You got me drooling...

This is one of those posts that will set you drooling (either for me or the chocolates). If you choose me, then you've got good taste but if you choose the chocolates (I wouldn't say it's bad taste) but rather not so smart because I'm the one whom market these delectable luscious chocolates!!! Without me, you will not even see chocolates being commercialised and marketed at every corner of the world. See, how important my role is. (actually it's just another excuse to camwhore with the chocolates) Chocolates is what I deal with everyday anyway.


People always say, working in a factory is mundane, routine and it does not have a pretty working ambiance and such. But you know what they say, a chocolate factory is the best smelling factory of all times! Even perfumery can't beat the smell of a chocolate factory. You can get sick of the perfume or even experience a nose block but when you smell chocolates, it's a totally different feeling altogether. Have you ever heard people getting sick of smelling chocolates? For me, after so many years working with chocolates, I some sort gained immunisation to the smell already. The factory smells so good that even sometimes I forgot to put on perfume. Haha lucky no one is complaining that I smelled like a chocolate. Hey, I might even taste like a chocolate too! *wink*


Chocolate and my name has become synonymous. When ever people try to save my contact in their mobile, they will always put the word "choc" beside my name and thus known as the "chocolate girl". My first ever job after graduating in 2005 was to handle the portfolio of Tango, a mass market compound chocolate in Network Foods (the company that markets Van Houten, Andes, Crispy, Kandos & Tango chocolates). I know it has to be the food industry for me after a few interviews and I have not looked back ever since. I have not regretted for a single moment to work under such a credible CEO, whom is my ex boss for he gave me ample freedom to develop the brand. I received a lot of guidance from my ex-colleagues whom now has become my dear friends. If it were not because of my experience in chocolates, I will not be called in for my current job, which as you all would have known by now is to market and develop Fidani, the rolls royce of Malaysian chocolates.

I don't know why but when I looked at these pictures, it brought me walking down memory lane again from how I started and developed a passion for these sinful treats. The amount of chocolates I had eaten in these 3 years probably has exceeded the amount you have for the last 20 years. Although I don't eat as much as I used to, the chances of me rejecting a piece of chocolate offered to me is almost impossible.


I would like to think chocolate as the new black gold. From my pictures, my expression seemed to be fascinated by the display of Tiffany & Co, Bvlgari & Cartier all combined together but its just chocolates I'm looking at. The array is countless and the choices are limitless. Who would have thought that chocolate can be as expensive as gold nowadays! Why do people spend more on chocolates than gold? Why does some of my customers spend almost RM20k on chocolates for weddings when he or she can definitely buy a small bar of gold from the bill? Because somewhere through life, we all strive to indulge in the finer things of life. We splurge and we enjoy rather than thinking of the resale value of the possession.

Chocolates have brought me far. Further that what I have expected. The amount of joy, companion and friends linked through these delectable treats have been unimaginable. I've fallen in love and out of love (I refuse to dwell further), had developed feelings that I think I shouldn't (I don't give a damn) but I did (not a tinge of regret) and met wonderful people I've never dreamt of meeting - all of this through the common linkage of just chocolates.


How could you not drool at these delights?

Chocolates make me happy - that's for sure but at the same time chocolates is also the source of my stress and worries. That's because I make money out of these brown stuff and I take chocolates seriously (more serious than any of you) due to the nature of my work. But this is also to dedicate my thanks to those whom appreciate my flair for the brown stuff. Especially to my current bosses and colleagues whom trusted me to run the show. And my dear assistant, Mei (whom is reading my blog) for all the support and $$$ you brought in! Thanks for the eyeliner (she gave me to thank me for the guidance, wow, so touching) which I would be using everyday! See, chocolate factory has nice people. This is just a preview of a fun chocolate project I'll be organising next week. Stay tuned...

So, are you drooling at with me?
