The KetchUp Community

Monday, March 28, 2016

What is KetchUp?
KetchUp is a community that offer an unique experience for the cafe-hopping crowds to rediscover cafe spaces.
In short, it gives us the experience to catch up with people; to really sit down and talk with each other on the experience of each of our journey regardless its on blogging or social media platform.
On the launch of the community, KetchUp has organized a "36 Cafes, 36 Bloggers, 6 Days, 6 Neighborhoods" campaign.
The sentence says it all.
Yes, 36 cafes in 6 days (3 weekends) with 36 bloggers/social influencer in 6 different neighborhood. 

On the last weekend, I was fortunate enough to be invited by the KetchUp Community on the launch of at Damansara Utama/Jaya area, which was on the 19th of March.
Here's the cafes that we have covered the other day.

Unfortunately because I have events at other places the other day, I only covered 4 cafes; the ones from 1 PM onwards.

The Third Stop (which was my first stop with the KetchUp Community) is Frisson Coffee Bar
As usual, it is PACK during the weekend especially when its lunch hour (I'm a frequent customer there)

Check out the Dessert Bar just on the left when you enter the shop
Frisson has a different bar just for making desserts (pancakes, toast etc)
Love the seats at the dessert bar; gives a different feels of the overall cafe
Here's the food given to us by the owner, Daren.
This foods was newly launch on November last year
From the left: P. TrippleB French Toast, Donut Ringmaster Burger (My favourite!!) and Wessy Waffle Wurger

Our Fourth stop is The Good Batch.
Who wouldn't know Good Batch? It has been there even before I was official active in Instagram.
Yet it was actually my first time stepping in.
And of course as expected, Good Batch is also FULL HOUSE.

The very "instagrammable" wall that everybody took whenever they're here
Here's the foods and drinks given to us by the owner, Caroline.
However we was told that this item are yet to launch. I guess we are the lucky ones to try it first ;)

Our fifth stop is Battery Acid Club.
If I'm not mistaken, this cafe start their business early of last year.
Yet my first visit here was this year around January.
Battery Acid Club is located at Damansara Utama, few km away from Damansara Uptown and is well hidden among the row of car workshops.
Just if you're wondering, this is how it looks like from the outside.
 And yes, they don't have a signboard
From the left is the counter. Trust me, this cafe really shined out the minimalist style well.
They have a small room at the end which showcase some of the uniques stuff they're selling

One of the rack that was showcased in the room.
Reminds me of Snackfood, from Bangsar.
Here's the foods and dessert that was given by the owners, Swiss and Aaron.

From the top left: Miso Espresso Baked Chicken, Sweet Potato Fritters and Cendol Cake *slurp*

Last but not least, our last stop of the day is Milligram located at Taman Mayang
And again another cafe which I have yet to visit until that other day.
Been wanting to visit this place so badly because I saw lot of pretty pictures from Instagram.

Here's the generous amount of foods that was given by the owners, Robbie and Trincy.
Really very generous that I didn't even take my dinner the other day because I was too full from all these foods.

From the top left: Smoke Pork Bacon Pasta, The Lazy Pig (Pork Cutlet), Nestum Bacon French Toast, Kilogram Breakkie and Bac + Cheese

Yes I know, blog with foods are supposed to be reviewed; how's the taste, price range etc.
But I was told that this post is to dedicate on how the Community works, how this campaign brought all of us together.

So, here's what I'm gonna say.
Overall from this campaign, I'm glad that I am one of the selected bloggers (though I'm more of an Instragrammer than a blogger) to attend the launch of KetchUp.
It was pretty exciting to meet new people from different platforms; I do get to know some new friends :D
Also from this campaign, I got to know all of the stories from the cafe owners on how they started their cafe, where they got their inspiration etc which was something I would never thought of asking the cafe owners. I'm always going in to a cafe, sit down, order my food, snap photo, eat, pay my bill and chow.
So yeah, this campaign gave me the opportunity to know something new.

Last but not least, I really do appreciate the effort put in by all of the cafe owners on spoiling us with so many good foods, sharing us their stories etc. And of course to team KetchUp, THANK YOU for having me along :)
Do check out this website for any updates on their upcoming events
