AKULA WAS HERE : FESTIVAL DU CHOCOLAT, VERSOIX

CHOCOLATES!

I dont need to write about how crazy people are with this mouth watering delicacy. Browsing the Wikipedia, chocolates are thought to have;

"beneficial effects suggested include anticancer, brain stimulator, cough preventor and antidiarrhoeal effects."

although;

"An aphrodisiac effect is yet unproven."

But, seriously, who cares about all that, when the act of eating chocolates is a pleasurable experience itself. Right?

With that in mind I brought my family to the Versoix, about 10 minutes drive from my place to have a day at the once a year Festival du Chocolat.




Tunggu apa lagi? Belasah!


The long queuing line.



In sort of an open day concept, visitors were welcomed to visit the chocolate factory and see the process of turning cocoa into the dark, shining, inviting and delicious chocolate themselves. There were a lot of free testings which I am not shy to admit that we took the advantage and really, really tested the delicious stuff.

Hmmm, which way to chocolate heaven?

This was supposed to be a huge, giant 5 meter tall chocolate bunny. When we arrived at this place, they were still preparing and making it. At the end of the festival, this will be chopped out and sold and donated for Haiti Earthquake victims. We were tired of waiting for them to finish it so we move along to other stalls.





You just have to appreciate how much time and effort were spent to create this music sheet. Amazing!



The details on the hairs - Skilled giler!






These were tennis balls dipped in layers of chocolate.


Tang telinga tu paling sedap! Hehehe





Free chocolate anyone?



Cocoa, where it all begins.




Seriously, the baby was not an accident although some would swear chocolate is sort of aphrodisiac.

Well, I don't have anything to add on that!
