I went down to the Polar Puff & Cakes shop at Clementi Mall to order a 3KG cake for delivery. I was presently served by one of the lady who displayed great initiative. Firstly, I asked for butter cream cake, so she patiently advice me which are the butter cream cakes. The cake is supposed to be round in shape but she took the initiative to find out whether it could be made into a rectangular shaped so that it's easier to cut. I didn't even have to request for this. Specific timing to deliver the cake is also taken into consideration. On top of that, the lady also advice me to use Passion card to enjoy discount. All in all, I did not encounter any hiccups during the ordering of cakes lol

On the actual day itself, the delivery of cakes went on smoothly too despite the rain. It arrived within the stated timing.

The pretty cake with the candles lighted up. The white chocolate curls and pink roses gives the whole cake a very sweet and true to its name looks. The fluffy vanilla sponge cake with buttercream taste excellent. The cream is rich and slightly salty, it's so much better compared to fresh cream cakes.

Christmas theme waiting area

Christmas theme waiting area

 
When I walked passed Manna Story, it did not occurred to me that this is a Korean Cuisine Restaurant. The two snowman at the waiting area, lots of snowflakes pasted on the wall and the restaurant name all gives a very Christmas season feeling that I thought it's a place for desserts or ice-creams. tongue

Even the menu and the tables and chairs are of the same colour schemes. The light blue and white theme makes me feels comfortable and at home. Not only that, this restaurant also provides an excellent view of the Olympic-size ice skating rink downstairs.

Cute authentic can drinks from Korea! My can of Shikhye is a traditional Korean rice beverage and has a mild sweetness to it. It actually feels like drinking syrup water. There's also some grains of rice inside that one can bite.

Wow, these are the side dishes that were served! I think I can get full just by eating the side dishes alone. The best thing about the side dishes in Manna Story is that they are all refillable once. So if I particularly like the Kimchi, I can take a big servings from the refill area myself.

The main dish arrived. I ordered Bimbimbap pork. I always like how the Korean mix rice with a lots of toppings. There's meat, vegetables and egg all in a bowl so it's really a healthy dish. Although some of the toppings can also be found in the side dishes. I still enjoy my meal very much.

Lastly is our Topokki for snacks. It taste starchy with some braised sauce. I don't really like it that much as it takes a while to chew it.

Colourful bite size rock candies Smile Jul 29, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Australian / New Zealand

 
When I was at JCube the other day, I joined in the big crowd as a curious bystander as I watched how the skilled confectioner hand made tons and tons of Sticky candies on the spot. It's really a fascinating process especially when the end products are tons and tons of beautiful candies with intricate designs.

 
I also love the graffiti on the walls that makes the whole place so lively and colorful. After standing a while, I can't help but also buy a bottle for myself.

 
Packed in a simple glass bottles, it's a joy to have it. Every pieces of candies inside is of different flavors and have different designs on it. I like that each time I pick one candy, it would be a surprise as I didn't know what flavor I have picked out from the bottle. Though it's called sticky, but fear not cause this sweet doesn't stick to your teeth and it's also not too sweet. The best gift for special occasions too as they are able to customized the wordings and pictures on the sweets.

Pontian Wantan Mee Smile Jul 23, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Noodles

 
Pontian Wantan Mee is one dish that I would never missed when I'm at Orchard area and just want to have a light meal instead of eating at a restaurant. Pontian Wantan Mee have earned great reputation and have since opened up many stalls throughout the island. With the portion just nice for me, eating pontian noodle is very enjoyable. Noodle is springy and consumers have the choice to choose what kind of sauce we want. Chili sauce, Tomato sauce or Black sauce. I prefer mine to be black sauce with chili. Tasty but not too salty. They use mostly lean meat for the char siew and so the char siew has a rough texture. The deep fried wantan is crispy and delicious when dipped in the mayonnaise sauce. Love how they also have the soup wantan. Nice. lol

Expansive Ngoh Hiang Bee Hoon OK Jul 09, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court

I must say the presentation of the wide variety of fried snacks really attracted me to order the from here even though I know it would have cost much more expansive as compared to eating at a market. True enough, 4 different dishes and bee hoon cost $6.10. Fried prawn $1.50, Fish Fillet $1.20, Fish Ball $0.40 Taiwan Sausage $1.50 and large bee hoon $1.50.

I like it that the fried snacks are fried on the spot which makes them crispy yet not too oily. However, for the fried prawn, it comes with the prawn shell which I dislike. Yes, although, the whole fried prawn was covered with flour and went to fry, I think the shell should be removed first. The rest are all good. I especially love their chili sauce which is mixed with peanuts I think. The sweet sauce is tasteless.
