Restaurants charging GST and/or Service charge in Damansara Uptown

Some innovative netizens have started a website to list restaurants charging GST and/or Service charge at check-service-charge.herokuapp.com/

One of them charging both GST plus Service charge is Han Woo Ri Korean BBQ Restaurant.

I have previously eaten at Restaurant Tzuk Sheng Lao even before 1st April 2015, that is, before GST formally started and they already have GST and Service charge listed in their receipts. I was then charged only for Service Charge but the waiter said after April 1st, they will charge both so I think I should add that restaurant to the list of restaurants charging both.

Drink cloud juice, but not at Damansara Uptown

Or at least not yet until someone or some enterprise bottle cloud juice from Taman Negara.

Haven't heard of cloud juice? Heard of sky juice? All would know that sky juice is plain water, mostly from tap water. But cloud juice? Something new? It seem Tasmania has been harvesting rainwater at the remote King Island, processed it into potable water, bottled them for distribution, even for export.

Now National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) wants to get into the act. NAHRIM had been researching on harvesting rainwater at Taman Negara, converting it to potable water whild studying the feasibility of bottling cloud juice for commercial purpose.

Its founders Amily Chong and Redmond Ho wants to have the distinction to be the first in Malaysia to introduce the cereal milk soft serve ice cream, rather similar to what you can get at New York's Momofuku Milk Bar. It is made by lightly roasting cornflakes, then steeping them in milk, filter then churned into ice cream.
