Sharing McDonald's moments ! McDonald's promotions 2014 - 2016

McDonald's is on smart move closing down few of its outlets in order to maintain a good annual balance sheet. Is McDonald's growing too fast ? 

The answer is no. If you want which fast food restaurant has surpassed McDonald's in rapid expansion will be KFC. Any small town nationwide you will see KFC and not McDonald's. Then why they are downsizing despite business is strategically located and doing just fine?

No point in arguing on that matter, let just rewind / reminiscence some of the nicest McDonald's Malaysia promotions.

McDonald's Minion toy

1. Minion Toys

Despicable Me the movie was so success when McDonald's Malaysia decided to roll out toy version of Minion everyone was like "I am gonna collect all of them".

McDonald's Malaysia chicken

2. McDonald's Chicken

The taste is fairy nice and so unique. Dipping slice of it into chili sauce is unbeatable combination.

Prosperity burger beef Malaysia

3. McDonald's Prosperity Burger

When Chinese New Year is around the corner, McDonald's never fail rolling out its annually promotional food, prosperity burger. 

FIFA Habanero Burger

4. Habanero Burger

Available during the football madness when Brazil was the main host for FIFA World Cup 2014 that held every 4 years. Never gonna forget painstakingly load of spice inside the burger.

5. Beef Samurai

Eat it like a real Onigiri. The seaweed is bomb coupled with fresh deep-fried fries.

6. Vanilla Ice-cream

The best ice-cream flavor in the world. Cherish your vanilla as in history, vanilla used to be very expensive product and only privileged people access to vanilla ice-cream. Although it much cheaper now, must appreciate every bite of it !

McDonald's Malaysia Congee

7. McDonald's Congee

Home sick of your mother / grandmother Congee ? Now, you can get it at McDonald's without cooking at home.

8. Burger Syok

Notice the artwork ? That is a common depiction of a man draw by local artist. The taste of burger so familiar and delicious.

9. Cakoi with Soya Milk

I do not mean to be rude, when I was eating Cakoi, peoples sitting around me were like kept looked at me, "Am I eating too loud" ? Dipping bits of Cakoi either the chili sauce or Soya milk, it absolutely made my day.

10. Grand Platter

Fulfill your morning with joyful breakfast. Literally wake up early queuing for new McDonald's Malaysia breakfast introduced on early December in conjunction with the launching of Cakoi in the morning menu. Most favorite in this grand platter will be baked bean !!

11. Hawaii Deluxe

The best burger ever. Satisfying level 10 / 10

12. Chicken Wrap

The juicy meat is wrapped flatbread plus ice cold lettuce and purple lettuce bring a sensational meal.

13. Chicken Foldover

Fold with a really thick flatbread plus a two juicy meat. The eating is very different because the meat is not wrapped fully.

5 Reasons McDonalds and KFC are losing out

Robert's Google+

McDonald's and KFC outlets are not closing down

The way some people perceived the McDonald's and KFC are going to close down forever in Malaysia as soon as news broke out the corporation are selling franchise rights. In fact, we will be seeing our beloved fast food outlets closing down gradually due to local investor pulling out their investment. The fast food chain is suffering huge competition.

Instead of making a headline of laying off workers or downsizing, the corporation are selling shares in order to invite more talented shareholders and rising fund for further expansion plans.

These are the restaurants, corporation behind McDonalds and KFC should learn from them. The only thing McDonald's and KFC does the best is free gifts for kids. But, they limited only happy meal get free gift which totally discriminate older person eligible to get toy.


The increasing demand for fast food is great opportunity for Texas Chicken to rise. In my opinion, the Texas Chicken brand is much resounding in the western countries. Texas Chicken coleslaw is much more delicious.


Wendy's promotes healthier burger. If you want a burger that actually naturally decompose faster, come to Wendy's. There was an oldest McDonald's outlet in Penang has been replaced by Wendy's . Who knows after all it was the same owner who opened the oldest McDonald's outlet at Pulau Pinang right ?


Burger topped with maggi seasoning and egg prepared at home. Besides, one could opt eating at any burger stall using Ramli chicken meat.


If you are a great observer, you would notice there are always customers flocking in Japanese restaurants at weekend despite lavish menu. The rising trend of Japanese foods in Malaysia is simply cant be ignored.

You might see it as an irrelevant comparison but both Sushi and burger were not Malaysian foods right ? Besides, you could put it this way comparing Salmon Sushi and Fillet o Fish.


Topped with some side dishes such as lady finger and omelette and curry sauce. Mamak curry flavored chicken definitely attractive.

Malaysia Beef Lover Must Try Yoshinoya Hanamaru

Robert's Google+

Originated from Japan, largest chain of beef rice bowl restaurants.

As restaurants received overwhelm response at bustling city of Kuala Lumpur, business expanded to Penang. Opened it first and ever outlet at Butterworth, Sunway Carnival Mall. Surprisingly to acknowledge one little thing missing here, where are the sushi ?

Yoshinoya mainly serve dishes with beef and chicken. It does not serve any sushi topped with salmon or eel. One of the noticeable strength is food delivery really lightning fast. All of the customers are required to wait at the counter to get their food or if orders are in group, seated first with a ringing device.

Very much like the western fast food concept, green tea are refillable with the one-time cost of RM1.50. Remind you that you have to take your own green tea at the beverage machine.

Besides, they serve some udon at the hanamaru counter. Although there are many Japanese restaurants mushrooming nationwide. This will somehow stand out because it has this specialty in beef bowl.

First try, the juicy and tender beef make me unstoppable to keep feeding more into my mouth. Wait till you slowly moving the spoon beneath the bowl where the Japanese rice located fully covered with some hot beef juice. It only cost more or less RM14.00.

If you crave some sushi, you might get it just located beside Yoshinoya. It Empire Sushi !

Yummy, There are many sushi selection available at Empire Sushi. Plus, it offer reasonable price too !

Location : Sunway Carnival Mall, Jalan Todak Seberang Jaya, 13700 Pulau Pinang.

Mixture of Sprite with a little bit of Ribena enough to turn white into red, there you goes Sakura McFIZZ

Beef Samurai McDonalds

Got to try dipping fried fries with seaweed into the red hot chili sauce for explosive taste. Only with a purchase of newest promotion samurai burger.

Eat the samurai burger in a right manner. Have to imagine eating triangle sushi rice simply holding the cover and tearing only the top part of the burger. Unbelievable tasty sauce coupled with juicy beef meat that will surely make you mouth-watering like never before

McDonalds Malaysia made great effort promoting the newest promotion

Subway Malaysia and Chicken Slice

Totally different experience it was my first time stepping in this grand franchise restaurant in the world. June 2015 marked as the month and year trying Subway meal for the first time in my whole life. I am grateful it was awesome. I will never forget because Subway encouraging customers interaction with the staff picking up i customer's own delicious choices of vegetables, sauces, buns. You will be amazed with the variety.

I have known Subway for a long time since was like 2008 ? Subway always come in mind because of it affordable pricing. You see, everyone could grab it just for RM7.30.

I was terrified when we are customer the one fill up the empty cup. The staff was like passing me the empty cup, I knew this was gonna happen because there was a soft drink machine beside me while I was paying at the counter. Shortly after paid, passing me a empty cup with Subway wording. Never in my whole life filling up own carbonated soft drink.

Variety of delicious sauces, many choices of fresh vegetables are the reason keep me coming.

McDonald's Happy Meal for Free Minion Toys

Robert's Google+

Expect a minion toy and small-cup Coca-Cola. Signs of Minions 2015 movie is coming out to humor you again

McDonalds Happy Meal with Minion Toy

Pride itself to be first in the world introducing a distribution minion toys for each customer purchasing happy meal. Never had a happy meal set at any McDonald's restaurant in my entire childhood. Adult now, the happy meal is not for me anymore.

Perhaps, minion toy convinced me. Still does not make any sense ordering happy meal just for a toy. Luckily, the order taker did not ask for my identification card because only a kids could order a happy meal.

 In order to keep my cool, I ordered a banana toffee Mcflurry. I guess it will act as a disguise / awkward proof vest from just ordering a one happy meal.

When the small cup Coca-cola appeared, I was like this is not happening. I was like you give an adult a small-cup Coca-cola. The people lining at the back of me like "what a weirdo". It tasted like Coca-cola Zero though It good to know that McDonalds Malaysia is adopting a much more healthier carbonated drink for the young. I know one if it was the Red Coca-cola with lots of sugar.

Do you know It happened to me that they actually missed out the minion toy until I started to question them where they hide my minion toy ? Are they trying to take my minion toy away quietly to add in their minion collection or they just naturally think that I am not interested because I am a kids anymore.

Minion Toy 2015 McDonalds Malaysia
One of the 10 Minion toy

At the back of the minion written something like, " Universal studio, for McDonalds, made from China " . Consider this as a free gift for a RM6 ++ happy meal.

There are 9 different more out there. If you ask me will I collect all of them, I need to told you this I have no more  intention ordering another happy meal.

Minion 2015 movie will be on silver screen July 12. Oh man, this movie could humor every walk of life. Still remember a middle-age guys made a epic laughing so hard in front of my seat could barely out of my memory. This time minions is finding a new master before Mr Gru is minion master. I think something is not right, oh yes, the movie is " Despicable Me " instead of Minion.

Trying Zinger Rice Wrap at KFC Suria Sabah

Robert's Google+

Tortilla wrapping with yummy Zinger and aroma colonel rice 

Zinger rice wrap

All-in-one for a healthy diet. There were slices of tomato and cucumber stuffed inside. Every bite it so mix of flavor just like eating a burger. But, this is special one using Tortilla bread. Besides, it not like one had ever tasted colonel rice in a burger. Despite that, I was pretty amazed the colonel rice in a tortilla bread is pretty good combination.

Zinger rice wrap
Reality vs marketing illustration. It should be much more round instead of square.

Orderd RM4.90 Zinger Rice Wrap, told to wait for 5 minutes. Gave me a table number so that they could deliver it to my table. The size of Zinger Rice Wrap is quite satisfactory. Every bite of it adds the size of stomach belly.  

Luckily, there were not too much sauce inside, as if there were it will be all over my clothes and face I believe it should be some mayonnaise or special sauce for this new menu.

Check this out what was the KFC menu last year in March. This year is Zinger Rice Wrap as for last year it was Christiano Ronaldo KFC bucket 

Chinese New Year 2015 Menu at KFC Malaysia

Golden Egg Crunch and Golden Burger delighting you on Chinese New Year 2015

KFC Malaysia Golden burger

It is amusing to know there are some new menu eating at KFC. Could not resist any of them either the golden burger or golden egg crunch. I have ordered both and it is a great and satisfying experience.

Golden Egg Crunch does not taste like normal Kentucky fried chicken. Sjora's juice makes your meal even tastier ever.

A new menu always push away the last great menu brought by KFC. I sincerely hope that one day KFC Malaysia would bring back the old menu. I must say the high-quality fried prawn one should not take it lightly because it taste like so fresh and delicious.

The freshness of the prawn meat is still preserved under high temperature deep-fried I guess they put some secret ingredients deep-fried those golden crunchy prawn. I never like to eat prawn but when I do, I go to KFC.

Chicken Foldover is here at McDonalds Malaysia

McDonalds Malaysia latest menu Chicken Foldover

It is a roti canai folds with two chicken meat and tomato. They should seriously think some special sauce in it because it quite dry. I was hoping some roti canai's curry or bbq sauce. I still vote for spicy Mc Deluxe or Big Mac. They should put scramble egg in between !!

I do not buy your idea of latest menu Chicken Foldover ! It is a genius idea combining roti canai and two pieces of nugget-like chicken meat !


KFC Crispy Prawn and Double Down Maxx

KFC Newest menu for the month of December of year 2014

KFC Double Down Maxx
Closer look and rear

A wise or not-so-wise choice the newest menu in KFC Malaysia right now is Double Down Maxx simply to say removing two bun and replacing it with chicken meat. When eating, you are required to use the KFC plastic cover and not grabbing it like a burger sometimes the chicken meat is still in hot temperature.

A little bit of spicy herb used in making it I would say it pretty awesome to eat. On your last bite, it better measure how oily the food by touching the warm surface of double down maxx you will be wiser next time do not judge the book by its cover. They better use plant oil or palm oil to cook it much more healthier.

Aerial view

The size of the Double Down Maxx is just commendable. I have no idea addressing it as burger or else because it does not fulfill one of the requirement to be a burger. It is in satisfying portion one would not feel it not worth in term of size. However, the price is RM14 plus if one choose Double Down Maxx combo which means it come with additional Pepsi soft drink and cheesy wedges (M).

Crispy prawn KFC Malaysia
Seafood crispy prawn

I went to KFC never thought of there would be any crispy prawn simply going there knowing Double Down Maxx. I have ordered Double Down Maxx combo with crispy prawn total 5 pieces it costs RM7.90. The crispy prawn is just taste so good even though for me who does not like to eat seafood. One need not pluck away prawn hardened part just swallow it everything !

Double Down Maxx KFC

The box is amazingly manufactured. Do not hesitate too long find double down maxx by opening the box !!!

Malaysia McDonald's Double Beef Samurai Junior

McDonald's Malaysia rolled out new menu "Double Beef Samurai Junior" on September 26, 2014

McDonald's Malaysia double beef samurai junior

You know why McDonald's staffs always asks its customers "Large meal or not" It really obvious that they want you to you spend more on your meal. It is a standard operating procedure (SOP) for them to ask you. Large meal seem to be a very goo deal but you can always say something like "normal" or "no".  

Double Beef Samurai Junior

This burger cost around RM4.75 if you said "no" or "normal" to the staff. When you said "Yes, I want a large meal" the price will not be the same. There was a RM1 price increased for you to say "Yes". The price will be RM5.75 instead. Ok, you may say the french fries and Pepsi were to be larger than the medium-sized. Unless you are really hungry, you should order the large meal then.

The taste of Double Beef Samurai Junior is likened to a prosperity burger. Luckily, I ordered a double beef rather than one beef. I would be seriously surprised if I was not. Well, the meal is quite delicious and ward off starving. It seem that McDonald's Malaysia and KFC have things in common. KFC rolled out Tokyo sauce and McDonald introduced Samurai sauce. Wondering what is McDonald's Malaysia next new menu ?? 

Besides Double Beef Samurai Junior., I have eaten McDonald's Habanero Burger during the FIFA 2014 season and Mccountry and McFlurry Durian flavor . I am looking forward to eat more and more !!!

Votes for McDonald's vs KFC French Fries

Robert's Google+

Battle of the french fries between McDonald's and KFC

KFC french fries vs McDonald's french fries

Let get to the bottom of this. KFC introduced its french fries not while ago. What was their intentions doing that ? KFC french fries mixed with crispy black pepper ? Yeah, it definitely taste something else.

We know that since the beginning that McDonald's french fries is unrivaled. It seem like fast food restaurants in Malaysia is re-focusing on this food. I have not try burger king's new french fries which look ridiculously awesome. The texture is so fine. It so much taller !

Maybe I would put McDonald's, Burger King and KFC battle of french fries somewhere in the future. The left picture was captured eating at KFC restaurant. It was the new menu "Tokyo Black Pepper Chicken Chop", whereas, the right picture is recently captured eating at McDonald's restaurant new menu "Double Beef Samurai Junior".

More detail about KFC's Tokyo Black Pepper Chicken Chop

The good old days when everything is so much easier. If one wants to eat chicken, we will head to KFC. If we are craving for burger, it should be McDonald's. Now, McDonald's introduced chicken while KFC introduced french fries. Sometimes, the not-so-wise get confused which to choose both are big restaurants franchise.
