I expected January to pass quickly due to Chinese New Year being at the end of the moment and pass quickly it did! However I did manage to do three (3) Chinese New Year menu reviews at some of the top five (5) star hotels in the country as well as some four (4) Valentine’s Day reviews including one really really premium dinner at BABE – Japas Fun Dining in Damansara Heights.
For the third year running I’ve also compiled a list of Valentine’s Day restaurant dinner sets/ promos for restaurants in the Klang Valley, Penang and beyond. To those of you who celebrate Chinese New Year, here’s wishing you Gong Xi Fa Cai!
If you’ve been following my exploits over the past year, you’d probably know that I attend Glenlivet Guardians events on a regular basis. The final one for 2016 was titled “Toast & Smoke” and was held at Hacha Mecha at TREC Kuala Lumpur on 29 December 2016.

In December, the guys from Panasonic Malaysia passed me their latest Lumix G Camera DMC-G85K to play with. The G85K is designed for outdoor shooting in mind, with a weather-sealed splash/dustproof compact body and kit lens as well as Dual Image Stabiliser for crisper, clearer images in difficult or fast-moving environments. The 5-Axis Dual I.S.2 (Image Stabiliser) combines body and lens stabilisation to gain more powerful handshake correction and compensates shots up to 5 F-Stops. The 5-axis stabilisation works in both wide and telephoto photography and motion picture recording including 4K Video.
With the AV and DI world moving towards 4K content, it’s no surprise that the Lumix G85K is equipped with a 4K PHOTO feature that allows users to capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence (shot at 30fps) in camera, and saving it as an individual high-res image. For still photography, the G85’s 16-megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor with no low pass filter helps users capture sharper images with more detail as you can see from my photos below.
