Things I’ve eaten #5: Sweet Treats Edition

Salted caramel and mango lime macarons

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.

Mango frozen yoghurt

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!

Roti prata + condensed milk

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.

Milk ice cream

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.

Caramel fruit sandwich

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.

Khao Nieu Ma Muang

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.

White rabbit mochi doughnut

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!

Bits of last week #8

1. Finally got some proper gardening tools! Not entirely sure what the difference between the different pointy bit shapes are, but they definitely made cutting my monstera much easier!

2. I’ve started trying to meditate more regularly in the morning. It’s tough going, but sometimes there are moments when things just feel weirdly calm and peaceful, so all in I’d say it’s good going too.

3. Unearthed my old yarn stash. Lost most of the labels on these, but working on my temperature blanket has me thinking about knitting a bit more again.

4. New old beach that was surprisingly peaceful in spite of the mad crowds.

5. Sometimes things just unexpectedly speak straight to things I’m puzzling over, I just have to be better at listening.

6. Got a tin of condensed milk recently out of a bout of weird nostalgic something or other. Also I’m sort of getting used to this weird construction backdrop now, odd as it may be.

7. I’ve been writing a lot more in the last few weeks, and it’s always a lovely meditative process when I get to refill and swap out my inks.
