Tujo Refreshed


Headed over to Tujo Bar-sserie & Grill recently for their relaunch party that debuted a new and refreshed F&B establishment in the heart of KL! Tujo Bar-sserie & Grill first opened its doors in 2014 (taking over from sevenatenine which was also under the SOUL Society Group) and is located on the ground floor of the Ascott Residences in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and a stones throw away from KLCC. TUJO, with its new tagline of Eat, Drink & Play, is part of the SOUL Society Group which owns other restaurant brands such as SOULed OUT, WIP and Hubba,

Along with the rejuvenated atmosphere comes new creations from the kitchen and bar. A new selection of premium cuts are now available From The Grill, such as the Tomahawk, a 1.3kg Sanchoku Wagyu from Australia. Although the wait time for the dish is an hour, you’re in for a treat as it is topped with Burnt Raclette, which is another new item on the menu. Other meats are also available From The Grill like chicken, lamb, seafood with customised rubs and marinades. Other new dishes worth a mention are the Lemon Pepper Halibut and Black Miso Haddock, while the rest of the food menu comprises of a fine selection of main courses, pastas, pizzas, salads, soups and light bites.

There’s a range of new cocktails, dubbed Hometown Hooch! With a wealth of ingredients available in Malaysia, Tujo believes that local ingredients stand up to pricier imported ones, and as such their mixologists have concocted 16 new “Malaysiana” drinks with an alcoholic twist. Some are true boozy interpretations of Malaysian favs like the Hang Li Mau which sees the addition of rum to a meld of calamansi, lime juice and gula melaka, while others like the ABC (Alcoholic Batu Campur) includes the addition of tequila and Irish cream liqueur. The Mystic Manggis Iced Lolly was quite an interesting treat, while the Boozy Blues which has the surprising addition of coconut flakes adding some texture to the cocktail.

There’s also a new Oyster Bar where you choose from fine Irish, Dutch or French oysters.

Lovely roast beef!

Which we topped with melted Raclette

We also got to sample some of TUJO’s new dishes

Not forgetting their new cocktails!

This was my favourite as it contained two (2) of my favourite ingredients – Milo and whisky!


“The glass enclosure that cocoons Tujo inspired the concept of a Tropical Glasshouse. Bringing in some tropical foliage conveys an air of calm which is a welcome sight, especially when surrounded by so many skyscrapers.” explains Michele Kwok, Tujo’s First Lady. “We had tons of fun tasting these new cocktails. And we are proud of our mixologists for thinking out of the box and coming up with something very creative. These are products that will bade well with our local crowd and it will interest visitors from around the world too! My personal favourite? The Mat Kool! We’ve all had it at wedding dinners before, but what we have added to it…you have to taste it to believe it!”.

Shell Malaysia’s ‘Drive On’ Campaign Launch


Headed over to Nexus, Bangsar South on 12 October 2017 for the launch of Shell Helix Ultra fully synthetic motor oil’s new ‘Drive On’ global brand campaign that hopes to highlight the importance of celebrating why people drive and the emotions that they can evoke through a series of stunning films.

Shell hopes that the Shell Helix Ultra ‘Drive On’ campaign will rally and inspire both drivers and workshop owners to overcome daily challenges and keep their respective passions for driving and growing their business alive.

“It is difficult for drivers to truly understand the importance of motor oils, and even more difficult for workshops to get drivers to care as well. With the Shell Helix Ultra ‘Drive On’ campaign, we are showing drivers in Malaysia just how our fully synthetic motor oil enables their passion for driving. Whether they drive for the roar of the engine, or for the freedom of the open road, Shell Helix Ultra is designed to protect car engines from the barriers that can hinder performance so that drivers can have the most enjoyable journey possible,” said Troy Chapman, Shell Lubricants Executive Director – Southeast Asia & Oceania.

He added, “With Shell Helix Ultra, which is made from natural gas, drivers have the assurance that every oil change comes with cutting-edge technology that delivers unmatched protection for the ultimate engine performance.  For our trade partners, it is the confidence in knowing that they are able to offer their customers the best lubricant products in the market and we have their backs covered at all times.  Best of all, everyone who chooses Shell Helix enjoys instant benefits and rewards.”

At the core of the campaign is an integrated consumer and trade loyalty programme called Shell Advantage and Rewards (SHARE), and Malaysia is the first market in the world to launch SHARE.

Motorists who purchase either a Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology, High Mileage, HX7 or HX5, just need to complete a simple online registration at to gain access to a world of rewards with SHARE.  These include a storewide Lazada voucher for first time sign-up with purchase, a buy-3-free-1 offer for purchases of Shell Helix Ultra, oil change reminders and seasonal promotions.

Those with cars below eight years old and 150,000 km on the odometer also qualify for the free Shell Helix Engine Warranty (SHEW) when they service their cars with Shell Helix Ultra, High Mileage or HX7.  The unique, first-in-the-market engine warranty is now part of the SHARE programme.

To support the programme, Shell has developed a user-friendly SHARE mobile app for trade partners to help them better engage and retain customers and manage their inventories. The app also enables both workshop owners and mechanics to collect points with every participating Shell Helix product that they sell to consumers and redeem attractive prizes.

In conjunction with the launch of the campaign, the Shell Helix ‘Drive On’ Roadshow will be held at selected locations nationwide from 13 October to 24 December 2017, with attractive prizes to be won.  Twenty five lucky winners will also be taking home Ferrari merchandise in the Shell Helix #IDriveFor social media contest with details at

As Malaysia is one of Shell’s most important markets in Asia, local consumers have had the privilege of enjoying numerous firsts from Shell Helix. In 2014, Shell Helix was the first (and still is the only) brand to introduce motor oils with an ultra-clean base oil made from natural gas using Shell’s proprietary PurePlus Technology that cleanses the engine from inside out.

In 2016, Shell Helix was the first motor oil brand to offer the unprecedented Shell Helix Engine Warranty or S.H.E.W. This year, Shell Helix partnered Waze in an accident-prone spots alert campaign during the Ramadan and Aidilfitri period, which was a first in Asia. Malaysia also became the first market to roll out the Shell Malaysia Official Online Store on Lazada Malaysia and made genuine, officially-sourced Shell Helix motor oils accessible to consumers nationwide via the online marketplace.
