While most locals may have become accustomed enjoying potatoes in their more savoury forms such as fried, mashed or backed, the humble potato when cooked discerningly is in fact one of the healthiest vegetables one can consume.

One medium size (5.3 ounce) skin-on US potato contains just 110 calories per serving, boats more potassium (620g) than a banana, provide almost half the daily value of Vitamin C (45 percent) and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. 

Which would you like to try?

When it comes to US potatoes, Malaysians will not have to compromise taste for any health reasons. A healthy, balanced meal can be just as tasteful. Just look at the photos taken during the event. 
Baked, mashed, roasted or fried, US potatoes have a remarkable ability to enhance whatever dish is served with them, enhancing presentation, adding value and appetite appeal. A growing pool of research confirms that potatoes play a positive role in healthy diet. Research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition demonstrates that people can eat potatoes and still lose weight.

Planning on budget family vacation

We have interest to go for vacation during school holiday, however we can't afford expensive vacation. Legoland can be removed from the lists, I was told the price tickets are expensive now. My boys love Lego toys, they have played Lego toys set at home. I am sure both of them will be happy playing with Lego if they are in Legoland, we can never get enough of Lego bricks.

Local tourism destination in Malaysia seems nice, shall take out the Malaysia's map to see where to go. I have in mind is Langkawi, Kuching/Sarawak for Jong's crocodile farm - the biggest crocodile farm in Malaysia.

My dear promises me on Kuala Selangor to see firefly when we were dating, that until today never fulfill. There's one more is fishing too, that's another promise that he did.

Where's your ideal family vacation for family of four?
