THE JAPANESE RESTAURANT

Sunway Putra Hotel (formerly known as The Legend Hotel) is graded for its value for service, hence does not come cheap but certainly worth the price paid. The Japanese Restaurant (formerly known as Gen Japanese Restaurant) is certainly the place to be if you’re looking for quality Japanese food with emphasis on taste, presentation, freshness and style.

The Japanese Restaurant

The Japanese Restaurant is a great location; being situated on the 10th floor of Sunway Putra Hotel, it provides a stunning view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline in its avant-garde restaurant setting. Sushi and sashimi were plated beautifully, the hot dishes were pretty much fusion-nisque as I don’t think they’re all Japanese cuisine, Teppanyaki section was good as you get to pick out the ingredients you want and let the chef do the ‘dirty’ work for you, and they have pretty good selection of fruits, cakes and ice-cream at the dessert section. I didn’t try the cold section though, with the cold soba, udon n other cold dishes, not really a fan of it.

Just give you a taster of what to expect, here is a shortened list on what is offered:

TINGE SAVE THE STARS

Now here’s the thing… I’m sure most of you have seen these TINGE bottles displayed in various shops, hypermarkets, kedai runcit and so on but never got the chance to try out, right? At least that’s what I experienced; I noticed the TINGE bottles but never did grab one and try it out.

Spritzer TINGE

Little did I know that TINGE is a mineral water, but with extra flavours! It comes with either Lemon of Fruit Fusion taste, so no more drinking boring plain water taste anymore. In fact, if you’re thinking it’s just another carbonated flavoured drink then you’re wrong. I thought so too, but found out that TINGE is non-carbonated, non-coloured, mildly sweetened mineral water drink! Now, this is the drink that all of you should start trying out now if you haven’t, simply exciting and trendy!

If that doesn’t brings up any interest for you to try out TINGE, here’s something…

SPRITZER MINI DISPENSER

I have to admit, I’m a lazy bum at times.

Lazy Bum

I mean.. we all need water daily, right? So here’s the thing: water container is in my house kitchen, so in order to get drinking water I had to leave my room and walk all the way to the kitchen (yaaah, as if it’s a super long journey lol) But still, I used to be so lazy that I’d rather skip drinking water just because of the inconvenience and the ‘extra miles’ haha. Thus, my mum had an idea to curb this just so I had sufficient amount of water in my body system (i used to fall sick often back then so yaa).

Water Bottles Reused

Yes, water bottles! My mum refills and stores water bottles in my room so I had no excuse not to drink. Until I found this…

Water Bottle Ask

Tuzki Bunny

Oh shit. Will I get cancer or something?!

Then I found out about Spritzer’s latest offering… a Mini Dispenser!

Spritzer Mini Dispenser

Most of us know that Spritzer water is always known for its quality bottled water. Being the leading mineral water supplier in the country, it’s pretty awesome that they launched their Mini Dispenser specially for urban usage, home, offices, outdoor activities or anywhere else. The Mini Dispenser Series will be able to support Spritzer 9.5L & 6L bottles, which is incredible!

Kind enough, Spritzer knew about my lazy bum issue (as if lol) and gave me one of their Spritzer Mini Dispenser to try out!

It’s actually pretty easy to set up; just turn the large water bottle upside down and place it directly on the water stand so that the needle-like base (don’t worry it’s not sharp lol) will pierce the water bottle lid for water supply to flow through!

Water Bubbles

Spritzer Mini Water Dispenser

There you go, awesome lah now I can drink good quality water! No more drinking from reused water bottles, I’m gonna get rid of them by sending it to recycle centre instead! :D

You can get one yourself too, it’s pretty affordable as well. Just check out the Online Shopping section @ http://www.spritzer.com.my/ :)
