THINKING of a picnic without the hassle of packing a basket full of goodies?
Well, Kuala Lumpur’s first picnic to-go brand is offering visitors and picnic-goers to the park a fully-integrated picnic experience.
Piknik Botanicana by Crimson Collective, a creative property management and lifestyle company founded by Arissa Lotz and Fizar Harun, was launched at Taman Botani Perdana featuring its ready-made picnic baskets costing RM69 each.
Piknik Botanicana’s picnic baskets can be purchased at Kia Klemenz Gifts & Souvenirs every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5.30pm.
The picnic baskets with delightful bakes is designed in partnership with Kenny Hills Bakers.
“It was important to us that we collaborated with a bakery that the community loves dearly, which was why partnering with Kenny Hills Bakers was our natural first instinct.
“We wanted to bring the experience of the bakery to the consumer and offer a service that would require our customers to forget having to lift a finger.
“Now you can pay for your picnic basket and picnic mat, enjoy your picnic and go home task-free,” said Fizar.
Each picnic basket is filled with food, nibbles and drinks including an assortment of pastries and sandwiches, nasi lemak and juices.
“During the movement control order, social interactions were limited to walking outdoors or having a small picnic and socialising over food as restaurants were not open to dine-ins.
“Like so many others, I spent my free time walking around Taman Botani Perdana and saw many families and friends frequenting the park enjoying intimate picnics, so it was clear to me that the market is there.
“I thought to myself, ‘there must be a way to fill the gap and streamline the experience of the way people picnic.’
“That’s when it clicked to me that I could marry the rise of trendy neighbourhood bakeries and the picnic activity together,” said Arissa.
