Panettone ~ Italian Sweet Bread

Yesterday went Jusco to have my groceries shopping, and saw this cute little muffin-like cake. Well, it really looks like a muffin for me. Actually I saw this cake before, but never dare to try it out since I don't really fancy the texture of a muffin.

So, yesterday, I plucked up the courage to buy this little cutie as my today's breakfast. So here is it now... Panettone!!!!

I google it today to check out what is all this Panettone about. According to wikipedia, Panettone is a kind of sweet bread loaf originated from Italy. Yes, it is bread, not muffin. What a relieve to know that... haha... 

It is usually prepared and enjoyed during Christmas and New Year in western countries. It contains citron, lemon zest and raisins. The texture is similar to a bread, may be harder compare to normal soft bread. The taste is nice, not too much of dried fruits inside, therefore the taste is not very sweet. Like it!

Seems like I'm eating this panettone too it is not yet Christmas now, not even near to it... haha...

PS:  Luckily I bought it and gave myself a chance to taste it. Thinking of a situation when you are about to do a decision, things like that might be happening all the time. You are not familiar with something, but if you never try it out, you will never know how it gonna be, just like this panettone, if I never pluck up my courage to buy it and still having the impression that it will be tasted like a muffin, then I will never know the taste, you might be seeing me calling this little cutie as MUFFIN the next time I saw this bread around. Well, I'm relieved... yes, relieved...

I had visited BookFest @ Malaysia 2013 (Popular Book Fair) , how about you???

I went to the BookFest. This time the BookFest has grown as the exhibition area is bigger (that is what I think, well, it is organised once a year, don't really able to remember too much, hehe...)

But there is one thing for sure, which is the crowd of people is still very very huge.. My advice, try to avoid public holiday (Hari Raya) if you can, as the crowd during public holiday will be far more bigger, truly people mountain people sea...

I'm quite lucky as the day when I went there, the crowd is still manageable, at least you are not stuck, but perhaps a little bit of traffic jam there.

According to my past experience, more discount will be given at the end of the BookFest as there might be a need to sell off the books before the books are transferred out of the BookFest. So it is an advantage for them who visit during the last few days of the BookFest. 

Every year, a booklet will be provided when you purchased the entry ticket which cost you about RM2.50 for adult, free entry for those who are less than 18 years old and above 60 years old. Inside the book, all the discounted items are stated and you can go through the book first before aim for the item you want. The special discount on certain day will also stated inside. Therefore, READ it first so that you won't miss out any item that you longed for... 

I bought a few books, yeah, a few, compare to my last visit which I bought A LOT...hehe... 

Some English books and Mandarin one..

All these books have been in my shopping list for quite sometime, but of course, I will waited for the BookFest to get a better price of them, save money is a great knowledge, huh....

Another thing that I'm proud of is the 2 in 1 bag that I bought in the BookFest. This is sold in the stationery section at the 3rd floor. Now, let me show you how my 2 in 1 bag functions.... 

From the first picture, it is a sling bag, colourful and attractive indeed, right? Now let's see how it transforms....

How is it? nice? It transforms from a sling bag into a backpack, so convenient to bring it around, where you can transform it whenever you need. A good TRANSFORMER... LOL....

Well, this is also a discounted item. The usual price is RM 69.90, after discount, guess what, it is only RM35, a 50% discount for the item. Good deal, huh? 

Last but not least, magazines.... I bought 2 English magazine and see how much items given FOC for me? Those are all samples given to first 1500 customers (if I'm not mistaken, can't really remember it, but I'm sure this is first come first serve basis...)

The magazines are only RM6 and RM8 each, but the free gift given is far more costly than the one I spent, another good deal... LOL...

This is my shopping in the BookFest, how about yours??? Visit it from 3rd August till 11th August, don't miss it!
