Just Heavenly Pleasures Launch

As 23 June arrived, us floggers were glad to be invited to Just Heavenly Pleasures' launch. Arriving near to 3 pm, there was already a crowd and Jackson, Jason and I tried to look out for familiar faces. We spotted Kampung Boy and City Gal and soon there it was again, another floggers' gathering of some sort right there itself at JHP! Boolicious of Masak-Masak & Splashie Boy, Fat Boy Bakes, Lyrical Lemongrass & Bald Eagle, Joe The Craver & Nicole were all there too. We also managed to meet some new floggers; Pam of Foodyumz, Swee San of A Self-proclaimed Foodaholic, Soo Yin of sooyindotcom, her friend who doesn't blog but loves to take photographs, Mavis and Sugar & Spice of Masala Heaven.

Of course, Nigel and Allan were busy tending to guests and to the event itself. At one point, Nigel was getting a bit nervous as he was going to give a speech. When the time came, he did just fine with Allan at his side.

My fellow "desserters", lend me your ears!

After his heartwarming speech, Allan also spoke briefly. The guests then were treated to a short but wonderful performance by The Wicked Pitches of which Nigel and Allan were members of before they had to take a hiatus.

The two cutest couples around, enjoying the show...Joe The Craver & Nicole and Kampung Boy & City Gal, (I seem to have distracted Kampung Boy though...hee hee!)

But of course, apart for some light finger food like fried wanton and chicken wings, JHP wouldn't be JHP if they didn't serve some of their usual goodies. This was the highlight of the event! Ha ha ha...

The lovely Key Lime Tarts...Not too sourish and a delight.

Here's the tinier version of the Choc Cheese Cake; one of my faves since my first visit to the store.

Profiteroles! They were yummy, furthermore they are now different to me since that night. LOL!

They were serving something different from the norm for their cold drinks, I was telling myself that it tasted like ginger. As I walked around, I notice these were on the shelf; Citrus Ginger bottles for sale. Nice and refreshing stuff!
Image00027
I forgot to ask Nigel/Allan was this was. Coffee beans? These were on sale on the shelves too.

I tried to take photos of this lovely SugarWorks creation by one of the staff of JHP but as you can see, Jackson and Jason decided to be funny at that time! :oP

Well, we stayed around for about 2 hours and took photos of mostly everything in sight! ROFL...That's the way it is with us bloggers/floggers! After taking photos of food, plants, flowers and people (with our new found flogger friends), we bid farewell to Nigel & Allan and thanked them for the invite.

I've said it before and I'll say it again this time round;

"Wishing you Great Success and Endless Heavenly Pleasures"!

Joe's girlfriend is beautiful. If coffee bean is on sale, I raise one eyebrow. Could it be that it is not fresh anymore?

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

catsndogs : Still haven't? Was busy this weekend, didn't manage to go Cineleisure. I guess once your project there is done, you might find the time to go JHP :o)

mama bok : Oh, they are entrepreneurs first then bloggers second. Just Heavenly has been around for many years, just that this is their first retail outlet.

wokandspoon : Oh yes we did, us floggers are a friendly and pretty mad bunch! Ha ha ha..

Wonda : Glad to see you here...You coming back here anytime to eat these? Hope all will be well. Take care!

Kenny Mah said...

Hey dear, was glad to catch you and the rest there. Was a bit of a rush getting there as I was so anal about sticking to my tight schedule for the Honeymooners, but at the end of the day, they got plenty of eating in.

Just Heavenly was a nice respite for them from my non-stop plan of activities... LOL

Wish you had joined in with the Wicked Pitches though, heard you have a lovely voice lar... Next time, maybe?

wmw said...

xiu long bao : Huh? Why didn't call to make sure? Then what happened? Can't wait? Was wondering where the two of you were.....

jason : Ha ha ha....You don't look scary, you look like a teenager!

teckiee : Don't be sad, we go sing the blues away....

meiyen : I thought you were coming but didn't. Tell your friend you go 4 o'clock also can. Come over to JHP, wish Allan and Nigel, eat cakes then leave...Can do all in half hour! Ha ha ha...

team bsg : Yalor. Hmmmm....what sort of food do you all eat for desserts (apart from fruit)?

Kenny : So how did your trip go or have you blogged about it? Eh, I've stage fright...
