It's back! "Indulge" in the 17th annual Consumer Fair organized by Sunlit Sdn Bhd held at ICC from the 27th to the 31st of January 2016. As you would see each year, the consumer fair never fails to attract the local community with local and regional products. Expect to find food that will satisfy your cravings, unique products in the region and much more all in one place.

One of our local clothing lines found at the Consumer Fair.
The Lagenda apparel is designed and printed locally. You can find clothing items such as hats, t-shirts, jacktets and a couple of others at their booth. Find them on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/lagendaclothing/?fref=ts) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/lagenda_clothing/)
Mahkota Crystal is the only glass manufacturing studio in Brunei and has been around for 15 years. Their studio and gallery is located at Lambak Kanan Industrial Site. They make creative and unique pieces such as candleholder, vases, bowls and bottles. They also do custom orders.
Featured: Glass Turtle And Glass Perfume Bottle
An interesting art display by Belka that doubles up as an alternative wall coating. Its product is made up of 100% natural materials (cotton, decorative mineral stones and permissive additives). A couple of awesome facts about Belka are that, it is odourless, can be applied to various surfaces, can be easily removed or clean if required and a great alternative to wallpaper and paint.
For all Doraemon fans, young and old, it was a treat to see an array of merchandise available at the Consumer Fair. There was a whole section dedicated to Doraemon products!

Ocean Maze provided a fun 3-D ocean themed experience.
Got a photo op with the sharks!
One of my last finds was a stall that sold a variety of premium dates from Madinah, Saudi Arabia. A very helpful salesman at the booth shared with me the different types and textures of dates available. On sale that day were also freshly baked cinnamon rolls and porridge prepared with these premium dates made by a guest chef.
I enjoyed the unique treasures that I found in the little corners however, I would love to have seen a greater connection between the theme of the fair, "Life is Sweet...Indulge!" and what was actually on offer at the event. Nonetheless, another great success I feel, for Sunlit Sdn Bhd's 17th Consumer Fair. It was great discovering new products, both local and regional. I look forward to seeing more of these products in our market on the regular, and not just at big fairs like this one.
Till next time!
