I know this is late, but here’s my Valentine post (finally).
I split it into two parts, for day and night.
So here’s the daytime section:
I wore my heart neck dress with a thick pink sash, and my thin cream cardigan.
Paired it off with my ballet flats and a pearl drop headband.
I wanted to go for a pretty romantic look for the day, giving a nod to St. Valentine without going too over the top.
We decided to go for dim sum before I had to work.
I had heard good things about New Town Bakery & Restaurant, and really wanted to try their award winning buns and pastries.
They have a big steamer of buns on top of the building!
This is their award winning Chicken Deluxe Bun. It was packed with a variety of ingredients, and had great flavor. I couldn’t really make out the chicken though.. tasted more like pork to me hah.
This is another award winner; the Apple Tart. I loved this. It was like a normal strudel, but with super buttery/flaky pastry and nice gooey filling WITHOUT cinnamon. I hate cinnamon. Which is why I usually don’t like apple-y desserts. But this was just to die for.
The pork filled turnover is a Chinese bakery staple, but I had never heard of or tried the Prawn Turnover.
What. Have I been missing? This is like 100x better than the pork version. I really don’t know why it’s not more prevalent in Asian bakeries/supermarkets.
So I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day, and tune in for my part 2!
