I didn't know I will be receiving a V gift and not especially not from him. It was indeed a sweet surprise! I was at 1 Utama this afternoon just to meet up with him (for the 1st time) to collect this beautiful gift.
Picture extracted from Patissier Journey.
The whole box was made out of chocolates. The only thing you can't eat out of this gift is the tray!
It was indeed a surprise that I won the box of chocolates from his blog. I met up with him in front of Johnny's at the old wing and he came out wearing his chef uniform carrying the chocolate gift in a cake box. Our meeting was less than a minute but I really appreciate the gift. Imagine me carrying the opened cake box (fearing that the chocolate deco will be spoilt if the box was closed) and having to walk from one end to the other. On the way, the handle of the box broke and I nearly lose the gift. But lucky, my hand was quick to save the box from falling!
They were good but would have been better if it's of darker chocolates. He uses very generous amount of gold dust but he would have done a better job if he uses a thicker gold paint to draw some lines on the chocolate ribbons. This gift coming from a 22 year old good looking pastry chef in uniform delivered to me personally is indeed an interesting encounter. Chocolates are great isn't it?!!
