Standard Chartered Extravagant 8 Promotion

Slight recap, for your convenience :)....

Choices, choices...

With CNY just around the corner, there are so many offers/ promotions going on at the various eateries - here's an interesting one, brought to you by Standard Chartered Malaysia - The Extravagant 8 Promotion.

There are 8 participating restaurants, all with their own signature menu designed for 8 people and priced at RM 888++ (What a very prosperous menu, right?).

What's even more interesting (to me anyway) is that Stan Chart specifically worked together with the restaurants to come up with delicious shark fin free choices)...

Great idea to compile it in one blog post J! You're a genius since it makes it easier also to compare the eight menus and pick one for the festive season.

thule a.k.a leo said...

out of the 8 restaurants, how many have you gone to so far?

J said...

to boo_licious:
Thanks. Was just trying to sum everything up in a convenient way for everyone. :)

to thule aka leo:
I've only been to 2 (Li Yen and Tai Zi Heen) for this promotion, so that's why I linked everyone else's reviews for you to refer to. :)

Life for Beginners said...

You are so organised lah, J. So when are you gonna hit the remaining six restaurants?

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Well, you've certainly made my husband's job easier (for the linking!). Thanks babe! :-)

minchow said...

I don't have a StanChart card! Anyone with one planning to hit Gu Yue Tien with a spare seat at your table, please let me know!

Sean said...

Awesome post. Do you mind if I ask what your source is for this information?

J said...

to anonymous:
Thanks!... And no, I don't mind at all.

Most of the info was from the Stand Chart website that I linked. Or from the various blogs linked. :)

I think you'll want to get a facebook icon to your site. Just marked down this site, but I must complete this by hand. Simply my suggestion.
