8TH SGST-KDK CHARITY

It is such an honor to be working with this golfing group which started raising funds for charity since 2010. For the past 7 years, they have raised a significant amount of money which benefitted many underprivileged, physically disabled and mentally challenged children and old folk's homes in and around Selangor, KL, Ipoh and Seremban. They have also donated to a dialysis centre for the poor. For further details on the list of core homes they support, please check out their facebook at http://www.facebook.com/groups/15673498660/

This year marks their 8th SGST-KDK charity and we feel proud that Mangolicious has been selected as a part of their fund raising event. For each cash donation of RM50.00, you will get a free jar of mango or durian jam. We have also pledged to donate RM1.00 from the sale of each jar for this project. This is over and above our usual donation of RM1.00 per jar to Cherishlife Home, a non-profit and no-kill animal shelter. In essence, your donation will support not one but two charitable causes. If you would like to donate, please call Cindy or Tiong at the contact details indicated on the poster or you can also contact us at 012-3307848. Remember that one jar can make a difference!

DURIAN JAM


Tackling the King of fruits was a tall order for us. Apart from the high cost, its thick and creamy texture posed a huge challenge for our canning process. But we presevered and after many months of experimentation, we are pleased to be able to bring to you our newest baby - Durian Jam! Made without any coconut milk (santan) or cream, artificial flavouring, preservatives or coloring, its natural taste is divine when spread on fluffy bread or simply eat it straight from the jar.


Our Homemade Durian Jam will be available for the first time via GoodShop Msia Kids event at Bangsar Village 1 this weekend (May 20 & 21) so don't forget to drop by for a free sampling. Thereafter, it will be available at our stockist, The Red Cherry (both store and online). As usual, RM1.00 from the sale of each jar will be donated to Cherishlife Home for its animal shelter.

CHERISHLIFE HOME


Making a difference with our business has always been one of our purposes when we started Mangolicious almost 4 years ago. At that point of time, we were volunteering to feed the homeless via Reach Out Malaysia so naturally, we decided to help the homeless. Hence, we contributed part of our sales proceeds to Reach Out Malaysia for 3 years and we were grateful for the opportunity.


When we rescued Furby and Colbie as puppies more than 2 years ago and recently Felix, the little kitten, not only their lives have changed forever but ours too. This moved us to help Cherishlife Home by making them our new beneficiary since October 2016.  


Cherishlife Home is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter founded by Winnie Lau (aka Aunty Winnie) who has spent most of her time and life savings rescuing animals and providing them with love, care and shelter. There are currently about 200 dogs and 20 cats at the shelter in Hulu Langat and Aunty Winnie’s house has been turned into a rehabilitation home for about 20 dogs with medical issues. It’s a constant struggle to keep up with high expenses in caring for these rescued animals. Even though there are public donations from kind Samaritans and small businesses like us but it is never enough. Hence, despite being 61 years of age and suffering from a bad back, Aunty Winnie braves herself to participate in bazaars to raise funds for her shelter. We extended our help by sponsoring Mangolicious products for sale during these bazaars and also in helping them to promote.


It was an eye opener when we recently visited the rehab home and shelter. Every dog and cat has a story – homeless, lost, abandoned, abused or sick to the extent that the Vets have given up on them but at Cherishlife Home, they were given a chance to heal out of the love and care given by Aunty Winnie. We want to share with you what we have seen through this video we produced in the hope that it will touch your hearts as much as they have touched ours.   


With much appreciation to Loo Foong May for producing this video, Ruby Tan for assisting her and Cherishlife Home for allowing us to use some of their materials to publish this video.

CHERISHLIFE HOME

One of our goals is to make a difference with our business by contributing to a good cause. In line with this, we have contributed part of our sales proceeds to Reach Out Malaysia to support its homeless feeding program over the past 3 years and we are ever so grateful for the opportunity.


In the same spirit, we have decided to move on to help others in need. Cherishlife Home would be our new recipient hence, we will contribute RM1.00 from the sale of each jar or gift pack to the home effective this month. Cherishlife Home is a non-profit organization with a “no kill” animal shelter founded and operated by Mdm Lau Choy Sze @ Auntie Winnie out of passion and love for furry kids. The goal of the home is to rescue and rehabilitate traumatized and injured animals and find them a home through adoption programs. We are so touched by the work and sacrifice of Auntie Winnie including all the volunteers who came forward to support the home. If you would also like to help or need more information, please check out their facebook page under "cherishlifehome"

MANGO MOON CAKE

Mid-Autumn Festival will be celebrated on 15th September when the moon is expected to be its roundest and brightest.  In China, it's the second grandest festival after Spring Festival. This is the time of the year where the ancient Chinese offered a sacrifice to the moon to celebrate the harvest as they believe that the movement of the moon had a close relationship with changes of the seasons and agricultural production. Hence, moon cakes became the special offering and people eat them as a celebration.


Nowadays, moon cakes come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and flavors either with pastry or snow skin.  We are celebrating with our own mango moon cake using our mango jam for the snow skin and mango kaya for the filling. It's delish! Check out the recipe below.


Here's wishing all those who are celebrating "Happy Mid-Autumn Festival".



Homemade Mango Moon Cake



Recipe for Mango Moon Cake


Frankly, this is our first time making moon cake so we took the short cut by using pre-mix powders which makes the whole process so much easier. We also bought ready made Koh Fun which is actually fried glutinous powder. Koh Fun is used for handling the dough and can also be used to thicken the filling so that it can be shaped into a ball.  


The Dough - Use 1 packet of the the 280 gm snow skin pre-mix powder which includes 50 gm of shortening. The powder basically consist of Koh Fun and powdered sugar. You can opt to replace the shortening with any suitable cooking oil. Instead of the water and coloring, we replaced them with 200 gm of mango jam blended to become puree. Knead all of these ingredients together to become a dough. If the dough is too dry, add a little more water. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.


The FillingPour 1 jar (270 gm) of mango kaya into a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of Koh Fun and mix together until thickened. Use some koh fun on your hand and shape the mango kaya into balls.


Use a dollop of the dough and flatten it on your palm. Put 1 ball of mango kaya into the dough and shape it into a bigger ball. Use a mould to shape it into a moon cake. We used this mini sized moon cake mould which is so easy and convenient. In total, we made about 15 pieces of mini sized mango moon cake. Refrigerate and serve cold. Try it and good luck!

CORPORATE GIFT HAMPERS
