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 🍡 and indulgent sweets to feed the soul in the middle of a work day. 🏠❀️

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 ( Γ  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. πŸ΅πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š Can't wait to try the Matcha Azuki Roll Cake next!!! πŸ˜‹πŸ°πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

Having tried THE Burnt Basque Cheesecake from @thekinscafe previously, I was delighted to find an even yummier version by @keongsaikbakery 😍😍😍😍

Grappling with an inner debate the entire morning of which cake to have, my heart leapt with happiness when I saw this last slice of gorgeous "Two-Faced" cake sitting pretty in the chiller.

I tried the original cheesecake layer first, and the very slight bittersweet charred flavour of the crust melded perfectly in harmony with that oozing creamy cheese centre.😍 Super plus points for the actual oozing centre, rather than the more solid rendition I had at the Kins. πŸ˜…

The Uji Matcha layer was equally as delightful. Though a tad sweet, the fragrance of Uji Matcha still shone through the creamy flavours. I dare say this is THE BEST cheesecake I've had in Singapore thus far!!! 😍❀️❀️❀️

Cantonese desserts in cosy Katong 😍 We were blown away with the fried milk wanton πŸ₯› and tangyuans🍑, all for a super affordable price! (In the range of around $3-$5)✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻 Looks like @jinyumantangdessert is gonna be our new go-to dessert place since we already have the menu for our next trip planned out!!! 😁❀️❀️❀️

And all I can think about in this sweltering heat, is this creamy heaven from @bopgelato 😍🍦🌈

The Jewel outlet didn't carry my fave pandan flavour, but the smooth and rich Pistachio and Sea Salt Houjicha more than made up for it! Loved the umami of savoury sea salt meshed with the fragrance of roasted Houjicha, defo a keeper!

Last day for @starbuckssg 1-for-1 deal! ✌🏻✌🏻❀️❀️❀️ So glad I finally managed to try this drink, it was a much needed jolt of energy after finally making it to Thursday!

I had mine with soy milk (they didn't have almond milk πŸ€”) and less sweet without whipped cream, and loved the strong coffee flavour amplified by the bittersweet popping coffee spheres. It definitely wasn't the overly sweet caramel drink I was expecting, but instead turned out to be one for coffee lovers who enjoy the caffeine kick. πŸ˜β€οΈβ˜• Will definitely be having this drink again, I hope they have the coffee spheres on the permanent menu soon!!!

Ahhhh Mondays... When the ice cream force is strong, and you cave in to the magic of @mcdsg Purple Sweet Potato Waffle Soft Serve πŸ˜πŸ πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
.
Not sure if it's because I've reduced my sugar intake drastically in recent months, but I was taken aback by how sweet this flavour was! πŸ™€ It was definitely flavourful, but I doubt I'll be having another for the sake of my diet. πŸ˜…

Mid-week treats with @muyoosg, made even better with a 1-for-1 deal using #burpplebeyond ✌🏻✌🏻❀️❀️

For those who love an intense cheesy foam, πŸ­πŸ§€THIS is the place for you. Definitely stronger than LiHo's. However, as much of a cheese lover I am, I found the sharp cheesy taste too overpowering, and could barely taste the cocoa. Would have preferred a more subtle yet savoury taste to complement the beverages. The very instagrammable rainbow cup holders were pretty, but so not very environmentally friendly πŸ˜…πŸŒ

I doubt I'll purchase this item without a 1-for-1 promo... I'd rather have KOI, LiHo and R&B anytime! πŸ˜›

@tsujirihei_honten is finally back in Singapore!!! πŸ˜πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

So happy that I finally got to try the Mixed Soft Serve ($7.00) this time around, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually preferred the fragrant Houjicha over the strong Matcha one that I had previously...

But having the best of both worlds? It was the best decision ever. 🍡 The subtly sweet cone was a nice complement to the depth of flavours, and it is still one of the best tea based ice creams IMO. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’š Also bought the Strawberry Matcha Daifuku πŸ“πŸ΅ ($11.00) to try, am so excited!!! πŸ˜πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“

Friday Happiness comes in bubblegum colours!!! 😍🍭☁️

Missed out on trying @aquas_au when I was in Sydney a few years back, so I was really excited when they brought @aquas.sg to Singapore!!! πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬β€οΈ Glad that I waited it out since their opening, there was no queue during lunch time! 🀭

The Lychee Rose 🌹 X Sea Salt 🌊 ($5.40) is soooo pretty in bubblegum pink and blue, and the flavours definitely do not disappoint! Loved that the lychee wasn't overpoweringly sweet and matched well with the rose flavour. The signature sea salt flavour 🌊🍼could have been saltier (but I do love salty thingsπŸ˜‹), but overall I really enjoyed this limited edition combo! (Available until 15 Jan 2019)
.
Also pleasantly surprised that the toasted marshmallow (add-on topping at 80 cents each) was done to perfection, and came on a Pocky stick instead of the wooden/plastic stick that I was expecting. 😝 Bonus points for friendly staff! 😁🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭

Hand-made at the week-old @dopadopa.sg, you can tell that every single scoop is made with love! πŸ˜πŸ’“ @leonard.ong9 trained with an Italian chef and makes a batch of these yummy treats daily, so you can be sure every single scoop is fresh!

Was disappointed that the Pistachio flavour was sold out, but dark chocolate lovers, REJOICE in their yummy rendition which isn't too sweet!!! πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ«πŸ«πŸ« The GF can't stop raving about the banana flavour too! 🍌

I'll be back again, hopefully this time for the pistachio!

For cheese lovers πŸ­πŸ§€, why not indulge in the savoury and milky goodness of @tokyomilkcheesesg ? 😍

Some may find the cheese a little too overwhelming, but I would have loved for the cheese to be even stronger!!! For those who prefer something lighter, perhaps the twist flavour would be a better choice.

But... CHEESE!!! πŸ§€πŸ§€πŸ§€ The melding of rich, savoury and sweet flavours were a delight to our tastebuds. 😍😍😍 A pity the cheese cone was sold out though, I really wanted to try that!

Midweek Berries! πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“

This combination of blended fruit tea (with real strawberry chunks!) goes soooo well with the creamy and slightly savoury cheese foam! πŸ˜πŸ§€πŸ“

I love that the drinks by @heeteasg aren’t overly sweet or syrupy, but at $6.90 per cuppa, this is slightly on the higher end scale. Yummy as an occasional treat though! πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸŒˆπŸ’•πŸ’•
