We're a Juice Best of 2011 Nominee!

What a pleasant surprise: we've been nominated for Best Hipster Hangout in Juice Magazine's Best of 2011! To be honest, we're not quite sure we'll win at all, but it doesn't even matter— having been to almost all the places on this list (and meeting the people who run them), this little 2 year old space in Subang Jaya is well proud to be in such great company! Thank you Juice for the nomination! Click on the image to cast your vote and take the rest of the poll. 

Now that we've closed up shop to move back home, we wonder if this means The Cookie Cat At Home will be a hipster hangout next ;)



It's our birthday yet again! The Cookie Cat turns 2 years old today— which means closing up our little bake shop in Subang Jaya and moving back home for a new beginning. My mother Z will be baking from home and she's pretty excited about it. Just in case you're curious:

Q: Why close the shop? Is business bad? 

A: Not at all, we're grateful to be regularly blessed with awesome customers and familiar faces :) It's simply because we want to move back home, that's all.

Q: Why move back home? 

A: Well for starters, we've been home less and less. I suppose after two years in a small shop, we do get homesick. If we're at home more I'd imagine some of the things we could do would be to

  • chill out on the couch
  • play with kittens in the back garden
  • push furniture around
  • maybe have friends over
  • experiment with more recipes
  • open up a flea market on weekends once in awhile
  • make delivery trips according to custom orders
  • make delivery trips according to areas, eg. Putrajaya
  • make delivery trips to offices (would you like it if we packed lunch for you & colleagues?)
  • look into supplying baked goodies for other places
— all in between baking for you and everyone else. By going back to our roots, the possibilities seem endless, and that's what we find most exciting.

Q: Where is home?

A: We live in Sri Hartamas— right between the Damansara suburbs and the KL city center— so we personally feel this makes us far more accessible for pick-ups and deliveries compared to Subang Jaya.

Q: Does this mean I can't buy just one cookie anymore? 

A: Of course you can! Even if Z is busy with custom orders, chances are we'll still have a few jars of fresh cookies in our kitchen just for people like you :) Just text, email or call TheCookieCat to ask what she has.

Lots of love & looking forward,
