[launch event] Latest additions from Dell + Alienware 20th Anniversary

Alienware celebrated its 20th anniversary as a leading pioneer in high-performance PC gaming systems, over a launch event which was held at Club Millian, St. James Power Station. I was glad to be part of the birth of this new generation of products by Alienware and Dell. Alienware improves experiences for gamers with the introduction of its first ever VR-ready notebooks.

The new Alienware 17 is the ultimate gaming notebook with an emphasis on screen size, gaming performance and overall immersion. With eye-tracking technology, it allows gamers to fine tune their skills with a new Overwolf APP that can replay one's gaze. Gamers can now track where they were last looking at during gameplay! Gamers can now learn from their mistakes and be will be sure to focus their attention on the best opportunities to crush the competition.
The Tobii Camera is the newest added feature in Alienware 17, and it is used to enhance presence detection. It locks your system when you walk away, thus this unique feature help to optimise power, performance, and can also improve security.

The Alienware 15 is well-balanced device to provide a superior gaming performance with portability. The new mid-size laptop fits perfectly well for gamers who want the best of both worlds.

The Alienware Graphics Amplifier is your quickest ticket to 4K gaming and beyond!

Dell also introduced their new XPS and Inspiron laptops, Inspiron 2-in-1, and XPS Tower at the launch event too.

The latest devices from Dell delivers some of the best visual experiences with InfinityEdge screens and vibrant graphics. Writing the first chapter of your future novel or binge-watching your favorite TV programmes with your friends has never been more fun! 

XPS 13 is the World’s Smallest 13-inch Laptop which was designed and built for premium performance, mobility and visual fidelity, with the added bonus of Dell's Ultimate Viewing Experience. I love the virtually borderless InfinityEdge display, which offers even more power, and a better battery life.

The Inspiron 13-inch 5000 2-in-1 offers a sleek design and a brilliant wide-angle FHD resolution display. The 2-in-1's compact size and light weight make it ideal for everyday travel. It is perfect for multi-taskers who regularly switch between open applications.

I was glad that we got to hands-on and try out the latest series by Alienware. Everybody knows that it is one of the most powerful gaming systems in the universe and its iconic design make it an ultimate winner inside out!

Thanks so much for the invite, and I had a lovely night-out! It was fun trying out the devices during the event.

This brings me to the food tasting with The Entertainer at Sarnies, a pumping little cafe which is located at the bustling CBD, along Telok Ayer Street.

I am a slider lover, and we tried out the vegan sliders at Sarnies.

The Grilled Haloumi with Onion Jam & Roasted Cherry Tomatoes tasted fabulous. I love the bite size buttery bun, as it was the perfect size to my liking.
Another appetiser served was Pulled Pork Taco with Chilli, Coriander, Lime & Red Cabbage. The pulled pork was well seasoned and the tender and juicy pulled pork tasted amazing!

I had Spicy Buffalo Wings, and they were pretty meaty. When the wings arrived on our table, they looked and smelled good. Each wing had just the right amount of sauce coating, and it tasted good.

We moved forward to our main course, Southern Indian Style Hand Cut Pappardelle with Prawns, Coconut Milk, Curry leaves. The classical creamy sauce pasta tasted well with the authentic aromatic curry leaves. I love how this dish is cooked using, the coconut milk instead of heavy cream and the whole dish went perfectly well with Chef Zak's cooking method.

I was glad to taste the Texas Style Burger with Overnight Smoked Brisket, white Slaw, Dijon, Gherkins, BBQ Sauce & Hand Cut Wedges, and the BBQ sauce gives the smoke meat patty a wonderful and authentic Texan flavour.

\We rounded up our session with yummy Churros with Salted Caramel & Chocolate Sauce. You will never go wrong with these Spanish treats which are made from a dough similar to choux pastry and cooked in the same way as a doughout. It tasted heavenly good with the dipper sauce.
Thanks Sarnies and The Entertainer App for the lovely invite!

Puvay - 100% natural fruit-purée based Collagen Drinks

I was introduced to Puvay's newly formulated range of 100% natural fruit-purée based Collagen Drinks, which gives the body a nutritional boost while replenishing the collagen we lose as we age.
Puvay's Collagen Drink is more than a normal juice or beauty drink as I personally feel that it is a beverage with a wholesome taste.
I was invited to the media launch of Puvay Collagen Drinks which was held at Yhingthai Palace Restaurant. It was an informative session as it allowed me to gain a better knowledge of Puvay as well as on other conventional brands of collagen drinks.

Each Puvay Collagen Drink contains 8000mg of 'Korean Marine Collagen Peptides' and these molecules are much smaller in size . It helps the body to absorb the benefits better and faster.

During these recent years, I have tried other brands of collagen drinks, but they were either too sweet or too thick in their texture. I am glad that Puvay offers a well-balanced taste and texture for my indulgence. Puvay creates a 100% natural fruit-juice beverage with high dosage of Korean Marine Collagen Peptides, and it is also low in calories too. It is definitely a guilt-free beauty drink.
During the event, there was an interesting segment which was loved by every blogger and that was to create our unique mocktail creations. I created my very own creation with Berry Husky, shaved ice, fresh fruits/berries, flaxseed and nuts. I was surprised to know that we can customise it as a fruit dessert by adding ice shavings and fresh fruits, apart from drinking it straight from the bottle!

There are 4 flavors to choose from (L-R) Peach Perfect, Mango Sunshine, Berry Husky and Passion Fruit Spring. I had a lovely afternoon with all the lovely people at the Puvay event, and thanks so much for having me at this wonderful event!

You can get your hands on these collagen bottled drinks filled with goodness at, which retails at SGD7/bottle or enjoy their current promotion at 4 bottles for SGD20!

[Day 04] The Twelve Apostes + Great Ocean Road

For the next instalment of my travel diary in Melbourne, I will be writing about the magical Great Ocean Road! Most people know this scenic route for the 'Twelve Apostles' attraction, but did you know that the entire Ocean road is the world's largest war memorial? It was built as a tribute to the soldiers of Australia who lost their lives in the first world war.
We set off pretty early in the morning, after finishing our sumptuous home-cooked brekkie which was prepared by my Baby!
We had a wonderful time experiencing one of the world's scenic coastal drives. The rainforests, seaside towns, and general farmland of the country side was very beautiful. I would even dare to say that it was almost, if not, equal to the beauty of the West Coast/Big Sur in America.  

Just like Big Sur, the 'Twelve Apostles' was the crown jewel of the Ocean Road Drive, and it is about 3.5 to 4 hours drive to from Melbourne. The Twelve Apostles are a collection of limestones stacked off the shore of Port Campbell National Park, and we were very glad to witness the magnificent scenery and natural beauty of it all.

We stopped at various intervals while driving, as there were plenty of spots for photography of the beautiful scenery. Although it is a fairly long drive, I fully recommend visiting it as the long drive is really worth it! 



We climbed and walked just to catch a glimpse of the beautiful scenery. Upon seeing the amazing scenery, the long drive is totally worth it! The sounds of the waves was so calming and soothing. The lovely breeze and beautiful ocean view were splendid!



After we bid goodbye to the breath-taking 12 Apostles, we drove to Port Campbell for lunch. We settled at an eatery place named Waves Cafe.Bar.Restaurant. 

After lunch, we explored the quaint town of Port Campbell. 

On our way back to Melbourne, we dropped by the seaside town of Apollo Bay for more photo-taking! 

It was an unforgettable experience driving down the Great Ocean Road to The Twelve Apostles. 

After reaching Melbourne, we ended our day at Nara Thai, a Thai restaurant located opposite our apartment. Normally, I do not have high expectations when it comes to Asian food in western countries, but this eatery place proved me wrong. The Thai food that was served was very authentic and asted awesome! 

Thanks for reading! I hope you can continue to look out for my space for my next Melbourne post!
