I Was Searching For A New Washing Machine...

and there's something that I would like to share with you all. It's a video about the crew that was shooting the still photos for Samsung Ecobubble washing machine had an uninvited guest. Watch the video first before you continue reading.

So, what you think about the video. Yes it's actually not a real bear but I think it's kind of creative way to show how powerful the Samsung Ecobubble washing machine is. Even a bear's fur can be washed from brown to white lol. It's kind of nice too the CGI of the bears. No wonder it has more than 5 million views now.

Upon checking the Samsung Ecobubble website, why the washing can be so powerful is because according to the website; "Samsung’s ecobubble™ technology uses a bubble generator to dissolve detergent into the water and inject air, making a rich soapy foam cushion. This means detergent is better dissolved and penetrates clothes faster so cleaning needs less hot water. Super Eco Wash mode washes at just 15°C with great results, so you save energy."

Using less hot water means no need to heat up the water so much, hence one can save up on energy there. With the cost of electricity going up every now and then, I will try to purchase electrical appliances that has energy saving features. I think with Samsung's Ecobubble technology that efficiently dissolving the detergent, I will not have to use too much detergent to clean the same amount of clothes as before. This will help to save the river from being polluted with detergent. Of course, using a Eco-friendly detergent will helps a lot too.

Some of the Samsung Ecobubble models come with Vibration Reduction Technology (VRT) which is a sophisticated sensors that keep laundry loads balanced and reduce noise and vibration. Now this will really help because the old washing machine that I'm using is so noisy that even I could hear the knocking sound from my room on the 1st floor. I will have good night sleep with VRT washing machine when washing the clothes overnight.

One of the criteria that a washing machine could save energy is by having a inverter motor. Samsung Ecobubble washing machine uses the Digital Inverter Motor that cuts energy waste, lasts longer and reduces noise. I think my search for a new washing machines ends here.

Last Saturday I went to Sutera Gemilang Auto in Shah Alam, one of the Hyundai 3S Center which was selected out of 12 outlets to host "ONCE UPON A TIME -皇宫灿烂 CASTS AUTOGRAPH SESSION". While waiting for the cast to arrive, I was able to go and see what is a Hyundai 3S Center is all about.

Sorry, Jack Lim is not included in your package.

So, what does 3S stands for? A 3S CENTRE consists of SALES, SERVICE AND SPARE PARTS. A pit-stop for Hyundai &Inokom car lovers to service and purchase their Hyundai cars.Claim insurance & windscreen can be done in their service center.

Imagine, if you go to a normal workshop. The mechanic found that you have a faulty master brake pump and it needs to be change with a new one. The mechanic called the spare parts dealer and the part needs 2 or 3 hours to be delivered. You got no where to go and have to stuck in the workshop for 2 to 3 hours waiting for the spare part and another 2 hour for the brake pump to be installed. Half a day gone.

If the same case happens in a 3S Centre, then you only have to wait 2 hours for the installation because spare parts are easily available. Unless it's something too complicated then the 3S Center will order for you. Heck, you might even save on the overcharge of spare parts by a normal workshop.

While waiting for your Hyundai to be serviced, relax at the Customer Lounge.

Have a cup of White Coffee, which is free while watching your Hyundai being serviced by the professionals.

Too boring? No sweat. Go try out some of the latest Hyundai models. It's a showroom too after all.

Sorry, Gan Mei Yan 顏微恩 not included when you buy a Hyundai Sonata.

While there was still a bit of time before the cast appear. I went for a lucky dip in the magic cubic cube. Won myself a Hyundai 2013 Desktop Calendar.

Finally some of the casts from the movie "ONCE UPON A TIME -皇宫灿烂" has arrived to meet the fans. The casts were led by lead actor and producer Jack Lim 林德荣, Gan Mei Yan 顏微恩, Jeff 陈浩然, 曾洁钰, 颜江瀚 and the director Silver Yee.

ONCE UPON A TIME -皇宫灿烂 is a local Chinese New Year movie produced by Jack Lim, which he is also the lead actor. It's been kind of his tradition now to come up with CNY movie every year ever since the first one, 大日子 Tiger Woohoo. Coming soon to cinema on 7th Feb 2013. Most likely the first CNY movie I will watch because I got the tickets for the special screening on 4th Feb 2012.

Fans gets to play game with the casts and win some prizes.

Jack Lim 林德荣, Jeff 陈浩然, and 曾洁钰 sings the movie theme song (风霜) live.

Last but not least. The casts sign on the movie merchandises bought by the fans.

Eat, Play, Drive with Nissan Almera - Aunty Koh Best Cendol

Last month, I was invited to join a test drive food trip by Nissan Malaysia. The plan is to drive from KL to Malacca and explore some of the good food there. I was assigned with Kelly and Joshua to drive a stock entry level Nissan Almera which doesn't have the push-start key-less feature. Some of the other teams were driving Impul premium version which comes with the key-less feature and body kit with 16 inch rims. The stock comes with 15 inch rims.

The trusty Nissan Almera that I drove.

The Impul Almera.

One thing about the Nissan Almera is the spacious boot space. It can easily fit two of me inside. I am 178cm tall and weight about 95KG. Yes, so gonna lose weight soon.

The journey to Malacca was quite smooth. Although the pick up response is a bit laggy for the Nissan Almera but once you are in a constant speed, it is a smooth ride all the way. Well, Nissan Almera is built for economy and fun driving in mind. If one wanted a speed demon, one would have gone for a Nissan GTR.

The fuel economy is surprisingly good even after driving some long sub-urban road to reach Aunty Koh Best Cendol in Bukit Rambai we only have to fuel up about RM 16.78 worth of RON95 petrol to reach full tank again. That works out about 6.8 liter/100KM.

The first stop is Aunty Koh Best Cendol as I've mentioned. It took a lot of turnings in the sub-urban area after Alor Gajah exit to reach Bukit Rambai. I was told that Aunty Koh only opens for business during the weekends from 12pm to 2pm but usually sold out by 1pm.

It is actually a stall located in a house with huge land, so parking will be easily available but advised to reach early so that you don't have to wait for too long.

We have a huge orders and Aunty Koh only works alone so we need to wait for quite a while.

And it's worth the wait. The cendol here is thick, springy and rich with the taste of pandan and santan. The gula melaka used is also not too sweet and rich with the aroma of gula melaka. I would have to say that this is one of the best cendol I've eaten so far.

Here are the videos of Aunty Koh preparing the cendols for us.

Besides the normal cendol, I also tried the santan-less Taibak. Pandan infused sugar syrup is used for Taibak instead of gula melaka. For those that can't take santan, this is a good alternative to have a go at cendol like dessert. Personally, I still prefer cendol. Taibak is a bit too plain for me.

Everyone seems to like Aunty Koh Best Cendol.

More food posts will be posted on this Eat, Play, Drive trip. Stay tuned.
