I’m sorry for the lack of updates but you know, it’s post-holiday syndrome T__T and I’m still recuperating from it. That’s the thing with holidays, you go for a short trip but take a long time to recover from it. BUT the good news is that before you even know it, you’re on your next holiday again! YAY! Now that’s happiness for me!
What about you ? What is happiness to you?
It’s fun, laughter, good times with your family and friends. For moms and dads, spending valuable times with your children is happiness, and is most hard to come by for working parents. For children, their happiness is when his or her family, spends time with them, doing even the most simplest of thing; building toys, painting, watching a movie together, cycling, or even masak-masak. Now, family bonding moments are not only reserved for just on Sundays, it can be at every dinner time, or Saturday brunch, or whenever you feel like having an ice cream.
Inspired by classic fairy tales, Wall’s Selection has put together 15 how-to videos and recipes using ice cream and a few colourful condiments and fruits to recreate fairy tales that everyone can taste! Moms, dads, aunts and uncles and kiddos can have fun bonding while using their creativity to recreate these stories or any favourite animated movies at home.
Check out more videos here on their youtube channel.
So cute right ? Combined with sensory taste, wonderful flavor and vibrant colors, the Scoops of Happiness campaign adds a twist to treasured fairy tales and popular animated movies by bringing these stories to life.
Shawn Tan, Brand Manager for Wall’s Ice Cream, Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd said, “Family bonding is crucial for kids as they grow up. Parents sometimes find that work commitments and routine family commitments deter them from spending meaningful bonding moments with kids. The Scoops of Happiness campaign is all about enabling and inspiring the family to bond over ice-cream and stories that is full of fun and enjoyable for the whole family.”
During their recent launch, instagram phenomenon Samantha Lee was also presence to show us some ideas on how we can make ice cream food art. She is a mother of two girls, who makes whimsical, colourful, imaginative and healthy meals for her two young daughters. Samantha shares her creations on her instagram (IG: @leesamantha). Her creativity to inspire her kids to look forward to each mealtime instantly captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of fans around the world and today Samantha is a global online sensation and an Instagram star with more than 500k followers.
“My passion is combining food and art to tell a story and to make kids happy. I am glad to be part of the Wall’s Scoops of Happiness campaign as it promotes healthy family values and family bonding. It is also about telling stories that bring joy to kids,” said Samantha.
Us attendees also had our hands on to making these ice cream food art! I was in a team with Jean and Sabrina and we immediately put our “ahem” creative minds to work. With little experience in this, we managed to create this Cinderella, her carriage and her fairy godmother using ice cream and other candies and fruits.
Well, we thought the fairy godmother looked cuter than miss Cinderella herself, but we can’t help but to doll up Cinderella’s eyes with some dolly wink lashes to make up for her lack of bouncy curly hair.
Now if you are intrigued about getting your children to help you create the an edible fairytale with ice cream, get started!
