IJM Land's Good Coffee Day & Secoya Residences

Having a cup of coffee in the morning will give Mommy Jane an energy boost. Besides that more and more research is emerging to suggest that there may be several health benefits associated with drinking this dark black beverage, from helping prevent diabetes to lowering the risk of liver disease. As what Poet Sheikh Ansari Djezeri Hanball Abd-al Kadir said "Coffee is the common man's gold and like gold, it brings to every man the feeling of luxury and nobility". Because of the love with Coffee, Mommy Jane brought eldest Angel, CM with me to join IJM Land's Good Coffee Day 2.0 at ICE Gallery in Pantai Sentral Park.
As Christmas approaching soon. IJM Land thought that the perfect gift for coffee lovers like Mommy Jane would be to spend a day immersed in all things coffee related, while providing the festive scene for much merriment. Mommy Jane and Little Angel were impressed with the decorations at the ICE Gallery which was decked out in Yuletide joy in the form of a Candy House that was as sweet to look at as it must have tasted.


Daniel Liew, the founder of the Barista Guild of Asia and also a globally certified trainer and certifier with the prestigious Authorised Specialty Coffee Association of Europe, had took coffee fans through the basics of brewing a perfect cup of coffee, while imparting his vast knowledge on the different coffee growing regions and their varietals of coffee beans in terms of taste and flavours.

We were also educated about the parameters that affect the quality of their beverage and had received useful tips after tasting exercises helped us to distinguish the finer points of the brew. The most interesting part of this workshop is, we had a personalised guidance from the coffee expert himself about how to correctly utilise the manual brewing equipment.
Grace Foo, Manager of Sales & Marketing for Pantai Sentral Park said that there's something about a cup of coffee that lends itself to conversations and community. Think about the good old days when neighbours might share a chat over the garden wall while sipping their coffee. That's what we'd like to evoke with this event, that coffee should be enjoyed in a comfortable environment amongst like-minded souls. At Pantai Sentral Park, they're all about this sense of kinship, as evident from their credo of People.Planet.Priority.
Coffee Day 2.0 had various facets of drinks too. There were also a host of coffee-centric activities to keep everyone in the spirit. There was freshly brewed coffee courtesy of Coffex Coffee, but if your tastes veered towards cold brewed coffee, good folks from coffee2GO had the best of it. What is coffee without the perfect mug to sip it from ? Kaleidos Art Tune was there to demonstrate how mugs and handles are skilfully crafted out of clay. Wow.... Mommy Jane really love the design of the mugs. Best place to have my hot coffee.

There are plenty of rich beverages and nibbles to feast on too. From the beautifully presented Eva's Homemade Nougat, to a crisp-on-the-outside and fluffy-on-the-inside waffles by Grid & Go and delectable tarts from the skilful pastry chefs at Harold's Academy, there was enough to satisfy even the sweetest tooth of them all.

If you were looking for inspiration on what to serve up for an eye catching finale after a sumptuous Christmas lunch, the cupcake decorating workshop provided handy insights into how to dress up your dessert. Conducted by the glamorous founder of Coffee Jean & Co. herself, actress Tania Zara brought a celebrity shine to the proceedings. Adding a cool mix to the sweet treats, Sketcher Ice Cream gave visitors a chance to try five different fruity flavoured ice-cream on the hot day.
Vivian Lee, an artist who created works of art through creative coffee caricatures, was there to present her very own coffee painting. Vivian had done a coffee caricatures on Mommy Jane's look and Mommy Jane loves it so much and it really looks like me. If you don't believe it, you can see the photo below.
While Vivian busy working on the coffee caricatures on Mommy Jane, Mommy Jane took this opportunity to take a group photo with Xavier Mah, PR of the event and my blogger friends, Rane and Charmaine. A great catch-up with all of you and hope you loves the keychains that I bought from KK
To further demonstrate the versatility of coffee, FAWN Beauty Co. had distributed jars of their all natural, hand crafted Cacao and Coffee Organic Body Scrub to the appreciative crowd. There are also Santa Claus and Santarina appearance giving away sweet treats to spread the good cheer during their walkabout sessions.

After introduced homes for younger generations, older one like Mommy Jane with larger families will love the design to the 4+1 bedroom, 1,670 square feet Secoya Type C unit. The interior design here is a seamless union of vintage feel with a modern treatment of textures and expressions.
