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.
