Bell & Ross July 2015 Call of Duty GTG 2, Penang
« on: July 07, 2015, 07:14:02 PM »
Recently, FJ Benjamin was generous enough to host a lunch event in Penang.
It was held at Farquhar Mansion.
I wasn't planning on attending but since it was a weekend, I thought what the heck la...
And it was a trip worth making...



Lunch menu for the day.
First, the food.













Food was excellent.
Setting was excellent as well sans for the separation into 2 groups due to the restaurant's limitation.
Nevertheless, we all get to mingle along.



After the meal, there was a magic show by Mr.Zlwin... entertaining...
Not much pics taken during this time... we were all hell bent on trying to break the magician's code... and all failed miserably... lol



After the show... Mr.Tong of FJ Benjamin took centre stage to introduce the Bell and Ross 2015 collection.







I am liking what I see already...

And when we thought that was all... surprise surprise...
FJ Benjamin actually brought along most of the watches for us to see...
I think there was about 20+ watches including some Special Editions and Prototypes.





































Overall... it's a really impressive show.
There is something for everybody.
The ladies collection is interesting...
With a very unique mother of pearl camo dial... I think it's the first (correct me if I'm wrong)

Total attendance of more than 30 people... everyone left happy.

Did I mention that the event is fully sponsored?
Yup... Attendees need not pay for anything.

Some drove from Kuala Lumpur, some fly in from Singapore...
We all had a good time.
I only brought my camera for the event.
I will let the other members chip in with more pics... most of them jalan jalan cari makan...

A big thank you to FJ Benjamin for organizing the event.

Terrenceterrence "seriously, i think buying a watch for it's secondhand value is like getting married and thinking about divorce at the back of your mind."

mushroom soup is light and freshing... after the strong taste prawn


duck Confit, house special

or


pan-seared salmon trout
the salmon is fresh, 70% cooked, hence is moist & tender instead of often dry and tough texture
serve with the saffron seafood sauce...


u gonna love this dessert. wasnt sure what is this
pastry is chewy, ice cream and sweet caramel sauce with nutty ( likely macadamia nuts ) flavor

+ a coffee...
