Official magazine for CTB 2 ~ Santai & Local 4 Travel magazine

Hello peeps !!!

First of all let's give a big hand to our Football squad 'Harimau Malaya' for their excellent performance even they lost against Singapore last night. Anyway that is not my main story here, what I want to share with you it's about Corporate Travel Bazaar 2 which is held on wednesday 27 July @ Empire Hotel, Subang. I have been invited by Tourism Selangor to witness the event and as a first timer of course I am so eager and excited to know what is it special about CTB and yet I never attend any corporate travel before. I used to attend and  get involved with MATTA FAIR, Luxury Travel and others.

Now let me share you a little bit about this event, Corporate Travel Bazaar 2 is organized by Tourism Malaysia. This is the second times Tourism Malaysia organizing CTB, it first took place in 2009 where it received overwhelming response , raking in RM1.4 million in sales. Tourism Malaysia decided to bring back this event in line with their effort to promote more domestic tourism, which recorded 27.53 million domestic hotel guests in 2010. So this time round Tourism Malaysia believe can achieve the sales target of RM1.7 million with 120 participants taking part to encourage the private and public sectors to give priority to local venues and destinations when organising business tourism events, incentive travels and even family day programmes.

The Corporate Travel Bazaar 2 can creates an opportunity for participating tour operator and travel service provides to showcase a lot of attractive bargains and good deals especially to corporate clients and as well as public. If you are looking for meeting and incentive travel packages, team building activities or reservation and ticketing services , then this is the correct platform to deal with. This event offers participants and clients ample networking opportunities and helping them to expand their business.

And not to forget to mention big thanks to all the sponsor's Empire Hotel Subang, Perbadanan Putrajaya, Travel 4 locals and Santai magazine as well as PS Tech to make the event succeed. Again thank you so much to Tourism Selangor for the invitation and looking forward to see their next event in the future.

In expressing their appreciation and thanks to all media friends, Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is organized a special 'RAMADAN PREVIEW on last Wednesday at Broadway Lounge & Big Apple Restaurant, Level 14 Berjaya Times Square Hotel that showcases their exclusive range of extensive cuisines spread, as well as welcoming 'Balik Kampung' feel.

Come sunset, wonderful aromas reminiscent of home emanate from the Big Apple Restaurant in Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, beckoning hungry tummies with entrancing whiffs. The Ramadan Balik Kampung Buffet, available daily throughout the holy month, serves up a sumptuous spread of traditional delicacies and classic flavours, making it an ideal choice for buka puasa with family and friends. With the 14th-floor-city-viewed restaurant decked out in festive embellishment, the Hari Raya spirit is definitely in the air. Heightening the atmosphere, a gong-beating ceremony is held every evening to signal that it's time to break fast.

"In the good old days, balik kampung is always associated with good food from Mom's kitchen, beautiful childhood memories, and not forgetting - embracing the simplicity of life. Here at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur we create that mood in our restaurant with traditional rumah kampung decor, complete with duduk bersila concept as one of the options for our guests when they dine with us," said Abel Nelson Nang, Corporate Director of Marketing & Communications - Berjaya Hotels & Resorts.

The hotel's Chef de Cuisine - Chef Mazlee Abdul Rahman said, the buffet line up offers great variety, featuring over 100 items that are rotated on a daily basis, ensuring that regulars can look forward to something different each time. While the traditional elements is retained, Chef Mazlee and his team of culinary brigade have also sprinkled a touch of creativity on several time-honoured recipes. Daging Masak Gulai, Telur Itik Masak Lemak, Kambing Bakar Percik, Gulai Ikan Talang & Nenas, Kari Ayam Mamak and Udang Masak Ros are some must-try traditional Malay dishes.

Another speciality, the Roast Lamb Kuzi on Briyani Rice, is one that draws much attention. Sitting atop a mound of flavourful briyani rice, the chunk of lamb is only carved up into succulent slices at the last minute, ensuring its juices remain inside. Other dishes to look out for include the Kari Burung Unta & Kentang, Ayam Goreng Icikabin, Ekor Masak Asam Pedas, Pucuk Manis & Keledek, Kepah Masak Kunyit, Kambing Vindaloo, Ketam Goreng Cili and Gulai Sotong Timur. Those with an eye on their health can toss up their own Ulam-Ulam Kampung, or pick from a variety of ready-made salads on offer. The variety of fish crackers and papadoms make for good snacking too. Otherwise, make a beeline for the action stations where you'll find char-grilled cuts of Ikan Panggang, or simply make your own plate of Pasembur.
No buka puasa buffet is complete without dates, and here, there's a whole basketful of them.

Should one have room for deserts, a selection of Malay Kuih and puddings make for a sweet ending. Alternatively, have a bowl of refreshing Ais Kacang or Cendol. Both kids and adults will also find the ice cream - served in individual bowls, much to their liking. A variety of toppings and sauces are available, so just lather on whichever strikes your fancy. There will also be live Keroncong entertainment available daily (except Tuesday) ; not only that - diners may also perform Solat Maghrib and Isyak without having to leave the hotel as two of the function rooms located on the same floor have been assigned as Surau throughout the month of Ramadan.

Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur's Ramadan Balik Kampung Buffet at Big Apple Restaurant is available daily from 6.30pm to 10.30pm until 29 August 2011. It is priced at RM78.00 ++ for adults, and RM42.00++ for children.
