ARISSTO Tea - The New Art Of Tea

ARISSTO, well known for their coffee brewing machine, recently held a grand launch of their latest ARISSTO TeaPresso. Interesting much, now you get to enjoy and savour your perfect cup of tea from an ARISSTO machine. It was a grand launch, attended by well over 5,000 guests! Tea revolution indeed. Read on. 

ARISSTO Tea - The New Art Of Tea

The art of brewing tea the traditional way is declining, as the younger generation wants things fast. Previously, in the traditional way of boiling tea, it requires good quality tea leaves, water, and a refined tea set. Not only that, one also needs to be able to control the precise temperature, time and techniques in order to brew a good tea that is fragrant, crystal clear and without bitterness in taste.

A grand launch of ARISSTO Tea
Five different flavours of tea capsules

Enter ARISSTO TeaPresso!

Inspired by the high pressure steam technology of Italy Espresso, ARISSTO develops TeaPresso, the revolutionary tea by merging it with the state of art capsule technology. The ARISSTO TeaPresso seals tea leaves into patented capsules that help preserve its freshness.

How Does it Work?

It’s a rather simple affair, just insert a tea capsule into the ARISSTO Capsule Machine, press a button and you’ll have your flavourful tea prepared in front of you. 19 bars of pressurized steam will be injected into the tea capsule to release the tea essence in 30 seconds. Instant, and far better than brewing standard tea bags. Now why didn’t anyone think of this before?!

An Education Transformation Programme to Develop Holistic Children

Have you ever reminisced about your schooling days, where teachers were strict and would throw a chalk at you whenever they feel you weren’t attentive? The constant memorising of facts and figures for exams? Well, that is our Malaysian education system, where the person who’s best at memorising or who has a photographic memory will excel in academics. But if we continue down this path, then the future of our children is at stake. 

LeapEd Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0) - Education Service Provider


LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd (‘LeapEd’), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad, is Malaysia’s first homegrown education service provider and social enterprise. I was introduced to them last week at an event to understand and learn more about their education transformation initiatives, such as Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0), which has been underway for the past 9 years. What an eye-opening session it was! 

The great folks from LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd (Dr Suseela Balakrishnan, Head of Design, Monitoring & Evaluation, Nina Adlan Disney, General Manager Education Development, Zulhaimi Othman, Managing Director of LeapEd and Brian John Ambrosio, Head of State Education Advisory Services)

As a parent of two young children - one school-going and another just about ready to begin primary school - I understand the efforts required in cultivating 21st century ready students, and for them to be equipped with life skills such as confidence, communication, co-existence, critical thinking and creativity. But if the culture of memorising information for exams is still what our education system is based on, then how are our children going to progress?

Holistic education transformation? Yes please!

Check out the video below on what whole school transformation means:

LeapEd Introduction Video - YouTube

What is the Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0)?

Have you heard about Trust Schools Programme (TSP 1.0) before? Frankly, it was my first time hearing about the programme too when I was invited by LeapEd to participate in their dialogue session earlier this month.

Through the session, I discovered that TSP 1.0 is a programme focused on whole school transformation. Together with Yayasan AMIR and the Ministry of Education, LeapEd ensures that the programme is customizable, to ensure sustainability in Malaysian schools.

But how do they go about it? Well, the TSP 1.0 approach focuses on a public-private partnership (‘PPP’) outreach model, working collaboratively with school leadership teams, teachers, students, parents and the community to ensure it runs smoothly.

Where in Malaysia is TSP 1.0 implemented?

Currently, there are currently 83 schools under the TSP 1.0 across 12 states in Malaysia, including Kelantan (5 schools), Terengganu (12 schools), Pahang (3 schools), Kuala Lumpur (6 schools), Negeri Sembilan (1 school), Johor (18 schools), Sarawak (15 schools), Sabah (5 schools), Selangor (14 schools), Perak (4 schools). 

Great testimonials from the schools involved in TSP 1.0.

Yes, that means LeapEd goes into selected schools, focusing on transforming the school culture and administration. In fact, TSP 1.0 is LeapEd’s flagship programme designed to develop holistic students with 21st century capabilities. Since its roll-out in 2011, the TSP 1.0 has impacted over 5,300 parents and 65,000 students across the country!




TSP 1.0 promotes effective methodologies via a series of Continuous Professional Development programmes and a structured Performance Management system. Teachers then incorporate these techniques into their daily classroom practices, leading to an enriched and personalised learning experience!

Holistic Students Not Reliant only on GPAs

As we all know, GPAs are not the only indicator of getting good employee in the workforce. Transformative education that goes beyond academics, focusing on developing holistic individuals - that’s what TSP 1.0 intervention model is all about. 

Equipping Malaysian students with skills for life-long learning is a crucial part of today’s education.

LeapEd's Impact Study Revealed

LeapEd also revealed their latest Impact Study findings that was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of TSP 1.0. The Impact Study was conducted via a mixed methodology involving surveys, interviews and observations with over 3,000 respondents including school staff, students and parents.

The study revealed that 95% of secondary school teachers and 76% of primary school teachers moved up by at least 1 level up the scale, from Starting to Developing or Enhancing to Extending.


LeapEd's Impact Study Revealed


Some key findings can be seen, listed below:

  • 91% of Primary & 88% of Secondary Students perceive the quality of teaching to be high
  • 66% of Senior Leadership in schools indicated they have progressed a minimum of 1 level
  • 49% of Middle Leadership indicated they have progressed a minimum of 1 level
  • 61% of Teachers indicated they have progressed a minimum progress of 1 level
Because every child deserves a great future indeed!


Trust School Programme 2.0 (TSP 2.0) Is Coming!

With the implementation of TSP 1.0, parents have also witnessed a palpable difference in their children as they observed an increase in opportunities for them to be involved in the life of the schools. 

Managing Director of LeapEd Services Sdn Bhd, En Zulhaimi Othman speaking at the media session.


TSP 2.0 is the next evolution of LeapEd’s Trust Schools Programme, which leverages on the success and learnings of TSP 1.0. Designed as a model that is both sustainable and scalable, TSP 2.0 has been launched in 2019 in selected Malaysian public schools. As a parent, I truly look forward to the roll-out of this new phase of TSP as we continue to work towards education transformation for the betterment of our children.

I also hope that more private companies are able to come on board this education transformation journey, to provide the much needed funding in this public-private partnership that will eventually prepare our young children towards a better, brighter future!

Northern Indian & Persian Cuisine @ Drop Exchange, Solaris Mont Kiara

Always on a look out for some good noms, I was over at this rather unique Wall-Street themed bar and restaurant the other day. Located in Solaris Mont Kiara, Drop Exchange looks every bit the watering hole you would have expected from the outside, but the moment we entered, we realise they serve some really good Northern Indian & Persian Cuisine! Relaxing ambiance, read on for what noms they have to offer. 

Northern Indian & Persian Cuisine @ Drop Exchange, Solaris Mont Kiara

Drop Exchange
Address: 
K-G-3, Solaris Mont Kiara
No 2, Jalan Solaris, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Tel : 6012-608 9066

Good yums!
Northern Indian & Persian Cuisine 
Interesting decor

Did I mention this is a wall street themed bar and restaurant? That’s how the name Drop Exchange came about, named after the fluctuations in the stock market, but also with a hint of fun, especially with regard to the drop in their drink prices. Pretty cool. 

We kicked off our meal at Drop Exchange, Solaris Mont Kiara with some Homemade Cottage Cheese Chargrill. One of the many appetisers on the menu, the cheese doesn’t look like it at al, but the moment you pop it into your mouth, the cottage cheese marinated with spices literally melts in your mouth. 

Homemade Cottage Cheese Chargrill (RM27)

We then tried out the Cutlis, a vegetable dish, which was really savoury, hiding the fact that there’s no meat inside. Vegetable cutlet, deep fried, inside the feeling is made of boiled vegetables. Nice!

Cutlis (RM25)

Ah, bring forth the meat! Chicken Tikka is always a safe choice for chicken lovers. Prepared tandoori styled, we loved how the flavours really complemented the chicken meat. Authentic flavours of Punjab chicken, must try!

Chicken Tikka (RM30) 


What’s a good Northern Indian & Persian Cuisine without some curry dish? Up next, we had the Salli Ma Margi, a persian styled chicken curry offering, topped with generous amounts of crunchy potato salli. Good to have with the Pav, some homemade soft bun served on the side, this is some awesome curry gravy!

Salli Ma Margi (RM25)

Another rather elaborate dish came next, the Papeta Par Edu, a Parsi style tomato onion masala topped with baked sunny side up egg. What caught my attention the moment it was served was the egg! It looked really appetising, and when we dug in deeper, the onion masala inside, tasty! 

Papeta Par Edu (RM20)

Rogan Josh, one whole piece of mutton cooked in aromatic spices and more! The dish is a rather big one, so be sure to share it when ordering. 

Rogan Josh (RM40) 

We ended our rather heavy meal at Drop Exchange, Solaris Mont Kiara with some sweet Indian desserts. They offer a wide variety of Indian desserts from Besan Barfi, Rabadi, Gulab Jamun, Kulfi and more. We tried a few, some were a tad too sweet for my tastebuds, but it was a good end to our meal. 

Gulab Jamun (RM12)
Kulfi (RM15)

Did you know Drop Exchange, Solaris Mont Kiara even has an app? Go download it from Google Play Store and Apple App Store to find out more. Now if you’re in the vicinity of Solaris Mont Kiara, don’t forget to try them out. Quote "Isaactan.net" and get 20% off on your food bill, valid till 31st October 2019. Make your reservations today by calling 603-6412 2113 or Whatsapp’ing to 6012-608 9066.

Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) Review

Recently, to too long ago, I've gotten my Unifi upgraded to the 100Mbps package. To me, this is a major upgrade to my previous Streamyx 4Mbps package. Happiness all around at that time, until I realize the connection gets weaker aka slower when I'm using the net in my bedroom upstairs. Ever had that problem? What’s the cause of this? Blame it on our Streamyx default modem and router? Does the fact that the house has thick walls everywhere impeding the signal? 

It was awesome timing then that I found the Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600). What’s this Linksys Velop thingy you may ask? Well, that’s the purpose of my writeup today, to share on this really cool whole-home Wifi or mesh-router system. 

Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) Review

With coverage up to 6,000 square feet, no more dead spots no matter where I am in the house! The best part is, I could setup, monitor and control home Wi-Fi with the Linksys App, wirelessly no matter where I am. Read on below for my review after using this system for a month. 

Linksys Velop - YouTube


What is the Linksys Velop all about?

A short introduction is in order. If you’re like me, one who has not heard about mesh-router systems, then Linksys Velop has to be one of the easiest ones to setup, no major headaches whatsoever. The Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) uses several routers that work seamlessly with each other to ensure the Wifi signal of our home remains the same throughout the whole house. 

Lovely, sturdy packaging
The contents, 3 nodes, 3 power supplies, LAN cable and an instruction leaflet

Design and Features

The packaging that houses the Linksys Velop does look good. Unboxing it is pretty quick, no fuss and simple enough. Inside you get three individual wrapped nodes, together with three power supplies with the 3 pin plugs. The nodes look really nice in matte white, not too tall at 185mm with a 76 mm wide square footprint. Minimalism at its best, these nodes will look great no matter where you place it at your home.

The Linksys Velop node in my hands
Power supplies, very "Apple" like. 

The tall columns are easy to place around your home and their unobtrusive finish means that they'll blend neatly into the background. Available as either a single unit, in 2, or in a pack of 3 nodes, depending on the size of your home, you can play around with the number of nodes to be set up. What’s cool is that you can only have one Wifi name and password for all 3, giving us the option to roam seamlessly between each node. No more signal loss!

The "main" node, located next to my TM Unifi modem 

Under each node, we have 2 ethernet ports, which suffice for me, as I did not plan to connect any wires, going fully wireless. However, if you require more ethernet ports for printers, or other peripherals, then probably 2 isn’t enough. Each node has a power switch, power input and a reset button. What I like is the fact there’s a single light on top which glows in a number of colours depending on the status of the node. Setting up, going strong, or having weak signals will output a different light colour.

Under each node, we have the 2 ethernet ports, power switch, power input and a reset button


The Linksys Velop has self-healing functions, that if someone accidentally unplugs a node, the other nodes will pick up the slack.

You could even place it in the kitchen if you like, pic source from Linksys website

How To Setup?

Catch the video below, provided by Linksys on step by step setup instructions

Linksys Velop: How to setup - YouTube



Wirelessly Access the Dashboard On your App

Setting up, accessing the settings, simple as it may be is done through the app on our smartphones. I could setup, monitor and control home Wi-Fi with the Linksys App, wirelessly no matter where I am, be it at office, in the house, at the park. The screen on the app displays the name of the network, how many devices are connected, and buttons to turn Guest Access, Parental Controls, and Device Prioritization on or off. Simple, yet effective. 


Step by Step
Configuration was quick and painless
Voila! My Dashboard, accessible via the app on my mobile device

Satisfaction 

Checking my speeds in Speedtest website/app deals me nearly max 100Mbps throughput, even in my bedrooms, at the corner of the toilet. No more dead spots at home. Now this is really satisfying, considering that before this, each time I wanted to connect to my wifi upstairs (my router was placed downstairs), the speed and connectivity will always drop.


Linksys Velop: True Whole Home Wi-Fi - YouTube

Technical Specs

The Linksys Velop Intelligent Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System 3-Pack White (AC6600) is my type of lifestyle router, each to set up, once all three nodes are up and running, no further configuration required. It just works. I did find out that the pricing for this system is pretty high compared to other competing brands out there.

When was the last time you’ve been to Atria Shopping Gallery in Petaling Jaya? Now I’ve not always been there, but I did take notice of the numerous eateries and restaurants in the mall. This time around, I was there for the grand launch of Ryoshi Izakaya Signature, a Japanese restaurant with promises to bring a true slice of Japan to Atria Shopping Gallery. Read on, for what transpired during the launch. 

Ryoshi Izakaya Signature Grand Opening @ Atria Shopping Gallery

Premium Japanese Food

The grand opening was one of festivities, with loud lion dances, photo booths, and most importantly, good noms. With an aim to only serve fresh premium Japanese food ingredients, a quick glance on their menu showcases authentic Japanese cuisine favourites covering appetiser, soup, sashimi, tempura, grilled dish and rice. The restaurant itself exudes a feeling of comfortable ambiance. 

One whole Fresh Bluefin Tuna

Special Live Demonstration and Tasting of Fresh Bluefin Tuna

Upon arriving at Ryoshi Izakaya Signature, I was rather surprised to see one whole huge piece of fresh Bluefin Tuna laid out on the table. We were then shown a special live demonstration and tasting of fresh Bluefin tuna. Interesting experience indeed, as I did not realise it’s not an easy task cutting into and preparing the sashimis I love so much.

From 22 to 23rd June, in conjunction with the grand opening, they had an iconic special Omakase pairing set of Bluefin Tuna and sake at only RM499 per person, and at RM299 for the second person. To perfect the Japanese cuisine dining experience, an array of premium sakes and beverages will be available for guest to choose from while dining at the restaurant.

It wasn’t a full fledge food review, hence we were not able to try out Ryoshi Izakaya Signature’s other offerings, but we’ll be back for sure, to try their other fares. Enjoy affordable set lunch from RM19.90 onwards, 12-3pm, Mondays- Fridays. For beer lovers, you can drink up to 10 mugs of Carlsberg at only RM99. Pretty good promotions available now.

Checking Out The Show Units of The COMO

The COMO positioned itself as a property, or home for families. There are several different choices of layouts housing between 2 and 5 bedrooms along with uniquely planned duplexes and dual-key units. What’s a dual-key unit? I had the chance to enter one, as they have a show unit showcasing these dual-key units. Basically we have 2,000+ square feet of comfortable space, which can accommodate two families as each has their own amenities from kitchen, dining space, to living rooms and bathrooms. 

Beatiful interior design and furniture placements
Comfy bed 

Designed to utilise and maximise living space, to provide the best of practical and comfortable living, even the smallest unit felt surprisingly big. I was intrigued by the lanai aka porch inside the house. Relaxing on a  couch, overlooking the view outside, it’s very nice!

I do love a good cup of coffee and am always on a look out for events related to coffee appreciation. Interestingly, this weekend, this has to be the perfect venue for us to be at!
