1st Avenue Cafe and Bakery Fair 2015

A bad day is never gonna happen here. - Pie Harbour
Absolutely love this photo for everybody looked so happy and gluttony in it!
It was a great 2-hour of coffee and pastry overdose for us at the inaugural
Cafe & Bakery Fair at 1st Avenue Mall.
Held at the mall's lower ground floor, the setting kinda reminded of the
Young Enterprise(YE) sale we went to during high school lol. 
The 3-day had seen 12 vendors including cafes, bakeries, hotel, soy bean and juice boutiques.
Apart from the catchy colorful oil tank bench from Coffee Smith,

the limelight shone on this pretty barista, which I think was one of reason why the guys swarmed by.

Betty Lin has been the main barista of Taipei Coffee Smith 
since 2013 and has won many awards over the years including 
first prize in 2015 Taipei PCA Barista Latte Art Championship and
2015 Hsing Wu University (Taipei) Barista Latte Art Championship.
Young and talented, Betty made many coffee lovers happy by giving out 350 cups of lattes for free!
Moving on was Saffron Cafe located at Prangin Mall, the cafe me and my family
are very familiar with as we have visited many times for their great hospitality,
good and affordable food. If you have never been to this hidden gem, I urge you to do so!
Not to forget, they have pretty good coffee too. That's a good looking and yummy mocha.
Gold Choice Barista Cafe & Academy, the one and only distributor of Bezzera coffee espresso machine in Malaysia was very kind to serve us three cuppa creamy latte that got us coffee overdosed.
If you have an interest in making beautiful latte art, head right over to their academy!
Popular for their specialty drip coffee and probably the huge, fluffy Patrick,
Coffee Affairs introduced their clever dripper filter, absolutely something new that we should explore.
Enough of coffee,we were exhilarated to see all these colorful juices!
Hidden in Melaka street, Juice Me produces raw, pure and fresh cold pressed juices daily.
Their juices are absolutely refreshing and yummy, we are impressed with the list and combination of juices they offer! Need meal replacement, detox or get your hang-over fixed?
Their juices could work miracles! So happy that we brought home 6 bottles of assorted juices that day!
Made with the best natural soybean goodness, the award-winning and internationally recognized 
Sorganic is a premium quality organic soybean powder that uses top-grade non-GMO soybeans
which offers health benefits for the heart, bone as well as weight loss.
They were giving out free samples, I got greedy and had two cups of them.
Everytime when I passed by this cake boutique at Gurney Plaza's basement,
I would stop to watch kids having fun decorating cakes with their parents.
That was such a heart-warming thing to witness.
Us girls had so much fun decorating the cakes with our very limited creativities.
That was me trying to figure out how to draw a heart which ended up to look like a puddle of pinky mud.
Apart from DIY cakes, Say Cakes offer customized cupcakes, tarts and oh, their cheese cake is good!
We would do anything for food!
The prettiest booth of all, Pie Harbour was giving out free freshly baked pies to
those who shared their photos taken at the photo booth on social media.
Happy girl giddily nomming down her pie.
French Kisses Patisserie(FKP)  opened our eyes to this sexy beast, Slayer, a manual espresso machine!
The name itself won my heart already. Check out their cool video here.
The cafe in Sungai Petani offers freshly baked pastries and boy, the earl grey macaron sure looked yummy!
Hotel Jen's booth was serving fresh-from-the-oven croissant, didn't have much expectation
but it was so soft and crunchy! Croissant lovers might want to drop by their bakery one day,
soon, maybe tomorrow, or today. Do it now!
One of the to-go cafes on my list, Hammock Cafe is a rather new and hip
chill-out place where you eat and drink on a hammock.
It's like you're on vacation whenever you're there, minus the sea and sand.
The cafe serve SanPellegrino, an Italian sparkling juice, probably to give even more vacay-vibe.
Last but not least, the bakery me and my mom love very much!
Apart from their popular durian Hokkaido cake and egg pudding,
Butter Olive Pastry House and Academy also offer baking and cake decoration courses
to those who are serious in baking. They have just opened a new branch in Tanjung Tokong!
Anddd that's a wrap! Huge thanks to 1st Avenue Mall and of course all participating vendors 
for all the fun and not to forget, food! Special thanks to Raymond for helping me with most of the photos :)
