Bagelier Bagels

Posted December 3rd, 2009 in Ume's Interests 13 Comments »

It’s been more than one year since Bagelier started its business.  Actually it wasn’t easy for the first few months…  I was surprised to know that people here don’t really like hard, dense, crusty bagels.  They prefer it soft and light. In my opinion it’s not a bagel though…  

Because of that, I had to change my recipe to match their needs.  The bagels at Bagelier were first very dense and heavy, but now they are lighter.  It’s almost impossible to make all the people love my bagels because everyone has different taste!  Ummm..  I’m happy to receive any comments or feedback of Bagelier’s bagels so that I can know the current recipe is good or bad.

Oh by the way, Wasabi & Green Tea in Victoria Park started to sell Bagelier bagels in store 🙂  If someone just wants to try out few bagels, you can buy from this shop.  I think they sell bagels frozen though… but there is no problem as bagels can be kept frozen for 3 months.  You just need to defrost, and either heat up in the microwave or toast.

Well, anyway I think I’m going to start promoting Bagelier products here on this blog.  So, please don’t feel annoyed :p

    Yo Ume! (that should be the name of your cooking show when you get one ^_^)
    Keeping talking about those bagels! I think people will see the light eventually and start to like real bagels.
    But I think bagels in Australia aren’t very well known at all 😛
    And now that you’ve told me that Wasabi and Green Tea do those bagels I going to go there today to get some!
    Thank you!

    I just visited the shop, and saw Bagelier bagels on the counter. If someone buys bagels from there I recommend to heat up in oven before eating. I think they should sell bagels in freezer instead of in room temperature to keep bagels as fresh as possible.

    Yo Ume!

    I’m sorry! I tried to find Wasabi and Green Tea but I couldn’t locate it 😛
    Is it near the Causeway?

    Anyways, I think you should start a Facebook page for Bagelier.
    My girlfriend and I have about 3-4 small businesses and we have a page for each one. It’s a great way to tell lots of people about your business and the best thing is it’s free! ^_^

    If you made a Bagelier page, I’d definately join and tell all my friends!

    Oh, it’s a pretty small shop and I couldn’t find it the first time :p The shop is in front of a small petrol station, and is next to a beads shop.

    Many people told me to create facebook too. You have 3 businesses! What business? I will try making bagelier page soon next year. Thank u 🙂

    We run an entertainment company that supplies dancers, actors, singers and performers in general to the public for either private or corporate functions. This business also puts on variety shows so we can showcase local talents to people who wouldn’t normally get to see them.
    We also run a carbaret troupe of dancing girls, a online womens clothing store and a online store that sells fascinators (fancy headwear for ladies)
    I’m also thinking of starting up an accessory store for guys online…. plus I’m studying next year and my girlfriend works fulltime…we are both very busy 😛

    Can’t wait to see the Bagelier page ^_^

    WOW you both must be super busy… I guess you employ some people for your business?
    I like hard-working people! Give me a motivation :_)

    Uhhhh no… we pretty much do everything ourselves.
    Some of the girls help with dances and costumes and small things, but we buy all the stock, unpack and store it at our house (which is very small >_<) make the sites, take the photos, maintain the sites, contact performers, make bookings etc.
    And I do all the cooking and cleaning because my girlfriend does most of the other stuff hahaha!
    Yeah hard working people make me kinda motivated too…. otherwise I’ll just feel bad for being so lazy 😛

    You are a good boyfriend! And I can’t imagine how busy everyday is…
    Even taking photos of products are tiring!

    I’m actually thinking to start up an online retail shop for non-food items sometime in the future. My house is definitely too small to store all the stuff, so it’s the problem..
    Anyway, ganbatte!
