Uber Yummy Cake

An aunt dragged me to her HS meeting/get-together this afternoon eventhough I suggested that I will just fetch her after the party ends. Actually, it also happens to be the belated birthday celebration of tita Margie (her HS buddy). Truth-be-told, I was a bit apprehensive about this gathering since my aunt is already an SC card holder. Hahaha. But its fun and I mean, F-U-N.

The meeting started a bit formally and they were discussing the venue, food, etc of their Golden Reunion next year. After a few minutes of formal meeting, they started to relieve High School memories such as loveteams (yes, loveteams), terror teachers (which include my mom, God bless her soul), and gossipped about marital problems, etc. And I thought that only we young people gossiped like that! Hahaha

So come dinnertime, they (including me, the youngest of the bunch) gathered at the table to partake a sumptuous meal of Savory chicken, fresh lumpia, pansit, mixed veggies, and a big tub of Nathaniel's buko pandan. I forgot to take photos because I was listening happily to ancient gossips. :D

The the piece de resistance ---- a homemade chocolate ganache cake with caramel and topped with almonds. So, so good! Alas, I had a senior moment episode also because I forgot to ask Tita Arlene for her daughter's number so that (hoping hoping) I can order a whole cake this December.

The cake was not that sweet (maybe tailor-fitted for the party), and super moist. *sigh*  I want another slice!!!

Nanyang: A Kopi Tiam in High Street

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.

Nanyang opened in Bonifacio High Street to satisfy that craving for authentic Singaporean noms even without a plane ticket.
