This is literally the best way to greet the weekend – a cold, rainy morning while being tucked up in bed.
Suffice to say that I snuggled in pretty much most of the day till I had to get up for lunch at the very least hahhaaha.
TarotaroSG Swiss Rolls
For brunch/lunch, I went ahead to finally try the swiss rolls that I won from a giveaway contest held by a home baker, TarotaroSG!
First round: To try the chilled swiss rolls fresh out of the fridge.
1. I’m surprised that the strawberry is nice? I usually don’t like it. Some might find the taste a little too artificial though.
2. Nutella was a lil meh. Too light for my taste buds. If they have a super rich chocolate one; I’ll definitely aim for it.
3. The Pandan gula melaka is not badOverall, 不错啦. Very soft and light and not very sweet in my opinion 😄
Second Round: To try the frozen swiss rolls which I placed in the freezer as recommended for a different taste
- I actually enjoyed this version better! Especially because I’m not a cream person per se; but due to the rolls being the freezer = the cream in the swiss roll became almost like ice cream hahahaha so I found it very acceptable
It tastes like frozen pound cake with some ice cream 🤣 But okay la, the fluffy and soft sponge feel is gone.
Conclusion: Nice to have two different textures though.
And those curious about my mom’s verdict: “Okay lor, nothing special.” She says hahahha. Not impressed but passable in a nutshell.
Puffs and Peaks
Today I also finally got my hands on the long awaited pre-order I placed from Puffs and Peaks in my impulsive buys for the month – unfortunately, without their signature doughnuts..but thats okay!
Here’s my freshly baked orders (baked in the early morning!) for $15.50.
- 1x Soft Chewy Cookie (Sea Salt Chocolate) – $3.50
- 1x Brookie (Chocolate) – $3.50
- 1x Fudgey Brownie – $4.50
- 1x Banana Loaf Slice – $4.00
You might think it looks little but trust me, its ALOT and can be quite gelat as they are quite rich. Suggested to share / cut into pieces.
I cut both cookies into 8 pieces to slowly savour; the banana loaf into 6 pieces and the brownie into 9 pieces.
Loved them all and my favourite will definitely be that dense chocolatey brownie. You can really taste the freshness/richness and quality of the ingredients used in the bakes, verus the ordinary ones you buy from the normal bakeries thus paying a little more in terms of price for it.
Just always rmb this – you pay for what you get 一分钱一分货 luhs. And tbh, not super expensive; pricier for sure but still okay.
I really hope to try their signature doughnuts soon. Fingers crossed!P.s Puffs and Peaks will be opening a retail outlet soon in the East 🙂
And the other food I indulged in this Saturday as well?
Fried seaweed chicken.
A cup of NISSIN chilli crab instant noodles.
Gosh, I wasn’t supposed to indulge this weekend considering that I’ve been slacking off and enjoying alot of good food over the last week..rmb my decadent Mao Shan Wang?! Chocolate indulgences and more?! 😭🤦♀️
Furthermore, I didn’t do any exercise today to give myself a break even though I’m supposed to be on Day 19/28 of my #ChloeTing challenge.
Oh dear.. oh dear. I’d better make sure tomorrow will be better. And more importantly.. it doesn’t rain again!!
Don’t you feel that you feel more sluggish/less inclined to work out on such rainy days?At least there’s a beautiful view to admire at the end of the day though 😊
