Granted it could be a biased opinion, since I adore anything that’s cream cheese cheesecake-y. But this one… I made them for the first time to be served at my birthday party recently, because blueberries and lemon went nicely with my theme colours: blue, white and yellow.
To my absolute delight and surprise, IT WAS A HUUUUGE HIT.
Getting compliments for my own bakes at my own 21st? It’s like the icing — or the blueberries? — on the cake!
After two months or so of planning, my 21st birthday party has finally come and gone!
With much help from K, my cousin Athalie and my family (with the last minute decor, ha)… Thank God the party was a success. Everyone enjoyed themselves, I do believe, and it went according to how I’d planned — more or less.
It’s never going to be perfect because of the perfectionist that I am (yikes), but even then.
For someone who has never been to Thailand, visiting the Thai enclave at Golden Mile Complex Singapore was quite an experience. And no better than to have two of my good buddies with me for my first time.
I don’t get serious cravings for Thai food, and my favourites hardly go beyond Phat Thai and Khao Niaow Ma Muang (mango sticky rice), but my friends happen to be big fans. And trusting their taste — plus the fact that they frequent BKK — we headed to the New Udon Thai Food eatery to satisfy our tummies with Moo Kata.
Moo Kata, which literally means “pork skillet”, is a traditional form of Thai communal eating. A large part of the Thai dining etiquette involves eating in large groups, something which we definitely learned to appreciate that night!
One will be easily spoiled for choice at The Line. Serving up a wide array of international cuisines, The Line could not better represent the diverse flavours you can find in little cosmopolitan Singapore — and all made with choice ingredients.
I had the pleasure of partaking in the buffet feast last Saturday, as part of a committee treat for some Hall committee I was involved in the past year. And, I must say that food is an excellent way to express appreciation (aha! the glutton in me speaks again).
Tried as I may, I was struggling to have a taste of everything available. But, alas, it was impossible. In the end, in the battle of (wo)man vs. food, food won this time!
