These few days I have been very busy, going to work, out and not really resting much. haha. its funny how it always seem that i don't have time to cook or bake! argh! i want! haha. shall try my best to plan time for it. 10 more days till my japan trip, it seems so far, yet time passes just as fast or faster especially when you have something on everyday. haha.
Going english high tea tomorrow with my uncle, I have never been before, so will be looking forward in sipping my tea, and enjoying cakes.
Ah.. cakes again. they are lovely, but recently i have eaten so many many. going to be fat le.. >.<
and about the many cakes i ate just now, my stomach hurting.. haha. should not be so greedy next time.
hehe. today i had my birthday cake, its a very special one cause its made out of many different kind of cakes. and they are all from Cedele. hehe. i had Blueberry Hazelnut Cheese Cake, Carrot Walnut Cake, Strawberry Balsamic, Chocolate Banana Espresso, The Devil's Chocolate very fudge cake, Chocolate Truffle Cake.
let me give a short summary for each.. hehe.
Blueberry Hazelnut Cheese Cake
Smooth cheese cake, with chucks of blueberry and hazelnut topping. This cake has a light cheesey taste, and it blends well with the blueberry.
Carrot Walnut Cake
This cake live up to its name as Cedele's best seller. The cake is refreshing, moist and have a slight cinnamon taste with big chucks of walnut. My sister, my dad and I love it also.
Strawberry Balsamic Cake
There is cheese on the middle and side part of the cake. The side is layered with pistachio cream cheese. The top part is layered with strawberry jam, the cake has a new, light, moist taste which let one have a nice experience. another one of my sister and mine favorite.
Chocolate Banana Espresso
Two moist layer of chocolate sponge cake, with big chucks of banana and espresso cream in it. Top with a thick layer of chocolate. Chocolate plus banana will never go wrong! haha. My dad love it, and even showed his kidish side (wanting to have more even though he cant really eat alot of sweet stuff). haha.
The Devil's Chocolate very fudge cake
Two layer of chocolate sponge cake plus thick chocolate spread on the top, side and middle. Although it seems very chocolate, it gave a surprising light chocolate taste.. hehe. but i guess i ate too much cheese cake, so could not appreciate it much.
Chocolate Truffle Cake
Thick chocolate, with a small slice of cake at the bottom. A must try to all the chocolate lovers! Though it seems very rich, but this cake will not be very over powering (ni4).
Overall, we were all very delighted with this birthday cake. hehe. especially my dad and my sis. my dad kept smiling all the way. haha.
At first the cake was all brought at full price. But luckily when we were waiting for the cakes to be packed, I discovered that Suntec Cedele had a promotion, 2nd cake for 50% off! so i asked the cashier about it, and initially he said it was over, but i guessed he felt guilty so in the end he helped us change it. so good right. haha. so it was cheaper and from 5 cakes, we decided to get 6! haha.
Took alot of photos and videos for my birthday celebration. guess this year, my dad spent alot of cash on my birthday. hehe. but i love every bit of it. =)

=) the day have finally arrive. i'm 19th! haha. went out with pris today, tried the carrot walnut cake at cedele at wheelock place. nice le! hehe..
"moist carrot cake is finished with cream cheese frosting and generous amount of California walnuts. "
the prices of cake increase le, increase by $1 to $1.50. and pris told me the slice was smaller compared to raffles there. but its okey i guess.. its really their best seller le. cause when we got into the place, it was a full cake, but when we left, only left 4 slices like that! so fast, another reason could be because the place was full house bah.
went Canele to try their macarons, quite expensive le. one piece like $2.50 i think. we tried the lemon and rose de, it was a level lower then bakerzin's Foret Noir (Black forest) macarons. I still remembered the first time when i tried my first macaron with pris, it was that exact piece. Light, crispy, abit sweet, and clean finish ( like a very good wine.. haha) after trying that i fell in love with it. i can eat it over and over again. hehe. one was for $1.50
the second i brought macarons, it was at bakerzin again, for my dad's birthday. but this time, they did not have Foret Noir, so i got chocolate, coffee, almond. It was much thicker, and sweeter then the first one. abit too much, and my family said too sweet for them. abit of a let down.. >.<
so this is my third time! and i heard canele ones are the best. haha. we got orange, lemon, rose, violet (i think), 5 flavours. they were like my second experience, but was quite thick also. abit sad, considering people say its the best. so we went bakerzin to try the Forst Noir again. haha! but they dun have! so we tried opera instead. hmmm.. about the same as the canele le. oh well.. Forst Noir is simple the one and only best one. rain the whole whole day le! travelling was difficult, but i very long never go out with pris le.. enjoyed it.. hehe..
at nite, me and my family went long beach to eat dinner. we had clams, chilli crab, fried buns, sambal kangkong, oats prawns, bee hoon (got sauce de, with clams and mushrooms), and lastly orh nee! it actually was a set meal, but the nice lady allowed us to change the vegetable and the desert to sambal kangkong and orh nee. the clams was not bad le! the life one, was quite big in size. but when they cook it, it shrink hehe, there's bee hoon with it. it was not bad le! next came the oats prawn and sambal kangkong. the oats prawn was fresh, as the head could easier come off. but i find it quite oily le. then sambal kangkong was okey only.. next came the crab and the fried buns. the crab was big! haha. i ate the pincel! =) it was sweet and very nice! alot of meat.. haha! and fresh also i think. but i prefer my dad's chilli crab sauce, cause got add tomato sauce (sweeter) and got alot of eggs in it.. hehe. the fried buns were nice too! together with the sauce. next came the bee hoon, it tasted very much like hor fun, nice! haha. but i cant finish, cause full le. my sis help me finish. last was the orh nee.not bad not bad! better then alot of others le. but the bedok north one still the nicest, very yammy le.. haha. overall, we were very satisfied le. my dad even commented we should do this every now and then.. haha. the meal cost clost to $200 le, but we got vip (10% off) and a $10 oversea free calling card.
went parkway later to find cedele and buy my cake, even though the website said there is one branch at parkway, but sadly they don't have le. it's okey, saturday my dad bringing me to buy it. hehe! going to pick another nice cake le. looking forward to it!
this year's birthday was very nice le! loved it. got one more next wed le.. haha..
but i just hope that it will not rain on my birthday again. =)

its over! my first sem of the university. things to reflect: should do consistent work. haha. after the exams, i was quite shocked bah. i did not feel happy about it, maybe i was not happy with my last paper bah. the more you hope for it, the lower you will fall. maybe that's what happening to me bah, sadly. anyway, its over for now. i shall do my shopping, watch anime, cooking, etc. i shall stop thinking about it le. =)
i think its best if i don't hear my family stuff. somehow i like being alone.

about 24 hours till freedom! haha. i'm having mix feelings now. Partly because i haven completed my first revision yet. =/ and partly because i can't believe 3 weeks of hardwork is going to be finally over! it was like yesterday when i saw the calendar that i only had one month before the start of my exams. and now i left one day. haha.. the phrase " time waits for no one " is really apt here. been slacking for the whole morning.. bad headache again.. hmm.. wonder if there is any medicine that can cure these horrible headaches..
oh ya.. my weighting machines is abit spoil (i hope).. during these weeks of studying, even though i have make sure i have proper diet, enough fruits and veg and sleep.. i'm gaining weight! gosh.. i can't believe it.. and when my dad told me that the weighting machines is wrong.. have to add 2kg to it.. i almost faint.. haha.. okey bah.. one good thing is i'm heavier then i thought which is suppose to be good to everyone who knows me, cause they keep saying i'm thin, but to me.. i don't know la.. haha.. especially since last 2 days, my stomach keep feeling hungry.. to avoid gastric flu.. which was what i have thanks to my two days 1pm test.. (i'm not able to have food at proper timing), i ate some comfort food.
anyway.. ITS ONE MORE DAY BEFORE MY EXAMS ARE OVER!!! haha.. =)
loves to be happy!
