It's Mooncake Festival again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There's really only ONE #Mooncake I love,
#RAFFLESHOTEL #CHAMPAGNETRUFFLE & GANACHE #SNOWSKINMOONCAKE
This is my holy grail Mooncake because prior to discovering this I don't like them at all, that's.. 24 / 25 years of my life?
I never liked the paste inside, ew! The only thing I did enjoy was just the baked skin & salted egg yolk but that did not justify eating an entire mooncake. 😂
Look at those babies 😍
I'll definitely buy these for people, cos they're the only ones I approve, and I only buy things I approve. 😁
The snow skin is so fragrant! Ikr how can snow skin have any smell in the first place!? But I swear as long as these boxes are within radar, you can sniff them!!! It's a very 香 light floral / fruity blend that fills up your bag, your fridge, everywhere! When it hits my nose its like *DING* 😃 MOONCAKE. 🚨🚨🚨
The snow skin is ridiculously soft, like.. It can still be remoulded kind of soft, such an orgasm just savouring it 😋😇 Died & went to food heaven.
& then.. Of all things I really hate.. I. Stay. Away. From. Lotus. Paste. Even like bao, or é birthday pink bao.. I really like bao skin, but not lotus paste. This is é ONLY paste I not only eat but LOVE. In fact, tbh, I love é paste more than é ganache, which says A LOT. It's light & creamy & not too niam / sweet. With é snow skin, PERFECTION. 👌🏻👍🏻
The white chocolate champagne ganache is like a sweet ending to this mouthwatering little parcel of joy.
You can really taste the champagne.
But I'm way impressed with the Mooncake itself.
I. Swear. By. This. 💞💞💞💞💞
Old school bus ticket cos I forgotten my ezlink.
Even é paper turned yellow 😂
Rmb how we used to insert a flimsy thin bus card, punch é correct fare, & é machine will spit our card & tix out!!!
& I used to scratch out all é designs on the card bcos it's so ugly!!!
& our buses used to be non-air-conditioned. Between é person sitting in front of & behind you, you got to share that pathetic sliding window panel that refuses to slide / won't budge. É wind that constantly gets hair in your face!!
The uuss with orange pineapple juice.
Do vendors add sugar syrup in our juices? 🤔
How to make the perfect hardboiled egg.
I'm not a Chef & I'm not a pro but I think I got this! 💪🏻
(See what I did there? 😂 Pun intended.)
1. Place a room temperature egg in a pot, fill w water, enough such that only the top of é egg is peeking through / breaking é water surface.
2. Then bring both é water & egg to a boil. When it starts boiling, COUNTDOWN 5 mins no more or less.
TIP: Roll é egg around é boiling water. The logic is simple, even though it did not occur to me earlier. I roll it rough around é parameter of é pot.. So that my yolk will not settle to é side. It will stay nicely in é middle. You will thank me later.
3. 5 mins of boiling later, immediately remove with a spoon & run under running water. With é water running, trust me, it's not too hot to.. Peel immediately.
& if you've swirled é egg sufficiently earlier, peeling is easy. I used to break my yolk all é time because é sides are too soft & it'll give way. But if it's in é middle.. Our runny yolk is protected.
Peeling immediately also stops é cooking. The end result should be an extremely semi-cooked hardboiled, runny yolk in é middle.
Be gentle here! Don't knock too hard against a surface to crack the shell as well, everything inside will crumble. Gently gently..
It will wobble like jello in your hands! 😍😋💕
& I could take é top off & dip my veg in the golden molten yolk, even if I've left it in the fridge overnight. 👍🏻
Peanut Butter Belgium Chocolate Granola & Banana, Yoghurt Parfait. With Honey & Dried Berries Muesli.
Fancy. I just mixed 1.5 tablespoon of peanut butter with my granola lah 😂 cos peanut butter & banana is love. 💕
With the girls for a durian feast incentive.
I. HAD. TOO. MANY. DURIANS.
I think I ate more than my last 5 or 10 years put together 😱
But the Mao Shan Wang was so creamy & SHIOK! I love the bitter ones. I'm not a huge durian fan, I usually stop at 1 or 2.. But it was like durian galore there! 😱💕
All the durians we destroyed. 💥
The vendor already cleared like 3 batches of husks.
