Hi Wendywy and Anncoo,

Thanks for dropping by. :)
If I did roast the ground hazelnut in the first place it will be more fragrant and yummy.

Hi there,
I contacted you a while ago but not sure if you got my original message so I hope you don't mind me contacting you again to see if this is of interest to you & your readers.

As I mentioned before I'm working on something which we would love to have your support of and we hope that it would benefit your readers.

The first element is an online jingle contest - SIS Jingle Jam - where families record their own version of the original SIS Sugar Jingle. I hope this would appeal to your readers as there are on offer a range of premium Philips equipment and tools to help them with their culinary pursuits. For more information about the Jingle Jam and prizes up for grabs see the Facebook fan page http://tinyurl.com/2f2n6r7

The second element is a bit of a celebration of all things sweet down at Palawan Beach, Sentosa on 7th & 8th August being held in conjunction with the filming of the Great Singapore Cook Off!. The day will include mixing and icing demonstrations for mums and kids - to try their hand at mixing and decorating with prizes for creativity, cupcake decoration contest, sampling of nostalgic treats and more. We would love for you to join us as our guest on one of the days if you would be free and able. If of interest I can forward you the schedule.

Lastly, we would love for you to guest post a favourite sweet recipe of yours to the SIS Sugar Fan Page and perhaps even provide us with a sweet tip of the week. We really hope this become a great place where people come together and share their recipes and love of sweet things. We would hope that this would help you attract some new followers. The page can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/SIS-Sugar/110188989033875?ref=search

These are all just ideas are none are by any means obligatory! It would good to hear your thoughts on what you think would work for you, your blog, and your readers.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Happy Flour,

I didn't get a reply to my last email so I thought I'd drop you a line as this campaign is now live and we would love to still have your support and hope that it would benefit your readers.

Just to recap, the first element is an online jingle contest - SIS Jingle Jam - where families record their own version of the original SIS Sugar Jingle. I hope this would appeal to your readers as there are on offer a range of premium Philips equipment and tools to help them with their culinary pursuits.

Hi Talya,

Sorry, for the late reply. I intended to drop you a mail but I faced some difficulty access to my web page or other internet page lately. My neighbours also facing the same problem as me.

Back to your comment. You had lined up more interesting programs I'm sure my reader will be interested to join in the 'Sugar Fun'. If you don't mind I will post your programs on my blog to share with my readers. And I'm interested to post my recipe on your web page, can you advice how can I go about it.
