Early bday surprise from mom@Home

image

Home is where I catch up on my childhood foodies and sleep. My body had announced to me how tired I had been as I napped from 4pm till 9pm. Mom woke me up for dinner (eat again!) And there came this gorgeous looking mango cake!

This is indeed truly home made (by one of the lady friends in Taiping). You won’t get commercialised cakes with such mango on it. A wonderful early birthday gift from mom!

And it was oishi des! The cake was yoghurt based, hence the texture was mildly dense. Great thing about it was that it wasn’t sweet! And full of mango flavours (the mangoes were really sweet). I was so tempted to have a second slice but darns…I already had a big plateful of dishes for dinner before this came along.

Guess I’m gonna have a mango-filling Saturday tomorrow! Teeheehee.

The cake is made by AG’S. Anyone who is keen to order, can drop me a message.
This cake weighs at 1.5kg, and priced at RM80. Definitely worth paying with the abundance of fruits and quality in taste.

Foodieventura recommended!

Best bakes&coffee!@Jakarta

One of the best coffee beans I had was not from Klang Valley, but all the way from Jakarta! From this famous roaster Common Grounds!
Each pack of beans, distinct in its aroma!
The great thing is that their medium roasted beans are really nicely done! You can tell from the colour of its beans and the whiff of splendid aroma bursting through as you open the pack, specific as whatever was written..floral, caramel, sweetness etc. You name it, you smell it. Amazing!

Nothing beats Paul & Paulina (Seoul) and Tiong Bahru Bakery (Singapore), but here emerges another “Paul” from Jakarta, a branch of a French bakery that opened in 1889, that can contend up to my all-time favourite two.

Not too sweet, and yummylicious with the crunchy almonds and outer layer. Purrrrrfect with Common Ground’s hand filtered coffee in the morning.

The lemon raspberry tart didn’t disappoint either. Filled with zesty, tingy, citrusy flavour at first, then neutralised by the sweetness of the raspberries. Yuuuuuummmmmmmm! That’s the way to go with a nicely brewed cuppa. Teeheehee.
