Welcome to Just Heavenly's Blog

It's already 2009. When I last wrote this welcome message, I happily dated it 2010 to make it sticky. Stanley Kubrick's & Arthur C Clarke's vision of the future is almost in the past and we're refreshing this blog with a new look and a new attitude to reflect new challenges and new directions.
As you can see, the template has been refreshed and we've added a twitter bar for you to follow updates there and get to know us better, as well as our link to our Facebook profile.
In the past year, due to YOUR support, we've added a third outlet to the Just Heavenly family. And now, we're proud to be serving Petaling Jaya from our new hub there, A Slice of Heaven. Watch out for more to come.
To A Slice of Heaven in Jaya One - Coming Soon To Bangsar To Pleasures in Plaza Damansara PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHAT'S NEW!

Flogger's Gathering


Floggers. F-ood B-loggers.

Love the contraction.

Love the people.

People who are passionate about one thing. Food. In all it's forms. In all it's glory.

It was like going to a meeting of Fighter Pilots. However, instead of "Maverick" and "Goose," you had "Babe In the City" and "boo_licious." Not to mention at least 60 others with nicknames ranging from "Xiao Long Bao" - who, I'm assured, is as juicy in the middle as the real thing - to those like me and Riz Ainuddin who use our real names.

I'm not even going to attempt to list all the names here as this post is intended to capture the flavour of the evening rather than the food. For that, you'll have to take a gander at my personal blog Kampungkayell which is more a life journal that includes food as one of the stars rather than a Food Blog per se.
It really was a privilege meeting so many people who are so passionate about what they do and it truly demonstrates the diversity of talent and tastes that Malaysia has to offer.
Many thanks to boo_licious of Masak Masak for organising this one. Also, many thanks to Elina, who organised logistics from KLUE and Sandias (Alfredo and Patrick) who put up with some of us loud ones in their comfy little corner in Damansara. Perhaps we should get a small group together to organise the next one and spread the load as it were. It's hell trying to get a group of people together. ;-) Trust me. I know.

The company was good, the restaurant was comfy, and there was free flow of Martell Brandy. What more could you ask for?

Precious Pea

Anyway, it was nice meeting you Nigel. Was told Allan did dropby that night but i was not introduced to him. Awww...maybe at next gathering huh?

Grrrr...missed your cake... :(

Lyrical Lemongrass

Nigel, my sentiments exactly! Let's do this more often.

babe_kl

i guess the deed is done and now you guys can form your own makan gang for food crawls. nice you meet you nigel but i missed out on your cake. i dun care hor, next time i ask for samples before i decide which one to order muahaha can arh???

Kenny Mah

Ga! Wish I could have followed you lot to the Attic after dinner! But I had a full Saturday ahead. O well. Always the next time, eh?

Glad to have met you in person; you are one cool dude, Nigel. Hope Allan is feeling better by now.

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Actually instead of food crawls, we should decide on themes and then take turns to host and then do pot luck. Then everyone chips in to clean up. I like cooking lah. Don't often get a chance to do that seeing as how I'm in the office so much.

As for samples, can always ask ;-) hehehe

teckiee

I'm on'z if there's a pot luck!!

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

teckiee...will let you know when there's one. Will communicate via Msianfloggers egroup :-)

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Kenny, thanks for compliment. And yes Allan is much better. Noticed I had not replied to some peeps.

Babe, as for samples can always ask.

LL; caaaannn. We just need to get off our arses and do something about it. But lets give it a month or so. VERY busy this week and next.

precious pea; never mind lah can always get later ohso can.

wmw; hehehe pot luck anyone?

"Joe" who is constantly craving

i cant cook?? haha how to do potluck..can i designate myself to be taster? making sure everything that gets served on the table is up to standards?

Tunku Halim

Aiyah, I want to be a Flogger too. Please! Please! You mean I have to write about food? I just eat it!

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Joe; anyone can cook ;-) Sorry lah, not going to be let off THAT easily. ;-) First time can let you off. Bring drinks and you be bartender. But after that, then can get recipe book and start your OWN culinary adventures. ;-)

Haiyo Hal of course can! ;-) Kenny's not exactly a flogger, but he's in. ;-) Just a love of food will do. Very loosy goosy bunch of people. :-)

Swee

oh no! I missed it. I always miss out on big-bloggers/floggers gatherings. :( .. looks like fun!

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Swee, it's cool. There's be others. :-)

babe_kl

potluck ka? aiyoh where to find a venue to hold so many ppl? LOL...

Tummythoz

Err how to cook for so many? Kenduri style?

Kenny Mah

Yay, I'm in! Not a flogger? Better yet, I'm a Flogger Groupie, hee hee. ;)

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

babe_kl; good question? hmmm...have a think everyone...

tummy; if we all make for 20 and there are 20 people cooking, it'll be more than enough for 80 people approx

kenny; you and tunku both. He wants in too! ;-)

Kenny Mah

Ah, Tunku and I can both be honourary members. Most important to join in the makan, if not the "flogging"... ;)

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Ask and you shalt receive. *waves my wand* hmm now where did I put my wings? ;-)

MeiyeN

nice meeting you nigel! :D

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Good to meet you too Meiyen. :-)

boo_licious

Nice meeting you Nigel and Allan! Waiting for yr new outlet to open so I can sample the cakes plus spread the word around.

Potluck sounds like a great idea but kinda difficult to get someone to volunteer a space which can fit all. For those who can't cook, can always ta pau food.

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

Nice meeting you too boo. :-) Thanks re the new outlet. Agree re the potluck. Let's keep it loose. Maybe do a picnic thing in Lake Gardens and theme it such.
