A and me made our very own Crème Brûlée and we were thrilled about sharing it!
It was her Mommy’s recipe and it was absolutely fabulous.
Her Mom bakes really well and I’m one lucky girl to be able to eat those yummy pastries and cakes
every now and then at her place! :p
I realised that recipe aside, skills and techniques are really important too.
Our Crème Brûlée didn’t turn out to be as pretty as the one her Mom made. Boohoo!
BUT STILL! We are proud of it. Hahaha.
The ingredients required are
380gm of UHT milk
380gm of Millac cream
6 normal sized egg yolks
100 to 130gm of sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
Measure out the milk and cream and mix them together in a pot.
Separate the egg yolks from the white and put them in a mixing bowl.
The eggs we had were pretty small so we added 8 in total. Heh!
Measure out your desired amount of sugar.
Pour the sugar into the egg yolks and mix well.
Do not whisk it too much until there is too much bubbles.
Heat the milk/cream mix until it’s almost boiling.
Pour the mixed yolk/sugar mixture in and stir quickly.
When it’s all mixed well, pour it through a sieve.
Pour into serving cups.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees & steam bake the cups for about 35-40mins.
Remove the cups when they are done.
The Crème Brûlée should have a “pudding” texture, not too watery.
Sprinkle some sugar on the surface of the Crème Brûlée and melt the sugar with a blow torch,
or put it back into the oven with high heat for a couple minutes until the surface is brown and crispy looking.
Refrigerate the dessert after it has cooled down a little.
TADAH! Crème Brûlée is done!
I love Crème Brûlée and it’s really amazing that we can make our very own Crème Brûlée in our kitchen now!
If you are also a big fan, do try it out and fix up a tray of yummy Crème Brûlée for you and your loved ones too.
I have been out and about eating and drinking. Hahaha!
But before I head on and talk about what I’ve been doing, let me share the winners of the SIXPEGS Giveaway!
If you have seen the giveaway entry, you will know that I have 3 sets of outfits to give away.
The giveaway was held on my Facebook Page.
And the three winners for Miki, Elsie and Wilma are Hong Jingting, Tan Xinyi and Janice Seah respectively.
I’ll be in touch with you via Facebook shortly! :)
A and I have been trying to catch this super yummy Hokkien Mee at Toa Payoh but to no avail.
We went there twice and for the two times, we didn’t manage to get the noodles.
ALWAYS SELL UNTIL FINISH EH! Annoying!
Ate the Mee Hoon Kway instead but it’s really yummy too!
I really love Mee Hoon Kway (more than Hokkien Mee actually), so yup!
Blessing in disguise. Heh!
Met Lilian for drinks at Serangoon after our lunch too!
That’s her in my granny glasses.
Bought it for $25 at Cineleisure and it’s super cute!
I wanna change the lens too something of a better quality too.
Anyone knows how much it costs to change to proper lens?
After much persuasion by A, I caved in and went to queue for 老伴 tao hway with her.
Yes yes I know I am super suagu becuase I never eat before. Hahaha.
Yes yes, I admit. It IS yummy. Hahaha!
The queue was super long lah!
And random photo of us at my favourite Boon Tong Kee!
Headed out again the next day to meet up with the girls!
We had dinner at Gustimo at Orchard ION and went for drinks at Robert Timms.
I also want to share this rather cool website called Food Panda I tried the other day.
It has a list of restaurants under it and you can actually order food from the website,
and the food will be delivered to you!
It rocks for me because there are days when I’m lazy and I don’t wanna eat MacDonalds or other fast food.
I tried it and ordered Indian Food for Mom, my brother, A and myself!
Yummy food and it’s super shiok to have lunch delivered right to my house. Heh!
Pardon my messy photos. Hahaha!
Dinner earlier today was at Pow Sing Restaurant at Serangoon Chomp Chomp area!
I’m a huge chicken rice fan! :3
I did another ukulele cover of First Of The Gang today.
Will share it really soon!
Do check back if you like my crooning away! :)

This is one of the many dresses that A actually likes (on me).
And I think the shade of green is gorgeous too!
Many thanks to Paper Buttons for the lovely dress.
Really love the orange suede bag from Kate Love as well!
Courtesy of Paper Buttons and Kate Love, and also matching nail polishes from Nail Splash,
I have personally picked some apparels, bags and polishes to give away!
IT’S PRESENTS TIME, GIRLS!
Here are the three outfits to be given away.
I have named them according to how they “feel” like. Heh!
The quality of the apparels, bags and nail polishes are all really good and I’m sure you’ll love them when you receive them too!
The first outfit is Wilma.
Look smart, confident and comfortable with yourself in this getup!
The wide leg pants is absolutely gorgeous and the material is oh-so-comfortable.
White sleeveless blouse, high-waist wide leg pants and school bag satchel.
Along with this outfit, you will also receive O.P.I’s Pepe’s Purple Passion nail polish!
The second outfit is called Elsie.
Be that happy-go-lucky girl who is always perky, casual and interesting!
The asymmetrical top is suitable for casual or more corporate getups too.
I love the outfit with the Essie School of Hard Rocks nail polish.
The little tinge of green on the fingertips will definitely stand out!
The third outfit is a happy looking one!
I love the lightweight cardigan with the pretty prints.
I matched it with the bright yellow clutch with cute metal handles to give the getup some colour.
I love the mandarin collar on the white blouse too!
The white blouse, cardigan, high waist shorts and yellow clutch comes with this pretty China Glaze Pelican Grey nail polish too!
I love this colour!
This is how you can bring home one of this three outfits!

Moving on, A and I went back to our favourite international buffet haunt for another hearty meal.
This time, we brought Sinsin and LTK there as well!
I’m loving my huge sack top and new shoes from ASOS.com! Love love love!
Our crazy looking nails and huge comfortable tops!
The buffet I’m talking about is at Spize at Park Royal Hotel at Kitchener Road.
It’s really cheap, and you can get another 20% with NTUC card or 15% if you pay with UOB cards.
The bill came up to about $30 per pax that day.
Super value for money considering the massive amount of fresh sashimi we ate!
Oh! I LOVE how the place is always so empty too. Hahaha.
We went to catch “This Means War” at Orchard Cineleisure after the dinner and I bought this new pair of glasses!
Yay I LOVE!
A and I went back to Jalan Riang where Wimbly Lu was.
But this time round, we checked out The Fat Cat which is just round the corner!
They serve Western, Thai and Indian cuisine over here and we tried the Thai and Indian today.
They were all pretty awesome!
The place is pretty much like a kopitiam with pretty decor and servers.
There are three “kopitiam stalls” in there and each serve different food!
You can find beer and other alcoholic drinks in here too.
Will be back with more updates soon!
Hear from you regarding the SIXPEGS giveaway soon!
