Mini Salted Caramel Cakes

Ah it's been two weeks since I've written on this space. My dear one week holiday is over, too quickly, as many of my peers would argue. But thankfully, I think I have spent this holiday very well indeed.


Contrary to popular believe, I am not a snaek, and neither am I a mugger. (Do google those two terms if they are unfamiliar.) Possibly no one will believe me, but I actually did not study much this holiday. At least, I did not do any extra studying for the coming promotional exams.


Granted, I did do a little studying, just to make up for all the sleeping and staring into space that I did during my classes during the previous term. Oh, I did a lot of it, I did.

Matcha Sakura Cake


These hyper-extended breaks are not doing me any good. But I can explain. I slept at 8 for two nights in a row this week, so forgive me. ‘Best sleep I’ve had in years’ is an understatement. And it’s on school nights.

Hee Kee Desserts

It's been a while, guys! I've been taking a break... Okay, I'll admit I was due to get back onto the blog on the 7th of August, but kind of overstepped my break my about 2 weeks, thanks to the strenuous, sleep-depriving monster called JC.

I suppose many of you are expecting another recipe? Time for me to apologise, because what I have today is one of my rare food reviews! 


So, I was invited to a tasting session at Hee Kee Hong Kong Desserts 囍記 at Jurong Point shopping centre and I went back there a few more times afterwards, to try out some more of their decadent desserts. Needless to say, the tasting session had charmed me.

In view of possible short attention spans, as I've learnt recently, in some odd lesson or two.. I'll be sharing just some (stretching it at 7) I enjoyed tremendously.

$3.30 per piece, $6 for two

Miso Chocolate Bread (Panasonic Bread Maker & Singapore Blog Awards)

If you came to my place, I’d tell you ‘oh no, don’t take those miso chocolate buns. They’re not good.’

Why would you want them? Don’t waste the calories. Just leave them there. I’ll get rid of them later.


I’ll get rid of them, down my contracting esophagus and into the ever churning abyss that is my stomach. But before that, I’ll pull them apart and feel the soft webs of baked gluten. I’ll see the molten chocolate flowing out the centre, then savour it, slowly, appreciating the backdrop of miso.

Bread Maker Muah Chee (Panasonic Bread Maker & Singapore Blog Awards

Nope, I did not accidentally post something that’s not made in the Panasonic bread maker for the competition.


Believe it or not, this muah chee (just not the peanut portion), was made in the Panasonic bread maker.

Rotiboy Loaf (Panasonic Bread Maker & Singapore Blog Awards!)

Aren't we all such busy people? When one reaches home after the sun sets and leaves before it rises, the possibility of freshly baked bread for breakfast everyday is almost nil. There’s simply no time! I’ll admit, even I have succumbed to the laziness – just look at when my last bread post was *whispers 2013*. I miss awfully the days of secondary school where I actually had the time to make bread for my family regularly.


It’s not unknown that bread can take a lot of time. Cakes take about 2 hours, from start to finish, and about 40 minutes of that time is baking. Cookies take about an hour at the most. Bread, on the other hand, takes about 4-5 hours each time. Granted, about 2 hours is resting time, another half an hour, baking time. But then, who has time for kneading, shaping and all the other processes that bread making requires.

That’s one of the reasons I have not avoided making the nostalgic rotiboy for so long.

Blueberry Macarons & being inspired by CTs

Hi everyone! Before I get to the main post, just a little something :)

I'm one of the finalists for the Singapore Blog Awards! Do support me by voting for me here. You can vote everyday and nope, you don't have to be Singaporean. 

Much love,
Joey

Once in very long while, I’m inspired by something extremely unexpected.  I’ll just go ahead and admit that this is the FIRST time I’ve been inspired to bake anything by an exam.


It’s a rather funny story actually…

Cinnamon Blueberry Ice Cream & impulsive buying

I have to tell everyone a thing or two about impulsive buying. I’m sure most of us have this problem. You know, when you walk into the clothing store and see something on 50%, or maybe 30 or 15, off. You think ‘oh what a great deal’, ‘it’s so cheap’ and buy it without thinking about whether or not you’re going to wear it often.


Or perhaps it’s the pretty notebook in the bookstore. Or a cookbook. Maybe it’s a home appliance you have no need for.

Maybe, just maybe, it’s the four boxes of blueberries you found for ‘BUY 1, GET 3 FREE’ in one supermarket and just below $3 in another.

Matcha White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Scroll down to the bottom for the recipe: Matcha White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies


Of Love, Life and Death

Perhaps the title wasn’t quite appropriate. It should just be Of Living, because living encompasses all of those.
