KUALA LUMPUR: If you are looking for a luxury escape this Christmas, you might want to take part in a contest organised by Originalo, the brainchild of the daughter of the Sultan of Selangor, Tengku Datin Paduka Setia Zatashah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, and her French husband Aubry Rahim Mennesson.
“Whether we are Muslim, Christian, Hindu or Buddhist, we should all share in this Christmas spirit at the end of the year. This is why we are offering three lucky winners out there fabulous Originalo gifts this Christmas. The lucky winners will be revealed on Dec 20.”

“Next, search for Originalo on Facebook, choose to ‘like’ it and complete the following sentence ‘I want an Originalo giftbox because…’ and post it as a comment on your Facebook Wall,” said Tengku Zatashah.
Originalo positions itself as the ‘next generation lifestyle gifts’ with prices ranging from RM180 to RM1,800.

It currently has over 100 quality hotels and spa partners in seven gift boxes wrapped under the themes of Spa, Escape and Luxury.
In conjunction with the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) who happened to be celebrating its 10th anniversary, we were invited by Dato’ Steve Day and Datin Su (organizers of MIGF) to a wonderful evening dinner to taste the sumptuous menu prepared by Chef Nancy Kenchala at The Restaurant of The Club at The Saujana, member of The Leading Hotels of the World and partner* to ORIGINALO™ Ultimate Gift Experience!
I was not prepared for how amazing the food and evening was going to turn out!
So don’t miss this menu as MIGF ends 31st October!
