Sweet Treats at WOW! Blogger Party - Kotex New Product Launch

Image
I recently attended an all female - bloggers only event at the posh Heaven's Loft restaurant in Orchard Central. The event was organized by Kotex and OMY for the former's launch of its breakthrough product - Luxe. It's a party definitely filled with mouthwatering sweet treats. An assortment of specialty cakes, fruit tarts, cup cakes, mousse, brownies, ice cream and other finger licking good savoury bites entertained the meandering palate of every guest. It was an afternoon of sugar rush which is just right for the high spirit ambiance at the launch party.
There was a "Design your own Cupcakes" table by Sweetest Moments that really hooked my interest. My daughter and I had a wonderful bonding time in creating our own cute little cupcake versions. Other than the design, there's nothing spectacular to rave about the taste. I was apparently craving for a more gooey, decadent mouthfeel rather than the crumbly, dry texture that it has. However, I would commend the l…

Popular Noodles in Singapore (the must try)

Image
Just like its other asian neighbors, Singapore share the same eating habit for rice and noodles. The local diet is largely comprised of these two major staples with the latter as the most common choice for a meal. From its very affluent culinary pot, noodles definitely stands out as a food category. You normally see it in all forms and variations in the local food centres and Kopitiams. In fact, the range of choices is so diverse that sampling its taste equates to being a cultural attraction. It's typically slurpped and enjoyed piping hot either in soup or stir-fry. Many of these dishes are adaptations or inter-cultural fusions of the multiple ethnic groups who migrated to the country. This gave birth to the Chinese-Singaporean, Indian-Singaporean, Malay-Singaporean, Indo-Singaporean and other mix and matches of multi-racial cuisines. Likewise, by and large, this makes the noodle dishes in this country far from being lifeless and boring. As such, it is a culinary pride. Here are m…

Makansutra Gluttons Bay

I'm beginning to embrace the fact that Singapore is really a "food obsessed" country. So much so that describing its culinary pot as overflowing with great dishes to be had is still a restrained statement. Food here comes from all walks of life (if that can be said). From the unassuming street shops and hawker centers, to the posh and classy five star restaurants established by no less than the creme de la creme of the culinary world, a myriad of taste sensations are waiting to be discovered. While my taste trek to the restaurants of top celebrity chefs at the now esteemed Marina Bay Sands is still yet to happen, I tracked down the unembellished yet genuinely rich food spot in the island-state, Makansutra. I was lucky enough to meet in person its founder at the recently concluded Food Festival 2010. Makansutra claims to celebrate the best of Asian food culture and lifestyle. Judging from what I've seen and experienced from my recent visit, it indeed lives up to what…

It's been a while now since we relocated to a new home and I still haven't completed my culinary tools for the kitchen yet. Day in and day out, my children's cravings for baked goods had been lingering through my mind. They've been urging me real hard to finally get a new mixer and new baking pans so they can be reunited to their favorite home treats. I think the long wait for them is over.

For someone who's used to the abundance of sweet treats back in the Philippines, I can't help but crave for the customary rich and indulgent sweet delights every once in a while. That's why, it's satisfying to discover that Singapore has its own exciting range of baked goods and sweets as well. Among the ones notable for good products are Bakerzin, Bread Talk, Four Leaves and Bengawan Solo. Recently, another new establishment was born to conquer the tastebuds of many sweets afficionados. Let's Sweets, claimed to be the first and the latest dessert buffet restaurant in the island is opening today. It promises to offer a sugar rush experience out of an extensive selection of more than 40 scrumptious desserts.
