It's been terribly hot the past few days right?????? Can you believe it? I am STILL not use to the Malaysian weather since coming back from Hawaii. If you are wondering..
"isn't the Malaysian weather similar to the weather in Hawaii'?
The answer to that question is a resounding NO! Hawaii actually has a winter where you get to see the drop in temperature..I wouldn't dare to go to the beach if I were you during that time..you will most likely be freezing in your bikini!!! And the sight of hair standing on ends is definitely not a sight you want!
Anyway, back to the topic... I was thanking my lucky stars when I was invited to the launch of the Haagen Dazs Ice cream smoothie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't miss it for the world because I am IN LOVE with ice cream(if I could choose, I would say ice cream is my favourite food, but it's not technically a type of food right?), particularly Haagen Dazs since I was a child... Yes, high maintenance I know...eeeppp!!!! But just for Ice cream....*promise*
The huge ice cream fondue sign at the door caught my eye already!!! *wipes sweat of my brow*
Greeted by the friendly staff of Brandthink! I was attracted to their colorful attire! I DID not know that the dress code was Summer dresses...... again... another embarrassment! *Blush*
Note to self: Start reading invitations properly!!
The event kickstarted with Fay Hokulani hosting the event..... Loving her purple dress!!!!
And then................. suprise suprise!!!! An ice cream show??? Models are basically parading the two new summer flavours! These two lovely models in pink were displaying the Raspberry and Summer Berries Smoothie Flavour!
And these models in sunshine yellow were displaying the Mango and Apricot ice cream smoothie flavour
The line up of stunning models and their ice cream....boo hoo! I finally understood why summer dresses!!!
Your ice cream smoothie flavour UP CLOSE and PERSONAL!
And then HEAVEN begins............
First, we had Summer Romance(RM32)... Ooh La La! This creation consisted of each scoop of their latest Haagen Daaz smoothie flavours served with complimenting sorbet flavours...see that little red scoop in between?Plus, it's drizzled with fresh fruits, Aloe Vera cubes and fruit slices! REFRESHING!!!!!!
Yes, Ash and I were so hooked on it, we basically emptied the plate in seconds??????
My all time favourite creation would be Endless Summer(29) which consisted of scoops of Raspberry and summer berries smoothie, mango and apricot smoothie, macadamia nut brittle and green tea ice cream served with their respective toppings in miniature glasses! Why it is my favourite? It's a great blend of sour and sweet! You can start with the most sour ones first working your palates to the sweeter scoops of ice cream after:)
Ash with the green tea flavoured one...yummy!!!
It's all mine!!!!!!!!!!!
Now for the third creation I really liked....... Summer Eclipse(RM29). There are four sccops of ice cream consisting of the two ice cream smoothie flavours, mango andc raspberry sorbet and macadamia nut briuttle served with fruits, waffle chips and whipped cream! This creation is simple yet fulfills an ice cream lovers crave!!!!!!
Slurping the Jamaican Dance(RM28) up quickly!!!! Thanks John for the awesome pic of me looking greedy!!!
I would say this is an extremely healthy smoothie! Great pick up after half a day's work? it's basically a blend of Mango and apricot smoothie, mango sorbet and FRESH FRUITS like strawberry kiwi(ooh, exotic), and green apple.
All our post ice cream pictures!! As you can tell, all of us were happy campers for the day!!!
What delighted me about the whole event was that....Haagen Dazs was very generous with their ice cream. Our table had endless amounts of ice cream creations and beverages literally flowing in...once a particular dish is empty, the waiters will bring us another one!!!!!!! And THAT is what I call CLASSY!I thoroughly dislike events or people who stinge on food!!!
The "Mango and Apricot" and "Raspberry and Summer berries" ice cream smoothie flavours are limited edition flavours. All the above creations shown were also placed in their limited edition menu...which means...everything shown will be taken away after the end of July!!! So.....HURRY guys!!! Go and try all these new flavours and dine in creations before it ends!!!!!!!!!!! Trust me on this..I am an ice cream fanatic! If it is NOT good, I won't recommend it..Plus, you can't go too far wrong with Haagen Dazs *winks*
