Traffic Jam, When You’re Already Late..

July 26, 2010 3 comments

When you’re already late, thank goodness for:

1. clothes that’s been pressed from the dry cleaners
2. car that is fully fueled
3. smart tag and it’s reloaded touch and go card
4. traffic light that is green all the way, AND
5. airasia that is always delayed.

Phew!!!

Macarons

July 17, 2010 8 comments

Do u like macarons?
I know u do, Kak Dilla.
Well if you do, u have got to try out Babycakes.
No. not justin bieber’s Baby song, but
Nicole Lynn and her sister, Valentina’s sweet delicacies.
They are not just good to look at,
they are definitely nice on the tastebuds.
Crispy thin crusts, and soft chewy middle with sweet and sticky variety of fillings to choose from.
If you haven’t had one, you are missing something.
My friend from school introduced me to it
which got me drooling.
I googled and came upon this review:
http://eatdrinkkl.blogspot.com/2010/06/babycakes-sweet-shoppe.html

I wasted no time and placed an order for 5 flavors:
Salty Caramel
Strawberry
Chocolate
Red Velvet, and
Orange.
There are 3 other flavors: Green Tea, Lemon and something that I forgotten. Sorry.

Strawberry, Caramel, Chocolate, Orange and RedVelvet

Though they do deliver to Putrajaya, I figured it was easier to have it deliver to Mr Suami’s office. However, he apparently didn’t realize how fragile it was, so when I received them, some were cracked.

My Cracked Macarons ;(

Anyway, here’s my review:
My search for macarons started when I chanced upon Aunty Yochana’s blog. But I have never tasted any macarons, therefore I don’t really know how macarons should taste like. But once I had a bite of Babycakes macarons, I know I am bought. I admit that I have a hell of a sweet tooth.

My favorite of the 5 is definitely Salty Caramel. It seems that if not for the filling, macarons taste rather mendatar. Not really bland.. but can’t find the right wordlah. So this salty caramel has an edge with its salty taste. So does strawberry with its sour taste. If i were to name it, I’d call it Strawberry Sorbet, because that’s what the texture and taste remind me of. Then comes chocolate with its slight bitter taste. But the macaron seem more fudgy compared to the rest. Red velvet is inspired the red velvet cake, of course. It’s filling is cream cheese and nutella. And last Orange. Ok, this is so not my favorite because somehow the filling tastes a bit like panadol syrup to me. And the most mendatar of the lot. I was expecting a tangy and sour taste, but not there. But that’s just me.
You, my friend, have to try it own your own.
Give a Nicole Lynn (012-219 0069)and Valentina (012-524 6877) a call or drop by their store.
