Piece Of Cake With Thin Icing

This piece of cake looks pretty with it’s colours and simple design. I like how thin the icing layer was, unlike some cake which has super thick and gooey icing which tastes disgusting.

 

 

I usually throw away the icing because it’s just fluffy, thick cream with not much taste and feels like fat in the mouth. I never understood how people like to press whip cream in their mouth and eat it just like that because I don’t like the taste much.

 

This cake’s thin icing was just nice and blended with the sweet syrup ribbons as the design, it tasted good.

Tortoise Shaped Mantou

Mantou is a Chinese word which means steamed buns in English. This pinkish-red tortoise-shaped mantou is quite cute.

 

 

It has not much of a taste and it tastes just like white bread inside. The outside layer is bitter because there’s too much of red colouring used.

 

 

A bit of a disgusting fact : After eating, mind you, your urine will look reddish, so don’t be shocked thinking you’re bleeding when in fact it’s just the colouring.  Not very healthy and I wouldn’t recommended to eat this everyday.

 

Centrepiece Decoration for Sabine and John

2 weeks ago, I attended Mōdere Brunch and Browse event, which I wrote about here. The event was held at their Straits Quay Condominium in Penang, Malaysia. I just thought it would be nice to bring a gift to Sabine and John’s home, as it is my first time visiting their residence. So I gave them a centrepiece decoration from Myle Enterprise which they can use to display at their event table and they can use it as decoration after the event.

 

 

In Malaysia, it is customary for certain race to bring a souvenir or gift when visiting their acquaintance, friend or family’s home, during their first visit or during celebration. I don’t meant to talk about race here, which some might avoid and think it’s rude to talk about race but this is good information for those who didn’t know. Not everyone practices this and some just bring themselves when invited to a friend’s home for celebration. You don’t have to bring something every single time you visit someone’s home and definitely you don’t need to bring something if you’re going to a place for business or meeting. It’s totally up to you.

 

For this case, although it is a business event I was attending, I was going to stay on after that to have a chit chat with Sabine and this is the first I’m visiting the place they stay, so I thought it would be nice to bring something. Their place was beautifully decorated and so clean. Sabine showed me around the condo and her bedroom was so pretty with a fairytale queen-like bed headboard and matching dressing table set. She did tell me about the people staying above her unit being noisy and I heard loud noises while I was there. I sympathize with her as I understand how horrible it feels to be staying at a place with inconsiderate people making loud noises, affecting other units. It’s quite shocking as Straits Quay is a high-end area and their residences are luxury range, so there would have been better behaved people and management to take care of these kind of unwanted nuisance. I hope someone does something about that noise at her place and stop it so that Sabine and John get to live comfortably.

 

I really enjoyed my time with them that day. We took some pictures that day at their products display table and also on the centrepiece.

 

Here is one of Sabine with her Mōdere products and the centrepiece.

 

 

The centrepiece is actually supposed to resemble a gold-centred flower bouquet from an artistic point of view. It is a unique handmade piece, which is making it’s first preview and Sabine got it. Aren’t you lucky, Sabine ?

 

 

Sabine and John started goofing around and turned the centrepiece into a microphone where they started to sing and talk with it. I have to say, the centrepiece does somehow resemble a microphone as well.

 

 

The first time I met Sabine and John, they were dressed up for one of  Internations’ event, which I wrote an article about at Myle Enterprise‘s blog. It was a casual setting for their event at their home that day. Sabine speaks about living a good, healthy life and together with John, she promotes Mōdere products.

 

Thank you, Sabine and John, for inviting me to your event that day, for your time spent with me and letting me try your Mōdere products. I had a great time with the scrumptious food you prepared and for your wonderful hospitality.
