Newly opened Palazzo Viva, Bangsar Kuala Lumpur

A one-of-a-kind gourmet casual dining experience has arrived in the heart of the trendy Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur. With its all in one dining options and a wide variety of a food and drinks interchanging daily from breakfast to lunch and dinner, Palazzo Viva is no doubt the place to be if one is looking for a unique dining experience.




 It's grand launch on last Monday greeted the guests with an interesting array of welcome refreshments. A variety of fresh tapas and canapes, such as beef tartare with mango yolk sauce, black olive, spinach salad and potato crisp; hot ricotta with cherry tomato, aubergines, basil and tomato sauce; chicken with mango and cucumber salsa; and eggs carbonara with beef bacon and parmesan sauce were served either hot or cold respectively. These tapas and canapes are also available during normal operating hours and the choices changes everyday. There was also an assorted range of gourmet confectionary, which were prepared fresh and exclusively for the evening. Palazzo Viva further introduced their specialty cocktails & mocktails to their guests during that evening.

Mr. Jay Lee, the Director of Palazzo Viva giving his speech.

Mr. Jay Lee, the Director of Palazzo Viva graduated from University of Melbourne, majoring in Mechanical Engineering & Management. He is also the Business Management Director & Head of Design in S.Kian Seng Group of Companies (SKS). One cannot help but to wonder how did a Mechanical Engineer/ Business Development Director / Head of Design ended up in attempting to break through the F&B industry. Mr. Jay Lee says it lies in the sights and experience that he had gathered throughout the years in F&B related businesses. What he learned inspired him to introduce a unique dining concept to Malaysia's F&B industry. Excellent dining and entertainment experience does not depend solely on the excellence of the cuisine, but the ambience as well.

The concept of Palazzo Viva differs from most restaurants in such a way that its ambience and menu changes throughout the day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Imagine dining in Palazzo Viva for breakfast then returning again for dinner, only to feel as if you had stepped in a different place. 
Jay proudly introduced his team of experienced culinary chefs; chef Andrea & Luigi. The co-owner master pastry chef, Chef Denis Dianin, had acquired the AMPI (Academia Maestri Pasticceri Italiani) award, which is equivalent to a 3 star Michelin award in the confectionary world. An interesting point to note, Chef Denis majored in Robotics Engineering at Marconi University Italia. During the course of his studies, he developed a passion in baking, which led to Chef Denis pursing a career as a pastry chef.

Planning on school holiday to Dubai

My friends are planning on school holiday, they have ideal place to go. They want to go Dubai because they heard and saw many nice pictures of this country. I am sure they want to check out hotels in dubai, if not where else they can stay? Unless they have friends or relatives or family members there which they can accommodate with.

Beside the view and sightseeing it the country, they are searching to know what is cheap to purchase in Dubai. Well everyone has got their budget and shopping list to shop. One of my friends told me she interest to check out their jewellery, I don't know if diamonds are cheaper there. How about clothes and bags in Dubai, are there selling cheaper there?

Talking of vacation, she has a shopping list in hand now where she needs to purchase luggage bags and a digital camera. She also needs to bring her family to make passports for everyone. It's her first family vacation to bring her children and parents for vacation to Dubai. It's going to be great vacation for everyone, can't wait to find out more details from her. I want to know what's on her shopping list in shopping in Dubai. Dubai is one of her wishlist that she wants to go. I told her to purchase sunscreen as she will needs them if they are going for beach. We needs to use sunscreen everyday anyway. I told her not to left out the sunscreen product and pack in her luggage bag.

It's more than just having a nice vacation in Dubai, not just shopping or enjoy the sightseeing but the food too. I am sure she will need to find restaurants to dine and what to eat in Dubai. I wonder if Dubai food any similar to Malaysia's food.

It's good to plan on vacation during the school holiday, so it does not disturb the children on school days. We don't want the children being left out or absent from school.

I haven't been to Dubai, I still need to save more money for a family vacation.
