Back to you 💓 I felt more like wanton mee today but it was not meant to be. It was closed 😔
Taking photos/videos of a cat pooping 💩💩
Damn funny la this kinda thing also want to take. The poor cat must feel thoroughly embarrassed 😹
Old Seng Choong
Afternoon tea party for one yesterday 👅🍰
My Taobao placemats are really handy after all 😂 Can you imagine how boring this would look without it? It's all in the details 😜
So anyway, back to these yummy old school delights from #OldSengChoong that @janine_99 kindly sent my way (thank you!).
She actually approached me a while back, but my parents were both under the weather for some time, so I decided to wait till they were better to enjoy them together 🤗
She was so generous to send these my way:
Uncle Seng's Apple Pie 🍎🍰
My mouth was watering as I took the pie out of the box because I really love me a good apple pie!
There's just something about traditional bakes that always make me choose them over the newer hipster ones like red velvet and what not.
Appearance wise, it definitely baked perfectly and I really couldn't wait to sink my teeth into a slice!
Hehe you'll see that I really did so in a bit 😅
This dark good-looker is their Matcha & White Choc Butter Cake (Teh Cho-co-lat Gu You Gek).
When my sis and I first saw the cake, we were confused because it was so brown LOL where's the matcha?! But all was revealed after we cut into it! 🤣
Look at that beautiful matcha green 🍵
This was what made Toby run over from wherever he was because it smells heavenly! We had to distract him with a toy just to get him away from the cakes. I'm sure he would give it a huge chomp if we let him be 😹
Their butter cakes are a little dense and is a little dry to some, but I really like it! I think it's very moist leh? 😂 Is it my tastebuds different?
This taste somehow reminded me of the skin of traditional mooncakes! My fav type of mooncakes.
Slight bitterness from the matcha balanced out the sweetness from the white chocolate very well and I found myself enjoying it more with each bite.
I don't think I can take more than a slice in one sitting though. It does get a little jelat because it's dense. Not as fluffy as others I've tried.
OHYAS the original and traditional plain Butter Cake (Gu You Gek) 🤤
First bite, I can really taste the richness of the butter and surprisingly, it doesn't make me feel like gagging.
I need to clarify that it's nothing to do with the cake, but I'm just not the biggest fan of butter in general! So I thought that it's denseness + richness would be too much for me, but I'm happy that it proved me wrong 🤗
IT WAS DELICIOUS.
I wolfed it down in no time 😂 I can imagine this to go so well with a 🍵!
Remember I mentioned that I couldn't wait to dig into the apple pie?
I wasn't kidding 😂
Will you look at that golden slice of perfection? 🤤 Drooling, drooling.
It's filled with Granny Smith apples, juicy sweet raisins to cut the slight tartness from the apples, and if you're a true cinnamon lover like myself, you'll definitely be able to taste that in the mix too 💕
My Mom couldn't resist the thought of apple pie with vanilla icecream that she got my helper to buy some after dinner, for dessert! 😂 We are definitely dedicated to our sweets!
So happy to be able to share these traditional bakes with my family and my friends 😘 (brought it to work, and everyone enjoyed it –apple pie especially!)
