Travel to Osaka is not complete without making a trip to Universal Studios Japan (USJ). The world’s largest Minions Area and The Wizarding World of Harry PotterTM are the two unique attractions that draw the crowd from far and near to experience the USJ fun and magic moment.

The main feature of Universal Summer Festival are the Minion Hacha-mecha Snow Party and Minion Water Surprise Parade. You can dance with the Minions during the snow party or splash around when the water surprise parade passes by to enjoy real summer fun.

The Wizarding World of Harry PotterTM is a must-visit theme park, especially for Harry Potter fans. When you first step into the iconic Hogwarts castle and Hogsmeade village, you step inside a world where magic is real and you can also experience the 4K3D technology of unparalleled realism.

USJ Halloween event is one of the region’s most anticipated events. This year USJ will bring to its visitors the scariest-ever Halloween Horror Night. 20 different types of the living dead – the widest variety of zombies ready to come out on the street and “attack” people. Scare-addicts, this is the event of the year you’ve been waiting for.

night_party_main-edit.jpg每当夏季到来,USJ 就会为粉丝们准备超级精彩且会陷入疯狂的 Summer Fun,今年夏日活动就有小小兵陪伴大家欢度夏日假期,其中最让人期待就是“小小兵雪花疯狂派对”与“小小兵水花惊喜游行”,与小小兵一起展开泼水乐。

哈利波特的魔法世界是强烈推荐一定要到达的,尤其是哈迷们,不管排多长的队伍都一定要想法子进入霍格沃茨城堡,跟哈利与他的伙伴体验禁忌之旅,这项游乐设施以4K3D 最新技术进化,完全是真实体验与哈利一起追“金探子”。

从9月8日起,日本环球影城也配合年度万圣节推出期间限定的“环球惊喜万圣节与惊魂夜”,白天有变装游行、不给糖就捣蛋活动,最刺激就是夜晚的高达 20 种街头僵尸出没。想想,没有胆量还真的没有勇气入园区。

首次出现在大阪环球影城万圣节有“亡者森林”,游客会在影城全区面对僵尸们的对峙,体会生死瞬间的战栗感。还有“创伤 3 恐怖监禁实验室”,你会走进史上最长,没有出口的恐怖馆。还有备受喜爱的“鬼娃恰吉”、“半夜鬼上床迷宫3”、“大法师-除魔行馆”、“贞子-被诅咒的游乐设施”、“学校怪谈”,单听这些设施名字,爱挑战恐怖的你真的不可错过。当然,所有活动时间及地点,还是要以日本环球影城的公告为主。

Chinese Cuisine Redefined 重新定义中式料理

A great dining experience often involves not only fresh ingredients or good taste, but never lacks of creativity and innovation that surprises the diners. There is a restaurant in Penang that has all the qualities and values that is mentioned above, which is the Maple Palace Chinese Restaurant 美寶閣.
 
Maple Palace has a good reputation for serving quality and interesting menu. We substantiated this reputation by interviewing 3 well-known food bloggers in town who have something to say about the restaurant.

一个美好的用餐体验,通常不仅涉及到新鲜美味的料理,还有令人惊喜的创意美食。

槟城有一家餐厅,拥有上述所有的品质和价值,即美寶閣中餐厅。美寶閣有良好的服务和美味有趣的料理。我们访问了3位城中著名美食部落客,让他们为餐厅评价。

Our recent specially curated dinner at Maple Palace showcased the restaurants capability and creativity, presenting us with dishes that were top notch in quality.

The highlights included the BBQ Roasted Spanish Iberico Pork Ribs (served with crispy potatoes and truffle oil salad) which in the deft hands of their chef, could certainly rival any other Western Ribs place in Penang.

The aromatic duck with 7 Head South Africa Abalone combined the best of both worlds – land & sea! Meanwhile the Braised Ee Fu noodles with Goose Web was a rare delicacy that had us wanting more with deep, richly flavoured goose web and addictive springy noodles.

Maple Palace pushes boundaries when it comes to Chinese Cuisine in Penang. From dishes using simple ingredients that pack a punch (like the “Paku Pakis” with ‘Ubah’ Sauce) to the aforementioned highend dishes, Maple Palace shines with their innovative spirit and passion for bringing excellent food to the folks in Penang & beyond!

最近我们特意在美寶閣用餐,餐厅也展示了特别的创意,为我们提供了品质一流的料理。

亮点包括烧烤西班牙大排骨(配松脆的马铃薯和松露油沙拉),在厨师的巧手下,绝对可以媲美槟城其他的西式肋排。

芳香鸭配七头南非鲍鱼结合了海陆最好的两种食材。鹅掌焖伊面味道浓郁淳厚的酱汁配上劲道的面条,让人越吃越上瘾。

美寶閣将槟城中式料理带入了新的境界,从以简单食材烹调的佳肴(特制酱料炒蕨菜)到前述的高级料理,美寶閣以创新的精神和热情,为槟城和他人提供优质味美料理。

Being one of the leaders in Chinese cuisine, Maple Palace strives to provide a pleasant dining experience by combining wonderful ambiance and delicious food prepared using quality and fresh ingredients.

A proven favorite of diners, the restaurant offers options for large and small events, to wedding receptions and also specially-curated set with off-menu dishes based on diner’s preferences.

Like many other diners, I have found comfort in dining at Maple Palace. The restaurant has been providing innovative and flavoursome food. Worth mentioning are the fish steamboat and the BBQ roasted Spanish Iberico pork rib which is an exciting Western fare.The same can also be said about the efficient service and parking convenience.

作为中式料理的佼佼者之一,美寶閣使用优质新鲜食材烹制美味佳肴,致力于提供食客美妙愉悦的用餐体验。

身为受欢迎的餐厅,美寶閣可举办各式活动、婚礼招待,甚至可基于对食物的喜好而设计特别的菜单。

美寶閣是非常舒适的用餐地点,不断提供创新美味的料理。如海虾石斑鱼锅和令人赞叹的西式烹调烧烤西班牙大排骨。优质的服务和方便停车的地点亦值得一提。

Maple Palace is a place filled with memories for me. I still remember how I spent time with family members during weekends at this restaurant in the past. There are many unforgettable dishes that my family and i would always go back just to have the same dishes again.

Ever since they changed ownership in 2009, I can only see more improvements and the food is getting better and more creative. More creative fusion dishes have been added into the menu and became more popular among the local Penangites. Maple Palace is one of the best Chinese restaurants around and I believe it will always be top on the list.

美寶閣是一个充满回忆的地方,我记得在过去的周末,跟家人一起在餐厅度过的美好时光。它有许多令人难以忘怀的佳肴,我和家人每次几乎都会吃相同的料理。

虽然美寶閣曾在 2009 年易主,但它的料理改进得更好更有创意,菜单中添加了许多融合中西的创新料理,非常受当地人欢迎。我相信美寶閣永远都是名列前茅受欢迎的中式料理餐馆。

The Iron Lady of Thailand Hospitality Industry 泰国酒店业之铁娘子

_O8A4890-edit.jpg

Sukanya Janchoo
General Manager of Dusit Thani Bangkok
曼谷都喜天丽酒店总经理


The Dusit Thani success story all started from a young Thai lady who was sent to America by her family to broaden her horizon. Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui was particularly interested in the American hotel culture where service, cleanliness, comfort and friendly attitude were so efficient, and the only difference was that she wanted to create this hotel culture back home in Thailand. Her dream came true when Thanpuying Chanut built Princess, Bangkok’s first modern hotel with a swimming pool. Soon after, her quest to build a truly Thai hotel that rivaled the American standards completed when Dusit Thani Bangkok was founded.

Dusit Thani Bangkok once reigned supreme when it opened its door in 1970 proudly claiming itself as the first international five-star Thai hotel that stood the tallest in the Bangkok skyline. It was and still is today as the perfect place to be for exclusive red carpet gala evenings and beautiful weddings accommodating the highly respected Royal families, international dignitaries, super stars and the rich and famous.

Not only Dusit Thani was built by a Thai lady, today the General Manager for this magnificent hotel is also a lady and she is the first female General Manager of the flagship hotel of Dusit International. Mrs. Sukanya Janchoo has been in the hospitality industry since she graduated from Chulalongkhon University in 1978. A highly respected veteran in Thailand hospitality industry, Sukanya started her career as a chamber maid in London for four years before switching to accounts but her heart and soul have always remained in Thailand. She returned to Thailand in 1980 as an assistant cost controller and turned to marketing after seven years. She candidly explained that she was very good in cost control but she finds sales and marketing a much more challenging job when she was asked why she made the switch.

“If you want to do it, then do your best; if you don’t want, then stop.”

A female executive in a male-dominant industry did not really intimidate this petite lady as she claimed that she was not stressed at all with working in such an environment. ‘Perhaps the men were more stressed working with me?’ she jokingly said. Furthermore she was of the opinion that being female sometimes had its advantages as potential clients ‘pitied’ them and were more willing to spare some time to listen. ‘Feminism’ was then playing a large part in the hotel industry although it was a man’s world. Before criticising any job that one may come across, Sukanya said it is important that we must fully understand the job nature as all jobs, big or small, are important and eventually contribute to the success of an organisation. ‘If you want to do it, then do your best; if you don’t want, then stop,’ she said. Such attitude is important and she felt blessed as she had the opportunity to take on several jobs before becoming a leader. Sukanya was very humble and did not take the credit for her achievements but graciously acknowledged that it was all about having a ‘nice’ group of people to work with and team work. As for her success and accomplishments, this Iron Lady holds the principle of focusing and succeeding in every project. She is all about accomplishing a project and moving on to conquer another and another. A visionary lady who does not achieve only one merit but rather going for merits after merits.

“The millennials is a generation who like to complain but if you are ready to face the challenges in the hotel industry, you must also have the passion and heart to work to achieve success.”

Sukanya feels that it is important to contribute back to the society especially by grooming the new generation. When asked about the millennial, she said, ‘The millennials is a generation who like to complain but if you are ready to face the challenges in the hotel industry, you must also have the passion and heart to work to achieve success’. She strongly believes that Asians today can be as great General Manager as the Europeans, not to mention they understand the culture better and can further enhance the guests’ needs and expectations.

A mother of two, this lady loves to watch movies or go to concerts as a form of relaxation when she is not too caught up with taking care of her six dogs, a cat and a bird. Her final statement when asked what was her plan after Dusit Thani Bangkok stops for renovation for the next few years, her reply was that Dusit Thani Bangkok will never stop but merely entering a new chapter. It will appear very soon to recapture its prime and as for her, she will continue her quest in this industry to face new challenges and come out a winner.

“如果你想这样做,那就全力以赴;如果不愿意,那就停下来。”

都喜天丽(Dusit Thani)的成功故事开端源于一位年轻的泰国女士- Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui,在她被家人送到美国后,对当地酒店文化产生浓厚兴趣,而美国酒店业讲求效率的服务、卫生,舒适和友好的态度让她开拓了视野,唯一的不同是她想要在泰国建立这种酒店文化。而她终于实现了梦想,在曼谷成立了第一家拥有游泳池的现代酒店-公主(Princess)。自此之后,她的目标是打造一家真正与美国酒店软硬体标准相媲美的泰国酒店,因此,曼谷都喜天丽(Dusit Thani Bangkok)也应运而生。

1970 年,曼谷都喜天丽自豪地宣称作为第一家鼎立曼谷天际线顶点的国际五星级酒店。今天,它仍然是举行隆重盛大红毯晚会和美丽婚礼的最佳场所,接待了尊贵无比的皇室家族、国际政要、超级明星和富商名人。

而不仅是都喜天丽是由泰国女性一手创立,今天这家豪华酒店的总经理也是一位女士,她是都喜国际旗舰酒店的第一位女性总经理- Sukanya Janchoo 。自1978 年毕业于朱拉隆赫大学 (Chulalongkhon University) 以来,她一心沉浸在酒店行业。作为一名备受崇敬的泰国酒店业资深老将,在 Sukanya 职业生涯中,转为会计之前,作为女服务员在伦敦工作 4 年,但心魂始终牵挂着故乡泰国。1980 年,她作为助理成本管理专员回到泰国,并在 7 年后转向市场营销。她坦率地说,本身在成本控制方面很得心应手,但为何要接受工作转变是因为她发现销售和营销是一项更具挑战性的任务。

至于在男性占主导地位的行业里,作为女性高管的存在并没有吓倒这位身材娇小的女士,她认为,在这样的环境下,她根本没有压力。“也许和我一起工作,男性们更有压力?”她调侃的说。此外,她还觉得作为女性,有时会更有优势,因为潜在客户多少会有“怜香惜玉”的心理,并且更愿意花些时间倾听。而“女权主义”也在酒店业中扮演了重要角色,尽管这是一个男人的世界。她说,我们在评价任何工作之前,必须充分理解工作的本质,因为所有的工作,无论大小,都显得如此关键,最终会为一个组织的成功做出贡献。“如果你想这样做,那就全力以赴;如果不愿意,那就停下来。”她觉得这样的态度很重要,自己感到很幸运,因为她有机会在成为一名领导者之前经历过不同的工作。Sukanya 非常谦虚,并没有为本身的成就而自傲,但她优雅地承认,这一切都是为了让一群优秀的人一起工作和密切配合。关于她的卓越和杰出,这位铁娘子在每一项计划中都有专注和成功的原则。她着重于完成一个计划后,再开始征服另一个目标。一名有远见的女性,不仅是创造一个优点,而且还要不断追求无数价值优势。

“千禧一代做事喜欢抱怨,但如果做好准备迎接酒店业的挑战,必须具备激情和勇气取得成功。”

她说,回馈和奉献社会是很重要的,尤其是对新一代的培养。至于她本人对千禧一代的看法:“千禧一代做事喜欢抱怨,但如果做好准备迎接酒店业的挑战,必须具备激情和勇气取得成功。”她坚信,今天亚洲人可以逾越欧洲人成为出色的总经理,除了对文化的理解更深刻,也是因为进一步提升满足客人的需求和期望。

至于作为两名孩子的母亲,这位女士闲暇时喜欢看电影或去听音乐会,也是当她可以摆脱照顾六只狗,一只猫和一只鸟的空档时刻。而在提到曼谷都喜天丽接下来的几年里翻新计划完成后,她将推动的新规划,她宣称曼谷都喜天丽永远不会停下脚步,只是迈入了新的篇章。在她的带领下,酒店将重新展现全盛时期的面貌,她会在这个领域中积极寻求新的冲刺,并争取最后胜利。
