Baci is part of the Chaswood Group of restaurant. Pinch of Salt Card members will get a cup of complimentary coffee on World Coffee Day, that's happening today, on 29th Sept 2014. 
Its petite looking card says it all.

Read about the BACI STORY here

Baci is a place to savour the good things in life. Fresh cafe styled food, quality Italian Coffee served fresh, it is a great place to relax and chill with the company of friends.

Oh Yes, it's self service. Clearly written at the entrance door.

As I stepped in, this place mezmerises me with its European charm.
           Step right up to the counter and place your orders as this is a self service cafe.
                    The General Manager, Quenton was very warm and friendly. 
                                 I told him that this was my first visit to Baci.
                                        I had my flat white and it was heavenly. 

Coffee prices are reasonable, given the cosy and relaxing European inspired coffee place atmosphere. 

Besides coffee, this place also offers a variety of mouth watering gourmet handmade sandwiches. Food presentation was great too.
Check out the variety of bread. From Baguette to Panini's, one is spoilt for choice.

Cakes are aplenty too!
Tantalizing cakes!
Happy Rainbow Cakes. Gosh! The sight of this is pure joy.
They even have pies too!

How thoughtful. Lemon Water is spotted at the side to quench one's thirst.
Noticed some seating at the sides that were of Japanese influence.
That's because there's a Japanese International school nearby this neighbourhood. 
And I see some of these children around here having their lunch.
My girlfriend had the Berry Sensation Red Leaf Tea. 
Tea comes with refill and served in such a cute cup.
We also tried their pizza as I am a fan of pizzas, especially Italian Pizza.
My verdict: It was really good. And I mean it. The crust was crunchy. 
Topped with rich toppings. This just made my day.
This was the Turkey Han Hawaian. It comes in a standard size (8 pieces) 
Priced at RM 16.90, it's a steal!
After my first cup of coffee, I then tried their freshly squeezed juices. 
Priced at RM 9.90 per cup.

The crowd builds up close to lunch time and can be pretty packed. 
See, it's almost full now.
Comfort seat. 
Look there's even a nice long sofa at the corner to cater for bigger groups.
This was sighted close to the entrance of the outlet. A cosy corner for two.

Jurlique Nutri-Define with Biosome 5

The kind people of Jurlique invited me to experience their latest anti-aging range, 
the Nutri Define with Biosome 5 at their Masterclass event yesterday.

Speaking at the event was Ms Terri, Jurlique's Trainer from Hong Kong. 
This gorgeous lady shared with us the superstars of the day, 
the Jurlique Nutri-Define with Biosome 5 Anti-Aging range.

She also shared with us the brand story of Jurlique.

For those who are new to this brand, here is Jurlique's story.
Jurlique believes that it is impossible to manufacture pure skin care, that is why they grow it instead. Their mission is to produce the purest, most effective skincare through nature, science and innovation. The brand is more than organic. It's biodynamic! 
They are the experts in plant optimization.

The Jurlique story

29 years ago, a quiet location at Adelaide Hills was discovered. Peaceful and pristine. This is where Jurlique founded their Biodynamic Farm. Their harvests have been free to follow the rhythms of nature. 

Biodynamic farming delivers all the benefits of organic and more
It involves completely forgoing chemicals and adhering to biological practices such as soil enrichment and regeneration.

Some of the VIP guests at the event who were given a chance to test out this range.
Evoking our senses, we were given a sniff of these 5 Active ingredients found in this range.

Horseradish (Cochlearia Armorcia): Helps with skin firmness and improves elasticity

Mulberry (Morus Alba Root Extract) : High in antioxidants and phenolic compounds.                                                                         Protects against environmental aggressors and
                                                                Aids in brightening the skin tone.

Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis): Invigorates and rejuvenates the skin

Peppermint (Mentha Piperita): Revitalizes dull skin and improves uneven skin texture

Glycogen: Firms and cares of stressed skin. 
                   Reinforces the dermal defence for skin firming benefits.

With the combination of these 5 powerful anti-aging ingredients, a new star is born.

Presenting the Superstars for the day.

VIP Nirmala testing out the product with assistance from the brand's  supervisors.
Hmm..smells good. Such a calming and relaxing scent. I loved it immediately.
Glides smoothly and is easily absorbed into my skin.
Some proven performance of the product.

Terri later on demonstrated the application technique and how to massage our face the correct way.

The crowd followed and guests had a hands on experience.

By October 2014, Jurlique will also introduce their new Nutri-Define Facial Treatment 
It's a 1 hour and 30 min treatment, priced at RM590.
For first trial, this Nutri-Define Facial Treatment can be enjoyed at RM333
We were the first to watch the demonstration by Sharmaine Pui, the trainer.
VIPS crowded around Sharmaine to view the process up clos. Her technique and the Jurlique products used for this treatment.  
This facial massage uses precious stones such as the jade and rose quarts to help cool, warm and relax the skin, leaving it redefined, replenished and revitalized.
I had a first hand experience to view it and the outcome was unbelievable. 
The "model of the day" ended with radiantly beautiful skin glowing from within after the treatment.

Seen here in the crowd is Ms Tina Tan (in black and smiling), the Operations Manager who explained to guests at the event the procedure and benefits of this facial treatment.

Lastly, I had the honour to have a photo opportunity with Jurlique's 
Sales & Marketing Mr Eddie Wong.
