious food.

This restaurant has 3 storeys and they offer different seating arrangements to let customers feel more relaxed.

Grey N Blue serves western cuisines, local delights and vegetarian food with over 100 choices. Western food and Chinese food are handled by 2 different chefs. These are the dishes I tried here.

Cheese Chicken Chop - RM 22.00. The grilled boneless chicken topped with mozzarella cheese, thousand island, ham, served with potatoes wedges and salad is a must try because the tender chicken meat really went well with the mozzarella cheese and thousand island. This was my favorite dish.

Deep Fried Calamari - RM 13.00 was crispy and delicious.

Mixed Grilled Platter - RM 50.00 is a combination of lamb, prawn, ham and tomato in a sizzling hot plate. The prawn was covered with cheese and was very fresh and tasty.

Spaghetti Vongole - RM 20.00 had lots of fresh baby clams cooked with garlic, chilli flakes and white wine sauce.

Seafood Cioppino - RM 28.00 was my daughter's favorite because she loved the taste of the tomato sauce and all the prawns, squids and mussels.

Roast Scotch Chicken - RM 25.00 was served with ham, tomatoes, broccoli and sauce. The chicken meat was tender and it was well marinated.

Jumbo Breakfast - RM 19.80 is perfect for breakfast as there is egg, chicken sausage, turkey ham, tomatoes, salad, potatoes, and mushrooms. A healthy breakfast for a great start of the day.

Three Mini Beef Burgers - RM 21.00. Toasted mini sesame seed buns sandwiched with homemade pate, tomato, cheese sauce and cucumber served with potato wedges and salad.

Salted Egg Chicken was spicy and salty. It's not suitable for those who do not like spicy food.

The shaved ice cream with 3 flavors - Taro Yam, Strawberry and Honeydew - RM 12.90 each

S'more Dip - RM 26.90 was very sweet because there was melted marshmallow and chocolate. It was served with crackers.

Don't Ask, Must Try - RM 19.90 looked really creative and nice. This is one of the signature dessert here and it's a must try. This is toasted bread with bread pudding, kiwi, strawberries, raisins, ice cream, cornflakes and chocolate sticks.

33 Seafood Steamboat Restaurant at Bandar Puteri Puchong

I read a lot of good reviews on the seafood at 33 Seafood Steamboat Restaurant at Bandar Puteri Puchong and decided to try it out with my family last week. The restaurant was quite easy to find and there were lots of parking lots.

The interior of the restaurant was just newly renovated. This restaurant used to serve steamboat but is now serving seafood in a different and unique style which the boss, Simon says it's the trend these days.

When my family was there, we tried the Flaming Pronto since this was recommended to us. This special dish has Whisky in it. Here's a video when the dish was brought to us by Simon. 

This special sauce tasted really nice and I was delighted to see such big fresh water prawn in it. There were other seafood such as tiger prawns, bamboo clams, white squid, mussels and golden scallops. There were also corns, brinjals, beans and other vegetables in it. This dish was also served with bread. This set A is RM 98.00 and it's for 2-3 pax.

My son had the kids meal - Spaghetti with minced meat and sausage with marshmallow and  ice cream. My son liked the ice cream the most.

We also had their popular Muar otak-otak which was very delicious and tasty. I couldn't find a good restaurant that sells good otak-otak in Klang Valley before I tried this. The otak-otak meat was big and there were lots of spicy fish taste. Six pieces was only RM 10.00 which is quite reasonable because it was brought down all the way from Muar, Johor.

My family and I will come back to try the different types of cooking methods when we are free. I can't comment as I haven't tasted the different types of cooking. These photos were given to me by the owner, Simon. The photos really make me feel hungry.

33 Seafood Steamboat also serves other cooking choices besides Flaming Pronto for their seafood.

1) Sweet, Sour and Spicy

2) Kam Heong

3) Thai Hot Sauce

4) Cheesy Mozzarella

Here are more photos given to me from Simon.
