sorry..

It is imperative to inform you lovelies that as of today, unfortunately due to price hikes on our raw material recently, we are unable to offer our '3 for ....' or '2 for ....' online anymore.

Tres pardon!

We're blue about this as you are :(

On the bright side of things, at least these deals will still be available at bazaars / markets!! All the more reason for y'all to come to visit BonBonniere :)

*bisou* bonbon in the papers!

We are so thrilled to be in the papers!! *bisou* bonbon ♥ Selangor Times :)

This marks a great milestone for *bisou* bonbon. We are very grateful from the bottom of our hearts for our lovely customers and the attention given by the media. Merci beaucoup.. Not forgetting friends and family who have offered moral support and time in exchange of nothing. We are so touched by everyone's love. Thank you thank you again. We sound like we've just won The Golden Globes, don't we?

When we tried to explain to our sister what Selangor Times was, she equated it to the London Evening Standard. Obviously ST is not really of that scale but it's a nice fuzzy feeling to know that we're in Malaysia's version of the Evening Standard!


Special thanks to Gan Pei Ling for the highlight. You really made our day!


Selangor Times is a complimentary inter-state circulation newspaper that can be picked up in the places mentioned below:


You can read the article in the 5-7th Aug 2011 edition. We can't wait to get it laminated!

the inspiration behind cho cho san

We bought a Butterfly Pea plant from Bettr Weekends afew moons ago.

It's now a full-blown Clittoria bush *giggles*




This perennial creeper is native to tropical Asia and is relatively easy to grow (it survived our definitely-not-green fingers!). It's commonly used to colour the Nyonya kuih ketan and Kelantanese nasi kerabu :) Their deep blue petals are rich with anthocyanin which exudes anti-oxidant flavonoids that combat against free-radicals!




One morning, as we stared out our window onto the blue ladies, we were suddenly reminded of Cho-Cho-San of Puccini's Madame Butterfly! Butterfly Pea.. Madame Butterfly.. coincidence? We don't think so. Serendipity we say! Ahh... Cho-Cho-San. We found her to be a naive little girl with such unwavering love and true Japanese grit.




So we whipped up a small batch of ground Japanese rice and adzuki beans along with the other *bisou* bonbon body scrub goodness like shea butter, Manuka honey and the lot resulting in a delicate Asian body scrub.


Piece de resistance!
