#MasterchefAsia - You'll Never Wander Alone


Friday, 4 September 2015


One thing you should know about Anfieldyee, is that though she can recommend good food, the truth is: she can't cook.

However, I believe it helps me a lot to appreciate the good food! #lameexcuse

Back to the topic. I was never a food lover. I mean, I hardly can cook, I have no idea how good food should taste like in my young days until I watch Masterchef Australia in Melbourne. When you are in Aussie, it's not too difficult not to watch this show.

I think Masterchef is a successful TV reality show, regardless of any country. At least it inspires me to cook up in the kitchen (which is not very successful hahaha). True enough that the Australia's version had brought it to another level, but I honestly think that with the right marketing way, it should able to have many people's attention.

Which is why, I'm glad to hear that Masterchef is going to have an Asia version way coming now!

Just last two weeks I manage to attend the "Masterchef Asia Meet & Greet Session" at Mid Valley.

It was a small meet and greet session. Not much of an audience but more than enough to catch many shopper's attention (well, this is Mid Valley tho). Perhaps Masterchef is pretty new here. Let's see if Masterchef Asia could stir up the Masterchef craze in Malaysia! Or maybe Asia.

So what's Masterchef?

In case you are wondering, it's a cooking competition where the top amateur cooks in that particular country will compete each other to win the Masterchef. Masterchef is originally from the UK. However, it started to gain international recognition from Masterchef Australia at 2009. That's also how I started to know there's Masterchef US & UK, but not much of chasing. To this date, I am still sticking to Masterchef Australia.

With the Masterchef Australia's popularity, I guess that pretty much influence them to come out with Masterchef Asia. So Lifetime will be broadcasting a total of 15 episode of Masterchef Asia. 15 Contestant ranges from China, HK, Taiwan to South East Asia will be taking part in this challenge. Each episode comes with one of the contestants will be eliminated. The last survivor will, of course, become the very first Masterchef Asia winner!

That clockkkk! I think it had tortured many contestants lol.

The tasting table.

The kitchen. 

The meet & greet session. There were 30 mins delayed -____-

 The Judges: Susur Lee, Audra Morrice and Bruno Menard

The Malaysian contestants represented by our 3 biggest race - Sophia (Malay), Marcus (Chinese) and Jasbir (Indian). How proud!

Obviously we only can meet those Malaysian contestant but everything I've watched on the TV became so surreal. Their kitchen set is not as complete as it what it suppose to but just enough for a little old fan, namely me, to keep myself happy. =)

Thank you, God,  for allowing me to experience a small part of Masterchef. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Masterchef Asia got, and also to give support to our Malaysia Team. GO GO GO Malaysia!! Made us proud!

You can catch Masterchef Asia at Astro Lifetime: Channel 709 every Thursday 9pm.
For the non-Astro user / in case you've missed the previous episode, you can watch online after one week of broadcast at http://www.msn.com/en-sg/lifestyle/masterchefasia.
Their official FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MasterChefAsia

By the way, this is not a sponsor/ invite event in case you're wondering. I wish I were invited so I can collect the goodies bag & taking a selfie with the judges lol. I attended because I'm a Masterchef fans, and also how important Masterchef to me for my whole Foodie Adventure.

So food bloggers, how do you begin your foodie journey? Do share.
