KFC Mauritius has launched its new website

A few months back, I blogged about fast food in Mauritius and did a small comparison between KFC and McDonalds in Mauritius. The fast food war was horrible and took many lives, but in the end, justice prevailed. The outline is that fast food in Mauritius is the complete opposite of the situation in other major countries such as European nations and the US. Basically, it means that KFC Mauritius is crap while McDonalds is excellent, and both are in almost the same price range.

KFC Mauritius

KFC Mauritius recently launched their website which is available at Obviously, since this relates to both Mauritius and the Internet, it is downright impossible for this to go unmentioned on the world's greatest Mauritius-related blog (which is why you should bookmark it and share it with your friends).

This new website is great news for KFC-lovers (99.5% of the Mauritian population) around Mauritius as it has a lot of useful information, including menus, store locations, and a whole load of finger-lickin' crap. It also has a games section, which is a huge waste of space. I'm hoping McDonalds also launch a website for their Mauritius branches since their menu is more exhaustive and I know a lot of Mauritians know absolutely nothing them.

Overall, it's a neat website but it does suffer from a couple of serious flaws. The one thing I absolutely hate about the KFC Mauritius website is that its integration of Facebook comments into the website is quite poor. The website itself uses red (KFC official colors) while the Facebook background is white, which leads to a vicious clash of colors. They are also using the non-vanity Facebook Page URLs in their footer, which is a really poor decision as it needs to be redirected to the vanity URL once someone clicks on it.

Finally, the whole website is in French when Mauritians are more inclined to perform online searches in English. Ideally, the whole website should have been in English or it should have included both an English and a French versions. Funnily enough, the website, which was launched a couple of weeks ago, is barely visible in search engines even for brand name searches as shown in the screenshot below (although this situation is likely to change thanks to this post - you're welcome, KFC!).

Not so finger-lickin' good!

Hell, even this blog is faring better for many KFC Mauritius-related searches, which is why you should keep sharing it.

Engen Extravaganza results - 2017

I know a lot of people are still looking for the Engen Extravaganza results 2017, so I did some sleuthing.

Behold (click on the image for a larger version):

A few notes:
Yes, the ticket numbers are really small on the artwork. I can't do anything about that.Engen seem to be experts at doing a huge marketing campaign around their extravaganza and being quiet about the lucky draws.The guys at Engen Bagatelle have nothing to do with the marketing and the lucky draw, so don't be dicks. If you have something to complain about, direct your comments to the Engen head office.

Mauritius newspapers online

This is a list of the main newspapers in Mauritius as well as their websites. I suspect that this will mainly be of use to Mauritian expatriates since it is more customary for people in Mauritius to actually buy their newspapers (turns out the feel of paper in their hands is that important). This Mauritian newspaper list will also be helpful for those who wish to tour all the newspapers on any given day.
Le Défi Le Défi is the most popular newspaper in Mauritius. While it was originally only published on Saturdays, its rapid popularity has seen the group expand into several publications.

These different newspapers include:
Le Défi Quotidien - which, as its name implies, comes out every day (except weekends)
Le Défi Plus - is published on Saturdays only
Défi Sexo - a newspapers that deals with sexuality and is a half-assed attempt to get easy sales by exploiting the sexual frustrations present in a big portion of the Mauritian population (which, you know, eventually leads to sexual assaul…

Where to buy a PlayStation 4 in Mauritius

I recently got a PlayStation 4 because my PlayStation 3 died out on me. There are not many games I'm looking to play but I figured it would be easier to just go for the PS4 since I watched my blurays (including 3D) on my PS3. I figured I would buy a PS4 instead of a normal bluray player as the PS4 has tons of nice features including Netflix which is now available in Mauritius.

I checked through most stores around Mauritius before I finally got a PlayStation 4 and these are my conclusions:

Don't buy your new console in major outlets such as Galaxy. The consoles are very expensive there. Sure, you get a game or two in the bundle, but it is almost always cheaper to get the console and the game separately. In many cases, you get crap games anyway. Considering how expensive the games can be, you don't want to end up with crap ones.Cellbest and One O One have the best prices. Depending on your haggling skills, you can even knock the One O One price a bit.I hear MicroMania is grea…
