West Wine Chinese Eat at Imperial Garden Restaurant, Tai Thong

Months back I have attended a special wine-pairing event namely ‘West Wine, East Eat’ at Imperial Garden Restaurant organised by Tai Thong Group.

We were told that this round the group executive chef Lee Wee Hong came out with a different approach in crafting the menu. Instead of selecting the right wine to go with each dish, he designed the dishes in each course to match the chosen wines.

Get ready to go through the six-course dinner with the pairing wine with me =]

The concert is happening on 29th October at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil. So let’s join the night for true Malaysian-styled comedy and humour to channel away the much disparity and tragedy that has befallen Malaysia this year.

Before that, let’s take a sip of the freshly brewed hot mocha made by the barista in Espresso Lab.

Apart from being a stand up comedian, Harith Iskander also hosted TV talk shows, acted in theatre, movies and TV serials, and performed in and co-directed musicals. He also acted in Hollywood films, Anna and the King in 1999. Harith have been making audiences laugh in Malaysia and overseas for 20 years.

 photo 6_zps67b4c58f.jpg

Jason Leong, a doctor but now spends most of his time tickling funny bones instead as a stand-up comedian. Harith believed that Jason is one of the best comedians in Malaysia, he will be doing the opening for the night with his unique brand of satire and political incorrectness upon the unsuspecting public.

There will be a special guest for the night too. Introducing Papa CJ – one of India’s most influential comedians.

 photo 7_zpsc8e3f61f.jpg

Frankly I have never watch any stand up comedy, at the press conference Harith has cracked some jokes and filled the cafe with laughters. Harith will be sharing a mixture of daily observations about what makes Malaysia ‘tick’ told in the indomitable and distinctive Harith Iskander style.

 photo 8_zpsae341008.jpg

To make the show even more meaningful, percentage of profits from ticket sales will be channelled to OrphanCARE, a charitable NGO that strives to place abandoned children in homes with loving families.

As a lead up to this concert Harith is presently on his first International Tour covering six countries – Singapore, Indonesia, India, Australia, Hong Kong and South Korea – aptly titled “The Godfather of Malaysian Comedy International Tour 2014”. In each of these countries Harith has successfully and proudly flown the Malaysian flag in front of a truly international audience. He is now ready to bring that back home in front of his own people.
