How could any holiday go without cookies? ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿช๐Ÿช๐Ÿช I had mine this year in the form of a @shakeshack ๐˜พ๐™๐™ง๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ข๐™–๐™จ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ค๐™ ๐™ž๐™š ๐™ƒ๐™ค๐™ก๐™ž๐™™๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™Ž๐™๐™–๐™ ๐™š ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒˆ ($7.80), essentially an elevated Vanilla Shake loaded with sugar cookies and Peppermint flakes. โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’šโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ’š This was a huge sugar bomb, and would have been extremely satisfying even when shared among 2 pax. I had it all to myself though! ๐Ÿคฃ (Cos'... Holidays. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜)

We also tried the ๐™Ž๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™–๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™ง๐™š-๐™š๐™ญ๐™˜๐™ก๐™ช๐™จ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ๐™‹๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™–๐™ฃ ๐™Ž๐™๐™–๐™ ๐™š ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿƒ ($7.80), which was extremely flavourful with generous coconut shavings and fragrant ๐‘ฎ๐’–๐’๐’‚ ๐‘ด๐’†๐’๐’‚๐’Œ๐’‚.

Having seen this very hyped up ๐‘ด๐’‚๐’•๐’„๐’‰๐’‚ ๐‘ฉ๐’–๐’ by @donq_depuis1905 all over social media for quite some time now, I finally decided to get one after passing by the bakery, and THERE WAS NOBODY waiting in line in the separate queue for the ๐‘ด๐’‚๐’•๐’„๐’‰๐’‚ ๐‘ฉ๐’–๐’!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Distributed out in individually packed plastic bags by a smiling Japanese Baker, I happily took one and went to queue 30min in the main queue for payment. ๐Ÿ˜… Yes, I queued only for one bun LOL.

Was it worth it??? A DEFINITE YES, if you've never tried it before, and if there isn't a long queue! I microwaved it for 30s on medium heat (too long apparently haha), and the generous amount of ๐‘ด๐’‚๐’•๐’„๐’‰๐’‚ ๐‘ณ๐’‚๐’—๐’‚ automatically flowed out into that beautiful pool of green. ๐˜–๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ด.๐Ÿ˜ But it was such a beautiful sight, especially for a Matcha Addict like myself! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต The bun was surprisingly soft and fluffy even though it was kept in the fridge overnight before heating it up, and paired with just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate, I enjoyed soaking up every last bit of that delicious pool of nutty and slightly earthy goodness. Extremely messy to say the least, but totally worth the unglam scenario of me stuffing my face hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜†

Midweek calls for a dose of ice cream to get through the rest of the working week! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿญ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿญ We chose @justbecausecreamery Baileys ๐Ÿฅƒ and Cookies & Cream ๐Ÿช๐Ÿฅ› atop a super fluffehhh Waffle (Waffle at $6.00/pc), and while the ice cream wasn't mind blowingly creamy nor packed with a strong flavour punch, we thoroughly enjoyed how light and crispy the Waffles were! Also liked how they plated the items with just the right amount of drizzled honey and berries to add to that instagrammable feel, and add a dose of tangy flavours. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฏ

In fact, we'd return just for the Waffles alone, and that says a lot cos I reallyyyy love my ice cream and Waffles! ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

All decked out in ๐‘ท๐’Š๐’๐’Œ ๐Ÿ’•, the aptly named ๐‘ด๐’Š๐’๐’๐’†๐’๐’Š๐’‚๐’ ๐‘บ๐’•๐’“๐’‚๐’˜๐’ƒ๐’†๐’“๐’“๐’š well delivered on its beautifully executed presentation, satisfying the hearts of many seeking this limited edition @flippers.singapore ๐‘บ๐’•๐’“๐’‚๐’˜๐’ƒ๐’†๐’“๐’“๐’š ๐‘ท๐’‚๐’๐’„๐’‚๐’Œ๐’†. ๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“

Although this was probably a subtle allude to the ่‰่Ž“ๆ— (aka Strawberry Generation)๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคญ, everything in this dish was the exact opposite. Deliciously adorned with a fresh Strawberry sitting atop a rich dressing of pastel pink ๐‘บ๐’•๐’“๐’‚๐’˜๐’ƒ๐’†๐’“๐’“๐’š ๐‘ช๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’Ž, that light pancake soufflรฉ was further enhanced with the perfect amount of lightly sweetened strawberries and cream sandwiched in between the layers. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅ›

Japanese Soufflรฉ Pancakes ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต are my weak spot, and @flippers.jp has definitely done it right! Not overwhelmed with a strong eggy flavour, the whites were beaten to perfection, resulting in a light-as-air texture which melted in the mouth. I easily finished the entire plate on my own, and really enjoyed every mouthful! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿฅž Be prepared to queue without a reservation though, this place is super popular and be expected to queue for at least an hour during peak hours! Totally worth it though!!!

Happy Halloween !!! Showcasing the special seasonal flavour by @thedailyscoopsg ... ๐Ÿฆ‡๐˜ฝ๐˜ผ๐™ ๐™Ž๐™Š๐™๐™‹๐Ÿฆ‡! Isn't it so cute paired with the eyeballs??? ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘€Comprising of Charcoal Chocolate and Passionfruit Curd, it wasn't overly sweet, and the light Passionfruit flavours were refreshing paired with my fave ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐ŸŒด ice cream on waffles.
Unfortunately, I can't say that I like the waffles here. For some reason, they exhibited a mild bitter aftertaste, which I suspect could be due to excessive baking powder/soda added to the batter. Also, it had a slightly powdery texture, and could not compare to the fluffy, crispy waffles that I so love at other ice cream establishments. ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ’” Will skip the waffles next time, and have my ice creams on the chocolate cones instead! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿซ

It's been several years since I first sunk my teeth into that light, pillowy @richandgoodcakeshop Kaya Roll Cake ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฐ, and I clearly remember that rush of joy as the comforting creaminess of Kaya ๐Ÿƒ and Coconut๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฅฅ awakened my tastebuds.

Fast forward to 2020, where they have now expanded, and I finally got my hands on some of these old school roll cakes in a long while (mostly due to the OOS situation at their various outlets). ๐Ÿ˜…

Unfortunately, the Kaya roll wasn't outstandingly delicious as I remembered ๐Ÿ™Š, and definitely wasn't of the same standard from years ago when I once proudly proclaimed, "๐™๐™ž๐™˜๐™ & ๐™‚๐™ค๐™ค๐™™ ๐™†๐™–๐™ฎ๐™– ๐™๐™ค๐™ก๐™ก๐™จ ๐™–๐™ง๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™€๐™Ž๐™ ๐™„'๐™ซ๐™š ๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง ๐™๐™–๐™™!!!๐Ÿ˜" I mean, they were delicious. But they had somehow lost that signature light texture and comforting flavours that I had once fallen in love with...I suspect that the ratio of Kaya custard has decreased in recent years... Or was it my tastebuds that have changed? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the durian roll cake more this time, and even though the amount of durian pulp isn't exactly generous, it made a wonderful tea-time snack washed down with a cup of tea. ๐Ÿต Would I eat these cakes again? ๐™”๐™€๐™Ž!!!๐Ÿ˜‹ But I definitely wouldn't make my way down specially to queue for them... ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Popping by VivoCity on a whim, I was lucky enough to snag a set of @gram_pancakes_singapore Premium Pancakes ๐Ÿฅžwithout queuing, yayyyyy! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

Deliciously thick and eggy, I enjoyed the satisfying textures lightly flavoured with cream๐Ÿฅ›, maple syrup ๐Ÿฏand butter. Unfortunately, the amount of condiments provided was kinda meagre and didn't really do much for any flavour boost. ๐Ÿ˜…

Compared to other Japanese pancakes like @rizlabosg and @letao_official , the pancakes were more dense and didn't jiggle as much as regular light and airy souffle pancakes. So as much as the Gram Premium Pancakes tasted nice (definitely not mind blowing), I don't think it's worth the special trip down to try this "Limited Edition" item... I'm happy with just those adorable mini pancakes for takeaway! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’— Perhaps, I'll pop by to try the Matcha and Tiramisu pancakes... Those look super yums!!!

One of the things I love about the #workfromhome situation, is the freedom to take some time out and rejuvenate with a quiet cuppa tea ๐Ÿต and indulgent sweets to feed the soul in the middle of a work day. ๐Ÿ โค๏ธ

I especially enjoyed this Matcha Choux Puff by @matchayasg which was a bite of zen in every rich burst of Matcha goodness. Encased in a soft choux shell with just the right balance for hard-core Matcha lovers, I am truly thankful that they went out of their way to deliver these bites of love even on a Public Holiday. Although I personally prefer my choux puffs slightly crispy with a sweet tinge ( ร  la @beardpapasg), I had no complains about this softer and crumbly version which didn't overpower the star of this dessert: The Matcha Tea Filling. ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š Can't wait to try the Matcha Azuki Roll Cake next!!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š
