Updated on 16th June 2019: Oven going to be 12 years old soon!
Yes! Yes! Yes! I’ve finally bought an oven. It all started when I was looking through The Star paper few weeks back and chance upon an advertisement by Kee Huat Radio showcasing their free standing Europa OvenMate electric oven.
We visited Kee Huat Radio’s showroom at Sea Park last Saturday. Our main objective is to have a look and get information about that oven. From what I gathered from the sales person, Europa OvenMate is an Italian brand, all internal oven parts are made from Italy but is assemble in Kee Huat Radio’s plant at Shah Alam.
Would you have a yellow or red oven in your kitchen? No right? Ugly hor? That’s why they stop selling color oven. But my mom said they’re pretty.
There are also free standing cookers (cooker + oven),
Clothes dryer and washing machine samples at the showroom.
This free standing electric oven, Valencia retails at RM1198 but is selling at a discounted price of RM980.

We didn’t plan to buy the oven on the day itself. But due to the persuasiveness of the salesperson and my dad (would you believe it he said: Buy now la. Since we’re already here. Do you want to make another trip here?), we bought the oven.
Come meet my new oven, Europa OvenMate VALENCIA 688E. Yeah it’s cute and short hor. We placed Miss Valencia on a wooden stand. To make her taller, we place our microwave on her head.
Currently I’m looking for a dog cake recipe. I promised Chester I will bake a cake for his birthday. As for you guys, I can only show ‘mouth-watering’ cookies and cake pictures lor.
p/s: I would like to express my displeasure at the staff who attended us. This is the first time in my life as a customer that I was told to unpack our purchase from the store room all by ourselves. It wasn’t easy unpacking the oven because the oven was surrounded by planks that are nailed together. We were brought to the back room and dad was asked to disengage the planks with a hammer. Where was that staff? Attending another customer outside.
Too bad I’ve already paid for the oven. If not I would storm out of there immediately.
