Gartien 小田佳园 | Pineapple Cake Mid Autumn Edition

Gartien 小田佳园 launches their Mid Autumn edition of Pineapple Cakes with a very attractive packaging. I have got my hands on the delicious box of pineapple cakes last week and managed to finish them in two days. No, not by myself but I’ve been sharing them with my colleagues here in Singapore.

Its always a norm in the Chinese culture to send gifts, be it for family or for friends for Mid Autumn. Looks like this time around, we do have an alternative of having Pineapple Cakes as gifts with such presentable packaging. photo 20140730_082529_zps2859722b.jpg photo 20140730_083302_zps1be919de.jpg photo 20140730_083516_zps3e8e1221.jpg

The pineapples are sourced from a local plantation nearby and they are painstakingly hand-cut into cubes, very time-consuming but is necessary to retain its distinctive flavour and texture. they are then cooked for 12 hours until luscious golden brown. The shortbread pastry made from pure butter will be enveloping generous amount of pineapple filling and baked to PERFECTION. Rest assured that they contain absolutely NO preservative and NO artificial flavouring.

[SINGAPORE] Udders Ice Cream

Cravings can sometimes turn viral. Just like how ice cream makes waffles to perfection. Udders serves various flavours which makes me wanting to try every flavour I saw. A bit of every but its just too much :( I can only opt to try them some other time.

Sweet tooth easing for desserts. I am always a dessert person. The ice cream served is creamy and its something which you do not need a reason for consuming ;P

Wondering what Printit is all about? Well, it helped me to frame my backpacking journeys into postcards. Oh-so-cool, can?! All thanks to Printit for the brilliant idea of having those precious money-can’t-buy moments printed on postcards. Its done so nicely that I decided to use them to decorate my wall.

Well, hey! I will be giving out RM5 vouchers to 10 lucky readers. Just like the FB Page and I will PM you rightaway ;)

Randomly, a reader of mine was requesting for one of the postcard printed . which I have pasted on my wall to be sent to him. LOL!

Archipelago Brewery is currently producing four permanent beers mainly Belgian Wit, Summer Ale, Bohemian Lager and Irish Ale, as well as occasional limited edition brews. photo 20140710_202947_zps47e035bd.jpg

The overwhelming crowd brings down the roof as there were games and free flow of beer all night. photo 20140710_202804_zps294c04d8.jpg

A night of bringing the party-goers back to their younger days! photo 20140710_202918_zps87e8c661.jpg photo 20140710_202957_zps19d89a2b.jpg photo 20140710_203012_zps8e33b6aa.jpg
