[Event] MILO Malaysia Breakfast Day 2019

MILO Malaysia Breakfast Day 2019 returns for the 7th year!  2nd year for me.  One of the most anticipated event of the year for me coz of the fun games and goodies.  The one in Sabah seems to run around August.  Next one will be in Kuching, Sarawak on the 25th August 2019.  Estimated 5000 participants this year which was held on 4th August 2019 at Padang Merdeka Kota Kinabalu.  It's a short 3km run and everyone can join in.  Fun run, non competitive, but I still see people running at 3 or 4 mins pace per km 😂

I arrived early and got in line slightly later to take photos, also said hi to Cassie from afar, am surprised she noticed me from the crowd and said "Hi Mas", pemes sis sekejap.

For the love of potatoes! Check out this line up!

Delighting Fries Lovers as F&B outlets serves up tasty U.S Fries recipes.

Potatoes USA kicks off its U.S. Fries Fiesta campaign in Kota Kinabalu till 15 July 2019.

According to Potatoes USA’s country rep, Eddie Saw, “We are bringing the U.S. Fries Fiesta for the first time to Kota Kinabalu this year as there are many creative and fantastic chefs there that have managed to combine the quality imported products like U.S. fries together with the wide range of local ingredients from Sabah to produce exciting dishes for the locals and tourists.   

“A promotion such as this will help to bring out another side to the culinary range that Kota Kinabalu has to offer.  We’d like to highlight to the growing pool of food enthusiasts in East and West Malaysia, especially lovers of fries, that there are great food & beverage outlets that they should try,” said Eddie.    

Altogether, 9 outlets are participating in the U.S Fries Fiesta campaign, all serving up unique and tantalizing dishes using U.S. fries varieties.

Arguably an unprecedented campaign dedicated to fries, the campaign is two-pronged in objectives. First, it’s to stimulate excitement amongst the trade to be as creative as they can with creating various culinary presentations with U.S. fries, exciting their customers, especially frozen potato lovers.
