樸苑小食館 @ Kuala Lumpur


Thanks to our dear friends for taking us to this hidden treasure…

It would never come across my mind to walk into a place like this if I pass by…

Quite a busy place, still have people walking in when we left around 9pm.

Waku Ghin @ Marina Bay Sands


This restaurant is sure very popular, we could only get the earlier dining session even though we booked more than a week in advance. Excellent choice to celebrate hubby’s birthday though.

Gyokuro – very special green tea – very light in color but very strong taste…like tasting leaves off a tree

Hummingbird layer cake


Made this for hubby’s birthday…baked each layer separately using 8-inch pans. Felt like something was not right..maybe the bananas were not properly ripen.

Apart from their coffee, dinner not bad as well. Too bad didn’t get to have their cheese board this time.

My 1st fondant project


Have been trying to avoid using fondant cause I don’t like to eat them but I must say they are best for kids celebration cake/cupcake.

And I have finally done it for F’s birthday.

There is no fondant here but the mini figures are too cute

Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time, could have done better
