Joe and Dough CNY goodies // Ci Yuan Hawker Centre // SOD cafe

I honestly have too many CNY goodies at home now. πŸ˜‚

Ytd I received a set from Joe and Dough. 😊

Consist of pandan gula melaka cake, golden pineapple tarts and citrus butter cookies.

Citrus butter cookies, $18.80.

Pineapple tarts, $23.80.

I actually prefer the citrus butter cookies to pineapple tarts!😁 love the citrusy taste and melt in the mouth texture of the cookies!

This pineapple tart isn't my favourite lah. πŸ˜‚

I like the pastry (very buttery!πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ») but not the pineapple filling. It's a bit too sweet I feel.

But what I'll highly recommend is the pandan gula Melaka cake! $52 for a whole cake.

The last time I tried was a year ago, the cake was a bit too dry for my liking. But now the cake has improved so much! It's buttery and moist! Love it so much that meow meow and I had half of the cake to ourselves for supper. πŸ˜‚


This was our supper after I came back from my hawker feast. We had the cake with ice cream!😁

Had ice cream because we needed to clear out space for more to load our CNY food!

Parents have been buying lots of seafood, meat and what not to stock up for CNY! It's always like this every CNY. We have 4 fridges on standby btw.πŸ˜‚

Satisfied my craving for hawker food @ Ci Yuan Ytd!😁

It's one of the new generation of hawker center of you don't know. 😊

One very special thing about Ci Yuan Hawker Center is the self payment kiosks!

The one and only in Singapore yo~

At first I was quite skeptical? Like will the elderly be able to use?😳 because Hougang is ultimately quite an old estate ya?

But after trying out, it's actually like simple!

The stall owner will key in your order, after which the amount that you need to pay will be shown on the screen. Just insert the amount of money and it will be smart enough to even give you the exact change!😱

Talk about technology here.πŸ˜ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Oh ya! This entire hawker center is managed and run by Fei Siong Food Management Pte Ltd!

You know the one that sells fried bee hoon and fried mee at almost all shopping centre's food hall?πŸ˜‚

This is a normal portion for 2 of us. 😁

Because @misstamchiak recommended this stall, so I tried. 😁

Char Kway Teow, $3.80.

So happy that my craving was finally satisfied!!!😍😍😍😍

#overheard an uncle said 'wa, this girl has so much chilli on her plate!'

Hokkien Mee, $4.

The chilli sauce was very spicy! But.. The mee itself wasn't nice at all. Not flavourful at all!😳

Calories wasted.😩

I recommend chomp chomp's hokkien mee if you're around the area!😊

Did I mention there were 2 pathetic prawns only.'πŸ˜‘

I heard the kway chap here is nice?

Ps: I always do my research before going to a particular place! Hahaha!πŸ€—

So apparently ieatishootipost recommended this kway chap lah.


Can I say it was quite horrible?😬

I was looking forward to eating the big and small intestines. But they were the worst intestines I've ever eaten. 😩

It's not like they were not clean. It's clean! But I think they have overcooked the intestines? So rubbery.πŸ˜‘

The saving grace was really the plate of CKT. πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Even the mung bean ball was bad. 😩

If I ever return it will be for the CKT. Hahaha!

Anyway, the Yong tau Foo and lor mee here look promising! Maybe I'll try them the next time.😁

Both of us are putting on significant weight. πŸ˜‚

Anyway, not to worry that you'll not know which CKT stall I'm referring to. Because there's no replication of the same food here!

Meaning every stall will sell a unique item. πŸ‘πŸ»

Guess who suggested dessert after that?πŸ˜‚

It's just outside ci yuan hawker center and I was still a bit hungry. So.... 😁

Almost wanted to get the rainbow cake!

In the end in was still my favourite waffles and ice cream. πŸ˜‚

Charcoal waffles with golden vanilla ice cream.

Don't expect good ice cream here.

The waffles is the kind that is crispy and dense. But I think a bit tasteless. πŸ˜‚

This is the first time when I really finished all the maple sauce because it was so tasteless. 😳

The good thing about 2 of us being in the same line is that we know and understand the challenges that each of us is facing. ☺️

We when for a slow jog just now because we are very unaware of how unhealthy our diets are. πŸ˜‚

Anw, we we jogged we also talked about the difficulties that we are facing now.

Not bad right? Can talk and jog at the same time. πŸ˜‚

I like how we are able to give constructive advice to each other. Like I really feel so much better after the chat.☺️

Our problems may not be solved from the talk, but we definitely felt more relieved? Or rather, not so stressed or tensed. ☺️

Sometimes, it's really good to just talk and share about your problem! It may not solve anything after that but at least you won't feel so trapped or troubled. 😊

Can I just say that everyday after I'm home, I could literally just collapse and sleep?πŸ˜‚

In fact I just dozed off. πŸ˜³πŸ˜…

So so so tried!!! 😩

Steam milk! 😊

You can find the recipe on my blog!

Before I forget. Head to my Instagram for a giveaway that I'm hosting with Lee Kum Kee!😊

Dinner tonight with meow meow!😁

Fried Hong Kong style noodles served with dancing chef's suki sauce!😊

First had this suki sauce during one of our CNY steamboat gathering and everyone loved this! Haha!

It's not even spicy at all. It's like a dipping sauce that goes really well with almost everything?😁

From now till 29th Jan, buy 2 bottles of the suki sauce at $4.98! Usual price is $2.85! 😊

Currently. πŸ˜‚

Mummy loves the citrus butter cookies!

I'm really sorry to all the people who has emailed me and I've not replied. Or I've rejected their events and etc.

I'm so tired that I can't even bring myself to reply a proper email. 😩

Goodnight everyone~ my Friday tml is going to be a very long one. πŸ˜‘
