Last Saturday was a fun filled day for me, as I discovered the First Chocolate Museum in Malaysia with my bunch of blogger friends.
Cooperate by DR Group Holdings Sdn Bhd (“DR Group”), the producers of homegrown brands such as Danson, Fidani and Millton, the prestigious Chocolate Museum is open to the public with a unique three-fold proposition(3Es) consisting of;
1) Interactive Education
2) Chocolate-making Experience
3) Enjoyable Shopping
The Chocolate Museum is located at Kota Damansara, somewhere nearby the Segi College. It is very easy to locate, I just followed the directions from waze and I reached there safely. There is a huge free open air car park inside the Chocolate Museum compound. I love how easy it is for us to drive and park there.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by the founder of DR Group before having our breakfast there. Dato is a very friendly and down-to-earth person, thank you for having us there.
Then we got to learn the origin of chocolates, some chocolate history, different types of cocoa beans from the theory part of the sharing of Manager of Chocolate Museum, Mr. Mohd Azuan Arshad.
Do you know that eating chocolates bring health benefits? If you don’t know, find out more at the Chocolate Museum yourselves k.
Then we had witnessed the chocolate-making by the chocolate masters. It was a long process to make a chocolate but it’s all worth it because the handmade chocolates taste really great yummy! Not only that, the chocolatey scent in the air smells really sweet and nice too, I like it at least.
During the visit, we also got to know the Fidani brand, which is an exclusive handmade chocolates by DR Group. We have tried various Fidani chocolates, they are all delicious. I want to go back Chocolate Museum for more!

After watching the experts did their job, we were divided into groups for some activity.
Could you guess what we did at the Chocolate Museum with these given tools?
The answer is - build a chocolate dream house! We were given one hour to build a chocolate dream house and judges will judge it from the creativity, team work, cleanliness and some other criterias. It sounds impossible as none of us had chocolate making experience before but we managed to complete it with great team work, bravo.
It was such a fun time working with everyone from different publications! Thank you Lan, Emas Putih and the reporter from Utusan for working with me on that day. Our team had created a very beautiful Hipster house and we were crowned the 3rd winning group for that day, yay!
We received our prizes and goodie bags happily after the announcement, hehehe.
Showing the finish work from other groups.
Grand Prize winner
Could you guess how we ended our Chocolate Museum visiting that day?
It’s Shopping time! We had fun shopping the quality imported and local chocolates at the shopping arcade. The price there is much cheaper than retail shops outside.
Most importantly, the entrance to the Chocolate Museum is FREE! And it is open to PUBLIC!
Lastly, I want to share great news with all of you. Chocolate Museum will be having their annual warehouse sales on 29, 30 and 31 Jan 2016. Its time for us to buy the gifts for our loved ones this CNY and Valentines this Friday to Sunday!
