Event: Honey Creme Hartamas Grand Opening

ATTENTION!

Fun and healthy organic premium soft-serve ice cream Honey Creme finally sets foot in Klang Valley!

Dessert connoisseurs in the Klang Valley can rejoice as the organic premium soft-serve ice cream brand, Honey Creme, which won over a cult-following in several other countries has finally set foot in a local food haven, Desa Sri Hartamas.


Ice creams have always been stigmatized as unhealthy and nutritionally deficient but indulging in Honey Creme does not have to be frowned upon and reserved only for diet cheat days. Specially handcrafted with premium organic ingredients from all over the world including South Koreas top organic milk and creams, Honey Crèmes soft serve can be a healthier option with nutritional toppings like raw honeycomb, organic mixed grains, heart-healthy dark chocolate or simply the sinfully indulgent choice of popcorn or cotton candy toppings. 

The creative team behind every cuppa and cone you get here :)


Here's some of the choices available here :) 
Honey Comb Soft Serve

The Honeycomb Soft Serve, crowned with a golden chunk of raw honey comb is truly a sight to behold and a delight to the palate. According to Honey Creme, raw honeycomb provides a natural sweetness, omitting the need for artificial sugar sweeteners. Novelty aside, these golden nuggets are a nutritional powerhouse, prized as a health tonic since ancient times. Sourced from the prestige bee farms globally, Honey Cremes inclusion of raw honeycomb adds a variety of minerals, trace elements, amino acids, enzymes and other health giving properties into each serving of delectable soft serve. This healthy dessert topping is a firm favourite with celebrity Victoria Song from Korean band f(x).

Popcorn


 Organic cotton candy affogato

A must-try for coffee aficionados is the Affogato Soft-Serve. Creamy honey cream accented by drizzles of strong aromatic espresso gives off a bittersweet sensation that is bound to please coffee lovers. The sight of warm espresso, cascading over cold signature soft serve is a comforting juxtapose for tired souls needing a pick-me-up. 

Cone Honeycomb

 Cone popcorn

The caramelized Popcorn option brings the adventurous taste of soft, yet crunchy American corn and Honey Creme into one synergistic burst of flavours that will leave you begging for more. Crisp, crunchy caramel capped around Honey Cremes light creamy soft serve are like resplendent lights on a snowy top.


Cone organic Cotton candy

If you're feeling wistful or dreamy, a twist of cotton candy made from the finest organic sugar on your treat will only serve to evoke sweet childhood memories whilst leaving a delectable taste on your tongue. Unlike the usual colour-infused cottony treat, Honey Cremes fluffy white version does not contain any artificial colouring and flavouring. Sweet cotton candy studded with specks of Italian pink rock salt is a play of contrast on the tastebuds. Light and airy white spun sugar on a bed of velvety cool soft serve will leave you feeling light-hearted, as if you have walked through the clouds. 


Made to cater to Asian taste-buds, Honey Cremes organic premium soft serve has a fluffy, light velvety texture and creamy milky taste with slight salty undertones, unlike conventional ice creams which can be too creamy or artificially sweet and rich.Honey Creme is a Korean-style premium organic soft-serve ice cream brand, conceived through a fruitful Korean-Taiwanese business partnership. Its unique flavours and topping combinations can be credited to the ingenious health-conscious Korean partners while their Taiwanese allies are the marketing maestros behind Honey Cremes cult following. Honey Creme has been enjoying brisk sales in countries such as home country Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Indonesia. 

Local Artist Yumi Wong was there too showing support to the Grand Opening of Honey Creme

It boast an International championship golf course, the Water World Theme Park, Animal World Safari, Cowboy Town, Resort Hotel, Condotel and Villas.  

Now, it's even better with the recently opened Freeport A'Famosa Outlet. It is now a more complete holiday destination catering to all different ages.




During the opening, celebrity bloggers such as Xandria Ooi, Bangsar Babe, Heidi and Nanabwincess were also invited to witness the ever happening outlet here at A'Famosa and to share some shopping tips with us :) 

Take Home shopping tips that I got from the day:

1. It's always good to shop during SALES! especially when you're on a tight budget.
2. Invest on clothing which is versatile and practical. 






40 lucky bloggers were picked and chosen to be given the privilege participate in the "Style on a Shoestring Contest". The 40 bloggers were divided into 2 groups namely the " Stylish" and the "Casual". We were given RM 350 and 2 hours of shopping time to style ourselves according to our theme.


Here's what I have:


Blue Denim Shirt + Brown Shorts from Cotton On: RM78
Shoes from Clarks: RM200


Freeport A'Famosa Outlet has officially opens its door to eager bargain hunting customers on the 5th December 2015. The outlet village offers over 60 fashion, sport and accessories brands in some 180,000 sq. ft. The outlet is set in an open air mall featuring a lake, fountains, carousel and windmill with architecture loosely themed on Malacca's Dutch heritage. 




The outlet is located close by the Alor Gajah toll on the North-South Expressway making it easily accessible for its patrons. The outlet provides more than 1,500 free car parking spaces. 



Brands open at the centre include Nike, Cotton On, Esprit, PUMA, G2000, Carlo Rino, Clarks, Forever 21, Samsonite, Folli Follie, Sacoor Brothers and new brands will be open in the coming weeks. Phase II offering another 40 shops is expected in 2016.



The village follows the success of outlet centres in Johor Bahru and another near KLIA airport which have demonstrated that the outlet concept is a big hit with the Malaysian Shopper. The Freeport A'Famosa is a joint venture between UK based outlet specialist Freeport Retail Ltd and Langkah Sdn Bhd, the owners of the adjacent A'Famosa Resort.



 With the opening of Freeport A'Famosa Outlet @ Malacca, we can easily keep up with the current fashion without having to burn a "hole" in our pocket! However, if you're planning to come visit over this weekend, I would personally suggest you to come early before the crowd :) 

but Hey!

HAHA!
