CHOCOLATES GALORE. DO YOU HAVE COCOAPHILIA?

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 / , , , , , , , , , ,

MynameisQUE;

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you're feeling fine. Last week, before going for the media preview of the Shnit International Shortfilmfestival which I blogged about HERE, I was invited to a super CHOCOLATY event by Van Houten!! 

DO YOU HAVE COCOAPHILIA? 
Cocoaphilia is passion about cocoa and all things chocolate!!

My + 1 and me came early as usual so the venue wasn't opened yet. I don't like being late for blogger events. In fact, I don't really like to be late for anything. Haha just a habit. :P 


 The organisers chose a very suitable host for the afternoon, the beautiful Anita Kapoor. Yes, the lady I mentioned in my London Weight Management advertisement blogpost HERE.


How often does anyone get invited to an event with chocolate everywhere?! 

 Irresistable. ;) 


Want some? Come and get them. Hehehehe 


What is your fondest memory of chocolate? ~~

Did your first bf give you a bouquet of chocolates? 
Or... Did you save up money just to buy your favourite chocolate when you were a kid? :P 


For me, back during secondary school days when I was still taking my O'levels, I heard a rumour about chocolates. Apparently, from what I heard is that chocolate makes you happy and at the same time it makes you forget things easily. Thus those days, my bestfriend and I avoided chocolates AT ALL COST because we studied so hard for our O's, we don't wanna "forget" any of the equations/formulas that we were supposed to memorise. 

But even until today, I honestly don't know if it's true. But who cares.... I'm not taking anymore major examinations. I CAN AFFORD TO EAT CHOCOLATES. 
Hehehehe. 


Chocolates are delicious when eaten with fruits! Who agrees?? Wheeeee!!


Hold a chocolate bar in your hand and try to break it. 

Was there a "piak" sound? Like a nice snap? 

Well, high quality chocolates have higher levels of cocoa butter which will make a clean crisp snap sound when broken. :)

During the media preview, I also managed to meet the brand manager of Van Houten, Ms Diana Obias I asked her a very stupid question..... Don't laugh please. 

"Can I know why you don't have white chocolate?".

Well, according to her Van Houten specialises in cocoa and chocolate. White chocolate isn't exactly CHOCOLATE but it's merely a flavour. Man I feel so cheated after that. All this time I've been paying for a flavour and not REAL CHOCOLATE? Hahahaha. Well, we learn something new everyday, don't we? :)


Are you a fan of dark chocolate, chocolate with hazelnuts or almonds or choc with whole fruit and nuts or are you more into plain milk chocolate? :) 

My dad is a huge fan of whole fruit and nuts. 

ME? I LIKE MY CHOCOLATE PLAIN.


 



Van Houten chocolates come in two serving preferences of either a chocolate bar or chocolate covered whole roasted fruit and nuts, in milk chocolate and semi-sweet flavour profiles



Farah was just as excited as me! See, she can't wait to open the bar of chocolate! 




We all know about how CHOCOLATE promotes the release of endorphins which makes us all happy! So after eating so much chocolate, if the we didn't feel HAPPY at all, then THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE CHOCOLATES RIGHT? Hehehehe. 

YES WE ARE HAPPY GIRLS! 

But chocolate isn't the only reason why we were so happy......


IT'S ALSO CUS WE GOT TO SHAKE HANDS AND HUG ANITA KAPOOR!!! 
OMG SERIOUSLY DAMN HAPPY. 


It was nice to meet her in person and personally thank her for writing the blogpost about the London Weight Management ad. It was because of her that people were more aware about the disgusting ad by LWM. If a random stranger were to write a blogpost about the ad, probably people wouldn't even give a damn. But because it came from somebody who has made her mark in the entertainment industry, word spread fast and many people agreed about how distasteful the ad was made.

Here's me in the taxi with a box filled with chocolates which I shared with my family and bf. :)
Happiness must be shared right? Kekeke. 

Van Houten Chocolates are available at all leading supermarkets and convenience stores. Come on, I'm sure you've seen them around at 7 Eleven, NTUC, Shop & Save and many more other shops. Time to grab some! :P 


Xoxo,
RynaQUE

Also, I've had comments from some of you about joining for events like this. I'll try to ask the event organisers next time and who knows, if you're lucky I might be able to bring 1/2 readers with me for such events. We can talk and get to know each other better too. We'll see how! For more updates, don't forget to follow me on Twitter

OMG! I'm so jealous

Asking her about white chocolate wasn't a dumb question at all.

Yes, white chocolate isn't technically chocolate, but some people regard it as chocolate nonetheless.

Van Houten has been making milk chocolate for years, so I'm not surprised to see them sticking to their forte.

Anita Kapoor looks yummier than the chocolate though.

Evangeline: Thanks for dropping by. Btw I loveeee your name. It's such a pretty name!

Dedrick: Anita Kapoor is so pretty in real life! Hehe
