A month into the business of delivering lunch boxes

Its been a month since starting this healthy lunch box business and I must say I am overwhelmed by the response I get from the orders and feedback from customers (some good and some bad) РI take all feedback constructively as I believe its the only way to grow and become better. Overall I know there is definitely a demand for healthier meals in KL.  Even amongst my friends, almost 70% of them in KL are either hitting the gym, going on a low carbohydrate diet or just limiting their visits to the mamak stalls. People know that a healthier lifestyle means eating well and burning off those unwanted calories.

Just this week, I was interviewed by BFM (Business FM) and it was a major joy getting my first media appearance with my favourite radio station. Listening to their radio station every time I drive and suddenly being asked to go on air is like a smile on your face you can’t get rid of. I took the opportunity to explain to the listeners on how I combined my food science degree with my passion, hence the birth of Chopstick Diner. You can listen to the podcast here¬† http://www.bfm.my/open-for-business-ili-sulaiman-dish-by-ili-elaine-ho-chopstick-diner.html

Also, over the weekend The Malay Mail Online published an article on their interview with me. I have been a regular contributor to The Malay Mail Online for the past 1 year. They publish one of my recipes almost every week under their Eat and Drink section, all of which you can find under the “Recipes For You”section on www.chopstickdiner.com. For the interview The Malay Mail Online had with me, you can read it here http://www.themalaymailonline.com/eat-drink/article/chopstick-diner-lunchbox-a-salad-delivery-for-the-healthy-eater

We’re off to a good start. Thanking each and every one of you for your support

On the menu next week (Week Commencing 1 Sept 2014)

As the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad is a favourite amongst many, I decided to revamp the dish a little by replacing the Grilled Chicken with Smoked Salmon. Smoked Salmon has always been one of my favourite snacks to have, and it makes a great dish when eaten with my leafy greens.

The Smoked Salmon we are getting is from Norway and I only want the best for my customers. The smokiness from this product is the reason why I chose it for our menu next week.

Smoked salmon is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids, known to prevent cardiovascular illnesses. It also contains Potassium, Selenium and Vitamin B12. I highlight the fact that it contains Selenium, as this mineral has antioxidant properties known to protect cells from being damaged. Which increase your Selenium intake to prevent yourself from cancers such as prostrate cancer.

Why think twice about eating something good for you and tasty?

 

NOTE: We will take in orders for Tues (2nd Sept 2014) onwards

 

 

Working with The Star yonks ago

I’m naturally quite a shy person, so if you put me in front of the camera I tend to stutter or have to repeat myself over, just to say the right thing. So when The Star interviewed me a few years ago, it took a lot of courage to say “Yes, I’ll do this” and step outside my comfort zone. In fact I was sitting in the car for about half an hour practicing what I was going to say.
It was so nice of Mr Food from Village Grocer, Bangsar Village to allow us to do the short interview at their premise.

 

WELCOME!!

I’m so excited to be launching my website, where ordering your lunchboxes will be much easier.

I will continue to ensure healthy and fresh lunchboxes gets to on time when you order.

In the meantime, take care and ensure you feed your body with good, nutritious food everyday!
