I was glad to be invited to a reunion lunch preview at SDS Bakery & Café's Johor Jaya outlet. Thanks so much to my JB blogger friend Kim, who generously did the arrangement for me!
Upon reaching the premises, I was greeted by the wonderful people from SDS Bakery & Café and the PR in charge, Ms Alice. Thanks for the warm welcome rendered to both my partner and myself.
Look at the delicious cakes on display! I was literally drooling when taking these photos!
I took many random photos before the event commenced.
We met with the eatery's newest mascot, 'A-Li', who dressed up like the Chinese God of Fortune, Cai Shen Ye. With him was also a Golden Rooster, to signify the upcoming Chinese New Year! They brought a joyous CNY mood to the premises!
I was happy to be able to get a photo with A-Li, and he was friendly and nice.
We started off our lunch with the Ong Reunion Cake Rice (RM59.90), which comes with a homemade tea that is made out of fresh fruits and citrus. This dish's portion is suitable for 4 people to share.
Let us start our prosperity Rooster year with 3 auspicious Chinese characters, 旺 (ONG) 发 (HUAT) and 兴 (HENG).
We were also given the opportunity to try out the 'Tower of Love', RM99.90 which is available on the 12-14 February 2017.
The tower consists of Grilled Salmon Skewer, Aglio Olio, Grilled Tilapia Fish, Deep Fried Mushroom, Grilled Chicken Chop, Mixed Vegetable Salad and topped with fresh Shrimps with Tomato Salsa Sauce. This set comes with 2 drinks (for him and for her).
Apart from the CNY reunion lunch and Valentine's Special, we were also treated to new yummy dessert cakes!

'Te Amo', Chocolate Moist Cake with Chocolate Granache is retailing at RM49.90
'Madly in Love' - 7 pull-Apart Blueberry Muffins with Fondant and Fresh Cream at RM45.90.
We also tried the 'Love Cupid' (Rainbow Slice in pair) at RM19.90 which comes in assorted slices of Vanilla Mousse and Mango Cheese.
Lastly, we had the 'Perfect Match' (RM19.90) to end our tasting session at SDS Bakery & Café. This set consists of Red Velvet Cheese and Chocolate Granache.
I personally prefer the Velvet Cheese Cake from the ‘Perfect Match’ range, while my partner preferred the Rainbow Slice from the 'Love Cupid' series.
We were surprised to receive a hamper from SDS Bakery & Café before leaving the premises.
The Welcome Spring Hamper is retailing at RM68 at any outlets of SDS Bakery & Café.
The hamper consists of the 4 classic and 'Must-Have' CNY goodies, such as Nonya Pineapple Cookies, Biscotti, Peanut Cookies and Chocolate Meringue.
Thanks SDS Bakery & Café for giving me so many wonderful memories and I was relieved that I was the only Singaporean blogger at the event, I was made to feel very welcome! Thanks for the kind hospitality! I appreciate the invite and I look forward to the next event in Malaysia.
