1Utama Wonder Food Adventure!

What to eat ahh?

Don't know la.
Anything la.

You decide,
I follow only.

The typical lazy Malaysian way of thinking 
when it comes to selecting food eateries  
(or maybe it's just me =P)

I am sure we all have experienced this dilemma
when we don't know where to eat.

Fear not!

1Utama Food Street is the solution to all your food dilemmas

They have a wide variety of food that will leave you salivating and craving for more=D

 Did you know that 1Utama is the 4th BIGGEST mall in the WORLD!!!

Malaysia not bad right...

Since it is one of the biggest mall in the world, 
of course they have tons of eateries for you to choose from.

On the 4th-24th of November was the 1Utama Wonder Food event,
where 1Utama gave many rewards and activities to all their ONECARD users.

People that did not have the ONECARD still got to enjoy
all the yummy food selection and activities available
but by being a 1Utama loyalty card holder you get so much more privileges.  

So, in conjunction with the Wonder Food event,
1Utama collaborated with The Butterfly Project,
to bring 50 of us bloggers to sample the amazing food selection at
1Utama's Food Street!
