If you’ve ever envisioned being greeted by robots in every restaurant you enter, sit tight because that future might be close- starting with Pizza Hut, Sunway Pyramid.

As the world rapidly propels itself into a technology-driven future, Pizza Hut does as well, but with a twist. It maintains the same heart and depth that it was born with, all to ensure that customers enjoy a quality dining experience. After all, what is a meal if it lacks heart?

So what’s so great about this change, you ask? Allow us to illustrate.

Adorable, shiny R2D2s to greet you

Well, maybe not R2D2, but we weren’t kidding about the robots! Created to instill a lively atmosphere, these robots are here to bust the perception that a fully digitalised experience is cold and uncaring. Quite the opposite!

Equipped with advanced technology, you’ll be able to interact and even play with these cuties the next time you visit Pizza Hut, Sunway Pyramid. How’s that for neat, huh?

Faster, more accurate orders

Ever got mad when the waiter got your order wrong? Now that Pizza Hut servers are armed with tablets, this is a heck of a lot less likely to happen.

Plus, it also means that the kitchen will receive your order a lot faster too.

Digital Take Away Kiosks

Can’t be bothered to wait in line for your turn at the cashier? Then these babies are your saviours. You’ll be able to make orders and pay more quickly- no more of that bothersome waiting when all you want is to get your order down.

Augmented reality menu

If you think the smell of freshly baked pizzas is the only thing there to tease your hunger, think again. Customers will also get to experience an augmented reality menu, where the food is seemingly brought to life while they select their dishes.

Man, it’s enough to make you wish you brought a few extra Ringgit with you.

Now you can game at Pizza Hut, not just in front of your PS4

After you’ve made your order at the digital take away kiosk, you can keep yourself entertained by playing a digital game! So there’s no need to cross your arms and grumble while waiting for your order. Pizza Hut has taken care of that for you.

Ordering with just a click

As if their fully digitalised store wasn’t enough, Pizza Hut decided to go ahead and launch its very own mobile app. With its built-in features, the popular pizza chain makes mobile ordering convenient and oh-so-worth-it.

Here’s how:

  • The app remembers the customer’s past order and preferences, including previous delivery address
  • It can detect the customer’s location and literally make ordering as simple as a click
  • Customers can also check on the delivery status to see how soon their orders will arrive
  • With every order, customers are awarded pizza points. These can be redeemed for free side dishes, drinks and even pizzas

Honestly speaking, all we’re hearing are upsides to this. Convenient and instilled with the same heart we’ve always known Pizza Hut for, there is no reason not to check out this new digital concept store.

Especially since we Malaysians just love food. We can already taste the pizzas.

Talk about taking the adage “Waste not, want not” to the next level. As part of an effort to highlight the problem of food wastage, a small-batch ice-cream chain from Portland, Oregan called Salt & Straw took the unconventional approach of creating ice-cream… made from food waste. Yum!

Now, before you turn up your nose and gag at the thought, take a gander at this flavour they had on their limited edition menu: sweet, spiced-rum-flavoured ice-cream that is drizzled with gloriously warm brown apple butter.

That doesn’t sound so bad now, does it? In all honesty, it sounds sinfully delicious.

But wait a minute. That can’t be hygienic.

Don’t freak out. When we say “food waste”, we don’t mean Salt & Straw picked the ingredients off kitchen floors and out of dumpsters. Perish the thought!

When we say “food waste”, we mean perfectly edible food that might have otherwise ended up in the trash. You get us? See, it’s not that bad!

As an example, let us take a look at how they created that spiced-rum-flavoured ice-cream.

The spices used to create flavoured liquor come from Portland’s Eastside Distilling. And according to Fast Company, “Salt & Straw will re-steep the rum-soaked spices in cream, then ribbon in the caramelized apple butter made from bruised apples that were destined to be tossed.”

So it’s all good.

Why does it matter, though? It’s just a couple of bruised apples.

To us, it might just be a couple of bruised apples, but to the entire world, it is part of the staggering approximate 1.3 billion tonnes of food that is wasted every year. That is a lot of food!

To zero in on just how serious this is, that is about 1/3 of the food produced every year, wasted.  And the reality is, more than enough food is produced every year to feed all the people in the world.

This isn’t just bad news for them, but for our environment as well, since excess food production also means more greenhouse gas emissions.

So take note of the message that Salt & Straw tried to send out. It is time that we do our part by making better decisions and ensuring there is less waste at a household level. The same goes to food companies as well. We might be a small part of a bigger picture, but every little bit counts!

Let’s save the planet; one bruised apple at a time.

There appears to be no downsides to tea. Google its benefits and you’ll find a seemingly endless list of all the wonderful things it can do for you. This ought to come as to no surprise, as it has been regarded as a key ingredient to good health for thousands of years.

On the other hand, results from research done on these so-called benefits are mixed.

Still, with the rise of health-related concerns during this day and age, we’ll take all the help we can get.

Here are just a couple of the benefits you could get from this world-popular beverage:

Tea contains antioxidants

For those who are unaware, antioxidants can help slow down ageing as well as assist your cells to regenerate and repair. Which is especially good news for those who are worried about those Godforsaken age-betraying lines, amirite?

Studies also suggest that tea can help protect you from damage caused by pollution.

Tea helps keep your skin clear

If you’re plagued with acne problems, you might want to give green tea a try. It has been said that the antioxidants in green tea help ensure a spotless complexion, and that they can work as well as the much harsher 4% solution of benzoyl peroxide.

Tea has less caffeine than coffee

Which is awesome news for those of you who are worried about the amount of stress that caffeine can have on your system. So if you need a bit of a pick-me-up without those jittery side-effects of coffee, you can give tea a try.

(Green) tea helps boost your metabolism

This in turn means it could help you lose weight. While green tea can only give you a slight boost by allowing you to burn 70-80 calories a day, every little bit helps.

Tea is calorie-free

Unless you choose to add in milk, sugar or other sweeteners, tea itself is virtually calorie-free. This makes it a more attractive alternative to water, especially for those who love having some flavour in their drink.

Tea can lower your blood sugar level

Thanks to its dose of catechin and polysaccharides, tea is known for helping lower blood sugar levels. Studies suggest that green tea is especially beneficial for those with type 2 diabetes, as compounds found in it can assist diabetics to process sugar.

Tea may help protect your bones

As it turns out, milk isn’t the only beverage out there that can help strengthen your bones. Tea can do the same as well. Studies have shown that those who regularly drink tea have stronger bones than those who don’t. We don’t know about you, but we’re taking this as a good sign!

Tea may reduce your risk of cancer

Breast, skin, lung, stomach, colon, oral and prostate cancer… just to name a few. While more studies than not suggest that tea can help ward off cancer, it certainly doesn’t hurt to add it to your daily ritual.

Tea may reduce your risk of a heart attack

It has been said that regular green tea intake may significantly reduce your risk of a heart attack. In fact, a study published last year stated that those who drink 1-3 cups of green tea a day are 20% less likely to experience a heart attack, and those who drink four or more cups a day have a 32% reduction of risk.

Tea is linked with a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease

Green tea may help reduce the risk of this neurological disorder developing in both men and women.  That said, green tea is not a miracle cure-all, so be sure to maintain overall good health to better your chances at leading an anti-Parkinson’s disease life.
