matcha black sesame cake + the barking oak @ simpang


Attempting to act young. Lol!

Weather was too hot so I thought I'll just tie up my hair. πŸ˜‚ The last time I actually tied my hair out was... Donkey years back. πŸ˜‚

Just bear with my need to play with my rare ponytail. πŸ˜‚


The matcha black sesame cake from ytd. ☺️

Imperfect side. πŸ˜” not enough matcha filling. 😒

So happy when I sliced it. 😍

Bro approved of the cake too! Of course because of the not too strong matcha and black sesame taste. πŸ˜‚

Of course as a fan of both I think the black sesame and matcha taste can be stronger. πŸ˜‚

Right now for this black sesame taste is stronger than matcha.

The colour of the black sesame is so much lighter than the one I made for my bday too! That shows how much BS I have reduced. πŸ˜‚

Mummy said she can't wait to eat when I sent her this photo. πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ

Thankful for the family who is always so supportive of my bakes! Especially my parents!

They always say 'my daughter baked one of course nice.'

Their mouths sweeter than my cakes please!πŸ˜‚

But still, I feel so much love! Similarly, from my big bear too! Thankfully he met me after I have accumulated more experience with baking. πŸ˜‚

Then Mr Tan and I went to bedok marketplace for a lunch tasting!


the burning oak. One that specializes in Japanese yakitori. But in a more innovative way! In terms of their marination, sauces and the way they grill their meat!

Actually the whole concept at the newly renovated bedok marketplace is quite cool? Very old school like the 50s/60s Singapore.

And the food definitely smells good!! We were so attracted to the smell of the Penang char kway teow when we were waiting for our food. πŸ˜‚

Currently still nameless. πŸ˜‚

But this is a soft boiled egg in homemade sauce!

Soft boiled egg was πŸ‘πŸ˜‹

But the homemade sauce was too salty for my liking. :/

Curry risotto balls.

Best eaten when hot!πŸ‘ tasted somewhat like croquettes to me, which is a good thing because I like it!πŸ˜‚

The yakitori that we have tried. 😊

Pork belly with apply & capsicum purée.

My least fav?πŸ˜‚

pork belly was quite tasteless if not for the purée. In fact the purée outshine the meat?πŸ˜…

Chicken thigh. Meat was quite tender, but not very impressive.

Iberico pork cheek. This is $5 per stick! The previous 2 were $1.50 per stick btw.

Expensive because it's iberico pork of course. πŸ˜‚

Hot fav among many of us!πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Chicken meatball.

I love this leh! So juicy and moist the meatball!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

72 hours slow cooked beef short ribs.

Very special because Guinness stout is use to marinate the meat!

Whoa! My fav dish!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ basically my table's fav dish. πŸ˜‚ some doesn't like it because of the strong Guinness taste (him) while others thing that it's too beefy.

I'm seriously turning into a beef lover now. πŸ˜‚

This is $6 per stick yo!

Basically everything is quite affordable except for this short ribs and the iberico pork.😁

The have interesting alcoholic drinks too! Alcohol and meat is like perfect match! Especially when the weather is so hot. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

This one a bit too bitter to my liking. πŸ˜‚

Oh! Forgotten about this grilled green chilli! Not spicy at all, no worries.πŸ˜‚

Btw, if you're here at bedok marketplace, don't forget to try the ice latte at the drink stall! πŸ‘πŸ‘ we didn't know until the other foodies bought it! Haha.

Basically a protein-loaded lunch. πŸ˜‚

We actually wanted to head to fat cat to eat somemore but I have dental appointment at 430pm and we don't seem to have enough time. :(

But he promised to bring me there next time~ yay!😁

Managed to drop by our fav tau huay place before my dental appointment.

The tau huay here is very very very smooth! In our opinion, better than rochor and selegie! Also, they don't use sweet sugar syrup, instead they use freshly made soy milk! πŸ‘

This place also has a special place in our hearts because it's one of the places he brought me to before we got together. ☺️

still remember those silly moments we had. πŸ™Šβ€οΈ

N&B snacks!

They have quite a few outlets if not wrong!:)

Gonna miss him tml. πŸ˜”

But he's really busy this period so I don't want to disturb him as well..

Weird that I'm the one shaking legs now because I'm always the busy one. πŸ˜‚
