So what's the treat you ask? Tiger Beer brought in a Michelin Starred Chef. Hawker Chan. One of the first hawker stand operator that won a pretigious Michelin Star. For his Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Singapore. As well as Jeff Ramsey, former Executive Chef at the Michelin-starred Mandarin Oriental Tokyo hotel and current owner and chef of progressive modernist restaurant Babe KL

'Down the Rabbit Hole' by Chef Jeff Ramsey, a rather intriguing take on nasi lemak and roti banjir, personally I found this a little too eccentric for my tastebud

There was a Tikam Wall where you could win prizes depending on what combination of numbers you get from the paper on the wall

Some of the nostalgic-esque prizes that could be gotten that night. My personal favorite being Choki-Choki. I used to suck of them all the time during school ;-)

As the night went on, we were served with a special Tiger STREATS inspired Yee Sang! In conjunction with the commencement of Tiger Beer's Chinese New Year 2017 campaign. Instead of the usual ingredients, it was served with dried prawn crackers and satay sauce.

DSC07544
Indeed a night to be remembered, not only were we served with great food but there were also performances by Tiger Jams finalists, Rozella and Son of a Policement to keep the crowd entertained.

Commenting on the event, Tiger Beer Marketing Manager, Jessie Chuah said, “It is an honour to have two renowned chefs as part of our Tiger STREATS campaign and to see food lovers from all walks of life sitting together around the table, making unexpected new connections. Having scrumptious food accompanied by ice cold Tiger brews just adds to the celebration.”

Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Review

DSC06363

Imagine this, your alarm didn't go off this morning because the battery has died and you need to attend a super important meeting. You rush to the toilet and start washing yourself at light speed, however there's one step which you can't skip. The Morning Shave.

It's no doubt that this crucial step is what draws the line between the disheveled hobo look and the clean dapper modern man.

Well case in point, Gillette has recently launched their latest new Mach-3 razors that comes with sharper blades and improved lubrication strip, which promises to help Malaysian men achieve a great shave, and great skin.

DSC06364

I was recently given a Gillette Mach 3 shaving kit to try out, which consists of the Mach 3 Turbo and a shaving cream

DSC06372
The Mach 3 Turbo
Retails at RM18.50 at all leading retailers.

DSC06368
It's triple-bladed razor with advance blade coating technology ensures a very clean shave and at the same time requires less cutting force. Not to mention it's enhanced gel bar that is 30% wider, and contains more "cushioning lubricants" to provide better lubrication and glide.

DSC06366
It's handle is ergonomically designed with elastomer gripped points to provide a secure grip which handles great in wet bathroom conditions (as well as those hangover mornings)

DSC06365
The head of the catridge is mounted on spring fingers. Which move up and down as they automatically adjust to the different levels of shaving pressure and skin variations, helping to increase comfort during shave

DSC06386
Prepping up for the shave, always use a generous amount of shaving cream

Protip : Use both hands for better accuracy to ensure you don't shave your lips

Start with one side of your face so that you can pretend you have a split personality.

DSC06400
Almost done.

DSC06408
The end result, a clean shave without irritation! Which could go south really easily if I chose to use a cheap disposable razor. As you can see there is no redness or any irritation. Just dapper ol' me.

DSC06370
So what did I think of the Mach 3 Turbo? It's a great razor and albeit a little bit pricier than regular disposables. They gave me a really clean and easy shave.  Similarly with my previous experiences with Gillette razors, they usually last a great deal of time. This razor, especially because it is better than an ordinary disposable, even on the 10th shave

Gillette's new Mach 3 series Launch @ PJ Trade Centre

DSC06283
17th August 2016, Gillete launches it's latest Mach 3 series (which consists of three different variation : The Mach 3 Classic, Mach 3 Turbo and Mach 3 Sensitive) and to kick it off, they organized a talk-show style event that's centered around men's grooming regime and their new Mach 3 range.

Do you often have irritated and red skin after your daily shave? This talk-show is catered towards preventing such occurrences and is greatly beneficial for shaving-challenged individuals.

DSC06287

The talk show was hosted by former Miss Malaysia and TV Host Nadia Heng and also featured local actor/celebrity Fahrin Ahmad as the guest of the 'talk show' 

DSC06293
Fahrin Ahmad shares his insight on how important his grooming regime is as well as horror tales of using cheap disposable razors and it's downsides. He mentioned how his director once commented on how disheveled he looked when he used cheap disposable razors that day, which is why with Gillette's Mach 3, he'll always be able to look his best throughout his busy daily schedule.

DSC06295
To show the effectiveness of Gillete's Mach 3 Turbo, Fahrin Ahmad and along with two other audiences members did a live demonstration. By shaving their facial hairs in front of all the audience.

After the shaving demonstration, Nadia and Fahrin played a game called the "Whisper Challenge". Which is kind of like charades except one person will be wearing ear plugs and headphones with blaring music and will be required to guess the word the other party is saying by way of lip reading. Which led to some pretty funny answers.

So what makes Gillete's Mach 3 Turbo stand out from the rest? 

1) Sharper Blades
With a sharper blade, The Mach 3 Turbo requires less cutting force with each shave

2) Advanced blade coating technology
Thin Uniform Telomer Technology (TUT-technology) that provides great strength to the fine blades and reduces the cutting force

3) Enhanced gel bar
With a 30% wider gel bar, The Mach 3 Turbo is able to achieve better skin contact, providing better performance of lubrication and glide

About the Mach 3 Family
The new Mach 3 series comes in 3 variations, the Classic, Sensitive and Turbo
  • When cutting a hair using the three-bladed razor, the razor uses the flexibility of the hair in the follicle and a process called "hysteresis" to provide a closer,longer lasting shave.
  • Each blade is independently mounted on spring fingers. Which moves up and down as they automatically adjusts to the different level of shaving pressure and skin variations, helping increase comfortness of shaving.
  •  It's skin guard is comprised of soft,flexible microfins that gently stretches the skin to present a smoother surface to the blades, which improves skin comfort and reduces irritation
  • The Mach 3 handle connects at the front of the catridge to redirect 50% of the force from the hand away from the blade to increase skin comfort and to ensure the catridge follows the contours of a man's face 
  • The front head pivots, which creates an "open architecture" that makes it easier to clean the catridge head
  • They come with an ergonomic handle with elastomer grip points to provide a secure grip during every shave
  • Comes with a simple single docking system that easily connects the handle to the pivoting razor catridge for optimal skin shaving positioning

Remember guys, shaving is an important ritual of men everywhere and one shouldn't cheap out on their regime by using cheap disposable razors unless you want to risk having irritated skin for the entire day. Gillette's Mach 3 series is definitely something worth investing in if you're still keeping that complimentary hotel shaver.

Gillette's Mach 3 series is available at all leading retailers from the time of writing. Prices are as follows : Mach 3 Classic - RM15.90
Mach 3 Sensitive - RM17.90
Mach 3 Turbo - RM18.50
