Qguides Foodies "Makan" Session

>> Thursday, February 19, 2009

Date: 19 February 2009, Thursday
Venue: Visitor's Lounge, Carlsbery Brewery, Shah Alam
Occasion: Food Bloggers' "Makan" Session by TheQguides.com & Carlsberg
Attendees: Food bloggers, TheQguides.com team & management of Carlsberg Marketing Sdn. Bhd.

I was pretty excited when I received a call from TheQguides.com to attend this event! It's my 1st time attending a foodies' gathering! I couldn't contain the joy, so I shared the news with Anne, my family, & friends :)

After work, I left for Shah Alam, where the gathering was held. When I arrived, there were quite a number of TheQguides.com team members, Integricity guys, & some foodies as well...mm...I was somewhat excited to be there, yet as usual, I'm not extremely good with crowds, thus I'll kinda shy away from people.


I met & chat with a couple of foodies before we had a simple buffet dinner :) I didn't manage to take any photos of the food though *sigh* There was free-flow of beer (we were at Carlsberg after all!), & the environment of the lounge was just cosy :) Most of the foodies knew each other already & were chatting away happily...I felt a 'lil outa place; I feel unexposed to the foodies' world & my character didn't really help, I guess...hahaha....




After dinner, we viewed a video clip by Carlsberg, before Jek Tan, the co-founder of TheQguides.com, gave a presentation to introduce us to the TheQguides.com project & his passionate & fun team. I didn't really know what this event is all about as it wasn't very clear to me when Lisa called to invite me for the event. It was only during the presentation that the "scales were removed from my eyes".

Objectives of the get-together:

  • Introduce the TheQguides.com project, team & objectives to all attendees
  • Identify win-wn opportunities for food bloggers, working together with TheQguides.com
  • Develop meaningful working relationships with food bloggers
  • Gauge interest levels in the TheQguides.com
  • Have fun!

After the presentation, there was a short session of Q & A before the goodie bags were given out, & the photo-taking session was held. We were free to mingle, socialize, & have more beer generously provided by Carlsberg :) I didn't really stay back though. I was quite tired & had to drive back to Cyberjaya again, which is like another 45minutes drive *wergh*




It was indeed a very different weekday night for me. I rarely attend events such as these on weekdays...in fact, I rarely go out of Cyberjaya during weekdays! Sounds like a boring life, eh? If events & activities out of the house are the only exciting things, then my exciting-life will only begin during weekends! *bleagh*

Anyways, so what is this TheQguides.com all about? Here are some info to fill you in on what TheQguides.com has to offer ;)
  • A website on food or more specifically restaurant booking portal
  • Make table reservations online with ease
  • Get rewarded for dining out (by just using the portal to book/make a reservation!)
  • Locate food and restaurants effortlessly
  • Access to exclusive discounts & promotions
  • Feature articles and exclusive interviews; just a click away
  • It's truly INTERACTIVE! Users have the power to review restaurants, submit comments, police and rank content.
Young minds such as this team shall move Malaysia forward into a more futuristic world! :D
