This led to the opening of our premium concept store CzipPlus in 2023, and finally, the unveiling of our flagship store in Bangsar Village II this year.""At CzipLee, we're not just opening a new outlet, we're returning to our roots. Our decision to launch CzipLee in Bangsar Village II was inspired by our deep-rooted connection to the Bangsar community and our desire to create a space where creativity thrives."CzipLee has long been synonymous with quality stationery, artistic treasures, and a passion for nurturing creativity. With the launch of its flagship outlet, CzipLee aims to reinvigorate the essence of its iconic Bangsar store while embracing a modernised heritage concept that seamlessly blends tradition with innovation.Now boasting a total of four outlets, including its first establishment in Kajang, the renowned CzipLee Southkey in Johor, and the premium concept store, CzipPlus located at Jalan Telawi, CzipLee continues to serve its diverse clientele with distinction.What’s New In StoreThe new store showcases a meticulously curated assortment of stationery delights, office essentials, and artistic gems sourced from across European and Asian continents.

Incorporating upcycled materials from former CzipLee stores, the design preserves heritage while embracing innovation, creating a unique ambiance that transports patrons back to the atmosphere of the then-CzipLee Bangsar store and traditional stationery shops.“Notably, the payment counter out front mirrors the service style of a ‘Sekolah Kebangsaan,’ ensuring upfront and efficient customer service. We upcycled the signature medicine drawers and updated the countertop to suit the modern retro feel from our Southkey, Johor outlet, adding a touch of nostalgia to our establishment. We also prioritized sustainability efforts by upcycling the existing lights from the previous tenant to make the center of the store mirror that of natural lighting, akin to a retro courtyard."“In support of our artistic community, we have also upcycled Drewfunk’s art piece, which used to be a central feature at our other concept stores. We also invited Nestwo to create a graffiti crane for this store,” added Alvin Chen.Most Child-Friendly Store in CzipLee’s HistoryWith a focus on inclusivity, the store features a children-friendly atmosphere characterized by playful tiles and vibrant color schemes, inviting children and families to explore and enjoy the space together.“We hope to create family-friendly cardboard play areas within the mall, inspired by artisan craftsmen.”“The cardboard theme is already being implemented in our children’s section, which has seen good traction amongst families as it is something out of the ordinary,” said Jason Chen.Furthermore, the collaboration extends to The Melaka Chetti Kitchen, represented by the Melaka Chetti Heritage Association of Malaysia (MCHAM). Committed to preserving the rich legacy of the Melaka Chetti community, MCHAM spreads awareness about their history, culture, and traditions.Roy Anandthan Padiachee, Project Director of The Melaka Chetti Kitchen and Deputy President of the Melaka Chetti Heritage Association of Malaysia (MCHAM) expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "This collaboration with CzipLee presents an invaluable opportunity to showcase the culinary heritage of the Melaka Chetti community and celebrate our shared cultural richness. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to CzipLee for their partnership and friendship in printing our 'The Melaka Chetti Kitchen' culinary book, which serves as a precious repository of our unique culinary legacy."For a limited time, ‘The Melaka Chetti Kitchen’ culinary book is available at CzipLee Bangsar Village II at the special price of RM159.90."With CzipLee in Bangsar Village II, we aim to create more than just a store.

Much more than a mere game, Mahjong is akin to the significance of chess in Western culture. It embodies tradition, leisure, and the spirit of unity that binds communities together.Zeen Chang, Managing Partner of Bai Chuan Management, reflects on the symbolism embedded within Mahjong, stating, "The intricate Mahjong game, requiring a various mix of tiles to form unique combinations, serves as a metaphor for our nation's strength in diversity and unity, something Kwai Chai Hong is always passionate about."Collaborating with local artists Wong Jia Min and Lee Chaer Shean from plus + plus, Kwai Chai Hong brings to life a magnificent Mahjong game set amidst the bustling streets. The centerpiece, adorned with Mahjong panels and wire mesh, intricately crafts the silhouette of a dragon, symbolizing hope, prosperity, and renewal in the Year of the Dragon.*(Standing L2R) Managing Partners of Bai Chuan Management, Zeen Chang, Terrence Liew, Wee Ho, and CocoLew, and (Seated L2R) plus + plus artist duo Wong Jia Min and Lee Chaer Shean at Kwai Chai Hong’s latest Chinese New Year installation, “Rise of the Dragon 蟄龍覺醒”. Drawing inspiration from the dynamic movement of reshuffling Mahjong tiles, plus + plus creates an installation that mirrors the act of resetting the year—a fresh beginning symbolizing prosperity, union, harmony, and peace for the new year.Wong explains, "The Mahjong panels and wire mesh collectively craft the silhouette of a Dragon, awakening from its long slumber as winter ends and soaring the skies, representing hope for a better and more prosperous beginning in the Year of the Dragon."Echoing Wong's sentiments, Lee emphasizes that the installation goes beyond mere artistry—it's a tangible representation of hope, inviting individuals to embrace a new life chapter as they welcome the Year of the Dragon.Chang further remarks, "Rise of the Dragon 蟄龍覺醒 is aptly named for installation to represent the beast which has hibernated long and has finally gathered enough strength to take on the new year with renewed vitality and power."Indeed, just as each Mahjong game begins with the rhythmic mixing of tiles, symbolizing the ascension of the Dragon's spirit from its slumber, Kwai Chai Hong stands proud as a beacon of cultural preservation and revival.Kwai Chai Hong welcomes visitors daily from 9 AM to 12 AM, offering a journey through time and tradition.

The bar, inspired by the stone age and elegantly engraved with the restaurant's name, presents handcrafted cocktails and mocktails meticulously designed to complement the culinary offerings seamlessly.ALVA KL be described in one word: breathtaking. The gods seemed to smile upon us as the sun dipped into a golden hue of orange and red before disappearing into a mesmerizing violet descent.Now, let's delve into the culinary delights. We were treated to an assortment of meticulously crafted highlights that surpassed all expectations. Unlike the usual scenario where a restaurant with a view relies on visual appeal alone, ALVA offers a distinct experience.For starters, the TRUFFLE CHIPS were thinly sliced, striking a balance between playful and impactful, with just the right touch of truffle—thankfully not overwhelming, unlike some places that tend to go overboard. The nachos were decent, appropriately loaded with beef—neither drowning nor oversaturated. An additional appetizer, charred corn topped with chicken lard, emerged as a favorite highlight. The tiger pop (tiger prawns) showcased impeccable battering, allowing the textured meat of the prawns to shine through. The scallops, paired with yam toast, deserved accolades, providing a burst of joy in every bite. The spinach risotto with cuttlefish and the Garlic butter Spaghetti held their ground, complementing each other seamlessly.* Truffle Chips *Amazing Nachos*Tiger Prawn Poppers*Seared U.S Scallops*Spinach Risotto with Thai Grilled CuttlefishMoving on to the entrees, while the LAMB RIBS were deemed mediocre, it's a matter of preference, as the sauce was masterfully crafted. The true star of the show was THE MISO COD, presented in a bowl adorned with lotus inspiration—a perfect symphony for the most divine COD ever tasted. It evoked a sense of awe reminiscent of witnessing a breathtaking sunset.* Australian Lamb Short Ribs*Atlantic Cod with Fragrant Lotus Leaf*Garlic Prawn Pasta Desserts were equally impressive: the Coconut Panna Cotta with gula melaka paired perfectly with the Above the Cloud TIRAMISU.* Dessert : From left -Coconut Panna Cotta and Above the Cloud Tiramisu. To conclude, the bubbly Luc Belaire Lux & Rose added a touch of panache and sophistication, concluding the meal with just the right amount of class.
