At recent soft opening of Nu Sentral retail mall I was invited to attend The showcase of Masterchef All Stars Malaysia where I meet up with our local celebrity chefs. Team Red consist of Celina, Soo Wncci and Imelda while the Team Blue consist of Zamir, Michael Ang and Brian
The Nu Sentral retail mal is centrally located within the Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD. The mall is set to bring urban and fresh retail concept to market. The soft opening came with a ribbon cutting ceremony by the Malaysia Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB).
NU Sentral is an iconic expression that there is always something “Nu” for everyone at the retail mall that is specially designed for those who seek the ultimate urban lifestyle. This reflects the adoption of the concept of transumerism (transit consumerism) that was first coined to describe consumers in transit at airports. The team is now used to describe a wider global trend of consumerism where more buyers are moving on from product to product and experience to experience at a faster pace than eve before, usually set within an urban backdrop.
Offering connectivity, investment opportunities and an international lifestyle. Nu Sentral has huge growth potential with its location in the Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD, Malaysia’s largest rail transport hub with direct link and passenger check0in facility via the Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal (carrying the IATA global code XKL) at the Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur (SSKL)
In the first phase of the opening, the major anchor tenants which have opened for business are Parkson, Hush Puppies, Sephora, MAchines, L’occittance, Starbucks, O’Brien, Focus Point, Loaf and many more occupying more than 200,000 sq ft. Other well-known brand in this mal include Cotton On, Levi’s, Sushi Tei, Coffee Planet, Wesria Food COurt, Tony Roma’s, My Lucky Gem, Focus Point, Sam Croceria are some of the labels that will be opening soon.
It was really a great battle out between the Blue Team and Red Team. The battle spirit was high. Each team was given a mystery box and they have to prepare food with them. Michael Ang from the Blue team was fun to watch and he is totally at hilarious stand still as he went across to the Red Team to try to confuse their cooking.
As for the Red Team, they really took charge on their preparation, Celina and Soo Wncci were gear on with there preparation while Imelda put on a defence over Michael Ang and chased him away.
By then it was clearly that the Red Team is preparing Corn Beef on Bread. It was really precisely prepared, every piece looked the same. On the other hand the Blue Team when on preparing a sliced bread topped with sautéed mushrooms.
Bloggers got the first tasting both of the team’s creation before the audience. I like the robust taste of the Blue Team mushroom bread while the Red Team’s corn beef is not faraway either. Red Team’s corn beef portion was huge and really tempted the audience and myself.
At the end of the day, bloggers and audience get to vote and the counting favours the Blue Team. The Blue Team with a slightly more margin compared to the Red Team. The afternoon was great and yet filled with pack hilarious action, Definitely very entertaining. Nu Sentral Retail is such gorgeous and I am sure it will be a hit place to be on no time.
