Haha, cupcakes are such a ME thing; *laughs*). Come try a couple; and If you ask nicely, I might just provide you with the secret recipe! *sneaky grin* hehe.
Separate sealed 3in1 packs will also be sold to those who would like to have their cosy cuppa at home!
Ipoh White Coffee?
Here's a couple of interesting facts about the coffee.
Ipoh "White" Coffee is a roast of coffee prepared using a unique method that combines elements of modern approaches with traditional Malaysian brewing practices. The term "white coffee" originates from the literal translation of its Chinese name. (Pak ko-pi)
Traditionally, Malaysian style "black" coffee roast (also known as Hainanese coffee; not to be confused with the serving style of coffee without milk) is produced by roasting the beans with sugar and margarine. "White" coffee, on the other hand, is produced with only margarine and without any sugar, resulting in a roast that is less dark, hence the term "white" coffee. Note that the idea that white coffee is produced from a different species of coffee is a common misconception; the species normally used in this roast is the Robusta. The name "white coffee" is associated with Ipoh, due to it originating from Ipoh (in particular, its Old Town). Exceedingly popular in Ipoh, "white" coffee is slowly but steadily gaining a following in other regions of Malaysia and abroad.

Looking forward to see YOU there!
Remember to check out my talented friend "Ivy" on stage, trace the aroma of fragrant white-coffee and look out for my pretty tiers of cupcakes!

Edit: I would like to wish all fellow Malaysian's
HAPPY INDEpenDANCe DAY!! MERDEKAA!!
wOOHooo...*laughs* here's a short clip of our cheerful Azalia and her friend ERin. It's a sweet clip to remind us Malaysian students abroad how much we love our beloved country; special, unique, colourful and exciting is so many ways...*sigh* Malaysia....there's no place like home!

I'm making puff crusts. All-purpose flour is too heavy for it to lift up and become crispy. It's alright. I'll hunt around. Thanks.

angie: Ipoh is such a great place to visit just for FOOD!! haha

Juan: No worries :), I've never made puff crusts before, not too sure waht youre referring too...but if you're talking bout making pastry, try italian 101 flour available at the supermarket. Or you can try asking the gourmet deli's if they have the type of flour you need.
