pretty boxes and chocolate in a row
Upset because Beyonce postponed her concert in Kuala Lumpur this weekend? My advice.....console yourself with some champagne truffles from Teuscher. Flown in from Zurich, these freshly made chocolates make life a lot brighter after you have popped one in your mouth.
As they're freshly made from butter, cream and chocolate, it is best to consume them within 10 days (not a hard task believe me!). Teuscher claims to be the first to have come up with the idea for champagne truffles in 1947. During a heat wave in Zurich, Adolf Teuscher Sr was said to have saw a champagne bucket that inspired him to create a chocolate that has a "fresh and cooling taste".
The quaint little shop in Bangsar Shopping Centre is also a great place for snapping cute little paper crepe animals and characters. As Halloween is just round the corner, there's adorable looking witches, ghosts and even a devil-like figure on display. Aside from the champagne truffles, they also sell various kinds of truffles (spied a wine one), chocolate in various shapes and bars. There's also hot chocolate available with a few tables and chairs on the side for you to indulge in the rich dark beverage. More pictures can be found in my Flickr set.

(Pork free. The chocolates cost around RM68 per 100grams that can get you around 7-8 pieces. It is advised you call ahead to check if they are available, as the truffles sell out very quickly.)
