Grand Opening of GARTIEN & Official Launch of Limited Edition MidAutumn Edition


Gartien had expanded from a humble heritage unit to double multi-storey units along the main road of Penang Road, next  to  the  famous   Kek   Sheng   Cafe   with   more   state-of-the-art equipments to cater to the ever increasing demands of its customer.  

Just for your extra info just in case you are  not  that  familiar  with  what  kind  of  business  is  it.  Gartien(小田佳園)   is   actually   a  company  set  up  by  a  Penangite,  using  our  homegrown resources aka the freshest pineapples from nearby plantations to bake  their  delightful  Gartien Pineapple Cakes.   It was an honor  for  me  to  be  invited  to  their  grand  opening  of  the  new Gartien and I felt grateful to be warm welcomed by the aromatic scent of the pineapple cakes at their store.

The grand opening of Gartien was officiated by YB Dr. Afif bin Bahardin, Pengerusi Pertanian & Industri Asas Tani, Pembangunan Luar Bandar dan Kesihatan,  witnessed  by  Joseph  Tan, Gartien’s Pastry Chef, YB Teh Lai Heng, State Assemblyman of KOMTAR, Tuan  Haji  Ahmad, Pengarah Pertanian Pulau Pinang, Dato Dr. Kenny Ong,  Group  Executive  Chairman  of  MTT Group of Companies and Mr. Lee See Hai, main supplier/partner.

Besides the ribbon cutting ceremony to officiate the opening, there were also the well known Chinese Culture Dance aka The Lion Dance to chase all bad omens away and bring in lots of luck and prosperity.

Variety of finger food and drinks were served to guests at the opening.

There's also a wall filled with polariods of happy customers, spot my bestie & me *winks* ;)

Simply took this because I like it since there's butterfly :P

Some finger food by Bamboo catering that are idly cute!  Fyi, I'm also a sucker for miniature food & let me tell you the crepe cake (not in the pic) served on that day were MM...not picture available because  I'm obviously too busy savouring and that is not the main focus. :P

Met pretty Crystal :)
It has been quite some time.

Nothing is as good as having friends to attend an event together.  Have been chit chatting throughout the event.

If you guys have been following my blog for certain time, you might have find this brand being mentioned and seem to be familiar with its name.  (I wonder how many people have but I have it but then memory of that time is only applicable to places that I could find nice FOOD & I'm serious about it :P)  One thing I  really like about Gartien is they have been  putting in effort to customize the design of their packaging. (I'm a sucker for packaging because if it is being meticulously packed, I personally think that it already won half of the heart of the consumers, agree?)   Here you go just in case you are interested to have a look at how the CNY packaging looks like.

The MidAutumn Edition of Gartien Pineapple Cakes.

There are 10 pieces of delectable pineapple cakes in the box and each pineapple cake is wrapped in a simple white and purple wrapper..
In order to produce the top notch and best ratio pineapple filling, the pineapple cubes are cooked for 12 hours till it turns golden which  will  make  up  to  the  juiciness  and  sweetness  of  its  fillings. Every bite you take, you feel the texture of the real pineapples.  The milky and buttery golden pastries are baked to perfection as it gives the light and fluffy feel (definitely the best of the best quality a pastry should have).  Absolutely love it to melt-in-mouth at each and every bite as its the together with its chunky/strips of pineapple filling once you bite till the core, heavenly concoction.

Each love bird will have a companion to make them a pair of love birds.  Don't you guys think that this sort of theory could also be applicable to savour food?  What?  You guys think that I am going to tell you a love story, paiseh as I have no inspiration for that yet. :P  So lets just come back to the main point = food = finding the other half for Gartien Pineapple Cakes to savour it in the most pleasurable way.
It  is  highly  suggested  for  you  guys  to  enjoy  this  snack  with  an  unsweetened  teas  of your preference to maximize your satisfaction. ;)  Now you know  it, a  bite  of  pineapple  cake and a sip of tea, definitely a perfect blend.

It's time to Detox with TruDtox

Sponsored Post

As we all know it is the durian season in Malaysia around the mid year and according to the chinese (not being bias or what I am just telling you guys from what I have been told or experience), durian or also well known for being the king of all fruits due to it's exoticism and extraordinary pungent smell.  Besides that, the Chinese also believes that one should not consume durian with alcohol or mutton or other food which will increase the body temperature level or else the gaseous formed may endanger one's life.  Those may be myths but here are some facts about durians.  The first one is feasting this high fruit will certainly not benefit your waistline!  Stumbled upon an article and found that durian actually couold reach till 1500 calories depending on its size.  Not only that durains are also packed with carbohydrates which is why it should be consumed in moderation.  Feeling guilty for feasting?

Worry not as here comes your saviour!  TruDtox is Swiss natural and organic botanical tea that WORKS GENTLY to cleanse and help strengthen our body’s own natural detox organs. It is made of 100% organically-cultivated herbs, flora and teas that are traditionally known to help our body detoxify.  TruDtox™ does not contain harsh laxatives and as such, will not create bowel dependency. 

 Flush away toxins & waste 
 Promote regularity 
 Relieve digestive discomforts 
 Promote better absorption of nutrients 
 Improve metabolism 
 Strengthen immune system 
Promote health, vitality & energy 

Direction of Use: 
Brew tea bag in a hot cup of water for 20-30 minutes. The effect may vary due to water temperature 
and brewing duration. 
How long does it take for TruDtox to work? 
Within the first hour of consumption, you will tend to urinate more often. After 5 – 10 hours, some may feel a minor urge of bowel movement. It may take longer hours for others.  You can choose to take it before you sleep or after you wake up. With TruDtox, you can roughly plan when you want to visit the toilet. 

Trudtox retails at RM29.50 for a pack of 5 teabags and RM88.50 for a pack of 15+2 teabags
TruDtox is available in most leading pharmacies such as Caring, Watsons, Guardian, Alpha, Alpro, Healthlane, Vitacare etc as well as independence pharmacies nationwide. 
TruDtox is also available online in 

Personal experience after consuming is it made me wanna pee more often and don't feel so bloated after meals but I somehow drank it not more than thrice as of now as I kind of dislike the taste even tough it is just pure herbs.   Also gave my mum and aunt to try it but both of them ended up visiting the toilet more often than usual which totally oppose my experience.  Perhaps this is just different body reacting differently, though consuming the same sachet of tea, effects may vary.

Will be back as soon as I surpassed this mad week.  I'm sincerely sorry but as of now I really have to start minimizing the times of outings or hangouts to cope with my matters (not only academics) as finals is approaching in less than a month I presumed.  So sorry for the need to have  a commercial break in the mean time as I really want to save the best things for last.  Therefore, my personal postings like how I have celebrated my 20th birthday, thoughts and whatsoever random stuff will be up lol asap, anticipating to chillax and have fun in September!!! :(

Sun of a Beach ~ Sports Sunblock

Sponsored Post

I'm sure most of you out there have already known the existence of sunblock and why is it a must to have one nowadays especially if you tend to expose to the direct sun often.  The main reason is definitely to prevent you to being barbecued by the sun rays.  It may not provide a total protection but then at least it could act as a shield to provide some coverage to prevent the harmful ultraviolet rays (UV) to penetrate straight into your skin.  

So here is a homegrown product by Sun of a Beach.  I have got the one specially formulated for sports which have SPF 50 which could also be used if I were to swim (as if I do lol).  Honestly speaking I have not really have the chance to put it for a good use yet as I have been a couch potato lately due to the need to non stop clearing my tasks but I do tried it on for daily basis.

· Broad Spectrum Protection from UVA & UVB
· SPF 50
· Blend of crisp & cool refreshing fragrance.

+ Moisturizing Shea Butter
+ Hexylresolcinol that helps to lighten dark spots while promoting a smooth & even skin tone. 

Here's how it looks on skin, it is not the type that I have been using before, super white and was rather opaques but this one is sheer and luminous which is definitely something I would opt for on the go.  Whats more when it could actually not only be used on the body but it is safe to be used from head to toe which definitely mend for me (that type of lazy bum who always prefer multi function or all-in-one product).

To sum up : Personally I'll give this product 4/5 stars

Stylish/sporty packaging
Non-sticky consistency
The scent
Kinda makes my skin illuminates slightly 

As of now I don't have any yet as I have only used it on daily basis but not for some outdoor strenuous activities yet which is what it is said to mend for. 

Take note: Do reapply it after every 2 hours or when you undergo excessive perspiring.
