Foodie Read 2015 and 2016

Mentioned in my post in October, I had signed up for reading challenge in the Foodie Read 2015 late this year. This challenge is organised by hosted by Vicki of I’d Rather Be Reading at the Beach. I signed up for Short-Order Cook which is for 1 to 3 books. Challenge completed as below.

1. Nini Eat First, Talk Later

Although I have shortlist 2 more books but I have yet to complete them this year. I am almost completing one of the books but guess the review can only be done next year.

Next year, I will be up for Pastry Chef (4-8 Books). This time it is organised by Heather from Based on a True Story. As Little One will be entering Primary One (a major milestone for my family), I am not sure whether I could handle with reading many foodie books. Still, I will try my best to do so. :)

Exploring Neighbourhood :Telok Blangah Heights : Bread Story

This is another neighbourhood which I explored while I sent Little One for dance class. I stumbled upon this bakery because I wanted to get some bread for breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised to know that they sell the honeycomb cake! Both the white and brown version. Remembering that I had made white honeycomb cakes for Little One some years ago, so I bought the white version for her. (Just in case, she thought that the brown version looked weird  unfamiliar. ) To my surprise, she remembered it because I had not been making any since 2 years ago. We got to try the brown version a week later. I bought her into the shop to select personally. There wasn't any difference between the white and the brown but I do feel that the brown ones smell nicer! Ha~

They sell, too, some very nostalgic snacks Choi Ma Fa and Pig Ear Biscuit. What surprised me was that although we visited only once every week (it was only our 4th visit), the shop assistant recognized us and she knew we were there for the cake! 

The price is affordable. If you do not want to make honeycomb cake yourself, then head down when you in the vicinity. (There are quite a number of Chinese temples in that area) Shop address: Blk 78B, Telok Blangah Heights, #01-15.

Child Crafts using paper towel rolls

Merry Christmas! 
Sharing today on my blog are crafts my child did. I did not invite her to play or craft. These were made when I was busy with working with chores. She took out pom-poms, sequins, magazines, carft paper, tissue paper, pen, colour pencil and glue. I must say I am amazed and very proud of her works.

Exploring Neighbourhood :Bukit Merah - The Bakery Chef

Christmas is coming soon! I had been traveling with Little One to explore various neighbourhoods. Although we had been to quite a few of them, I could not blog about them until now. That was because I was forced to have a rather long blog break. They were numerous factors, one leading to another, which kept me super busy over this one month and the most serious was ,of course, the laptop (which I kept my precious photo) crashed.

Exploring an old neighbourhood can be quite interesting, especially when you have not been to the neighbourhood for a long time. Then, on your next visit, new development appears. I had been eyeing on this little cafe tucked in a Blk 161 Bukit Merah Central, #01-3711, Singapore, 150161 because of its beautiful cakes. The name is The Bakery Cafe. I would pass by whenever I go to Bukit Merah Public Library.. This cafe is not really new. It started business in November 2013 but it took me almost 2 years before I finally step into it in late Oct this year. So, this review is only based on what we experience that day.
We were the only one dining outside the cafe. It was full house in the cafe.
We ordered a mini rainbow cake set which came with a macaroon of choice, pistachio in this case. The cake is soft and is perfect match with the cream which taste heavenly. Probably one of the best rainbow cake I have tasted. I like the macaroon too. It is not too sweet. The coffee was decent enough too. Verdict: We will be back for the cake! 

There is a review on this cafe by Daniel Food Diary. He also mentioned that there were 2 other cafes in the vicinity. This cafe is the nearest to the library.

You may want to visit their facebook page  or their  website to find out more what they have to offer.
Bon appetite!
