I know I know. This bun looks rather unappetising. That was my first thought when my sister plopped a bag of 10 on the table and took one out. She insisted I try it immediately cos it was still warm from the oven. I wasn’t all that thrilled cos my lunch had also just arrived but thank goodness I didn’t have the heart to say ‘no’ to her expectant face.

Zero expectations can sometimes be a very good thing. I didn’t even know what filling it was. But what it was, was Very Good.  The bun is uber soft and you bite into a very smooth cream cheese filling with plump raisins inside. Absolute heaven. I got a nicer picture from their website :


An irresistible cottony-soft and flat bread filled with silky cream cheese and juicy raisins that gives the bread a full bodied flavor and wonderful aroma.

They aren’t overselling. It also explains why this is their best seller. Actually, they’ve been around for more than a year(why isn’t this bigger than it is?!) and I can’t believe this is my first taste.

I’ve been thinking of this everyday since. Me like very much!

Where’d these muffins come from?

It’s teatime!! What’s good is whatever a kind relative brings (Thanks Sis!). What’s a bonus is when whatever’s brought is yummy (Thanks again Sis!) 


I was initially inclined to judge it by its (lack of) packaging. A plain white box and old school looking paper holders. Luckily it came in a variety of flavors and that is always good for the want-more-choices consumer.

What I liked about it was that it didn’t taste too oily or too sweet, was soft to the bite, and flavorful in whatever flavor it was supposed to have (ie: chocolatey enough / blueberryish enough / cranberryish enough / cornish enough – u get the drift).

No surprise, the muffin was from a place as unassuming as its packaging – a foodcourt stall in Ubi Techpark called Love Bites. They cost from $1 – $1.20. Worth a try if you’re in the vicinity =)

Renee turned a month old last Sat 🙂 It spelt the start of us dining out(nothing new there cos we started with all our fav haunts) and me guzzling cold water like it’s going out of fashion(I hope my mom isn’t reading this!). 

We googled for buffet food and full month packages just the weekend before Renee’s month old party, and I was initially looking forward to blog about the buffet food. It did turn out truly blogworthy cos it was so bad but I don’t like to do bad reviews… Figured I’d share the full month package cos that fortunately was a hit =)


There were several things that I liked :
Firstly, ordering it (and customising the babycard!)was a breeze cos it was done online.

Secondly, the selection in the package has a mix of traditional items(red eggs/ang ku kueh) and current items(donuts/swiss roll/cupcakes/mochi). I got approving nods from the young and old alike!

Thirdly (and I always say this), packaging matters! I was very pleased seeing our guests leave with this pretty package in hand – The inside looked mighty pretty too =)


Oh the message on the cover is also customisable :


I really like this quote which explains why it’s on the box 😛

Finally, I’ll admit to being a little afraid that it’s all too good to be true and kept my fingers crossed that the food inside would actually be edible. It was. So much so I was happy to keep the extra boxes for personal consumption. My favourites were the swiss rolls and cupcakes. 

Sweetest Moments – saved the day for me!
