Those hailing from East Malaysia should be familiar with the home-grown Sarawakian food franchise chain SUGARBUN - as it is not only founded in Sarawak, but also held a significant meaning for Sarawakians.
As a child living in Kuching, when I was younger, my parents would often bring me and my siblings to SugarBun to celebrate birthdays, or just to have a meal as there is an outlet near our house and back then, western restaurants weren't a go-to restaurant as a child.
I remember fondly each and every moments I spent in SugarBun, and there was one time when it rained so after dinner, we sheltered ourselves while waiting for my dad to come and pick us up. There were lots of people visiting the diner, and it was always crowded.
Until now, SugarBun has always been my number one favourite type of fast food chicken as it does not feel fatty, nor oily and it has an authentic herb taste, and its crispiness does not feel like crunching on fried plastic which is often the case for unscrupulous business owners nowadays.
Getting out of topic - the actual reason why I am sharing on SugarBun today is cause in conjunction with Malaysia Day 2017, (Held every Sept 16 to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysia Federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, Singapore and Sarawak to form Malaysia). Hence, SugarBun is introducing the Truly Malaysian Combo promotion. According to Jason Ho, SugarBun Marketing Manager, "SugarBun's Truly Malaysian Combo guarantees an ultimate pleasure for all Malaysians while celebrating Malaysia Day".
The combo which will be available for 30 days starting from Sept 15 to Oct 15 at all Sabah Sarawak restaurants except airports comprises three different sets in accordance to number of pax.
Combo 1 at RM 10.90 : 1 Nasi Lemak Classic, 1 piece of broasted chicken, 1 cup of premium 3 layer tea (for the singles)
Combo 2 at RM 28.90 : 1 Nasi Lemak Classic, 1 Asian Claypot Chicken Mushroom with Fragrant Rice, 2 cups of premium 3 layer tea (for those going on dates)
Combo 3 at RM 69.00 : 1 Kano Meal, 1 set of Asian Claypot Chicken Mushroom with Fragrant Rice, 1 Nasi Lemak Classic, 5 pieces of broasted chicken and 5 cups of premium 3 layer tea. (for families)
SugarBun does not disappoint cause :
1. Their Nasi Lemak sambal was a fuse of sweet and spicy which is the type of sambal taste I appreciate. Their rice definitely tasted like the authentic santan rice.
2. Their 3 layer tea is for the sweet tooth as it can get pretty sweet than normal 3 layers, but I guess that is the magic of our local teh c peng 3 layer, tea mix together with evaporated milk and gula apong.
3. Their broasted chicken. why? YOU DON'T KNOW WHY? Broasting is a method of frying chicken by pressure cooking the deep frying chicken/meat that has been marinated and breaded/coated with seasoning flour and it definitely is different than other crunchy fast food chain chicken
4. Have you tried their Asian Delight menu ? I tried their chicken mushroom soup and it is savoury while the chicken curry gives out a strong herb taste
5. Best part is SugarBun is from Sarawak, therefore being the patriotic Sarawakian me, I always feel proud eating something that is locally grown and success, it just makes me feel that we can do anything if we put our heads into it.
So run to your nearest SugarBun restaurant to enjoy their broasted chicken, nasi lemak, asian delights and many others including chickies which is chicken finger nuggets, a quick on-the-go snack.

Attended the launched of Hotlink's latest plan in Sabah Sarawak this morning at Feast & Furious Cafe. Received a goody bag from them - a hot wheels car (which Xavier appreciates most) .
When I looked at the toy car, I was surprised as it's not common for goody bags to have toys inside. Let alone coming from a telco company.
But there is a resemblance of the race car toy & what the telco company is launching.
First thing first .
We were provided with statistics of internet users in Sarawak & Sabah . Which I found rather interesting .
77% of the population in both states uses smartphones , the average person uses 7.1gb of internet ; which is the highest in comparison to the other states in Malaysia.
To add on, Maxis also recently emerged as the overall winner with 4 stars rating, the highest rating standard in telco category in consistently delivering smooth high-definition video streaming across all 14 states, according to YouTube's Video Checkup.
Without further ado, the latest plan by Hotlink has just made its way into Sabah & Sarawak .
This plan provides 4 features :
1. FREE 8GB 4G INTERNET DURING THE WEEKEND - 8GB spread into 4 weekends, with each weekend, users can enjoy 2gb of fast internet . 😍
2. FREE 30GB PER MONTH ON WEEKDAYS HAPPY HOUR - Users can choose any time of the day during the weekdays to use the 1gb fast internet for 1 hour !! Best part is , the internet is FREE and it can be used for any media applications including YouTube 😍
3. FREE 30GB PER MONTH ON INTERNET LARUT MALAM - Don't think Hotlink has forgotten about our midnight usage . Every night starting from 1am to 7am, users will receive a total of 1gb accumulation to 30gb per month of 4G internet ! Great news for those all nighters / owls . 😍
4. FREE 1000 MINUTES CALLS TO 5 FRIENDS OR FAMILIES OF MAXIS/HOTLINK - Yes , crazy deals must be completed with more crazy deals right ?? Free calls ?? Eh any maxis/Hotlink 2 users ? Come lets gossip over the phone . Hahaha . 😍
I have been using Hotlink for awhile now . I just love their fast internet so after finding out about their latest plan deal, I immediately change. Existing Hotlink users can also opt for upgrade via the Hotlink Red App (downloadable on Android/IOS stores) and it only cost RM 1 !
For non users, the sim card plan can be purchased at the price of RM 10 and it comes with 300MB preloaded 4G high-speed internet, RM 5 preloaded airtime and free basic Internet.
Of course, everything free must come with a consequences right ? The only terms and condition for this plan is to always keep the number/account activated by reloading your prepaid account. That's all.
Next is some illustrations steps on how I upgraded my plan this afternoon :
Click on Rewards.
Upgrade rate plan page will pop out.
YES TAKE ME THERE
CONFIRM CONFIRM CONFIRM
Received a text just immediately.
Now all I have to do is to remind myself to use the weekend internet via data since I'm always WIFI-dependent. heee
I'm always in such awe as our modern technology upgrades. Evans used to tell me how he and his ex girlfriend would 3G call each other with what then used to be known as fast speed internet but now realises it's too darn slow.
In all means, I'll just leave this post for y'all to decide, because yes I can vouch for Hotlink they have a speedy stable Internet. & Today I also learnt that they are gradually covering even tertiary towns in our state. Great news!

Hui Lau Shan is not your simple, average blended mango juice. According to South East Asia General Manager, Pan Vui Shang, Hui Lau Shan is a mango dessert that is nothing complicated yet not easy to prepare. With over 50 and more years being in the dessert market, each Hui Lau Shan outlet around the world is designed so that patrons can take a peek into their fruit bar and watch the people behind the scenes creating the dessert that is loved through generations.
Hui Lau Shan Healthy dessert chain recently entered into East Malaysia at Viva City Shopping Mall Kuching, and while it is the first here, it is their 20th store around Malaysia. Malaysians have been raving for their dessert since opening of stores at West Malaysia, and Kuchingnites can now enjoy it as much as they like with just a drive to Viva City Shopping Mall.
My verdict : We were served with mango pop, mango sago, mango pudding, both mango and durian mochi and both mango and durian pancakes. FYI Mango Sago is Hui Lau Shan first dessert that made the whole healthy dessert store chain change back in the 90s. It was the first leap from guillingao and other traditional chinese herbal desserts, to something new, something that people had not seen before. The mango sago was well received then, and people loved the dessert.
Among the desserts I tried, I personally prefer Mango Sago for the balance of taste between sweet and sour. Apart from that, I also prefer the durian pancake. I loved it so much that I went back the next day to grab a box myself.
Hui Lau Shan upholds their standard from day 1, and their mangoes and durians are curated carefully to better serve their patrons. The tangy mangoes are from Thailand and Phillipines while, their durians are from our homeland - Malaysia. Best is, they only take the best of the best Durian which is the D24. Therefore, their durian pancake is so flavourful that you actually feel like you are eating the real thing. The smell is strong definitely, and it gives you the same feeling of eating the durian especially after your burp.
The next best thing to try is their curry fishball - the snack is a famous Hong Kong street snack. Dip with curry, the fish ball although it is like any familiar food we have in Malaysia but the taste of the curry leave off a distinct taste on the taste buds simultaneously introducing us to an unfamiliar culture that is Hong Kong.
