Häagen-Dazs' Sensual Summer Moments

Häagen-Dazs launched their latest summer flavour of Apricot and Cream with a fashion show showcasing the works by Janchittra Tantikarn, Md Hussein Bin Rosman and Joan Lim from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.

I was invited to this summer soiree at Bangsar Village II to witness the launch with the theme Sensual Summer Moments. Finger food were catered from Marmalade Cafe and of course we were served Apricot and Cream ice-cream and a drink called Summer Breeze, both available now at all Häagen-Dazs outlets. This flavour is light and fruity with bits of apricots embedded beneath the creamy ice-cream.

This summer some creations were designed for both dining-in and take-away, so head out to the nearest Häagen-Dazs to check them all out.

Daphne Iking was the emcee for the night, I tell you, she looked so svelte and splendid and her daughther is sooo cute! Once the Managing Director of HPL, the master franchisor of Häagen-Dazs is done with his speech, the fashion show got started.

The designs of the dresses were inspired by the summer colours of apricot and cream; and we saw lots of playful baby-doll cut complete with pleats and ruffles dresses in the different hues of pale orange, yellow, peach, and apricot. The models looked so elegant and poise in these flirty little numbers.

The show ended with some of these models bringing out the latest ice-cream creation where the media photographers all rushed up front to snap pics whilst the food bloggers, errr with their butts stuck to the chairs. Not sure about the rest, kinda shy to bring out p&s to compete with their canggih dslr.

Media scrambling for pics

Once the event was over, food bloggers like Ruth, Rachel, FBB, Bangsar Babe, Paprika, TNG and J congegrated to say hi to each other. I knew Pink Parisian is there but I dunno where is she since I've never met her before :p. Hey, Frat was there too and he can't wait to dive in to some Apricot and Cream.
