LG Home Chef Championship Results

Remember the LG Home Chef Championship I posted not too long ago? Well, the cook-off was held at Giant Hypermarket’s USJ outlet last week and we got ourselves a winner. 28 year old Muhammad Iskandar bin Ishak’s self-made dish of Greens Stuffed Chicken Breast impressed me and the other judges to beat stiff competition from the other four finalists and he will be representing LG Malaysia at the final round in Cape Town, South Africa.

LG-Home-Chef-Winner

The competition which emphasized on the usage of the LG Charcoal Lighting Heater™ Microwave Oven, attracted over 40 online recipe submissions. After a careful selection process only five were chosen for the cook-out. Prior to the cook-out the contestants were given a day to practise and familiarize themselves with the microwave oven to perfect their creations.

The KEE Resort & Spa @ Patong, Phuket

Located directly adjacent to the rowdy and happening Bangla Road, The KEE Resort & Spa is a trendy hotel at Patong that offers a clean and modern experience to couple and family travellers alike. The hotel’s design is influenced by a Sino-Portugese architecture which is unique in Thailand but familiar to us, as it bears resemblance to the early Malaccan and Penang settlements.

Standard-Pool-View-Room

The room type we got was the Deluxe Pool View. With a size of 40 sqm, it has the perfect space to accommodate two adults comfortably. Most of the amenities in the room are pretty standard and satisfies the expectations of a medium range hotel. The room’s bright and vibrant colours have a cheerful vibe that perks your mood.

Central-Lighting-Control

Next to the bed is a central digital panel that controls all the lightings in the room.

Internet-TV

But what’s really interesting to me is the smart tv which could be used to enjoy satelite tv, movies on demand, music and get connected to the Internet. A set of wireless keyboard and mouse is provided as the navigation tool so you could actually browse the web from the comfort of the bed. If you prefer your own devices the complimentary WiFi’s connection is reliable and the speed is quite fast too.
