Watsons Participates in Taste MIGF 2015 to Reward VIP Members

[Food & Beverage]

MIGF-01

 

For the first time, Watsons Malaysia participated in the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) 2015 at Taste MIGF 2015 on 5 and 6 September 2015. Taste MIGF is a prelude to the month long festival and was held for the first time at Berjaya Times Square Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Watsons participation in MIGF 2015 is an effort to continuously reward its Watsons VIP members with a lifestyle experience that comes with the card privileges. This partnership is also in conjunction to celebrate Watsons VIP Card 5th Anniversary celebration.

At Taste MIGF, Watsons gave away a free health checkup for members which includes blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and visceral fat screening. Watsons VIP members who visited the Watsons VIP Lounge with their card also received a complimentary festival welcome drink and a 10% discount for Taste MIGF Gourmet Dollars.

Additionally Watsons VIP members who purchased RM50.00 worth of Watsons branded products at Watsons stores in the Klang Valley just had to show the receipt at the Watsons booth to receive Gourmet Dollar worth RM50.00 – which they could then use at Taste MIGF to purchase sampling portions of the MIGF menus inside the Theatre of Cuisines.

The participation at MIGF 2015 was a platform for Watsons to showcase Watsons brand products which has been created for more than 20 years by leading experts and researchers from around the world.

Watsons wide and diverse range of products bear the Watsons heritage that guarantees outstanding quality, value and trust. Watsons brand products quality is assured, with products developed based on intensive research, customer feedback and independent testing on products to the highest regulatory standards, backed by stringent quality control processes right through to the store itself.

We also visited the Epicure International Gourmet Village where gourmet food and beverage vendors were selling their products. This pretty girl let us try her teas which she imports in from China.

My friend Liang had apparently become a chef. Last I saw him he was a music artiste. Guess he's a man of many talents!
