Dinner In The Sky is a unique dining experience that uses a crane to hoist diners, table and waiting staff 150 feet off into the air, giving them an amazing bird’s eye view whilst enjoying an exquisite culinary feast. To complete this experience, diners can expect to not just marvel at the view but take their gastronomical journey to a whole different level with a special-made Italian menu served by Chef Danielle Rossetto from Ferdinand’s, which is listed as one of Malaysia’s best restaurants by Malaysia Tatler.

Brought to you by TwoSpicy Entertainment, Dinner In The Sky is currently only available in Malaysia in the South East Asian region. Already a well-known brand of entertainment, this innovative Belgian-based experience has hosted more than 5,000 dinner events in 40 cities around the world. Iconic locations have included the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Marina of Dubai, Villa Borghese in Rome, Athens, Copacabana Beach, and Cape Town. Forbes magazine has called it as one of the world’s TOP TEN most unusual restaurants.

Arvin Randahwa, CEO of TwoSpicy Entertainment, the company that owns the Dinner In The Sky Malaysia license exclusively in Malaysia said “We are aware that most of the major events and experiences that come into our country are targeted towards West Malaysia. However, Sabah is just so beautiful and the people here are lovely. We, therefore, wanted to bring this ‘gift’ to Sabahans and the many tourists that visit it. This is your chance to experience this world class product in your backyard and treat your loved ones, friends or corporate members for an unforgettable experience.”

YB Datuk Joniston Bangkuai, Chairman of Sabah Tourism Board said “This is definitely one of a kind dining experience that provides opportunities to both locals and visitors in Kota Kinabalu a totally different view of KK, which is from the sky! It is timely that we are able to promote new products for our visitors to experience while they are here in Kota Kinabalu.”

KOTA KINABALU, 5 AUGUST 2017 – Proving once again why they are the reigning leaders in the dairy foodservice segment, Anchor Food Professionals has launched an exciting campaign with their partners, and this time with a creation that Malaysians can’t resist – Pizza!

Celebrating pizza in all its shapes and sizes, the new campaign called “PizzArt” takes the enjoyment of pizza a notch up into an art form. Whether you’re a hard-core foodie or a discerning gourmand, these pizzas will deliver.

Together with 24 outlets in Peninsula and East Malaysia, Anchor Food Professionals has introduced artisanal pizzas that are taking the world by storm. Masterpieces such as Flower Pizzas, Pizza Bombs, Adjaruli Khachapuri, Mini Muffin Pizzas and Pot Pie Pizzas are waiting to be devoured at participating restaurants from May to mid-November 2017.

Pot Pie Pizzas the CHUBs Grill way

The artisanal pizzas were conceptualized and created by the Anchor Food Professionals’ Hot Cooking Chefs as a way to help their partners create more excitement and variety in what they offer to their customers.

The pizzas can only be made by kitchen crew with advanced culinary skills, and in restaurants with pizza ovens. Chefs and assistants from participating restaurants were trained in the ways of a skilled pizzaiolo by Anchor Food Professional in preparation for the launch of the campaign. Through workshops they were taught specialized skills to create unusual pizzas such as the avant-garde Pizza Flower.

The recipes call for only the finest ingredients such as Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Cheese, Anchor Unsalted Butter, Anchor Colby Cheese, Anchor Cheddar Cheese, and Mainland Edam Cheese. In Malaysia, the Anchor brand is already a leader in the dairy segment. When you dine in a restaurant, a hotel, or a quick service restaurant (QSR), chances are you are already having a taste of Fonterra’s dairy products through Anchor.

Speaking at the unveiling of the PizzArt campaign in Kota Kinabalu, Ms Linda Tan, Director of Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia said that the new campaign will strike a chord with pizza-loving Malaysians.

“Malaysians are increasingly leading busier lifestyles and are grabbing food on the go or dining out. Our insights show us that Malaysians generally love pizzas. We wanted to excite them further by taking the enjoyment of pizza a level up by introducing extraordinary, gourmet pizzas that are taking the world by storm. If you love pizzas, then this is a must try,” Ms Tan said.

Delicious Khachapuri rich in cheese

She added that this is an example of innovative campaigns that Anchor Food Professionals has launched with their partners such as the highly successful Say Cheese Campaign which introduced Japanese-inspired cheese based desserts, and the second wave which introduced sweet breads infused with creams and cheese. The more recent French-inspired Travel Cakes (butter loaf cakes) made available at participating bakeries ended on a sweet note as well.

“We are continuously finding ways to help our partners stay ahead of the curve by introducing global trends and unique creations to their consumers using only the best dairy by Anchor. By drawing on our New Zealand based research and expertise, we are able to help them achieve a competitive edge,” she added.

With the new launch of PizzArt, Anchor Food Professional hopes to trail blaze a ‘new age’ of pizzas in Malaysia. Pizza bombs which made an appearance in the international food scene is an explosion of flavour and cheesiness in a ball of chewy dough with a crispy crust. Adjaruli Khachapuri is a boat shaped pizza filled with hot cheese and oozing egg and is a Georgian invention, all the rage in food capitals of the world. Muffin pizzas are bite-sized versions of delicious pizza and perfect for breakfast and as snacks and pot pie pizzas are as hearty and satisfying as they sound with pizza dough used as a pie crust with all the flavours and stringy cheesiness of a pizza steaming inside.

Consumers can also look forward to participating in some fun contests on Anchor’s Facebook @AnchorDairyMalaysia in the month of July to win exciting prizes. 


The artisanal pizzas will be available at The Chubs Grill and Mad Ben Café in Sabah, Chillax Café & Bistro, Coup De Grill and Bistecca & Bistro in Sarawak, Movida and U Pizzeria in Klang Valley, Movida and U Pizzeria in Perak, US Pizza and Lunarich in Penang, Movida in Melaka and Johor and Ejohng Concept in Johor, from May to mid-November 2017.

Tiada Lagi Frasa PM Saya Jika Berminat – KPDNKK

Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan (KPDNKK) dalam satu kenyataan hari ini memberi amaran kepada peniaga atas talian dan mana-mana web perniagaan supaya memaparkan harga barangan yang dijual dan maklumat produk dengan jelas seperti apa yang pengguna ingin tahu, lapor NST.

Datuk Mohd Roslan Mahayudin, berkata tindakan ini adalah bagi melindungi hak pengguna Selain undang-undang sedia ada memaksa untuk peniaga meletakkan harga dan maklumat barangan sebelum transaksi dilakukan.

Penguatkuasa KPDNKK akan memburu mereka yang mengiklankan produk di atas talian tetapi tidak meletakkan tanda harga barang dijual samaada sengaja atau tidak.

Penggunaan frasa “PM saya, sis”, “Done PM” adalah antara kata kunci yang membuatkan penguatkuasa dapat mengesan kepada peniaga gagal memaparkan tanda harga.

Peniaga atas talian kini akan diperhatikan sama seperti yang dilakukan kepada peniaga konvesional yang lain dan hukuman akan dikenakan jika didapati melakukan kesalahan.

Peniaga perlu mengikut Akta Perlindungan Pengguna 1999 dengan perlu memaparkan maklumat seperti berikut:
  • Harga perlu dibayar
  • Nama penjual atau syarikat
  • Nombor Pendaftaran Perniagaan
  • Maklumat untuk dihubungi seperti nombor telefon atau alamat atau emel
  • Keterangan produk
  • Kaedah pembayaran
  • Terma dan syarat
  • Anggaran masa penghantaran

Individu yang gagal mematuhi lapan ketetapan yang disenaraikan oleh kementerian ini .

“Kami menguatkuasakan undang-undang ini setelah sekian lama memberi kelonggaran kepada peniaga untuk menyesuaikan diri”

“Kami mahu pengguna dilindungi dengan lebih baik dan hak mereka mesti dilindungi dan mereka mesti dapat membuat keputusan pembelian selepas mendapat segala dengan maklumat yang dipaparkan termasuk caj tersembunyi.”

“Jadi, jika seseorang menjual kucing, sebagai contoh, dia mesti memaparkan harga yang mahu dijual dan tidak lagi berkata PM jika berminat.”

“Kami tidak mempunyai masalah dengan peniaga e-dagang yang lain seperti Zalora atau Lazada kerana mereka masih patuh kepada undang-undang yang ditetapkan.” kata Roslan.

Beliau juga menyatakan sudah lama masa diberikan, sekarang semua peniaga atas talian perlu memaparkan tanda harga.
