Jelly + Breast Cancer Awareness + Pewter makes any sense to you? Well, you are not the only one thinking like that. It was my first time knowing about Royal Selangor Malaysia's activities for the month of Pink October that is dedicated to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Welfare Association of Malaysia. This program or workshop was initiated since 2006, and I begin to suspect that I live in a cave because I never knew that there is such workshop by Royal Selangor!
How does the workshop help in instilling breast cancer awareness?
Royal Selangor Malaysia will donate EVERY RM100 from purchase of each jelly mould (RM290). Not only that, buyers will be able to participate in Jelly Making Workshops every Saturdays in October 2012 with LOCAL CELEBRITIES.
Yupz, you got me right. Local celebrities like Elaine Daly, Patrick Teoh, Deborah Henry, Lee Khoon Hooi, Kuah Jen Han and even non celebrities like the famous fashion designer Melinda Looi and Chef Anis Nabilah will be hosting the weekly workshops.
So imagine this. Buy a Royal Selangor Jelly Mould pewter that allows you to do charity, that is also a ticket for an interesting jelly-making workshop, plus hosted by celebrities! WOAH~ it's amazing right?
I got to know of this event, by TianChad (from www.tianchad.com) and he brought me along for the workshop last two weeks. To my astonishment, Royal Selangor Malaysia has changed so much since my last visited. Now looking posh, comfortable and beautiful, the Royal Selangor Visitor Center is well equipped with high technology for tourists convenience. =)
The Jelly Making Breast Cancer Awareness workshop took place at The Cafe located inside the Royal Selangor Visitor Center.
Upon arrival, the sight of the well-prepared and varieties of condiments excites me! I can't wait to start!
Not only that, we are provided with PINK APRON to secure our clothes from any spilling or dirt from the workshop! PINK is my favourite colour!
Oh ya, guess who is here with us?
*sweet & loving couple*
Look who is here as well! Global Blogger TianChad cares for a healthy breast BWAHAHA!
And the jelly mould made its appearance... *jeng jeng jeng*
and of course we were given a crash course on why and what this workshop is all about.
And if you are wondering, why is it conical shaped?
Here's the answer from the designer, Nick Munro!
Overcome our fears we must, and we will succeed in whatever we do.
I fear of my jelly failed to take form!
And so I starting making my jelly! Here's my "peak" filled with LOVES~ *wheee*
"We should love our life more, and take good care of our health"
And I put in two balls of dragon fruit, depicting a woman's mountaineous breasts. LOL JOKING!
So, with only RM290, you will get a gift box containing the beautiful pewter jelly mould. The gift box is wrapped in bright pink~ *awwww*
Not only that, you get a book of jelly recipes from international chefs...
and also some basic instruction steps and how to keep your jelly mould proper.
Owh~ our jellies are done and set.
CHECK THIS OUT~
Bwahhahaa...can you spot mine?
But we need to get it out from the mould.
