I don't know if any of my friends or those close to my age remember but these mini tarts are very similar to those I used to buy at my primary school canteen. I would alway buy the chocolate ones as a sweet treat or dessert if I ever had additional money to spare after my meal (one dollar could go a long way in the past). Filled with either chocolate or fruit jam, the alphabets on top is to mark the flavours. I was so excited to see them at NGT Confectionery and just snatched them up without second thought. Though the texture of these tarts are not how I remembered them to be, the taste reminds me fondly of my childhood.

And on a side note thank you @Burpple for selecting my previous #Hawkerpedia post on NGT Confectionery to be published for the Digital Book!

I believe that as heartlanders, we would have at least one favourite neighbourhood cake shop/ bakery that we frequent. The whole allure of it, I think, is its wide selection, convenience, and low prices. NGT Confectionery [喜樂] at Block 504 Hong Kah Point is certainly my favourite. Back when I was in school, my parents will get breads or cakes from this bakery for my breakfast the next day, like hot dog breads and chiffon cakes. I will always remember the times when they got me birthday cakes with those weird, inedible cartoon figures on it (previous birthdays saw Hello Kitty and Doraemon). There are also other wonderful memories associated with this bakery, for example, my mom would wait for me at my school gate with a warm waffle with chocolate spread, just so I could eat as we walked home together, because she was always afraid that I would be hungry. Of course, we still buy their cakes now, and when Chinese New Year comes around, we make it a point to buy their homemade goodies! #hawkerpedia
