Lately I’ve been trying to get healthier with green smoothies (that are heavier on the fruits and sweetness) every morning, experimenting with interesting flavour combinations and whatever I find in my freezer and fridge
The salted caramel macaron from Thierry is stunning! Also spotted their mango lime macaron and had to give that a try, too. Macarons have to be one of my favourite quick pick-e-up desserts.
Timothy’s is apparently pretty famous around here, but we didn’t realise that when we stopped in, we were just lured in by the fact that their fruit frozen yoghurt is blended on the spot! Worth the hype, especially in the midst of a heatwave!
Had a craving for a childhood favourite… roti prata dipped in condensed milk. The only thing I was missing was a spoonful of Milo powder.
I’ve been looking for a replacement for the amazing White Rabbit ice cream sticks that I found once and never again at my local Chinese supermarket. Came across this box of milk ice cream that looked vaguely promising, but when I opened it I found four smaller boxes, each with a block of ice cream! Definitely not a replacement for my White Rabbit treasure, but definitely an interesting find nonetheless.
Okay this was so ridiculously good! The bread was caramelised with a bit of crunchy sugar, and the whipped cream had some solid heft to it, so amazing! In spite of the fruit though, definitely would not call this a healthy snack.
Mango with sticky rice! Someone gave my mum some very unsatisfying durian sticky rice, so she had to make some proper sticky rice on her own, which I definitely profited from.
I’ve been dying to try Their There for ages, and can I just say, their white rabbit mochi doughnut is now officially my favourite doughnut in town. Also how cute is their branding!
This is one of my favourite pots! Look at that fantastic little face… so of course I had to put my spider plant in this charming dude, he really rocks that hair! It’s also genuinely a very low maintenance plant, doesn’t need too much sunlight, doesn’t get all dramatic if it’s a little dehydrated… just lots of lovely sproingy leaves everywhere!
I made my own ikura! Look at how fantastically jewel-like these fish eggs are! In this stunning handmade bowl! It took me three freaking hours to skin the egg sacs, but in the end it was totally worth it. Would 100% do this again if anyone has fresh salmon roe to spare.
One of my dad’s customers gave him a pair of tomato plants that somehow found their way into my hands and they’ve grown so tall that they’re flopping all over the place now. Got some advice that if I’m keeping them indoors I should actually keep them under 2 feet tall, plus this might help force fruit, so. We’ll see! Hopefully I haven’t just completely killed them off entirely…
