We were at the official launch of Magnum KL a couple of days ago and despite the massive crowd, who were all eager and excited to have a look at the new store and sample its sweet offerings, we were treated to an incredible night of activities.

Magnum Kuala Lumpur is located at Mid Valley Megamall, KL.
