Birthday queen Mabs | Old Seng Choong

#ootd
γ€°

Time to go and meet the birthday queen πŸ‘ΈπŸ» Guess who?

When you secretly eat pineapple tarts because you don't want to share 😜

🍊🍊

Ya know CNY is around the corner when your house starts filling up with bottles of cny goodies!

#oldsengchoong sent these goodies last week and I'm afraid to say that this will not last till CNY πŸ˜‚

How cute are these tins of cookies!! Got them colonial vibes going on here, and reminds me so much of the Peranakan culture too.

I'm def gonna recycle them after we are done with the cookies πŸ€— What would you keep in the tin if you were me?

Give me some ideas!

Beauty lies in the little details γ€°

Hurriedly opened the Cereal Prawn 🍀 cookies first after capturing the shots – I love me anything prawn!!

If only you could smell how rich these were! Not your average CNY cookies, for sure heh heh

Melts in your mouth type of cookies and these had a distinct hae bee hiam taste which I enjoyed! Much like eating the prawn rolls itself.

Packs a punch too, this one 🌢

The other tin contains Earl Grey cookies, a safer choice for the less adventurous! πŸͺ

The taste of the earl grey tea in this cookie is very pronounced - just how I'd like it. Makes me crave for a hot cup of tea too!

I checked out their site and was so intrigued by the other unique flavours like ba kut teh? laksa?? and satay??? 😱

It's def not easy to incorporate these unique flavours into a cookie, I'm sure! If you try it, let me know how it goes πŸ™ŒπŸ»

My weakness:

PINEAPPLE TARTS 🍍🍍

I think I ate too many last year and never managed to shed off the weight gain from that 😫 devastatingly true.

I must practice some self control this time. See what happened this morning already!!!

Thank god these are individually sealed, else I would have finished half of it in one sitting πŸ˜…

Don't have to worry about your fav goodies going "lao hong" this way 😜 so thoughtful of you guys, OSC!

Oh I forgot to mention that the cookie tins come with some sort of stopper at the top to help keep the cookies crisp and good 😊 So appreciative of such thoughtful packaging!

I got the orange peel and spicy nonya flavours in my tin!

Look at that golden brown beauty 🍍 This feels like it's wallpaper worthy man. Is this pic my new lock screen wallpaper? πŸ˜‚

This is the orange peel flavour that I tried – thought I was gonna hate it because I'm not the biggest fan of most orange combinations but I was proven wrong!

The orange peel was finely chopped and added a nice crunch to the texture of the pineapple jam. It didn't have too strong an orange flavour overall so it was a πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» for me.

I really enjoyed this a lot!

I hear they have Yuzu too.. I wondering if that would top the orange peel one πŸ€”

Didn't try to the Nonya one yet but my dad did (by mistake, he didn't see the diff labels of flavours) and he said it was nice but spicy ah!

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ another savoury hae bee hiam combi that packs a punch! Beware!

Mighty pleased with these Mandarin orange bags that they sent with the goodies too 🍊🍊 so cute la!

Are these the signs of becoming an auntie? 😱

Anyway, if you wanna purchase the goodies, you can either head to their website (oldsengchoong.com) to place your order (better discounts end TODAY, so hurry!)

OR

Check out their physical store at Clarke Quay 01-48 to sample before you purchase!

Let me know what you guys think are the best flavours too leh! I'm thinking of getting more hehe

Lunch spot because we didn't make it in time for lunch at Supply & Demand 😭

So busy preparing gifts for others, even on her own birthday. Sacrificial birthday queen, @yeomabel πŸ‘ΈπŸ»

Dry truffle ramen for her and some char shu char han for me...

So photogenic but I find it ok only. Plus the price?!! Not worth it 😫

My charshu charhan which essentially is charshu fried rice loh πŸ˜‘ the description of the dish totally threw me off... I thought I was getting some kind of char shu don.

Chey!

Not nice either, too sweet 😞

What the queen wants, she gets.

She wanted to visit TTR and TCL so here's the first stop πŸ˜‚

Got tempted to try some outfits too 😜

This lace romper with trumpet sleeves is just so cute!

Perfect for CNY! I never thought I would like wine coloured lace, but now, I do 😍

Upcoming ruffles dress, in Navy botanical prints 🌿

Thought this piece would be too "girly" for me but it turned out to be ok! Was so tempted by it but I went with the solid colour in the end 🌝

Gotta think about the mileage amirite?

Mabs' bf for the day - found myself waiting among many bfs as their gfs wandering into the changing room, never to be seen again... for at least 15 mins πŸ˜‚

God, I feel their pain.

Found a photo taking spot indoors, away from the torrential downpour.

Not the best, but it'll do!

Home cooked noodles with YTF and roast duck is the best πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’• perfect for the cold weather brrrr

My mom saw this post and texted me "I want 3 tins of pineapple tarts" πŸ˜‚

It turns out she took 2 of the individually packed pineapple tarts, ate 1 and said "VERY NICE" 🌝

She didn't know that was the last of my orange peel ones and the rest are all the spicy nonya ones 😭😭😭😭 I CRI NOOO

So yes, I just ordered 3 tins to make up for it hahahaha must hide all 10 of them well so that I can slowly savour them.

Oh and I'm so amazed by their neighbourhood self collection points! So close to me πŸ‘πŸ» yay!
