Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Sangkaya for their Abundance Chinese New Year media launch, where they introduced two new products – Opulence Bowl and Fortune Shake.
Sangkaya has chosen abundance as the theme for their upcoming Chinese New Year because of what it represents not just in the Chinese Culture, but in a universal aspect. Abundance is the sensitivity to every flicker of sensation and emotion in the body. The joy in each moment which you can savour, the joy within which you bring with each day. It is simplicity, kindness and feeling alive every day.
The Chinese New Year represents a time of fresh beginnings, a time to celebrate ample time with family, friends and loved ones. It is a time where we can truly enjoy every moment from the second we are awake to second we are asleep. Conscious and unconsciously we are truly grateful for every moment that we are living.
Infusing their signature coconut ice cream with flavours of orange and pineapple. The waffle bowl adds a crunchy texture to the overall experience whilst the fruit toppings add a natural element to it. A fortune cookie is thrown into the mix to prove true to the occasion. The Opulence bowl is available at all Sangkaya outlets at RM8.88 inclusive GST.
The tangy taste from the coconut infused orange ice cream is complimented with dried orange peel toppings to add a natural fruity texture. A lime is added to surprise you with a citrussy twist to add more excitement to the palatial experience.
The pineapple ice cream is refreshing and lively to the bud. It has that punchy flavour which can entice the consumer. The pineapple chunks reinforce the natural flavour while also adding a chunky texture to the consumption experience.
The icy texture of the Fortune Shakes is bound to cool you off. The natural fruity flavors are bound to give you a sense of a flavorful tropical paradise. The Fortune Shakes are available at all Sangkaya outlets at RM7.88 inclusive GST.
The orange shake grants a tangy taste to it, with an aromatic coconut taste coming at the end. The dried orange peels add a different texture to the shake.
Refreshing, the pineapple shake has a mild sweetness to it but the pineapple chunks contribute to that extra crunch and zest to the overall taste.
The respective flavours of Orange and Pineapple hold a strong symbolisation in the Chinese culture. They represent good fortune and wealth respectively. Sangkaya have implemented in a way that it is rich in flavour but also traditional in culture. The symbolisation of the fruits really brings forth what Sangkaya wants to impose in their new products.
Remember to get their exclusive collectible Sangkaya Ang Pao Packet too. I like the modern design yet still remain some auspicious elements. Just purchase any two CNY products within a single receipt to receive them.
