Gartien Pineapple Cakes for CNY 2014!

One more month and it's time to celebrate Chinese New Year! Have you started to stock up your Chinese New Year cookies? I bet most of you start to crack your brain to think of what to bake or to buy for your love, family, relatives and friends.

Pineapple tart is one of the must-have cookies! In Hokkien dialect, pineapple is called "Ong Lai" which means "Prosperity Comes". 

Gartien (小田佳園), a local pineapple cakes manufacturer based in Penang, has comes out with new packaging design which has Peony/Mudan Flower/牡丹 as CNY 2013 theme.

The box is now in elegant looking red with gold stamping. There are 10 individual packages in each box with Chinese ink painting of ‘mudan flowers’ on its individual packing.

Each box is priced at RM45, available till 26 Jan 2014. (30 Dec 2013 onwards). However, you are able to enjoy promotional price at RM38 per box if you make pre-order before 31 Dec 2013.

Fyi, 500 sets have been pre-booked by their valuable friends and customers even before the production! Now it's left only about 1000 "Auspicious Gift Sets" available for pre-order. In another words, only 250 sets are available weekly! Note down the date!
Week 1: 30th Dec 2013- 5th Jan 2014
Week 2: 6th Dec 2013- 12th Jan 2014
Week 3: 13th Dec 2013- 19th Jan 2014
Week 4: 20th Dec 2013- 26th Jan 2014

Here is an additional Bonus for everyone! For every 10 boxes ordered, you can either opt for another box of pineapple cakes FREE (if you collect them yourself) or get your postage WAIVED (if you are residing within Peninsular Malaysia).

I like the pineapple fillings which are sweet yet juicy. The fillings are made of 100% fresh pineapples picked directly from their plantation in the village of Nibong Tebal, Penang. On the other hand, the golden pastries are made with natural ingredients and pure butter that gives the milky and buttery taste yet light and fluffy feel. I can feel the texture of the real pineapples when eating it. It's perfect to be served with a cup of tea! :)

Guess what? No preservative is added!

We're our own dragons.


"We're our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves."
(Tom Robbins)

RIP.. 1/11/2013

Few dragon years ago, she was born. A kind lady. A strong woman. After 3 weeks of fighting in the ICU, she left us.. to another world.. I believe, she went to the peaceful world, with no pain or sorrow.. :)

Thanks for becoming my granny. You are awesome :). Without you = without my mom, without my mom = without me. I'm grateful to have you in my life, to cook awesome meals for me, take care of me, talk to me even though we hardly understand each others when I was small*we used to try to simplify our language for each other :/*.

Glad that you still drop by my dream before you left. Seeing you recovered, smiling happily and telling me not to worry about you, you are fine in my dream. I hope you really do right now, and in the future too.

No matter what, I really hope you rest in peace. Go to the place where you suppose to, happily. Don't worry about us, we will take care of ourselves :). Make sure you do, at least that's the point of keeping me okay despite so much of dramas happened..

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. Stay strong Camy!
Why so much of drama in life? Won't u feel tired? I feel extremely tired although i'm only watching at the side, feeling exhausted. Totally disappointed. Why things happened this way? I really don't understand. :(
