I went back earlier this year for my sister's graduation and had a bit of a celebration with that and Mum's belated birthday.
Surprised her with a durian cake from Goodwood Park Hotel. The last weeks of their Durian Festival which is always so good and should not be missed if you live in Singapore.
Their durian creations are amazing and so true to the tastes.
Sis got me my favourite durian puffs, made entirely of the just durian pulp and no cream. The whole thing is bigger than my mouth wide open but the best feeling is to shove it in and sit in silence just chomping it all together. Amazing!
GOODWOOD PARK HOTEL definitely does the best durian creations.
We threw a small dessert party for my sister's graduation and Clara brought us cookies from Cookies for Sid, a new bakery specialising in all kinds of cookie creations. I tried several flavours and found them quite alright, nothing to shout about. In fact, not the best cookies I had either. Probably won't recommend it so highly... but I suppose it does feel homebaked and that's all you want sometimes.
Laurent Bernard Chocolate Cake for sis because well the girl loves chocolate. It was moist and the right touch of chocolatey. For a non-chocolate loving person like me to like it alot, I think it hits alot of the right spots. Worth checking out!
Managed to squeeze in tea-time with Jol but felt bad because I ended up being gone most of the time at my other appointment in the same building. Cedele does one of the better carrot cakes so it was a pleasure. I definitely have a guilty indulgence in Coffee Bean's carrot cake though!
Managed to bring back macarons from TWG Tea Saloon in the airport to Perth. I really always admire the tea infusion flavour they do and macarons are great for my sweet tooth.
Love the kaya and vanilla bourbon creation! SO GOOD.
