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.

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a burger that actually naturally decompose faster, come to Wendy's. There was an oldest McDonald's outlet in Penang has been replaced by Wendy's .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.

Exclusive Coca-cola Can for Euro 2016 France

Robert's Google+

I like how Coca-Cola influences our minds that, every sport must associate with a can of Coca-Cola. Not that I like Coca-cola or Euro 2016, I simply like how Coca-Cola, Euro 2016 France and the new packaging combined altogether.

Instead of collecting the Coca-cola bottle which many has done that to the extent that they will put all of the Coca-Cola cans to a big shelves for displaying. I personally rather collecting the memory and photo with Coca-Cola.

I do not go to a store and pick up Coca-cola randomly as my diet cannot afford a flavored drink. Besides, It cost more or less RM7.00 at 7-Eleven store, you might think this is some kind of purchase at Hotel or Island, no. Who are going to buy 250ml Coca-cola with RM7.00 right ? someone need to be a Coca-cola fans to do that.

It so strange that whenever Coca-cola made any promotion or new packaging, I have desire to buy it. Reminiscing how much Coca-cola I have drank in my life, it is crazy !

So any Malaysian Coca-cola fans wanted to collect it feel free to visit nearest 7-Eleven store now !

These are 10 Malaysian Favorite Ice-Cream

Robert's Google+

Melt Your Heart, Always Do !


I doubt McDonalds Malaysia earn most in burger segment. As you can see, sometimes McDonalds Malaysia rolled out a small McDonalds kiosk to sell only their ice-cream cone. In term of availability, price and product who could stand out ? I bet the first thing pop up in Malaysian mind when speaking of ice-cream is Vanilla Sundae Cone.


This has stolen Malaysian daily salary !! Some of us would think that 3 scoops of Baskin Robbins almost equivalent to Malaysia's daily minimum wage !

magnum white almond


Magnum Malaysia created few nice events and astonishing marketing plans. Wall's Magnum is pretty happening right now with so many fund for their advertising campaign. To really define Magnum ice-cream, Hard Chocolate covering a within Soft Vanilla !!!

Nestle Kit Kat Green Tea Ice - Cream


It literally stuck a Kit Kat bar in the middle of ice - cream cone. It feel so uncomfortable because usually the within ice-cream should be soft !! Any flavor but green tea. Deep down in my heart, Green tea suppose to be consumed in liquid form. It is best that stay that way for centuries

Milo Ice Cream cone


For centuries I have Milo in liquid form, this is the first time I heard someone actually came out an idea to make my usual milo ice into a complete solid form. Oh Man, everytime I think about it I think about Sensodyne toothpaste. My teeth cannot withstand the cold feeling By the way, I still think No. 3 is better !!

New Zealand Natural


This came out of nowhere ! One of the premium ice-cream offering


Must warned reader please do not fried it more than 10 seconds . Keep it less than 5 seconds and the chocolate within will be in a much solid form than the above picture shown.


Widely advertised ice-cream in Malaysia. Put up a really great win-win marketing campaign. Taylor Swift was about to make concert in Asia which Cornetto is making the awareness in the same time Cornetto brand could be brought up with Taylor Swift popularity !



Complicated brand title but everyone is curious and making a fuzz eyebrow. Oreo and vanilla ? That make perfectly fine for me ! It did remind me of my childhood due to the ice-cream cup. I must confess girl are crazed about ice-cream stick !


Ice Cold ice-cream for perfect afternoon ! Scorching hot sun coupled with El- Nino phenomenon impacted Malaysia. .

Robert's Google+

It always been a joyful feeling to see a hugely successful F&B business worldwide opening it outlet in Malaysia. Vice versa, it happy to acknowledge local F&B business are able to open outlet at oversea

These are the F&B restaurants where the local spent their weekend. Although there are lots of delicious F&B restaurants, these are my list of top 10 favorite F&B restaurants to go !

Check it out ! another list of my 10 Successful Food & Beverage Restaurants in Malaysia


The brand "Oldtown" is not unfamiliar to Malaysian. In order to compete in market, mass expansion throughout nationwide most crowded and strategic places were launched. Signature food and drinks are Oldtown White coffee and Curry Mee.


The brand "Chatime" actually means something goes like this, "give me a break, drink tea" or, "It's time for tea". Anyways, Asian does not despise tea. Chatime pretty much dominating Malaysia's demand for milktea.

Huge success skyrocketed the Chatime ambitious move to open more outlets nationwide. Signature drink is pearl milk tea with red bean ! You could order one cup to try at RM6.5 - RM8.5


A popular dessert brand in Malaysia currently embarking expansion. Brought to you as far as Taiwan. Those who missed Taiwan dessert, this is a great place to satisfy your taste bud.


Chicken Rice Shop

Probably the only way to beat too much fried chicken is to have a feast on steam chicken. Rumor has it that steam chicken is much healthier ! definitely should try the Pai tee.


Pizza Hut Crown

Malaysian does not turn their back at Pizza ! Cheese, pineapple, chicken reminds me of Hawaii Chicken Pizza !! Pizza Hut is one of the most popular brand before KFC and McDonalds. I will rank Pizza Hut 3rd in orderly manner.


Subway Chicken Slice Sandwiches

The tempting submarine sandwiches were no boundary in seducing our taste bud. The taste is always lingering at our mouth ! It get so addictive and so much cheaper !


Instead of getting a coffee, take a cup of fruits blended drink ! Take a fruit a day, keep doctor away ! Imagine all the healthy food blended together added with special flavor for your day !! For ordinary Malaysian, most of us don really know how to blend the right fruits !

After drinking Boost's juice, immediately recovered from a light flu !


Malaysian are started to jump into frenzy of Japanese food. The brand "Sushi Zanmai" is getting popular due to its daring expansion across Malaysia. The vast opportunity is there to capture Malaysia market for Japanese food. ! Malaysia never shy away from fish such as Salmon and Eel !


Domino reigns heavily at West Malaysia competing with Pizza Hut. The presence od Domino at East Malaysia is marginal.

10.  WENDY'S

Witness the world third largest hamburger restaurant "Wendy". One can get to dine at Sunway Pyramid. Wendy always promote it superior healthy hamburger !
