Rants. Raves. Lists. Stupid stuff. Inane thoughts. Too many likes and obsessions. Whatever. Occasional contrarian thoughts on books, TV shows, music, movies, the interwebs, pop culture, trends and life. Attempting to live frugally in the Klang Valley (and failing miserably).
If not for the so-called pseudo-holiday that is World Macaron Day, I would have no reason to step into TWG Tea at all. But a buy one, free one box of 6 macarons? Sign me up. I haven't heard a similar promo from other prominent local makers and sellers of macarons, so...
Because I had always walked past (but never walked in), I had no idea how much a box of six would cost... At RM5.50 each, RM33 for a box of six seems reasonable and average priced. I had to resist the urge to buy another box.
The only catch is that you get the same flavours in both boxes.
Or at least that's what I was told :P
Since I was in the area I went to the TWG in Pavilion and according to the guy ringing up my purchase, I was the 4th person there for it; someone else had gotten TEN BOXES.
I dunno if it was because of the rough handling after I bought it, but the few I bit into was not only delicious, but really crumbly.
I wouldn't mind getting these again if a similar promo were to pop up again next year... just saying.
