Snowskin mooncakes?

Are you thinking: these are mouldy mooncakes? No! These are Ice cream mooncakes that I just took out from fridge. And they are from Swensen's.

Thanks to Swensen's, for giving me the chance to try Strawberry Fields Forever and Sticky Chewy Chocolate flavour mooncakes. And you can try them if you purchase the limited edition Disney mooncakes, in the shape of Mickey, packaged in a colourful Mickey die-cut box – perfect for whole family and will interest the young ones to keep as a memento.

I like both, the chocolate flavour mooncake is not too sweet and the strawberry flavour has bits of strawberries and smell so good. One minus point is the skin, if the skin can be thinner, it will be perfect.

If you interested, can consider buying them before 9 Sept to enjoy early bird offer: 15% off with major credit cards.

Both the Swensen’s regular ice cream mooncakes and Disney mooncakes will be available at all Swensen’s and Earle Swensen’s outlets from 11 August to 30 September 2012.

Homemade Ice Lemon Tea

This is one of my favourite drink. That day I have craving for Kopi Tiam and/or restaurant homemade ice lemon tea at home, so I try to make my own super easy homemade version.

Ingredients: (2 glasses)
2 or more slices lemon
1 Ceylon tea bag (or any black tea)
White Sugar (and/or lemon honey) to taste
250ml water

1. Boil water in kettle.
2. Add tea bag in hot water. Leave for 3-5 minutes.
3. Add sugar(3-4 tsp, sweetness to your liking) and/or lemon honey, stir well.
4. Add lemon slices and use spoon to mash. Tea will turn slightly 'milky'.
5. Remove tea bag and add ice cubes before serve.

P.S.: I bought lemon honey from Daiso.

Love these Healthy Egg Tarts

My colleagues love Le Cafe Confectionary & Pastry's bean curd tarts. Guessed it's healthier than normal egg tarts and not as sweet. I was at the Veerasamy Road branch again with my colleague during lunch time and I was attracted to the photo on the wall showing different type of bean curd tarts, so I asked the lady boss do they sell all these flavor in a box, she said yes and she said left with last box. So since that was the last and I got to try all flavors, I bought a box of 8 mixed bean curd tarts finally.

Want to know what are the 7 flavours? From top left to right: Longan, original, grass jelly, gingko nut and white fungus; bottom left to right: peanut, original, red bean, egg white. A box of 8 cost $9.

The mixed bean curd tarts tasted like soy milk bean curd dessert rather than just tarts. My favorites are grass jelly, peanut and gingko nut and white fungus in beancurd.
