The Roof and my Galaxy Life DealWednesday, February 19, 2014
I had heard so many things about The Roof, I decided it was high time I try it for myself. So off J and I went, my Samsung in hand (I'll tell you more about that later), and we soon found ourselves seated next to what I'm sure is the best view in the BU area.
Before I get into the pictures and food, for those of you who don't know, The Roof is a premium entertainment hub, housing a restaurant, bar, club and cigar lounge all in one rooftop venue. It boasts amazing views of the city, and some pretty top notch food and drink, too.
J and I, along with the lovely (and coincidentally, also newly engaged) Alicia and partner, treated ourselves to a yummy dinner at Signature - the restaurant at The Roof.
My starter was what I can only describe as the best mushroom soup I have ever tasted - I am still drooling as I type this, and I will be back for more. The little toastie stick accompanying my soup was not my favourite - it lacked flavour and texture - but nothing could dull my euphoric tasting experience. That mushroom soup was heaven!
J had the escargot, and according to him, they were lovely. Alicia had the same, and she was lapping up the sauce - the dish was that good.
Next came the mains, and I had a ball gorging on mine. I ordered the beef tenderloin, and it came cooked just as I asked, with a really yummy, hearty gravy, on top of a pumpkin mash that surprisingly (I don't like pumpkin), I actually enjoyed. The flavours meshed really well together, and I had the added surprise of an unexpected garnish on the side - chocolate coated garlic cloves! I didn't expect to like it, but I actually really did. Good job, Signature!
Now on to the good part. If you own a Samsung (that's why I was proudly clutching my Samsung as we walked into the joint!), head over here - http://bit.ly/GALAXYlife - to download the Samsung Galaxy Life app; an app that gives you access to loads of deals and offers from merchants around you. The app is live and running in Malaysia at the moment, and gives you access to deals like the one I used for the above meal - purchase any main at RM50 and above and receive any starter of your choice for free! Just when you thought my mushroom soup couldn't get any better ;)
The Galaxy Life app also gives you access to spa treatment deals (yes, please!), 'Play' deals (like the Buy 4, Get 2 Free deal on the Escape Room), shopping discounts and the likes, as well as reviews of apps available for download from the Play Store, surprise rewards, and exclusive content from experts and celebrities.
Redemption is exceedingly easy with this app - simply search for the deal you want in the relevant section (they're broken up into Live, Entertain, Learn, Play, Connect, Work and Surprise), click on the deal you want, and when you order, show the deal to your waitress and click 'Redeem'. The waitress will then 'Verify' your redemption, and you're done! Free starter! :)
I have to admit, I was a little hesitant about purchasing a Samsung at first, but seeing the sheer volume of user friendly apps and features in my phone, coupled with the amazing benefits of being a Samsung user, I've come to be an extremely proud Samsung owner. If you're part of the club, download the Galaxy Life app today, and let me know what you think!
