Wanna know something about Julie's?

The above are just some of the types of biscuits sold under the brand Julie's on Dinasou.com. So, what's the dealio about Julie's?

According to its website, the brand Julie's, which is manufactured by PERFECT FOOD, the brand has been in the market since 1982. That's more than 30 years ago, which makes Julie's one of the oldest biscuit brands in the country. In June 2006, Perfect Food received a food standard certification from the British Retail Consortium. Although this was nearly 10 years ago, the fact that the company received recognition from an international body shows that Julie's is a well known brand outside of Malaysia.

Well, these are just a couple of facts that we could glean from the website. With such a popular brand that's readily available in most, if not all, supermarkets, hypermarkets and grocery stores across Malaysia, we at Dinasou.com want you to be able to purchase Julie's biscuits with just one click of the mouse from wherever you are. That's our motto: Grocery Shopping Made Easy! Buy Anywhere With One Click.

Brand Street: Bilan O'Polo watches

Dinasou.com wants you to know that we sell watches. And not just any brand of watches, but high quality ones that have Japanese movements and yet is a US brand. It's called BilanO'Polo. Have you popped into any watch store and seen the brand? Chances are, you may have. Yup, that's the one.

You can look up the brand's website to find out that it is a brand that has been in existence since 1995. Maybe not a lot of people have heard of BilanO'Polo as compared to, say, Patek Philippe. But both these brands sell high-quality watches. The difference is that a Patek Philippe watch may cost an arm and a leg, and then some, to the average Joe or Jane. But, the cost of a Bilan O'Polo watch is still within the range of what is considered affordable, yet at the same time offering the best quality there is, with its Japanese movements.

According to its website, Bilan O'Polo watches are designed with young people in mind. That is, the 18-35 demographic is the brand's target market. Therefore, the designs of Bilan O'Polo watches must suit this particular target group - stylish, young and sporty.

We've expanded the collection of BilanO'Polo watches on Brand Street to include women's watches as well. Check out the expanded line here.

Who doesn't love Dumplings?

We at Dinasou Online Supermart, Malaysia's 1st O2O Online Supermart with the motto "Grocery Shopping Made Easy", want to inform our members that we have a large variety of frozen food products. Since there so many products, we just focus on one type of frozen food for this entry, which is dumplings. Dinasou.com is pretty sure that many Malaysians love dumplings, although maybe a number of Malay and Indian people are not so familiar with this type of food. If one does a Google search, one would find that dumplings are basically small pieces of dough wrapped around a filling. They can be based on flour, potatoes or bread, and may include meat, fish, vegetables or sweets. They may be cooked by boiling, steaming, simmering or frying.

Well, for the Malays, we have something similar, which is the ubiquitous karipap. But karipap can only be fried, whereas dumplings can be cooked in a variety of ways as mentioned above. The Indians may have their samosa, but again, samosa is mostly fried, and its dough is actually a type of pastry. Dumplings is popular among the Chinese, but it doesn't mean that the Malays and Indians cannot enjoy them. Dinasou Online Supermart want to display the variety of dumplings sold at our company and below are the examples, with their accompanying information.

Brand Street: Huru White Coffee & Milk Tea

What's so great about Huru White Coffee & Milk Tea compared with the typical coffee and tea products, one may ask? For one, they contain Brown Rice, which is full of nutrients such as the Vitamin B group, in addition to minerals and amino acids. Another reason that Huru White Coffee & Milk Tea are good for your health is because they contain Tiger Milk Mushroom (TMM). The benefits of TMM include alleviating joint pain due to injury or in the elderly, as well as joint pain as a result of dengue fever and chikungunya. The ability to alleviate such pain is attributed to TMM's anti-inflammatory element.

Admit it, you want to try Huru out. But, you're afraid that they may not taste as good as other coffee and tea products. At Dinasou.com, we just want to say Shop, Earn & Save! At RM29.70 for 12 sachets of Huru White Coffee and 10 sachets of Huru Milk Tea, we say that ain't bad as they contain ingredients not readily available in most conventional coffee and tea products. So, go ahead. Give 'em a look here

Brand Street: MCM Belachan Sauce

Most Malaysians love belacan, or shrimp sauce, as a staple ingredient in one of Malaysia's iconic 'condiment', which is Sambal Ikan Bilis. Belacan gives a salty flavour and to make Sambal Ikan Bilis hot as most Malaysians love their food hot and spicy, one adds dried chillies and voila! A perfect condiment for one of Malaysia's popular dishes - Nasi Lemak. Dinasou.com would like to introduce its members to a new belacan sauce produced by Kum Thim Food Industries Sdn Bhd under the MCM brand, which is sold under Dinasou's Brand Street tab. What makes MCM Belachan Sauce any different from the typical shrimp paste or sauce that one buys from the grocery store? Well, for one, the ingredients in MCM Belachan Sauce is more varied than the typical shrimp paste, which is made up mainly from fermented ground shrimp mixed with salt, according to Wikipedia. The ingredients for MCM Belachan Sauce are dried shallots, garlic, dried shrimp, dried chillies, bird's eye chillies (which should add the 'kick' to this belacan sauce), lemongrass, ginger, sugar, salt and cooking oil. What really sets apart MCM Belachan Sauce from the rest is the addition of candlenut, or buah keras. If you really want to know how different is the taste, we at Dinasou suggests that you buy a bottle today and try it out for yourself. You never know, you might end up loving it! Oh oh, a certain fast food giant might be coming after us for using their slogan. Oh well, c'est la vie!

Snacks: Facts vs Taste ...

Everybody loves snacks. This is not a sweeping statement. Even those who abstains from junk food would occasionally buy a packet to munch on. But, here's a fact or two from webmd.com about junk food. Junk food is low in satiation value, which leads to over-eating. Simultaneously, they replace other, more nutritious food.

But, Dinasou.com is not encouraging you to eat more junk food. We only list down such facts with the hope that you will be educated in such issues. At the same time, we want you to know that we sell a wide range of snacks, such as the ones pictured above, and one or two of them are actually healthy.

Brand Street: Leven Virgin Forest Honey

Dinasou.com sells a number of goods from Merchants who have struck an agreement with us to sell their products online. One of these Merchants is a brand called Leven Virgin Forest Honey. The honey is 100% pure and comes from the rainforests of Borneo.

Leven wanted to make sure that they did not extract the honey from Borneo's rainforest giant honey bees without stepping within the boundaries of the indigenous people living in the vicinity. So, Leven struck a fairtrade agreement with the local people so that they can depend on producing the honey for their livelihood and Leven can also make sure that the surrounding tropical rainforests where these giant honey bees inhabit are under conservation.

Leven Virgin Forest Honey is produced under stringent conditions so that there will be zero contamination, and therefore is 100% pure and raw. In addition, it has no artificial flavours and additives. As Malaysia's 1st O2O online supermart, dinasou.com wants to ensure its members that it will only sell quality goods such as Leven Virgin Forest Honey.
