My fav MOONCAKE πŸ’ž x A perfect hardboiled egg x Durian GALORE πŸ’ž

Wednesday

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. πŸ˜‚

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* πŸ˜ƒ MOONCAKE. 🚨🚨🚨

The snow skin is ridiculously soft, like.. It can still be remoulded kind of soft, such an orgasm just savouring it πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‡ Died & went to food heaven.

& then.. Of all things I really hate.. I. Stay. Away. From. Lotus. Paste. Even like bao, or Γ© birthday pink bao.. I really like bao skin, but not lotus paste. This is Γ© ONLY paste I not only eat but LOVE. In fact, tbh, I love Γ© paste more than Γ© ganache, which says A LOT. It's light & creamy & not too niam / sweet. With Γ© snow skin, PERFECTION. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

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. πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž

Old school bus ticket cos I forgotten my ezlink.

Even Γ© paper turned yellow πŸ˜‚

Rmb how we used to insert a flimsy thin bus card, punch Γ© correct fare, & Γ© machine will spit our card & tix out!!!

& I used to scratch out all Γ© designs on the card bcos it's so ugly!!!

& our buses used to be non-air-conditioned. Between Γ© person sitting in front of & behind you, you got to share that pathetic sliding window panel that refuses to slide / won't budge. Γ‰ wind that constantly gets hair in your face!!

Ah, nostalgia.

The uuss with orange pineapple juice.

Do vendors add sugar syrup in our juices? πŸ€”

How to make the perfect hardboiled egg.

I'm not a Chef & I'm not a pro but I think I got this! πŸ’ͺ🏻

EGGCITED!!!!! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸ™†πŸ»πŸ™†πŸ»

(See what I did there? πŸ˜‚ Pun intended.)

1. Place a room temperature egg in a pot, fill w water, enough such that only the top of Γ© egg is peeking through / breaking Γ© water surface.

2. Then bring both Γ© water & egg to a boil. When it starts boiling, COUNTDOWN 5 mins no more or less.

TIP: Roll Γ© egg around Γ© boiling water. The logic is simple, even though it did not occur to me earlier. I roll it rough around Γ© parameter of Γ© pot.. So that my yolk will not settle to Γ© side. It will stay nicely in Γ© middle. You will thank me later.

3. 5 mins of boiling later, immediately remove with a spoon & run under running water. With Γ© water running, trust me, it's not too hot to.. Peel immediately.

& if you've swirled Γ© egg sufficiently earlier, peeling is easy. I used to break my yolk all Γ© time because Γ© sides are too soft & it'll give way. But if it's in Γ© middle.. Our runny yolk is protected.

Peeling immediately also stops Γ© cooking. The end result should be an extremely semi-cooked hardboiled, runny yolk in Γ© 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! πŸ˜πŸ˜‹πŸ’•

& I could take Γ© top off & dip my veg in the golden molten yolk, even if I've left it in the fridge overnight. πŸ‘πŸ»

Durian Feast!

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! πŸ˜±πŸ’•

All the durians we destroyed. πŸ’₯

The vendor already cleared like 3 batches of husks.
