Asian Bakery Love: Reignited

I remember the time when Asian bakery chains like Breadtop and Barby’s started luring people into their brightly-lit stores. I was probably mid-way through high school and I have fond memories of mum bringing home soft, sweet and über moist Japanese bread buns. She was even adventurous enough to buy some taro buns once (this […]

Quirky Asian Snacks

I wasn’t planning on doing another product review so soon after the first but I’ve been so busy with essay writing, internships and reports etc that I will pull another convenient post out of my bag of tricks and hopefully you will approve.
