The Neverending Story at Just Heavenly Cafe, Bangsar Shopping Centre

Several weeks ago, I received an unusual invitation for an evening at Just Heavenly Cafe. By unusual, I meant it’s not just our normal food review evening where everyone just goes there, eat the food, socialised a little and leave the event. We were made to work for our food! That’s right, we had to exercise a little bit of our creativity for a little bit of social media detox.

This event is a collaboration between Just Heavenly, @the5tory and PenGallery.com. Just Heavenly is a brainchild of Nigel Skelchy and Allan Yap, while Allan also started crafting his own leather notebook; and PenGallery is an authorised dealer carrying large selections of pens.

Lai, founder of PenGallery.com brought his prized possession out for us to view: The Sailor Summer Haw Chinkin Maki-e Pen. Definitely the most expensive fountain pen I’ve ever seen, valued at RM68000! Chinkin means “Gold Inlay”, which is the method used to create the pen. Specialised chisel carved out the design, and the carving is then filled with gold and silver metal powder.

We were each given a fountain pen, to create our own artwork referring to the picture above. Which include the newly launched cake: “Play it again Sam”, a tribute to the late Samantha Schubert, Malaysian Actor and Model. This cake is a delicious triple decker melange of Bananas, Strawberries, and Chocolate all topped with fresh cream. Beautiful to look at, even more exquisite on the tongue.

A myriad of coloured ink for us to colour our art.

This was our collaborative effort. Kevin did most of the work, to be honest, but still, it was fun creating this together. Our cake looks like it’s dripping with blood.

Meena @llemongrass and Jason @smashpop won the contest, and they each received The Adventure Travellers Notebook. Made with 140gm paper, hand cut and hand sewn from beautiful leather lovingly by Allan Yap.

We then were treated to some delicious food. Including a sausage pasta with spicy tomato sauce. This is also part of their pasta lunch set, all priced at RM20++ with an Iced Lemon Tea, great value!

Their specially created Raya Cakes are also available in stores now, here are some of them:
